“Group Lodging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

This was my 6th stay over the past 20 years and I will go back again hopefully next year. I've always gone with a Softball group and it's perfect for families. One suggestion to the Inn, Spruce up the upstairs kitchen with a backsplash and some paint it's a great room to cook for a group (which we did twice) or play games. Also have the help go in there daily and empty the trash and make sure there are clean towels and dishsoap. If there had been a broom and dustpan I would've swept. Love the washers and dryers and that you provide change. Morning breakfast could also be better but I bought my own and cooked so I only went to the breakfast room once.

Room Tip: Bed was broken in room 208.

I stayed here for a week with a family of 4 earlier this month. The location is in a quiet residential neighborhood with a park in the back utilized by the neighborhood and Twin Lakes is a short walk down the street with great walking trails which was nice. This is also just minutes away from the Celestial Seasonings Factory. There is a small shopping center about 5 min from the location which has a supermarket and a few resteraunts which proved to be very convenient to stock up the mini fridge in the room to save on food costs. The room however only has a microwave and fridge so some of your cooking choices are limited as the upstairs kitchen was off limits to guests during my stay due to the usage by the Japanese running club. Yes the rooms are oddly arranged, the carpet is ready for replacement and the room does not get cleaned during the visit but this was a great value and the room itself was clean upon arrival, offered enough space for everyone over the span of a week including closets and drawers so that all of your stuff can be out of the way and in a nice neighborhood. Due to the fact the room doesn't get cleaned I had to do dishes and make beds on my vacation but my job as mom never gets a vacation when the kids are with me and we are on a budget. Clean towels are available to you at any time in the guest laundry downstairs. The breakfast choices are good for kids since there are multiple cereal options, fruit, yogurts, bagels, etc but it does get monotonous after a week however, again for budget concious people you deal with it. This was perfect for our family since we were sightseeing in both Boulder and Estes Park so it saved us an extra 15 min drive to get to Estes since the hotel is more outside of town.

Just recently stayed here in 2014 after a horrible stay in 2002 - it was under different ownership then. The new owners care and take pride in their place and WOW - what a difference it makes!
The beds are super comfortable, clean, fresh paint, free computers for the guest to use, mini kitchens in the rooms with a complimentary breakfast every AM for guests. They now have a hot tub, nice laundry area, pet friendly, nice views of a park outside the window and a trail to the Twin Lakes right up the block for walking. Mr. Neal is a great innkeeper and I felt safe and welcome.
Quiet neighborhood and I will stay here again when I go to Boulder again next year for another workshop. Prices are very reasonable for all you get!

Having never stayed here before and relying in the past on the big name hotels when visiting Boulder, we weren't sure what to expect. But, the price was right and reviews were good...it's a hidden treasure and as you drive in, it's residential and you don't expect a hotel to be where it is...but it's great for kids and pets, with a park and gazebo and lawn. The staff was great, and though it needs some updating, it was very comfortable, the rooms large and we'll definitely go back to visit this hidden treasure.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a pet, make sure you ask for their pet friendly rooms. We didn't reali...

I recently stayed at this property for a race I was doing at the Reservoir and it was exactly what I needed. It was very close to the race location, quiet, clean and had a kitchenette which was a great addition.

The staff here are also very helpful and flexible with late check outs if required. They were very nice and made the checking in and out process very easy and seamless.

Overall I would recommend this property if you are looking for something that is out of central Boulder, especially if you are looking for a place to stay before an event at Boulder Reservoir.

Room Tip: Would depend on the number of people you have but I had the double queen room and it was pretty big...

I was here for Bolder Boulder weekend. The hotel is in a nice quiet residential neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Boulder. It had everything we were looking for. Fridge, microwave, hot tub, laundry, and continental breakfast. Comfortable beds and a pull out couch. The only negative things I have are 1) the check in process was a bit unsafe. there in an envelope with your room key and a form for you to sign and leave on the unattended desk. There isn't any personal information on it besides your name and room number but still. It made me a bit uncomfortable. 2) there wasn't a person on duty at the front desk. I had questions about breakfast times the morning of the run and no one was there to answer them. There was however a phone number to call in case of emergencies. 3) Knowing the Run was that weekend, breakfast was still not provided at an earlier time for that particular day. Besides that, overall great stay and will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Boulder.

Room Tip: No elevator at this hotel so pick a 1st floor room if you have issues.
