Howard Johnson Denver/West

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

I literally checked in then out of this hotel. The hallways smelled like both tobacco and marijuana smoke. My "no smoking room" did not seem to be one nor was it what I reserved. The manger or who I assumed was by the name of Jean was rude and unwilling to provide even a partial refund. Jean told me that all hotels were this way in Colorado which I discovered was not true when I left and checked into the Candlewood Suites. I've stayed at Knights Inns that were better than this Howard Johnson!

Central location made it convenient for shopping and other activities off main street.

Hallway smelled bad and room smelled worse. Dog was barking as we walked to our room. It was 11:00 pm. Staff was rude. Wouldn't refund our money but left anyway. It was that bad.

My room was seriously the smallest hotel room I've ever seen, not to mention the bedding was pobably bought in the 70s. We tried to figure out the air conditioner and got literally shocked. The bed frame was old and bigger than the bed so we had to be careful that we didn't stab our ankles on the metal bars poking out from under the mattress. The bed was super uncomfortable and lumpy.

Old tv w weak service. Wifi was horrible even at 2 in d morning. Breakfast was a big step down from comfort inn. Tables at breakfast needed cleaning. Room was cheap but Expected more.

The room was very comfortable, and for the money it was a great value. The breakfast was a nice compliment with the stay. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Honestly the smelliest, filthiest hotel I have ever stayed would not wish on my worst enemy to stay here
