This hotel is perched only a few blocks from the famous Pearl Street restaurant/shopping district. The rooms are updated, the price quite fair...especially when booking on-line in advance. Within 1 block there is a grocery store, library, University, fast food offerings and a deli. The front desk New Zealand lady tells you about the great breakfast, offers the use of... More

The location is fine. The rate is competitive. Why don't they want you to sleep ? If this sounds harsh then consider that I spent the first of two nights bathed in sweat. Every hour I would wake up and move. In the morning I realized something was wrong -- very wrong. Under the bed sheet was a PLASTIC SHEET,... More

We had a great stay at the University Inn! It was quite, clean, and very modern (They said the recently remodeled many rooms). The manager was a really nice guy, and the workers know Boulder attractions really well. Make sure to ask the font desk worker for tips on restaurants and things to do. Every tip we got was perfection.... More

This motel is perfectly located by the Rocky Mountain foothills, downtown Boulder, Alfalfa's health food store, Boulder Creek, farmer's market, and major RTD busline. There are free cruiser bikes available for comfortable rides around the city. It is only blocks from Pearl Street Mall and Canyon Avenue which are internationally-known shopping areas.

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

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
