Could not have been better.Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: Location on the Boise River, lighting, comfortable furnishings and bed, food, music with meals.
Cons: I would have liked a lighted make-up mirror.
Location: The proximity of the Boise River and the wonderful paved paths allowed for walking and biking as well as surfing.
We got in late in the afternoon and took advantage of the paved trail along the river to stretch our legs. The greenbelt is beautiful and it was fun watching surfers trying to stay upright in the spillway. Surfing in Idaho!. The walk was lovely. When we returned the outdoor cafe was serving food and featuring a really good jazz quintet. The music was mostly oldies, but being oldies ourselves we loved it. The food was excellent that evening and the next morning. I was expecting the usual cheesy continental breakfast, but this was an elegant breakfast buffet with anything you could think of to eat for breakfast and things you never would expect. Not only was the food great, the classical guitarist playing in the lobby was a wonderful touch. We were just passing through, but the Riverside Hotel would make a wonderful destination

Luxury hotel for low ratesPosted Aug 23, 2014
We were staying here to celebrate my 30th birthday. We drive down from Vancouver canada because we've always wanted to come down to idaho!! We were very impressed by the look of the hotel and the amenities, and we had a good stay, but we were really disappointed with the room we were assigned. We had asked to have a view and or a balcony room, and that was completely ignored and we got a nice view of the parking lot. I choose this hotel because of good reviews but was very disappointed with this room assignment because we were having a pretty big celebration. The only other complaint we had was when my fiancé asked for anther blanket, he was told he couldn't have one. We usually sleep with separate blankets. The front desk man was very rude to my Fiancé and ended up giving him some horrible version of a sheet blanket. Anyway, we did have a good stay and the sandbar is a super awesome place with great staff. Pool was great and the breakfast is to die for. Would come back for sure!!

Great placePosted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: As above
Cons: Sliding doors and screens need upgrading.
Location: Great location not only right by the river but, immediately accessible to the city built river walk which is beautiful. Close to Boise's downtown
Offered warm and delicious chocolate chip cookies at check in and it was a great start to a really nice stay. Rooms were comfortable and the river right there was very nice. Breakfast in the hotel dining spot was excellent with fresh fruit, breads and pastries home made, and omelets made to order. Outdoor dining site by the pool was also great and both were inexpensive. I highly recommend the Riverside and would make a point to stay there again.

Nice hotel. Staff very friendly. Food good.Posted Aug 18, 2014
Was initially booked in another pricier hotel and we had a trailer hooked up to our truck bringing items to our girls in college. Parking lot accomodated us and we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Family oriented, friendly, nonsmoking, spacious ,clean, and food was overall good.

Great location on the riverPosted Aug 17, 2014
We stayed in a riverfront room which was very clean and quiet. Great outdoor restaurant and large pool, excellent breakfast buffet inside, bicycle rentals in the lobby for a ride on the greenbelt along the river. This is an older building but the location is great, and a popcorn ceiling doesn't bother me at all. I'd definitely stay there again!

Hotel on the riverPosted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Great location, and very comfortable, with a very nice restaraunt
Cons: check in to non-smoking room if verified as a clean non-smoking room
Location: Walk/ride bikes along the river pathway, restaurant on the property, downtown minutes away, and the mountain 30 minutes by car.
A very comfortable hotel with many amenities for the family. The Non-smoking room near the conference center was excellent. Quiet, roomy, with flat screen TV, free internet, and a great breakfast plan. The restaurant was great for dinner dining as well. The location next to the river has biking /walking trails to parallel the river and enjoy the outdoor. The pool was ample with a Jacuzzi and fountain area for the kids. Near downtown, yet easy access to the entire Boise area.

Fun place next to the river.Posted Aug 9, 2014
Overall the hotel was nice. We really liked the pool area and the breakfast was second to none when it comes to a free continental breakfast. Rooms are fine, just your basic beds, tv, fridge and table. It does have a nice big tub/shower and a sink area inside and out of the bathroom. In the end we enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
