“Great location, reasonable price”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

I stayed at the University Inn for a long weekend during Boulder Creek Fest. It is in a perfect location, close to downtown Boulder. Nothing fancy here but the price is right. Free wifi & continental breakfast. Friendly & helpful staff. I recommend it if you are looking for basic lodging in downtown Boulder.

Room Tip: I suggest you select a room on the second floor because the floors tend to creak.

Other reviews led me to choose university inn. People said no frills...they were not kidding. I could tolerate this old school inn but my brother freaked out because it wasn't anything close to a national chain. It appears it attracts some questionable guests (like the hippie dancing in front of my car as soon as I pulled in) but I also saw some nice husband and wife couples just trying to save some money in Colorado. The pool was murky. I would have been very disappointed if I had children with me.

The inn is on par with a standard chain hotel. But it felt like it hasn't been refurbished in quite sometime. It was clean though, and we had a nice stay as we weren't there to spend a lot of time in the room.

We stayed here just one night instead of two because we needed to be in Ft. Collins a day earlier but this was a well placed hotel with the Pearl Street mall just a couple of blocks walk away. Room was clean and pretty quiet; we were in the 2nd floor back, so there was a bit of noise from the bike path and school. No real problem though. The breakfast was truly continental and we went out for more breakfast later. Alfalfa's across the street is a good place for a quick breakfast snack. Staff very friendly.

The University Inn is well-located in Boulder - within convenient walking distance to the CU campus and Pearl Street Mall etc. The property is an older motel design but comfortable and well maintained. If you are a light sleeper request a second floor room since the floors creak when guests walk across them. The Alfalfa Market across the street is a Whole Foods type store and good source of hiking lunches, etc.
