Stayed four nights 9/5 to 9/8 in end room #42. Room wasn't fancy but it was everything the three of us needed. One bed in main room and another separate bedroom, sink vanity area, and a full bathroom, fridge, microwave and tv with cable for $75 a night cash. $80 a night if we used credit. The location was perfect... More

Stayed here and the park just below the hotel is excellent and boulder creek has swimming area near by. We rented the bikes that are about a block from the hotel and used them to get around. The location is what suited me best and I would stay again.

My family wanted a hotel close to Pearl Street, on the mountain side, and all of the others were full. We slept well and felt clean when we left, but "suite" and "kitchen" are an overstatement, and the furnishings are pretty basic and old. I think the bedspreads might actually be the same as in the movie Catch and Release,... More

Good location but really dirty. The floor was weirdly wet. There was mold in the bathroom and on the facets. Didn't shower because the bathroom was pretty dirty. Really questioned whether the sheets were changed.

My son and I got the chance to visit Silver Saddle in January. We stayed on three different occasions and stayed in three different rooms. The newest part of the Motel had fine spacious room and an atmosphere much like any midrange motel/hotel. Rooms were clean and service was great. On the other trips we stayed in the cabins. As...

This is the worst place I've ever stayed at. The room was not very clean. The bedspreads looked like they hadn't been washed in months or years. The room had a unique odor to it. The heater didn't work. The picture of the place is misleading, you think you are going to stay in the run down looking cabins but... More

I planned a getaway for my wife and I. We spent one night I Denver before arriving to Silver Saddle. She got pampered there. Upon our arrival her face dropped. The rooms looked very dated. I guess l like back to the 70s. The place was clean, just in need of refurbishing. Nice location. Nice people. For me, I was... More

This Motel is perfect for inexpensive quick get away. it's all we needed to sleep, bathe, and head out again! The cabin was cute, small. It was not very clean and yes it could use a little TLC, but if you are a camper type, appreciate a great location and good bed it's all you need. we usually stay at... More

Holy wow. I truly felt like I was staying at a meth lab motel. The setting is beautiful, but it's really unbelievable how downright disgusting the rooms are. I felt like I was in an episode of 'Breaking Bad.' Thrift store bought furniture was falling apart, bugs on the cracked walls and ceiling, hairs left behind by previous occupants. Amazing... More

We had stayed before, so even though we knew that the motel had seen better days, we booked because of the great location, the affordable rate and the friendly owners. None of those three things, however, made up for the filthy conditions. Blood marks on the walls, actual litter on the floors, dust on every surface were it could lay,... More

Located in front of Boulder Creek at the base of Flagstaff Mountain. Surrounded on three sides by mountains, yet only 12 blocks from downtown Boulder.
