First of all, I know that you usually get what you pay for. Seeing as this is an economy extended stay hotel, my expectations of this hotel were not that high to begin with. I travel very frequently and usually stay in nicer brands, but this was booked very last minute and I settled for a cheaper option.
Upon check-in, I learned that there are no irons and ironing boards in the rooms. This is king of a big deal because I was in town for a job interview and I did not want to wear wrinkled clothes to a job interview. The reservation agent on duty at the time told me they have irons but all of the irons are currently out on loan to residents (yes there are several people who actually live at this hotel since it is an extended stay hotel). She assured me that one was coming back shortly and she would be sure to reserve it for me the following morning. I came back the next morning as soon as the office opened and wouldn't you know it, there was no iron reserved for me. There was a new reservation agent on duty at this point and she had no interest in helping me find an iron even after I explained that I have a job interview in a few hours and I cannot show up with wrinkled clothes. Her response was "I'm sorry". That's it! She could have at least offered to see which rooms had irons that should have already been brought back, but she was obviously not interested in helping.
As I previously mentioned, there are several people that live here month-to-month since it is a cheap alternative to signing a 12-monthe lease in an actual apartment. The problem is that these people seemed to think they owned the place and had no regard for the other guests. There were several people out on the balcony at 2-3 am screaming and making tons of noise. In addition, it sounded like the studio above me had a skate ramp built inside it and the tenants were doing jumps and tricks at 4 am. I'm sure they don't really have a skate park in their studio, but that is what it sounded like. Needless to stay, I got virtually no sleep. Basically, I showed up to the job interview with wrinkled clothes running on zero sleep. I wonder if I will get the job?????
I definitely recommend spending a little extra money to stay at nicer hotels in nearby Westminster or Broomfield. You won't regret it.
