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

We stayed 4 nights . The people that work there treated us like we were old friends. And for me it's all about feeling welcomed and comfortable. A real down home kind of place. The price was very reasonable. So I now I will be staying here on my next visit..

We stayed at the Silver Saddle June 23 - July 1, 2013. Our initial review started out with a much higher rating, but with our extended stay it crashed fast. Overall, this is a place to sleep and store your stuff with a great location. We will not be back. Moving in was awesome. Our flight was delayed due to... More

We stayed in cabin 14 for two nights. This place is desperately in need of some TLC. So sad, because it could be an awesome place to stay. The location is great near the park, the creek and Pearl St. and the Hill area. We walked to them all. There is access to the red rock hiking area just across... More

We stayed at the Silver Saddle Motel over Memorial Day Weekend for our anniversary vacation. As other reviewers stated, the accommodations are quite small (we stayed in one of the little cabins), but seeing as it was our anniversary weekend, we thought it was quite cozy and quaint. We called the day that we were coming in to ask about... More
