Loved the lavatory separate from the shower/toilet. Clean, comfy room. Walking distance to Pearl Street. Don't miss going to McGuckin Hardware! H & M also nearby. Staff was very accommodating when we had to cancel the last night that morning! We didn't have any problems with parking, although it is somewhat limited.

My boyfriend and I are young travelers who wanted to be close to downtown Boulder (mainly Pearl Street), so we stayed at the University Inn. This hotel sits right in between the UC Boulder campus and downtown Boulder which was a perfect location to us as we walked around both. Since we planned our trip day-by-day we never knew what...

Budget motel built in the 60's motel in the heart of Boulder. While modest on the outside, the renovated rooms are upscale and marvelous. The rooms are small as befits a hotel of this age but the renovated rooms have large bathrooms, great beds and sheets and are tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It really feels... More

Check in and check out were a breeze. Stayed in the junior suite - a great fit if you are traveling with kids or just want a little extra space. The room was great, updated, and well appointed. Unfortunately, a work crew showed up at 9 am to work directly beneath our room. The great part about CO in the... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the university inn and I would readily stay again. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The motel offers a good breakfast, free wifi. And free car parking close to the city centre! Just a few blocks walk from where all the action happens. A local real estate company has also... More

Very nice room we booked through tripadvisor at a decent price. King size bed lower floor. Close to Pearl St. Great location for university visit or for sightseeing. It is in the same block of Boulder Creek.

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to give this hotel a shot, and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were updated and the entire space was very clean. The shower was very nice sized with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash provided. We did have to crack the bathroom window because there was no exhaust fan. The location is... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location. Easy access to Estes Park and Denver, as well as so many sights in Boulder. We walked or biked everywhere we wanted to see in Boulder, then returned to the hotel for a swim and a restful night of sleep. I was pleasantly surprised that we could not hear any road noise or...
