    Listen! Places to stay in Boise?

    I'm from South Florida, and I'm planning a trip to Boise for the end of the month or early next month. Looking for good places to stay in the Boise area. Need something cheap, and nearby the airport, but willing to look around... anyone got an extra room?

    Wont be able to ride MTB on this trip, any road riding to do? Weather?

    thanks a bunch...

    Is there any particular reason you need to stay near the airport? And what is your definition of "cheap"? Go stay downtown and it would be better, but more spendy.

    I do believe some of the more budget hotels like Motel 6, Super 8 and Inn America are advertising their room rates starting at around $45 or so. Typical for what those airport type of hotels are usually charging.

    These are the ones within a mile or so of BOI:
    Best Western
    Comfort Inn
    Extended Stay
    Fairfield Inn
    Hampton Inn
    Holiday Inn
    Holiday Inn Express
    Inn America
    Motel 6
    Sleep Inn
    Shilo Inn
    Super 8

    Again....just typical airport hotels. They are clustered in between Vista Avenue, Broadway Avenue and the interstate. Nothing exciting. There are some fast food places around there along with a Kopper Kitchen and Denny's.

    Downtown is a straight shot from the airport and will take less than 15 mins.

    get a room at the Idaho Heritage Inn Bed and Breakfast on 1st and Idaho.

    you can walk or ride downtown. it's on the quiet end of downtown (well, st. lukes hospital is there, but it's still quiet).

    you'll get a comfy room for the same price or better price as a hotel (especially when you take into account breakfast).

    you can ride right from the B&B. mtn bike in the footies. or head through the north end to ride up bogus basin road or along hill road for a road ride. you could also head up broadway and hit the greenbelt for a relaxing road ride along the boise river without dealing with traffic.

    and you'll be less than 15 minutes from BOI.

    also, the house is super old and utilizes geothermal for water and heat.

    the folks the run it are super nice and cook some tasty breakfast. cookies and wine at night.

    When we have work visitors come to town I recommend the Safari Inn. It's downtown, within easy walking distance of many places to eat and visit. It's not next to the airport, but a $10-12 cab ride will get you there. It's defiitely a no-frills motel, but it's cheap and a good location.

    Safari Motor Inn (used to be a Best Western)
    1070 W Grove St
    Boise, ID 83702
    (208) 344-6556
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    I will agree with laffeaux. I go to boise a couple nights a month and I always stay at The Safari Inn. It's pretty decent ant it is right downtown so alot of good restaurants and bars within walking or stumbling distance.
