"The riverside experience"

5
User 14/08/2019

the hotel was wonderful and relaxing with the outdoor bar and restaurant and relaxing walk by the river was excellent. All of the shuttle drivers, two men and one woman were excellent and accommodating.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your kind review. I am glad that you were able to relax and enjoy yourself during your stay. I agree, a walk along the river is a great way to wind down. The shuttle drivers will be happy to hear that you enjoyed their service as well. Please come back for another visit soon.

Due to a storm there was a small leak in my room...the evening staff was very quick about getting me another room & helping me move my stuff. IF there was a complaint it was that the bed was too soft for my comfort!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
I apologize that their was a leak in your room but what a good sport you are about being moved. I am glad that the staff was able to relocate you quickly and efficiently. Thank you for being so understanding about the situation. l hope we see you back again soon.

"Cool hotel - great staff!!"

Sherri D, Seattle, Washington 13/08/2019

My husband and I stayed here one night before a 5 day rafting trip on the Middle Fork river. We had a GREAT experience: free airport shuttle - and our driver KORRIE from guest services was awesome. She was so friendly and accommodating, even took us downtown and picked us up again after our dinner. Rooms are clean and cozy, nice bed, and they give you big, warm chocolate chip cookies when you check in. Highly recommended!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
What a great experience...rafting on the Middle Fork. I am happy that we could serve as a good start to your adventure. Please come back and see us next time you are in the area. Korrie will be here to pick you up.

"Struggles with wifi"

User 12/08/2019

I enjoy staying at the hotel, but I was very frustrated with the wifi. I was unable to stream videos on my iphone or ipad. Since I stayed at the hotel for the week, I was unable to complete the business that required my attention.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and for writing a review. I am so sorry you had trouble with the wifi. We have contacted our internet company to find out what the issues were so we can get that fixed. Thank you for letting us know. We will keep trying to improve so I hope you will come back and see us again.

"Most Relaxing Hotel in Boise"

User 09/08/2019

I just spent two relaxing days at the Riverside. Spent time at the pool and Sandbar. The rooms are great and wonderful breakfast. I want to thank Cindy McDowell for all the help she was during our stay. She is very friendly, efficient, personable and professional. She waited on our table of 6 and out by the pool. Thanks again Cindy!!!

"Newly Remodeled and Free Shuttle--What More Can You Ask For"

Sue S, Post Falls, Idaho, United States 08/08/2019

The Riverside Hotel is a great location along the green belt. The rooms have been recently remodeled making the hotel feel new again. Best of all is the free shuttle service! The shuttle drivers, including Ismet, are great, knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. I was traveling with 3 other coworkers and we were given rides to nearby restaurants and to the city center. Did I see FREE! No need to get an Uber, Lyft, or taxi ride.

"Excellent service. "

jsizzzle, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho 08/08/2019

Izzie the shuttle driver went above and beyond to make sure that my wife and I could get where we needed to go when we needed to get there. Izzie took great care of our valuables while we were checked out and waiting for our airplane. This is my second visit this year and the second time Izzie has taken care of us.

April L, Utah 08/08/2019

Great hotel here on business but would be a great place for the family. check in easy and fast. Fidel who was working the front was so professional and friendly. He gave us warm cookies!!!!!!! I would highly suggest booking here if your in Boise.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review

We come every year for a conference and often get Ismet for our shuttle driver. He is such a delight and punctual. We also love the warm cookies that are prepared fresh. Loved our updated rooms as well.

User 02/08/2019

Food was fantastic and the staff were very helpful, especially Jonathan and Emily. If you have problems walking request a room in the 700's for ease of getting to dining area and lobby. Be sure to eat the Riverside bacon while there

"TKE Reunion at the Riverside"

5
Visigoth, Albany, Oregon 31/07/2019

Our fraternity has been having reunions every year or so since the late 90's. We are a group of about 100 or so who all graduated from the University of Idaho in the 60's and 70's. We have had reunions in Coeur d'Alene, Lewiston, Moscow, Boise, Reno, Mexico, and Las Vegas. The reunion we had this year at the Riverside is without question our best ever. The facility is top notch, the service is great, and the staff is very accommodating. Lisa Becker was our sales representative. Thank you Lisa, great job! Brenna was our catering supervisor and did a fantastic job of setting up a fantastic banquet. Edwin Lara managed our banquet and we cannot overstate his hard work and professionalism. From Hailey Moon at the front desk to Suvada Stankovic in housekeeping, thank you all!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for selecting The Riverside for your reunion. I saw many of your attendees and it looked as if they were having a great time catching up with each other. This hotel really is the perfect place to host a reunion. I hope Boise will be a regular part of your reunion rotation and I hope we will see you back at The Riverside.

"Korrie was Awesome"

User 31/07/2019

Korrie from guest services was awesome! She picked us up from the airport as gave us some good ideas for places to eat and drink at. She also said the shuttle service will give free rides to and from the downtown area. I appreciate her for being so accommodating and her willingness to provide excellent customer service.

"Rick's Review"

User 30/07/2019

I have used this hotel for business travel, very large meetings and leisure as well. Jennifer Schmidt and the rest of the staff have always made me feel like the "Special" guest that everyone looks for in service. From their pool bar to their live music, their pool and food, I can't say enough about this hotel. It's great for vacations or business and I for one will continue to go every time I am in Boise!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for selecting The Riverside and thank you for writing a review to tell others about the hotel. I love to read that Jennifer and the rest of the staff make you feel special. That is certainly what we want for our guests. I am so happy to read that you will stay with us every time you are in the area. Please hurry back. We look forward to seeing you again.

"This is how it should be "

garyw322, Mammoth Lakes, California 30/07/2019

I like to wander around the West on a Harley and generally stay at Best Western because they are generally comfortable and clean. I've stayed at a lot of them, I wander around a lot. The Riverside raises the level of expectations. Beginning with the lobby and front desk if you're not impressed by the physical layout and decor, you should be. Emily at the front desk was delightful and very good at making a slightly grungy look road warrior feel very welcome. The room was fresh and clean and smartly appointed. The air con was utterly silent, had to make sure that it was on! If you're gonna come to Boise you would be wise to select the Riverside.....

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
I love the title of your review! "This is how it should be". I want every guest to feel that way. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay. I hope that you will keep wandering about and enjoying your travels. I also hope your wandering will bring you back to The Riverside again soon. Emily and the rest of the staff will be here to welcome you.

"Great Atmosphere"

annabD6530GM, Joseph, United States 25/07/2019

This Hotel is on the river, it has great bars and walking distance to Joe's Crab Shack. We stayed on a Tuesday night and there was live music in the Sandbar! Great Bartenders and Servers! I would recommend getting one of their river view rooms!

"The Sand Bar"

5
User 25/07/2019

The Riverside Hotel is on the bank of the Boise River and one of it's amenities is The Sand Bar..!! This outdoor bar and cafe is adjacent to the pool and greenbelt pathway on the bank of the river. The great variety of live music each afternoon and evening, under the umbrellas, is relaxing and a perfect end to an eventful day in the Boise area.

"Wow"

5
User 25/07/2019

Great staff - and the shuttle drivers were excellent. Great job!!!! Korrie H, Staffan, Emily, Ismet and Janathon were great. The buffet on Saturday and Sunday were excellent with lots to choice from with the chef detailing all of the items that were available.

"Nice room, but the pool area was very noisy in the evening."

Mark P, Portland, Oregon 24/07/2019

The room is clean and well-appointed. Unfortunately, the patio was just a few feet away from the corn-hole games being played by VERY LOUD people. This will not be a suitable place if you want to get to bed before 10PM.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for taking time to write a review following your stay. We always like to get feedback from our guests and we use this to improve. I will make sure the security and the managers keep a better eye on the outdoor games. We want our guests to have a good time but we also want them to be quiet enough not to disturb others. I hope you will stay with us again. If you enjoy a quiet relaxing area, please ask for a room in the river section. It is quiet and peaceful there.

"Nice Hotel, Poor Housekeeping"

2
grknyc, Brooklyn, New York 24/07/2019

The Riverside Hotel is an fun upscale hotel, but their housekeeping in my experience is somewhat lacking. The bathroom, specifically the bathtub and shower head was dirty with hair There was mold growing on the wall tiles. The room itself was clean and spacious, but the filth in the bathroom made me nauseous. Hint: do not get a room by the pool. It is very noisy late into the evening. The bed was comfortable and the workspace was very nice. Plenty of well placed outlets to charge your “toys”.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
I am so sorry the housekeeping was lacking in your room. That is certainly not the standards we have at the hotel. I have our Housekeeping Manager looking into that right now. We will keep trying to improve so I hope you will come back and let us know how we are doing.

"Wonderful stay"

User 19/07/2019

Korrie was a delightful driver, fun and helpful. The Sandbar had great food and wonderful atmosphere and music. Levi was our waiter. Ask for him, he was very attentive. Would highly recommended this hotel.

"Out door restauratn"

5
User 19/07/2019

We ate in the outdoor restaurant and had the best waitress I believe we have ever had anywhere! We stayed about 2 1/2 hours and had the best service. She keep our drinks filled and offered us some wonderful cookie/ice cream dessert, without pressure, that was so refreshing. Shout out to Cecily. She needs a raise!

"great service"

5
User 18/07/2019

Nanette at the front desk helped us resolve some confusion on the room type, specifically the view of the pool instead of the view of the river. She worked quickly to get us the room with the right view. Beth in the Riverside Grill provided us with great service, quickly attending to our requests. We stayed at this hotel/resort for the first time a week ago. We liked it so much we came back to the same property a week later.

User 18/07/2019

Korrie H. has gone above and beyond! She shuttled us to Albertson's and then actually helped us hurry through the aisles to find the 3 items we were looking for. Korrie even came in to help shuttle us on her day off. She is a trooper and so much fun with whom to visit. You have a great employee! Thank you, Korrie!!! Ruth M. Putnam A Wyoming visitor

The Riverside hotel staff is AMAZING. You ask and you shall receive. Steve and Korrie the shuttle operators were on point for their recommendations. There are tons of options for food that they can easily get you to. Thank you!

"Great Fun Location!"

