“"Old School" in a good way, reasonably priced, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great place with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are clean and quiet, beds are very comfortable and breakfast is basic but good with hot and cold options. Very reasonably priced and in an absolutely wonderful location. We stayed here for 4 nights in Boulder while on a vacation with family members and the location was perfect for our activities. We were only in the room to sleep since we were sightseeing and hiking during the daylight hours. There are hiking trails just blocks from the property and a beautiful park as well. Only a few blocks from good restaurants and shopping too. There is an indoor pool with changing rooms, a washer and dryer and a hot tub for the guests use. The property is small and everything is steps away from your room.

Green Features: Toilets were equipped with flushing buttons for full flush or half flush to save water. At breakfast there were bins for separating the different kinds of trash to recycle. You may request beds to be made but no linens changed and for hanging towels to be left for more use.

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.
