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.

Upon arriving at the hotel we all realize that someone had deleted my reservation. They searched for a few moments and found an extra room and ended up giving me an almost $100 discount. Titties. This is the best way to have approached with and dealt with the problem at hand, and I commend the staff for their diligence. I... More

This is at least my fifth visit to the University Inn. I spent the weekend (2/27 and 2/28) while visiting my son who is enrolled at CU. This hotel is very reasonably priced, clean, has comfortable beds and is very close to campus. I was thrilled to finally experience the remodeled sleeping rooms. They had been promising to update the... More

The price for the location is a major draw for the University Inn. In fact, if you need to spend a few nights in Boulder without a car and don't want to bother with a rental car, this an ideal budget location. A large variety of restaurants and shops are a short and enjoyable walk away, as are a couple... More