Auramine, Boise, Idaho 11/07/2019

We stayed here and really enjoyed it! The service is a bit slow, but that is the only down side. The location is amazing next to the Boise River and Greenbelt. The pool is nice and while we didn't visit the local haunt, the Sandbar, it was very busy and looked fun! The included breakfast was good with an omelet station, but again the drink service was a bit slow. There is also a Joe's Crab Shack in the same parking lot. We greatly enjoyed our stay. We found the best price on BestWestern.com

User 11/07/2019

This was the BEST hotel ever!!! The staff was over run with a lot of biker veterans and our families... the hotel was extremely accommodating to the few hundred people we brought!! The staff was fantastic and took care of our every need with grace and a smile. It was heartwarming to see them all wearing our “I Support Combat Veterans “ t-shirts!!! A special kudos to Mandy for all the teasing she had to put up with from my husband about spilling coffee... (she really didn't) Jennifer was wonderful with all the planning and execution of this huge event!!!

"Well Taken Care Of"

User 11/07/2019

I spent four days at this hotel on a business trip and was extremely impressed with the friendliness of all of the staff, from check in to check out. Jennifer and Belinda were perfect hostesses, always accommodating and never failed to check on our group throughout our stay. They even delivered us fresh cookies during the middle of our work day - awesome! The outdoor terraces and pool along with the Sandbar were perfect for our gathering. Highly recommend this hotel for any sort of travel destination in Boise.

"Very nice"

5
User 09/07/2019

Very nice place to stay - large layout with large pool, large lawn area, and multiple places to eat. Check in and out very well done - Laurie GK (there are multiple Lauries there) was fantastic at check in - very pleasant and very competent. Hotel is right on the riverwalk so nice place to stroll. Biggest problem is that the room temperature control is tied to movement in the room. So, You can't cool down the room at night. No movement in the room causes the system to shut off. Can understand the deisre to cut usage but makes for uncomfortable sleeping.

"Fantastic Location, Even Better Staff"

5
User 09/07/2019

Stayed at the Riverside Hotel for a gathering of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association. Great location, superb amenities and the staff.... extraordinary staff to ensure all of us were welcome and satisfied each and every day. My trip included business with pleasure as we occupied the Aspen Room with the CVMA National Store. My two POCs for the hotel were Belinda Unger and Jennifer Schmidt. This was my 12th year traveling with the CVMA Store and must say Belinda and Jen were the absolute best. Not only were both very helpful upon our arrival by showing us around, letting us see the Aspen Room and ensuring our needs to operate the CVMA Store were met, Belinda and Jen checked on us several times each day, asking if we needed anything. Thank you so much Belinda and Jennifer. You both helped our event be successful on the business side and wonderful on the pleasure side.

We had our 2019 National club meet at this hotel. And while I didn't personally stay there. I ate there and partied there. Staff was great, food was pretty darn good. Their prices were very reasonable, didnt feel like I was being gouged by eating / drinking at the hotel like you do at a lot of them.

"This was our annual staycation."

User 27/06/2019

I think this is about my favorite place to go when we can't afford to actually travel somewhere. We have everything we need there. Great food, a nice pool, super comfy beds and it's right on the Boise River. So beautiful. The only complaint I had which wasn't really a complaint but an annoyance was the one tiny garbage can in our room. The greatest part was by far Levi who took are of us at the pool. He was so busy but made sure we never had an empty glass. And when we went to check out and there was an issue with our gift card, he made sure it got taken care of. We will definitely be back and only hope and pray Levi is still working at the poolside bar. Cheers! Robert and Brenda Gould

"Amazing Experience."

User 27/06/2019

I went with my friend and her family to Boise this past week, and had an absolutely amazing experience at the Riverside Hotel. Colton Heindel and Caleb's McCall made my experience so enjoyable, specifically. At one point, my friend lost her wallet, and Colton went out of his way to help us look for it (he helped us for almost 3 hours!). Overall, these two men were extremely gracious and generous during our stay, along with the rest of the Riverside staff. I highly recommend staying at this hotel if you ever find yourself in Boise!

"Great experience!"

User 27/06/2019

My family and I visited this hotel last week and we were so impressed by the costumer service of the men working out at the pool. Caleb McCall and Colton Heindel specifically were amazing! They treated us so well and made our stay so much better!

"Awesome waitress -Cecily at Sandbar and grill"

cookmo14, Austin, Texas 26/06/2019

Cecily was our waitress and she was fantastic. She was very attentive and greeted us right away. Cecily even asked about our dogs and gave each one of them a bowl of water. My husband came back and went there a second time after he had been there two weeks prior to that. Cecily was his waitress then and she was awesome that time too. She remembered him. The food was outstanding especially the Kobe beef brisket sandwich. Cecily recommended it as well. Cecily was an excellent waitress during our whole time at the Riverside Hotel/Sand bar and grill. It's very refreshing and wonderful to have a waitress like Cecily that was so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return again and hopefully Cecily will be our waitress again. We also really loved the setting of the grill along the Boise River.

We stay here often when visiting our daughter at BSU and we love it. Great pool, great buffet breakfast and comfy beds. Ambiance by the Sandbar grill is awesome with the live music. Green belt just steps away with the rolling river next to it. We were in a little jam last time without a rental car for a few days and they were great with the shuttle taking us to several locations. Special shout out to Ismet our driver...he's the best!! Never disappointed at The Riverside!!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
I am glad we can be your host while you are visiting your daughter. We appreciate you being our guests and we appreciate you writing a review to share with other travelers. I am glad that Ismet was able to help you with a shuttle. I agree, he is the best. I hope we see you again soon.

We had a great stay in this upgraded hotel. We had originally booked a large King room and we're pleasantly surprised at check in when we were upgraded to a suite! Room was spacious, clean and comfortable! The Sandbar had live music and we enjoyed cold beers in a great location right along the river. The pool and outside area is beautiful and we even noticed a hotel manager taking care of the hanging flower arrangements...it's the little details! The front desk staff was fabulous and the breakfast buffet and flavored water in the lobby a plus! Can't wait to go back!!

Our third trip to Boise from San Francisco and again we chose The Riverside Hotel. This expansive hotel along the banks of the Boise River is a favorite for us. Good restaurants in hotel and nearby. Overhaul of entire facility is nearly complete and the place looks brand new. Special points go to Trace on the front desk, and an incredibly charming shuttle driver, Korrie! She is a treasure.

Trip started poorly with a late arrival due to airplane trouble, but the staff at the hotel quickly checked us in. Shuttle service was great, music by the pool side bar was great. Restaurant's French dip was not great as au jus was too salty and not hot enough. Nice breakfast buffet. Clean and quiet room with quick room cleaning service.

Another fantastic stay in the books st this great hotel. Rooms are remodeled and the beds are so comfy. But wait, did I mention their bacon? The best ever. I have eaten more bacon in a week than I did last year. I was in a king jacuzzi suite and it was perfect. Being si close to the river was perfect. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room far from the bar . Love this hotel.

"The Sand Bar lunch"

User 10/06/2019

We went to The Sand Bar for lunch today. The atmosphere is great, as you're right on the river. All four of us enjoyed our food (Cobb salad, fish and chips, and two brisket sandwiches). Our server, Cecily, went above and beyond to provide excellent service. She not only ensured that we had everything we needed, but she helped us celebrate the wedding that we had family in town for. She was great, and we'll be back!

"*** A Bit of a Disappointment ***"

Bob S, Abingdon, Virginia 07/06/2019

The Riverside Hotel is relatively easy to find. Anyone new to this hotel needs to know that is it huge! Not high, bit stretched out long. Since I booked online, we were placed in a room at the other end of the complex in the renovation constriction area. We tried to get a different room, but were told that since we book online, it couldn't be changed. The door we were told to enter at the other end of the complex to get to our room was closed due to construction. The other door we did get in finally we couldn't get up the stairs (schlepping all our luggage) due to construction. It was an insanely frustrating time just to get to the room. Unfortunately, our room overlooked the parking lot and not the river (at the Riverside) again, online booker. The room was nothing special, at least not to mention here. The walk to get to the room to the front of the hotel (front desk, bar and restaurant) took about 5 minutes, and not an easy track to follow. I don't want to say this is a bad hotel, because I am sure it is not, but I just did not care for it. From a personal standpoint, I would not recommend this to other travelers.

I have never been treated so well by soo many people. I was disabled this trip. They made sure my room was close to the front door, bags brought up to my room, if I was not about to get downstairs they would help me, shuttle service was prompt and helped me to and from, and overall every individual at the facility made a complete team! What a great trip! We will always come back. Thank you Isnmeit, Nancy, Casey, And Korrie!

A colleague was staying here and we met up at the bar/restaurant for happy hour before I left town. I was not a hotel guest, but was treated like one and I will look forward to a trip to Boise to stay here. My afternoon was topped off by catching the hotel shuttle to the airport - many thanks to Korrie!

Spotty to no WIFI, endless corridors, under construction, terrible restaurant food, the worst shower system ever in any hotel. This place is a maze of hallways and construction. Even the front desk could not explain how to get from my room to the lobby.

User 27/05/2019

We have just concluded a stay at the Riverside Hotel for a conference of about 170 people. The hotel met our every need and our every expectation. The complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport was an added bonus, and our shuttle drivers, Ismet and Jonathan, also took our group back and forth to downtown on a moment's notice. Kudos to them. When we checked in, Alicia helped get us situated promptly. In the restaurant, Beth provided superior and personal service that made us want to come back.

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your review. Convention business is important to us and I am glad we were able to help make your meeting a success.

Came for a long weekend and a wedding. We had a riverfront room that was very comfortable (great bed!). The facility is wonderful with live music all day. The breakfast buffet was the best I've had at any hotel and our server Annie Muller made it even more fun and easy. Stay here if you can.

User 19/05/2019

If you have a chance to stay & eat here, do it!! It's right next to the Boise River, the rooms are fantastic and the (free!!!) breakfast, especially on weekends, is extensive, delicious and elegant. Our server, Annie Muller, was friendly and meticulously attended to our every need. They've been doing extensive renovations, so there is still a bit of construction going on around the sprawling hotel grounds. Their pet-friendly rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. One suggestion for the dining area: the curtains covering the west facing windows cannot be raised (we learned from the dining area staff, since we were hoping for some early morning light while having breakfast). This would be a wonderful improvement and would add beauty to the experience.

The hotel has been there quite a few years. It is in a very central location and easy to get on and off the freeway. They are slowly making renovations which will only make it better. There is an outdoor swimming pool with a restaurant that has live music in the evenings to enjoy by the pool. There are bike rentals that you can ride along the scenic greenbelt just outside the hotel. I stay here twice a year for conferences and always plan an extra day just to enjoy the amenities.

From my shuttle ride from the airport, I had the sense that I would love Boise. Jonathon picked me up and shared with me information about the city, the river, and offered me a warm chocolate chip cookie!. Later, he drove us to Albertsons for a few groceries. We were there for a conference, my roommate and I were board members. The hotel sent a basket of goodies to our room to show their appreciation for choosing Riverside as our destination. BTW, the free breakfast is the best, with an omelette station!

