“Spectacular hotel for the price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We recently went to Denver for a Broncos game. We looked on hotels.com and read dozens of reviews at tons of hotels. Many reviews scared me away. We wanted a hotel with a shuttle to the game to avoid traffic. This hotel takes you to many destinations within 5 miles for FREE. The hotel was very clean. The beds are awesome! The bed felt new, it had a down quilt. So so comfy!! I have NEVER slept so well in a hotel. There was a little road noise, but with the a/c on, we didn't hear the cars. Speaking of a/c, it was not your typical noisy unit attached to the wall. It was vented through the walls, just like in a house. It was much quieter and worked very well. The bed sheets seemed brand new, the pillows were really cushy. We were nervous about the price of this hotel, but ended up being very pleasantly surprised!! The staff was AMAZING. The hot breakfast was really good! nice variety, and free too! The shuttle was great. We went to the Broncos game, Elitch Gardens, and the 16th Street Mall. When you're ready, you call the hotel and ask for pickup. Be ready at the designated pickup spot, and they were always there for us in 10 minutes or less. That may not always be the case, due to traffic/construction/lots of people.... They did their best, and we loved it. It's not a high class area, but our car was fine out in the lot, and we had no problems. Next time we're in Denver, we won't even look at another hotel. This is where we'll stay!

Excellent place to stay in downtown Denver if you are taking advantage of downtown attractions. They provide a free shuttle service as long as you request it one hour in advance of your departure. We used it to go to a game at Coors Field. They give you a number to call when you want to be picked up. Hotel was very clean and appeared to be recently renovated. Staff was professional and friendly. Nice breakfast choices. Very pet-friendly hotel with only a small fee. Be aware that there are specific floors for pets. Because we did not call ahead to say we were bringing a dog we could not get into the kind of room we had reserved. They did put us in another type of room for the same price. Overall I would really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you book online and bring a pet, call ahead to confirm room type

Hotel was clean. Rooms were quiet. Nice hot complimentary breakfast with plenty of variety. Friendly staff. Free shuttle was very nice to have going downtown to a game. We would stay here again as the price for value was very good.

We had to move our son to college so we needed a place to stay that wasn't too far from Downtown Denver, but not too expensive. This Quality Inn really was great. The area is a little industrial but for Denver, it is pretty quick on and off the freeway. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hot breakfast buffet is great! We realized I had booked a King with 2 adults, but when we got their I figured that our son would need to stay with us at least 2 nights before staying in his Campus apartment. They quickly changed us to a room with 2 Queens, did not charge us any extra and never asked when he would come or go. Also, they had a refrigerator and microwave brought up to our room upon request...in 15 min from when we asked. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. There is a shuttle too and from the airport, there is free parking and although it is old, it is a fine place to stay. You do have noise from the freeway, but we don't mind it, it is "white noise" us!

Room Tip: We preferred being on the side where you are facing the freeway or the city. The other side has the...

Got a good rate and decided to stay here to save some money. The first room we got was a double but I had booked a king. It was okay but the garbage was on that side and the trucks woke us up at 4am. They switched us to a King room because they had made a mistake however I wished the whole trip we had our double beds back b/c the king bed sank in the middle. My husband and I were fighting to stay on our edge of the bed b/c it was so miserable and sunken in. Both rooms were stuffy and smelly. They seemed clean enough. We never got a good night sleep though b/c of the bed. I will say that it was quiet we never heard any noise.

The shuttle was mediocre. One time it worked great with a really helpful driver and the other time they said they were around the corner and never showed up.
The free breakfast was the same every day and consisted of scrambled eggs, sliced ham, biscuits and gravy, canned fruit, yogurt, waffle (make yourself) and english muffins. It was decent but got old. It was always crowded and some of the people staying at this hotel were not the cleanest looking.

The location made it easy to get on the highway for our day trips to Colorado springs and Boulder.

All in all I would not stay here again but if you find a good rate and are willing to make some sacrifices it may be worth it.

We stayed here recently for one night. We thought it was a very good hotel. Our GPS told us that it was across the street from its real location, but luckily the hotel is a high rise so we were able to see it and easily figure out how to get across the train tracks. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The outdoor pool seemed very inviting (we did not go in). The fitness room was good, with a tv and an open door to the pool area. It had an elliptical machine, a bike and weight lifting equipment. The breakfast in the hotel was outstanding!! It had scrambled eggs, ham, make your own waffles, muffins, toast, grits, danishes, etc. Way more than what you generally find in a hotel. Everything we had was delicious!! It was a very large room (it is part of the hotel's restaurant) so there was room for everyone without having to wait for a table - a rarity in hotels. The staff was more friendly and helpful than I generally encounter in hotels. The internet was a bit slow, but it was fast enough for emails. The room had a coffee maker with coffee/tea provided. Only one complaint. In order to get hot water for a shower in the morning (6:30am) I had to let the water run for 10 minutes!! There was lots of hot water from the sink taps the night before. I did report it to the staff when we left, so hopefully the problem has been corrected. I would not let this slight incident stop me from staying there again if we were back in town. The location is in an industrial area but if you have a car you won't care. The hotel apparently has a shuttle that drives you to anywhere downtown but we did not use this service. I would rate this hotel highly and we'll be back there - for the breakfast!!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room away from the elevators to avoid noisy people who sometimes forget to lowe...

You can't ask for more for the price. Excellent breakfast, good location, friendly staff, pool - would definitely go back if I ever come back to Denver. The only criticism would be that the ice machine on the 9th floor wasn't working (apparently for a longer period already).

Room Tip: Smoking rooms are on the 9th floor with a great view.
