My wife and I just stayed at this Hampton Inn for 6 nights. Very nice and attentive staff. Our room was clean and comfortable. The furnishings seem pretty new, although the bathtub seems to be a little beaten up already. But everything worked and was clean! The room appeared to be vacuumed every day. Also, the hotel advises that the bed comforter in each room is washed, along with the sheets, of course. I think every hotel should do that so guests are assured the covers are clean. The bed is a little too soft compared to beds in other hotels I have stayed at in my reviews, so this is something to note if you need certain mattress types to sleep comfortably.
The included breakfast is quite good, with a rotating selection of eggs and bacon, or biscuits and gravy or eggs and sausage, plus potatoes. Along with the waffle maker, breads, cereals, yogurt, juices and coffee, I was quite happy. On Saturday, the kitchen ran out of the hot food selections - I think other guests were hogging but the hotel needs to adjust for a full house. The lobby/dining area is very comfortable and large enough that we never had to wait for a place to sit.
Free WiFi throughout the hotel is a welcome amenity. I didn't have time to use the small indoor pool, but it looks nice. There is a compact exercise room adjacent to the pool as well. The small but convenient Business Center room and has 3 computers and a laser printer. Happily, WiFi is free and signal seems good in room and lobby, and is fast enough for typical business use.
Location is very good for easy driving access around the area - to Red Rock Park & Amphitheater, Lariat Loop scenic byway, downtown Golden, the Colorado Mills shopping mall, and the Colorado School of Mines. The hotel is about a mile and a half from the recently opened RTD Light Rail station which runs from Golden into downtown Denver ($4.00/1 way). (Although the light rail is a great way to avoid driving into Denver for a day trip, you definitely need a car or a ride to or from the RTD station. It's not very close to the Hampton Inn or any hotel in Golden for that matter.)
Overall, a very good hotel and we would definitely stay here next trip.
