My husband and I stayed here for 3 nites in October when we came to visit our son; a student at the University. The location is fantastic. Easy walk to lots. We took full advantage of the bikes and went on 2 wonderful bike rides - what a wonderful "perk" for the hotel to offer ! We are, what I... More

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 Don't get the wrong impression from the exterior outdated look.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

This may be the best hotel deal in Boulder! 5+ stars for value. Great downtown location at a price that can't be beat. We reserved a room for two nights and went on the waiting list for a third night. About a week before we came they emailed with the good news they had a room for us for the... More

I have to admit I was a little wary when I first pulled in and parked. It is one of those older motor lodges, circa 1960's but it did look neat enough and wow, in the heart of Boulder and within walking distance of everything! There is even a huge Alfalfa's right across the street. It was also so easy... More

The modestly-priced University Inn in Boulder has a great location, equidistant from the University and downtown Boulder with its plethora of restaurants. The room I had was spacious, however, the bathroom and shower stall were very cramped. WiFi was so slow as to be essentially useless. Overall, reasonably priced for what you get.

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
