Stayed here for a visit to see my daughter at CU. The location is close to the campus and even walkable. The only downside to my stay is the lack of temperature control for the rooms. It was unseasonably warm while I was in town and the rooms do not have a/c in the winter. There is a sliding glass...

Hi Stacy C, I am happy to hear that you walked across the street onto the University of Colorado campus. In my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States. There are plenty of walking paths. Perhaps the next time you visit, you can borrow one of our free bikes to explore with. Please let...

Booked this last minute on Hotels Tonight as our Airbnb's was not to our liking. First, greeted with a very warm, friendly front desk woman. We were early but our room was ready and she checked us in. She had maps of area and free breakfast coupons for the morning. What a lovely surprise to have such a nice breakfast...

Hi designsbydar, It is interesting. Recently we have had a lot of guests disappointed with AirBnBs. People expect the amenities of a hotel, and are often taken aback by the lack of professionalism in someone's house. We appreciate that you enjoyed both our amenities and professionalism. Please let me know the next time you come through Boulder. I am happy...

Not much to look at from the outside however the rooms I've stayed in have all been remodeled. The only complaint is recently I had a room that connected to 2 other rooms - a King Suite. The walls are a bit thin and I could hear the conversations in either room. Thank goodness for the noisemaker that's part of...

We picked it for the close location, right across the road from the athletic fields. The lobby is nice, the staff friendly, it was a slightly upscale 3 star experience. Breakfast is free with coupons for the limited buffet type offerings. We asked the lady working there for some eggs and got them! Only downside was the large presence of...

I don't get too excited by hotel chains... so long as they are reasonably clean and not too expensive I am fine with them and this place was just that... fine. Decent breakfast in the AM even though you have to go outside to get to the breakfast area... maybe that is changing as it seems like new construction.
