This is a real live old-style motel, with parking right in front of the door to your room. I stayed in the smallest room in the place, and it was big enough for just me - a double bed and small bathroom, and very clean. No air conditioning in my room, though, so if you are the sort that needs a cold room to sleep, you should stay somewhere else on a warm evening. Plenty of fans, though, and the windows open, so I was quite comfortable even though I stayed during the heat wave of August 2012. There was a TV (with cable), and although this was a very simple place, it had all I needed and loads of atmosphere.
Each room has at least one chair outside in front of the room, and some of the larger rooms have a little patio type area that's great for hanging out in the evening. There are picnic tables scattered around, and a big field behind the room where kids can run and play. They do allow dogs.
The staff is terrific - very friendly and helpful. They have a little complimentary breakfast that includes fruit, pastries and oatmeal. They also have coffee available all morning and tea until 11 pm. The staff sleeps right there in the office, so they are always on hand if you have a problem.
A nice city park just across the street is a great place for walking or running. There is also very easy access from here to the Peak to Peak Highway that avoid driving back through Boulder.
