This Motel is perfect for inexpensive quick get away. it's all we needed to sleep, bathe, and head out again! The cabin was cute, small. It was not very clean and yes it could use a little TLC, but if you are a camper type, appreciate a great location and good bed it's all you need. we usually stay at... More

Holy wow. I truly felt like I was staying at a meth lab motel. The setting is beautiful, but it's really unbelievable how downright disgusting the rooms are. I felt like I was in an episode of 'Breaking Bad.' Thrift store bought furniture was falling apart, bugs on the cracked walls and ceiling, hairs left behind by previous occupants. Amazing... More

We had stayed before, so even though we knew that the motel had seen better days, we booked because of the great location, the affordable rate and the friendly owners. None of those three things, however, made up for the filthy conditions. Blood marks on the walls, actual litter on the floors, dust on every surface were it could lay,... More

This place is definitely in a great location--15 minute walk to the hip Pearl Street area, and on a quiet edge of town. We stayed in one of the front cabins. Pros: easy parking, location, price, ease of walk to Boulder Creek, 55cent soda machine on the front porch, super easy check-in process, a/c kept the room cool Cons: new... More

I graduated from CU- Boulder in 2008, and my fiance and I recently took a trip through the area. I am most accustomed to staying in hotels in the downtown of Boulder for the visits I've mad,e such as the Boulderado or Boulder Marriot, but we decided to try this small out of the way hotel. We had an awesome... More

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
