I stayed here 5 nights while helping my son continue with the clean up from the 9/11 flood of his home. The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms clean, furnishings up to date, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker (with pretty good coffee for hotel coffee), never heard any sounds from surrounding rooms. The morning breakfast, however, was processed, heated up... More

This will not be at the top of your list for superb places to stay but I can keep agree with the other recent reviews. The staff was very polite, rooms were furnished nicely. My bathroom needed a little extra cleaning though. TV in exercise room wouldn't receive a signal. Location is convenient.

I can only join the others reviews. This is nice hotel, pretty convenient in most of the aspects. The staff is great - polite, friendly and helpful. Breakfasts indeed need major improvement - hardly found something to eat, the food is not too healthy though. The location is outside of downtown but not too distant as Boulder generally is not...

This hotel was modern, quiet and comfortable. I liked that it was off the beaten path and away from the main downtown area. Breakfast was not great. The service was fine, not stellar, but certainly not subpar.

Thank you for your review. We are located in northern part of Boulder, right at the base of the Foothill Mountains. We are located next to several trails such as the Wonderland Lake path, which is located behind the hotel. Although we are a little 'off the beaten path' we are still able to provide another side of the true... More

The hotel was friendly and clean. The quality of the room was good too. It just lacked that something. It was a nice touch for the staff to provide guests with popcorn and cookies but if you want some atmosphere stay closer to the town. The breakfast was average. The biggest turn off was the plastic plates, bowls and utensils.... More

The rooms were clean & comfortable. The staff was friendly & helpful. there were homemade cookies each evening! The continental breakfast was excellent with a staff member replenishing items as they got low. There were quite a few tables for dining.
