“Solid hotel on outskirts of Boulder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

While on the outskirts of Boulder, this hotel is very convenient to the "downtown" area of Boulder and the college campus. Set against the hills, the hotel is located near a homeless shelter and a gentlemen's club. Which was a bit disconcerting initially, but did not seem to have an impact once on the property.

Room Tip: Higher floor seemed to be quieter.

Thank you for your review and for choosing the Holiday Inn Express for you lodging needs. We are located in the Northern part of Boulder or 'NoBo' which is rapidly changing and growing. In NoBo one of the many shops located nearby is the family friendly Gateway Fun Center, the only Mini Golf and Go-Kart location in all of Boulder. We expect the area to continue to grow and change and hopefully by your next stay there will be another new and exciting store in our neighborhood. Thanks for your review and we look forward to your next visit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I spent two nights here and enjoyed my stay. My room was facing east towards the main road by the hotel, but there was no noise from outside or inside the hotel. The room was a good size, not too large and not too small. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. There was a small kitchenette with a microwave and small fridge and a coffee maker. The large flat panel TV had many, many channels to choose from. The front desk staff were very friendly, as was the breakfast staff. I enjoyed the breakfast - the typical HI Express breakfast with a pancake machine, hot cinnamon rolls, eggs, bacon, cereal and more.

The only potential downside for some guests might be the location, as the hotel is located on the northern tip of Boulder. I usually stay in the southern part of Boulder, so this was a change for me. But the drive to Pearl Street Mall or the University is still no more than ten minutes or so and it is an easy drive. There are funky shops and cafes and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, so it's not like you are isolated in the wilderness.

Thanks for your positive review of the Holiday Inn Express. We always love to hear back from our guests.

Yes we are located in the northern end of Boulder, or NoBo, which allows our guests the possibilities of unique experiences specific to our location.

For example, just steps behind our hotel is the Wonderland lake hiking trail or if you are interested in some of the local flavor, we are the only hotel located within walking distance of a local winery or a local brewery.

Thank you again for you review and we look forward to your next visit.

We booked 2 days ahead and didn't have much choice - it was back to college time. This north Boulder hotel was unexpectedly very nice. Nothing unusual on the outside, but the staff were exceptional. The front desk happily let us check out late to get in one more hike. The breakfast room attendant kept the area well stocked and spotless. She had her hands full with 50+ Army soldiers who had spent the night. They even hosted a free by-the-pool barbecue (especially for the soldiers, but everyone was welcome - did those young men enjoy that!). they baked 2nd and 3rd batches of their promised 7:00 PM cookies and the 4:00 PM popcorn was a nice touch, too.

The bed was really comfortable - nice and firm, fresh, crisp sheets and pillows marked "firm" and "soft". the bathroom was spotless with very nice, thick towels. The business center is in a living room area that faces east and has a fireplace - like being at home, not in some dark corner.

We were right off the lobby on the first floor, but it was quiet. Right on Broadway, it's an easy, short drive to downtown. Just watch out for the ever present bike riders in Boulder!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains (over half the hotel).

Great location for the sports minded visitor. Biking, hiking, running all out your front door. Nice sized room, very clean and a good firm mattress. 10 minutes to downtown and the Pearl Street Mall. Free tasty breakfast.

We booked through Priceline so had no idea what Hotel we would stay in and this was a pleasant surprise. The staff was very friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the location with great restaurants close by. Estes Park was only a 50 minutes drive away :)

Stayed here one night before heading to the Rocky Mountain National Park the next day. Excellent hotel. Check in was quick, professional, and friendly. The Hotel property is VERY nicely kept and the room was clean and spacious. Room was set up with a kitchenette with spacious mini-fridge, sink, and microwave. Lots of TV channels, and a simple to use good AC system. Location is on the edge of town, but not far from lots of the standard chain restaurants and stores. Great room, nicely kept property and great service adds up an excellent choice for me.

Hi,
We stayed 7/20 to 7/23/12 and the Customer Service was outstanding. Rooms newly renovated and very nice, like a Holiday Inn express I recently stayed at in Lakeland, FL. Breakfast was also very good and included many items that many other chains do not have. Will stay here again on our return trips to Boulder, Co.

Room Tip: 2nd Floor room at end of hall very quiet.

Thank you for your review. We pride ourselves our service and our breakfast amenities. I've heard our pancake machine referred to as a 'Willy Wonka creation'. It's a new addition to our breakfast and were excited to know that it is well received.

Thanks again, and we look forward to your next stay.
