Looking at the outside, The Modern looks ordinary, at least this time of year, but don't let that fool you. Such a great place, with a very cool Boise vibe. The bathroom even has heated floors! The regular rooms don't have a fridge, but you can request one- I didn't realized until we were leaving, oh well, next time! The...

We really enjoyed this hotel. They've converted a "motor inn" to a great little boutique hotel. Great balance of style and comfort. We were there on a Sunday so it was quiet. The restaurant was great, especially the service which was kind and quick and the chopped salad, spinach salad and dumplings.

We live in Boise and sometimes for special occasions when you just want too get away from home this will always be our go to place! Next time I will reserve earlier to get the soaking tub room! Great bar!

This is a hip hotel with mostly good service. They let me check in a little early. The rooms are decorated in a cool retro way. Ordered drinks and dessert by the outside fire pits. It was very good with great service. It was disappointing that I requested a quiet room and they referenced my request at check-in but they...

If you would like to stay at a hip, comfortable place where the parking is easy and the restaurant is excellent, this is your place. The price is great, the rooms are clean and the linens and pillows excellent. I highly suggest the Modern for that night before your early flight out of Boise!

Excellent place to stay. I highly recommend it. The rooms sell out fast so book ahead. The location is great. The outdoor patio is very welcoming, even on a cool evening. Walking distance to great downtown eating, theaters, and bars.

Truly the best of renovated motels with the added plus of great small plate dining, and included breakfast on weekdays. We've stayed here multiple times to break up the drive between Portland and Idaho skiing, and always love it.

The Bed was very comfortable, this is a priority for my husband and the Modern Hotel gets a gold star on the mattress. The staff wonderful and check in was easy. The rooms were retro and you can imagine families staying there in the 50's.

This is a small venue in the colder months but spills out onto a patio area with fireplaces on warmer evenings. We arrived about 6pm and happy hour was in full swing. Some items are specialty priced but there is no happy hour menu. Also a full bar is available so if you can not find a fun drink to...

I stayed in a King room on the first floor in the interior portion near the ice machine- the room itself felt a bit small but comfortable and the bathroom is huge. We had dinner in the restaurant our first night, which was fantastic and the free breakfast is also great. My only real complaint is that noise travels easily,...
