Located off the interstate, the Hampton Inn & Suites Boise-Meridian is close to downtown, Roaring Springs Water Park, the football stadium, speedways, and Wahooz Family Fun Park. The hotel offers free breakfast with waffles, cereal and rotating hot items, free Wi-Fi, an onsite convenience store, a 24-hour indoor heated pool and an outdoor basketball court (check out basketballs at the front desk.)
For rooms, there are standard rooms and suites. Families will particularly like the one-bed king studio suite with a sleeper sofa and the two-room king suite with a living area and a sleeper sofa. Both suites have microwaves and refrigerators.

Always a great place to stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms and nice variety at breakfast.
Good location to I-84 and restaurants in Meridian.
Really enjoy the phone key options. Eliminates the need for the room key.
Spent a week at this hotel while in town on business. I was upgraded to a full-size suite, which made my stay extremely comfortable. Nothing fancy, but I didn't expect much, to begin with. My room was well-equipped, down to a hot tub. TVs in every room, a microwave, a coffee-maker and a mini-fridge I don't even have to mention. The common areas are very cozy and welcoming. The hotel has a coin-operated laundry room.
The exercise room is the only "blemish" on otherwise impeccable grade - it's small, with only three cardio machines, one of which is broken, and a simple rack of dumbbells. HOWEVER, they offer you a complimentary pass (upon request) to a nearby Axiom gym - an excellent, huge, 24/7 facility literally 5 minutes away by car. Also, there is a heated indoor pool on the ground floor, I saw families with little kids there all the time.
The breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Ok, it's not a full buffet at an upscale resort, but all the main ingredients are there, incl. fruit smoothies and healthy foods.
The staff was very good: attentive, pleasant and fast.
