Historical Traveler Reviews University Inn Boulder
I recently returned from a trip to Boulder where I stayed at The University Inn. Great central location, clean and updated room with friendly and helpful staff. All of this at a very reasonable rate and to top it off they include a free continental breakfast.
Highly recommend this hotel.
Sono rientrato di recente da una vacanza a Boulder, dove ho alloggiato all' University Inn. Ubicato in posizione centrale, pulito con camera rimodernata e personale disponibile. Tutto cio' ad una tariffa competitiva con colazione continentale gratuita.
Lo consiglio altamente.
Excellent location and value
My son and I stayed at this hotel for one night while visiting the University of Colorado at Boulder. It was an excellent location, just three blocks and an easy stroll from the Pearl Street pedestrian mall. The room with two beds was no-frills but clean and fine for our purpose, which was mostly someplace to lay our heads. A continental breakfast in the tiny breakfast room enhanced the value (we paid $72). Staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast room also had a public computer available. The only annoyance: the directions to the hotel on the hotel website had a couple of critical typos (the I-70 exit number, for example, was incorrect, as was the highway number when we finally found the right exit).
Thank you for your great feedback on the Boulder University Inn. Our goal is to provide our guests the best budget accomodations in Boulder with all the amenities you need and nothing you don't!
We appreciate you letting us know our website directions were incorrect - we understand how frustrating that can be. Please know that they were corrected immediately.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We look forward to being your hotel of choice when in Boulder!

Inexpensive hotel in a great location-blocks from Pearl St., shops, restaurants etc. Free internet, parking and continental breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff. It is a bit loud at times as you are so centrally located, but that is the trade-off. Would stay there again. Be sure to ask for non-smoking room if you don't smoke.
Hotel conveniente in un'ottima posizione a pochi isolati da Pearl St., vicino a negozi, ristoranti ecc. Internet, parcheggio e colazione continentale gratuiti. Il personale era cordiale ed efficiente. A volte si sentivano i rumori del traffico perchè è situato in centro, ma questo era l'unico neo. Ci tornerei di nuovo. Ricordatevi di richiedere una camera per non fumatori se non fumate.
Checked into the University Inn in Boulder, Colorado on a Tuesday last week. We were having hard wood floors put into our house in North Boulder. I have lived in Boulder for many years and have always wanted to stay at UI because it seemed like such a great location to everything in town, the University and the Pearl Street mall. I was thrilled when Patty in reception told me they took dogs. We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights. Every morning when grabbing some breakfast at the complimentary continental breakfast offered by the hotel, my husband and I were always greeted by Patty with a big sunny smile and a warm word. Patty made our stay at University Inn very memorable. If we ever need a hotel again in Boulder the only place we will consider is University Inn. Patty Rocks!!!!!!
I booked the least expensive hotel I could find in Boulder for a week long busniss trip. I just knew it would be cruddy but was ok with that. When I arrived to the room I could not believe how nice it was! I have stayed in a billion motels and this one was very nice. It was within walking distance to everything, had comfortable beds, and very nice staff. It is right across the street from a Wild Oats store so I was a happy camper. It could use a mini fridge but for the rates that is being pretty picky. The continental breakfast was a plus as well as the wireless internet. Looking back, I can't pin point why I liked this place so much but this is a few months later and I am writing this....
Run, don't walk-double double time
I reserved what I thought was a room with 2 double beds for 2 nights in Boulder via my AAA internet site. We arrived late in the evening with two unexpected babies in tow--no problem, we were going to have 2 beds in the room. After check-in I discovered our room had 1 bed!!! I promptly went back to the office and stated my problem. I was informed that if I'd wanted 2 beds I should've reserved a "Double Double" room. I said that in all my years of reserving rooms via the internet I had never seen the term "Double Double". I was informed that it is "industry standard" to list rooms as "Double Double" if you want 2 beds. Well, you can bet I checked that out and found no major hotel chain that uses that term on their info. page. As their were no other rooms we were stuck with 2 adults, 1 teen ager and 2 babies under 2 with a double bed and a rollaway reluctantly scrounged up by the manager. The first thing that happened in the room was that my teen ager was unable to get out of the bathroom because the door lock got stuck. Then my grandson tripped over the upraised doorjam to the bathroom and hit his head on the tile floor. The heat was either blast furnace or freezer and all night long spring breakers were tromping around upstairs and outside. Breakfast was stale donuts provided in the lobby.The next morning we checked out--the manager begrudgingly let us, reminding us that the error was our fault-and checked in at the Golden Buffalo. A beautiful huge room and free full breakfasts at a wonderful restaurant next door. So, be aware, reserve "double double" or you'll get "double double" trouble!
I stayed here in February 2005 and really liked the hotel. It was renovated a year ago and is in great shape. The staff was very friendly and even let me sniff a smoking room before booking (it smelled pretty bad to me so they gave me a nonsmoking for the same price). The room was very clean but it was very cold when I arrived (ask them to turn on the heat before you get there if you remember). The location couldn't be better. You're within a 5 minute walk from Pearl Street. The price isn't too bad either. I would definitely recommend staying here. The only negative thing I can think of is that the printer at the computer for guests was out of ink. But it was still nice that they had complementary internet access for guests.

We were both a little dozy still in the morning, but packed and then drove north. Stopped in Boulder in the foothills about noon. Went to the Pearl Street Mall and had lunch, and decided not to continue to Fort Collins. We strolled around and bought tickets to a documentary screening for that night as part of the Boulder International Film Festival …
... which has a nice ring to it when the moment is right haha). I went through hundreds of miles of absolutely nothing. Small town after small town, one with a population of ten. There were cow, sheep, and horse farms. I stopped to pee on the side of the road, right next to a cow mooing at me bahaha. I've gone to the bathroom more in the wilderness than I have in an actual toilet in the past 20 days (not sure you all wanted that tidbit ...
... We arrived in Denver at around four thirty and caught a bus to the rental car place. It was freezing cold, there was frost on the ground and also all over our hire car. It was a struggle to drive the car because the drivers seat was on the left side instead of the right side, it was really weird. We drove the car to the hotel. Once we had checked in we walked through the freezing cold to ...
... with stairways (which is nice in the summertime but I can imagine it must be freezing cold in the wintertime). Since I don't have a lot of time before the flight starts boarding, I visit the airport restaurant/bar, "Jedediah's at the Airport" and grab a hummus snack (nearly $10 for a hummus snack and a bottle of water, what a ripoff).
... the other angel I have met.
Finishing up everything, I started to meet new people. Because it was International student orientation, and also because the majority of international students is Chinese, I found it was not **********ly speak Chinese…;) there were lots of Chinese students coming from different parts of China. In the mean time, I also made many friends from other countries. It was my first time to ...
