“Comfortable rooms but dated building, loud events”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

When I first viewed the photos of this hotel I was expecting a nice experience. The Hotel is careful to only show you the renovated parts of the hotel. Upon pulling up we looked at each other and said,"this can't the be right place." The exterior is extremely dated and on the day we arrived 2/3rd of the parking lot was closed off for resurfacing. Once inside we checked in with the helpful staff in the renovated lobby, then began the long walk to the wing that we were in. (This hotel has 3 wings that are all sort of separated from each other while being under the same roof. If you are staying with a large group this can be problematic when everyone is scattered.) we found the hallways have wallpaper peeling off the walls which made us a little nervous about the rooms. Fortunately the rooms have been redone and are fairly nice and quite comfortable. This location has a nice pool including a large separate lap pool which we utilized.
The Nola cafe is average hotel diner food, nothing special.

If you enjoy walks the hotel is right on the creek path that you can take into the shopping area of town and is really close to Safeway and another shopping center.

One word of warning, If you like it quiet this may not be the place for you. In the 4 days we were there, there was an event in the courtyard 3 of those days that was quite loud. The windows provided no refuge from the music of the wedding parties and music festival.

We enjoyed the proximity to the Boulder Creek Path, but felt a bit like the hotel had stopped in time about 20 years ago. The rooms were clean enough, but outdated. The pools were fantastic. Our kids had fun using both the indoor and outdoor pools. Staff were very friendly. Our rate included the buffet breakfast was a great way to start our day. The elevators were broken on our way out and we had to carry all of our luggage down three flights of stairs. We were able to walk from the hotel down the path and into downtown. That was the best part of the location.

Thank you for your feedback during your stay at the Millennium Harvest House, Boulder during your recent visit. We hope that your stay was pleasant and that our accommodations and services were acceptable to you.

yes, you are correct that our elevators in the wing you occupied were down due to the volume of business the hotel had during the week of your stay. It has been repaired since. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please know we value you as a guest and hope to see you lodge with us again in the near future.

We stayed over a weekend and found the hotel clean but pretty average on a number of aspects. The room was clean and there were no issues there however charging $5 for a bottle of water is a bit steep. The pool area was ok although it needs to be kept cleaner as there was a lot of trash lying around the pool area. Breakfast was ok but the buffet choice was limited, with only the usual scrambled egg, little boxes of cereal, bacon, sausage, chipped potatoes.

We were given free Internet when we booked in but they charged it on the bill. We challenged it and they removed it from the bill but we had to argue the point as the desk clerk gave the impression, in that slightly superior attitude, that it was unusual not to be charged - $10 a night again is steep and it was not very fast.

They claim to be a full service hotel and they have a lot of staff but in overall quality and value for money terms they fall short of the mark.

This would not be our first choice for the area on a return visit and I think they need to fundamentally look at what they offer as hoteliers. We've stayed in inferior hotels but not at $160 a night plus with extras being added on.

Upon arrival the lobby seemed high class, we were put in the sports wing and as you contined it became very outdated and claustrophobic hallways. The rooms were VERY dated and not up to par with what was expected from the price. The bathrooms were stained NO REFRIGORATOR,and an old tv. On the 4th of July there was a party so parking was VERY hard to come by. Upon departure the elevator broke down. The restaurant was super slow we left because a waiter/waitress never came, and the front desk guy was on the phone and wouldn't assist us. Terrible dont bother staying here.

Five years ago my wife and I stayed at this hotel for several nights. At that time the hotel was clean, well maintained and managed. Hence, we elected to return to the hotel while attending a conference. Unfortunately, since our last visit the hotel has deteriorated significantly. Though our room was clean and the bed was comfortable, the toilet valve leaked making it run continuously. More generally, the hotel is in need of rehabilitation of furniture in all areas of the hotel; the outdoor gardens and landscape need major renovation; the hotel is understaffed making service difficult for employees ;staff are not well trained so that there is an atmosphere of employee dissatisfaction. For example, the front desk clerk barely greeted me on check in, and she then proceeded to rapidly mumble barely understandable instructions about where to park my car and how to find my room. In the process of trying to locate my room I discovered that both elevators were inoperable. To add insult to injury, before checking out one of our friends, who was also staying at the hotel, was informed that because the hotel was now full, the rate on her room was going up $30/night more. Last, the place was overrun with members of athletic teams who partied until the early hours of the morning.

In short, for the rate charged, we could have easily found a better hotel, and we shall not stay at this hotel again unit it is rehabilitated and under new management. We can do better.

You are correct that both elevators were inoperable for a couple of day during your stay.For this we are truly sorry!

We stayed at this hotel 4 years ago and loved it. The location is great to the Boulder Creek bike path with convenient bike rental within walking distance. Four years ago, this hotel was a bustling and fairly upscale place, and we decided to stay here with our family again on this trip. I really wish I had checked the reviews! The price is still high, and this time it does not seem worth it. The whole hotel is in need of updating (the fact that outside sign is not completely lit up at night should have clued us in). We got placed in the "Sporting Wing", which seems slightly less nice than the rest of the hotel (for the same price!), but after touring all of the hotel, everything looks fairly dilapidated. The rooms are clean. Most of the staff is nice (but the hotel appears to be understaffed). The pool is still impressive.

Room Tip: Don't stay in Sporting Wing

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. For the most part, everything was fine. There were only a few things to note. The rooms were nice and clean. They triple sheet their beds, which for me is always a make or break kind of thing when choosing hotel. (I refuse to stay at hotels that use bed spreads). However, they really need to renovate the hallways! Seriously, it looks like the white paint is starting to crack off the walls, especially towards the back of the hall on the first floor. The lobby is nice. The beds were comfortable for me, although the two people I was traveling with said the beds were too hard. ( I personally like a hard bed, so I was happy).

The televisions seriously need an update. They still have those box televisions; no flat screens. Management, if you're reading this: people who pay over $120 for a room expect a decent television. The guide software is highly outdated. The channel names when cable surfing stills shows "COURTV". Court TV has been gone for over 7 years. The staff is exceptionally friendly. Their housekeeping department was very accomodating when we asked for an extra fold-up bed, extra sheets, duvets and pillows. No free wifi was a little bit disconcerting for the price we paid for the hotel.

Overall, like I said, I enjoyed staying at this hotel, although for almost $200 a night, I expected a little more. Don't get me wrong, this place is nice. I'd say overall the experience was on par with Hampton Inn in terms of service and accomodations.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor facing the backyard area. There is a sliding screen door at opens...
