"Solid Accommodations, Though Weathered"
This, as my title indicates, is an older hotel, but I found the room/hotel surroundings comfortable. It is located off the main street into Boulder, 28th Street, to the left side of U.S. 36 West. The grounds around the hotel are fairly extensive for walking and catching a wonderful view of The Flatirons. The room showed some age, but the essentials are in place to make for a reasonably comfortable stay. One slight drawback was that the room clock/radio had an inoperable alarm so I relied on a wake-up call, courtesy of the front desk. I did not eat in the hotel restaurant this visit to Boulder. The hotel is strategically located so that one can exit the property and execute a left turn on Colorado from 28th Street and drive one block east, turn left, drive another block north, and turn left again, in effect, "squaring" 28th Street. Doing this maneuver will put you on Arapahoe, or you can drive another block north and line up with Canyon, which will take you westward toward the Pearl Street Mall. The hotel is quiet, for the most part, at night, and set back far enough from the traffic on 28th Street, that a guest cannot hear any street noise. One word of caution for new visitors to Boulder: when driving, be very careful to yield the right-of-way to bicyclists and skateboarders, such as when exiting the hotel property onto 28th Street. This is a constant hazard throughout much of Boulder, and typically the bicyclists/skateboarders are UC students going to class.
