Recent guest reviews

Hotel smells like something is dead inside ..even room we got smell like it mold or like a damp floor ..it didn't smell right .even air/ heater unit was really old ..all lettering worn off .just over all it wasn't the motel I would recommend to friends ..or I myself stay there again ..even at night the sing out by street was not light up ..so it really hard to fine at night time ..

DO NOT STAY HERE - dirty and will not refund even if there are bed bugs.

They couldn't find any reservation for me - booked over Orbitz - already the third case on that day they said. But I've paid for the room and had to find another hotel - I found one accross the street with a horribel smoker room, so I paid twice!!! :/

Staff makes you sign a sheet with cost of all items in room stating if towels, tv remote or damage etc is done to room you will be charged. I asked upon my leaving date for an employee to view my room before I left to sign off on my room and they refused too. Had to take pictures to make sure I don't get charged. Elevator quit working through 2nd out of 3rd day of my stay. Location is okay overall along with room. Don't stay here unless you need too.

Out-dated and old. Floor was sticky inside our room, the bathroom shower was stained bad. And our door did not lock properly unless you slammed it several times. When the cleaning people came thru they didnt shut our door and it was left visibly open all day. The people could be a little more pleasant.

Bathroom was dirty. Hair all over. Bad smell on the floor we stayed. It served its purpose for an overnight but could definitely have been better.

The Howard Johnson in Wheat Ridge, Colorado was not a comfortable or enjoyable stay for us. The beds were very uncomfortable, and the rest of the customers were a little scary to be around. Half of the hotel guests lived in the hotel, and it was a little scary for us to leave our room. It stank, we found multiple stray hairs (NOT ours) in the bed, and half of the appliances were broken. I would not recommend staying at this hotel.

I was expecting a nice Howard Johnson not a motel 6.

The staff is rude and furniture in rooms are broken. I thought Howard Johnson was careful on who managed their facilities. Not worth your money

our shower didn't work drain was clogged told the staff and nothing was done

They ask for a $100 deposit never mentioned during booking. Staff is rude and curses at guests. Hotel is disgusting. It is filthy and dirty all hours of the day. WIFI shotty. Cable is very limited. Floor of room sticky. Not ideal for anyone especially someone on business.

Not good was very poor service and rude owner. Would never recommend it to no one

Room smelled like someone literally died in it. Troubleshot down to something in the bathroom ceiling, so i shut the door and left the fan on. No toilet paper in the bathroom either. Aside from that, it was a cozy sleep and decent area, close to many restaurants and activities. Great value as well.

We first arrived and saw this really creepy looking guy standing out front of the hotel. As we were walking in he follows us in and stands next to the check in counter where he just stares at us! The lady behind the counter was not pleastent and very rude to us. We arrive to our room and notice there's burn holes and slashes in the blankets ?!? The worst part was the creepy guy would lurk in the hallways and as we were walking by him not even looking at him he would say "what are you looking at?!?!" He had a room a couple of rooms down from us and he literally kept his door open and just stared at people as they walked by. IT WAS SO CREEPY!!! My boyfriend and my friend were walking in one night and he starts chasing them yellling " HEY HEY HEY!!!" Apparently the guy LIVES there. It was the weirdest experience ive ever had staying at a hotel. The only thing that made the stay decent was the noodle shop next to it, very friendly nice people with amazing food!

Deposit was double what website quoted. Only one member of the front desk was nice. She was an older lady. Very sweet and kind. All the others were rude and had huge attitudes. Makes me not want to stay there again.

View is great location isn't bad.rooms are better than motel 6

Never will stay here again. Not what I expected.

It was good. Convenient to all of places that we have to be at for our family.

Will never stay there again. Dirty rooms with hair all over your bed and blankets. TV broke and was never fixed. Just a nasty place to stay.

Near I-70 and good enough for an overnight. It's not deluxe, but the towels were clean, and we slept well. This is located across from a gas station, and near an adult store. It has been maintained, but just enough to get by. We could stay there again. It would not be my first choice. The parking is easy access and there is an elevator. There are no lights in the parking lot. The ceiling of the shower area had a sloppy patch job. Breakfast of cereal, milk, bread and watermelon was basic, but fresh.
