“What I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

It's a motel not the Ritz. It was exactly the sort of place I expected to stop in on an American road trip and it was excellent. The rooms were of a decent size and they were pleasant and clean. I also parked outside our room further complementing our adventure into this wonderful state.

We stayed here for 2 nights, check in was smooth and straightforward, the room was clean and pleasant, perhaps a little tired looking though. There was also a lack of natural light coming into the room. Breakfast was buffet style and fairly basic, and not particularly good. Overall for Boulder it was reasonable and offered quite good value for money.

For a quick stopover in Boulder, this hotel worked well. It is located a short walk to the Pearl Street mall, so finding dinner was pretty easy. The hotel has been renovated but is still a pretty basic motel and the bathroom was tiny (just shower and toilet; sink outside). Though breakfast is included, it was somewhat pricey considering it was nothing amazing.

I stayed here for three nights. My room was large and very well appointed. I liked that the bathroom/shower area was off to the side, separate from the sleeping area. It was a nice touch to have all soaps/shampoos/gels in liquid form as opposed to bars. The double sink was a bonus. The beds (queen size) were very comfortable and the sitting area/desk was nice as we didn't have to sit on our beds. My only (minor) complaint is that there seems to be an issue with soundproofing (or lack thereof) as I heard every step my neighbors made on the floor above me. The main building was most charming. The breakfast was great - pancake machine, fresh fruits, eggs, yogurts, cheeses, cereals, coffee, tea, juice - served in a pleasant area of the main building. At 4pm there were fresh baked cookies! We always managed to stop in for these treats -a very nice touch. The front desk staff was very friendly and most professional, especially Katie who was always there with a smile and willing to chat. The location was excellent - we never had to use our car for the three days we were here. We walked to Pearl Street, the Flatirons, the CU campus and just about everywhere else in Boulder. The Boulder Creek Path is about 75 meters behind the hotel which is perfect. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Boulder.

Room Tip: Ask for a top (second) floor room as the first floor rooms can get a little noisy.

Green Features: Kudos for eliminating the bar soaps and the disposable bottles of shampoo/conditioner/gels and replacing them with liquid pumps.

The rooms are nice. I would not recommend using the hot tub of pool. Gross does not describe it. We loved the cookies. If they clean up the pool I would stay here again or just avoid it. This is located close to the university.

We stayed at this hotel because we were going to a concert at the Fox Theater. The hotel is located on a side street and it was about a 20 minute walk to the Fox Theater. The room and bed was comfortable with a door and window that opens to the outside. The bathroom is a little small, but it was fine for a quick shower. The reception was quick and very friendly. It was nice to walk not only to the venue, but restaurants and bars. It had a nice size parking lot that we parked right in front of our room. We only had coffee in the morning, so we can't comment on the breakfast. Would definitely stay here again when we are in town for a Fox Theater concert.

This "hotel" is overpriced for what you get. We stayed two nights, the room was on the second floor in the corner (cannot remember the number) it was spacious but it was very dark needed more windows. Given the size of the room the bathroom was tiny with a toilet and shower. The sink located outside in the living area. The room also smelt musty. It was quiet though never heard a thing. The breakfast was poor, not much choice at all. Did not use the pool area so cannot comment. The location was good, walking distance to bars and restaurants. The staff were friendly enough. Overall probably would not stay here again would stay further out of town and get a cab which would probably still work out cheaper than what you pay here and you would get a nicer hotel.
