"Going Downhill"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 20, 2014

We stayed in this La Quinta approximately 4 to 5 years ago and it has definitely gone downhill. They need to upgrade this facility as this is what it takes to keep a hotel nice. The TV started to "scatter" making it unwatchable. We called the front desk and they said "oh, it does that once in a while, just unplug it and then plug it back in again." Hey! I have an idea! Why don't you call the cable company to get it fixed?! This TV did that twice. Also, breakfast could be a lot better.

"Good experience"

We had 2 rooms and both were clean and we had no problems. We thought the breakfast was fine since there was some protein too- eggs, yogurt. We had free wifi and the desk had multiple plugs to use. We did wish we had a refrigerator in the room which should be standard.

Warning, this is a motel, not a hotel. There is no way of knowing this form the La Quinta website, neither by the photos or the description. Might be OK for a one night stay if falling asleep while driving on I-70, but not much else. The check-in person was more interested in telling me where the smoking area was than being really helpful. The room itself, while being newly painted, is pretty small and uncomfortable. No tissues upon checking in and only two towels and washcloths. No hand towels. The bed feels old with the center being rather saggy. The breakfast was poor, even by La Quinta standards. It's pretty bad when the Denny's next door seems the better option. Was supposed to stay here four nights and gladly am paying $30/night more to move to a better hotel up the street a bit.

"Pure disappointment"

The manager at the front desk was quite friendly and helpful. But once we got in our room, pure disappointment. Had to go ask for toilet paper. They didn't even clean our room the next day. Wend we checked out the gal behind the front desk was rude. The breakfasts were ok, the ladies keeping that filled were quite friendly. When a staff member blared her music from her SUV on Monday morning at 6 AM while she was finishing getting ready for work didn't respect those sleeping, wow really! The grounds could of used a bit of cleaning. This is sad because this place was located centrally to a lot of places we were going to.

"Good Option for People With Pets, Red Rocks Shows"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 11, 2014
Satisfaction7 | Fort Collins, Colorado
We happen to be local (Fort Collins, CO), but were taking in a show at gorgeous Red Rocks Amphitheatre nearby, and knew that getting out of the concert in traffic and then driving over 60 miles late at night was going to spoil the whole mood. So we booked a room here where we could leave our two small dogs, locked in crates, for the 4 hours we'd be gone. The location is right off of I-70, and yet, the room was very quiet. New furnishings, clean, friendly staff. Pool was very popular on a hot summer day. The bathroom is a bit cramped, but there's free wifi and a nice desk with connection ports to charge your devices. The beds, linens, pillows were above average, the AC worked beautifully, nice TV. It's tough to find a place in this location at this price, and was so nice to find they did not charge an extra pet fee. We saved a bunch because we didn't have to board our dogs for the night. And speaking of Red Rocks, I have never gotten home after a concert so quickly. It helped that we parked along one of the venue roads, vs. the parking lots. But it was 30 minutes from the time we left the arena and then got back to the motel. While they do serve a free continental breakfast (juice, coffee, cold cereal, waffles, fruit, etc.) we opted for the Denny's next door for hot pancakes and the like. There's also a Good Times within walking distance with breakfast and late night food, as well as a gas station and convenience store. There was enough green space to walk the dogs at night, and it felt very safe. Friendly staff. Hope to stay again when our travels involve an overnight near Golden. The historic town of Golden is worth a visit and is a short drive. Ask the front desk for the back way to drive if you want to avoid the interstate. Great restaurants, bars, shops, pretty walk along the creek, and the famous Coors brewery. You can spend a day here easily. Awesome scenery.
