A really nice place to stay downtown.

Posted 8-Aug-2015
Pros: I liked the modern décor and clean and hospitable room.
Location: The area is filled with restaurants and bars. There are many different types of merchandise for sale in shops of the area. The capitol building rocks!
Everything went smoothly with my two night stay at the Modern Hotel. I had a late check in and was treated with care. I really enjoyed the helpfulness of the staff. I needed some help with navigation and was shown exactly where I needed to go. The breakfast was very nice. I thought that the room was very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Being right downtown was perfect for me. I was able to walk around a bit and enjoyed Boise very much.

Clean and comfortable with a very friendly and accomodating staff. Nice patio and bar open until midnight. Walking distance to Capitol and downtown. Clean rooms and air conditioning worked great. Just a half block down the same street to a state liquor store which was very convenient. I would stay there again.

Fun and visually pleasing hotel

Posted 1-Aug-2015
Pros: Modern design of rooms, patio where food and drinks are available. Friendly staff. Quiet location.
Cons: More parking.
Location: We had a rental car and drove over to the Basque Block and restaurants. It would have been walkable as well.
The hotel was funky and fun, staff were very friendly and attentive and the onsite bar and patio definitely add to our great experience at this hotel.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Loved the funky retro character, loaner bikes and proximity to downtown and the green belt.

Remodeled older small hotel in downtown Boise

Posted 27-Jul-2015
Nice location for walking to shopping and restaurants. Good bar and food menu. According to the website, our stay was supposed to include a continental breakfast. However, upon arrival, we were told that was only for Monday through Thursday. Since we were staying the weekend, we didn't get any breakfast. And the website didn't say there was a limitation on the days breakfast was served. Also, when I checked in, I was told that my debit card would be pre-authorized for "incidentals", even though I had already paid for the room. They ended up placing a $250 hold on my debit card, which I've never he happen before. When I brought it to their attention, they said it should only have been a $50 hold and would remove it. However, three days later the $250 hold is still on there.

"Pet friendly" but does NOT accept cats.

Posted 22-Jul-2015
My husband and I booked a room at the Modern Hotel and Bar in Boise as part of our cross country move (Nashville, TN to Portland, OR). We were excited because we saw that the hotel was pet friendly, as we would be bringing our cat with us on the trip. We called to confirm that they accepted pets before booking. After driving 8+ hours, we arrived only to be told that they do NOT accept cats, only dogs. The front desk clerk called the manager to see if there was any way to accommodate us but was told no, they absolutely cannot allow cats. The manager was kind enough to transfer us to the cat (and dog)-friendly Safari Inn just down the street for no charge. However, the new hotel was considerably less expensive than what we had already paid to stay at the Modern Hotel and Bar. So, while we were happy to not be on the streets with our cat, we felt that we got the short end of the stick and the Modern Hotel and Bar ended up making money on what was, I believe, their mistake (since no one told us when we called that they do not accept cats, and it isn't printed any where on their website). We did end up walking back to the Modern Hotel and Bar to have dinner and drinks and both were delicious. It's just unfortunate that they didn't attempt to help make up for the fact that we lost money in the hotel transfer. The bottom line is: this hotel does not accept cats! Beware!
