Nice mid-century experience

5 on May 13, 2017

My husband and I are on a month long road trip and stayed in the Library Suite for three nights. Marylee was watching for us and met us outside to instruct us where to park. She let us in our room and answered all our questions regarding nice places to eat, etc. Over the next couple days, it became apparent that she really loves her property and wants her guests to do the same. The grounds were well maintained with lots of beautiful flowers. It was a rainy few days and the fireplace was the perfect touch to take the chill out of the room. I was impressed that Marylee does not skimp on the little niceties that make a place special. The bedding was wonderful. Turkish cotton towels and robes provided. The shower was our favorite - removable shower head with shampoo and body wash in wall dispenser. Marylee herself brings fresh towels and coffee each day. I wish all the places we stay on our trip could be this nice. Thanks Marylee!!!

Mini vacation

This place was just a lovely a quaint as advertised. The room and kitchen were so great and clean and easy to use. Loved having the private porch and the hot tub, made our one night in Boise feel like a mini vacation on its own.

Best B&B ever

The suites are delightful. The private hot tub quite a luxury and the fireplaces lent a wonderful ambiance. The hosts are extremely helpful. We have stayed there 3 times in the past couple of months and would not hesitate to go back.

Comfortable, Relaxing, Safe!

This is my third visit to this property and not my last! I enjoy the cozy home atmosphere and Marylee makes it her task to make everyone feel welcome from personally greeting guests upon arrival to fresh flowers in the room. I stayed in Joan's Suite the past two visits and the bed is super comfortable and the linens are yummy! After a busy visit in town with family, I like retreating to my hillside perch and curling up with a book or Netflix! There isn't onsite dining, but I enjoy the Keruig coffee maker and bring something from the co-op in town for breakfast. There IS a microwave and a mini fridge, so you're all set. As a single woman traveling, I love that the owners are onsite and close by for an added sense of security. I also like having to pause on my drive down the hill for the family of quail to pass!

Comfortable, relaxing, safe!

This is my third stay at Boise Hillside Suites. The room is the coziest and their hospitality topnotch. And this visit I had to stop twice while driving down the hill to watch the family of quail cross the road!

Close to home get away

Boise Retreat

Comfortable lodging and setting in Boise. Close driving to restaurants and popular Boise activities. Our favorite place to stay when visiting family in Boise. Note: This inn does not provide breakfast or other dining.

Very quaint! Will definitely stay again!

My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding and for one more night as a short honeymoon. We had to drive about 25 minutes from our wedding venue to get there and it was WELL WORTH IT! When we walked in, we thought it was cute, quaint, clean and very unique. We kept saying how the room was so unique, we hardly felt like we were still in the same valley on our "stay-cation/honeymoon".

Birthday stay

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!
