“Can't wait to stay at the Bradley again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2008

We stayed at the Bradley for 4 nights in September, and we loved everything about it. The whole place is beautiful, the staff couldn't be more helpful, and the location was within walking distance to Pearl Street. The breakfast was excellent, as was the daily happy hour (which included homemade snacks). Our room was very comfortable, and had a fireplace and small balcony. Plus, our bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, which was great after a long day of hiking. We also appreciated that there was a computer with free internet access near the lobby. We can't wait to stay at the Bradley again in the near future!

My husband and I stayed at The Bradley for our honeymoon in late September. The inn was beautiful. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. We loved the ambiance. Our 2nd floor room had a small balcony to step out on. We loved being able to open the door in the morning and step out on the deck. Location was great for dining, shopping, and for a nice walk. My husband and I were looking for a relaxing honeymoon and we certainly had one. The inn is quiet and peaceful. The staff is super nice, very helpful and had great suggestions for dining. Breakfast was great as well as all the baked goods set out during the day. We hope to make it back to The Bradley for our anniversary !

We had a truly wonderful stay here in August with two teenage girls.

Rooms were peaceful - we slept great! We had two rooms on the first floor - 1 with a giant king bed, and 1 with a queen bed and jacuzzi bathroom. Beds very comfortable, rooms very clean.

Location is perfect - very short walk to Pearl Street, but on a private and quiet road. Near lots of good restaurants, and we received great food recommendations from the front desk.

Amenities exceeded expectations - a lot of breakfast choices that filled us up and snacks/water/soda/fresh cookies availability throughout the day. Free internet/computer in the business area. When you're traveling, these kind of expenses can add up, so we really appreciated their availability. Plus, there's nothing like coming in from a long day sightseeing to get fresh cookie and iced tea!

The people working at the Bradley were lovely - helpful but not intrusive.

Would highly recommend! Am looking forward to the day I can return to Boulder and the Bradley.

I've stayed here many times, both for business and pleasure trips. It's always wonderful! The inn itself is inviting, large fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating, from a central sitting area to nooks and crannies for private reading. The rooms are comfortable and roomy, with phone, wireless, everything you'd expect businesswise, plus copier/fax/printer readily available downstairs. Breakfasts are a real treat! The location is fabulous--right downtown Boulder--so that you can walk to most everywhere. There's a great selection of excellent restaurants within a block or two. If you like homey and the chance to visit with others, you'll love The Bradley. The staff invites you in and makes you feel right at home the whole time you're here!

AWESOME sums it up. We stayed at the Bradley for 2 nights, had an unexpected late check-in which was dealt with smoothly and without question. Great breakfasts with healthy options such as fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits in addition to quiches and french toast. Top notch linens, Aveda bath products, gas fireplace in the room, clean and beautiful building (built to be a B&B I believe; not a house turned B&B), helpful and polite staff. Everything was marvelous. We will definitely be back.

I spent 6 nights at the Bradley with family. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. This is a great location within walking distance to galleries, restaurants and shopping. The biz center with computer, fax and privacy was much appreciated. The inn offers a bountiful and flavorful breakfast and maintains sweet treats with coffee, tea, water and soda throughout the day. They offered wine and beer with appetizers every evening. Decorating is warm and inviting. Lounge area has a fireplace and comfy sofas. A great inn. We are planning our next stay.

This was by far the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. Perfect location in the heart of Boulder city, ideal for tourists as all the major shops, bars & restaurants are within a couple of blocks. The young staff were super-friendly and went out of their way to help with tour arrangements . The decor is amazing. The entrance hall gives way to a large room complete with focal fire hearth and sofas. There's also a little office with PC, printer, fax machine, scanner, etc for guest use. Bedrooms were so cozy and the little wooden cats sleeping on our pillows when we arrived was the nicest touch! Homebaked muffins, quiches and breads were on offer for breakfast and the complementary cookies & milk at bedtime, coffe and homebaked cakes throughout the day helped give a real home-from-home feel. I would love to return here someday & highly recommend it to anyone, no matter what the nature of their stay.

  • Liked — Amazing decor and country feel
  • Disliked — No lift, no pool, maybe not so child friendly
