Good hotel with a strong music theme.....although there is a biased towards Jazz there is live music most days that is varied.
The staff are friendly and efficient special mention to Brandy, Valerie, Nancy Angie and Cindy
who have offered exceptional service and making my long term stay enjoyable.
The food is good but after week one has become tired, the daily special has been a lifesaver.
The location is idyllic being on the river side but its not downtown, which for me was a drag when wanting to explore.
The Hotel and Sandbar Grill are popular with the locals and that always speaks volumes.
So far I'm delighted with my new temporary home and will post further reviews if applicable.

This hotel is so nice, so clean, so well maintained that you will want it as a destination. First, thanks to Steven at the front desk and Harold, the banquet manager, for their hard work. This property is meticulously maintained from the top down, and has every convenience a traveler would require, and then some. The pool area is spacious with lots of tables and chairs, and even has a little "spray and sprinkler" where little ones can romp and get wet without actually being in a pool. The new Sandbar Patio bar had dollar beers at happy hour and reasonable tasty food. At night the pool area was romantic with fairy lights. The room was large two extra easy chairs. Get a room with a patio on the river unless you want to keep an eye at the pool on the kids. The indoor restaurant has a breakfast buffet ($10.99) and a Sunday buffet, including mimosas ($16.99) with a terrific selection of foods, fruits, and pastries. Even the coffee was good. The facility is complete with banquet rooms and a cozy quiet room with garden windows for a peaceful drink or read. Don't miss this place!

Room Tip: River side rooms are quiet, and upper floors have nice decks.

Last week we stayed at the Riverside Hotel in Boise. The Sandbar Patio Bar & Grill was an outstanding feature during our stay. Valeri was a great bartender, courteous, and friendly. and should be commended. She was a very good server. We made it a part of our late afternoon evening experience to dine and drink there. The location of the Hotel and sandbar overlooked the beautiful river. We plan to come back again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the river.

My husband and I stayed at the Riverside for three nights over Mother's Day weekend. The weekend breakfast buffet was world class and the dinners were outstanding. I had the salmon salad twice it was perfectly prepared and the service outstanding.
We were impressed by the professionalism of the front desk, housekeeping and restaurant staff. Walking the green belt was an added surprise. Hope I can return during the summer and enjoy their beautiful swimming pool and outdoor cabana. It is like being at a resort.

Room Tip: We had a mini suite and the only complaint was the ice machine during the night.

I attended an event at the hotel in the Sapphire Room. The room is small enough to feel cozy and has great ambiance. My waitress, Nancy, was terrific, so knowledgable and helpful. The food and wine was excellent and a great value. Be sure you ask to see the full menu as the bar snack menu is pretty limited.

The hotel is lovely and the lobby bar is a great place to meet for a cocktail.

This hotel is a must for everyone that visits beautiful Boise. The room was fantastic and the restaurant was wonderful. The river walk is terrific when the temperature is nice and the rest of the property is truly delightful. The entire staff was very nice and helpful. The folks at the front desk were the best. The night manager, Zepher I believe, was awesome. She gave us a room tour before we checked in. She was friendly and super knowledgeable. I highly recommend this fantastic hotel.
