We have stayed at the Briar Rose B&B for the past 6 years to celebrate Marie's Birthday. This year she is 100! The room is always cozy and clean. We look forward to the assortment of teas and homemade cookies and breads available. We love to relax in front of a fire after an amazing dinner at The Boulder Dushanbe...

We stayed 3 nights in September before flying out from DIA. This is a lovely, peaceful B&B in a good location. Breakfast was delicious! We ate one morning at a communal table and it was fun speaking with other guests. The room was smaller than expected, especially as we had two large suitcases, but we didn't spend a lot of...

So glad you had a good time staying with us in September. Your review is very appreciated and will definitely be helpful to future guests considering staying with us.

We stayed here overnight to attend a football game at Folsom Field. The staff was friendly, warm, and helpful and extremely responsive to our requests for an ice bucket and champagne flutes. Breakfast was wonderful. Low key ambiance, but that's exactly what we wanted. Bed was super comfortable, room was clean, everything was perfect - no issues at all. In...

Not fancy, but comfy and cozy. I stayed for two nights, solo, en route to a business meeting. Everything was on point: staff, room, location, parking, breakfast, tea trays, cookies and breads, meditation room. Easy drive from DIA. Moderate walk to Pearl street mall - snarfburger is really close as is a big shopping center. I also drove down to...

This was our second visit to this wonderful B&B right in the heart of Boulder and we were not disappointed. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the owner and staff who took genuine interest in our reason for visiting and making us feel welcome. Later when we returned from dinner, we were surprised by a dozen roses and gourmet...

The staff were very helpful but only one introduced herself to us. They were responsive to our requests. The owners don't live on site, we saw one owner once and he didn't introduce himself either. We had to ask if he was the owner. The B&B is on a very busy road. There is close access to a lovely walk...

I was pleasantly surprised to find Briar Rose so convenient. It's a short walk to Pearl Street or the 29th Street mall. The house is charming and the staff is most accommodating. I had some dietary restrictions which they met and breakfast was delicious. I also love their commitment to health and the environment which is reflected in the menu...

I have stayed at every hotel in Boulder and was looking for something a little different. I really liked the Briar Rose and will stay again. The room was a bit dated but the bed was comfortable.

We arrived at 9:15 their time and found the place locked up tight. A sign on the door invited us to call for the onsite manager. No answer. No problem... There was the number of the owner to call just in case... Still no answer. We waited about 30 minutes outside wondering what to do with paid confirmation in hand......

We are so sorry at the trouble when you arrived. It was plain and simple human error. And while it is a late response, a better explanation of the issue is that the night staff person accidentally put the wrong name on the envelope (that was intended for you) on the door, and the other staff person who arrived was...
