Recent guest reviews

This hotel is more of a motel. It is in poor condition in a bad part of town. There is lot of foot traffic from the 7-11 next door, including drug users and homeless. The comforters in the room smelled like body odor and we had to get them replaced. It took 24 minutes to do so, because the one staff person waved me off while he was on the phone. Extremely unprofessional. The entire place was dirty and gross. No iron in room, old towels. I wouldn't have eaten the complimentary breakfast if someone paid me.

Nightclubs next door and poor sound insulation make it hard to sleep. The air conditioner didn't work. The security lock on the door was missing. "breakfast" was inedible.

The hotel was OK although it looked a bit shopworn from the outside. Tough Colorado winters I guess. The room was clean, rather spacious, the bed comfortable, and except for the lamp on the nightstand not working and a slow sink drain, all else was functional. Although the free breakfast choices were rather limited, I give kudos to any hotel that offers free breakfast of any kind. The negative was the neighborhood. This area is definitely the seedy part of town. It's all grungy storefronts, some boarded up, and populated by a motley assortment of street people who definitely looked down on their luck. Skid row would be an apt characterization. The hotel has a heavy duty locking iron fence all around it and one can see why. Directly across from the hotel is a check cashing place, a hookah bar and a Wendy's and there's a strip club a block away. Not poster material for the Chamber of Commerce! In broad daylight there were individuals sleeping on sidewalks, and almost always some people of uncertain intentions hanging around on the street. Several times I crossed the street to avoid walking past such groups. I decided I didn't want to be out after dark. If one is an intrepid traveler whose been in some rough cities and you look like a former linebacker, maybe it's no big deal. But for a young family traveling with kids I'm not sure this is the location you want to be in. Too bad because the hotel was OK and near the center of town.

Lacks the basic facilities like iron, water, etc.

The neighbourhood was rough. The linens where clean but had a weird smell. The staff was very nice and happy to help you.

We found bedbugs the third day here. So we spent our last day in Colorado hunting around for Raid and washing our clothes at a laundromat. Completely insufficient parking, and rude night staff. Had several roving packs of loca homeless men harass us throughout our stay. Never again, disgusting place.

I couldn't have picked a better location. I had never been to Denver before. So I wasn't sure where to stay. But this basic hotel is close to everything my girl & I wanted to see. It's close to bars, botanical garden, vegan restaurants! Love staying here.

This neighborhood definitely isn't the greatest. There were a lot of homeless people in the immediate area around the hotel, so this isn't for family or even a couples getaway. It's a place to stay that isn't too expensive and is still downtown. I was here on a business trip, and when my colleague picked me up (who lives in Denver), he said "so, where'd you find the Crack House?" Funny, but kinda true... If you're just looking for a place to sleep because you're seeing some shows at The Fillmore or The Ogden (both right across the street), then this location is great! It really isn't too far walking distance from the Downtown area. On my last day I was able to walk from the Convention Center through the Capitol Hill district to my hotel, which took about an hour or so with stops (I could probably have done it in 30 minutes walking). On another day I was able to simply walk up 17th street (Colfax, where the hotel is on, is 15th) and went on my own little pub crawl with so many different bars and restaurants to stop in and check out. Denver is a great town! But if you stay here, understand it's just for a place to sleep and nothing more. Nothing was really "wrong" with this location, but it wasn't top notch. You get what you pay for! BTW, the "breakfast" is just cereal, toast and muffins. And most all bars stop serving food at 10 (found that out the hard way).

Was just ok. Liquid soap and hand cream were half used. Tall light in room didn't work. Lots of skiddish people coming up to me off the street when I was standing outside the front door. Room seemed fairly clean. Good location. Staff was very friendly. Coffee was good, the breakfast wasn't very good.

My friend and I booked this hotel because it was cheaper than those downtown, but now regret our decision. The room was old and run-down. We were within walking distance to the downtown area which was nice, but had to pass by a section of town well known for its amount of homeless people - something we didn't know as out-of-towners. I wouldn't say we didn't feel safe or that we were in danger by any means, but staying somewhere downtown would have been wiser.

I was unsatisfied with this stay and won't ever return and I'm a college student with almost no expectations if that doesn't turn you away I don't know what will

Very adequate for short stay,no frills but standard. Thumbs up

Breakfast dried up around 0800, even though its supposed to go longer, most the items had been depleted. But that didnt harm the stay. Beds were fine. Room was clean. Its on Colfax, which is a weird street. Not dangerous, but just kinda weird and dirty, a little crazy. Entertaining. Lets call it entertaining. Walking around at 2am there are still a lot of people hanging around.

Hotel reception very helpful and pleasant, Continental breakfast very pleasing, room was well appointed, internet was extremely slow, unable to complete required tasks on time. Wi-Fi needs to be faster than .62 Mbps

All the front desk employees were quite friendly and it's literally across the street from the Odgen Theatre, which was the source of our stay in Denver and the reason we selected this hotel. It's a pretty crappy building but fine if you're looking for a cheap stay right by the Odgen. Its location in Colfax IS also a pretty good location to get to various sites and restaurants.

Nice big room. Area south of the hotel is the best. The complimentary breakfast filled this 230 pound guy up. Just wished it had laundry. They did fax something for me.

Stayed three nights for two shows at the Fillmore, which is right across the street and on the corner. Ogden theater is directly across the street as well. Location is not in the best neighborhood, but we had no problems. Decent restaurants within walking distance as well. Only complaint is that after stocking up at the Argonaut Liquors, the ice machine which had worked our first night was broken and the desk clerk said they couldn't fix it but had to wait on another one...foam cooler and ice at 7-11 solved the problem. Overall, desk staff was nice and helpful and the room was old with an odd smell but clean. Perfect hotel for concerts at Ogden, Fillmore, or Bluebird, but otherwise I'd stay elsewhere in a nicer area with more to offer.

Inadequate parking meant leaving the car on the street. Nice walk to the Capitol Mall.

The hotel is good value for money, great staff and breakfast. Location good too. Room ok. Booked king and got two doubles. One bed had hair and a blood spot so slept in the other. Coffee machine nice touch, shame there was a used coffee bag in it thought. Bath towel rail was ripped off the wall and not repaired. Toilet roll holder had a finished roll. Good thin there was a spare on the cistern. Hallway was exposed to main street so some traffic noise. I had air con on fan only to mask the noise.

Great location within easy walking distance to everything you want to see. Staff was friendly and overall awesome. best value for your money in relation to proximity to downtown. I would return if ever in Denver again