KinesioGal, Coquitlam, BC 01/05/2019

I recently attended a conference and the shuttle drivers were constantly shuttling people from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the downtown area. Full of good information, incredibly friendly, and caring. Three drivers took care of my friends and me on this trip. Shouting out for: Korrie, Ismet and Steve. They made getting around wonderfully easy, comfortable and safe.

Korrie was most helpful at the Riverside Hotel in Boise, Idaho. She drove the electric cart for me to retrieve my personal stuff I accidentally left in the Fitness Center. She was also helpful as she drove the shuttle to the airport for the hotel guests.

I only stayed for one night as I was attending a conference. However, I had a few minutes to walk along the river on a nice paved path. The hotel itself shows a little age, but I was in a renovated room which was very nice. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The event room the conference was in was nice as well.

User 29/04/2019

We arrived and found that our reserved room had been reserved with incorrect amenities. Hailey checked us in to the original room and, when I reported the error, she quickly found other comparable accommodations and gave us a $50.00 gift card to have our supper on the Riverside for the inconvenience. Drew was our waiter when we went to supper and was one of the most friendly waiters I've ever had and very attentive. I was so impressed with his service that his tip was the balance of the gift card after our meal, which was a pretty substantial tip. Great job, Drew! The next morning we went down for our complimentary breakfast where we were served by Rebecca. What a pleasant way to start our day! Rebecca is an excellent morning person to greet road weary travelers at breakfast. When we check out we had the pleasure of visiting with Korrie H. who, as it happens, is originally from our destination and home town. It was like old home week! I have stayed at the Riverside Hotel on many occasions as I travel to Boise at least twice a year. This has been the most pleasant stay ever!

msmindy2016, Escondido, California 26/04/2019

The Riverside Hotel is a lovely hotel near Boise. The Boise river flows along side the hotel making it feel like a nature experience even though the town is all around. There is a walking path along side the river, which I highly recommend walking along. I stayed in 2019 and I could see much construction going on (they are remodeling the rooms). The common areas look like they have already been completed and are lovely. There is a restaurant in the common area, which had many healthy and gluten free options. The food was excellent with a nice presentation and not over priced. My room looked updated with the exception of the door and the window. That didn't take away from my experience though. My room was spotless (I even checked for debris in between the mattress and box-spring). There was not a strong chemical smell when I entered my room (I am very sensitive to smells). My room was very spacious and quiet with a super comfortable mattress. The bathroom was also spacious with a giant tub and it actually had towel bars that you could hang your towels on! I often don't find this in high-end hotels, yet they want you to conserve on towel usage!

Gave us the delicious wine we had won, let us know all of the amenities & gave us a heads up to reserve a seat in their Sapphire Room for breakfast. The breakfast (complete with bottomless mimosas) was amazing. Live music too. We were also driven to & from our concert by Johnathon, he was so kind & was very helpful. Enjoyed our staycation very much & hope to stay again sometime! Thank you so much :)

Scalding hot and cold shower. Bathtub unsafe for anyone. Took 3 hrs to be moved to a smaller safer room. Maids 2x's will walk in even with do not disturb sign on the door. Maids don't understand basic english. Check bill because they tired over charging us over $100 more for 3 nights. Also make sure breakfast is included or be prepared to spend $35 or more for 2 at their breakfast that says included all over their website.

We have stayed here three times and it's always been great! Most recently, we pulled in at about 12:30 AM on our way from Southern Utah back to Washingon State. We were so tired from driving and were hoping they had a room. Not only did they have a room available, but there were also offered good cookies and also biscuits for our pup. I concur with the other reviewers, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The weekend brunch is excellent and the staff is friendly. Overall, they have done a great job updating the hotel without losing the special character and feel of the original design -1969? Check out the wood mural and chandeliers in the conference room area...

Another great stay at the Riverside. While here for a conference I was well taken care of. When wondering around I was greeted by Jonathan the guest service manager and we started talking. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave me several great recommendations. He even mentioned they have a shuttle that could get me downtown. He introduced me to his driver Izzy who was outstanding. What a character. These two helped make a wonderful stay. Before I took off I went to check on things at the desk and Chelsie made sure I was all squared away. Another great staff member. I can't wait for my next stay.

Location is along a beautiful trail by the river. Breakfast buffet was exceptional. All staff without exception was extraordinary. Steffan at front desk was always kind, Dave was amazing with assistance for meeting. Great place to bring a dog as staff is kind and friendly to humans and dogs alike.

I was recently attending a training at Riverside and Trace and Taelynn were both AMAZING, I recently returned to work from maternity leave and am still pumping they both were super helpful in finding me a private area to pump while I was at my conference. I appreciate their understanding and pushing to go above and beyond settling for me to pump in the bathroom next to my training room. Keep up the awesome work. If in the future there is a way Riverside can add a wellness room for moms who are pumping and attending day conferences there, that would be so fantastic!

This is a superior location. Very modern, up to date. Large rooms. All anyone could ask for. Yet the TV would't work until I jiggled the plug in the outlet. I had to prop something against the plug for our devices to ensure contact with the outlet. This place really needs to replace the worn out outlets! With all the positives, this is not a cheap location, they bought a $3 toilet seat that was so loose I thought I was going to slide off. It's the little things that count. The big stuff they have covered in an outstanding way. The little stuff they really suck at.

"Accommodation for Go West Summit"

Chrismacewan80, Balloch, United Kingdom 06/03/2019

I stayed here for 4 nights while in town for the Go West Summit convention. Can't fault anything at the hotel - the room was large and comfortable (with a balcony, not that I used it in the cold February weather) There were a number of events going on at the hotel during this week, but the hotel is large and spread out so these didn't seem to interfere with hotel guests. There was also a couple of corridors of rooms closed out for renovations, but these were well sign posted and didn't cause any disturbance. When I arrived there was what looked like a Jazz brunch underway, looked like a great occasion - there seems to be a lot of live music events at the hotel. My room was in the furthest block from the restaurant/reception - which isn't a problem for me mobility wise, but anyone with reduced mobility would be best to request a room in the main block. All staff were super friendly

My wife and I had a great time. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast buffet is the best I have ever had with a room at a hotel. My wife and I often go to Riverside Hotel for brunch as we live locally. The concert/dance was a great time as well.

The Riverside Hotel has been the most pleasant and accommodating experience. I have a severely disabled daughter and the amenities and convenience to everything has been great. Stayed a little over a week and the staff have been amazing and supportive and super friendly. Especially folks like Cindy, Laurie and more... For the price theRiverside has everything. Their breakfast spread is the best. It's always packed and many times I could not get out due to my child's disability there was always lots to do and events at hand. It was truly the best I've been to in so long.

Want to thank Ismet for bringing the bag, I forgot in the shuttle, to me at the Airport. He really takes his job to heart. The staff, as always, are very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to see it when fully renovated.

The Valentine's day package was less than $200 and came with 6 huge chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, a bottle of champagne, free breakfast ( an extensive buffet), and a $50 gift card to use in the restaurant or lounge. The room was beautiful, facing the river.

This was becoming our "go to" place until a recent substandard room with substandard response. We tried it again and had a fine room - except the TV was hard to figure out. Be sure that the room you get has been updated - I'm told that the riverside rooms were prioritized.

I was there with a friend, we were actually dropping him off to the hotel. Dylan the security officer was soooo nice! He was so helpful we had a little incident with on of my friends that was staying there, but Dylan helped our group get him into his room and to me that showed that he cared and despite the situation he was going to do all he could to help us. Thank you!

We have been coming to the Riverside Hotel for of three years. The hotel has made remarkable renovations to the restaurant area, the outside bar an pool area, and also updating the rooms. The river runs right behind the hotel. Atmosphere inside and and outside is so enjoyable. We love the weekend brunch. Annie is the most amazing server, she is so sweet and attentive. The brush so amazing. At the pool , the bartender Angie is so much fun and so funny. She also works inside during the winter. We have so much fun at the hotel. We come about five times a year and would never stay somewhere else. We have a daughter at Boise State and her friends can't wait to come to the hotel and visit. The river view is awesome. We will never stay anywhere else.

We visited The Riverside Hotel in Boise Idaho for a family reception. Steffan Perez made our reservations and was super helpful and friendly. He went above and beyond to take care of us through our stay. Tae checked us in and had great CUSTOMER service. Jamie was our server and we really enjoyed her. She went out of her way to be extra sweet to our daughter throughout our stay. Jonathan Newman was our driver and was wonderful to talk to. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is such a beautiful place to stay. I highly recommend The Riverside Hotel in garden city.

We decided to return for the Tom Petty tribute band during valentines weekend and that's were Steffan was such a big help he derected me to the Sapphire room contect and we were able to get the last two tickets for the show and then he helped us with booking our room and making sure we got the best rate available .

Issy drove the airport shuttle 1/3019 and 2/1/19. Very welcoming when he picked us up @ the airport. He brought a fresh baked cookie from the hotel for each of us. He was very informative about the area and the amenities @ The Riverside Hotel. My room, with a king size bed, desk, couch to lounge, microwave, fridge, coffee pot and a soaker tub! Complimentary breakfast was excellent, several choices. Our catered lunch @ the conference was superb and the wait staff were very attentive. (Ismet was truly a highlight)

"Great Staff! Older, Tired Hotel..."

Jim S, Bozeman, United States 28/01/2019

The hotel website states that they are undergoing renovations in some areas. I'm sure that they had not gotten to our wing yet. It was almost depressing as we parked at the back end of unit six and walked the dark and worn hallway towards or river view room. I paid a little more for this room so my expectations were high but not unrealistic for what I was charged. Our room seemed clean but everything, especially the bathroom, was old and dated. The harvest gold colored tub and shower had the goofiest fixture setup we have ever seen. Neither my wife nor I could figure out how to get a steady stream of warm shower water. The staff was great and they serve an incredible breakfast buffet that includes a prepared to order omelet bar with other great food selections which does justify the room price. The service in the restaurant was exceptional as well. This was our first stay in Boise and the hotel has a great location right on the river. It's just an older property so I can only suggest that you specify that you want a newly renovated room when you make your reservation.

