Great place to stay if you are going to a concert at Red Rocks. A bit pricey, but very clean, comfortable rooms right on the river. Fun to walk around Golden, tour Coors (3 beers at the end, wow!), and watch folks tubing down the river. The front desk was very helpful, and there was plenty of parking (free) which... More

This was my first time visiting and I'm quite impressed. My room was excellent, the service was good, and the restaurant was amazing. Even if you don't stay here you should consider going for breakfast, it was incredible. The room was fine, pretty standard but clean and luxurious. The bed was a 4/5. I really enjoyed the views as well... More

The hotel has a somewhat industrial brick exterior. The front staff were exceptionally welcoming. The room is mediocre but provides the expected basics. The king bed was comfortable. My room overlooked a mountain river. The hotel builders failed to build terraces overlooking it to really enjoy it. There are multiple watering holes and restaurants nearby in this immaculate city. The... More

We have stayed at the Golden Hotel several times and really liked it however this last stay we were a little disappointed. We felt they were not up to their usual standards we experienced in the past. Our room was not ready for us until about an hour after check-in time. When we ordered our breakfast they informed me when... More

The super friendly and helpful front desk staff loaned me an umbrella so I could walk up to the CSM campus in the rain, gave me late check out and provided first aid supplies when I needed them. Listened to a great concert on the patio by the river and had some of the best friend green tomatoes I've ever... More

Although advertised as non smoking, this is not enforced. Staff opinions about this policy vary so it depends who is on duty as to how well nonsmoking is enforced. Managers not on duty on the evenings when smoking occurs so no enforcement at this time.

The location is perfect for this hotel and the staff is wonderful. The room was large but the decor is rather dated and the bathroom rather small. This is our second stay here and we would definately come back. Highly recommend the restaurant as well. No charge for parking and the free wifi worked perfectly.

This hotel is lovely. I was told that they had recently remodeled the rooms. We had a regular Double room that was not huge, but comfortable. The only thing we did not like about the room itself was the very small vanity/sink. Our room overlooked Washington Street and at times we could hear all the noise from the street. Get... More

We had a great wedding and I just wanted to say hats off to the Golden Hotels staff. Everyone of them was attentive, sensitive to the guest and their special request, several stayed in rooms and raved about the stay. Oh and the food, wonderful and served so well from presentation to selection and taste! I'd highly recommend them!!!
