My biggest complaint about the Ponderosa Motor Inn is that they are not there to make the guests feel welcome. Would never bring up the 15 lb microwave so we could make popcorn, two nights we asked for it and were basically ignored. Were told they do not have outgoing mail for "guests". Room was semi clean-shower curtain needed washed,... More

My experience is based on staying in room 416 (w/ kitchenette) for 9 nights while working in Golden. The staff were very friendly and the bed was really comfortable. The cleanliness met my standards and the fridge/range unit worked great. Wifi was always reliable for me and allowed for streaming/uploads of video without issues. Certainly wouldn't be to everyone's liking... More

We found the man at the front desk very helpful and provided us with the senior pricing. The rooms were very clean and bed comfortable. Rooms were relatively quiet and we had a good sleep. We were gone before the 7 am continental breakfast so unable to comment on it. Overall comfortable and would stay again.

We traveled on a long weekend, as busy as it was, the staff was smiling, cheerful and eager to please. There was a hot tub to relax in free breakfast in the morning. Very easy to get to from the highway. The room was simply furnished, clean and cozy. We will stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Ponderosa. Right from the moment we drove up and saw the pretty flower baskets and well maintained grounds we knew we had chosen well. The room was clean and quiet and the staff very helpful . The beds were comfortable and the view was great from our 2nd floor window. Thank you for... More

Wonderful place to stay. Nice and clean. Not expensive. There is a pool for the customers and the inn is in the heart of town. The staff are polite and knowledgeable about things to do. Free wifi. There are also kitchenettes for a long stay. Would stay there again.

My husband, our toddler, and myself spent one night here in April. We were moving, and needed to stop for the night. In an effort to save a few bucks, I chose the Ponderosa over a more reputable chain motel. Big mistake!! I will admit that the room was clean, so that's why we were okay with staying. Could hear...
