Not noisy motel though close to airport & freeway.

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: Quiet & clean enough to be comfortable. Congenial employee.
Cons: Put Exit # on the address with information.
Location: The back of Lowes & WalMart are nearby and made it quieter. Some food places are in front of them. It is close off of freeway. We just slept.
The print out from the email did not give the Exit # so I had to call family to locate that for me while nearing the area. It was a little confusing to get to, but not that hard. It was behind two large stores and that made it quieter. A granite topped table in the room is nice, BUT it touches along the top 18 inches of one side of the bed. You would bump the corner getting in or out. We covered the corner and the side with a small blanket we carry in the car, and placed the digital clock on top to remind my husband not to bump into the table at night. The employee was congenial & helpful when checking in. In the a.m. only about an hour after breakfast area opened, the waffle batter was empty. Someone asked about it. I did not hear the answer, but no one had waffles. The other items were just o.k.

Accommodating staff but worst rooms in Boise area.

Posted Jul 17, 2015
Arrived late evening and was ready to settled into my room and take kids swimming. The staff said I had a smoking room and single, which was not what I had booked. So they made adjustments and found me a double, I went to check it out and it was a mess! Room had not been cleaned and smelled like an ash tray. They then found me another room which smelled better but was a single. So after about an hour of going round and round moving luggage they did find me a double room that was non smoking. Couldn't swim as pool and hot tub were green with algae. Terrible experience

Just ok, beware of the dragon

Posted Jul 9, 2015
Pros: Room rate
Cons: Tame breathing dragon
Additional signage really helped to find this HoJo, as it is located behind a Lowe's Hardware and Walmart. The room was relatively clean, but gum stuck in the carpet was apparent near the door, bed and sink. Being mid week there weren't many guests but I never heard any voices in my room once the door was closed. During the night I awoke to what I thought was a dragon breathing. I couldn't tell what was making the noise. In the morning I heard it again, it was the compressor from the mini fridge. The other noises during the night was from the back up beepers from the delivery trucks at Walmart. The breakfast area was well stocked and constantly checked on.

Decent for price

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Cons: We never had our room cleaned nor did we get additional towells. Hot tub was dirty and I believe not working and the pool was not to great either.
Location: Great location within 20 minutes really for anything in Boise area
For the price I would stay here again but we were disappointed our room was not cleaned and new towells were not given. We tried to go get new towells but they referred us to a maid cart and when we finally found one the maid was out of towells as well.

reconfirm reservation

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: Beds were very comfy. With exception below, rooms were clean.
Cons: Stains from previous bath mat in the tub.
Location: Lots of pluses for shopping, eating and freeway access.
Arrived early evening to find my "non smoking room" was listed on their reservation from Expedia as "smoking". I took in my printed receipt from Expedia to show I had reserved a "non smoking" room. They were very full that evening and was able to pull of a "non-smoking" room. The clerk claimed this was not the first time this had happened with Expedia. Was never fully certain who's error it was, the hotel or Expedia. So my only advise, call the hotel directly to confirm the type of reservation you made, according to their records.
