Boise Guest House is an antiquated rooming house which might appear to be charming from the descriptions but is actually quite disappointing. Our $200+ room was listed as a 'story suite' but was actually a cramped single room with a bunch of random items--microwave, refrigerator, table--added to make it seem like more than just a room. None of the furniture matched and the chairs provided were the wrong height for the table. The 'bathroom' sink is tiny and actually located in the room, not in the bathroom. The building itself is over 100 years old and is many ways that's obvious. For example- the area for hanging clothes was not a closet but rather a small very dark curtain-shrouded niche next to the bed, about two feet in height, that was actually pretty scary looking. As it was so low it was necessary to bend way over to either place clothes there or retrieve them. Finally, they have a self check in system, which is convenient, but as a consequence, no staff are on the premises, making the whole experience a bit creepy. The Boise downtown Hyatt, a few blocks west, is a much better deal for $40 less--huge room, brand new facility with a pool and a great breakfast.
