Reviewed 27 August 2008

The bed, AC and the shower were fine, but...
-2 out of 4 bulbs burned in the bathroom
-towel holder and curtain holder partly pulled from wall
-inadequate lighting
-no functiong phone
-had to ask for face cloth !
-had to ask for 'kleenex' !
-owner not pleasant to deal with
... and more
This was the third room we looked at before we agreed to stay since they had our reservation which could be cancelled with 48 hours notice...and for this room they charged more since it was 'better' than what had been reserved !!

Dear Ben065:

It has been some times since your last visit at my motel. I am undergoing a motel wide renovation and would like a chance for you to write a positive review on TA. Please contact me at pavi@goldenvillageinn.com and I can explain what I wish to do.

Thanks

Reviewed 27 July 2008

The motel is in an excellent location, on Highway 1 approaching the tourist area in the Rockies, considerably cheaper than the resorts in the Rockies themselves close to the small but welcoming town of Golden. The staff on reception were very friendly and efficient.
The price charged is demonstrated in the rooms. The rooms are quite small with a small en-suite. On arrival our room smelt musty.
The room we were given had a number of niggling problems, all of which could be resolved with a good refurbishment.
The motel has a hot tub and a Chinese Restaurant on site.
