“Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

The reviews I read prior to staying here made me hesitant about the visit and in terms of the area I would say to be careful and don't walk around at night unless you are in a group.
Having said that the room I stayed in was large and facing away from the street was quiet - bed was super comfortable but as noted in a few other reviews the decor is certainly dated. Check in earlier than 2pm and you are charged a fee but being Thanksgiving weekend and very quiet the receptionist waived it which was appreciated.
In terms of location for access to downtown it was great - easy walk to the Civic Center (again only walk during the daylight hours) and in the evening there was a bus route that went directly past the hotel.
One thing I struggled with was the restaurant - there was a sign displaying the opening hours for each day (although arriving Thanksgiving Day I was unsuprised to find it closed) but then it randomly closed on the Sunday too when I got back late from a day tour and could really have done with eating in the hotel. However the pub across the road, suggested by the receptionist, was great.
Generally speaking in fact the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Would recommend to anyone going to Denver on a budget but just take note of the neighbourhood concerns.

I liked this place, it has a cool log cabin feel to it in the lobby. Due to Amtrak problems we didnt arrive until really really late at about 5:30am the morning after we were supposed to arrive. The staff were helpful, though wouldn't refund us or offer a discount even though we'd pretty much missed a night even though it wasn't out fault. That was ok though, i didn't expect them to really. The room was nice, clean and comfy. The area has plenty of convenience stores and fast food places. A little on the shady side the further you walk down the street but nothing major. Good location, and got a free taxi service from the hotel downtown. There seemed to be lots of services at the hotel, pool, shop, resturant, but i didnt use any of them. I'd stay here again.

Overall, the room is nice, average size, and has a nice bathroom too. The bed is a plus, very comfortable. I stayed there for one night, and I will definitely stay at this place again next time.

We decided to spend a weekend in Denver and chose to stay at this hotel. When driving into the city from the airport the hotel did not look too bad, although I have seen Ramadas in far better shape.

The first thing I noticed was the smell. This place must have been a smoker's paradise until just recently. When checking in, the staff was friendly. The other good thing about this place is the free and fast WiFi. But unfortunately, those are the only good points of the hotel.

1) A used syringe dropped out of the sheets just a couple of inches from my feet. Luckily, nobody got poked by it. When I confronted the front desk about their obviously lousy room keeping service, they promised to refund the night's stay when checking out. When checking out, the refund was denied for some bogus reason (for not having booked directly with Ramada, but through another website).
2) The rooms are not vintage, they are just old. The dark colors and – once again - the smell of cold cigarette smoke in combination with a carpet of an undefinable color and fiber added up to a very uncomfortable feeling. Besides its tiny size, the bathroom could not hide its age either: A hole in the shower curtain and far more than usual wear-and-tear rounded-up the whole bad impression.
Plus: The room was dirty (besides the syringe). I found long curly hairs in the sink and at the coat track. The bathroom floor was not clean either.
3) The rooms are noisy (at least those facing the street – Colfax equals heavy traffic) plus the dodgy establishments in the neighborhood added the bassline driven soundtrack to this stay throughout the night. Once the music stopped, room keeping started the vacuum cleaners, slamming doors, and just being unnecessarily loud in the hallway.
4) The parking lot is far too small for a hotel of this size. Other guests were made to park in the fire lane although a sign at the front desk informed them that the Denver PD would ticket and tow.
5) The name „Downtown Denver“ is misleading as it takes 10 minutes to get to the State Capitol, Civic Center and other real downtown sites. I was surprised by the large number of liquor stores and other questionable businesses around.

Room Tip: Any other hotel would do.
