We spent one night at the A-Lodge (in December 2018), as it was well priced and had good reviews and photos. We had a room with queen bed and a little kitchenette. The vibe was rustic, homely and cosy rather than modernised. The location is a couple of minutes drive away from

My family loved our stay at Boulder Adventure Lodge. We stayed 2 nights before heading up to Estes. Staff made us feel welcome and gave us advice on trails to hike along the way. Close to downtown but secluded. We ate dinner each night on the picnic table outside our room and

Hey OrangeandPurple. So so sorry you had a less than optimal experience in the hostel. Would love to talk with you more on this to learn more about your experience and to figure out how we can help prevent this in the future. The doors do lock automatically and we are here 24/7 at the frontdesk. We have never had any security issues here, not even a theft in the four years we have been open. Hope that helps and again, would appreciate a phone call to discuss to help us improve.

We stayed for a quick overnight in Boulder and had an excellent time! We had a 3 bedroom cabin with a full kitchen, dinning table and patio with a grill (an unexpected surprise!). Located a few miles into Boulder canyon the lodge is close enough to pop into town to pick up

Love this place. Brits - Boulder is the Ambleside of the USA, and this accommodation sets the scene nicely, an outsdoorsy kinda of place. Lovely little lodges, we had a private double, it had a little kitchen sink, fridge, hob ring and coffee maker if you need it, nice

Sorry, I was a tourist like you and have no ability to place reservations.

Are you a marijuana friendly establishment?
No smoking in rooms. As others have said - lots of open air spaces on the grounds exist (away from the rooms) where you will have no problems while partaking in your cannabis of choice. Terrapin Station (about 10 min from A Lodge) has GREAT prices and product. Hiking trails (with platforms for camping) behind the lodge, chill chairs are often set up streamside on a small beachy area, a gazebo away from the parking areas, slack-line park, etc are just a few places to choose from (; ENJOY and cheers!

Do you have air conditioning?
No, we do not have air conditioning. We do have fans in each room and rarely need A/C with the creek running through the property to cool things down. We also have a pool.

Hi Emilie, sorry for the slow response. Getting from DIA I would recommend the AB route of the RTD bus system which takes you to Boulder Transit Center. Then taking the N route to Fourmile Canyon or a cab or uber. Also, Greenride is a great option to get from the airport direct to the A-Lodge. We provide coffee free of charge in the office all day :)

Airport shuttle is not offered. Having a rental car is a plus for getting around for sure. It is an easy drive from the airport. Just stay out of the express lanes and off the toll roads in your rental car to avoid being charged a huge fee by your rental car company.

"Avoid the older deluxe room and go for suites or even standard rooms."
"Hostel rooms are also available, as are bigger rooms for families."
"ask for an updated room if they have one"
"Don't leave food in your car, and lock the doors at night. There are bears in these hills!!"
"Variety of accommodations from campsite, bunk bed in the hostel room, to rooms with jacuzzis and a cottage. Something for everyone."
US$87 - US$229 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
