Far from downtown Boulder

Carpet and curtains in need of updating
Quite possibly the most affordable property in Boulder, the Twin Lakes Inn is a budget hotel that looks a bit like a youth hostel and is geared toward
extended-stay guests. Rooms -- though simple and a little dated -- all have private
bathrooms and there's a communal kitchen. As it's situated in a residential area away from the popular Pearl Street and the University of Colorado, a car
is probably necessary to get around, although there are bus stops nearby.
Budget hotel with youth hostel ambience including communal kitchen and laundry
Housed in what from the outside looks like an old, two-story
apartment complex, the Twin Lakes Inn is a youth hostel-style property with
several home-like facilities for long-term guests. The lobby is a simple space with a front desk, a few small tables and chairs, a small room
with a vending and an ice machine, and bookshelves stocked with a take-one,
leave-one book exchange. The hallways are bare but clean and the
breakfast room is a DIY operation with containers of cereal, a toaster, a coffeemaker, and a glass box of pastries. There's a large communal kitchen with two
stoves and ovens, dishwasher, lots of cupboard space, a full-sized refrigerator, and a large dining table. Outside, there's a small patio and gazebo as well as a
barbecue for guest use and covered hot tub.
Near Gunbarrel, a 10-minute drive from downtown Boulder
Situated in a residential area in the northeastern corner of
Boulder, Twin Lakes Inn is about five miles or a 10-minute drive from the
popular pedestrian shopping area Pearl Street and a 15-minute drive from the
University of Colorado campus. The closest ski area -- Eldora Mountain Resort -- is about 50 minutes away by car, or an hour and 45 minutes by bus. There's a bus stop
a two-minute walk from the hotel as well as a recreation path via which
downtown Boulder can be reached by bicycle in about 20 minutes. The nearest
grocery story is a four-minute drive or 20-minute walk away.
Clean and spacious rooms with old carpet and curtains and tube-style TVs
There are 33 rooms at the Twin Lakes Inn, each of which is spacious and has a surprisingly
comfortable queen- or king-sized bed and a private bathroom. The carpets, curtains, and TVs appear date back to the 1980s and are due for an update. All rooms have microwaves and mini-fridges as well as free Wi-Fi access. Some rooms have two queen
beds and a sofa bed and can sleep up to six people. One room has a full-size kitchen. All rooms have basic but clean bathrooms with shower/tub combos. Past guests have complained about noise issues between units. Rooms can be rented by the week or
month at a discounted rate.
Free breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking plus hot tub, communal kitchen, and free access to nearby gym
The Twin Lakes Inn offers free parking, Wi-Fi access, and a covered outdoor hot tub. Guests can help themselves to a continental breakfast of cereal, pastries, coffee, and juice and there's a full-sized communal kitchen and a coin-operated laundry area for guest use. Although there's no gym, all guests get a free pass to a nearby athletic club. There's also a playground and small
park right outside, as well as an outdoor patio, a gazebo, and a communal barbecue.
