Stayed only two nights this 3rd time staying. However, it was my first stay in the bigger Ivy Room. Both rooms are very accommodating and comfortable. I am thankful for these hosts. We have become of good aquaintence. I would always recommend staying at Bella Vista!
We had a wonderful, private and relaxing stay. The suites were beautifully appointed, incredibly comfortable and wonderfully private. We were able to arrange to check in early, and the Hosts were lovely as well. Please not that there is only coffee/tea service, but there is a microwave and small refrigerator, so you can make/reheat your own fruit and oatmeal. Anyway, Boise has so much great food and fun that you'll be out and about anyway! 5 stars for this lovely place!
This place is great! The room was very clean and cozy. The small kitchen was great for snacks and morning coffee. The restroom was pretty roomy with a walk in shower. However, the shower and sink water in the bathroom smelled very sulfury which was a bummer. The bed was huge and luxurious and we definitely enjoyed the netflix and hulu situation. The fireplace was a really nice touch and allowed for a warm and cozy evening. The hot tub room was good with LED lights in the tub and jets to relax you. It was kind of off putting that there was no shade or curtain over the glass door to the hot tub room but it wasn't a big deal. Overall this place is a hidden gem in Boise! Marylee was very friendly and explained everything we needed to know for our stay. The comfort, price, and quality were great and I will definitely be staying here again!
What a great place. Quaint, cozy and impeccably decorated. Marjories Library has its own private hot tub which is impossible to find in Boise. This made the birthday celebration one of the best ever. One caveat, they don't serve breakfast, but many great eateries nearby.
We enjoyed a fabulous weekend away at Boise Hillside Suites. We rented Marjories Library. The room is just as nice as it looks in the pictures. There were many touches that make it feel like home, not just a hotel suite. It was wonderfully cozy while still maintaining the feel of a hotel getaway. We had a wonderful welcome from Marylee!! I can't wait to go back again.
John's Study: Very clean and cozy room. Only a few minutes drive to downtown. We stayed in the winter which was perfect for us ad we went to an early dinner downtown and came back to room to shower and get into the very comfy bed to watch Netflix. May sound boring to some; was exactly what we wanted to do. Perfect for us. Quiet and relaxing.
My wife and I moved away from Boise in 2008 and had not been back for some time. We spent the night at the Inn on our way to Arizona traveling with friends. Not only is Boise a great place to show friends the Boise Hillside Suites is just like being home again. We really felt like we were home again and Keith and Marylee made us feel like we were welcome guests. If you have not been to Boise or Boise Hillside Suites you are in for a treat!
had a week long stay and was better than expected. Had seminar and rooms were booked,, so i found this gem, and way better than normal hotel stay. would recommend it for bus. or personal stay..
Bob and Belva have provided an ideal place for us to rest. A comfortable, clean surrounding with good quality of coffee, water and healthy snacks so we can unwind, replenish, and most of all is to have a good night sleep to continue our journey. Both your warmness and thoughtful care to all are admired and appreciated LiLing : ))
Thank you for an wonderful experience during our three nights at Bella Vista ID. We enjoyed the comforts of home with a beautiful view and great breakfasts. Bob and Belva were gracious and responsive, yet respected our privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nancy Edwards and Greg Lee
My husband and I enjoyed our two night stay at Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast. We ate our breakfasts on the front patio with a beautiful view of the lush surroundings and distant mountains. Bob and Belva were gracious hosts, accommodating our vegan diets. The living area was spacious with a TV and complementary bottled water, beer and wine from a local vineyard. We visited the vineyard on Sunday afternoon, enjoying a Blues concert and wine tasting.
This is the second time my sweetie and I stayed at Boise Hillside Suites (in John's Study) and it was even better than the first time. The only problem last time was a slightly low powered shower head. That has been changed and I can find NOTHING about which to complain. It's beyond clean and bright, it's comfy. The bed is amazing, the living room comfy, the deck perfect for early morning coffee (or a late night drink). It's really just perfect for a romantic getaway, or just a quiet place to stay. The owners are enormously pleasant and the setting is lovely...stay here. You will not regret it.
Very quiet and away from it all place to stop. Consistently clean (every day) with refreshed water, tea and linens to our room. Great value - although the "mountain view" is a bit obstructed by trees. I would definitely stay here again. - Dining score doesn't really apply since there is no on site dining.
