Nice could be better

The location is right in town and has that old world charm and appeal. However, cost = value it doesn't have, and you may feel a bit like you got ripped off. The room was ok, nothing to write home about. It looks alot like granny;s bedroom, with bedspreads that my grandma uses and saw better days, a long time ago. This hotel could do better, alot better. Charging $315 per night should bring you better quality sheets, pillows and inviting bedspreads and linens. Decor needs help. Loved the atmosphere and whole history of the hotel, but, the price per night not worth what you get.

Location is the key for the hotel AND the room

This is a wonderful hotel if you like the ambience of a historic place located in the prime area of Boulder, close to the Pearl Street Mall, etc. Loved the interior of the hotel, the staff was fantastic, restaurants were great and convenient. We only had two complaints, one minor and one major. Minor - no parking to speak of around the hotel so you have to pay $10/day for valet parking. That would have been nice to know beforehand. Our major complaint was that our room (310) was located directly above the second floor "party" room and there were wedding receptions two of the three nights we stayed. The bass was so loud that the floor of our room vibrated and shook the water pipe in the ceiling. Sleep was not to be had until the parties were over. Just be sure if you stay there to ask for a room far away from the party.

Family weekend

Mix-up with other reservation with same last name, but was given free dinner to compensate for a room that was less than what was paid for. Please check 1st and last names when people arrive. Liked that the internet was on throughout the hotel without a password. Liked that hotel was walking distance to most activities.

we have stayed at the Hotel Boulderado our last two visits to Boulder. It is the most convenient location to the areas restaurants, shops and other attractions in Boulder, including Pearl Street. The staff are professional, pleasant, and helpful. The hotel is not only historical but beautiful as well. It is definitely my hotel of choice when visiting Boulder!

Excellent Location

We stayed in the newer part of the hotel in a Queen size room. Can't beat the location. The room was overall fine. I did notice the curtain sconce was dusty and there were scuff marks on the bottom trip from vacuuming. While I prefer a more modern decor, it was very nice.

Boulderado Stay

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Boulderado. The location could not have been better for roaming around town. The staff was always looking to be helpful. The rooms were fine, nothing special but clean and adequate. Given the location I would definitely stay here again! I do wish they had a gym right in the hotel though.

A Visit to grown up kids

The Boulderado is listed in the registry of historic hotels and exudes an old western vibe but with plenty of modern amenities. There is lots of dark wood, an ornate ceiling high over the lobby which is decked out with clusters of comfortable leather seating. Very friendly and helpful staff ready to suggest restaurants or arrange airport transportation. My Dbl Queen room with large bath was clean, comfortable and spacious, soundproof, but not oozing with period flavor. Hotel is convenient to a great variety of downtown shops, galleries and restaurants, no car needed. The Corner Bar was super relaxed place to watch a basketball game. A more upscale bar and "Q's Restaurant" were not sampled. Breakfast room service was quite good.

College Visit and vacation

The Boulderado is perfectly located in Boulder, in the middle of the fantastic Pearl Street area (walking distance) and a short drive from the college campus and the park/mountains. Quaint and historic, with no visible ghosts!
