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

For business and personal reasons, I had to stay in Boulder for over 5 months. I liked the Colo. Spgs. Broadmoor Hotel but stayed only one night at $1,000 a night. If I had to do this for 5 months it would have been at least $150,000 plus tips. I found the Boulder University Inn to be perfect in every... More

Disappointing stay in Nov. 2013 - visiting Univ of Colorado with my son so chose this hotel for the location near campus and Pearl Street. Room was dated. It was in the 30s which is not cold, but the room was freezing. Heater went on every 5 minutes and air still poured through the bathroom window. Breakfast that was included... More

It was the perfect location for my night in Boulder, and my room was clean. While I have no truly negative comments, those two points are about all that this place has going for it. It is, IMHO, basically a $45 motel for $100+ per night. Cheap bed (poor support), cheap pillows, cheap wall-mounted shampoo and soap dispensers, cheap and... More

The location is great, parking is easy. The motel is fairly clean, very outdated Not as nice as website pics), and fairly functional, i.e. an average motel.... More

Stayed here for its location to downtown pubs and shops. The bed/bedding left something to be desired. Something like a college dorm mattress in slightly smaller than full with that fleecy blanket with the "satin" on the end. The decor was older but clean. There is no mini fridge but the ice machine in the lobby works. The bathroom has... More

We ate lunch there the two days in Boulder. A short 3 block walk to the Pearl Street Mall for dinner, drinks, shopping, entertainment, etc. I would stay here again. PS - complimentary... More

The room was a little dated but all in working condition and very clean. The location was superb, a short walk to both CU and Pearl Street. Very good value for money. Only places better priced were the... More
