Decent deal - room had funny smell, heater noisy

Staff was very helpful. Strange smell like old tobacco smoke covered up with fragrance, but an obvious effort to provide a clean room. Heater is noisy. Bed was quite comfortable. Quality TV that actually worked right with true digital picture.

Good place if all you need is affordable sleep

The hotel has been remodeled, not 100% as you can still see some of the age. The walls are thin and the blinds do not close all of they way. I could hear easily a conversation a person in the room next door was having for hours. There are some trade-offs for the cheaper price. I personally wish i had paid $20 more for somewhere else.

Decent Best Western

This is a mid-tier Best Western with basic amenities. It is close to U of CO, so there is many food/entertainment options close by. The room was standard, but the office chair for the desk was very uncomfortable and below standards for a hotel like this.

There is a walking/bike route near hotel. Pearl street mall is approx a 45 minute walk. Pearl Street Mall is worth the trip. BJ's pub was an excellent place to eat. I would definitely go there again.

Better than expected

This hotel is nowhere near the University (or downtown), and is in fact very hard to find. The street address sent me and my GPS to a spot several blocks down the road. Turns out the hotel is in fact back on the access road several blocks. You could easily miss it. And then the entrance nearest to the sign doesn't go to the lobby. I had to park and walk around the front of the building to the lobby. Outdated furnishings (box TV...no movie channels, but tons of cable) but bathroom was somewhat updated. Unexpected amenities: slippers. And brkfst was good: fruit and scrambled eggs and pastries not in a bag. Not well-soundproofed: you can hear highway traffic, and forget sleeping thru garbage pick-up. But you can leave fan in bathroom on. Remote control for TV didn't didn't always work to turn TV on (but channel changer part always worked). Lots of pillows.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Nothing around the hotel as far as dining, except for a few chains. Go into the downtown area. We found a new=ish "tequila bar" called Tahona with REALLY great food. (The new tequila craze is still lost on me, though. Their homemade fruit-infused tequilas still taste like tequila to me!)

Fine place, rooms with no view

A little sad, looking out on a parking lot. But other than that, it was all there. The staff was very friendly and competent. I shopped on a budget for this one, and wasn't disappointed. Nice breakfast selections.

One night stay with late arrival

The Boulder Inn was quite clean and comfortable. I especially liked the shower, and the clean towels. The only thing could be better was that centrol air was kind of loud. The staff was very friendly. I arrived at about 2 am, was very warmly received by the registration desk staff. I felt safe in and around the hotel area. Overall, for a three star hotel, it was good!
