After 10 days in this location, I can provide a honest review of the hotel. First I like the convenience of location, the hotel is about 15 minutes drive from the DIA, main Airport in Denver.
Once leaving the airport, if you drive, Pena Boulevard connect smooth with I-70. Taking the West bound direction, I-70 take you to Quebec St. in matter of few minutes. Turning left on Quebec St. you need to stay on the far right lane, the hotel is on your right, two minutes away from I-70.
In order to pull on the parking lot, you need to drive pass the hotel and make a sharp right turn on front of the "Mariposa Restaurant".
The hotel show some signs of age, if you can deal with that you will be fine. My room has two small windows to the back of the property, one of the latches was broken, but there's a wood fence on the back, so I don't lost my sleep.
The room was clean on arrival, the A/C initially don't work well, but after a call, somebody took care and the air was fresh and cool. Nothing was broken, all lights were fine, except for the desk that have one "weak" leg. A small fridge and micro make your stay more comfy. A flat screen TV is in each room. The bathroom was good, and pack with towels, The queen size bed was not the best, but I don't have complaints. At nights I heard like a vent noise from next room, but anyway I fall sleep. A shopping center is just across the hotel, you can walk, just be careful with the traffic. If you need a supermarket don't go across, instead drive to your right, as the traffic flow, be careful with the traffic coming from your left. Drive to the 29th St. (3 minutes from the hotel) the market will be on your left on 29th .
After passing the 29th St. you will drive for about 10 minutes, and you will find Colfax Av. the longest in the US (26 miles) here you can find almost all kind of stores. If drive, remember that in Colorado pedestrians have the right to pass, so give them "a brake".
The core Downtown center of Denver is only about 15 minutes from the hotel, this mean the famous 16th St. Mall, the City Park (Zoo and Nature-Science Museum) the Capitol (getting more gold on the dome!)
If you're not familiar driving in Denver, use Colfax as reference to the hotel, Colfax run West-East, and Quebec go North South ( Diagonal streets in downtown go crazy!)
Breakfast on the second floor was very basic, with eggs and waffles as main food, with breads, juices and coffee.
Over all, the location of this hotel is the major advantage of staying there. Staff is friendly and helpful. They have shuttle service to and from the airport .Last but no least, the hotel by been close to I-70, is convenient to other important highways as the 225 and I-25. Tourist info is available on the lobby, as also a small room with two computers to use free of charge.
