I stayed here for two nights. The beds are very comfortable, and the room has good views. We were overlooking elitch gardens, and is right next to the stadium. The top floor restaurant was pretty good, and again has amazing views. The only letdown was the shuttle. It does not run to a timetable and is there for whenever you... More

At best, it's more like 3-star-worthy, judging from its worn exterior and dated appliances. However, if you take into account the price, location, service, and awesome views - it bumps itself to 4 stars. We got our reservation for extremely cheap through a third party online booking site. Due to that fact, we weren't really expecting anything spectacular - just... More

We booked this place through a website other than the hotel's so the cost was good for being right outside of Denver and next to Broncos Stadium. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and very friendly, from the front desk to the shuttle drivers. The outside pool area was nicely kept. The rooms however were another story. Had I paid... More

Overall this hotel met my needs for an affordable overnight in Denver. It is not really walkable to downtown, but I did jog down there one morning. There is a shuttle though. The room and hallways were dated, but everything was fine. Wifi worked, which was enough for me. The lounge on the top floor provides a fabulous view of... More

This hotel has the potential to be so much better than it is. The hotel front desk staff all very friendly and nice. Wifi is very slow and intermittent, doesn't always work, the hotel often smelled of marijuana and sometimes stale smoke on a number of floors which seeped into our room. The worst bit we found was the cleaners,... More

This hotel has a convenient location to downtown, but would not be my first choice. Parts of the rooms have been remodeled, but it is mixed with the old. My room had newer furniture, but very old and stained carpet. Also, the hotel is on the highway (Both a plus and minus). Expect road noise.

The only problem I had staying here was the WiFi which kept dropping out every five minutes which is not a huge issue. The food from restaurant was delicious (I recommend the steak) The hotel shuttle bus came in handy, but also I found that I was able to walk to most places I wanted to go within half an... More

I asked if our room had a mini fridge, Omar said no, but we will get you one!! :-) Great customer... More

We booked months in advance but when we arrived at the hotel at 2.30am we were told that they had double booked and there was no room for us. We had booked 2 nights in June and and one night in July all in advance so when I enquired further I was simply told "you are not the only person... More

The rooms were okay . The location was good if you want to go to the football stadium next door . The best thing for me was the shuttle driver Juan , who went out of his way to make sure we had a pleasant dinner and came back to get us afterwards . I would have stayed there on... More