Every time we come to Boise, we stay at the Riverside Hotel. They hotel is very nice and clean and the rooms are very spa ious so you don't feel cramped when bringing the family. The food they serve for breakfast is so delicious, and they have great customer service, such as Ismet who was our shuttle driver from the airport. He was very friendly and we enjoyed talking to him on the short drive from the airport. He handled all of our bags and brought us all waters and cookies for the 2 Mile drive. He even drove us to our car when we arrived at the hotel, which was at the other end. Overall, when in Boise, the Riverside Hotel is the place to stay when in the Boise, Idaho area. If you want a true friendly Idahoan experience, this is your place.

Whizbang98, Idaho 16/01/2019

We stay here for business conferences and appreciate the Riverside's kind and welcoming staff. They manage an annual conference with 150+ attendees with competence and efficiency. This year there has been a heating system malfunction, but the Riverside staff have been up to the challenge. The Riverside relodged us at no extra cost and welcomed us back the next morning, working to get us into clean, functioning rooms as soon as possible. In particular, Steffan at the front desk was great about storing our luggage and finding us a fresh room. Plus he promptly rekeyed my room card when I placed it on top of my cell phone right after he warned me against doing that! We enjoy our annual stay at the Riverside and the kind efficiency and attentiveness of the staff are the reason why.

Thank you for your review and thank you so much for being understanding about our heating issues. We did try to handle the situation in the best way possible but many people would have been upset about being relocated to a different hotel. You are very kind to put us in a good light.

ELANA43, Worcester, Massachusetts 08/01/2019

Korrie at the Riverside was extremely helpful to me. She drive the shuttle and took me to the mall where I needed to go to purchase a necessary item for my business trip. She then returned promptly to pick me after I called and took me to another location to a Restaurant, offered suggestions as what to do and when it was time for me to return to the hotel once again responded quickly to my call to the hotel. She was friendly, reliable and even turned on the seat warmer to help me as my back was hurting. The hotel is old but is now being renovated. I was given a room far from the lobby but upon request was able to move to a better location nearer the lobby. The breakfast included in the price was very generous offering omelettes made to order and fresh baked goods as well as a full buffet. I had no car so REALLY aporeciated the shuttle service and Korrie's helpfulness.it really added to my stay.

The Riverside Hotel is a jewel among hotels in Boise. It's location on the Boise River offers lots of opportunities for walks and bike rides. The offering of live music in one or two places every evening is utter delightful. The rooms are being refurbished with tasteful and modern design. The staff is outstanding. Lastly, the price doesn't break the bank like some other hotels in Boise.

"Wonderful place for company Christmas party!"

User 20/12/2018

We had our company Christmas party in one of their many meeting rooms on a busy Saturday night. It was festively decorated. Our bartender, Max from San Diego was a great addition to our lively group. He had a great sense of humor and felt like part of our group! The room was great, the server was great, but let's talk about the Food. We are a Food and Beverage related business. Therefore, eating out , and being in restaurants is a key part of our daily routine. There were many options for food. We selected a buffet style (with a lot of great choices), to accommodate different tastes. Let's face it, we've all eaten at a buffet. Often times it is sustenance over quality. There was so much activity in the hotel, indicating we were probably one of many important parties going on at the same time. Not in this case. Quite the opposite. One entree was Beef. The buffet was colorful, festive and beautifully presented. My favorite was the beautifully sliced Sirloin. It was still pink and seriously tender (no knife required). The sauce was incredibly flavorful and truly was a nice enhancement (not this gravy poured over the whole pan to create some moisture). Everything was fresh, beautifully presented, and those mashed potatoes! No one would fault a hotel in the height of their season to purchase pre made desserts from a food distributor. They are fine. What a wonderful surprise when tasting the Carrot Cake. After the first bite, it was obvious that this was homemade. Confirmed by the addition of fresh pineapple. Yum! Lastly, I will say thank you for the detail in your presentation, servers and the great food. It did not go unnoticed. The food quality and experience felt as if we were the only party in the building. Kudos to the Riverside Hotel. Each time I go, something else is being upgraded. It's nice to see the investment in such a beautiful icon in our city. #nodulltastingconferencecenterfoodservedhere

We joined some business associates for a great Christmas party held at this hotel. I wasn't thrilled about the location initially since this is such a dated location but I was pleasantly surprised by the upkeep of this place. The rooms were clean and had updated furnishings. We had a nice dinner in a private dinning area for our group. The food was good and the service was outstanding. We all reserved rooms for an overnight stay and the Saturday brunch the next morning was absolutely fantastic. They had so many wonderful options and everything we tried was good. Annie took great care of us at breakfast and because of our experience I would definitely stay here again.

nigaude1, Salem, Oregon, USA 07/12/2018

We were taken care of very nicely at this site. The staff is friendly and went out of their way to get my friend to Urgent Care when she fell while walking along the river near the hotel (not on site). The rooms were great and the conference rooms and staff were good, too. The conference food was fine. They could use additional help in their cafe or a revamp. We arrived after lunch and asked where to go for a light lunch. We were directed to their own cafe. We ordered salads that came after more than an hour and then were the size of side salads - some without dressing. It was bizarre. Breakfast was a buffet that had a large number of choices. They have a bar and live music in the evenings.

Being a local Boise resident, I always enjoy coming to The Riverside Hotel, for it's great service, live music, and the friends I have made among its staff. So, I would like to give a recognition to Korrie H. from guest services, Cindy, Nancy, and Angie from Bar 365/The Sapphire Room, Emilee from management, and McKayla, Laurie, and Jonathan from the front desk staff. Wonderful, very personable and professional services from everyone.

Jonathan was great. Picked me up from the airport promptly after I called. Gave me the rundown on the city and some cool spots to check out. Was well informed on the hotel and answered all my questions. It's was a great introduction to my stay here at The Riverside Hotel.

As usual, the Riverside is excellent and consistent in all categories. The location is excellent and I really enjoy the grounds, restaurant and bar. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. I stay here on all of my Boise trips. I am made to feel welcome and appreciated as a repeat customer. I have recommended all others in our company stay there when visiting Boise and they do.

Currently loving my trip here in Boise thanks to the hospitable and diligent services provided by the warm and welcoming Riverside hotel. And more specifically Ismet, a kind and sparkling conversationalist. Always making sure that my needs were not just met, but excelled in any way he could. 5 out of 5 stars will come again.

We called in the morning to book a room and confirmed they allowed dogs. When we got there the lady checking us in said we could not have that room because the did not allow dogs on the second floor. She put us in another room clear in the back by construction with 2 beds, we had booked a King and they were not busy. We walked back up to get a King room and guess what, a dog was barking at us from the second floor. She still refused to give us the room we booked and gave us another very close to the lobby. The room smelled like cat pee and the screen door to the outside was bent. Very disappointing and never again. The restaurant for breakfast was the only nice thing, they sat us in the bar area so we could dine with our dogs and were very friendly.

We stay at The Riverside Hotel a couple of times every year. We always try to do something special every time we visit this great city. Whether it's a fancy dinner date, a night watching the Steelheads play or a comedy show. Ismet the shuttle driver is always a highlight of our stay. He is always polite, courteous and gets us to and from our destinations in a safe and timely manner. He is also very quick to ask how our stay going and eager to help if needed. Thank you Riverside and especially Ismet for another wonderful stay in Boise!

I really enjoyed staying at The Riverside Hotel. The hotel is located right on the Boise River and close to downtown Boise! As a Best Western rewards member, my room was upgraded to a nice suite by the river!. The hotel staff also went out it's way to make sure I had a great stay. A great continental breakfast that was also included with the room. I will definitely be back to stay here again!

Korrie was great! I had just finished my 3 hour testing for the military so, you can imagine I was a little on edge and anxious to know how I did. Then, Korrie shows up in the Riverside shuttle and made me feel really at ease! It was great to unwind and loosen up with a friendly chat. 5 Stars for sure!!

LiisaAria, Concord,California 05/11/2018

My son and his bride planned a destination Boise wedding for October, and selected The Riverside Hotel as the hotel for not only the bridal party and family, but to set up blocks of rooms available to guests. Best choice ever! From working with the amazing Cami Gast, catering manager, to check-out, the entire process was wonderful! Cami was ever patient and helpful throughout, and each employee of the hotel did a fabulous job in each respective area as the week of the wedding arrived. The Riverside hosts music nightly in the comfortable lounge, has landscaping and overflowing flower pots and boxes all over the property, and is constantly updating and improving some aspect of the property. The buffet breakfast is unrivaled, and service during the meal each day was always cheerful and efficient. It's location directly along the Greenbelt guarantees easy access to a bit of exercise (they rent bikes out to guests!), in addition to a beautiful, peaceful view. Do I sound like a loyal fan? I am! We enjoyed the loveliest stay during this special event, for 5 glorious days. Our only regret is that we had to leave!

"Here's my honest assessment of the Hotel's strengths and weaknesses:"

4
Bryan H, Portland, Oregon 31/10/2018

Let's start out with the hotel's strengths: Great check-in at around 11:00 pm at night. Humorous and warm check-in guy. (One of the warmest people I encountered in Boise); as another reviewer noted, great location to the greenbelt just outside the hotel; heated and clean outdoor pool even in October; quiet room (I asked for one and got one); airport shuttle that worked like a charm both ways. The same service makes on request trips downtown; fairly good banquet food and facilities; wifi that mostly worked quite well. What won't excite some people: it's a sprawling huge hotel, and my room was quite a hike to the front desk and breakfast area; speaking of breakfast, the whole check-in and seating at breakfast may be necessary because of the crowds, but I felt that it was a bit too preoccupied with catching the one in 1000 guests who actually weren't staying there and who decided to crash the buffet. For every person you catch, you probably put off 100 others with the process. I stood endlessly in line as the hostess tried to resolve a discrepancy between some guests and what the computer said. Why not seat the people, and come back to them if there was a problem? Why make us stand there and witness a rather petty dispute?; as another reviewer wrote, the decor isn't the most amazing thing. There are elements I liked, but mostly I just told myself I was in Idaho, and the ambiance wasn't what I was used to. Would I stay there again? If I was going with an able-bodied person who didn't have memory issues. (Otherwise, that person would constantly be lost in the twists and turns of the hotel.)

I attended the Idaho Early Years conference and was impressed by the beautiful building , great location and the very friendly staff. The front desk staff were welcoming and helpful in many ways, including deciding where to go to eat. The wait staff were all quick to offer service with a smile.

We booked a room for our 30th anniversary. Taelynn worked her magic to make our stay even better! We checked in and Steffan made it so pleasant and easy; he knew a lot about the hotel and the local area. I am sure without these two it would have been just another night in a hotel. Also the entertainment in the Sapphire Room was amazing. Big nod to Travis at the bar! Can't forget the breakfast brunch - don't miss it!

