Rocky Mountain National Park is a short 1:15 drive from Boulder, and 1:45 from Denver. You will need a rental car to get to and from RMNP and it makes travel around the region much easier.
I recommend you find accommodation in Denver, Boulder, or Estes Park (if you want to avoid the commute). There are numerous options and I can provide recommendations based on your budget and desires.
