The hotel situation in Boulder is dismal, especially if you are in town for a major event like move-in or a football game. Boulder Outlook may show up on your search because it is probably the last place to book up. The staff are friendly, it's a reasonable location close to the University, and it's cheap, but at the end... More

But they are only masking problems in the quality of the facility. Their renovations did not reach the guest rooms. The room we stayed in was shabby, with torn and stained sheets, damaged furniture, cracked bath tiles, flat pillows, and worn-through covers. Our breakfast buffet was adequate, but I expected more from a hotel that bills themselves as zero waste.... More

Look, if you're looking for an affordable hotel in Boulder and you have a car, this might be the place for you. We did have a car but found that we probably could have got a better hotel in a better location for just a bit more. The hotel offers an indoor pool, a cafe, and the grounds were kept... More

Very confusing internet, with like 10 routers... but none of them are fast. Speedtest.net results show avg. download speed of 1.36 Mbps, and avg. upload speed of 3.46 Mbps.. (fairly inconsistent and laggy). It took many seconds to even connect to that site (and this one). Would not recommend if you hope to use the wifi.

An older motel and about average but very dated. It reminds me of a Rt. 66 motel. I did enjoy the blues bar and restaurant on premises and the friendly staff. The price would be way high anywhere else but it's the best I could find in Boulder.

basic roadside motel with an indoor swimming pool. (which made the whole building smell chlorine...) close to university, NIST, NOAA etc. tired rooms free bike rental, ( in exchange for your email address...) the price is like 60% of the hotel next door. (which pretty much looks the same from the outside)

Pretty nice place very close to the Univ. Colo.Boulder. Room was average in comfort & clean. Decent breakfast - nothing spectacular. Zero (or near-zero) landfill waste program fairly impressive. We would most likely stay here again when in Boulder.

We were very surprised with our stay. First off, Jenny was a sweetheart when I called to see about vacancies and their pet policy. Jenny was extremely polite and reserved our room on the phone. We had an easy check in. It was inexpensive compared to other chain hotels we stayed. The room was nice and I should know not... More
