    I was very disappointed in our stay at this motel. They call it a hotel, but it's a motel. I paid the price of a hotel, however. The room we had appeared to have been barely cleaned - there was a hair in the tub, the tub was dingy, and there were streaks/water spots everywhere. It was loud (other guests)... More

    I had a great experience staying at this hotel. Great continental breakfast but more importantly, great service. Malcolm was more than willing to help my lacrosse teammates out with anything we needed. Highly Recommend staying at this hotel for a good nights sleep and a better customer service experience.

    This hotel is very rundown, not a plus that is for sure. I attempted to stay at the hotel, I was going to a concert in town, and wanted to be able to have a couple drinks. They were attempting to do renovations, I give them that, my room had just been painted and the smell was too powerful. I... More

    I bought the ski package and received 2 ski vouchers for the Eldora Ski area. They set aside the vouchers so I could pick them up in the morning (so I could ski that day) and then stay at the Motel that night. Great room with firm but soft top beds and great bedding, usually I'm cold but, the beds... More

    The Best Western Plus in Boulder surprised me in being much nicer than my memory of other Best Western hotels. The room was well appointed and clean, with most of the amenities one expects. The breakfast buffet was very substantial and offered much more than most hotels of this type, including hot scrambled eggs and bacon. The staff was very... More

    I have stayed here since my son was a freshman (now senior) and have never been disappointed. The people behind the desk are always polite and helpful.

    Very helpful staff. There was a huge snow storm while we were here and every one was so helpful! Especially appreciated staff in parking lot, Joe, who scraped the snow off our rental car and kept the lot clear of big snow piles! Thank you! Very clean, great breakfast, awesome staff! We would definitely stay here again!

    The people who work here love their jobs, they're very kind, and do their very best to ensure you have a good stay. The breakfast is also nice. The only thing I struggled with here was the ease with which I could hear my neighbors. If you're a light sleeper, get an end room if possible. A special Thank You... More

    The hotel was clean, the staff friendly, and there is walking access to the UC campus. Good stay. The hotel did not honor the group rate promised, but the staff was great giving directions and advice about restaurants.
