Motel was ok. Room was a little small for a Best Western Plus. Had to get towels for pool at front desk which was a little inconvenient. Breakfast was ok but not great. Wasn't kept warm. Overall I thought it was a little expensive for what we received.

Stayed for four nights in Sept 2015 visiting town for my cousin's wedding. Hotel is well designed and spotlessly clean. Nothing too much trouble for the staff, and we will definitely bear this in mind for future visits. Too bad my dad made all the bookings - I missed out on Best Western loyalty points!!!

We checked in on Saturday afternoon and the receptionist was so polite, efficient and helpful. The lobby and corridors of the hotel were very clean and tastefully decorated. We were so pleased when we entered our room as it was massive with a king size bed. There were thoughtful touches in the bathroom such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving foam and... More

Spent a week here on business. It looks like a dump from the outside, but it has been thoroughly renovated--very nice. Very convenient for business (or pleasure) at University of Colorado.

This hotel was in a perfect location for visiting a student at CU Boulder. The hotel itself is dated, but clean. All of the people working here were wonderful. The rooms are also dated but clean.

Nothing fancy, but a great value (at least for the conference rate we paid), walking distance to UC Boulder (but a 2-mile walk to Pearl St.), and running distance to Chautauqua Park. Better than average fitness center and good breakfast.
