Every morning there was something different. Hotel staff was very helpful with directions to attractions throughout the city. Hot tub was a bonus after hiking all day. We...

I don't get too excited by hotel chains... so long as they are reasonably clean and not too expensive I am fine with them and this place was just that... fine. Decent breakfast in the AM even though you have to go outside to get to the breakfast area... maybe that is changing as it seems like new construction.

Have stayed at the Best Western Plus Boulder Inn for many years while attending an annual conference at nearby University of Colorado. This hotel is great at all levels. Good value, pleasant staff, great rooms. Recent upgrades to some rooms has made this hotel even better.

My family and I stayed at this hotel between Christmas/New Years 2016. The hotel was fantastic. The staff were polite, professional and very helpful. The hotel is clean, well cared for, and our room was outstanding. I have read other reviews about construction and disagree that its a factor. There is some construction going on as they are making upgrades,...

Stayed one night on our way to Winterpark. Older style property so the rooms are not handicap accessible like a newer Best Western. Could not maneuver a walker through the sink area or into the bathroom. That was disappointing. Clean room and nice breakfast area. Good hotel for the price.

This hotel needs to be updated but my fear is the 'bones' are not ever going to be good enough. It's clear when you look at the exterior that it's an old motor lodge. Our room had not been refurbished completely but the thin walls which allow all noise to transfer won't be fixed with an 'update'. The new shower...
