“On a Budget in Boulder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My friend and I stayed here for two nights while we did sight-seeing in Boulder. You can't beat the price and location of this hotel but don't set your expectation to high. The rooms are dark and dated. Our room was clean enough though and I always think that's what really matters. Breakfast could have been better but it's free so I can't complain too much. One problem I did have was when we asked a girl working at the desk what there was to do/see in Boulder she replied, "Ehhh, not much...". Come on! You're in HOSPITALITY - sell the place! And there really was a lot to see and do, Boulder was great!

I am shocked to hear the response from our desk and it has already been addressed. Yes, Boulder is an incredible location and you are absolutely correct - sell it. I can name about 20 things to do off the top of my head. We provide an economical lodging option in great location close to many outdoor activities, shopping, theatre, music and I could go on. Please come again and I can assure you we can provide you many ideas. I apologize for the lack of enthusiasm you were shown. I would like to show you the opposite. Please call anytime and ask for me directly. Thank you for your comments, it is always helpful to hear from our guests.

One night was enough! Wish I could say there were some redeeming qualities about our brief stay. Am having a tough time coming up with any. Suppose I could complement the front desk for being relatively friendly and courteous and being willing to refund/release us from our second night stay. I wish I could say it was clean but that wasn't the case for our room anyway.

Have stayed here regularly for the past 15 years or so. Was originally the Broker Inn, and it was a nice, rustic hotel. My last stay there is my last. Just terrible. Has clearly not been maintained over the past few years. Rooms are dank and somewhat dirty. Breakfast is a joke. Will never stay here again.

I'm sorry to hear you won't be staying with us again. We have had struggles in the couple of years but are in fact on the up side of these struggles. We have initiated a plan to renew the property to what it used to be when it was the "spot" to go in Boulder. If you would be interested in giving us another chance please call me at the hotel directly and I will arrange a future stay to try restore your memories of our property. Thank you for your comments, each is being reviewed by management on a regular basis to improve for our guests.

Was decent and met our needs! We will stay there again, our only complaint was no cold water! Our room was quiet and clean we never heard any noise from outside of our room, The lobby and dining room and bar area is decorated in antique look and atmosphere.

Room Tip: Room 401 was good for us!

Thank you for your stay and compliments. We were experiencing a boiler problem that have been resolved and appreciate your patience with us. I have been explaining to guests that we are fortunate to have an incredible location with a building that has such character, we are looking forward to the next several months in which we plan to renew the property with several changes. Please do come again in your travels.

This hotel is very nice for the price. Clean. Has all the amenities you'd need for a short or week stay- including FREE breakfast. I enjoyed it very much and would stay here again if I visit Boulder soon.

Hello! Let me give you all a heads up in regards to the Rodeway Inn in Boulder! The pictures on the web site must be of only two Suites! The rooms are extremely dirty. The box springs are not covered. Stains, dirt YUCK! Cobwebs on the extremely out dated valances over the beds. Smelly stained carpeting. This Rodway is so very outdated. They should be ashamed! Air conditioners do not work. The Bathroom was so flithy that you needed to clorox it yourself! This place needs Gordon Ramsey to come check it out! HE WOULD DIE!

Please accept our apology. Your comments have been passed on to the GM which is working to correct issues on the property. We anticipate a full deep clean / some remodel work and new bedding in the next few months. If you would be willing to give us another try, in updated surrounding, please call the hotel directly and I will make you a reservation to show you what we've done. Thanks for taking the time to bring your concerns to our attention.

This is an old, rundown hotel. The staff were nice enough but it didn't make up for how bad the rooms are. The mattress of my bed was horrible. You could see that it was not flat but concave. The AC didn't work and it was 90 F in Boulder that day. I'll never stay here again. Just pretty gross.

On behalf of the whole staff we would like to apologize for your unpleasant experience. Within the last month we have added new management and have plans in place for property upgrades and rennovation. The Boulder Broker had an excellent reputation in the past and it is our intention to exceed that in the near future. It is a team effort and will be taking place over the next few months. You stated you would not return but I would like to invite you to contact me directly so I can try to make your situation better. I can be reached at the hotel and truly look forward to trying to correct this for you. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
