Stayed here for its location to downtown pubs and shops. The bed/bedding left something to be desired. Something like a college dorm mattress in slightly smaller than full with that fleecy blanket with the "satin" on the end. The decor was older but clean. There is no mini fridge but the ice machine in the lobby works. The bathroom has... More

Clean hotel. Polite staff. EXCELLENT location. The hotel is clean - a little dated but has everything you need. Across the street is the wonderful Alfalfa's grocery. We ate lunch there the two days in Boulder. A short 3 block walk to the Pearl Street Mall for dinner, drinks, shopping, entertainment, etc. I would stay here again. PS - complimentary... More

Front desk staff were exceptional. In particular Giuseppe who was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Wished other hotels had staff like him! The room was a little dated but all in working condition and very clean. The location was superb, a short walk to both CU and Pearl Street. Very good value for money. Only places better priced were the... More

Like stepping back in time. This hotel feels like a step back to the1960s and has been maintained beautifully. The décor would be considered kitsch and some Americans would consider the bed small but we found it perfect. The staff are really friendly and the location couldn't be better. Breakfast is plentiful, fresh and yummy. Highly recommend a stay here.

This is a clean, we'll maintained, comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Reasonably price hotel provides fre wi-fi, continental breakfast and a clean pool. Centrally located a couple of blocks from Pearl Street, shopping, restaurants, trails, and other attractions.

Other reviews have not been friendly to this place, and I don't understand why. I love the location, the room wasn't bad, and front desk service was exceptional. Pearl Street is only three blocks from here and there is a health food store with deli across the street. The room is clean with no obvious need of repair. All the... More

At the risk of being repetitive, I would agree with Jeff H and totally disagree with Babbette_33 and onthesameday (3 very recent reviews). Basic rooms, large, clean, location perfect, very helpful staff, free bike rental (wow). We arrived late (2 hour plane delay) and were starving. The clerk (cute kid) directed us to a few choices. We chose South Mouth,... More