Thanks to Steve, I was able to have everything completed on time!

Got an outside/pool side bar that was great. They have entertainment nightly.Didn't care for the inside restaurant. Service was slow and food awful.

_tomnguyen001, Austin, Texas 28/09/2018

We stayed at the facility for three nights. The hotel is quite dated and dark. It is really big and walking to and from the lobby to the room is like walking through a maze. The last day at the hotel, the housekeeping staff knocked on the door @ around 8:00 AM!!! She came back later when we were in the room and she only picked up the towels and nothing else! My wife had to ask her to replenish our shampoo. She then left the room without picking up the trash nor making up our bed. I had to ask her to make up the bed and she came back very reluctantly. She then left again without picking up the cups and my wife again had to walk out and handed her the trash cup. She did not pick up the trash bag near the working desk and I finally just gave up rather than walking out to ask her to do that again... This is not a good display of cleanliness and staff behavior. The good thing about the hotel is that they have a very nice breakfast arrangement and the staff there is very polite. Otherwise, I would have given a one star

The hotel was very nice. Weather good. Tours good. The only disappointment was the food. The only item we enjoyed was the meatloaf dinner. One night we waited for a beet salad and a burger for 45 minutes and neither one was worth the wait. The burger was overdone and dry. The beet salad was slathered in dressing so I could hardly find the beets. Everyone else in our group was through eating before ours arrived. We had 2 business meeting breakfast where scrambled eggs and bacon were provided but no toast or pastries on either morning. Wish we'd eaten out. There is a Joe's Crab Shack right next door.

I recently booked a 2 day conference with the Riverside. Belinda was wonderful to work with in getting everything scheduled and invoiced. Shortly after I arrived to set up for the day, I learned that one of my participants was deathly allergic to onions, that I would need an additional table, and that oh, by the way... we will also need help setting up the AV system. NOTHING phased him. He met with our participant to go over her specific needs and made sure she had a special meal prepared just for her. The table and AV system were set up in the blink of an eye and we started on time effortlessly. Good help is hard to find, let alone friendly, customer focused and professional people like Dave. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

I booked a room, at the Riverside Hotel,sight unseen, based on amenities and reviews. Every experience I had with this hotel was excellent, from the polite and helpful service of staff to drinks by the pool. My favorite experience of my trip to Idaho was the day my husband and I swam in the pool, had drinks and dinner, at the poolside bar and literally walked out the gate of the hotel to have a leisurely stroll along the greenbelt. I couldn't have planned a more relaxing stay. Big shout out to Jason, our awesome adorable bartender from Milo, ME. Sharing some laughs with him helped tp ease our home sickness. Loved the salt water treated pool, the coffee and cucumber water station and my fresh made breakfast omelet. Thank you to all the staff, especially the charming woman, at the front desk, who spoke with me for a long time about the beautiful features of the greenbelt.

Kerri, also, was very friendly and ensured we made our dinner reservations on time and picked us up again promptly after calling. Both ladies expressed professionalism and friendliness.

"Johnathan in Guest Services is amazing!"

5
Susan_in_Sonoma, Santa Rosa, California 14/09/2018

I'm giving a 5-star rating because of Johnathan with Guest Services, who turned around what was becoming a rather disappointing experience at the Riverside Hotel. (Please know that in terms of location, value, and room amenities, this is a good product they provide to guests--no complaints there.) My frustration began before I took off from SFO, as the airport shuttle bus had somehow managed to lose my carry-on suitcase (containing all my work clothes for the conference I was attending). It turns out the driver had taken my suitcase out at the wrong terminal drop-off and had failed to load it back onto the bus. So when it came time for my drop-off, my suitcase was nowhere in sight. (And the driver was clearly having a bad day as she lost another passenger's baggage during the same ride). I contacted the shuttle bus office and they were quick to locate the bag--unfortunately, they wouldn't be able to get it on my flight. So they advised that they would overnight it to the Riverside. I boarded my flight and got to Boise without incident. Upon check-in at the Riverside, I let the front attendant know that I had a lost bag, but was getting it shipped overnight to me--and to please let me know when it arrived no matter what time it was. The next day I checked in again with the front desk to see if they had received the bag--no dice. Again I let them know that they could call me at any time should they receive it--it contained all my clothes for the conference. The whole day goes by with no phone calls. The next morning (day that I checked out), I checked in again with the front desk re: the bag. They go and check again--and they had in fact received it the day prior. No explanation for not contacting me--in fact, one of the attendants just says 'Oh yeah, I saw it in the storage room all yesterday...' I don't even know what to say at this point. The bag comes back to me with a label with my name on it. I'm not sure if it had occurred to anyone to read it. So my sister and I check out of the hotel and wait on the curbside--I had originally asked for shuttle service to the airport, but one of my sessions went overtime, so I had her cancel it at the front desk. Johnathan, one of the guest services attendants, checks in on us at that point. I let him know I'm not interested in taking the shuttle, that my sister and I are just going to take a Lyft to the airport. At this point, I'm not angry, I'm just over it--I've been in the same clothes for 3 days and I'm really not in the mood to travel in a cramped shuttle. Johnathan checked in with us a few minutes later and cheerfully lets me know that he's happy to give us a private ride to the airport--no need to take a Lyft. The guy is so on-point, that I figure hey why not...I'll just keep an eye on my bag, lol. As we drive I let him know that I was mostly just peeved with the whole situation, but I'm incredibly grateful to just be going home. He listened and let us know that he was sorry for what had happened--he even turned it all around in telling us great things about Boise, what great things there are to do, and how he hopes we'll come back. A little context: I work in tourism, and have worked in customer service for over 10 years. I was attending a Tourism conference being hosted by the Riverside--so I was meeting with many of my industry counterparts from other destinations. I know how one moment can change the visitor experience--for the better or for the worse. Johnathan is a true professional, and I'm grateful to have met him. There are not many people who would take the time to try and turn a situation around; in fact, I'm sure most would have just let me take the Lyft and be on my way. Kudos to Johnathan!

AnnieB26, Minneapolis, Minnesota 10/09/2018

This is a 2 level hotel. If you want quiet I suggest the upper level. I booked here because I wanted one day by the pool without kids alone before my trip home. The pool was very nice, my lower level room walked right out to it. The Sandbar located at the pool had great service and the food was good. I only stayed out for about an hour though because it was over run by kids, noise and chaos which I was just not in the mood for (it's not a bad thing, I just needed to decompress a bit). The room was nice and big, the bed was comfy and the bathtub, while dated was still big and perfect for relaxing and reading a book. The Sandbar on the river provided great music and excellent food for dinner. My only complaint was the noise. I'd stay here again though. Great location and very friendly staff.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. I apologize about the noise at the pool. I noted that you stayed on a summer weekend. Some of our weekends were very crowded with families and sometimes the area does get a bit chaotic. I hope you will come back now that fall is getting here. The warm days are a perfect time to lounge with a book or relax by the pool without the activity and noise of the summer. I hope we see you again soon.

Excellent breakfast. Carri, our transportation van driver, was very accommodating. Great staff and service. Also, great pool and entertainment. We'll definitely stay at this hotel on our next visit to Boise.

I stay at a lot of Best Western hotels for business and this is definitely one of the nicest ones that I have stayed in. The property is beautiful and if you have the chance to get a balcony room I would definitely suggest that option. The view of the Boise River is beautiful and sitting on the balcony is very relaxing after a long day. If you have time to venture down the path there are several options to get some food and there is a wonderful wine bar right next door. I also met up with co-workers at the Sandbar right on the property and listened to some great music. It was a great experience for sure and I highly recommend the hotel!

He had free cookies and water and was also super friendly and good conversation. The car ride went smoothly and showed up on time when I ordered the shuttle. I enjoy my stay every time and love talking with the shuttle guys.

We had such a great experience at the Riverside and the sandbar, the music was great the service was even better! Thank you Ismet for helping escort our party via golf cart, he showed us around the hotel and we can't wait to come back again! Thank you Ismet and sandbar for a great experience!

I would like to thank one of your transportation drivers. Ismet made us feel at home when he picked us up last night. He was very professional and polite. I would not hesitate to refer him to family and friends.

I received a ride from Ismet. He was very professional and pleasant. The conversation was great! From pick up to drop off every thing was perfect. I thought I would never say I enjoyed being stuck in traffic. I was wrong the time flew by. Thank you Ismet!

IdahoJen, Boise, Idaho 29/08/2018

I am an event planner for a local company, and we just had a conference at the Riverside for about 300 women. It was a very involved event with many complicated details. Every member of the Riverside staff that I worked with or encountered not only made pulling it all off easier, but enjoyable. Somehow they have managed to build a team of some of the most pleasant people I've ever worked with. Charles and Belinda patiently walked us through planning and execution. As the inevitable issues with these events came up during the week, we were always quickly and cheerfully helped by Christina, Donovan, Kyle, Jonathan, Madi, John, Max, Korrie, Chelsy, and countless others on the banquet staff, front desk, and through out the hotel. Chef put together beautiful food for us, and from the breakfast buffet to our evening parties, every Riverside staff member was polite and helpful. The location and grounds are just beautiful, and in our ending survey, our guests all said they couldn't imagine that event taking place anywhere else. I'd say that's a win. We'll be back next year! Thanks so much to you all!

Discover279239, Portland, Oregon 28/08/2018

Last week was my first trip to Boise, from checking in with Esta who was so helpful with offering different ideas of activities to do while my son was at his sales meetings. Without exception every staff member that I interacted with was so nice and helpful. The location on the Greenbelt was so beautiful, from renting a bike to explore a little bit and going from a nice walk along the greenbelt and watching people surf on the Boise River is something that you don't see everyday, they were amazing and seemed that they were having so much fun. I'm in agreement with others that have commented on the breakfast being the best. If I'm ever back in Boise I would most diffidently stay here again.

"Great Hotel"

Mike C, Clinton, Utah 24/08/2018

We were only in town for a night to see a concert. Check in was a breeze and we were treated like royalty. The room was updated and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing. The food items were top notch quality and the employees were friendly and gave great service. We asked for a late checkout so we could enjoy the pool and courtyard. We wish we had more time to enjoy all the amenities this hotel had to offer. We will definitely be back and next time we will stay longer.

"Ismet is awesome"

User 23/08/2018

Ismet gave my friends and I a ride to the airport, and he is such a kind, empathetic gentlemen. While I was staying at the Riverside, I was sick and the chef made me oatmeal even though it was night time. They accommodated all my needs.

