First I will say I travel a lot/ so I've seen everything---or so I thought! Just the facts first...if you are driving thru Boise and need a room this may work. It's located near the river and fairly close to downtown. 3 story building with a good size parking lot. They do have an elevator but sometimes they tell you... More

The owners are rude, inconsiderate and threatened to contact police because we "didn't keep room clean". I explained the maid could take care of that after we checked out. The light and bathroom fixtures were all coming off and ice bucket and ashtray both had holes in them.

The elevator didn't work, the king bed had queen size pad so about 1/3 of the bed had just a sheet over the rough mattress, the upholstered chair was so dirty we wouldn't even put luggage on it, the door to the bathroom was so warped it was de-laminated and shredded. It wouldn't take much investment to make it a... More

After looking at other hotels in the neighborhood, we were pleasantly surprised by the Boise Inn. The staff matched a price we had found online and gave us a nice room near an exit. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and well lit. The bed was comfortable and the TV was small but nice. Parking was easy, convienet, and well... More

I believe this used to be an Econo Lodge, then became the Vista Inn and is now the Boise Inn. The current owners do make attempts to keep it clean but the entire building as well as the rooms are in need of extensive maintenance. By maintenance, I am referring to several rooms with broken windows which are visible from... More
