    Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Boulder Creek

    Had to leave after one night

    from

    We wished that we could like this hotel because we are members of the Quality Inn club and we generally like their hotels. The location is good, although not great. If you like to walk, as we do, it's not as close to things as the Boulderado or the St. Julien. It's also located on a fairly busy street. We could live with all this but what we could not live with was the smell. After spending one sleepless night, I was on the phone to the Boulderado at 6am the following morning and checked-out of the Quality Inn by 7am. While at the Quality Inn we were booked in a non-smoking room, however the doors to the room lead to an exterior breezeway and when people smoke outside their rooms, which they always do, the smell is trapped in a vacuum so that you always smell it. And the rooms have that stale smoke smell as a result. When I went to the Boulderado early the next morning they showed me one of their "smoking" rooms because it is all they had available to show me and it did not smell of smoke at all. They said that they have a special machine that cleans the air and all the fabric after a smoker has been in the room. What a difference. The folks at the Boulderado seemed to empathize with my plight. Not only did they allow us to check in at 8am, way ahead of their check-in time of 3 pm, but they upgraded us to a suite because the room they were going to put us in hadn't been cleaned yet.

    Disappointed

    from

    Booked a suite based on reviews on Tripadvisor and was disappointed. Maybe it will be nice in the summer, but we were there in the winter when Boulder had record low tempertures. You had to walk across the parking lot to get to all the facailities (fitness room, pool, jacuzzi). I did not want to walk outside in below freezing temperatures to use the pool.

    I also think it was overpriced at $105/night for a motel type place. The suite really wasn't much bigger than a hotel room, except it had a wall partition. It was clean, but the bathroom was so small and unheated. The floor was freezing!

    The staff was friendly and breakfast was fine. The room also had a refrigerator and microwave, which is convenient. However, I was so disappointed with the accommodations we only stayed for one night and moved to the Courtyard Marriott and only paid $63/night there and was much happier. At least you can walk indoors to get to the pool!

    Good little motel

    from

    This motel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms are nice and have cute log furniture. The staff was sooo nice - they went out of their way to be accommodating to us. There is a computer in the lobby for people to use (no charge) and free high speed internet connection in the rooms if you bring your laptop. The breakfast, as everyone stated, was a step above the usual continental buffet. Good location as well.

    Centrally-located, friendly customer service

    from

    I recently stayed at this hotel while in town visiting some high schools. It's very centrally-located and I was pleasantly surprised by the genuine friendliness of the people who work there. They make you feel at home, and the breakfast definitely is a big perk. In the lobby of the inn, there is an assortment of magazines, along with Boulder publications and information and the feel is very casual. My room was very clean and I slept wonderfully. The free high-speed internet access is also a perk. As many have said before, the main downside is the tightness of the parking area. However, if you have a small[er] vehicule, that's not that big of a problem.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel!

    Great Location, Friendly Staff - Outstanding!

    from

    This was the second time I stayed at the Quality Inn in Boulder and it was a very enjoyable experience. The hotel in centrally located both for exploring Boulder and visiting students at either the University of Colorado or Naropa University. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have an excellent breakfast that includes fresh hot waffles! They also have free fresh baked cookies in the afternoon and hot tea and coffee available all day in the sitting room.

    If you want to rent a bike and ride the trails around Boulder, there is a bike rental shop only 2 blocks away.

    This is an excellent stablishment and I will stay there every time I visit Boulder.

    Breakfeast was Great!

    from

    Excellent , Parking lot little crowed. But the room was very clean and roomy , However this was a upgrade due to the first suite that was offered. The first suite had separate rooms and a couch in the room away from the Bed . This would have been great for extended stay or for bussiness trip. But we desired to be all together without partiations. The Hot Breakfeast reall good. Waffles sauage , eggs and bagels. cereal . Not the usual contineantal breakfeast.

    Overall a pleasant stay.

    Great Place to Stay

    from

    We stayed at the Boulder Quality Inn and found it to be a great place to stay. The only drawback - the parking lot was a little small for manuevering our pickup truck into a spot. The staff was friendly and knowlegable about the area. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. We were able to walk to the Pearl Street Mall and it's variety of restaurants and entertainment from the motel. We will definitly stay there in the future.

    Exceptional hotel and service

    from

    The Quality Inn & Suites was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed there before. I could not have been happier with the accomidations. My room was beautifully decorated and clean. The free high speed internet was reliable and allowed me to work from my room. The free breakfast was great and the indoor pool was so relaxing. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

    Best hotel in Boulder by far

    from

    Excellent accomadation, staff could not have been nicer, rooms big and bright. This hotel would make anyones stay in Boulder a great time. Could not find anything bad to say

    Could not have been better

    from

    From the moment I walked through the door into the lobby I knew this would be a great trip. I was greeted by the Samantha, (a fluffy, well behaved dog who doubles as the Owner/ Mascot) on my way to the front desk. Once I had talked to the best desk clerk ever and gotten my key I went to my room where I was surprised by the beautiful decor and a photo of Samantha. When I got up the next morning I decided to try the complimentary breakfast. I expected bagels and cereal but got eggs and freshly made waffles, to name only a few of the wide variety of items included in the buffet. What more can I say other than I was sad to say goodbye and I am excited to go back!!

    Day 13 - Lie-ins and Breweries

    Yesterday was all about resting and getting some of our energy back - 12 days of non stop exploring and travelling the States was catching up with us (it's such a hard life I hear you say!) We woke up at around 10 am, and lazed. We had lucky charms for breakfast, and we also had some marshmallow lucky charm bars that Steph made. They were almost pure sugar I think, but so good! I started reading a ghost story called Dark Matter, as it's the Halloween season, and so far I'm ...

Storms had been threatening all day, but the weather was gorgeous for us. Afterwards we picked up Howard and Liz and headed back to the apartment for an evening of City Slickers! Man we should all go to a Dude ...

    ... climbing. Climbing sport is easier in that when you get to a good spot to attach your quick draw, you just attach the draw to the bolt that has already been positioned into place by the person who set the route.

    I have such a hard time trusting the rock, the shoes, the gear...myself, so imagine now that I am challenging myself to climb a rock and trusting in my ability to get to a place that I can hold ...

    Press Play

    A travel blog entry by alanhopkins on Aug 04, 2014

    I don't really fancy having a shower in the hotel we are in as I’m fairly certain there are people living here alongside the younger travellers that are here. We are going to our fist Air BnB today so a shower there will be infinitely better, I hope. We can get to Boulder in around an hour but we have near 3 days there and from what we can garner it’s a small place which may not have a massive amount to do. Although it sounds 'cooler’ than Denver I doubt if it wasn’t ...

    Last stop in Boulder and the first step East

    A travel blog entry by alexofhare on Jun 09, 2014

    ... a hot shovel, steps out to go buy more smokes while his friend cranks up the gangster rap to 11 so I can enjoy it. I promptly left.

    That was, for the most part, the most interesting thing that happened to me that day. I spent the night at a rest stop on I-80 just outside of Grand Island, Nebraska. It was surprisingly comfortable, sleeping in the back of my Subaru Outback. But only really as a last resort.
