Don't get fooled by the outside aspect. This place is amazing, I think it has just been renewed. THe location is perfect, walking distance to Pearl Mall Street and The Hill. You can also enjoy a walk or a bike ride (for free at the hotel) alongside the Boulder's Creek. The staff is really helpful. Giuseppe (the Hotel Manager) was... More

This was our second time staying at the University Inn. We have a son at the University and this place is perfect for us. What keeps us coming back is the location. We can walk to everywhere we need to go. We have stayed at other hotels in Boulder and this is definitely the best value for the location. The... More

My boyfriend and I went to boulder for the weekend from Denver and stayed here. We loved it! The price is awesome, the rooms are very clean, the staff is very welcoming and helpful. The location is perfect too. It's right next to boulder creek where we spent a day tubbing and very close walk to pearl street mall. All... More

We stayed here for the Ironman Boulder. Great location close to everything. The rooms have been renovated and had a very European feel. Yeah they are small but designed so that we did not feel cramped at all. Beautiful tiled walk in showers. All the amenities that you would expect from a higher priced hotel. Our room had a king...

The location is great--short walk to Pearl Street as well as the University--and the room was clean and up-to-date, particularly the bathroom. I thought the rate was on the high side but considering breakfast was included, I decided to book the room. The offerings at breakfast were somewhat adequate but I expected some fresh fruit--apples, bananas--but no. And peanut butter... More

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
