Days Inn Golden
Ranked #5 of 17 Hotels in Golden
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Good room & great breakfast when we stayed on Aug. 16th for one night . 11 year old granddaughter had a blast in the pool and water slide.
Also had dinner in their restaurant & it was very good ( terrific fish & chips ). One ice machine not working & second one out of ice when leaving the next morning but the manager got us some ice from the kitchen when I mentioned it to him.. We found all the staff were willing to go out of their way to assist you. Location just off Hwy 1 but was very quiet. A little out of the way from downtown.

The motel looks pretty nice from the outside. Pretty mountain views and plenty of surrounding wilderness. Even the lobby looks pretty. Very nice exterior, to say the least.

We were charged $220 for our room, a queen suite, which I thought was quite steep but I thought it was because of the area.

Walling into the room, the smell of cigarette smoke masked with overpowered cleaners and air fresheners filled our nostrils.

The room was a really good size. A nice sized living area with a big TV, good sized bathroom (with a big spider in between the tub and the wall, resting against old caulking), and two rooms, each with a queen bed. This layout was perfect.

There was visible dirt around the beds and on the carpet. Dings and scratches all over the place. And the smell after a while made you feel sick.

After walking around for a bit, and my little ones running about after having sat in the car for hours, I noticed that the carpet felt gross. I thought it was just old, and tried to ignore it. But then my husband said our two-year-old daughter's feet were black. Lo and behold, so were mine. So were my son's. So were my husbands socks.

After some deliberation, we decided to leave and go elsewhere. The front desk staff were professional and courteous when we brought our situation to their attention, and offered to give us a different room, to which we declined. The experience was ruined for us.

The hotel restaurant, however, was excellent. The food was great and the place was clean. The waitress was extremely friendly and went out of her way to make us comfortable.

If the hotel gets their housekeeping in order, and perhaps some new carpets, we will be back.

Thanks for taking time to write us the review at TripAdvisor!!!

We appreciate your compliments about our lobby, outside appearance, our restaurant and our room layout. Our prices keep fluctuating all year round due to high and low travel season. We are a completely non smoking hotel and do apologize if you smelt smoke any in the room. I am sorry about the bad experience you had regarding the cleanliness.

we will begin our extensive renovation program in the coming months. You will see many positive changes to our property. Thanks for your business and we hope to get an opportunity to serve you again.

Average price & average hotel. Amazing view out the back - get a room with a balcony! Front staff were a tad rude - they screwed up our reservation big time. All the hotels in town were booked solid so we had to stay there. Complimentary breakfast wasn't the worst. Will try a newer hotel if we stay in Golden again.

Thank you for your review.

As we talked over the phone earlier, the booking was made via online/call center source. Sometimes, we don't get specific guest requests from these sources which creates inconsistency in providing a good customer experience.We are doing we will begin our extensive renovation program in the coming months. You will see many positive changes to our property.

Thanks for your business and we hope to get a chance to serve you again

We stayed here for one night traveling through the area and had a great experience. Rooms are clean and quiet, nice view, very good breakfast. We did not use the pool but it was a nice addition. The view was great and it is very convenient for travelers.

If you're looking for a reasonable priced hotel with a pool, awesome waterslide, and a beautiful view than look no further! This is no 5 star hotel but the room is clean and very comfortable for our overnight stay. If you're a fussy keeper than this may not be the place for you. Everything you need in one place at this hotel. My food dish of fish and chips with appy of springrolls was great!

Stayed one night here. The rooms are decent a little small though. The waterslide and pool were nice with a great view. And the addition of a sauna was very appealing. The included breakfast was great and spacious. Would stay here again.

First off, this hotel is a 10 minute drive from downtown Golden, along the highway with no services within walking distance.

Clearly it is an older hotel, with walkways cracking and clearly dated rooms and furnishings. The bathroom fan in our room did not work. When in our bathroom we could clearly hear other people using the toilet in theirs.

The staff was incredibly disrespectful. At 2am - we had been asleep since 11pm - they came pounding on the door accusing us of being too loud. I told the hotel employee we had been asleep for hours and he just shrugged and said we were identified as being noisy. Half asleep, defending myself from accusations, the employee just walked away, without a word.

The free breakfast is not worth the price you pay. Powdered eggs and fatty sausage. The seating area is incredibly small, so be prepared to take food back to your room. Only redeeming part of the food is they had some nice, fresh bananas.

Not only will I never stay here again (there are certainly a large selection of hotels in Golden), I doubt I will ever stay at a Days Inn again either. You've been warned.
