The Perfect Vacation

4.6 on July 09, 2014

The Alps Boulder Canyon Inn is perfectly situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It's just minutes from the great hiking trails in the Chautauqua Park and shopping and dining of the downtown Boulder Pearl Street area. The Inn was well decorated, the room was great, the fire places lit. There were porches and patios. The bed was comfy. The inn was well run with a helpful but unobtrusive staff. The breakfast fare was tasty but limited to two choices. I think the option of a couple of eggs with bacon would have been nice. All in all, my wife and I are very happy that we stayed at the Alps Boulder Canyon Inn. We'll recommend it to friends and come back for another stay.

Nice B&B in beautiful location

3.0 on May 30, 2014

Nice bed and breakfast in great location! Only 3 miles from downtown Boulder. The inn is a bit outdated and needs maybe fresh paint job. We actually got upgraded to nicer room with jacuzzi which was a very nice surprise. Our room was lacking small cabinet in the bathroom to put toiletries in - it's my only complaint. Service is very friendly and helpful. Cozy, rustic mountain lodge experience. Beautiful scenery around. Wifi available. They make the best scones I've ever had! You have to hot choices of breakfast, cereal, tea, coffee and orange juice.

Lovely Getaway

My husband and I always enjoy our annual trip here. Such wonderful service, great room (Magnolia) facing the mountains, & a huge bath tub in the middle of the room. It's very romantic and the staff is amazing.

Fabulous Host and Lovely Setting

Elegant rooms, gorgeous victorian property. Super accommodating staff and a great breakfast. A coffee maker in the room would have made this a 25 star review!

A Delightful Rustic Experience

4.6 on March 22, 2013

The Magnolia room was everything we had hoped for- cozy feeling in a spacious suite. We even had a chance to enjoy the in-room soaking tub and fireplace! The people who run the hotel are sweet, attentive, but unimposing and the food was yummy. We booked a room at the Inn in order to take advantage of the proximity to Eldora Mountain Ski Resort, but ended up loving our time there just for its own relaxing atmosphere.
