Days Hotel Boulder
Ranked #20 of 23 Hotels in Boulder
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Place was designed like a prison. All entry & exit seen from the front desk. Wierd guys--not desk staff-- hanging around in front lobby around midnight when I checked in. They watched me while I took several trips to move my stuff in.

The management and staff of the Days Hotel Boulder truly appreciate your comments and opinion. We regret that you did not like the design of our hotel or the fact that other guests were enjoying our lobby as you checked into our hotel. Many of our guests like the fact that our staff has the ability to watch our entrances for safety and security concerns; as well as there being a friendly staff willing answer questions about the beautiful city of Boulder Colorado or just being a friendly person to talk with. I hope you will find accommodations more to your liking the next time you visit boulder. Thank you again for your comments and opinions.

In another lifetime i was married to a hotel manager, so I am familiar with the ins (inns) and outs of hotel management. The Days Hotel in Boulder is a great place to stay. It feels as if all the people working there have been long-term employees. They know their business well, and they seem genuinely happy to help the guests. The property is always clean. Their new exterior paint job is eye-catching and attractive. Their restaurant is reasonably priced and serves good food. The prices are reasonable. I give the Days Hotel an "A."

Let me start by saying that I am not typically one to write hotel reviews. Most of the time I find that people tend to overreact about these middle-of-the-pack priced hotels that are budget friendly, but certainly not luxury. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with the Days Hotel in Boulder.

There were still a few pros:

-Relatively close to downtown boulder. A few miles in the car, but not walking distance.
-Clean. Our biggest necessity was cleanliness, and we were not disappointed there.
-Space: The rooms were a decent size.


Now for the cons:

-Just an overall lack of standard hotel amenities. Our appliances barely worked. The TV remote was dead, the coffee maker was dead, the hair dryer was on its last life and kept needing to be reset, and if you wanted to use the microwave, you had to pick something else to unplug in order to plug the new appliance in.
-NOISE. Two different nights there were people just straight up yelling and partying outside our window at 1 and 2 am.. I'm not sure if there is another hotel or an apartment complex back there, but they are certainly not quiet.
-Bed: I found it extremely uncomfortable. My girlfriend said she didn't mind it much, but I was really disappointed.
-Service: I asked two different hotel employees if they could please replace our broken coffee maker in our room (ok, so I'm a bit of an addict) and it never got replaced or even addressed as far as we could tell. One of the two employees said they would check the stock room for one, and that was the last we ever heard.
-Restaurant: Just plain bad. With no continental breakfast, this was our only on-site option. It was pricey and flavorless.
-"Mountain View": this is really more of a pet-peeve than a legitimate complaint, but the mountain view is certainly not what you imagine by the pictures. What they really mean is, "Here's a great view of the big parking lot with the mountains kind of in the background" ...unless maybe you're on the top floor.

So all in all, a standard case of "you get what you pay for." Not terrible, but it is definitely worth looking into other options. We will be looking elsewhere for our next trip to beautiful Colorado.
