Travelodge with an Edgy Band-aid.Posted Jul 21, 2014
Meh...scratch the surface and this really is nothing more than a snazzed up Travelodge now dog-earred. Ridiculous sink, tiny room and the Eco-toiletries (conditioner) smelled rank. Room really dark and dank. Not worth the boutique price.

FOR AGE 21 AND ABOVEPosted Jul 14, 2014
Expedia showed a minimum check in age of 18, but when my 18 year old showed up with a room that was paid for, she was not allowed to check in and was told my Expedia account would be credited ASAP. Thanks, but my daughter on her first ALONE trip had to drain her debit account for a different hotel for two nights, which left her no money for the weekend. TOTAL INCONVENIENCE!

A Real Find In Biose, IdahoPosted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Location, Room Comfort, good WiFi, Friendly Staff, Free Parking
Cons: Nothing really. It is exactly as advertised.
Location: On the western side of the downtown area, close walking distance from an area with shops, restaurants, bars and coffee houses.
We stayed at the Modern Hotel just one night while passing through Boise, but we were very pleasantly surprised with both the Modern Hotel and with Boise. The Modern Hotel is a restored and made better old Travelodge in downtown Boise. It's been brought into the 21st Century with modern amenities like flat screen TV's with premium channels, complimentary WiFi, king sized beds, large tiled showers where the bathtubs used to be, and a patio with fire pits where the small square swimming pool used to be, but the best of the late mid century look and feel has been kept. The building is late mid century 60's (now cleaned up and painted in 21st century colors). The rooms are furnished with restored (or maybe new) 60's Danish style furniture. It's all very sleek and cool, especially for a small city like Biose, Idaho. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The hotel is downtown, just a few blocks and a short walk from an urbane area with restaurants, bars and coffee houses. The has a bar that is nice in the evenings, and the hotel offers a complimentary continental breakfast in the morning.

Cool former MotelPosted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Hip vibe, staff, location.
Location: For us, being July 4, the close proximity to the park where fireworks and the pre-firework party were happening was great.
We passed through Boise on route to a rafting trip and stayed at this cool hotel. The staff is very welcoming and warm while also clearly representing the hip side of Boise. The bar and restaurant offered a captivating menu and the rooms were stylish, clean and comfortable. The showers were wonderful! I would definitely recommended the Modern to those facing a brief or extended visit to Boise.

Nice...but not the talk of the town.Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Nice bathroom fixtures and light fixtures.
Cons: Air condition the big hall upstairs. Serve some proteins for breakfast!!! Would some eggs and sausage really be that hard? I'd even pay more for it
Location: Down town location is good. A nice walk to where the action is.
Nice fixtures don't make up for the fact that this is a re-modeled Travellodge or something. PLEASE....some protein for breakfast. Had to go out and spend money on some meat to get some balance.

Great Location in BoisePosted Jun 18, 2014
Pros: The hotel staff set the bar for friendliness and courtesy.
Cons: Hot water heater and bathroom sink may need to be looked at.
Location: I went there for a wedding but I did enjoy the restaurants: Fork, Arid Club, Cottonwood Grille and Smoky Mountain Pizzeria and Grill were all great.
At first glance, the hotel did not look like the pictures online. I expected a larger place. However, the hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The court yard is beautiful at night and I can tell that it is the center piece and rightly so. I was concerned at the lack of parking spaces on occasion but I never failed to find a spot. On one morning, there was no hot water in the shower but I could access the hot water later in the day. The bathroom sink (on the last night there) drained slowly and I thought that it may over flow but it never did. Other than that, I really enjoyed the stay and I would still recommend this hotel to my friends. If I am ever back in Boise, I would not hesitate to book at this hotel again.

A quick visitPosted Jun 8, 2014
I've been to the Modern before. I like its style and easy informality. Plus, the location is great. Big Cup to your right, downtown to your left... easy walk either way. All good.
