“Awsome hotel & staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

Beautiful hotel! More like a bed & breakfast! Friendly staff always eager to help answer questions about area! Small pond next to parking lot! Short walk away are 2 small lakes! We stayed in room 217 (2 Queens & a sofa bed). Large room! The best part of the stay was when I went to bed that night & looked up at the ceiling there was a constellation! Not too bright, just light enough that when you would gently rouse up during the night you felt like you were sleeping outside under the stars on a super comfortable bed! Loved it! Hated to leave my 'universe' after a couple of nights to continue our vacation in Denver in a 'regular hotel room'!

Room Tip: Room 217 you will sleep under the stars in a large room!

We were booked through Orbitz to stay here during my son's graduation festivities. Unfortunately, a problem with the reservation system left us with no room here. We were disappointed as it looked like a wonderful, quiet, clean place, in a beautiful residential setting. The good news is that the owner located alternate accomodations for us and paid the difference in price. If we ever have need to stay over in Boulder again, we will definitely try to stay here. We really appreciated the assistance shown in fixing our predicament.

Very relaxed and accomadating staff -- they moved furniture for us to make room more functional. People were there but everyone was quiet and respectful. Daily maid service was excellent. Beds comfortable with fresh linen and pillows. Nice quiet location in a residential area close to Boulder.
We had our own kitchen but large well supplied communal kitchen was available as well. If you are looking for the bells and whistles of a five star hotel this is not the one for you but is absolutely ideal for people who are looking for a longer, comfortable, relaxing stay. We would definately return again.

The best thing about this place is that it is located in a perfectly quiet residential neighborhood.
Well maintained rooms, nice locality, nice front-desk guy. Small kitchen (they call it kitchenette) in several of the rooms adds terrific value to it. This also makes it well suited for extended stay.
A walking/jogging trail around and going through the twin lakes is nice. The room are large, it had two queen size beds in the room I stayed. Daily breakfast is provided in the common dining room in morning. Quite friendly staff. My check-out time was 2 pm, I checked out at 4.
Overall excellent experience. If I visit Boulder again, I am definitely going to stay here.

Room Tip: Select a room with kitchennete, it will help cook your own stuff.

The most important thing over there was the staff being so friendly and nice,
They were so helpful as we put any request,
Despite of the breakfast time being 7-10 am, they opened kitchen door 9:00 PM for us to eat as we just arrived from the airport
Overally, the place is soooo good and worth for the money you pay, if not more!

The Twin Lakes Inn is unusual in several ways. The front door is open 24 hours a day and gives access directly into the whole building. If there was a night porter, visitors would go past him, but there's no night porter. There's no day staff either, although some mornings there was a man behind the desk with his head in the computer reading a facebook page but he never looked up. He might have been a guest. We arrived on a Friday night around 6.30pm, having reserved three rooms, walked through the front door and were greeted by a basket on the deserted reception desk in an empty foyer. In the basket were envelopes with keys and our names. Help yourself. The rooms are fine - quite large but with an odd arrangement for the bathroom. The ensuite bathroom contains a toilet and a shower, however the hand basin is next to the kitchen sink in the main room. Parking and internet are free and so is breakfast - but don't get too excited. This Inn seems to have been established by marathon runners for marathon runners, and breakfast is a spartan affair of cereal, carbs, a banana and a boiled egg. However, there are a couple of good coffee shops five or ten minutes drive away, where breakfast is of course not free but at least there's a range of food available. When we booked online, the site said that the Inn was close to Folsom Field which is what we wanted. "Close" turned out to be a matter of opinion but you'll need a car. The Twin Lakes Inn is miles from any commercial centers, but there's not alot of traffic and it's certainly quiet. It was as if we had keys to a room in someone else's house when they're away - there was no linen service or room cleaning during the three days and nights we were there and we rarely saw another guest. But we liked the room and we liked being able to come and go without checking in, so for us it was a good experience. We'd recommend this place if you're looking to hide or need to avoid the media but if you're at all nervous about security or have young kids, I think you should look somewhere else.

BineshPrasad, Owner at Boulder Twin Lakes Inn, responded to this review, 30 July 2013
The building was built in 1985 and the Inn has been extensively renovated in the last six years.We try our best to maintain the carpets in hallways and rooms on a regular basis. It is not functional to steam clean when we are full or when the room is going to be occupied that day. One window panel was cracked in one of our rooms and the window has been ordered. We are going to change all our windows this fall/winter.
We have 16 camera surveillance system running 24/7 and we are located in a safe, quiet neighborhood. I am so sorry that you did not have a better experience of our Inn. I will take care of you personally for your next visit.

Bizarre decore, breakfast not as good as advertised, kitchen sink directly next to bathroom sink. We confirmed room 106, double queen, and when we arrived after hours our confirmation packet said room 106 but we had the key for room 205, king bedded room. It was late and not worth the hassle of changing rooms knowing they were fully booked. It is also located in the middle of a residential area and looks as if it is just a converted apartment building but I guess you get what you pay for.
