Drove the extra miles to get away from the hustle of Banff and to enjoy some amazing food in Golden. But the hotel was a farce! Firstly I booked into the golden Village hotel which is next door there had been some sort of take over as a kind Asian gentleman said the reception was now his house and I... More

Bathroom floor dirty; Kleenex on floor. chips from supposed renovation swept against wall. Neighbors above smoking on balcony and flicking ashes on our vehicle. First impression walking in was that it was a dive.

We booked through Expedia, and when we arrived, the room was filthy. It smelled like mildew, there was yellow insulation foam all over the floor, there was hairs on the bed and small droppings of some sort by the fridge. Looked like insulation of some sort, but a whole pile of it. There were water ring marks on the nightstand,... More

Dear Kt773: Thanks for your comments on TA. Please be assured that I am taking your complaints very seriously. I am terribly sorry to learn about the state of your room upon your arrival.
