“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

My two sons and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Aurora, CO on December 23, 2011 and found it to be an extraordinary value. It seemed brand new, very clean and modern. Our room had two queen beds which were very comfortable and the room was spacious, even the bathroom which seemed larger than normal. The free breakfast was ample and the room included free wifi. The staff was courteous and helpful, especially Mark, who was kind enough to retrieve and hold for me the coat and shoes that I left in the closet a full 8 hours after checking out! I picked them up a week later without problem. The closet can be mistaken for a full length mirror, so make sure you remember any personal items that you or members of your party may place there. Very nice hotel, especially at such a reasonable price. Also, very close to the airport.

My husband and I flew in just for one night on a quick trip to Aurora. We got to the hotel and they gave us an early check in, and up to our room we went. The room was a nice size. We had a king size bed, desk, couch, table and fridge. All was good. Even a lot of restaurants close by. When it was time to go to bed, thinks just got bad.
There were long black hair in between the sheets. There were a lot like housekeeping did not change the sheets. Needless to say we did not sleep in the bed.
So what started out great ended not so great.

When we arrived the gentleman at the front counter was not very friendly. The room was fine. We checked for bed bugs but didn't find any. The beds were really uncomfortable and we did not sleep well.

One complaint wasthe air conditioning would cycle and click throughout the night. Made for a challanging sleep. But all in all it was bearable. Good Hot Breakfast each morning and helpful staff. We stayed for 3 nights, while car was repaired and checking out new IKEA in Denver Tech Area. Beds were nice and comfy. We missed out on evening socials where they provided Fazoli's which was nice. I was impressed with the cleaniness of our room. Flat screen tv, updated room was nice as well!

Note: No hot tub. Did not use the outdoor pool.

Room Tip: Nice room for the money

Overall this hotel is centrally located, clean, and new design. Rooms were very quiet.

Check in - Long line at check in due to a large number of airline passengers having difficulty checking in, the computer system was obviously not cooperating but this caused a significant delay. Check-in staff rushed through my check-in, but was courteous enough.

Room - Room was clean and quiet.

Breakfast - Very disorganized, stayed 2 mornings for breakfast and both morning they consistently ran out of items during the posted breakfast hours. At one point there were no eggs, biscuits, pancakes, or cinnamon rolls available.. and this was 30 minutes prior to the advertised end of breakfast. The breakfast area and lobby was quite nicely designed however.

After checking out we decided to stay in the Denver area one more night, and we decided to try the Holiday Inn Express in Wheat Ridge (west side of Denver) and were much more impressed.

Overall, not a bad stay, but not an excellent one either.

Just got back from a 1 night stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The rooms were clean and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave in the room. The free breakfast included more or less standard fare (eggs, cereal, yogurt) as well as a machine that prepared fresh pancakes. The staff was very friendly and responsive to our needs. Got a great price on Priceline ($45 plus taxes and fees). Would not hesitate to stay there again!

I travel often for work and it was a very pleasant suprise how clean this hotel was. It was also a very pleasant surprise how friendly the staff was (i.e. they acknowledge you in the morning by saying good morning) The receptionist (Christy) at the front desk was so accomading and friendly when I chekcked in that she made me feel like I was at home. The room I stayed in was spacious and had a couch, LCD tv, microwave and refrigerator (bar size). I was also happy with the continental breakfast. They had a variety of things to choose from to get me ready for my day. In the evening if you're looking for something to eat there is an Outback and Carrabba's very close. I didn't do it, but I saw on one of the channels that the Carrabba's will deliver food to the hotel. There isn't room service, but the local restaurants in the vicinity will deliver. Overall, I enjoyed my stayed, it was clean, quiet, the staff was freindly that made my two night stay enjoyable. Thanks Christy!
