Unique experience in Boise

3.0 on September 13, 2014

We wanted something more than just a motel or hotel room for our first time in Boise. This place was unique and conveniently located. Our hostess was there to greet us and make our stay very comfortable. The place and clean and offered some different amenities. Our only comment that we would include to give others a heads up is that the bathroom is very small and the shower is tiny. Other than that it was a good experience. The hostess made it clear to us from the start that this is not a bed and BREAKFAST.

Fantastic Stay!

Marylee was very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was very nice, comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed and then some! We truly enjoyed celebrating our wedding anniversary here. The views from the room were fantastic and we really enjoyed sitting on the front patio. We will return, hopefully to stay in the room with the hot tub :) PS the Dining forced a review, but was not included

Looking forward to coming back.

We loved the privacy and the spa. We look forward to coming back in the winter to take advantage of the wood burning fireplace.

This is the second time we have stayed at Boise Hillside Suites. First time n Marjories Library (absolutely wonderful), second time in Johns Study (loved it). This definitely is a hidden treasure in Boise. We will stay here again next time we travel this way.

We are very happy that we found Boise Hillside Suites! It is just a short drive to downtown, but yet it is nice and secluded and quiet. The bed was wonderful and all of the little touches show that the innkeepers understand the needs of their guests. We will definitely return!

Very pleasant and quiet

Very nice and romantic place to stay!!! The value for the price you pay is excellent!!! We spent our honeymoon night there and it was perfect!!! Will definitely go back there again!

Excellent bed and breakfast

4.2 on July 27, 2014

This was a great place to stay. The main drawback I noted was related to the television; there was no live television - only pre-recorded offerings through internet television. This was frustrating when my travel companion and I wanted to catch up on the daily news. I was also surprised that the room was not refreshed or new towels provided for each night of stay. The property itself is beautiful and I would visit again.

We'll be back!

This was our 3rd stay at Boise Hillside Suites. The rooms are beautiful and SO comfortable and quiet. We automatically check for a vacancy when planning a trip and arrange our travel to fit their availability. We always feel welcome and at home, and look forward to our next visit. NOTE: I had to rate dining - and there is no dining at Hillside, but the rooms have Keurig coffee makers, microwaves and refrigerators. One room has a stove and sink. So - a quick meal is easy, coffee is always available, Owl Tree Bakery is at the bottom of the lane, and restaurants are a short drive away!
