“If You Book Anywhere Else in Boise, You're An Idiot.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Clean, fresh, modern, and the price is right. Need I say more? Better than the Hampton Inns, Better than the Modern Hotel, it's what you want in a hotel in Boise. Apparently, I need to say more, this site won't publish my comment unless I continue writing. The place is great, keep up the good work.

This is a very nice hotel. I consider one of the best Holiday inn express. I was used to the traditional express (nice but no frills hotel) but this one exceeded my expectations. The breakfast area is very nice and modern; the rooms are spacious and the staff is very friendly.

Room Tip: Room with view to the mountains are the way to go. :)

I stayed three days at the Holiday Inn Express in Downtown Boise. The remodeled hotel is amazing! The rooms are spacious and beautifully done. They have a great breakfast with great choices and the best coffee ever! I appreciated their visitor screen that had local restaurants and addresses, air schedules, weather, etc. It is so close to business area and Boise State. The staff were so friendly and it was a wonderful stay. Will visit and stay here again!

Great hotel with a new remodel.
Upon realization that I made a reservation for January NOT November, Holiday Inn Express management was great to still give me a room at a competitive rate. Chris understood my error and was happy to get me in!
Close to downtown, great parking, and a totally renovated hotel top to bottom.
thanks Boise!

We booked this as an "express deal" on Priceline, and we were so pleased with the place! It just opened after being remodeled in August 2013. They did a great job!

We loved:
The lounge area where breakfast was served.
The overall design and decor was modern and very pleasing!
The room and bathroom were comfortable, roomy and quiet!

If you have an opportunity to stay here, do it!

Room Tip: I think they are all great!

Nicely done new hotel, Modern design, Very clean. Walking distance to BSU less than a mile to state buildings or downtown. For me it was next to Albertsons HQ . Quite a few eating places right next to the hotel. Mexican restaurant, RedRobin and Boise finest restaurant Barbacoa Grill. I will definitely recommended this hotel.

I don't know why they call this Holiday Inn Express Boise "Downtown". It's definitely more on the outskirts than in the center. But this was no problem for us, as we arrived rather late and left again early next morning. The welcome was friendly and the quality of the room was very good. Clean, spacious, quiet and excellent beds. We also liked the heated indoor pool and the delicous complimentary breakfast. If you look for a great steak house in Boise, go to Chandlers. Great place and great food! Should we come back to Boise, we will not even think to book another hotel.
