Our overnight stay was O.K. but their full breakfast was excellent. The room was clean and our Wi-Fi worked after a little help from the desk clerk. We were disappointed in the area of the town, especially at night and it was also difficult to find when returning later that night with their small sign. Thankfully our car had GPS...

Thank you for taking time to review our property. We always love hearing for our guests. The Holiday Inn Express Boulder is priced competitively within our market, however you can usually find a deal online. The front desk can also assist in locating a discount if available. I must say, I was surprised to read that we were hard to...

For the price and in comparison to the rest of Boulder this was a good value. The hotel is a little dated but is very clean and comfortable. The hotel location is not ideal if you are wanting to go downtown to shop and eat but it is in a quieter area if that is what you are looking for....

Thank you for your review and I'm excited to hear that you'll return. That is one of the biggest complements we can receive. We are located in the Northern part of Boulder, just a short drive up Broadway from the downtown area. Or we are just a short ride on the Skip bus, which comes every 15 minutes and goes...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, we found the room comfortable staff were friendly and the breakfast choice was pretty good. Although a little on the outside of the outskirts of town the hotel suited our needs. We would visit this hotel again if we planned to return to see Boulder.

This hotel is clean, quiet and represents good value for the Boulder area. The breakfast is above average for a chain hotel. The hotel is only a 10 minute straight shot down Broadway to the Pearl Street Mall.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Were glad you were able to start your day with our free breakfast which we consider to be the best in town. Thank you for recognizing the cleanliness of our hotel. Our housekeeping staff works tirelessly to provide clean and comfortable rooms.

Pricey but a real nice Holiday Inn Express. Exit right and you are 3 miles to Pearl Street. Go left and you are on the way to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. Clean and quiet rooms and nice staff from housekeeping to the front desk

The hotel itself was clean with courteous staff. Breakfast was good too. The room we were in had a great view of the foothills. I'd recommend you ask for one of those rooms. I think we had 315. The only thing a little strange was the location. Some might consider it not in the greatest area. We did not feel...

Thank you for your review. Were glad you enjoyed your stay. The "questionable" buildings you are referring to is the Army Reserve complex across the street. A very secure area. We do have great views being right up against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and have terrific hiking/walking trails just minutes away.

My husband & I recently stayed 8 nights at this Boulder hotel. When in town visiting our son we usually stay closer to "downtown". This trip we opted for the Holiday Inn Express as our son just moved to that North Boulder area and we would be closer to him. The drive from the hotel parking lot to the Spruce...

Nice place in a beautiful town. The hotel lobby has brochures for local attractions as well as Boulder city parks and trails, and you can just walk out the front door and stretch out your legs in a scenic and pedestrian-friendly area.

Thank you for your review. We're glad you were able to enjoy a walk in the beautiful foothills of the rocky mountains. Having a trail head within a block of the hotel offers our guests the unique opportunity of escaping into nature by literally walking out the front door.

Very nice and helpful staff. Quick check in. Very clean. Comfortable room. In a safe area. Dog friendly with good potty areas.

Becuase that is after all our primary goal, to ensure everyone gets a great nights sleep followed by a good hearty breakfast. Glad to hear you took advantage of our free WI-FI.
