Although undergoing renovations to the conference space the hotel was perfect. The rooms are new and clean, the staff was awesome: the reception staff and the great lady running the breakfast room. The breakfast had enough extras to make it above average (actual croissants and regular as well as Greek yogurt!) and the room is nice.

When booking directly with the hotel they failed to mention that construction was going on next door. The sound was annoying. The Internet was so slow I reverted back to my 3G option. The shower design in our room was poor. The greeting staff when we arrived were marginal. Pros: The bed was comfortable and the breakfast offered a little... More

I spent 3 nights over July 4th weekend. When I saw the outside of the place I was a little disappointed as it is only 2 stories and there was some construction next door. However, my disappointment quickly turned to "don't judge a hotel by the outside" experience. The room had a very comfortable king size bed with a super... More

A little run down. Pool was in poor condition and not clean. They need to add restrooms to pool area. Fitness center location is not convenient or not available. Air conditioning in room did not work well.

I'm a regulator visitor to this hotel, and I love it. The staff are well-trained, friendly and helpful. On this trip, I really appreciated the way Jon offered to move me to my favorite room after the first night, and took care of moving my stuff while I was out during the day. The decor is lovely. I love the... More

I understand that it is going through a construction and I do not mind that, but everything else does not need to fall apart. No bath towels were provided and the AC leaked all night. Need to get some QA

Very good, helpful staff; good breakfast spread. Lots of construction in the property and next to it; very dusty. Always Stale & Musty smell from carpets, even though it was dry summer. Convenient, but hard to say I would repeat.

The interior renovation, some of which included tripling the size of the lobby; converting a restaurant space to our guest exclusive breakfast room; resurfacing the pool... More

I stayed as part of a small tour group. The hotel staff were well prepared for our arrival so checkin was simple. My room was great. Nice pool and spa and the hotel is conveniently located to major roads. To top it off the hotel serves an excellent breakfast and is well served by restaurants within walking distance.

This hotel is what you expect with brand name Best Western, all is budget except the price. Location is convenient to campus but that is the only positive on the location. Rooms have recently been remodeled, exterior screams for a remodel as well. I booked based on prior reviews and was disappointed. If you really need to stay near campus... More

BoulderInn, Director of Sales at BEST WESTERN PLUS Boulder Inn, responded to this review

Hi yreme, It sounds as though the price you paid was the driving force behind your negative feelings. During the summer months, lodging in central Boulder is at a premium. For budget oriented prices, I recommend staying 10-20 miles outside of town. There are many fine hotels to choose from, and all that the town has to offer can be... More

This was an older Hotel but well maintained, staff was courteous and very helpful when called upon, decent breakfast, and clean rooms, would stay here again without question. It is also within walking distance of Colorado University.

Hi Randall C, We really appreciate your kind, positive words. It sounds as though you were visiting the University of Colorado across the street. This is one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States. CU-Boulder professors have been awarded five Nobel prizes, four in physics and one in chemistry. I love spending time across the street on campus.... More
