Good downtown location at a good price

Posted Jun 26, 2017
Stay at this property often when I have meetings in Downtown Boise. It is convenient to all of downtown.

Party Central Saturday Nights

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Close to restaurants
Cons: Goodwill. Better security.
Drunk on our floor kept yelling. Somebody else called down to the front desk, Nothing happened. Finally went down three floors and across alley to complain. Was told security on its way (no on site security). A couple more outbursts after that. Loud music. Slamming doors. Front desk very unapologetic next day. We stayed another night. Dead quiet. But nobody on our floor. Sunday night in Boise.

Security does walk the floors, several times, because of 3 buildings we don't always hear until someone calls us, security responds within 5 minutes. I am very sorry we did not respond faster.

Ok hotel

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Everything updated
Toilet had a dirty stain, didn't clean after our first night and we were gone for over 2 hours that it should have been done - they called and I told them we would be gone after 4 if they wanted to clean at that time - won't stay there again - they say deluxe continental breakfast and that is not accurate - I have definitely had better

Return/loyal customer--disappointed!!

Posted May 14, 2017
I've stayed at the Safari many many times! Unfortunately, after this last trip I think I'll be spending my money elsewhere. First, the woman at the front desk didn't give us any information about the hotel (check out, breakfast, room details, etc.). The room was clean, but hardly worth what I paid for. It's close to a bar in downtown, so expect it to be noisy for all hours of the night. Oh, and... your 'room with a view,' expect to be looking at a wall. The breakfast was donuts and mixed together orange juice/apple juice. Worst of all, we woke up with the worst sore necks and back because you're given a small square pillow. Honestly, I hardly ever take time to write poor reviews, but I was really disappointed this time around. Definitely planning on staying elsewhere from now on.

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. We do put 3 standard pillows on every bed along with 3 decorative pillows. The cost reflects the location of the room. Giving options for every budget.

Great Hotel for location & price

Posted May 11, 2017
It is a very "clean" hotel. Just older. Being walking distance to everything down town and the friendly staff- you could not beat the price. Not luxurious, but if you want friendly staff, clean facilities & the down town environment then you would have to pay a lot more.

Great location. College hotel.

Posted May 4, 2017
This is an older hotel. It is a safe place to sleep in the heart of the city. This is more Super 8 and Motel 6 than Hilton.

Location: There's a farmers' market across the street and many night clubs nearby.
The staff kindly greeted us. Although the room was small, it met our needs as we stayed there only overnight.
