"Balance of location and price"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 2, 2014

We needed to get on the Amtrak train early the next morning, so location was important. By careful planning, we managed to fly into Denver and then take a bus right to this hotel. The next morning, we got an easy 5 minute cab ride to the station. The room was fine--no odors or problems with the A/C. We did not hear any train noise at all.And the relatively low room rate was quite a bargain. The desk clerks were pleasant and helpful. This hotel is practically right across the street from Coors stadium, so someone thinking baseball would benefit, too. We ate at the little restaurant next door. All in all, this place is a bargain!

"Last resort"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 2, 2014

Negatives: This hotel is dated. The stairway metal work was defective and the walkway and other areas leading to the rooms were not maintained to the expected standards. It is literally next to the freeway. Finding it wasn't easy even with the SatNav. Positives: In fairness, the room was clean and the carpeting appeared to be recently changed or maintained in good shape. The area was patrolled by law enforcement. I never felt any danger. The free breakfast was adequate. Summary: I would not recommend this lodging if other options are available. Stay here as a last resort only.

"Unable.to spend the night"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 28, 2014
hjhhhhh | Suffolk, Virginia
On a fifteen day road trip staying at 10 other LA Quinta's this was by far the worst hotel of the trip. The hotel is dated and tired. The room smelled horrible some mixture of moldy, mildewy, odor masked by air freshener. The room was not clean. The exterior door had a large gap at the bottom allowing sound into the room. The neighborhood did not appear safe and is located too far from the downtown area for walking. After taking all of this into account we chose to book another hotel and then left. If there was a way to give a zero I would. About the only purpose I can see for this place is a place to crash after a night of drinking. Definitely not a place for a family.

"OLD, OLD, OLD!!!!"

We were supposed to have had a reservation at the Golden location but that got messed up and the only room in the area was at the Denver Central. It was very old and had outside doors to the rooms. Was not in a safe part of town either! Though it was very old and well used, at least it did not smell. Luckily we only had to stay one night there.

"A Last Resort Near Downtown"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 21, 2014

If being rock-throwing distance from a freeway ramp and hearing cars all night is your cup of tea, then this is the place for you. Then there's the air conditioning that only works at full blast, and the broken toilet seat for an extra added bonus. It is close to Coors Field and all the brewery restaurants in that neighborhood, so that is an actual plus. There aren't too many low-cost options downtown so this may be your best option if you're on a tight budget. Sorry about that.
