Hotel was under remodel construction when we arrived. The staff was attentive and helpful and did the best they could for the circumstances. We have stayed at many Marriott properties and several times in this type of room (two rooms - loft style). This one is not very nice. Our room had a broken water heater (which they repaired) and the bathroom/kitchen floors were dirty (we did not bring this to hotels attention). i would not stay at this Residence Inn again as there is another one in Boise we will try next time.

The shuttle drivers were exceptionally accommodating and willing to take you where needed.

I'm not sure the room had been cleaned before we checked in. An hour after we checked in someone knocked on the door saying they were there to vacuum. Also there was a dirty fork in the dishwasher. I wondered if maid service had come in to make the beds thinking it was still occupied instead of thoroughly cleaning as they would after someone checks out

Slightly tired

Pros: The availability of the around town-shuttle.
Cons: The housekeeping was sub-expectation, and some interior details (lighting) need to be updated.
Location: Close to downtown and the capitol. Recommend Basque Block attractions and Category 57 IPA at 10 Barrel Brewery.
These suites are well-located near Capitol Way in Boise, and provide a good option for an extended stay. The inn provides a shuttle for getting around town, and this benefit was the highlight of my stay. Breakfast was very good, served in a nice lounge area with fireplace. Location is off of the main drag and quiet, except for weekends when the BSU students are, well, students. Not bad though. There are some areas that might be improved: tired upholstery on some furniture, 20th century light fixtures with those old fluorescent tubes, and just some attention to detail. Housekeeping needs to give the place a good dusting, and the deck hadn't been swept in a while.

The room was awesome, it was just like having your own apartment. Plenty of room for two couples. The location of the hotel is in walking distance of downtown Boise. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I have stayed her over the past 5 years and hotel has declined. Outlet in floor was ripped out of socket, bad white calking in bathroom made it seem more like a super 8. Breakfast was once a high point now it ranks less than some other local hotels. It hasn't kept up with the competition,

Very impressed with the staff from the moment of arrival until our departure. Staff at continental breakfast went above and beyond in customer service. He went out of his way to meet our needs and others around us. We were impressed!

Cute Place, but Inadequate Bedding!

4 out of 5
by from Idaho Falls, ID
Posted Nov 23, 2015
Pros: Location, room layout, large bathroom
Cons: Bedding!!!!
This was a really nice room, close to downtown, and tucked away so it felt semi-private. The room itself was very large and nice. Only complaint was that the bedding consisted of two thin white sheets and that was it. No comforter, not duvet, no blanket whatsoever, just a sheet. Even in summertime, this wouldn't be enough, let alone in November. My husband and I searched the closets for an extra blanket but there was nothing.
