I understand that we had to wait 40 minutes for the airport shuttle because we didn't know we were supposed to call, but that was the beginning of the horrible experience! We finally made it to the hotel to find the lady at the desk sitting in a chair playing on a cell phone and was clearly disgusted to have to get up to do anything. There was a phone ringing nonstop in the background the entire time we were checking in. (Probably someone needing a ride from the airport!) Finally a lady came from the back and answered the phone but was irritated the person on the phone couldn't understand her - we couldnt either. She then stood over the other girl asking "what's going on? what's going on?" I am assuming she was the manager from her actions. Awkward and extremely uncomfortable for everyone involved!
The lobby is strange - only way to describe. It looks like a mish-mash of styles that have been cheaply thrown together - rustic cabin meets mustard explosion meets red something-or-other. Strange.
Now the room was supposed to be a suite according to the confirmation but we got was a normal room with no color. It was just like what you would imagine a room in a mental institiution. Plain white and devoid of any color other than the green shag carpet from 1980. The bedspread went right to the floor because I think someone was laying on it before. The window fame was broken and the noise was unbelievable! The bathroom was clean but decorated like an interstate rest area. A white plastic slab, rusted out light fixture, and peeling wallpaper only accented the yellow towels that weren't even as soft as sandpaper. The front desk informed me that check in time was 2pm and she did me a favor to get my family in early when I asked to be relocated. Needless to say we didn't get moved.
Later we rented a car because this hotel is near absolutely nothing other than a 50's style diner-which was wonderful-but after returning from Red Rocks, there was not a single parking space in the whole lot. The man behind the desk said they have that problem all the time and I should park across in the diner lot but said I might be towed.
The breakfast was decent. ONLY decent. They must be having serious financial troubles because everything was from Costco - cheapest tissue (Kirkland brand) and even the small danish in the morning was cut in half! The bananas were as brown as a crayola and the apple was no bigger than a crab apple, yet nicely wrapped in saran! Why we stayed the whole night is a good question! The highlight of the trip was knowing we done with that junk hole!
This could seriously have ben a scene from a National Lampoon Griswold Family Vacation movie!
If you thinking sleeping in the airport is a bad experience, you should try this place out! You will reconsider quick!
