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

Great convenient location right where we wanted to be in the heart of boulder. The room was modern, beautiful and comfortable. Service was great too. It is a nondescript roadway motel from the exterior, but very nice inside. Excellent deal.

Only spent one night here, but would definitely return. The room was very nice and we took advantage of the fridge and microwave to have some amazing left over pizza that we had downtown. Such an easy walk to everything and the front desk was very friendly.

We have just returned from our trip to Colorado and we loved this hotel. Don't get the wrong impression from the exterior outdated look. The rooms are newly renovated and they are very comfortable. The front desk personnel is friendly and can give you nice tips on things to do. The best feature of the hotel is its location, just... More
