“It's okay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We stayed here for 8 days for a medical stay. We wanted to have housing that had a separate bedroom and living area because we both planned to work from our laptops while in the area. There are rooms that have been updated and rooms that have not. The night before arrival, I called the front desk to ensure that we had an upgraded room. Upon arrival, we were situated in building 5, floor 3. We lugged our luggage up the three flights and found a "non" updated room. There was an old fashioned 32" box tv on a 1980's wooden end table. The place was very dated. We immediately called the front desk to ask for a room change. Within minutes the front desk attendant met us and escorted us down one level to a new room. The new room was a little better. There was a flat screen tv but that was probably the only thing that was updated. The couch and chair were comfortable however they were worn and had a couple of holes in them. The kitchen cupboards were from the 1980's and the formica countertops had wear & tear. The bathroom caulking had mold and the corners of bathroom were dusty & dirty. The room was not horrible it was just "ho-hum". The price of the 1 bedroom suite per night was $72. This was an excellent deal. What we like the best about Boston Commons was the location. It is close to a lot of great restaurants! They have a hot breakfast located in the clubhouse every morning except for Sunday. I would stay here again knowing that I don't have very high expectations and the price was good.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated/renovated room.

I stayed here for two months on a business trip. Overall, the value is good and the front desk staff is pleasant. However, because the complex is split haphazardly between owner-occupied units and hotel apartment units, there is nobody responsible for overall quality control, which results in a lot of advertised features not being available:
- Internet is almost useless, at many times of day it simply doesn't work
- Hot tub is out of order with no plans to fix
- Exercise room is tiny and equipment broken and unmaintained
- Ants in rooms (with kitchens) - staff took care of it, but it was awful while it lasted
- Doors have no seals so cigarette smoke and lots of noise penetrate from hallway or adjoining suite
- Bathrooms are dated and somewhat moldy
- Dangerous wear on sidewalks, stairs, and parking lot
- Leaking roof in common area
- Breakfast is boring and not even served on Sunday

Despite this it is still possible to have a good night here at a reasonable price. But don't expect it to be like a real hotel, more like borrowing a friend's apartment.

Room Tip: Apartment units have forced air that works well, but extra bedrooms (sold as single rooms) have an i...

Arrived 10/3 and had to carry three sets of luggage to the third floor. Got to Room 1325 and the door does not sit properly in the jam, so I have to kick it open. No pillow for my son who was occupying the pull out sofa, I called down to the desk and was told they had no more pillows.

10/4, my wife goes to use a hand towel and there is "matter" stuck to the towel, this was on the inside of the hand towel that had been on the rack. My wife went to use another hand towel with the same results. I brought them to the manager's attention and he shrugs it off saying "oh, well. Sorry". I try to go to breakfast after being told it runs to 9:30 and it is being cleaned up, when I mention what I was told, the person cleaning up says, "we close at 9", with a major attitude.

10/5, we leave to go sight seeing and come back to a room that has not been cleaned. All of the garbages are full, all of the linens from that morning are still on the floor along with the sheets from the sofa bed. I walk to the lobby and no one is there, I call the number and am told by the person answering the phone she is out picking some one up. I wait for her return and get the life story of the Commons, I get clean linens and no one can explain why housekeeping didn't clean my room.

I sent an email to the Commons that night and I have heard nothing from the management of this facility. If this is how a "Corporate" hotel is run, I would rather stay at a Motel 6.

Room Tip: Don't Waste Your Time or Money!

We stayed in 1-bedroom suite for 4 nights just this August, all was great. They told us we got one of remodeled suites with new furniture so don't know about the others, but ours was really very nice and cozy, with a gas fireplace. There are apparently no elevators and we had to lag the bags up to the third floor but this was OK. Breakfast and housekeeping was not offered on Saturday and Sunday but we expected that having read the reviews. Otherwise the breakfast was good, washer&drier en suite very handy. Easy access to highway 25.

we rented this room because it offered a shuttle to any where with-in 5 miles of hotel and told they could not take us there because they were not allowed to go into parking area so we called a cab that dropped us off in front of the venue and did not have to go into parking area . That shuttle never left the parking lot the whole 3 days we stayed there, we asked for a ground floor room but they could not accomadate us there either so instead of a second floor room we had a third floor room and no elevator. The parking is terrible and the rooms have definatly been lived in.

Booked a 2 bedroom suite in march for a stay in august (5 months in advance). Credit Card charged. Received email 2 weeks before arrival date stating reservation cancelled......no reason given. Called the next morning and was told hotel was overbooked so my reservation was cancelled...sorry. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! Beware just because you make reservation and they charge your credit card dosent mean you have a room!

Room Tip: Dont book a room at this hotel!

Stayed here for 3 nights in June 2012 as part of a road trip. We selected this accommodation on the strength of trip advisor reviews and were extremely happy with our choice. We booked direct with the hotel and paid £54 per night for a fully equipped one bedroom apartment including all taxes. This was outstanding value for money.

The furniture/ decor in the apartment was perhaps a little dated but it was fully equipped including full hob/oven, large fridge freezer, washer/ dryer and wireless internet. A large gas barbecue (plumbed into the mains - no messing about with propane bottles!) was adjacent to our building and another next to the pool area.

An excellent breakfast including hot items was provided in 'the clubhouse' above the reception area.

The purpose of our stay in this area was to visit Denver and this was easily done via the light rail station with the Arapahoe station a short walk away (approx 7 to 8 mins).

The light rail whisked us into the centre of Denver in around 30 minutes for the princely sum of $8 allowing us to leave the rental car behind and not mess around with expensive parking. This may not be everyone's cup of tea but I can assure it was an easy way to visit the city.

We had a very enjoyable stay at The Boston Commons hotel and if we ever visit the Denver area again we will look to stay there.
