"The hotel was nice, and the room was always clean. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and respectful. I felt safe and enjoyed the quiet.2017-11-19"
"The location didn't seem safe. There were people loitering in the parking lot when we arrived at 1 AM. The room smelled like smoke. The bed was tiny, and there was hair all over the sheets. When we complained to the hotel clerk, we were told that the sheets were changed twice a week, which was unacceptable. With some persuading, the clerk allowed us to move with our small dog to a suite that was cleaner. We had to have our key card re-programmed twice. The back of the building was poorly lit, and the entrance wasn't kept locked. Not a good stay.2017-10-06"
"The price was fair, the hotel room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The sink didn't drain well, and the shower faucet ran. Not happy about the $100 damage deposit hold on my credit card.2017-05-26"
"This hotel didn't even deserve one star. The front desk clerk rudely said I didn't have the room I reserved. The light over the sink didn't work, and it wasn't fixed even after I notified an employee. The elevator didn't have an inspection certificate, and I didn't know the lobby was on the 2nd floor. Good restaurant, but a hotel employee refused to give me a straw for my drink. I won't be back.2016-09-03"
"The drapes in the room didn't stay closed; I used hair clips to keep them shut. The microwave didn't work, and the coffee was terrible. The toilet seat was uncomfortable. Housekeepers serviced our room even though we asked them not to. The hotel staff wasn't friendly and didn't make us feel welcome. The front desk clerk didn't speak English well and was hard to understand. Don't stay here.2015-08-19"
"Hotel needed major renovation inside and out. Room wasn't cleaned for two weeks. The housekeeping manager was rude and kept falsely saying the room would be cleaned. Mattresses looked old and were extremely uncomfortable. Carpet was filthy, and the TV was old and small. Old baseboard heating made creaking and groaning noises all night. Bathroom was dated and in poor condition. The clientele made me uncomfortable. Common areas were full of trash. No amenities. Limited parking. Worst place ever.2015-01-26"
"The beds were comfortable, but there were cobwebs all over the ceiling in my room, and the wall behind the toilet was dirty. I probably wouldn't stay at this motel again.2016-10-27"
"The furniture was broken, and the bedsheets had a funny smell. We went downtown, and when we returned to the motel, our room door was wide open. Stay here only as a last resort.2016-03-03"
"The rooms were dirty and disgusting, and the door lock was broken. The bedsheets were stained, and the blankets were torn and frayed. One room smelled horrible, and the other smelled like marijuana. My "upgraded" room was falling apart. There was no screen on the window, and people on the rooftop by our window were partying outside. The main door to the lobby didn't lock. This was the worst place I've ever stayed, and I travel a lot. Avoid this motel at all cost.2015-11-05"
"The walls were cracked, and the ceiling needed repair. The vanity lightbulbs were either missing or didn't work. Don't stay at this motel.2015-04-20"
"Good location and rates. Motel was a little run-down, but OK if you just need a place to sleep. Check-in clerks were a bit rude, and so was the breakfast attendant.2015-02-25"
"I was disappointed with this hotel. It was old and tired. My room's door lock was broken. The bathroom door was hard to close because the bathroom was so cramped. Find another place to stay.2023-04-25"
"Our hotel room hadn't been cleaned properly. There were stains in the bathroom, and some kind of spray on the mirror.2022-06-02"
"The room was clean, and the employees were pleasant. The hotel grounds smelled like dog urine, and some guests smoked outside their rooms. The pool wasn't open. Don't stay here.2021-07-29"
"Good experience. The hotel was adequate.2021-07-29"
"Easy access to Colfax and downtown Denver. Good value. The hotel was clean and quiet. I'd stay here again.2018-09-23"
"Good rates. The hotel was clean and odor-free, and the bed and pillows were comfortable. Had a kitchen. Good shower. A grocery store, drug store, and other businesses were nearby. If you don't have a car, be prepared to walk. I recommend staying here.2016-03-03"
"The hotel wasn't in the best shape, and remodeling was underway. There was paint falling off the walls, and the room numbers were taped on the doors. Housekeeping didn't service our room during our stay. The view of the hill from the window was underwhelming. Because of Covid, the pool wasn't open and there was no breakfast. Stay somewhere else.2020-06-17"
"The hotel room was clean, but the pool wasn't. The employees were friendly and helpful.2019-06-19"
"Good hotel, but the cable TV wasn't hooked up; I had to call maintenance. 2019-06-06"
"The sofa and chairs were dirty, and so was the hallway carpet. The bottom of the bathtub needed cleaning. Consider other hotels.2018-09-26"

"The hotel was great, and the staff was very helpful.2016-01-21"
"Nice setting. Good room and bed, and the hotel staff was helpful. Be aware that parking costs $32 per night. I recommend staying here.2016-01-16"
"Seemed overpriced. The room was stuffy and smaller than expected, and there was no bathtub to give the baby a bath. When we pulled out the sofa bed, it was dirty under the cushions. Not enough garbage cans. The snacks downstairs cost too much.2015-06-09"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
