We stayed here overnight to attend a football game at Folsom Field. The staff was friendly, warm, and helpful and extremely responsive to our requests for an ice bucket and champagne flutes. Breakfast was wonderful. Low key ambiance, but that's exactly what we wanted. Bed was super comfortable, room was clean, everything was perfect - no issues at all. In... More

Not fancy, but comfy and cozy. I stayed for two nights, solo, en route to a business meeting. Everything was on point: staff, room, location, parking, breakfast, tea trays, cookies and breads, meditation room. Easy drive from DIA. Moderate walk to Pearl street mall - snarfburger is really close as is a big shopping center. I also drove down to... More

This was our second visit to this wonderful B&B right in the heart of Boulder and we were not disappointed. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the owner and staff who took genuine interest in our reason for visiting and making us feel welcome. Later when we returned from dinner, we were surprised by a dozen roses and gourmet... More

The staff were very helpful but only one introduced herself to us. They were responsive to our requests. The owners don't live on site, we saw one owner once and he didn't introduce himself either. We had to ask if he was the owner. The B&B is on a very busy road. There is close access to a lovely walk... More

Our room, on the ground floor was lovely and spacious. There are a few restaurants for dinner within a few blocks. Breakfast was good with a few options. Would... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find Briar Rose so convenient. It's a short walk to Pearl Street or the 29th Street mall. The house is charming and the staff is most accommodating. I had some dietary restrictions which they met and breakfast was delicious. I also love their commitment to health and the environment which is reflected in the menu... More

I have stayed at every hotel in Boulder and was looking for something a little different. I really liked the Briar Rose and will stay again. The room was a bit dated but the bed was comfortable.

We arrived at 9:15 their time and found the place locked up tight. A sign on the door invited us to call for the onsite manager. No answer. No problem... There was the number of the owner to call just in case... Still no answer. We waited about 30 minutes outside wondering what to do with paid confirmation in hand...... More

We are so sorry at the trouble when you arrived. It was plain and simple human error. And while it is a late response, a better explanation of the issue is that the night staff person accidentally put the wrong name on the envelope (that was intended for you) on the door, and the other staff person who arrived was...

We were in Boulder on business to go to a concert at the Boulder Theater. This B&B is close enough to walk to downtown in about 15 minutes. We stayed in the Cameron room with the balcony.

I stayed at the very conveniently located Briar Rose for 1 night in early July. My room was very comfortable with a hall bathroom (but it was for my use only). The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star rating is because the manager did not offer to help me carry my bags up the stairs to... More
