Pros: close to breweries and Old Town, nearby access to bike trails, cheaper than other h/motels in the area, friendly staff Cons: dingy, uncomfortable beds, small rooms I would consider this place the definition of the bare minimum; ANYTHING less and I would not not have stayed there. I was attracted by the relatively low price, its proximity to the... More

After staying for 3 nights , bites started showing on me. I pulled the sheets back and saw 3 bed bugs crawling around. Brought one to the front desk and was told they would change my room and take care of it. Upon coming back from work was told I would not be changing rooms and they had sprayed the... More

Great people that work there. The overall value is why I come back. It's less than half the price of the fancy hotels. Third time now I've stayed there in the last few years. Free morning coffee and bagels. My only real complaint and the reason for only the three stars is the bathroom window in the room I was... More

The area surrounding the hotel was not as I expected . Both I and my friend did not feel comfortable staying here so we continued on our way to Laramie . I called the hotel with my concerns and the person on the other end said well we all ready charge you and would not refund any of my money.... More

We just needed a place to sleep after our late flight into Denver for our trip to Wyoming. The room was average. No bad smells that I could tell. Had hardwood floors and high ceilings with beams which was nice. Bed was ok but not great. Looked like people lived in this motel as one room had a flag over... More

Old, dingy, small, bedding looked like something you'd find at a flee market and use for your dogs bed. The smell in the room was terrible. It smelled like old musty water in a portable air conditioning unit. There is a reason the cancellation policy requires payment 2 days PRIOR to check in! I did not stay in this room,... More

I didn't have issues like past customers. My room had hardwood floors and I thought it was cute little room. I didn't expect much considering the price. My only issue I had was the cops were called apparently looking for someone. Not sure what happened, but I definitely stayed in my room that night.

Do not stay at this "hotel". Rooms are terrible and smell like smoke. I will have to dry clean all my clothes now. Smoke seeps in through bathroom vent and stinks up the whole place. Carpets are disgusting and stinky. People live here and are extremely noisy, music blasting with no concern for guests. They smoke on the balcony and... More

This hotel was not a good place to stay. The whole room and everything in it smelled like smoke, even though it was supposed to be smoke-free. The carpet was awful--stains everywhere! Toilet seat was broken. The only thing in the room that was good was the refrigerator. The ad misrepresented the place. I will never use tripadvisor again!

Stayed 5 nights here. The room was clean. The carpet could use replacement. You get what you pay for. The location was good and in very short walking distance to a gas station and laundromat. There's a large King Soopers grocery store just across the street as well as other shops and places to eat. Not far from the old... More
