I love the modern feel of the inside. They kept the original outside with a cool hip renovation inside. I didn't like that most the rooms don't have a refrigerator and I don't like the waterfall shower head but that's just my personal preference.
It was a cool design, the staff was great, parking was easy and the location was great. I didn't like a warm shower in the middle of winter. I'm going back to Boise quite a bit, and will not be staying there. There are cheaper hotels that are just as comfortable. Maybe not as chic, but just as comf.
The rooms are gorgeous, modern, quiet, and green!!! The bed was extremely comfortable, it felt you feel like I was sleeping on a cloud. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. They offered me and delivered to my room, a small refrigerator. The food was fantasitic and the atmosphere was quaint and nice with an outside private eating area and firepit. The hotel is in a perfect location within blocks of downtown and is half a block from one of the best breakfast and coffee places ever! And the hotel conveniently has a free shuttle to airport. Overall, I loved my stay at the Modern Hotel and would definitely recommend it! The hotel is two stories and doesnt have an elevator.
There was delicious food in the bar. Located near a lot of activities. Staff was friendly and helpful even though we left early. The hotel is a remodeled Travel Lodge. Cinder block front doesn't block much of the street noise. Between emergency vehicles and pedestrian traffic, we didn't leave rested.
The modern throwback rooms and the great gas fires outside. Good appetizers and food starting at 4 pm and nighttime campfire fun! In the Linen Disrict near some great bakery's and cafes. Will definitely stay here again. Super showers!!!! Small bathroom with no counter space but awesome showers!
Great location for downtown access. Very clean and comfortable room. Top notch decor and amazing bedding! We enjoyed our Idaho Spud Bars upon check in. Will stay here again!
Very loud noise from kitchen area all night.
Reservation wasn't held. Kicked me out.
Very nice and very clean! Great location and easy to find. Would definitely recommend and stay again!!
The room was spacious and comfortable. It was clean. There wasn't a microwave in the room. We had to leave at 6:30 before the breakfast, so we didn't get to take advantage of that.
We arrived during the March Madness basketball tournament and I was hoping to catch the second half of a game. The first room had a TV connection issue. When I called, I assumed they would send up someone to connect wires or hit some buttons to set up the TV properly. Instead, they put us in a new room within 5 minutes of my phone call. I saw the entire second half of the game. Thank you.
I love the modern look of the rooms. Very spacious, big pull out couch and living room area, big flat screen TV, refrigerator. Delicious complimentary breakfast. Great deal for just under $100. The staff seemed a little incompetent. We ordered room service and then they called us almost an hour later and said we have to come down to the lobby to carry up our own food. When I got down there they had four plates and three drinks sitting on their front desk counter. I asked if they at least had a tray I could use but they said the one tray they had was stolen. So I had to take a couple trips to carry up all my food. And the room service food was terrible and basically inedible so it was a waste of money. But their breakfast food was great. The bathrooms in our room did not have a sanitary strip around the toilet but there were some in the droor so it was clear they are supposed to use them. I called the desk to ask for a couple more pillows and a blanket because we wanted to use the pull out bed from the couch for our kids and there was not bedding for that bad in the room. The woman at the front desk seemed very put out and said they only have a small number of extra pillows in the whole hotel, but they eventually brought them to us. So if I would have just stayed in the hotel without ordering room service or needing any help from the staff I would have given a great review because I did love the room for a great price. They just need a little help with customer service.
The staff was very helpful and worked hard to offset the minor inconveniences of a new ownership in an older hotel building. They are in the middle of upgrading, but have a ways to go. The location has some very nice points like access to the Boise greenbelt and good restaurants nearby. The laundry facilites are due for an upgrade, still working the bugs out of their internet.
VERY friendly and helpful staff~from girls at the front desk to gentleman in the hospitality room to housekeeping staff! ! Lovely location next to river with extensive green belt for walking our dog. Very good experience overall. Facility is in need of TLC. Furniture in our room was very worn. Shower worked but I couldn't run just water for a bath.
The beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was nice, although the floor was not level around the door or bath area. TV's and wifi were great. This room was by an entrance, next to the pool and the breakfast area. The refrigerator was THE loudest one I've ever heard. So, unless you are getting a GREAT deal, THAT room is not a great room. Its on the first floor.
after telling the kiddo for five hours of driving that we were goong to go swimming, the pool was "closed for 24 hours". when i explained our dissapointment at check in i was abrupty told that i could cancel my reservation. overall, the place is clean, worn out and out of the way. dont expect to walk anywhere and the free breakfast looked terrible.
This is our second time at this place. The walks on the river and views are beautiful. THe breakfasts are ok, and are convenient. Hotel was quiet and restful. We are going there again for Boise family weekend. Maid left towel in room, and thought only 2 folks were there, had to call room service for more towels, but they were very prompt.
Loved the pool and sauna, breakfast was nice Neighborhood felt sketchy
I mean, it's a $65/night hotel - what do you want? It was clean and comfy and the staff was really nice and helpful.
