“Amazing for the price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Amazing staff. Very helpful. Awesome free shuttle service there within a half hour. And when I stayed it was fully booked. Great view and burgers at the restraint at top. Great steal for the price. The area is just like any major city. Only down side is you are out of downtown denver so you need to plan well.

If you have to attend a convention downtown this is a great alternative. I shuttle will take and pick you up. Restaurant was good. View was fun. Free wifi and parking. The shuttle will take you in a three mile radio us. This is enough to see all the downtown sights. A microwave would have been nice.

Can't beat the location, adjacent to I25, and on the edge of the Highlands area. Less than 100yds to Mile High Stadium. Rooms are pretty dated, WiFi is adequate. The rooms are clean, but I saw a bag of trash next to the service elevator that had not moved in 12 hrs. Dogs are welcome, which was helpful. The staff was very friendly and helpful, shuttle available for rides inside a 3 mile radius. Based on location alone, I would stay here again, mostly because I wasn't in the room except to sleep.

Room Tip: This is tough, awesome city view comes with lots of noise from the interstate. Looking at the pool c...

Nice and clean hotel, for less money then compared to downtown Denver. Free shuttle but you had to wait for over 1/2 hour sometimes. Wish you could pre-arrange shuttle service. Had to make it to the train and had to leave way early to be sure getting to the station in time.. Most staff were very friendly, except check out clerk in the early morning. Restaurant at the top of the building. Did not use it but it had a great view.

Handy hotel on the outskirts of Denver. Rooms basic but clean and comfortable. Great shuttle service,running up until 11pm which will pick you up anywhere in the city within a few minutes of your call.
Internet very slow
Needs updating but ok just for a stopover

I got this hotel through hotwire, you know, pay first and then you will know the hotel you're staying in. I spent the 7 weeks previous to my stay dreading the hotel due the reviews here. I arrived to the hotel and it was great. True, the internet sucks, but the room was clean and nice, the staff was friendly, the shuttle service awesome, and the restaurant upstairs, excellent. So I guess every people experience is different... glad my experience was fine.

This place is terrible. My husband stayed there for business last week. He was checked into a room by the front desk, but given a key to another room. He settled into the room that he thought was his and went about his work plans. The next day, he returned to his room at 9pm to find it completely cleared out. The front desk had no clue what had happened, but they were eventually able to determine that housekeeping thought his room was supposed to be vacant. SO THEY EMPTIED IT OUT, and placed all of his belongings in the housekeeping managers office...which of course no one but that person has a key to. My husband's flight left before that person was back at work, so he asked them to ship him his belongings. Which they did - standard mail, with a COD label - so we had to pay $24 on delivery to even get his things. I am infuriated by this idea that when a hotel makes a mistake they assume zero responsibility and put the cost on the their guest. Never staying here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.