Keith and Marylee have a wonderful getaway just off Hill Road north of Boise. The room and property was excellent and they are attentive to needs - we had some bubbly in the fridge and upon our return, two champagne flutes magically appeared. No breakfast, but we knew that beforehand. Thanks... we'll be back!
Bella Vista could not have been more relaxing and wonderful. They had a fridge stocked with fun drinks for us and a fully functional kitchenette. A super comfy bed, spacious rooms, a relaxing TV area, and a gorgeous, luxurious bathroom made this a fun and relaxing weekend! Bob and Belva were awesome hosts and wonderful people! I would highly recommend a stay here to anyone who asks. Sam
We love to stay at Boise Hillside Suites. We've stayed several times and will return every time we visit Boise. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and welcoming. I gave "Onsite Dining" an outstanding review although meals are not served. I wish there was a N/A option. While there isn't food, there is a Keurig coffeemaker with coffee, microwave, refrigerator, and fresh bottled water, and plates and utensils. We prefer to be on our own to eat out or fix a light meal on our own. We feel like Boise Hillside Suites is our home away from home. Keith and Marylee are wonderful hosts.
This was my second stay here. I do enjoy the remoteness, but also the easy distance to everything. I really needed the peace and quiet to get work done and knew from my previous stay that this is what I would get. As before, the breakfasts were good. I do plan to go back next year
This place was the bomb. We called at the last minute, literally. They accommodated us to the max. The rooms have a separate entrance and everything is perfect and clean. The decorating is impeccable. The view is amazing as the sun rises. The keepers were so kind and attentive. We will definitely be coming back.
This was our 10 year anniversary. We didn't want to stray to far from our boys, so we decided to stay somewhere in town. Boise Hillside Suites were perfect. We were close to home but seemed as if we thousands of miles away. Thank you
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Boise Hillside and Suites. The rooms were very nice, clean, accommodating and perfect for a nice romantic get-a-way. We stayed in the hot tub suite and having our own private hot tub to relax in was great! Pro's- private, fireplace, hot tub, free Hulu/Netflix, comfortable, friendly staff, great value! Con's- queen size bed, small walk in shower, 2 person limit (not an issue for us as it was just the two of us, but wanted others to know). Felt like we found a hidden gem and will definitely revisit again someday!
A great hideaway in the Boise foothills. Minutes from downtown, nice view of the west city skyline. My fiancée and I enjoyed a couples massage by a very accomplished masseuse named Hailey. The room was very well appointed and clean. Bed was comfortable and overall quiet ad peaceful. Would stay again for a romantic getaway just miles from my front door. Wish they had a breakfast with the bed however. :-)
I stayed in Marjorie’s Library and it is a very comfortable nice suite. My only frustration was that I rented a room with a stove top, so I was fairly disappointed when there were no pots or pans to cook with. The bed was very comfortable. The shower was very tiny which is fine, but I am a little obese so it was not very relaxing to take a hot shower at the end of the day. Overall the place is very nice and private.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for an early Valentine's "staycation" over the weekend. We booked "Marjorie's Library" for the night and I was pretty excited to have a private hot tub! The suite is extra large, with more than enough room for the two of us. The bed was a little firm, but still comfortable (I loved the bedspread!) and the kitchenette was extremely helpful. It was awesome to have a microwave, mini fridge, full size sink, filtered water, coffee maker, and all the kitchen utensils you could think of! The television was the perfect size, but I was disappointed not to see HBO as an option, even though it's advertised on the website. (We have all the other streaming options at home, so we were both looking forward to using HBO... Bummer.) I was expecting the hot tub to be in the room, but realized I misread the website. It was in a private room, but it was a little off-putting to have to go outside to get to it. They do supply robes, which was a nice touch. Maybe it was just me, but the chlorine levels seemed too high. After 20 or 30 minutes, my eyes and nose were burning - which hung around all night. The other downside to the hot tub was the glass see-through doors. I'm sure they're nice in the summer/daytime, but they ended up leaving us spooked because it was dark outside. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast, or lack thereof. Boise Hillside Suites is advertised as a Bed & Breakfast, but that is no longer the case. There were wonderful reviews of the breakfast (conveniently served in baskets) on Yelp, but when I booked the room I had to check a box acknowledging that they no longer serve breakfast. Major bummer! I asked Marylee about it, and she said the city told them they didn't have the right permits to serve food. I wish I could unmark this hotel as a Bed & Breakfast -- because it's not! Overall, it was a nice stay. Not sure I'd spend the money to stay there again myself, but I would recommend it to the right person.
