I thought I was booking one of the vintage looking cabins in the front of the property but actually got an exterior entry motel room in the isolated rear of the property. Appeared to be decorated in the 60's or 70's and for the first time ever for me, I wedged the desk chair under the door knob. The man... More

Very run down. Kind of scary in the back where the REAL rooms are located. I think there is a squatter who lives in the trailer by the rooms. Smudges on walls, second bedroom had a small hole in the corner the size of a .50 coin where I'm sure bugs or rodents live, wifi did not work and neither... More

My wife stayed here during a conference at another hotel nearby. The price was very good, the setting very nice, and the cabin where she stayed was charming. It's in a natural setting next to one of Boulder's beautiful parks. It was thoroughly enjoyable.

I have been here for 2 months working in Boulder. I was quoted a price when I came in. Went to pay for my room tonight and they wanted 40 more per night. The house keeping staff is terrible. Nice big rooms to stay in. Overall a good stay until they changed my rate.

I am a Boulder native who came back for a week visit which turned in to an extended stay due to circumstances. Upon returning I could not find a single hotel in the area that was anywhere near as reasonable with their rates except the Silver Saddle. When my trip was extend the owners (it is family owned for many... More

My fiancee and I arrived (slightly early) so we sat in the parking lot as the office didn't open until 10 am. We called from that parking lot several times and got no answer. Finally on knocking at the door after a grueling 16 hr commute from Wisconsin the door was answered by a discourteous, rude and disrespectful man who... More

Um, I am not sure who has been writing these reviews for this motel, but this place is a dump. I will give a thumbs up for location and that is it. This is the kind of place where they picture the cute cabins in the ad - then you drive up behind the place where the rest of the... More

To be honest we did have some issues with our cleaning staff for the past few months and we have finally remedied this by personally taking over the cleaning of the units ourselves and the difference is already apparent. My wife and I are still new to running a motel, but we learn new things every day, and believe we... More

I was put in the strip motel section behind the cabins. They room was way dated. I was told to leave the window open so the A/C would work????? Really, leave the window open? There is only an A/C in the bedroom. The refrigerator was not working. In fairness, they did offer to give me a cooler with ice. We... More

Stayed here recently while my son was in school at CU. I tend to seek out older properties in Colorado for the nostalgia they offer. This motel has character but is sorely in need of attention. The cabin I stayed in was probably one of the original cabins built in the '40's. It was very basic, moderately clean but very... More

We were going to Boulder to pick up a new puppy from the breeder. The trip was last minute and we weren't able to get a reservation anyplace in Boulder, so we knew we were in for a struggle. We pulled into the Silver Saddle about 7:30 PM and they were full. The owner made many calls trying to find... More