"Ideal location for seeing Boise"

Szhappy, Elk Grove, California 23/08/2018

We came to town with no reservations. I looked up Best Western Hotels and found this one. The description sounded really nice. We decided to swing by the place to see what it looked like before committing to stay. From the parking lot it looked okay. We decided to stay one night to check it out. We ended up staying 3 nights. We had a balcony room with the river view. Well worth it. I loved that it was along the green belt and we could take nice walks. The music at the Sandbar was good, along with the food. There was giant checkers and chess by the pool. If we come to Boise again we would definitely stay here again.

User 23/08/2018

I just returned from a seminar held at The Riverside Hotel. This Hotel bent over backwards to accommodate our needs!! They helped us with shuttles to the airport, to town and if available anywhere within reason! this was by far the best breakfast buffet that was included with your room, that I have ever had. Very kind staff, and a shout out to Joan at the front desk for her special attention. The hotel is very clean and comfortable.This is a family own business, and that is how they make you feel!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is connected to lovely parkway along the Boise River, perfect for strolling, watching paddle boarders and more. Our room was excellent; comfy beds, well appointed, and clean. Quiet air-conditioning. Good restaurants--try the Idaho brown butter trout!-- and a terrific breakfast included in the room price.

"The best customer service I've ever experienced"

5
Brock R, Nampa 14/08/2018

The Riverside shines in many aspects--its location on the gorgeous Boise River; its beautifully stylish updated fixtures, restaurants, conference areas, and outdoor gathering areas; its live, soulful music every single day... but, even more than all of these things at which it excels, The Riverside's customer service is simply unbeatable. On this particular stay, I had made a fairly large mistake in booking, which led to a last-second circus of phone calls and room-moving and problem-solving. TaeLynn at the front desk was stunningly gracious and accommodating through the entire experience. She solved my every problem with a smile and total sincerity, never once making me feel like a nuisance (even though I absolutely was). I also experienced top-notch service and work ethic from some of the hotel staff helping with our event. Donovan's can-do attitude and quick-witted problem solving made setting up our event a total breeze. A couple of his guys, Max and Kyle, were remarkably hard-working and professional, and were able to help us with several diverse projects. All three of these employees were a total pleasure to work with. I can't recommend The Riverside highly enough--their people, grounds, food, music, all of it. Do yourself a favor and book a room.. you'll be so happy you did.

The Riverside is an amazing place to stay with great accommodations, friendly staff, and tasty food. I think I could spend all weekend hanging around the sandbar and not get bored. This place is rocking! Also they have bike rentals and an amazing shuttle service. Ismet gave us multiple rides and every time he was willing to go above and beyond to help get us where we needed and back. He is hilarious with great stories. The riverside is the place to stay in Boise.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I absolutely think you should hang around the Sandbar all weekend. Why not? Oh, but wait, if you were only at the Sandbar, you probably wouldn't get to see Ismet so you might need to take a shuttle or rent a bike and let Ismet help with that. Otherwise, hang out at the Sandbar and enjoy the food, drinks and music!

"Very good overall."

invests923, Portland, Oregon 09/08/2018

Front desk staff seemingly unsmiling and seemingly bothered by our presence. Otherwise, a good place along the river to relax and enjoy music with dinner outside. Upon inquiring, Nancy, a long-time employee at the bar, was VERY helpful in naming names of nearby places. The last place she mentioned was in-house, and we stayed and were very glad that we did. Breakfast next morning was very good, with made-to-order eggs and full selection of fruits and yogurts. Overall, we would stay here again.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I am sorry that we did not live up to your expectations at the front desk. Most of our staff takes pride in their customer service but perhaps we have a few people who need a reminder about The Riverside way. Thank you for pointing that out so we can improve. I am goad that you found the other aspects of your stay to be good. I agree, Nancy is one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. She really cares about her guests and I am glad she was able to help you. I am happy to hear that you would stay again. We will continue to train the staff in hospitality and try to improve our service so please let us know how we are doing when you return.

loriann0207, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho 09/08/2018

Ismet was the hotel shuttle driver. He picked us up at the airport and treated us with the most respect and kindness! He took me to the grocery store that night and the next day drove us to the drop off to float down the river and then picked us up when we were done. He always picked us up with a smile and good conversation! He is an asset to the hotel. The restaurant service was so much better this time and the rooms clean! Housekeeping was quick each morning in cleaning our room. We stayed in a king suite with a jacuzzi tub and even though you can tell it was an older room it was still a nice room! The front desk was amazing - all the staff was professional. We always stay at the Riverside and we have seen it gone through a lot of changes through the years with different company names and management. This by far is the best team!! Keep it up!! Can't wait to see you next year!!! Please keep it under Best Western and please keep this management team and employees!! Thank you!!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your loyalty over the years. We really appreciate our return guests. I am so happy that you noticed our improvements. We have many more planned so I hope you will like what you see when you come back next year. Ismet and the rest of the staff will be here to welcome you.

TripmomLedgewood_NJ, Ledgewood, NJ 03/08/2018

I recently spent a total of three nights here: two nights one week and an additional night the following week. (Ironically, I was in the same room both times.) This hotel is in a lovely location that's convenient to major highways; I'm not from the area and had no trouble finding it. My room was very spacious, nicely decorated, and well-equipped. The breakfast buffet was excellent and consisted of a wide variety of items including made-to-order omelets. During both stays, I received very friendly and efficient service. I would certainly recommend the Riverside Hotel to those in need of quality accommodations in the Boise area..

"Fun bike rental, great customer service!"

SoundTravelerBand, Cape Canaveral, Florida 24/07/2018

Although we weren't staying overnight in Boise, we wanted to rent bikes to enjoy the Boise Greenbelt. The hotel is located directly on the trail and seems like a great place to stay. The public areas are very inviting and they host live local music almost daily. Bike rental is reasonably priced ($5/hour) & available to anyone. Bikes are standard, solid cruisers. We enjoyed a lovely ride, and when we had trouble (got a flat tire, could happen anywhere), the van driver Eric rescued us and the night manager Donovan apologized for our troubles and didn't even charge us for the rentals! They made us feel like valued guests and gave excellent customer service - all of the staff members we met were super-nice. We definitely recommend their fine hotel to anyone!

Even tossed them a blow-up beach ball so they could play in the pool. Top notch!

As stated, the staff are all entirely friendly, the rooms are clean and tidy. The shuttle driver I had, Jonathan, was more than happy to point out the sites Boise had to offer. The internet, if it's important to your trip, is fairly fast as well. The showers aren't weak, the bathrooms are especially clean, and the beds are comfortable. All in all, a lovely stay.

User 06/07/2018

I stayed here one night at the end of June 2018 while I was in town for my daughter's rugby tournament. My first impression of The Riverside Hotel wasn't bad. It appeared to be a nice enough hotel. The front desk clerk wasn't overly friendly. After driving nine hours and spending all day in the sun watching rugby, I'm sure I looked a little worse for wear. Still. I got to my room, turned up the AC and got in the shower. The bathroom looks like it was only partially updated. Fine, I'm not super picky as long as it's clean. The water temperature would not hold steady. So I had a tepid/scalding hot shower. Felt great on my sunburn. The bed and pillows were really comfy. No complaints there. My room had a nice view of the river, too, with a little balcony. The next morning, I went down for breakfast, planning on coming back to my room afterward to shower, get ready, and check out. I waited about 20 minutes to be seated, and then ate. Breakfast was pretty good and was included with my room. When I arrived back at my room, the door wouldn't unlock. Thinking maybe there was something wrong with my key, I asked a maid to see if hers would work. Nope. She advised me to go down to the front desk. I walked back to the lobby, asked for help at the front desk, then went back and waited in the hall by my door. Long story short, the lock on my door had broken. No one was able to open the door. While all this is going on, I was missing the entire reason for my trip - my daughter's rugby tournament. The guy who was helping with the door was very nice and told me to go ahead and leave while they got the door open. So, I left, without brushing my teeth, taking a shower, or changing my clothes, no sunscreen, no hat, etc. I had to go buy a bunch of stuff at Fred Meyer that I needed for the day, to replace the stuff that was currently locked in my room. I get that these things happen, but I think it was handled poorly. I believe I should've been refunded for my night's stay, or at the very least given a discount. It caused me a huge amount of hassle in both time and money and most importantly, I missed part of the entire reason for my nine hour drive trip. All the manager would offer, though, was a gift certificate for a free night's stay, which does me zero good, since I have no plans to be in Boise again any time soon.

My wife and I have travelled between Florida and Washington numerous times during the last 2 years. Although we belong to the the various hotel membership groups, we always make it a point to stay at the Riverside (which we will be doing tomorrow night) After a long car ride, it is great to relax and enjoy the lounge and bar, and have a nice dinner in the restaurant, ( ask for Lishu to be your server, she is great...., personable and efficient!) The rooms are quiet, and the free breakfast in the morning is one of the best that we have experienced in all of our traveling! Highly recommend the Riverside!

We stayed at your hotel last weekend to enjoy the pool and then see a concert at the Morrison Center. We called the desk for a taxi and was told Corrie the shuttle driver could take us over and pick us up. What a nice surprise, upon dropping us off we decided and on pickup spot. Sounded like Corrie did this with every passenger. After the concert, pickup worked perfect for us. But another group was MIA, Corrie was driving around trying to find them. She was truly concerned about us being in the shuttle and the poor group that didn't go to their pickup spot. Corrie is a gem!

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
I am glad that we were able to get you to your destination and back home to the hotel. Corrie does do a good job of taking care of the guests. I hope you enjoyed the performance and I hope you will come back to see us soon.

This hotel sits along the Boise bike path and Boise River; beautiful and serene setting. Location of hotel was convenient; near downtown, 15-20 min from airport, and close to our family that lives in Boise. Our room had a balcony overlooking the river; balcony was spacious with comfortable chairs. The hotel rents bicycles, which allowed us to take full advantage of the bike path and other recreational opportunities. Bikes were one speed cruisers and well-maintained. Tatyana at front desk greeted us warmly and gave us great info about the facility, the onsite restaurant options, and tips for navigating the sprawling property. Spent a day at the pool; family friendly and a wonderful and helpful staff. Food and drink service is available at the pool. Also, life sized chess board was a bonus; great fun. Grounds and landscaping were beautiful. Pool was great. Only complaint is the piped in music; too loud and staff at pool unable to control it. Room was spacious and clean, parking close and convenient. Also, chairs in the room were comfortable (a rare find in hotels), and the bathroom design was convenient. I will be staying here again.

