I stayed for five nights at the Boulder Outlook. The Outlook stands out from the staid Best Western next door with its bright Caribbean paint job. There are some interesting advantages to staying at the Outlook. If what I saw is typical, the music scene is a knock-out. Blues Wednesday - Sunday with terrific musicians. On a recent Sunday night,... More

Ok, for a start, this is Boulder Colorado. Not your average city. This motel fits perfectly into the Boulder environment. Rough around the edges, means well, nice people, lots to do, trekking holidays sort of way. This is not your standard hotel. There are many amenities that I would not have expected such as bicycle rental, scooter rental, massage zone... More

This property is in dire need of some major repairs and refurbishing. I booked through Hotwire and was very disappointed. It's more like a Motel, and the main attraction is a water park area in the middle of the "courtyard". The room was less-than-average. Stains on the ceiling, crumbling plaster in the bathroom, an uncomfortable bed, and a feeling that... More

This hotel is awful! We stayed in a "pet friendly room"....doors don't close, rooms smell, mold in bathroom. Their claim to fame is zero waste....well that is one thing when things are kept clean!!! Restaurant / pool weren't 1/2 bad, but I would keep shopping!!!

An extended stay in Boulder was most enjoyable at Boulder Outlook, contrary to several reviews I had read. This hotel offers so much that other hotels do not, such as a large indoor heated pool & whirlpool, rock climbing walls, a restaurant & musical entertainment - all under one roof. Plenty of room to move around indoors when the weather... More

While the staff was very nice and friendly, I have to agree with other reviews. The rooms smelled old and musty. The room did not feel very clean and I did not want to walk around bare foot on the carpet. My kids loved the pool and that was definitely the highlight of the stay. It's a very big pool... More

Yes the rooms are old. On the other hand we enjoyed the blues music as well as the food in the restaurant. If it had not been chilly we would have used the free bikes. Breakfast was fine and plentiful. Staff nice. We used the computer in the lobby as well as free WiFi to make arrangements for our visit... More

My son and I were visiting CU Boulder and stayed here because of the location. The room smelled of stale cigarettes, the beds were very firm, and the pillows were horrible. The property was not very well kept up.

Literally stinks: I'm washing everything that sat in my room because it all smells of old smoke and mold and something else I can't identify...nasty. Sorry: true. It's a "zero waste" hotel and I wanted to love it, but despite some nice staff and the amenities (free wifi, bicycles for guests to use!) I would have left it after one... More

We were at this hotel due to a wedding. We booked this hotel through Priceline and got a good deal. Than I read the reviews and got scared. However, I think some of the reviews were a bit harsh. When we got there we had a king room and we needed a standard double. Due to the floods they were... More
