I stayed at Boulder Twin Lakes Inn for two nights and it suited my needs perfectly. There was easy, efficient check-in that didn't need a member of staff to be present. I had a very comfortable large room in a quiet, restful environment. It was exactly what i needed after being on an education program for a week and traveling...

We made a booking and arrived to find that the place was booked out. The only consolation they provided was a smaller room at full price, which would not accommodate all of us. I then spoke to the owner who said in these exact words "take it or leave it" and after expressing my disappointment at this offer "stay somewhere...

Recently my dad and my brother spend 9 days there. They were very happy with the hotel. The hotel is super quiet, very clean, and comfortable. You can find there happy people and also a beautiful environment around it.

What a great week in Boulder! I was in town to visit my daughter at CU and to get acclimatized to the high altitude in preparation for the Rock N Roll half marathon in Denver. The owners of Twin Lakes Inn are former Olympic Marathon Champions! They were eager to give training tips and techniques that I am certain helped...

Visiting Boulder to do some running and was looking for a quiet place, particularly since part of my visit would be during parent's weekend at CU. Couldn't have picked a better spot. From the moment I walked into my room I knew it was exactly what I wanted: a very clean and spacious room with a kitchenette. Basic laundry facilities...

Off the beaten path but right on a running one that connects guests to Boulder's quintessential trail network, Twin Lakes is like an upgraded, private room hostel where you'll find a lot of international runners on any given, due to both the owners being former Olympic runners. Good communal areas for teams; rooms are large but basic furnishings and amenities.

This is tucked away in a modest subdivision northeast of Boulder, maybe halfway to Longmont. On the positive side, it is not far from anything in this area and is reasonably priced for the area, especially if you have a dog. The negative side is a much longer list however. Although it is not far from anything, it is not...

Surprised to find this place in the middle of an upscale and quiet residential area. Room was large with two queens and a sofa bed, and had a little kitchenette. All the people working at the desk were helpful. If you want the Hampton Inn, this isn't it. Breakfast adequate but ordinary. There is only one key to the room...

Built as an office block in the 80's it's been converted into a hotel. Very welcoming, EXCELLENT beds, good breakfast, great facilities in the room. No kettle but maybe that's an expectation of the English (we do like our tea). Staff were friendly and it lived up to its rating. Recommended!

The Boulder Twin Lakes Inn is actually in a suburb, inexplicably, inside a residential neighborhood. We thought the GPS had malfunctioned. We walked in to a very bad smell in lobby, but it abated in a couple hours. Overall, we had a nice stay, and were lucky to find a room anywhere near Boulder due to evacuations from a wild...
