Best Western Plus Boulder Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great staff. Provided free breakfast to a local family member so that they could join me for breakfast each morning.

clean bright room with lots of outlets and ways to turn lights on/off individually. good breakfast and really nice place to sit in the lobby in front of a fire place.

This is a convenient and comfortable place to stay for a visit to Boulder. The rooms are quite large. A short drive to city center. A diverse breakfast is provided, but I only give 4 stars because the breakfast eggs on each of 4 days were cold and/or way below standard, and the coffee taste was a little off.

This hotel is in a strange location. It's convenient for being right on 28th St. but it's very noisy because of that. Some of the loud traffic (mostly motorcycles) woke us up at night. The worst part of the stay was that the A/C didn't work. Our room was up to 75 degrees during the day and would only cool down to 70-72 at night. We had maintenance look at it twice (very nice guy) but they couldn't fix it and didn't offer us a room switch. We were there for 4 nights. The mini-fridge is terrible and old. It was not on when we arrived and I had tons a food that needed to be cold. They removed the temperature nob so it was difficult to turn the coldness up enough to get the fridge to kick on. My husband finally got it to budge but it took about 12 hours to cool down. The room size is smaller than a standard hotel room. There is a bright light on every balcony/patio and they stay on all night. That was frustrating because light was coming in at night, even with the curtains shut. The breakfast seemed good, only my husband at it. The hotel is under renovation so maybe once it's done, things will look nicer and work better.

Hotel staff works in the "solution."Hotel staff was so helpful when wifi wasn't working well in the room. Free breakfasts had so many choices that were always filled and available do to the wonderful staff...shout out to Margaret! The construction for expansion of the hotel and our slight concern of the noise was not even an issue since the special windows prevented any sound from coming in. Used the free laundry facilities before packing. Pool was lovely for the grandkids.

The worst hotel experience ever. Nice photos, but this hotel is a "motor inn". Sliding glass doors right on the parking lot. Sits right on a noisy highway. Not very secure and in an area with lots of homeless people. I tried to cancel my booking after seeing the place and the environment, but they wouldn't let me.

Pool is seasonal. I did not see this anywhere in the booking, my choices in hotel are completely dependent on pools with three kids. Hot tub room smelled moldy, breakfast was pretty good, room was clean and comfortable.

Hotel does lots of lil extras for 3 star hotel. Room was large with comfy bed and view of mountains. Staff really nice. We're there on some really bad weather days so was nice room so comfortable because in it alot

Very convenient as we were able to walk to and from the stadium. Check in was easy and the room met our expectations. Would stay here again if in the area.

Great location with mountain views. Very helpful and pleasant staff.

Hotel exceeded expectations. Nice rooms, comfortable bed, fast wifi, free parking. Only complaint was being able to hear people talking / running through halls.

There was some construction going on on the elevator when we were there but I'm sure they are finished with that by now. The location was great and price good.

newly remodeled clean great location would stay here again especially for the price

This was a great choice for an overnight in Boulder. Friendly staff clean rooms. Right off the freeway for easy access.

We visited the Boulder Inn again at Christmas and it was even nicer than last year. Completely remodeled, great service, a clean, well lit and pleasant room, an excellent, full breakfast buffet,and all at a great price. We definitely will return next year when we spend the holidays with our son and his family.

Great location and amazing breakfast :) Right flatirons and flagstaff mountain would definitely stay here again!

Good location, 5 mins walk to restaurant. New facility, room decorated with character. Friendly staff. Good breakfirst. With great value to stay,

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.

There is nothing wrong with the hotel. Its a good base for your time in Boulder, but not really in walking distance to any sites. The rooms are clean and its an added bonus to have free breakfast. If you are looking for something fancy and a hotel room you would want to really hang out in then this might not be the best option for you. But if you are just looking for a place to sleep while you spend your day exploring the city this should be fine.

The location is kind of in a weird spot to get in and out of but the hotel was great! Breakfast was very good and the hotel was very clean!
