Rodeway Inn & Suites Boulder Broker
Ranked #18 of 23 Hotels in Boulder
Reviewed 14 August 2014

The first thing I would do if I had any authority at this hotel would be open the doors, open the windows, do anything to get some fresh air in this place!! The smoking in the hall problem has been solved and the staff tries to be helpful but this hotel needs updated and freshened asap!!



Pros: Nice location, friendly helpful staff

Cons: Needs updated really bad.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with friends

The hotel is the absolutely worse hotel that I have ever experienced. We arrived at the hotel exhausted from our travels and looked forward to a comfortable stay. But things changed quickly when we arrived at the hotel. We immediately knew we had been duped by Choice Hotels when we compared the Choice Hotel Website pictures to the actual conditions we had witnessed. The hotel didn't look anything like the pictures from the website that were the basis for our hotel selection. The hotel was in complete disrepair. Our first clue that things were not right occurred when we noticed that the front entrance glass door was broken, the lobby wreaked and all of the exit doors were unlocked and people were walking in and out of the various doors. It turns out all the people in the lobby and hallways were monthly boarders. The monthly boarders are taken in when a hotel can't fill up its rooms because the hotel is in complete disrepair and the owners won't spend the money to bring the hotel up to the standards required. After we checked into the hotel and went to our room we turned down the bed sheets and found food under the sheets, blood on the drapes and bugs. We immediately left the room and demanded a complete refund and checked into the Hyatt. The hotel was filthy, unsafe and in complete disrepair. They couldn't pay me to stay in that pit ever. Further, Choice Hotels should take away their Flag!!!

Room Tip: There is no good rooms. The hotel will be shut down by the heath department soon!!!

The hotel smelled weird, the room we stayed at smelled like cigar smoke. They couldn't change it because the hotel was full, we asked for air freshner and we never go it. Breakfast is really basic and I can't believe this hotel uses plastic plates and cups, producing so much trash and waste. Coffee wasn't good at all and orange juice tasted like old. It was way too expensive to have this kind of experience.

Got stuck in Boulder overnight and needed a cheap place to crash. The price may be right here, but beyond the Lobby area, one enters the type of filth reserved for public buildings with too much foot traffic. Red carpets are stained black and strange smells emanate from the hallways.

Beds were ok and the bathroom was fine along with the pool area, but the most disturbing aspect of my stay was the cadre of migrant work crews that linger just outside the side doors looking to take advantage of free hotel internet which has no password. One must literally maneuver around these guys just to get to your vehicle which makes things kind of creepy.

Room Tip: Stay Off the first floor as there are no ice machines until floor two, plus it smells better the hig...

It is obvious that this was once a very nice place to stay, but it has become rundown and needed repairs and updates are not being made. They are cutting too many corners. I would not recommend this hotel.

You get what you pay for. My room was fine. Bed was comfortable, door locked. CU students do live there so it is an interesting crowd. The staff was always helpful when I needed anything. The bar in the hotel was cool and the bartender was very friendly. The location is key right next to the CU campus so I was able to get any place on campus I needed quickly.

Boulder hotels are very expensive and we were just looking for a place to sleep for the night. The hotel was hard to find and is also known as The Broker Hotel.

The building was probably a gem in its day. The bones are there but it is so old and not kept up. It is a shame since you can see the grandeur that is no longer there. With the location to campus I think visiting parents would LOVE to stay here if it was updated/refurbished.

One of the beds was so broken in that my husband was swallowed in it. He slept with pillows under his butt and back to try to prop him up. Had we not checked in so late we would have asked for a change.

I am sure it is expensive to update but with a "little" money this hotel could be really nice and with a nice investment it could be grand.

Will look elsewhere next time we are in Boulder.
