My husband, my mother and her fiance stayed here for one night after the three of them came to Boulder to visit me while I was attending classes at UC-Boulder. I had researched the hotel using past reviews from other TripAdvisor users. I knew that it was a ways from town, was an old office building and there were not elevators. I was completely fine with all that. (I did rate location as poor because, while I wasn't BOTHERED by the drive, it is poorly located.) We arrived at the hotel around 9 or so on a Friday evening after going to a late dinner. There was no hotel employee to be found. We found our name on an envelope at the front desk containing a key and room number. We took our luggage to the room and opened the door to what can only be described as a sauna. It was mid/late July and the room was easily over 80 degrees. Not exactly the relaxing environment we desired in a hotel room. We cranked up the air but it didn't really get cool until the next morning when we were getting ready to check out. You would think they could have turned on the air before they left our keys at the front desk for the weekend. It was a big room but the bathroom was tiny, a shower, toilet and barely enough room to shut the door. There were only two towels in the bathroom for a room with two queen size beds. On one of several trips to the dirty-floored laundry area, I looked for the "extra towels" in the seemingly appropriately labeled cupboards but to no avail. The only thing I found were extra washcloths which is what my husband I resorted to drying ourselves with after our showers the next morning. On all those trips through the hotel, not once did I ever see a single hotel employee. The next morning, my mom and her fiance awoke early to take a walk in the area, still, no hotel employee was anywhere to be found. It was also past the point of the continental breakfast and the room wasn't even unlocked. By the time we checked, we were able to find somebody who was vacuuming to help us check out. Never again will we stay at this establishment and we will tell anybody who will listen to avoid it as well. The price wasn't bad but it was astronomical when you consider we paid for an uncomfortable bed in a hot room where we had to get our own necessities. We would have been better off sleeping in our cars.
