The hotel itself was clean with courteous staff. Breakfast was good too. The room we were in had a great view of the foothills. I'd recommend you ask for one of those rooms. I think we had 315. The only thing a little strange was the location. Some might consider it not in the greatest area. We did not feel... More

My husband & I recently stayed 8 nights at this Boulder hotel. When in town visiting our son we usually stay closer to "downtown". This trip we opted for the Holiday Inn Express as our son just moved to that North Boulder area and we would be closer to him. The drive from the hotel parking lot to the Spruce... More

Nice place in a beautiful town. The hotel lobby has brochures for local attractions as well as Boulder city parks and trails, and you can just walk out the front door and stretch out your legs in a scenic and pedestrian-friendly area. Great Mexican restaurant nearby--just ask at the front desk and they will tell you how to get to... More

Thank you for your review. We're glad you were able to enjoy a walk in the beautiful foothills of the rocky mountains. Having a trail head within a block of the hotel offers our guests the unique opportunity of escaping into nature by literally walking out the front door. More

Very nice and helpful staff. Quick check in. Very clean. Comfortable room. In a safe area. Dog friendly with good potty areas. Only dropped a star because there was a lot of poop not picked up in the dog walk area and no trash can near the back doors to deposit ours (likely linked to the poo prob). Our a/c... More

Check in was fast. Room in great condition. Clean and everything in place. Minimum noise at night, and perfect sleep. Great breakfast selection, from pancakes, to oatmeal, toast, egg omelette and gravy. Convenient location close to attractions in Boulder.

Went on Vacation with my daughter for what should have been a great memory but ended with a week of stress and aggravation.

Overall the hotel is good value, but if you are able to pay a little more for location, it is worth it, as the hotel is in the outskirts of Boulder. Good service, but the rooms seem like they need a bit of renovation.

I am trying to recall anything outstanding at this hotel, really it was clean, staff friendly, the rooms looked newer. The in-room temperature control could be better since I dislike these units where there isn't an automated temperature control, but you have to dial in heat/cold knobs with hi/low fans which are typically noisy, and keep guessing when you hit...
