Arriving here to stay a few nights prior to our daughter attend the Fall Semester at CU Boulder was pleasant. The rooms are ample size but we needed a larger room for the four of us (two parents, college freshman and younger brother). We traveled all over Asia last year so we work well together in small spaces but the room was surely large enough to accommodate us all. Two full beds (not queen). The pillows were pretty firm, a bit lumpy but workable. The beds were not the firmest but the remodel may included new beds which would be nice. The shower was a stall- no tub with plenty of towels. Decor was older but clean. The best part was location. Across the street was a whole foods-esque place called Alfafas. This was key as the breakfast provided here was ample but not grand. Oatmeal and Oj are the best choices for the hotel.
The pool was great and we were the only ones in it. End of August was like bath water as the temp soared above 80 degrees. They will provide bikes free of charge for daytime roaming- nice extra.
If you're looking for location, this hotel is prime- just three blocks from Pearl Street, the mecca of restaurants, street performers, etc.. It is the heart of Boulder. The school is just south of the hotel and the hill is only three blocks to the south as well.
A good choice for those on a budget.
