      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!!

      ... conclusion that we would only hike in a couple miles and get a feel for it before dark and unfortunately not make it to the hot springs. It was so hard to see everyone's smiling face as they arrived back at the parking lot, saying how amazing it was up there. We decided I would just have to come back so we could do the hike another time. So at any rate, we started off on our shorter hike and we hadn't gone more than 50 feet before we were in complete awe of where we were. ...

      Freaky Friday on the First Flat Iron

      ... up to the base of the 1st Flat Iron, which if you have not done that little hike, it's quite a huffer!

      We made it to the rock before a 3-person group who was also wanting to climb the same route as us. We were going to climb the Direct Route on the First Flat Iron which is a 5.6 climb with very little protection, 10 pitches, and over 1000 feet high.

      The weather was bright and sunny and hot! Ben started up the climb and after he set up his belay on ...

      We arrived and it was now a nice warm night. Everyone was drinking in the parking lot but seeing as we didn’t know anyone and I quite wanted to see all the bands (not too bothered about Chromeo) we went straight in. We were right to bring the flask, beers were 8.50 which in normal circumstances wouldn’t be bad but we’ve been used to pay 3-5 dollars for beers up to this point. I got a coke and mixed the vodka with it and we watched ...

      Today I got to ride with the Bruce Rogers. In 1987 he rode his bike across the country by himself on the first ever Journey of Hope. Had some great conversations with him today and then we got to play quad rugby. Quad rugby is for paraplegics and a growing thing in the United states. Today we played with the Denver Harlequins. They taught us the rules and then let us strap into some of their chairs and play with them! In all another great ...

We then went on one of our wanders, called into McDonalds (yep classy again!!), we then went along the main shopping street 16 St Mall. Unfortunately it was soooo crowded it was claustrophobic! Denver was hosting the 2013 Zombie Crawl, was good fun seeing everyone dressed ...
