I typically have a huge problem with motels; doors that open directly to the outdoors just bother me. However this inn is well insulated being in a horseshoe pattern and in a nice area so I didn't feel unsafe at all. The rooms are nice and clean, the bathrooms are beautiful, and the cleaning staff was very accommodating of my... More

Decided on a getaway with my boyfriend during Labor Day weekend. Found good price on ticket to Denver. Spent a few days in Colorado Springs, Rocky Mountain National Park, and a day in Boulder. We had planned on staying at Hyatt Place , however, I inadvertently booked incorrect night and the night we needed was sold out. Not a ton... More

Looks like the property is newly renovated and inside the room is as nice as you can see from the pictures. The bed is comfortable and bedding too. At the end of the day, however, this is a MOTEL! Room is small, and window is facing the hallway, which means you either cannot keep your privacy or you lose the... More

Stayed one night in Boulder and didn't have reservations. Called this property based upon review and they had a room available. Was very close to where we entered Boulder and they quoted a very fair price. Rooms updated and clean. Traveling with a family of three - and double queen room is pretty small, so finding space for three suitcases... More

Near everything you want to do within walking distance. Take a stroll down to Pearl Street. Walk down to a roof top bar on Walnut. Cruise around campus. Very reasonable prices compared to other hotels.

Stayed here for a night in July and it was a stellar experience. We booked a few weeks in advance and I was a little skeptical because the outside looked so-so and the room pics looked quite nice. I think my skepticism was due to the relatively low price of the room in an otherwise surprisingly costly city. Upon check... More

Nice location in Boulder, close to Pearl Street and other activities. We got there pretty early which was good because the parking lot fills up by the end of the day. The exterior of the hotel might be a little rough but the room we stayed in seemed to be recently updated and was very clean. The pool was nice.... More

Great location with a grocery store literally right across the street. The standard room itself was a little small, but overall extremely clean- the bathroom was gigantic though! Employees were extremely friendly and helpful, they were able to accommodate a late check out for me. I brought my dogs and theres a little walking path right behind the hotel.
