My family wanted a hotel close to Pearl Street, on the mountain side, and all of the others were full. We slept well and felt clean when we left, but "suite" and "kitchen" are an overstatement, and the furnishings are pretty basic and old. I think the bedspreads might actually be the same as in the movie Catch and Release, released in 2006, the sheets and towels were clean. We had our window open to cool off the room and enjoy the fresh air, but had to close it because somebody was smoking marijuana outside and it was blowing in.

Good location but really dirty. The floor was weirdly wet. There was mold in the bathroom and on the facets. Didn't shower because the bathroom was pretty dirty. Really questioned whether the sheets were changed.

My son and I got the chance to visit Silver Saddle in January. We stayed on three different occasions and stayed in three different rooms. The newest part of the Motel had fine spacious room and an atmosphere much like any midrange motel/hotel. Rooms were clean and service was great. On the other trips we stayed in the cabins. As soon as we entered the rustic unit we got a blast from the past. It was like stepping into the 1950's. The fixtures, interior design and kitchenette were totally retro from the fifties. From the natural wood paneling to the yellow Formica countertops, everything screamed road trip with Lucy and Desi. If you want something different try the cabins. A tip before you go, if you want a five star space, do not pick the cabins. It can be a bit awkward to navigate the bathroom if you are of size, the shower, toilet and sink are in very close proximity.

When I was growing up in the late fifties, I remember our family vacations in the Rockies. As kids we thought that it was so cool to stay in a motel with a kitchen in it, my mother was not as taken aback with it. The only things that were missing from the Silver Saddle to meet the total 50's image was the kids playground in front, a slime green swimming pool and a black and white TV.

Motels like the Silver Saddle are far and few between, they are vanishing so fast in our time that my son and I were very fortunate to find this gem.

I have read all of the reviews posted on the internet dealing with Silver Saddle Motel. It is quite obvious that the guests that gave poor reviews, did not get it, they wanted a four or five star room with all of the amenities that come with it, what they got, but could not see, was a vignette from our past.

As a sixty plus year old guest with my twenty year old son, I was thrilled to show my son how we were accommodated in the 1950's when we went on summer vacations.

Boulder is a great place to visit, great outdoor adventures, super people and lots to do downtown. Both myself and my son thought that the Silver Saddle Motel was the crown that topped our stay.

All of the staff at the motel went out of their way to make us feel like we were special guests. I take my hat off to all of them. Thanks again, we will be back.

This is the worst place I've ever stayed at. The room was not very clean. The bedspreads looked like they hadn't been washed in months or years. The room had a unique odor to it. The heater didn't work. The picture of the place is misleading, you think you are going to stay in the run down looking cabins but instead you are staying at the Bates motel only this one has 2 floors. Looks like people live on the property in a van and an old camping trailer. But I am grateful at least there was hot water.

I planned a getaway for my wife and I. We spent one night I Denver before arriving to Silver Saddle. She got pampered there. Upon our arrival her face dropped. The rooms looked very dated. I guess l like back to the 70s. The place was clean, just in need of refurbishing. Nice location. Nice people. For me, I was more than okay with this setup. My wife is too prissy she was miserable, therefore I was too. I have to say, we would not return.