I want to sing the praises of Jonathan, who drove me around Boise today. I asked Jonathan what I should see in Boise while I was here for the OR-ID United Methodist Church Annual Conference, and he gave me a great review of where to go, and what to do in Boise. I had a great time at the Boise Art Museum, as well as the ID Black History Museum and other parts of the park. Jonathan then picked me up, and the conversation continued. How fun! Bravo, Jonathan! You made this day a joy!

Sara R, Boise, Idaho 14/06/2018

This was such a great place to stay. Just a few minute car ride to downtown. They provide free shuttle service which was what we used. Very nice shuttle driver. The front desk gals were so kind. They were very accommodating. I spoke to Hailey on the phone and had certain preferences about my room. Although she didn't guarantee it, she made it happen along with TaeLynn who helped me out at check in and check out. The pool is wonderful for families. They have a grassy area with a firepit that is very cozy. The reason I didnt give 5 stars is because the rooms were a little old and not exquisitely clean. But for the price, it was worth it.

We didn't stay at the hotel but ate lunch at the Sand Bar. Haley was our server and she was a pleasure to talk to, professional, and very personable. We hope to get her as our server next time we eat there :)

I really enjoyed the service, the people, the Sand Bar Restaurant on the Boise River. I truly loved the hotel shuttle service. Both times that I used the shuttle service, I had the pleasure of being driven by Ismet. He was a wonderful, vivacious and very accommodating person. I spent 3 nights and four days. I have nothing to complain about. Everyone was very friendly, and I stayed there most of the time as I was attending a business conference. My room was nice, and there were plenty of accommodations to fit my needs. I loved eating at the two restaurants. I would recommend this Hotel for their friendliness, price, and accommodations.

My friend and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Sand Bar today. We were seated immediately and Julia our waitress was very attentive. The view of the river was terrific, and the quiet and the shade-covered patio was perfect for taking a mid-day break from work.

I have been lodging at the Riverside Hotel for the past 3 years and never had any problem. Needless to say that the price is always fair and the accommodations exceed expectations by far . Delicious breakfast is always included, giant swimming pool, spacious rooms, gym, two restaurants, and two live music venues. Front desk is always nice and friendly. Thank you Korrie#

User 31/05/2018

What a wonderful place to stay. The hospitality staff are so great! The front desk (Hailey) was so helpful and pleasant; my first shuttle driver (Korrie) was so much fun and so delightful to travel with... she went to the active downtown spots on the way to the hotel at my request to show me around a little... loved that!! Shuttle driver (Izzy - Ismal) was so great! I enjoyed visiting with him as he dropped me and a friend downtown to see the sights... so great! Our first night there we ate (late) at the restaurant in the lobby and the food was amazing... I had a chicken sandwich that may be the best ever... kudos to the chef (Josh) and to our waitress (Brittany)! I was there for a conference and the buffet wait staff was wonderful as were the people clearing dishes and glasses during classes. I was so impressed. The rooms are great! I love my room and would love to stay in this very room again. Thank you Riverside Hotel for a very pleasant and memorable experience!

The Riverside Hotel is like a vacation destination in it's own right! Conveniently situated on the Greenbelt (they have bikes to borrow) between a lovely wine bar and Joe's Crab Shack, what's not to love?! The pool area and all of the amenities such as the fitness area and the sand bar with live music are fabulous. The breakfast buffet was fancy and delicious, but the staff are truly the icing on the cake! Ismet the friendly shuttle driver was went out of his way and Haley at the Front Desk was just a pleasure to connect with. Thank you to the entire Riverside team for a an absolutely fabulous get away, I look forward to my next stay!

"Best Service Ever"

203christy3450, Anaheim, California 29/05/2018

I cannot overstate how friendly, accommodating, and yet professional the staff was at the Riverside. We had read the venue was a bit outdated and it was however: it is a beautiful throw-back to the 60s, an extra ten bucks gets you a room on the river, AND because they have a great shuttle service we ended up not having to rent a car! Did I mention it's beautiful? Not trendy beauty but slow-down and breath it in beautiful. 14 acres of riverfront property, live music and employees who made us feel welcome. Shuttle drivers Jonathan and Ishmet (sp?) were especially helpful to us as first time visitors.Thank you guys! And thanks to every employee at the Riverview.

KathyPidgeon, General Manager at The Riverside Hotel, responded to this review
The title of your review is music to my ears. I am so glad that you found the staff at The Riverside to be friendly, accommodating and professional. That is certainly what we strive to do. I get many compliments on the service of Jonathan and Ismet and I am not surprised to read that they took good care of you during your stay. Please come back to see us next time you are in the area. Ismet, Jonathan and the entire staff will be here to welcome you back.

"Beautifully Renovated Hotel and Sand Bar is Tops!"

Crystal S, Apple Valley, United States 28/05/2018

While bike riding along the Boise River, we stopped in at the Sand Bar for a couple of drinks and some lunch. Brittany waited on us and she was the BEST! She really took care of us and the drinks were superb, Ginger and Lemon Heffewisen beers and a Moscow Mule...yum! The fish and chips were great, the chips and the slaw were the BEST, a little work needed on the batter for the fish, but it still tasted great. The best part is the patio seating right along the river which is just gorgeous! The staff were all very friendly and having been to this hotel once before, I have to say it is an older hotel that has been beautifully renovated and more renovations are currently underway as well. It is very inviting and a nice quiet get-a-way place where you can relax. The Boise river runs right along the back of the hotel so you will definitely want to walk or bike along the greenbelt there. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this place!

Barbara K, Boise, Idaho 24/05/2018

The rooms are spacious, beds so comfortable with silky linens. Showers have double heads. The breakfast is free with real food! Amazing! Vegan and gluten free chooses. Fresh blackberries, rasberries, more. The pool outside is huge and the Sandlot restaurant by the river is fabulous! We love Brian the manager, he goes out of his way with a fabulous attitude. Megan made us feel at home at the pool, as well as did Harland,where we dined and spent our evenings. Jen at the Sandlot was amazing too. Stefan at the desk made us feel welcome, as did the whole staff. This is a 4 star, resort style property a mile from downtown Boise that gets my vote for Boises best!

This is my third time at Riverside, and each time I come to town now this will be my place! If you can get a forward room next to the pool it is highly recommended. There is live music every night of the week in the spring and summer Months. The Sand Bar adds allot to the outdoors feel. Where it is a gathering spot for of the local's and their families to catch a refreshment. Or some of the nice food offerings made outside the Sand Bar. The rooms are decently nice. The Suites are simply Rock N Roll! Thank you Korrie for guiding me to a fabulous room!

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years but I believe they have improved since the last time I stayed there. First of all the staff was all super friendly and helpful. They offered to shuttle us downtown which was a nice touch. They also now include a super breakfast brunch that was amazing. Will stay there again in the summer when we can enjoy the pool.

Highly recommend this hotel for all, but especially those traveling with pets. Nancy, our server in the lounge was awesome!

I checked in with my SERVICE DOG and was initially put in the farthest room back on the property. they finally moved me the next day but only about 20ft closer. I have hip issues and was struggling to walk and told that those are the pet friendly rooms. I informed the staff he is not a pet and in accordance with ADA law he has access to all the rooms in the hotel. they left me all the way at the back of the property. I contacted K9s for warriors and informed the legal staff of the issue and they will be contacting the hotel.

bettytisdell, Blackfoot, Idaho 16/05/2018

I rented a two room suite for 4 adults and 3 children. The room was beautiful and had the most wonderful jetted garden tub. There was, however, no pull out couch as listed on my reservation - I had to call for a roll away, which took quite a while to deliver. There was also only 2 coffee services in the room, despite the size. The weekend breakfast buffet was exceptional, and the service was overall very good. I will definitely return when the weather is warmer to take advantage of the lovely pool as well!

WunderBacon, Lake Oswego, Oregon 02/05/2018

We stopped here for one night at the end of a 3 week road trip. I tried to book a room more than once earlier in the day on my phone through the Best Western site and received errors. I thought we didn't have a reservation because of those error messages, but in fact we had multiple reservations. A couple of hours after checking in Korrie called our room to say she had noticed our extra reservations and was cancelling them so we wouldn't be charged for more than one room/reservation. I really appreciate the fact that she was proactive in determining there was a problem and resolving it in order to prevent a bigger issue later. The bed was very comfortable, the omelets made to order at breakfast were wonderful, and the walk along the river after a long day of driving was refreshing. We will be back next time we stay in Boise.

From the moment I walked in the staff at this convenient and comfortable hotel made me feel like family. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had a wonderful easy chair. The daily breakfast was delicious and the wait staff (Annie) was exceptional! Rent one of their bikes for a ride along the river or make plans to attend a concert in the Saphire room - awesome venue and great artists!!! Can't wait to return!

My overall experience this trip was good as my rating reflects, however, this is a tale of how one bad apple can spoil the bunch. I am a life long hospitality career professional. I do recommend this property and I want the management team to be aware of opportunities to improve. POSITIVE - I stay at this location several times a year for business. The new lobby and portico entrance look great. The rooms are currently being updated and that will be nice to see. Room service is available and the television has plenty of choices for anyone. Free wifi and comfortable work station with extra plugs for computer work in the room. Service can be off at times, but there are mostly good employees that care about guest experience. The front desk is always professional and accommodating. One of my favorite things about staying here is the breakfast buffet...especially the Riverside Bacon (basically candied). I have had Annie as my server several times and she is always attentive and fun to see. Housekeeping is friendly and efficient- always greeting you when you pass by. NEGATIVE- Beware the "cook" named Grant, whom the hotel has misguidedly chosen to hire and for some reason put in a position where he has contact with customers. They stationed him making omelettes out front for breakfast. He has terrible demeanor with guests and grunts more than he speaks. His appearance was filthy with debris all over his uniform. I heard other customers commenting about him as well. I asked a server if he was having a bad day and they said this was standard behavior for Grant and they regularly hear about his attitude. They have to deal with it on a regular basis themselves, so i felt obligated to mention this in a review for their sake. Management should drop this problem employee before he drags the Riverside team down with him. You are only as strong as your weakest link...and this guy is WEAK!

