Birthday stay

5 on October 17, 2016

I am very picky about rooms when I have to stay somewhere. This place really impressed me. The owner came out right when we arrived. She was very sweet and made sure if we needed anything to let her know. The room succeeded my expectations by far. Perfectly setup, clean and beautiful views. Far enough away from traffic but close enough to town. We will be staying here a couple times per year. We have never had such a great experience!

Beautiful setting

We LOVED our stay at Hillside Suites. We stayed in John's Study and may stay there again. (eyeing the hot tube suite.. ;-). It was an awesome stay. Be sure to check on the Starlight Mountain Theatre up in Garden City. We also enjoyed Flying Pie Pizza, they delivered.

Anniversary stay.

Our stay here in the largest room with a joining private hot tub room, was absolutely superb. And very private!! Marylee was great and very accommodating. We are planning on staying here again!

Quiet near town hideaway

4.0 on July 11, 2016

We spent 4 nights at this quiet hideaway. It met our needs beautifully. Our room was large, quite, very private, and exceptionally clean. We bought breakfast food and used the kitchen facilities to make our own morning meals. If we hadn't been so busy with Boise activities, including strolling the lovely parks along the river and an evening at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival Theatre, we'd have spent more time in the hot tub just outside our door.

Our 2nd Stay

This was our 2nd time staying at Boise Hillside Suites. I would recommend this to anyone who just wants to get away for a very relaxing evening. Great price and great room. Can't wait to get away again soon. Do yourself a favor and stay with them once you will not regret it. The Holady's

Always Tremendous

I am constantly amazed and impressed at the level of perfection achieved at BHS. My lady friend and I have stayed many times (we're in a long distance relationship and the setting is perfect for reconnecting) and not once was anything amiss. Well, that's not true. The first time the shower was a bit slow, I noted it to the owner, and it was attended to immediately. That's just the kind of place it is. Romantic, quiet, and beautifully fragrant flowers in the garden. It is a short 10-15 minute drive to and from the airport (shorter if you fly out early like I do). A favorite is the Roku instead of cable TV or movie channels. We love a series on Netflix and that we can even share a quiet 90 minutes cuddling and watching "our show" is heaven (as those in long distance relationships know). BIG PS - I am forced to review dining, but this is clearly not a "breakfast" spot. However, the in room coffee is superb and the treats we bring in (or take out from a great Vegan BBQ in the area) keep well in the fridge. :)

We really enjoyed the night stay at the Hillside Suites, having the hot tub right outside the door was really nice and we never felt that there was any worry of anyone watching us. The Marjorie room was secluded and separate from every other room which was really comforting. The Suites are close enough to downtown and several restaurants that not having an option of an eatery there was no problem. Had a great overall experience for the money. Thank you

Pleasant Place to Stay

Marylee is an outstanding hostess of this B (B only since breakfast is not included.) The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. I had a rest day there on an across-the-USA bicycle tour. It was a pleasant day in a quiet neighborhood. There is good food service within walking distance. You will not be disappointed.
