Very convenient location near CU Boulder. Very friendly and helpful staff. Stephanie at the front desk armed us with several local maps to help us find the CU museums as well as local restaurants. Beautiful room, comfortable bed, and all well-maintained. Very quiet location. Breakfast was underwhelming - hard boiled eggs are a disconcerting sight in the morning. Breakfast items...

Hi Jill J, I love the title of your review: “Comfortable, Clean and Convenient.” This could be our new tagline. Your comfort is our primary goal. Cleanliness is also very much a top priority, and the hotel’s location is very convenient for everything in town; particularly the University of Colorado. “Comfortable, Clean and Convenient.” I like it a lot. Please...

This was my second stay at this Best Western. The hotel is located walking distance to the University and a quick drive to Pearl Street and the 26th Street shopping area. The hotel has a great updated lobby (sitting area including a fireplace) and very nice sitting area outside near the pool (with an awesome firepit). The rooms are comfortable...

My dog and I stayed one night. My dog had never had a flea on her since I adopted her in March. As I was getting things ready leave, I found 2 fleas on my dog. I was so devastated. I went to the front desk after I had taken all my stuff out and asked how often they bomb...

Hi Chad R, We took your accusation very seriously and hired a national control service to provide a complete inspection of your hotel room. This trained professional found absolutely nothing. The inspection cost the hotel $160. A copy of the full report will be mailed to you on Monday morning. Our hotel only accepts pets in specific rooms. These rooms...

Wow, what a nice surprise when we checked in here. I guess we had lowered expectations since this is an older hotel. Very chic with a nice remodel job. Boulder is so pretty this time of year and the Best Western made it that much more enjoyable!

Nice and clean with good attention to detail. Great breakfast buffet was included and the tasty entrée options varied daily. Relaxed atmosphere, convenient location, and reasonable pricing. We loved it.

The room was very comfortable and view was wonderful. The staff could not have been more helpful. I was in Boulder for a class for 5 days and the accomodations were perfect. Our class was held in one of the conference rooms which was also very nice.

We were pleased with our recent stay at this hotel. You can tell it is an older property, but they have done a good job keeping it updated. We had a great view of the mountains. We were there for 2 nights and it was quiet. A little hard to find, but GPS gets you there.

Wow. I was expecting "roach motel" and I got Frontgate poolside furniture, firepits, gorgeous amenities, awesome breakfast (not just bagels to toast...) and the staff was tremendously friendly. It was very conveniently located on the freeway but also a view of the mountains in the morning. Stunning.