"Successful Group Event"

pam_ehrlin, Boise, Idaho 27/04/2018

Our company holds an All Sales Meeting every 3 years in the Boise area. We have our sales people from the USA and Canada come in for 1 week of meetings and it's a really busy, full packed week for all of us. We held this conference with the Riverside hotel in 2008 and came back 10 years later to do it again. We were more than pleased with the entire process from booking the event with Jennifer, working with Belinda for the meeting space and catering, Ryan with the AV company PSAV, and Chelsea and Cameron for our on site support for our meetings. Everything went on without a hitch. The hotel rooms were great, everyone loved their room!! The food was Awesome from the breaks to the lunches and the Wonderful welcome reception we had on the first night with our private bar and appetizers. Everyone on the banquet staff did a terrific job and made every participant feel welcome. the people at check in were Great, the lobby bar was fun and the bartender was really great as well. Things could not have gone better, the hotel bends over backwards to make everything perfect. We had a ton of last minute changes to both hotel rooms and our program and the ladies didn't even flinch, they just rolled with the punches and it worked out perfectly. I'd like to recommend this is the Best hotel to have meetings in the Boise area. The price is really fair for absolutely everything and you won't have a better experience then this. We will definitely be returning in a couple of years, thank you to all the great people that we encountered over the last 4 days, you made my job much easier:)

User 25/04/2018

We came from Virginia Beach to stay here in order to buy a house. Four mornings in a row we've been awakened by construction downstairs. The construction workers obviously like to bring their dogs to work with them. This is absolutely unreal. We have complained but they seem to think for making everything up. If they could just send some stuff here in the morning they might realize that we are not making it up. Strangely, the only time they're doing the work is it about five to 8 o'clock in the morning and then they're gone for the rest of the day! Here's Johnny? This will obviously be our very last stay here.

Once again, an excellent stay at the Riverside Hotel. It is now a BW property. However, do not let that fool you, the service and my room was top notch. Joan at the front desk provided me with exceptional service and made me feel really at home. This is the best place to stay in Boise. It is right on the river, extremely close to a new park. and a great place to exercise and take a long walk. Soon the Sandbar outside bar will be open. I cannot wait for the afternoon music. I am also looking forward to fishing the Boise River this summer. This is the place to stay. You will not regret it.

Ryan12066, Missoula, Montana 18/04/2018

I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. It isn't real pretty from the outside, but they have worked to update the inside. The staff is some of the nicest and well trained staff you'll find at any hotel. The staff worked hard to help out and suggest places to go and eat. I was at this hotel for three nights and four days for a conference. The wi-fi worked very well (and was free) so I could get work done while I was at the conference. The best part about this hotel was the free shuttle. The staff took groups of people at this conference to where we needed and it was a lifesaver! We appreciated all they did, every single driver was awesome!! They have a free shuttle from the airport too that was there in 10 to 15 minutes after I called. Super nice and accommodating drivers, I had three different drivers and all of them worked so hard to help you get to where you wanted to go. I stayed here in April 2018. The hotel decor is average, but the rooms are huge and everything about this hotel was very good. They had live music most days and quite a few nice surprises I don't normally see at a hotel. This place is about 5 minutes via the shuttle to downtown and there is a ton to do downtown. Despite it being an older hotel, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The riverfront trail is a great amenity and essentially right by the hotel. Thank you Riverside staff for a memorable stay!!

User 10/04/2018

I was in town for a conference. I was extremely impressed with the convenience of this hotel; everywhere else I've been doesn't meet this bar! The hotel shuttle takes away the need to call a taxi or get an uber, the hotel shuttle will pick you up from the airport which is ~10 minutes away and even take you back there. If you want to go anywhere in downtown, they can drop you off and pick you up as well which saves so much money! Specifically, Izmet was the shuttle driver I had and he was very kind, a great conversationalist and a big help! Their hotel is very clean and kept, the rooms are nicely decorated and spacious as well. Will definitely book here when I'm back in Boise!

Shantycat, Nampa, Idaho 10/04/2018

I have held 2 conferences with The Riverside Hotel within a week. The first one was last week and it was the second year that I have held this specific conference at the Riverside Hotel. I cannot say enough about Jennifer and Belinda... even though there are many events going on at the same time; they make me feel like my event is the most important. They even brought me their world famous cookies when I was running low on energy! They ensured that everything is the way I wanted it, made recommendations when I was stuck on what to do and were very flexible since I had a tendency to change my mind. The catering staff was amazing and there is not enough words to express my gratitude for their service during the conference. David ensured that the rooms were set beautifully and that the food was delivered on time. He even threw in flowers to make our tables for our reception was stunning. And the new chef was amazing – great tasting and plentiful! The catering staff went above and beyond - Cameron, Donna, Stacy, Emilee, Rochelle, Danielle, and Angel make an awesome team. I loved how they made sure that all of my attendees were welcomed, fed and treated like family at a dinner party. Thank you to all of the staff at the Riverside for helping me pull-off an awesome event for more than 300 people over 3 days! I am a success because you all made me look good! The second conference was today for about 100 people. Compared to last week, this one was a walk in the park. Jennifer and Belinda made it perfect again. Cameron, Dreemi, and Terri made sure that the food was delicious and served hot even though we were 30 minutes late into lunch. I even saw David running around and he stopped to say hello and checked on me. If you are looking for a place to have your next event, look no farther. The parking is free, the rooms are very comfortable and nice, the food is delicious, the location is right next to the river and there are many conference room sizes to fit your needs from 10 to 300+ people. Just so you know, I am already planning my conferences for 2019! Lastly, I want to also say that Jon and his PSAV team were amazing and ensured all of our audio visual needs were met. They constantly kept checking on us to ensure there were no problems throughout the day. In addition, they went above and beyond to make sure we had all the equipment we needed and ensured that we were not being charged for items we did not use.

hlperryman, Boise, Idaho 09/04/2018

I called to see if they could accommodate a group of maybe 30 ladies for a Bridal shower. They did and then went above and beyond. They gave us a private room, had flowers on the table, let us bring more flowers and cupcakes in, let us decorate, brought in a private mimosa bar for us. The buffet was great, plenty of options and everyone was shocked the mimosas were included (bottomless) and the price was so great. The bride to be was very happy and pleasantly surprised by the room, flowers, drink and food. Brittany took immaculate care of us and accommodated out every request. It was the perfect party for our Bride to Be. Thanks again Brittany!

"A beautiful weekend beside the river!"

Melody R, Boise, Idaho 08/04/2018

I have attended business events at the beautiful Riverside Hotel and always had a great experience, but had never stayed for fun & relaxation before this weekend. What a perfect place to come and stay if you're in search of a relaxing weekend where you'll be treated well, fed well and surrounded by lovely and beautiful amenities. I live on the other side of the Treasure Valley and had a friend fly into town and we decided to take advantage of the Spring Showers promotion at the Riverside and enjoy a weekend "staycation" - from the moment we arrived we knew it was a great decision. We were treated so well at check-in by Steffan, so professional, kind and knowledgeable. When we needed a few things worked out, the night manager, Donavan went to the ends of the earth to make sure we had what we needed. When we ran into him at dinner that night, he helped us again! It was clear that he also has great respect for all of the other staff at the hotel, and that everyone works together wonderfully to make sure that guests have a great experience. We had a delicious dinner at the restaurant inside the hotel and were treated like old friends by our server, Lishu. There was live music playing and the atmosphere felt very special and resort-like. After the first night, we decided we needed to stay another night. We had a gorgeous river-view room and the beds and bedding were lush and comfortable. Our room was spacious, lush and stylish. The buffet breakfast on Sunday morning was OUT OF THIS WORLD and included with our room! We enjoyed fresh crepes, prime rib, fruits of all kinds and couldn't begin to taste everything offered. It was a beautiful display and everything was fresh and delicious. It felt like over-the-top amazingness, we weren't expecting it to be so fabulous. Our breakfast server, Patti, made our day with her friendliness, kindness and helpfulness. I would highly recommend an experience at the Riverside Hotel. Whether for business or pleasure, the staff and amenities will knock your socks off. The views and surrounding areas are the best in the valley... no other hotel has so much space spanning the river and greenbelt and it really makes a difference. It feels like an in-city resort, surrounded by beautiful nature but close to everything. Words fall short when describing this very special property and hotel. Go!!! You won't regret it!

I came for Easter Sunday with my family. This year I am going to college anyways Donna was our waitress and she was really cool. My little brother really enjoyed going to the Easter egg hunt. He's slightly autistic and has a really hard time picking anything besides his favorite color. Sam and Jon helped him find yellow eggs and Terri cheered him on. Really cool and Donna even chatted with him and she's was totally nice and respectful even when she was super busy. Glad we could get one more family hurrah before college!

Thank you for joining us for Easter Brunch. I am so happy that you and your brother enjoyed the brunch and the Easter Egg Hunt. This has been one of my favorite traditions for many years. Dona is always a good waitress and a nice person. I am happy that the bunnies assistants were able to help to make the day special for your brother. That makes me smile. We are currently taking reservations for Mother's Day if you want to treat Mom.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel and the staff. My family stayed here for a funeral and we felt welcomed from the moment we walked in the door. Korrie (front desk) was very kind and accommodating as we checked in. She made sure we had everything we needed and even gave us cookies! The next morning, the front desk staff made sure we knew about the shuttle to the airport as well since some of us were traveling. The breakfast was amazing! Annie was our server and she made sure we were completely taken care of. If the buffet didn't have something we wanted, they made it for us. The live music in the lobby was also very nice. There was plenty of room for my family to gather, either in the rooms or in the spacious lobby. While this was not a fun visit for us to Boise, the hotel staff made our stay very pleasant and we felt well-taken care of.

"Easter egg hunt "

Went to the riverside for the Easter brunch. Had loads of fun! Sam, Terri, and Jon did an awesome job at hiding the eggs and making the experience awesome for my little sister. She had a lot of fun talking with Sam about dresses and fairies. And it was an all around good experience. Angel was out waiter and he was awesome. Really fast and made sure we had everything we needed.

I am so glad that you enjoyed the Easter Brunch. It is always a lot of fun for the entire family and I know the egg hunt is a favorite with the children. I am glad your sister enjoyed it. Sam, Terri, Jon and Angel always do a great job and I saw them working hard on Easter. Thanks for noticing them. I hope we see you back at The Riverside soon.

I came here for a conference and was impressed by all of the staff. We had a few hiccups with the av equipment and computers but the front desk/reception sent the IT guy to our conference room in a timely matter and fixed the problem with a smile on his face. Also, the keycards are very sensitive and my kept getting close to my cell phone and deactivating, but they were always so kind to reactivate my card. Overall I had an excellent experience and will definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again in the future.

We stayed at the Riverside Hotel during the Treefort music festival. Jon was very accommodating when setting up my reservation and Korrie was very nice when we checked in. The room was spacious and we had a great view of the river! The breakfast buffet was awesome and Annie, our server, was really nice as well. We were able to ride our bikes along the river to and from the festival which was great! We will definitely be staying here again next year!
