“Decent location, just not a decent part of town. Huge Loud Gay Bar next door.”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Good price, average room and friendly staff. Nice firm soft bed and was happy with good air conditioning. Internet was very slow. The location is decent but I wouldn't walk outside at night. Too many homeless and beggars everywhere. The Gar Bar next door was too loud. Few restaurants a few doors down and a store. I'm not sure if I would stay here again.

We were searching for a downtown Denver hotel on a cheap travelers budget. in the end this looked like the best value but other reviews made me a little leary of it. Well dont believe what other people have to say. For a bed, shower, and a place to sleep you cant get any better value than this.
The room was clean, decor was fine, AC worked, staff was friendly, we were on the second floor and had a great view of the city skyscrapers, the neighborhood was active but safe at night. If you expect to go to a city and not see homeless people or drunks then you should probably just stay out of the city. The only complain I had was the mattress had a plastic covering over it but it was still comfortable.
The best part about it was the distance from downtown. We got there around 7 at night and left for dinner around 830 we walked all the way to 15th and Wazee, ate, and walked back by 1030. The 16th street mall and business district is about 7 blocks away. if you are looking for location, then this is the place to be, everything else that was great about the hotel was just an added bonus.

Aside from the plastic enshrouded mattress the rooms are fine. When considering the cost per night in Econo Lodge Downtown Denver...seven or eight short blocks to the Colorado Capital Building and nine or ten blocks from the super "spendy" ($200 to $500/ night) four and five star hotels in the center of town, this hotel is an excellent value. The staff here is very helpful.

There is a restaurant about two blocks away and across the street from the hotel called "Tom's Diner". It is right out of a scene from 'Pulp Fiction'....and the food is worthwhile. I recommend it just for its ambiance alone.

Staff friendly and helpful. Didn't get breakfast as left at 5.40am. Room clean, bed reasonably comfortable, air con heavenly. A bit of a walk out of the city and the surroundings were somewhat more run-down than I was expecting, but nothing I worried about.

We got a cab from the amtrak station and this hotel is really a form of motel. It's central enough (15mins from Main Street/State Capitol/Convention area). Staff helpful, wifi good. The rooms were very badly lit with few lights! But they were big and fine for a one night lay over.

There are lots of good places to eat drink nearby and a nice couple of Irish and Gay bars too. When in Denver check out Main Street it is the nicest part of Denver.

Overall I would have no issue staying here again

Arrived at 1am in the morning after 11 and half hours on a Greyhound bus from Kansas City. We had no reservation so we asked for a room. The guy at the desk was very vague, didn't know his prices and what rooms were available. He fiddled around on the computer and after a minute or so he said that he had incorrectly typed in his password three times and the computer had locked him out (caps Lock was on). He said could we come back in half an hour and he would try again or else we should go down the road to the Ramada and try there. This guys attitude was appalling so my wife and I went to the Ramada.

The staff here was always very nice to us, but the location and condition of the rooms was not. We needed a budget hotel in downtown denver, which is pretty hard to find. We didn't feel safe walking from downtown to the location, and took a cab here at night. WiFi only worked in the lobby. Our first room didn't have a working toilet or tv. Switched rooms, only got a few channels on tv.