5 HBO channels Pet friendly Great breakfast all the way to 11:00 Superior Staff Microwave fridge in room Beauty location Value priced It's a bit tricky to navigate to and from this little gem tucked between two one way streets right on the river.
This place has improved over the old Shilo Inn but still needs a lot more updating to be truly nice. New furniture, bedding, floor coverings, some lighting, TVs and appliances. Single pane windows, old drapes, wallpaper, bathroom fixtures and tile. Crumbling lampshades, tile around tub not clean.
Dirty bathroom with clogged drains.
I liked that it was connected to the green belt. It was at a convenient location to get to downtown. Our room was poorly cleaned. It looked like the bathroom floor had not been mopped, and the sink was plugged up.
Very clean, friendly and comfortable beds Could hear next door room
The large bathtub For the amount of money you pay to stay, access to cheaper snacks and drinks. Staff was unseen until am
Very nicely decorated. The inclusion for breakfast and the evening reception was also very nice. The typical hotel bed was somewhat uncomfortable.
The breakfast was awesome, the cooks did great customizing each omelette. The pool area has an additional 1 ft kiddy pool great for toddlers. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Great location.
It was clean and comfy and the staff was very welcoming and nice. The bathrooms are way nice with a separate shower and huge tub. The fridge also had a little freezer box and the.microwave could fit my daughters bottle which was great! It's just off the freeway and surrounded by good restaurants.
It was quiet Nothing
Nothing Front office staff. Not friendly. Quite rude.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were very uncomfortable. The rooms wasn't 100% clean. Breakfast consisted of Apple nuice, orange juice, cereal and yougart. They were remodeling the outside and it was very loud. Hall ways smelt like smoke.
Loved the room Front desk staff really needs customer service training. They were too focused on smoke breaks as well as smoking right outside the front door. They used vulgar language while talking to co workers while guest were present. They were slow took them 30 minutes to check in a guest. My room key didn't work half of the time had to wait over a hour to get another one made..HORRIBLE
The air conditioner was terrible.
Staff was Helpful Bed looked like it had been used already and there were no toiletries
Staff was polite Uncomfortable bed, nasty shower, too small of blankets for bed, smelled funny. Get what you pay for.
Everything was great Not a very good lay out.
Price was right. Towels were old, room was not completely cleaned after our first night. Our safety lock on our door was broken and the outside secure door was not secure at all and remained unlocked all night. Group traveling with us, in another room, did not have their room cleaned after first night.
Price was right ... Room clean, decent decor. Thin walls, lower room had cars parking in front of room window. Very noisey guests...
Parking was very limited. Had to park out on the street.
Price was cheap. It was dirty. Evening staff unfriendly. Morning staff good.It was yhe worst Super 8 we have ever stayed at.
Room was clean and well-appointed. Great for parents with a grown daughter. Also, we were up on the top floor and it was nice & quiet. Shower had excellent water pressure and actually had little shelves to hold your toiletries. Beds were comfortable & bedding was clean. The hot breakfast was very good - waffles were awesome! Despite it being quite busy that morning, there was plenty of food. Daughter slept in sofa bed and was cold - the heat didn't quite reach that area of the room.
Great customer service. Casey was very helpful and concerned about our comfort. Thank you!
Housekeeping and reservation staff was very friendly and helpful. The weekend breakfast attendant hustled and kept all of the breakfast stations supplied. Carpet throughout is horribly dirty, which affected my feeling of the total facility cleanliness.
Staff was really friendly and helpful.
That was probably the most comfortable bed I've ever been on - I wanted to put it on the top of my car and bring it home with me. The toilet was difficult to flush...not impossible, but it had an issue.
We loved the breakfast and the cookies in the evening. Lovely and inviting lobby area to relax and read. The bed was too soft for our liking.
Loved the helpful front desk staff and great hot breakfast. Location was a little difficult to access from the highway
It was very clean, quiet during the night. Staff was friendly. It was a good stay the room was great. The price was a little on the high side but overall it was fantastic
Clean rooms. They totally messed up the billing and I still haven't got it straightened out.
I liked the pool being open 24/7... Also the redesigned look Nothing
Great Location , comfort bed , great staff
Clean and comfortable, friendly and attentive staff.
great as usual!
Great atmosphere, relaxing, professional, and no disturbances. All around amazing experience! We didn't get to spend more time there... But that wasn't Hotel 43's fault!
Good location HVAC system was terribly noisy. Each time it turned on we were woken up.
The staff were incredibly friendly and professional as you would expect. The best part was how friendly they were which reflects what I have seen of most Boise citizens. They greet you each time you come in and the valet was quick to help with directions or any requests made. Cafe and restaurant are solid options for the city. The hotel was obviously older and renovated. Bathrooms were lackluster and products in the room were not what I would expect from a boutique hotel like this one. Wireless internet could barely stream Pandora and anything greater than that was out of the question.
This hotel had an actual 'Courtyard' with a huge fire pit and wonderful chairs in a beautiful setting with lots of trees and even a water feature!
