This hotel needs to be updated but my fear is the 'bones' are not ever going to be good enough. It's clear when you look at the exterior that it's an old motor lodge. Our room had not been refurbished completely but the thin walls which allow all noise to transfer won't be fixed with an 'update'. The new shower...

Hi Kim A, When we embarked on a 2 million dollar remodel to the conference center and front of the hotel, our expectations were very high. As we come to the close of the renovation work, the end result has surpassed even our highest expectations. It looks absolutely fantastic. I am glad that you enjoyed our complimentary hot breakfast.

I had stayed at this hotel in the past and my only qualm was the exterior but that is looking fantastic now. It must be what all the construction comments were about. Staff and room were fantastic. I decided to return because of the breakfast and it was better than I remembered.

We love this hotel for its professional and helpful staff. They seem to respond to each request as if it's as important to them as it is to the customer. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is fine and the location is great. We hope to carry on our tradition and return next year.

Nice hotel, clean, and flexible. Great value for Boulder, and close to the campus we were visiting. The showers have great water pressure which was a real treat, coming from CA where there's a drought! The breakfast is included and there' a great selection. The staff is friendly and helpful and I'd stay there agin.

Hi travelingms5, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm glad that you enjoyed your room, and our large complimentary hot breakfast.

The motel is OLD and seems to be constantly under construction. Our room was clean, the beds were good and shower pressure was great...the room just seemed dated and stale. The floor in our 1st floor room wasn't level and we almost fell a few times. I give it a "C-"

Hi william h, We made a decision to spend nearly 2 million dollars renovating the exterior of our conference center. This building, adjacent to the hotel, is the home to two large conference rooms, and numerous corporate conferences. Part of the renovation project was to clad the exterior of the building in a modern material, as well as replace the...

We stayed at this hotel earlier this month. The hotel staff was very helpful from the start. The employee who checked us in asked us if there was anything he could help us with (restaurants, sights, directions). He took the time to give us a map and mark what we were interested in. He recommended an excellent Italian restaurant that...

Hi cindymichael2016, Thank you for your effusive review. How nice that you took the time and energy to express your delight with the hotel. We really appreciate it. It sounds as though someone recommended Carellis restaurant, around the corner. They have been voted the best Italian food in Boulder the last 6 years. I love their tiramisu. Please let me...

The inside of the hotel and the staff are very nice, but the outside is under construction. This makes it a little hard to find from the road, and some amenities are harder to access. For some reason, they leave all of the lights and the fan in the room on all day, wasting a lot of electricity.
