Foot of the Mountain Motel

200 Arapahoe Ave. (Canyon Blvd.) Boulder CO

Simple cottages that maintain their original 1930s charm.

Foot of the Mountain Motel

Established in 1936, this is the oldest continuously operating motel in Boulder. It’s still family run, and in fact the place has only changed hands four times in the last 67 years. It is adjacent to a city park and near Boulder Creek Path, University of Colorado and Pearl Street Mall. This place offers clean, economical, basic accommodations. Each of the original nine cottages once had a kitchen and carport. Today, they have been converted into 18 cozy rooms and one two-bedroom suite, all of which still have the motel’s signature rough-hewn log exteriors with red-scalloped trim. Rooms come with cable TV with HBO, refrigerators and free local calls. Complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate are served in the office. Pets are welcome for an extra $5 per day. Weekly rates are available during the off-season with reduced housekeeping services.
