We stayed here on our last night of a two-week road trip, it was the best deal we found for accommodation with breakfast in walking distance to Boulder city centre. We were happy with our stay but we didn't love it. The setup of the motel is charming, no doubt. The rooms are rustic and clean, they have a fridge,... More

We have stayed here twice in the past few years, and we absolutely love it. It is a short drive from Chautauqua, where we have enjoyed many concerts. Additionally, it is a short walk from the creek, park, bike path, and hiking areas. What a perfect way to start the day! We love that the rooms are so unique, and... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Foot of the Mountain Motel at least twice a year for the last six years and our experiences have remained consistently positive. This charming, unique, cabin-esque motor lodge sits at the base of the Flat Iron Mountain Range and across the street from a beautiful stream and city park. The best of... More

We had a 3-night stay during a festival. It was like being at home. It was quiet. We could take a walk in the morning along the creek. It is even possible to walk to Pearl Street. The kitchen was fully equipped and we could have meals in the dining room or on the terrace. Staff was friendly and efficient.

I was able to book the hideaway suite while recently in Boulder for a graduation ceremony. The accomodations were very clean and comfortable with the exception of the twin sofa bed. It was nearly unbearable and not to be recommended for use. The kitchen was clean and well equipped for a few days stay. There is no air conditioning, only... More

This is a tucked away, clean place. My husband and I were only in town one night and the only thing available was the Flagstaff Suite. We wished we had brought our family as it was spacious and had a living room, dining room,hot tub, porch, and kitchen. The staff was friendly and location was quiet and beautiful. Stay here... More

I was mostly looking for a place to use as a base for day hiking in the Indian Peaks. I was attracted to the west side of town location and reasonable price. I was a bit wary because the reviews here seem very polar - folks either love it or hate it. That is hard to reconcile. In the end,... More

Thank you for the thoughtful and lengthy review! It was so informative for our potential guests. You are so correct in your evaluation that this older but well kept motel is not for everyone but we do have wonderful guests, lots of fresh air and warm hospitality. We hope to see you again. More

The motel was very nice and at a great price. It's tucked away in a neighborhood, which made it quiet. The service could not have been better. The guy in the office (I want to say his name was Matt, but I can't remember) was as friendly and welcoming as we could've asked for. He was accommodating when we thought... More

My husband and I were driving to New Mexico from Minnesota and wanted the drive to be great, too. We had driven from Omaha and were tired, but they were so welcoming here and the setting was so beautiful we wanted to stay longer! A nice walk over to Pearl Street for dinner was recommended by our host and he... More
