Booked this hotel because it is only 5 miles from the truck stop my hubby was parked at. I don't get to see him very often, so I went to Denver for the night. The room was free, so no loss of money, but I did use my saved points from frequent stays at La Quinta Inns. The overall condition of the room was average. The bed was comfortable, pillows and linens were clean and smelled fresh. No mold or mildew in the bathroom. Shower curtain was brand spanking new. Coffee pot was clean. Plenty of soap and towels. Heating unit worked fine. The light fixture between the beds was hanging loosely from the wall and just needs to be tightened up to look better. The hotel staff were friendly and courteous.
My biggest complaint is that the carpeting in the room was absolutely filthy. I brought our two little dogs along for the trip to see "dad". They are 100% white. Well, after only an hour in this room, their feet, bellies, ears and chins were very dark grey from the dirty carpeting. My hubby's white socks were also very dirty from walking around without his shoes. There is no excuse in the world for the carpeting in a hotel room to be this dirty.
The hotel is located right at the junction of Interstate 25 and Interstate 70, so I imagine there is quite a bit of exhaust dust in the air. However routine vacuuming and shampooing of the carpet would be necessary for this place to keep clean. The traffic noise is not too bad, and it was quiet once we wanted to sleep. Some guests may have issue with the two interstates being on one side of the hotel and the railroad being on the other side. If you must stay here, request a room on the interstate side. The train comes through around 3 a.m. It didn't blast the horn, but it was just enough to wake me up. My hubby is accustomed to sleeping in his truck, so the traffic and train noise did not bother him.
The Mexican restaurant out front was delicious, and priced accordingly.
IF the carpet had been cleaner, I would rate this location as average - very good, but I was very disappointed because of the condition of my dogs.
