    Fine for What I Needed

    This hotel was quite adequate for what I needed...a place to sleep for the night and shower in the morning before continuing on a long driving trip. While it certainly wasn’t the nicest hotel at which I’ve stayed, it was fine for me for that night. It was handy to the freeway and also close to a friend with whom I was having dinner.

    Very nice stay

    Complimentary cookies and coffee/hot chocolate, very nice breakfast the next day, friendly staff that directed us to an inexpensive and fun place to eat dinner. Our room was clean and had an arcadia door that opened directly outside to where our car was parked. We’ll be staying there again.

    needs renovating

    Found a tick in the bathtub and the toilet leaked, I asked to get comped but no was the answer

    Very Satisfied!

    We had a great time at this hotel. The staff was super helpful and friendly. I was traveling alone with two toddlers, and they made every effort to accomadate my needs. Including eary check in and late check out to work around nap time! This hotel is up against the greenbelt trail which my kids enjoyed walking along and stopping along the river. It was close to downtown and convienient for getting onto I-84. They had the BEST free breakfast I think I’ve ever gotten, free cookies, cappaccinos, and popcorn all day. Great indoor pool, spa and workout room! I was very impressed with the quality of this hotel and its rates where the best!

    Bring some food to take to one of the many wonderful parks. Boise Zoo, Science Works Museum, Old Boise Penetentiary, a walk downtown to eat in an outdoor cafe, finding interesting leaves on the greenbelt.. all wonderfully fun for my two toddlers!

    Quick trip.

    Some friends and i took a quick trip to Boise to see a concert. Continental breakfast was great, so we could get out on the road. This hotel met all of our needs.

    Clean and cheap

    Hotel was clean and cheap. Staff was nice.

    They do mean Riverside!

    This Shilo Inn was clean and serviceable, and they aren’t kidding about the "Riverside" part of their name -- the hotel backs up to a public greenspace on the banks of the river. There’s a biking/walking path, trees and benches at a comfortable distance from one’s room, but providing a nice view -- ask for a river-facing room. Everyone was very friendly, and the price was right.

    Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay

    Definitely take advantage of the breakfast -- it’s more than just the weak continental breakfast you get at other places. They have those cool wafflemakers with fresh batter, and pre-packaged microwave omelettes, if you can deal with those. Decent coffee and plenty of baked stuff too. A good deal!

    Good price. Conveniently located.

    Service was exceptional. Very clean for an older hotel.

    nice stay, GREAT price!

    Day manager was very helpful and nice. Decent breakfasts. Pool was great (we had it to ourselves). Overall nice stay.

    Great place on the river

    Shilo Riverside was a very enjoyable hotel. We had a great balcony overlooking the Boise river, and green belt. The staff were very good and helpful. Breakfast was good.

    Travelers tip on dining

    Joe’s Crab Shack is a block away

    Good hotel for the monies

    Weak, weak, coffee.

    Nice hotel, nice staff

    The Shilo is a pleasant hotel with very nice rooms and it is right on the riverwalk. it has a wonderful breakfast room and the staff members were friendly and helpful. I really felt at home in the Shilo.

    Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay

    Check out the riverwalk - you’ll like it.

    Would go back

    Hotel was easy to access, room was comfortable and staff was friendly.

    Nice place to stay

    Older motel on the green belt and Boise River. Nice place to stay. Great service

    Great Service!!

    This is a great and inexpensive place to stay. The service cannot be beat, polite and prompt!! My kids LOVE the pool and the snacks in the lobby. The continental breakfast offers a good variety and over all this is just a nice place. It is an older hotel but the beds and rooms are clean and comfortable. We will be back for sure!

    Nice view on river side of motel

    We had an ant problem in our first room. Got switched to a new one with a nice view of the river on the other side of the building. Be sure to ask for rooms on that side! Nice people. Great cookies!

    adequate, money saver

    Nice river walk in the back of the hotel. Adequate lodging.

    Travelers tip on saving a few bucks


    Would definitely stay there again, very nice!

    Our stay was wonderful! Very clean, very friendly staff, wonderful breakfast, comfortable, quiet, very refreshing.

    Travelers tip on local attractions

    It was close to all things going on in the city of Boise. Not out of the way from anything.

    One of my favorites in Bosie.

    While it’s not a four star hotel, I love this place. Getting a room on the second floor and standing on the balcony looking at the greenbelt is great. A good, cheap place to stay.

    Dirty, loud, cramped.

    The room was not clean and had a sort of horror film feel to it. The air conditioning unit was so loud we couldn’t sleep and the bathroom was tiny, dingy, and in need of updating. Yuck. I would NOT stay here again. If we hadn’t been dead tired from 9 hours of driving, we would have walked out the door.

    Good location by the River Walk

    Good location by the River Walk, nice walk to downtown

    Whenever I pass through Boise I know where to stay!

    Friendly and fast service morning noon and night! Right off the freeway, very accessable

    Free transportation to airport is a very good service.

    Free transportation is very convinent. Loaction is close to river bank which is good for morning walking.

    Stay here, you’ll be happy!

    We don’t often stay in hotels as we are fulltime rver’s. This hotel was most comfortable, clean, the people were very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to the Boise area.

    Will use again

    Great staff and the breakfast was really good with lots of choices! Location is great for moving around Boise easily. The pool and hot tub were great with a view of the green belt and Boise River. I’d stay again in a heart beat!

    Travelers tip

    GO BSU! Visit the Boise State Campus and see the blue turf and hall of fame.
