I come for business every few months and it’s the only place I stay. Great employees, in fact the person who checked me in remembered me! Rooms always clean and very comfortable. Also, rooms very quiet which o appreciate.

Inn at 500 Capital is a quaint little boutique hotel on the edge of downtown Boise. It is small enough that you do not feel lost in the crowds and the location is walkable to a wide assortment of festive downtown dining options - which is absolutely recommended. For those not familiar with Boise, it is a great little city. There are many interesting little restaurants (some chains, but mostly unique local places) and entertainment options that you can visit day or night without ever feeling unsafe. One of the best amenities at the hotel is the snack bar. Guests are able to pick up light snacks (chips, granola bars, rice crispy treats and similar small items) and drinks (sodas, water) for free at the front desk. The seemingly unfillable teenage kids love grabbing snacks before they head to their room. My wife particularly likes being able to grab a bottle of water each time we leave the hotel. The hotel requires valet parking as there is no public parking lot. But the valet station is continually staffed and there is normally someone around with little to no waiting. The staff is friendly and we have never had an issue during our half dozen visits. One amenity the hotel is missing is a pool. Boise is not where we go looking for a swimming vacation, but if that is important to you, then look elsewhere. While they do have a hotel restaurant, there are much better options nearby.
