The secret is out about Boise. The quiet Idaho capital is a haven for outdoor lovers looking to get away from the crowded slopes and trails found in surrounding states. It may seem like hiking, skiing and savoring the great outdoors are no walks in the park for your wallet, but a budget break can be done, especially when you check into these cheap hotels in Boise – bookable on Culture Trip.

Courtyard by Marriott Boise Downtown, for a centrally located classic

It isn’t skimping on the perks to keep the rates down, either. All king rooms have walk-in showers and oversize work desks. Also, you’ll get free airport transfers. No car is required to make the most of your extra cash; you can walk to Zoo Boise, the Boise Art Museum and hiking trails right from the hotel lobby.

Wary of high nightly rates closer to the city? Best Western totally appreciates your suspicions. That’s why this cheap hotel on the outskirts of Boise keeps you firmly on I-84. You’ll love the free breakfasts and complimentary high-speed internet. Evening reception also treats you to your fill of milk and cookies – you won’t be finding that in just any joint. We’d tell you about the indoor pool and spa, too, but we don’t want to spoil too much of a good thing.
