Only went there because every place else was booked. Got to room and there was no towels, plastic cups or tissue paper. You have to go to lobby to get a hair dryer. Rooms are in need of updating. Got up at 6am to get an early start on our travels and there was no hot water. Called office and... More

Patty in the office was rude. The room had a musty odor. Found two dead insects in the bed. The AC didn't work well. The sheets were frayed along the edges, the box spring stained, the blanket old and scratchy. There was a space where insects could enter the room under the entry door. The sack in the trash can...

I read the reviews on this place but we decided to give it a try. Here's the issues we had: 1. No record of reservation made through Orbitz although they did give us a room. 2. Air conditioning unit does not work. 3. Bathroom-floor was actually buckled from water leaking from somewhere. 4. Turned shower on & dead bugs came... More

After reading the reviews I was scared to stay here, but decided to give it a shot anyway. The staff was nice. The location was excellent to where all the shops were. Pets stayed free in certain rooms with a refundable $50 deposit. There was no air, but it was comfortable. Next visit to the Rockies we will stay here... More

I read all thirty reviews for the Four Winds. Most of the negative reviews seem to be people wanting a 4 to 5 star hotel for $53 a night. I was afraid to book a room but could not find anything else available for the Memorial Day weekend on short notice so I took what I could get. After checking... More

My friends and I had planned our get away trip for months. We were looking for a cheap hotel. This was our 3rd night in a different city, different hotel, ALL our hotels were under $100 bucks. This one didn't even come CLOSE to the quality of the others. The room stank like cigarette smoke and aged cheese. The blankets... More
