Upon arriving at the hotel we all realize that someone had deleted my reservation. They searched for a few moments and found an extra room and ended up giving me an almost $100 discount. Titties. This is the best way to have approached with and dealt with the problem at hand, and I commend the staff for their diligence. I... More

Stayed here with a group of 35 people overnight when competing at the university, professional, patient and helpful staff, wonderful rooms and great location very close to Pearl Street. Absolutely recommend.

This is at least my fifth visit to the University Inn. I spent the weekend (2/27 and 2/28) while visiting my son who is enrolled at CU. This hotel is very reasonably priced, clean, has comfortable beds and is very close to campus. I was thrilled to finally experience the remodeled sleeping rooms. They had been promising to update the... More

The price for the location is a major draw for the University Inn. In fact, if you need to spend a few nights in Boulder without a car and don't want to bother with a rental car, this an ideal budget location. A large variety of restaurants and shops are a short and enjoyable walk away, as are a couple... More

This review is far overdue; we stayed at University Inn right after Xmas 2014 (Dec 27th - 31st). Let's see....where to start? There were SO many wonderful things about this hotel! We are from DC and went to CO for Xmas to visit relatives up in Nederland. There was so much snow up there at 8500 feet that we were... More

Quite nice motel-style lodgings. Very clean and obviously recently renovated. Splendid lication: Very close to the university, pearl street...pretty much all of downtown Boulder within walking distance. Front desk staff were quite friendly. There was a little noise from outside during the night, but that's to be expected considering the location. My only complaint would be the complementary breakfast, which... More

Boulder is a wonderful city to visit, and the staff at University Inn made my trip even better. It is conveniently located near the Pearl Street Mall, where all the good restaurants and shops are located. The hotel has free parking. Don't be fooled by the exterior of the hotel (which looks like a drive-in motel), rooms are fully revamped... More

My husband and I booked this hotel just hours before arriving - our decision was based on Trip Advisor reviews and the price. When we checked in, I asked for a quite room and they delivered - not a peep! Rooms were small, but all necessary accommodations were there and my needs were met. It's an awesome location if you...

I flew in to Denver international and took the bus (for $13) to Boulder. I was left off about one block away from the University Inn. As I approached the property, my first thought was..."uh oh" as it looks to be your typical 'motel' kind of looking place you would normally stop for a quick, cheap stop over somewhere along...

I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and cleanliness of the University Hotel, but unfortunately upon checkout, my boyfriend and I received the single worst customer service experience we have ever had. We checked on January 31, 2014 and stayed at the hotel through January 2, 2015. The night before we were due to check out, January 1, we called... More
