I lived in this hotel for a year. You are about 50 yards from the Boise River and the green belt, that goes for miles and miles. In just a few blocks you are right in the middle of down town. The owners are friendly and offer discounts for longer stays. Free WIFI and cable TV. I was last there...

The other reviewer has it completely right in her summation of the rude ownership. While I was staying here and was paid through a week my card stopped working on the second day. The owner instead of politely dropping what she was doing and issuing me a new card told me rudely to wait until she finished the totally unimportant...

When this was The Econo Lodge it was a very nice place to stay. Now I will not stay there with the new ownership. The front desk clerk was very rude and snappy. He lost his cool and was very disrespectful. After standing at the window for 20 minutes waiting for someone to help us he finally showed up. Obviously...

I was offered the special rate of $33/night for my 10-night stay so I went for it. First I'll mention the positives... Free internet with a strong connection even from the 3rd floor. Refrigerator and microwave were included in the room and the price was reasonable. The negatives... When I entered the bathroom I discovered a thick black residue along...

This hotel is my favorite. I had 3 rooms and 7 people. They have everything! There was a free contenental breakfast, 24 hour apple and orange juice and coffee, free high speed wireless internet, elevator, restaurants, and an amazing deal. I got one room for $40. It was clean, quiet, cozy, and if you went somewhere else you would be...
