“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

With friends and family traveling from out of state for my son's wedding, I needed to find lodging for all of us. After checking Boulder, Longmont, and Estes Park, I discovered the Niwot Inn. What a great find!
We all loved the beautiful rooms and the great common areas where everyone could hang out together. We also enjoyed the friendly staff who went above and beyond to make us happy (Thanks Cheryl and crew!) and the yummy breakfasts, cookies, and wine and cheese. We also discovered walking trails, great restaurants, boutiques, and even a wonderful market........all within walking distance!
We will be back!!!!!!

Located 15 minutes outside Boulder Niwot Inn is a nice place to stay if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Boulder. This is a well cared for and clean B&B great for couples small families or groups located on a side street in this "one horse town."

Room was small but comfortable, although the A/C had a slight musty odor (probably just needs a new filter). I don't have a habit of rating bathrooms but the steam shower was a nice surprise! Breakfast was basically a continental but everything was fresh and well laid out although I strongly suggest you arrive early since one morning they actually ran out of napkins and silverware! 10 minutes later we were back in business but if we had been short on time we would have had to skip it.

While the Niwot Inn is an excellent choice, I wish it's location was a little more rural. For us, if you could pick it up and move it to a larger piece of land away from parking lots and houses it would warrant 5 stars.

Who am I kidding, this place is incredible! Wonderfully quiet location with breathtaking scenery and right next door to Leftys Pizza--couldn't ask for much more. Staff is friendly, and the breakfast is perfect. Can't wait to stay here again.

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Great breakfast, snacks, and wine throughout the day. Will stay again!!! Spent a little more for a suite. Big jacuzzi tube, heated toilet seat, and very comfortable bed. Niwot is also very close to Denver and Boulder. Staff is also very attentive and friendly.

We've stayed in probably 15 B&B's and the Niwot Inn is exceptional. The Inn is beautiful and tastefully decorated - tastefully does not do it justice but it's the best I can think of. The rooms are large, comfortable, the stone, timber and Southwest blend of decor is perfect. There is a calming energy to this place which is obvious the moment you enter, Food is everywhere from the breakfast to the cookies and brownies to the wine and cheese all served in the large gathering room - table, comfortable easy chairs and sofas, beautiful fireplace. Niwot is quite small - a plus if you like walking to lunch, dinner, walking/hiking paths. a bit of shopping ( check out Osmosis three doors down from the Inn) and pie from My Mom's Pie. It's a short drive to Pearl Street. All the staff is great but Cheryl and Rob (local historian) were exceptionally helpful. Our group used 13 of the rooms and they made each of us feel at home. Website is very helpful

Room Tip: Kokopelli Suite is spacious and beautiful.

Our stay at the Niwot Inn was very enjoyable. Our room was spacious with comfortable beds. We were greeted by friendly and accommodating staff that filled us in about the area. We enjoyed the wine and cheese and snacks that were offered. Breakfast was continental with a good selection including fresh waffles. It was a great start to our week visiting Colorado and South Dakota.

The Good: This place is beautifully designed and appointed - rooms have a southwestern feel with beautiful log furniture, hammered copper sink in the bathroom, elegant shower head, heated toilet seat (!), and thick linens. The front porch is a wonderful place to sit and relax with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. Cheese and wine happy hour was nice (not great). The neighborhood is quiet and worth an evening stroll through.

The Not-So-Good: Room cleaning left A LOT to be desired. Arrived the first night to a clean room but with two empty beer bottles in the garbage can. When we returned to our room for our second night, it seemed as though the housekeeper had only made the bed and left clean towels on the bathroom counter. Dirty towels were left in the bathtub. Half full coffee cups were left on the bathroom counter. A dirty bathrobe was left hanging over the arm of the chair and the garbage cans were not emptied. The 'freshly laundered' washcloths smelled of mold/mildew. Breakfast was only fair - cold cereal, cold bagels, fresh fruit salad. weak coffee.

The atmosphere was fantastic, but there was no element of above-and-beyond or anything extra special. In summary, for the $170+/nght, I would expect much more.

Eric,

First off, we are deeply sorry that your experience at the Niwot Inn did not exceed your expectations. We pride ourselves in always providing-top notch service to our guests, and typically rooms are cleaned to the highest of standards.

Unfortunately, the housekeeper who was responsible for cleaning rooms during your stay did a poor job and is no longer working for us. We are sorry that this negatively impacted your stay. We hope you would consider visiting us again.

Warmly,
The Staff at the Niwot Inn
