... the way to the airport. Tears of anxiety mostly. Being that I have such a great relationship with my mom and felt like that time went by too quickly, it was hard to say goodbye and face the adventure with new eyes. I had rested but I felt like my heart was at unrest from being displaced. A new pressure has been added and as excited as I am, I still feel I am wrestling with it...
Thoughts? There are too many and not structure about them to put them in words..
So I haven't updated in a while but this is because I haven't had access to a solid computer. either way, we left chicago and have had a few car problems since. We got a flat tire just outsdie of chicago and a police officer pulled over and called us a help truck to change our tire. We drove to a Walmart to get a new tire soon after and found out that for all wheel drive vehicles you have to get all four tires replaced. Expensive! but it all worked out and I have 4 brand spanking ...

... I decided that I didn't want to carry them in my jersey pocket. Since most of the aid stations are off on the side of the road you find yourself walking around in dirt and gravel which are not compatible with cleats.
I will mention that the aid stations were well stocked so no issues with having to carry a lot of food around with you so after refueling we started the descent. Pretty quickly we began to hit speeds of 30 mph and higher. Many people ...

We nicknamed the trip the "Alexander the Great Trip" but since he didn't really go all the places we are headed, I went with the much less exciting and cheesy Balkan Dreams. Hopefully the writing gets more creative as we go. We are sad to leave our mutt, but once again we have an amazing woman here taking care of him. Life is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Harvest House Boulder
Ok, I have never written one of these, but we were so let down by our stay we, I really wanted to share with others. We picked this hotel originally because it had a great price, seemed nice in the pictures, and was a great location.
We had a great stay at the Millennium, especially since we only paid $65 a night through Priceline. The location is perfect - right on the Boulder Creek Bike Trail and just a short drive (or ride) to the Pearl Street Mall. They have indoor and outdoor pools, spas and tennis courts. We rented bikes (and a tandem!) right near by. Safeway is around the corner to buy those fruits and powerbars before a hike. The staff was very friendly and helpful and let us store the tandem behind the front desk overnight. Our bed was comfortable and we enjoyed our breakfast (purchased at Safeway) on our balcony. The downsides: the bathroom was small and a little old, and our view was of a huge air conditioning unit, although there were mountains behind that. (Please note: we stayed on a weekend and weren't able to get rooms there through Priceline during the week.)
Unlike all the other reviewers, my stay was rather pleasant. I picked it because Frommer's had given it a good review and we got a decent rate.
I stayed at the Millennium Harvest House Hotel in Boulder as it was the designated hotel for a conference I was attending at the nearby college. There were several problems I encountered during my stay that each were minor by themselves, but by the time I left, added up to a very disappointing experience.
Housekeeping needs attention.
While the room was clean and comfortable, the bed linens were not changed during our 4 night stay and the toilet articles not replenished, even after request. Noise was not a problem; mattresses comfortable enough; breakfast uneven...berries poured on my plate straight from the box...not washed. Would stay again due to location and price.
A place to hear your neighbors party all night long
I had the misfortune of staying one night at this dump before checking out and moving to my kid's apartment for the remainder of the week. The walls are paper-thin. The carpets are filthy, the room dirty, and pretty small for an american motel. There were parties going in neighboring rooms (way past 2 am). When I complained to the front desk Manager that night and the next morning, they said that I should have known that it was right next to the campus and therefore it would be a party hotel. They didn't bother to help.
So, if a) getting some sleep at night while visiting your CU student; or b) dealing with courteous motel staff; or c) being in a room where you are not afraid to step on the carpet in your bare feet are important --- stay away from this place!
Skip this one
Reservation agent assured me the executive suite was big enough for our family of five -- it even came with access to the executive lounge -- breakfast & dessert buffets and free internet. The five of us, the pullout sofa and rollaway fit -- but there was little room for the luggage!
The staff knew nothing of the executive suite privileges that were included -- and after trying both "buffets", I understand why they didn't bother to mention them. Never did find the free internet access.
Hotel was clean but tired looking. Outdoor pool was nice. Concierge services could have been a lot better: we were looking for more than chain restaurants on Pearl Street.
This is a dump!
I stayed at the Millenium Harvest House Hotel in August, 2003. I was there for a meeting. So, they jacked up the prices. It was very expensive and the hotel was a dump! When I checked into the room, the water was brown. They told me that it would be better later in the day. That does nothing for someone who has driven 15 hours and needs a shower. The food in the hotel restaurant was taste-free and expensive. People working at the front desk were very unknowledgable. The parking lot was not well-lit. I felt very unsafe. Avoid this place!
Would not stay at the Millennium Harvest House again
We were at the Millenium Harvest House July 8-11 attending a tennis event with a large group. Those on the 1st floor of the low-rise building had trouble with bugs. We were on the 2nd floor with a balcony that had a view of the large heating & cooling units. The bathroom (shower/tub, vanity & sink, toilet) was cramped. The dressing area had a vanity counter but no mirror. Closet door was mirrored. The king bed was very comfortable. The walls are thin, so we ran the fan all night to mask the noise. The restaurant food was good, but the service was the worst I've seen. We complained to the manager, but she was not interested in hearing us. We loved the tennis courts, but would stay at an adjacent hotel should we again travel to Boulder.
Great hotel, beautiful grounds (trails), but the concept of soundproofing seems to have escaped management. You will hear doors slam all night long. What a dreadful disappointment to an otherwise great hotel.
