August 2013: we were lucky and had the upstairs end unit backing into the high school play fields and Boulder Creek. Typical Motel Room environment .... nothing to do cartwheels for ... However, the location was great ... within a short walk to Pearl Street and it's many restaurants, brew pubs and boutiques.... The complimentary breakfast was "lacking"

There was room at the Inn!!! The price was right, too!!! We were so graciously greeted by Giuseppe (the manager)! From the outside, it looks like a drive up motel… the room (second floor- by the pool) was wonderful- it was as nice as a national chain. The mountains in the background were pretty, too. The bed was comfortable, the... More

We spent one night in Boulder at University Inn and could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. This hotel was half the price of many others and it had everything we could want. We had one of the renovated king rooms on the second floor. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and nicely finished. The manager... More

Very comfy king bed and elegant, just-renovated bathroom with luxurious shower stall. You wouldn't know it from the typical, 2-story motor lodge appearance. Great location: right by the main intersection of the Boulder Creek Path and easy walk to Pearl Street Mall (which you MUST visit). Farmers Market also right behind the Inn. But vagabonds gather and sleep by the... More

Took a chance and was not disappointed. Cute room. Small but sufficient. Very close to pearl street mall. Across from boulder univ. price was ok. Fulfilled our needs. Would recommend. Especially liked the close proximity to pearl street mall where we went for dinner and a nice walk to stretch out after a long drive

Stayed here two nights with a colleague while attending a conference. Rooms were very clean. Jana, who runs the place, was very helpful with a last minute room change (we booked a single bed room by accident). Also, my colleague with whom I was traveling realized he was missing his watch after leaving boulder. Jana and the other staff searched... More

Quite surprised just how awful my experience was here. My girlfriend and I checked in for a night for some Boulder carousing and never again will select this hotel. First, we get to room and the key doesn't work so back to the front desk to get a key that actually opens the room. Ok, into the room and we... More
