The 54-room mid-range Quality Inn and Suites Boulder Creek is a chain outpost with a bit of funky Western flair. The hotel resembles a woodsy roadside motel, with ground floor windows looking onto the parking lot; second floor rooms are more private. The Quality Inn is the closest hotel to the University of Colorado and Naropa University, and caters to student’s families and alumni. Downtown Boulder is a 10-minute walk away. Rooms are all similar, but comfortable and spacious, with exterior doors. There is an indoor pool and hot tub on-site. THIS HOTEL RE-OPENED AS BASECAMP BOULDER HOTEL ON JUNE 15, 2016. WE WILL UPDATE OUR PHOTOS AND REVIEW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
A roadside motel with Western flair and rustic touches
The Quality Inn and Suites Boulder Creek is laid out like a run-of-the-mill roadside motel, but the evergreen and brick paint job gives the buildings a cozy lodge feeling that is carried into the public areas and rooms. The lobby has a western-themed chandelier and a striking rock fireplace with a coffee station set up beside it. A cool sculpted interpretation of a buffalo head made out of twigs and branches hangs over the mantel. The breakfast room is furnished with wooden tables and chairs and the walls are hung with wildlife photographs. The indoor pool, whirlpool, and sauna are in a lovely building with skylights, brick walls, and lots and lots of dark wood. The atmosphere is relaxing, if a bit dated. The plan is for a major renovation and rebranding of this hotel beginning in November, 2014.
Close to the University of Colorado at Boulder and Naropa University; 10 minutes from downtown
The Quality Inn and Suites Boulder Creek is the closest hotel to the University of Colorado at Boulder and is right next door to Naropa University. The area is quiet, but there are many opportunities for outdoor activity in the immediate vicinity, including several nearby playgrounds for kids. Boulder Creek Path offers hiking and biking a hundred yards from the property, and Eldora Mountain ski area is 21 miles away. Downtown Boulder, including historic Pearl Street mall, restaurants, and bars, is within a 10-minute walk. Parking at the hotel is free.
Spacious and comfortable rooms, with big bathrooms and mountain-themed decor
Rooms at the Quality Inn and Suites Boulder Creek are spacious
and comfortable, with walls painted rust and gold, and sunny yellow bathrooms.
The decor is similar in every room, with mountain touches such as a
rustic chair with bark still on the wood and the seatback upholstered to resemble a
Native American blanket. Beds are big and comfortable with tons of pillows. Bathrooms
are spacious, with marble counters, wooden vanities, huge mirrors, and an abundance
of toiletries in dispensers rather than tiny bottles. Some rooms have
skylights. Microwaves, mini-fridges, and 32-inch flat-screen TVs are provided.
Views are nothing special, and some guests have noted wear and tear in rooms.
Free hot breakfast, afternoon cookies, indoor pool, fitness center, and loaner bikes
The Quality Inn and Suites Boulder Creek serves a free hot
breakfast buffet each morning, and has hot coffee and tea in the lobby 24/7.
Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies are set out as an afternoon pick-me-up. The

peaceful, wood paneled building. There is a fitness center with several cardio
machines and free weights, with a flat-screen TV for entertainment.
