Could not have been happier; price ,location, cleanliness, friendliness, dog friendly!! We will be back : } you could spend much more at any a Marriott or Hilton, but if your looking for a comfortable, affordable room, this is it. And the bed rivals any of the bigger chain hotels!!

Boulder hotels could be very pricey. This is a great alternative accommodation. Free parking, free breakfast and 5 minutes walk to Pearl st. I originally booked through an Airbnb apartment right on Pearl street. The host, name Kato cancelled my stay 5 days prior to my arrival. You have free wifi in University Inn! Worth your money and stay.

Visiting our son for a couple of days. Prices were very reasonable. We had misunderstanding about room vs suite and had to book 2 rooms. Manager very, very generously comped the 2nd room. But noise from adjoining room and street traffic was an issue. Comfy bed. Good shower. Good location.

Stayed here while visiting my son for the weekend. He is a freshman at CU Boulder and I was looking for someplace walking distance from campus and also nearby restaurants on Pearl Street. The room was modern, clean, and spacious. It was nice not paying for extras like wifi, microwave, and fridge. Loved the location and the friendly staff. I... More

Smaller venue , friendly & spotless. Rooms have been recently renovated. Beds were very comfy. Friendly & helpful staff! Directly across the street is a market called Alfalfas which is an upscale grocery store with everything from soup to nuts steps away. Pearl st is a short & picturesque walk.

This is not a fancy hotel but the location is the best feature because you can walk to the Pearl Street Mall. It's a small room but accommodating and features a large shower and bathroom. If you are a light sleeper ask for a room near the back of the hotel. Also, there are no elevators to go to the... More

I have lived in Boulder for about five years, and so I know the city well. I stayed at the University Inn for about a week now, and was completely satisfied. Check in and out was quick. The rooms are somewhat small, and there is no real view. The rooms are equipped with a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. The... More

Property was clean and pleasant, and I was allowed to check in early by clerk on duty when I arrived. After leaving and returning later (10 pm) that night, I couldn't find a parking spot in the very small lot. Was told by a rude desk clerk that I had to park my car around the back of the motel,...

Great except that bathroom door did not close properly. It caused problems when one person was sleeping and the other got up to use the bathroom. Also really took a long time to get hot water for a shower.
