“Home away from home”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

To my good friends at the Golden Hotel...I spend a good portion of my time away from home, more times than not I am in Golden as that is where my corporate office is. At first I chose the Golden Hotel due to its location to where I worked, after staying there a few times I realized that while the location was great, it was not why I stayed there. Graciela, April, Brett, Nate, Aaron, Mike, Samantha, Barb and Eric (I am sure I am missing somebody... very sorry) always remember me and take the time to make me feel at home, this means a lot to me as I have 2 young children and a wife at home that I miss very much. If I could make one suggestion it would be to bring back the lobster Mack and cheese!:) I would not stay anywhere else, Thank you all for the effort, it is truly appreciated by this guest and will never be forgotten!! BTW...the Cheesecake rocks!

Our friend got married on the patio behind the hotel. It was beautiful! We were there for a long weekend, but only stayed in this hotel one night. We wished we would have stayed there the whole trip. I enjoyed the whole look of the hotel, and the rooms were big and comfy. I loved the showers, and the bed was amazing. The view out our window was beautiful, and it was a close walk to pretty much everything! We really enjoyed our stay here, and it was a great place for a small wedding reception!

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our stay at The Golden Hotel. The location was lovely, and our room (suite, since we were upgraded) was one of our favorites of all time. Everything was perfect. We really didn't want to leave.

I recently spent a very long week at the golden hotel. While there was not a single event in itself that was horrendous, it was the culmination of these:

Computer system was down so we had to wait 15 minutes before we could get our keys.
Specifically requested a room away from the elevator, but received a room three steps from the elevators.
Front desk lost my dry cleaning.
Robes were torn and frayed.
Static in bed was so extreme it woke us in the middle of the night.
Every word of your neighbors could be heard through the walls.
The hvac fan was very loud.
The windows were not sealed. When the wind would blow, the curtains would move.

Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else!

We are absolutely horrified to hear of your recent experience at our property. This is not the level or service we pride ourselves on, or that even comes close to the level of exceptional service our guests have come to be familiar with. We cannot apologize enough for you experiencing anything less than excellence. Please contact our hotel manager Dana Mielke to discuss your stay with her personally.

My wife, family, friends and I have received absolute phenomenal customer service from Kaylee, while eating lunch and dinner in the lounge area. Although, the service is great in the dining area, we always dine in the lounge when Kaylee is working, because the service she provides is awesome. Although the food is excellent, Kaylee's personality and service are the main reasons we go.

I stayed here for a week on a business trip. My room was good, a decent size with a comfortable bed, and all very clean, the staff were friendly, the food was good, maybe a bit expensive.. Would definitely go back.

We stayed in one of the two-room Creekside suites at the Golden Hotel for 4 nights, and were very pleased with our room, the hotel's restaurant, and the very friendly, professional service offered by the hotel's staff and management. The suite was newly and attractively redecorated (from what I understand, the entire hotel has been renovated and/or redecorated), very spacious and comfortable; the "living" room included a gas fireplace, a large TV, a leather couch and two comfortable chairs, a large desk and chair, and a long granite counter with a sink, small refrigerator, coffee service, and microwave. The bedroom and bathroom were large. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, and we slept well. The suite was spotlessly clean, and the windows offered pretty views. There is some street noise, as the hotel is just 4 stories tall, but nothing that we noticed (with the exception of a police or fire siren) after the first night.

The hotel's location can't be beat, if you have business or plans in Golden or at the Colorado School of Mines. Historic Golden is just outside the door, as is a 1.6 mile paved walkway along Clear Creek; the CSM is a short, pretty walk away.

The hotel's staff and management, and the Bridgewater Grill's staff, were very friendly and attentive. We had breakfast in the grill each day, and the food was hot, tasty, and just as ordered each time.

We have plans to return to Golden, and will look forward to returning to the Golden Hotel!
