Friendly staff in lobby, clean updated rooms, perfect downtow atmosphere without the same old feel of a chain hotel. I will definitely use this hotel in the future and recommend to friends and family.

I'm often torn when divulging a favorite spot...whether where morels push their convoluted heads through the earth or hot springs gush out of the earth or a spot untravelled and untrampled...but such is Modern Hotel and Bar. Discover it, but then share it only with those you know to be special who will appreciate this incredible find...staff, food, rooms. A...

My husband and I stayed one night at the Modern and can highly recommend it...especially when considering the reasonable price. Don't be mislead by the fairly ordinary mid-century exterior. The reception area, restaurant/bar, and rooms are tastefully decorated in a modern, hip -- yet warm-- style. The bed was comfortable with nice linens, and the updated shower was exceptional. We...

Stayed here one night on business. The room was clean and the bed was cozy. I really enjoyed the restaurant. Hand-crafted drinks by their friendly bartenders! Not to mention, the Lamb meatballs were amazing!

The location is perfect, you can walk everywhere: bars, great restaurants, entertainment, etc. The rooms are nice and the showers are huge! The bar is amazing with great food as well. Very friendly staff. My favorite part was using the free bikes to ride around and explore.

I was leary about booking this hotel/motel. But I went for it anyway and I am so happy I did. The check in was seamless, he was so nice and gracious. The room was remodeled beautifully and was extremely clean. I read through the hotel information and noticed they have small refrigerators - I called the front desk for one...

Traveling without kids, we didn't need a hotel with a lot of "to do" stuff. The Modern was perfect! It was impeccably clean and maintained with a hip mid-century feel. The staff was friendly, informative, and welcoming. Although already an ideal location within walking distance to anything downtown, we loved having the option to borrow some of their bikes for...

I stay here each time I come to visit family in Boise. I love the rooms, the bar - wonderful cocktails - the food, the staff and the location! I have been a regular customer since one year after the opening and have seen the quality and service improve over time rather than decrease which is sometimes unusual. Although I...

While the bed was very soft, the shower (with two showerheads!) was great, and the decor was attractive, the noise level at this hotel made sleep restless. We stayed at the room fathest from the restuarant/bar but had street noise all night, noise from people walking around or using the plumbing, and generally a disruptful night. The restaurant/bar were great...
