“not a bad stay, but not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We have stayed at this hotel before, and had a great time then, but this time the air conditioner did not work, the room smelled of cigarettes, and the lobby smelled STRONGLY of cleaner. The breakfast was good, and the staff was friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has had no smokers and a working air conditioner.

Hi Greg,
Thank you very much for staying with us again. We really appreciate your business. During this time of the year Denver always been challenged by mother nature by one night being very cold and next morning again in 70s. Just to let you know that we have preventative maintenance program in place to see where else we can improve our service. You feedback is very important for us to know where we can improve.
I am glad to hear that you liked our our hotel service and breakfast , we really proud of giving you the great value for your money.
i would recommend not to take smoking floor rooms if you are not a smoker. We have about 185 non smoking rooms.
We wil again look forward to see you back and next time we can get 5out of 5 from you.
See you soon!

Spent 2 nights at this hotel thinking it was in the downtown area. Instead it is located on the north side of Hwy. 70 and very near Hwy 25 in an Industrial Area. If you are looking for a reasonably priced motel near the stadium with average priced rooms, this may be the place for you. We ended up using Pecos St. to 20th st. when visiting the downtown area. Less traffic and confusion of the Hwy's. Don't bother trying to regulate the heat in the room by using the thermostat because the heat is controled by the hotel. Rooms were very cold. Tub stopper didn't seal down so water leaked out when taking a bath. Had difficulty opening the door with the card key but reported it and they said they would have maintenance look at it. On the plus side, the Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was very good. Some days it included pancakes and other days they had waffels. Loved the fresh fruit.

Dear Jim,
How are you doing? on behalf of whole quality inn Denver central family I would like to say thank you very much for choosing us to stay during the football game. I certainly feel that you liked our service and breakfast.
Yes we are located near I-25 & I-70, which gives you more accessibility to city and we are only 10 mints away from Sports Authority Stadium for Broncos, we provide our guest free shuttle service as well.
I am sorry that our location did not really work for you. We are working very aggressively with city of Denver for some changes which will allow easy access to our hotel. You can expect so many changes near our hotel with in 6 months. Pecos bridge is going to be demolished and turned into round circle intersection to allow guest easy access.
We really appreciate your voice to us so we can think about getting better and do even much better.
Please allow us to be your host again when you are in town. Thanks again for good comments on service and breakfast. We will also look into heating issues again.
Thanks!

The Hotel was reasonable value for money. Access to the hotel whilst it is near the freeway is a little awkward as there is railway line near the hotel. We arrived a little early when checking in and the staff were excellent, they let us cloak our luggage in a room to the side of the reception area. Thanks people it was great! Free onsite parking. Shuttle bus. Clean comfortable beds. The complementary breakfast was good as was the breakfast area, which was the restaurant area. We also ate dinner at the hotel restaurant, it was good food at a reasonable price. There was also a sports bar/lounge next to the restaurant. The hotel is adjacent to a business commercial type park from what we could see. The hotel shuttle was great, the driver dropped us to the 16th Street Mall for a days shopping in central Denver. He also picked us up at a predetermined location and time in the afternoon, which was excellent. We only stayed one night but we would stay here again.

We booked a room here for a week's vacation in Colorado. The price, free parking and free breakfast were great benefits of choosing this hotel. We did a lot of day trips around the area, so for us the location was just fine for getting around. And it was great to start every day with a free breakfast downstairs. This wasn't your typical fruit and muffin breakfast, instead there were freshly made waffles, eggs, ham, oatmeal and cereal. The staff was extremely friendly every day and was there to answer any of our questions. The room was clean and well maintained. We utilized the free hotel shuttle into Downtown Denver and that was a lifesaver. It was much easier than driving in ourselves and trying to find parking or dealing with a taxi. We were there for the Great American Beer Festival, and this hotel worked out just fine for us. We would stay there again on our next trip to Denver.

This is a well located economic hotel with spacious, clean rooms, free parking and a wonderful buffet breakfast. Service is outstanding, but appointments are basic. Bring ear plugs and you'll have a perfect experience. Don't expect luxury if you're not paying for it.

Room Tip: The hotel has three arms around a central section. Ask for a room as far away from the elevators (ce...

Large, comfortable, very clean room, excellent breakfast. Exceptional value at the discounted $64 a night we paid. One reception staff member was not inclined to be that helpful (or perhaps didn't know much of the area) but customer service manager and another manager circulated at breakfast and gave excellent, very friendly advice which guaranteed a great days touring (the wider area offers some very special day drives) - very impressive guest relations in this sense. Little to criticise except perhaps the fairly barren location - isolated if you didn't have a car and not much in the immediate location in terms of restaurants - we were discouraged from walking to more local restaurants due to safety concerns. Other guests told the in house restaurant was good but this closes at 9:30 - we were later getting in than that and had to resort to pizza delivery both nights as we didn't fancy more driving.

We stayed there for one night at the end of our vacation while waiting to return back east by train. It was a busy Sunday with people coming and going to the Broncos and baseball games, but the staff never quit smiling and being friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, clean, and quiet despite all the activity in the lobby. We had a nice evening meal in the restaurant and an excellent expanded buffet breakfast in the morning before leaving. Doubt we will be in that area again, but if so, we would definitely stay there. Highly recommend.
