LOCATION! Right before the start of the foothills yet walking distance to downtown Boulder and the Boulder Public Library. Not in the typical plastic, busy motel area (which is in a different part of town). Park and leave your car and walk to the most interesting parts of Boulder and to tons of restaurants and shops. Not a super-modern motel, a bit funky, which I liked. Take-and-go breakfast was pretty good--orange juice, coffee, muffins, hard boiled eggs, bagels. Would have liked a bit more healthful items (e.g., granola or muesli), but there were reasonably healthful alternatives along with the sugar-laden stuff.
My room had a cooler (needed, oddly, even though cool at night, probably because of built up heat from the afternoon sun), and it was very noisy. I think some rooms have normal a/c and that all rooms may have it soon.

The best Location in Boulder for outdoor walking and hiking with a view that makes the price worth every penny! Very cozy rooms that give you the rustic feel of a cabin, very comfy. Had an awesome stay.
With a stay at Foot of the Mountain Motel in Boulder (Central Boulder), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Pearl Street Mall and University of Colorado-Boulder. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, luggage storage, and a library. Free self parking is available onsite.
