Great time along the river
Really relaxing. There was an issue with room being ready and we were given a coupon for free drinks and a gift card to use at the hotel. Everyone was real friendly and helpful.

Not The Same
We have stayed at Riverside a couple of times a year for the last decade. It has always been comfortable, affordable, and serves a wonderful buffet breakfast (that bacon!). This trip was different. They were out of chocolate chip cookies at check in. The king bed was lumpy on one sidel and it hurt my back. The next morning I asked if I could change rooms and the front desk person said beds in the other river view rooms likely would be no better. Huh? “You mean all the beds along the waterfront are uncomfortable?” I responded. We ended up staying in the room. Lastly, that lovely bacon they serve at the buffet just wasn’t the same. Sad.

10/10 Exceptional

My husband and I loved our stay here. Not only is there a free shuttle service to and from the airport, but also within a two mile radius from the hotel. It was really nice having that service because we were in Boise for a conference and needed to get back and forth each day. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet, lots of options there. From the gorgeous river views, outstanding staff, shuttles, breakfasts, you can’t go wrong with The Riverside Hotel.

8/10 Very good

The room was clean but the light over the sink did not work. The closet also needed a light as it was quite dark. The Air conditioning was very quirky, we would try to heat the room but the cool air would come on.

Not for a single business visitor
The property is a regional conference center with pleasant groomed grounds and outdoor facilities. Because of its size and two-story layout, there is a lot of walking to access the restaurants. etc. For a single business visitor, I would recommend going elsewhere.
