Red Lion accepted my bid for a room for a recent business trip. Previous reviews stated that Red Lion put those types of guests in sub-standard rooms, but I did not find that to be the case. I requested a room with one bed when I checked in, was asked which floor I wanted to be on, and was assigned...

I stay here for business several times a year over the last 15 years. The bar menu is excellent... ask Amber what the specials are and don't over-order as the portions are large... I shared an elevator with the other gal in the bar who was bussing the tables (didn't catch her name) who told me about how comfortable the...

It starts with the airport shuttle, Jimmy and Ron are the greatest! They are over the top friendly and courteous. The front desk staff, Pedro and Beka are also super friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The room floor is a wood laminate, no nasty carpet. The beds are very comfortable. I would definitely recommend.

This was the best hotel experience I have ever had to date. 5 star experience. Jimmy the van driver was fantastic as well as Ron. I'd like to say thanks to Rebecca for helpful tips on restaurants. Can't wait to come back!

The check-in process took a while due to the computer system having issues. The standard king room was nothing special. Great location. The room came with free breakfast, but didn't have a chance to use it.

A friend and I went to Boise for a weekend visit. We hadn't been there for years.....used to go there for business in our working days. The service at the hotel was excellent. Yes, it is a bit away from the downtown area, but that was compensated for by their shuttle van and driver that were at our disposal. They...