Rain ran off the roof onto to A/C unit and it was very noisy. They moved us but confessed this is a problem. Don't stay on the 4th floor if it is raining.
Nice atmosphere, updated furnishing. Walking distance to downtown (about 1 mile) and Whole Foods Market was on the next block. There was no continental breakfast, we had to leave the hotel to eat. There were a la carte items available at the "market" concession in the lobby.
Breakfast not included. Only had a bistro with counter service. Not what I felt was within walking distance to downtown restaurants.
Indoor pool/hot tub, spacious suite, wifi, friendly staff, very quiet, beautiful grounds, 12:00 pm checkout, proximity to shopping/entertainment/dining, climate controlled and modern rooms. Floors were dirty underneath beds.
All the staff were very friendly and super accommodating.
This hotel felt fresh and new. Beds were very comfortable, and large pool and work out facilities. Everything was clean.
Front desk staff. very friendly and helpful the third floor where I stayedsmelled like mildew. In the cleaning crew word very very obnoxious and noisy. It sounded like they were doing construction all morning. I have never been so irritated when staying at a hotel.
Hot breakfast Seating format for breakfast
The staff was amazing. Rooms clean. Pillows were hard to sleep with, not nearly firm enough.
Location is superb...central to the best shopping/dining/entertainment district in downtown Boise. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but that's probably just a reflection of the people of Boise/Idaho. Nice, nice people everywhere. lobby/hallway carpeting is older and dirty. Everything else is very well maintained and clean.
The entire staff was attentive and friendly. Nancy was a true professional behind the bar!
We loved the valet parking. Downtown. Walking distance to a lot of places. Bed was ok. Pillows were ok. We both woke up with neck aches. The towel rack IN FRONT of the bathroom sink was very awkward. Trying to lean over and wash your face in the sink was not comfortable, and put added pressure on my low back! Why aren't the towel racks on the EMPTY wall next to the sink?!
The view from our window was great for my girls! Ordered breakfast the night before to be delivered at 8:30AM showed up 45 mins late. Paid $18 dollars to have my car get parked only to get a parking ticket! Still no one has returned my call and the front desk did nothing!!
The workers where nice The door was open even when it was closed. The walls need painting. The fire alarms where dirty not sure they would even work. The heater didn't work.
Inexpensive & perfect location for the Airport. Fine staff, and they are busy converting from a Sleep Inn to a Rway
Free WiFi and clean room Staff was horrible! I was charged $50 for my service dog. I wentered to the front desk to talk to the manager. The woman up front (angus skellenger) identified herself as the general manager. She said she could charge if she wants even for service animals and if I didn't leave she would call the police. I left and luckily my bank took care of the unauthorized charge.
The how cheap the room was for the purchase! All night long people were yelling and kids were crying! None of the staff did anything about it!
Convenient location for travel--driving or flying! Dim lights in eating area...
Had to pay for breakfast. $11/person. There wasn't a continental breakfast.
We were there for a wedding, it was the perfect location. It was a very nice hotel and will stay there again. You had to pay for breakfast. I am not a morning person and don't usually eat breakfast so everyone goes to the hotel and we sit around they eat I drink coffee. We did not feel that comfortable there.
Everyone what very nice and accommodating. The pool and workout area were very nice and well equipped with good equipment. You could smell smoke in the room whenever the bathroom fan came on, so much so that it was difficult to take a deep breath.
We were greeted with a warm smile upon arrival and then every time we returned back to the motel. It was the quickest, smoothest check in that we have ever had in our travels. As we left, we were told to have a wonderful day. Having to leave.
No free breakfast
Clean, comfy, great breakfast. Parking lot was a little bit of a mess, but that was due to the Hampton Inn Remodle.
Very well decorated. Very roomy Kids slamming the door and running the hallway all night. This was directly under the hotel security camera and phone in our room did not work
The rooms were clean and tidy. We had a microwave to warm the food that we had packed for our journey. The staff was courteous and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was prepared fresh and had enough options. In many other hotels we have had to go to a local Whole Foods or similar place to get breakfast.
Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly. No complaints.
Comfy bed and pillows. Clean updated room. Kinda dark bathroom with only one vanity light over sink, but didn't use the shower anyway.
The managers were nice and easy to talk to. Also Breakfast area is clean and presented nicely.
Rooms clean and comfortable. Bathroom updated
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Set breakfast out for us early and made sure we had a ride to the airport for our early morning flight. Would definitely stay here again! It was a little pricey, since we were only there for about 5 hours. But everything else was fantastic.
Very clean and comfortable. Looks newly updated with contemporary lighting, furniture, finishes, bed and bath. Large glass enclosed shower and modern bath amenities including big towels. Comfortable king bed and quiet room/location.
I loved the staff. Clean rooms. A nice romantic getaway!
Central location The hotel placed me in a smoking room (never disclosed in any part of my booking). Javier was less than helpful trying to get the room situation resolved, and seemed uninterested when I was asking him what options we had. Ultimately the most helpful thing he did was offer to cancel my reservation...
