This is a glorified motel; nice renovations; busy/noisy street which we could hear from our room; walking distance to Central Park where there is a Wednesday evening farmers market with great tamales. WIFI was good. Didn't try the breakfast since my husband was demanding a full, cooked breakfast :(. Room was a bit small for the 2 of us to... More

The hotel is in the heart of Boulder, walking distance to the Pearl Street area (Chophouse! Foolish Craig's! Peppercorn!). The staff is always friendly and helpful. It's a great deal, and they renovated the rooms a year or so ago - very nice. Free wireless works well, there's a serviceable breakfast (bagels, yogurt, toast, coffee, etc) every day. I stay...

This hotel is very misleading from the outside. when you drive up it looks like an old fashioned 2 story motel that has seen better days. Inside are newly renovated/modern rooms and bathrooms. Great location to the CU campus. You pay for the location the rates are not cheap. Parking is an issue if you get there late you need... More

Ok. I tried to stay at the Boulderado & the St. Julien & they were booked. The new Hyatt is by the train tracks so that was out. The Martiott was booked & it's nice but not the greatest location unless u r walking to the stadium for a game. This place looks like your typical roadside motel from the... More

The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly. You can easily walk to Pearl Street and lots of restaurants and stores. We can and our son got very sick and we extended our stay and the staff went out of their way to help us with our questions.

Don't judge hotel by the cover! Great rate and the inside rooms have been nicely renovated! Luv luv the shower and clean rooms, pretty neat modern decor. Above all the staff was over the top awesome. My son lost his wallet and they turned the room upside down three times trying to help us find it! Of course Murphy would... More

Loved the lavatory separate from the shower/toilet. Clean, comfy room. Walking distance to Pearl Street. Don't miss going to McGuckin Hardware! H & M also nearby. Staff was very accommodating when we had to cancel the last night that morning! We didn't have any problems with parking, although it is somewhat limited.

My boyfriend and I are young travelers who wanted to be close to downtown Boulder (mainly Pearl Street), so we stayed at the University Inn. This hotel sits right in between the UC Boulder campus and downtown Boulder which was a perfect location to us as we walked around both. Since we planned our trip day-by-day we never knew what...

Budget motel built in the 60's motel in the heart of Boulder. While modest on the outside, the renovated rooms are upscale and marvelous. The rooms are small as befits a hotel of this age but the renovated rooms have large bathrooms, great beds and sheets and are tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It really feels... More

Check in and check out were a breeze. Stayed in the junior suite - a great fit if you are traveling with kids or just want a little extra space. The room was great, updated, and well appointed. Unfortunately, a work crew showed up at 9 am to work directly beneath our room. The great part about CO in the... More
