On a revisit this Holiday Inn Express did not disappoint. The room (317) had nice mountain views and microwave and refrigerator behind cabinet doors. In room coffee is now by Keurig coffeemaker and housekeeping is generous with the kcups. The breakfast buffet, in addition to all else, now boasts an automatic pancake maker which quickly makes a good product. On...

I spent Christmas Eve at this hotel. The staff starting from the shuttle driver, to the front desk staff to the breakfast attendants were all very kind and helpful. Rooms were clean, modern and comfortable.

The rooms were clean and the breakfast was fresh and had lots of choices. Staff was friendly even we arrived very late at night. We were able to walk to the downtown area and several good restaurants.

Travelling from SLC to Idaho stopped at this Holiday Inn Express - great location, close to the highway yet very quiet. Extremely nice and helpful hotel staff, including Moldavian born receptionist. Available late night snack, good breakfast, clean room. Nice décor of the hotel.

So this holiday inn was nice and clean. Decent breakfast bar and recently renovated. The bikes rental are cheap and you can leave them locked up anywhere downtown. It's a good location but if you do want to go to a decent restaurant nearby and don't have a car prepare to walk OR uber.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Its newly constructed so everything works for it. Rooms are clean and well managed. View from hotel is amazing. I enjoyed my daily nature walks next to Boise River. One major issue with the hotel is immature staff. Specially ones in the evening, I assume they are college dropouts and have no...

Been staying here for months. The staff is extremely friendly, professional and willing to take care of any problem that arises. Always greet you when you walk in and notice you when you leave. Helpful when asked questions and willing to go that extra mile when you need something, whether advice for eating or taking you downtown in their shuttle....

My husband and I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express and had a great time.  We saw a concert across the street at the Taco Bell Arena. As soon as we checked in we were told that someone there would be happy to give us a ride to the Arena.  They took us up to the line.  It was wonderful....

I checked in yesterday and left immediately for work purposes. I generally don't get in until late and am very hungry. I stopped at the desk to ask about local food at 11:45pm. Katie was working the front desk. She had all the answers I needed, a kind and sweet personality, and a manner that quickly expressed her readiness to...
