The recent renovation was an excellent move and we got the hotel for a great bargain at $110 a night. If you want a hotel where you can park the car ( for free) and leave it while you are in town this is it! They have embraced Boulder lifestyle with free bicycle loans. Its just 2 miles to pearl...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 March 2017

Really, really nice hotel. It was renovated within the last year and looks fabulous and modern. The room was clean and large: we had two rooms - one with a king bed and the other with 2 doubles. The comforter was plush and warm: "thickest" one compared to any other hotel that I've stayed at. (I tend to get chilly...

I booked this reserrvation because it looked like it was walking distance to Boulder, but because it is along a very high wall next to a highway onramp, the mileage is misleading. The staff was very friendly. The rooms average. The roll away cot was truly the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on - big, wire coils in...

Hi Jennifer V, The bulk of our guests choose the Boulder Inn because of our proximity to the University of Colorado, NOAA, NIST, NCAR, or downtown Boulder. As the closest hotel to the University of Colorado, our guests can walk across the street, or borrow one of our free bikes to explore campus. I'm sorry if you found the location...

I really wish hotels would figure out that box springs are the spawn of Satan. just a mattress on a platform is preferred - box springs make the bed move = one of us has to sleep in the floor. this hotel was not nearly as nice as the photos on the internet. the front entry and conference center are...

Hi carriec800, Your dislike for box-springs is quite unique. Thank you for opening up, and sharing these rare, individual feelings with us. We recently spent 2.6 million dollars renovating the conference center, private dining room, and lobby. Positive guest reaction has been absolutely overwhelming. Our complimentary hot breakfast is available to all hotel guests every morning from 6:30 AM to...

This hotel has one of the best locations if you need to be close to the University. Comfortable rooms, with a mini fridge and microwave. Front desk staff are consistently courteous, even friendly. Breakfast is basic but free so no complaints at all. There's been some construction going on for awhile but it's only during the daytime so shouldn't affect...

When I checked in, the rate was higher than what we agreed to. The clerk couldn't change the rate in the computer or otherwise help. So, after flying and waiting in airports for 14 hours--right there at the check-in desk at 11:00 at night--I had to cancel the second and third days of my reservation, and then rebook through Expedia...

Hi 36halg, I am sorry if your nightly rate was not made clear to you upon check-in. The rate on your original reservation was an amortization of all three nights. When you cancelled nights 2 & 3 and rebooked on a third party, you rebooked at the same rate as the original reservation. Had I realized what you required, I...
