“Bedding down in Boulder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The Residence Inn offered a very spacious room with a kitchen. The grounds were clean and well-manicured. I enjoyed the complimentary bicycles that were available. Seems like everyone in Boulder goes everywhere on a bike. The continental breakfast was adequate, not great. A very nice 4 day stay. One problem: The hotel is near railroad tracks and a train goes by at 2-3am with its whistle blasting.

Room Tip: Get a room as far away from the rr tracks as possible.

great value -two bedroom units have loft for second bedroom--about 5-10 minutes by car from university of colorado and 4 minutes to Pearl street-helpful front desk-only drawback is nearby railroad and train whistles-do not get a unit near entrance,stay toward rear of property--great free breakfast includes self made waffles

Room Tip: get room toward rear away from railroad

I appreciate your feedback. I wish I could tell you that we had the train schedule down and could predict at what time and which nights it came by, but I have never been able to obtain one. I will tell you that it is rhandom and not every night, though. Thanks for your kind words about our breakfast buffet and our convenient location to just about everywhere you need to be in Boulder. We hope to welcome you back on your next trip to Boulder!

Sincerely,
Cathy Rothweiler

I have stayed at this hotel about 5 times and have really enjoyed the experience. Being an extended stay type of hotel each room has a fully fitted kitchen with full sized appliances. The normal studio type rooms are great for a single person or a couple, with the suite type rooms excellent for families. The beds are up to the Marriott standard and are very comfortable.
This hotel has a "happy hour" each even where one can get snacks and also a light meal. Breakfast is also served each morning and is remarkably respectable.
Staff are extremely helpful and will go out of their way to ensure you have a good stay.
There is plenty of parking as this hotel is of the "Apartment" style so one is able to park outside your room.
There is a railroad nearby with a fair amount of traffic. Sometimes the noise from the horns from the locomotives may wake you, but one seems to get used to it pretty quick......

Overall a good family hotel.

Thank you for your ringing endorsement for both individuals and families wanting more of the modern conveniences of a full kitchen and complimentary breakfast and happy hour. Once you have discovered Resdince Inn's as a family, you just cannot imagine staying in a traditional hotel again. With over 850 square feet, our Penthouse suites have plenty of space to spread out and relax in. There are two separate bathrooms that are a must if you have teen agers. Our new beds feature a king bed downstairs, queen bed upstairs, and sofa bed in the living room. With three flat screen TV's everyone gets to watch their favorite shows and, the full kitchen is perfect for everything from popping popcorn in the microwave to keeping cold drinnks in the refrigerator. A great value indeed and all the room necessary to give everyone some space of their own. Thank you for being a loyal customer and I hope you will have an opportunity to visit us again, and often!

Sincerely,
Cathy Rothweiler

Three of us enjoyed a girls weekend, and stayed at this location. It's a little bit off the beaten track...but Boulder is a small enough town, that it wasn't an issue. We thought the breakfast was really good (a step up from the standard free breakfasts) and the cookies were an extra bonus. We wished we would of enjoyed the sitting in the gas fire place area outside by the pool,or riding the complimentary bikes, but there wasn't enough time. It proved to be a very central location for our trips to Pearl Street and our day in Estes Park. I would definitely stay there again!

I'm so happy to hear that we helped to make your Girls Weekend a success. Those precious times with friends are a real treasure! Somehow freshly chocolate chip cookies are the perfect ending to a day out in Boulder or at Rocky Mountain National Park. Thanks for sharing your experience and I hope you will come back next Spring or Summer and enjoy time time by the pool, firepit or new built in BBQ area.

Thanks for beingour guest!

The room was clean and easy layout. The front desk was nice enough to keep us off the main drag so it would be a quieter night's sleep. Bed were comfortable but a bit of a drive from the area in Boulder you'd want to visit. About 10 min drive from Pearl Street....definitely in suburbia

Not only do we take great pride in our service focused staff, but perfecting the art of a perfectly baked chocolate chip cookie has developed into a friendly competition amongst our team. You will find consistancy of quality in our service, cleanliness, accommodations...and cookies! Look forward to seeing you on your next cross country adventure.

Safe Travels!

Stayed here one night on a cross country trip. Staff was extremely friendly, gym was decently equipped and yeah, they have free cookies. At least they did when we visited. We had a studio with a kitchen, bath and fireplace. All lovely, the bed was comfortable and best of all, the cat got to run around a bit. Some pet friendly hotels you can tell there have been animals there before, but not here. Everything was spotless. Not a walkable location really, but other than that it was perfect.

We had a great stay at the Boulder Residence Inn. The front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and it always smelled of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. We had reserved a king studio, but were upgraded to the loft style 2 bedroom/2 bath, which was incredibly convenient for our family. We had our baby upstairs and were able to relax downstairs in the king size bed! The unit was very clean and updated. The breakfasts were quite good too.

We celebrated our anniversary while there, and our parents had chocolate covered strawberries sent to us. Apparently, my mother in law called, spoke with the manager, Jackie, and told her it was our anniversary and asked if she had any ideas of something special they could do for us. Jackie said, "Oh...if it's their anniversary.....the hotel wants to do something special for them. We will give them a bottle of wine and some Colorado candies." They discussed options and Jackie said "when you decide what you want to do for them...call me back and I'll make sure it all gets handled right." So when she called back and told Jackie that she ordered the strawberries, Jackie said she would make sure they got refrigerated. Then Jackie even called my mother in law to tell her they arrived and that they got put into our fridge. When we came back to our room that evening, there was a big note on the table telling us to check our fridge, along with a bottle of wine and nice chocolates from the hotel.

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Jackie and the rest of the Residence Inn staff!
