I lived in Boulder for 25 years and still come to visit a few times each year. This is the ideal place to stay - especially for Bolder Boulder. The location is great, staff is very friendly, and rooms are nicely updated. Giuseppe at the front desk goes out of his way to make sure you have a pleasant stay.... More

Everything was fine: clean room and you can walk into town with lots of shops and places to eat. Alfalfa supermarket located across the street and worth a visit. We had a Junior Suite and it was great to have the extra space with the little living room. Also loved the modern bathroom with the walk-in shower.

I have to say, I was skeptical at first. The building is old-school, and a bit run down. However, the room was exceptionally clean, and had plenty of space. My only complaint was that there was no heat in the bathroom, which was quite chilly, as it snowed the night we were there. The best thing, however, was that the... More

This hotel is a hidden gem in Boulder. It is easy walking distance to CU-Boulder and Pearl Street. We really didn't need a car to get around - just walked everywhere once we got to the hotel. Our room (1st floor) had a king bed, microwave and refrigerator. Outside entrances to rooms - 2 floors. The international staff was extremely... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to score tickets to a concert at the Boulder Theater and decided to stay the night at the University Inn. The University Inn has a great location near the Pearl Street pedestrian mall with short walk to the Boulder Theater. Easy access to all the restaurants and fun to be had downtown. Also... More

For this trip, we were looking for a clean room, comfy bed and great location for a fair price and this spot fit the bill. It is not a luxury hotel and there is no attempt made to act like one. However, the staff is very friendly and as helpful as many 5 star establishments we have visited. We walked... More

I stayed in the hotel 12 nights while I was looking for a place to live in Boulder. I'm a graduate student researching at the CU and the location was perfect to me, because I could easily walk to campus. The staff was great, always ready to help, and the room had everything I need: a confortable bed, a microwave,... More

I recently stayed at the University Inn of Boulder when I attended a conference at the University of Colorado. The location was perfect: 10' walk to the University and 10' walk to downtown. From the outside it looks like your average motel, but the rooms are very nice and clean. My room was a double, and it was really nice... More

We were visiting CU, and after a long day of tours and presentations, drove just 3 minutes to roll into the University Inn, which is directly on one of the main thoroughfares s of Boulder. The University Inn doesn't look so inviting from the outside: however, it is a gem in disguise. Our room (number 210) looked out towards the... More

This recently remodeled motel is great for a trip to Boulder. Located between the University and Pearl Street, you can park at the property (free parking!) and walk around town. The staff was friendly and the room, while nothing fancy, was pleasant and clean. I highly recommend the University Inn.
