Knights Inn Aurora
Ranked #29 of 51 Hotels in Aurora
Reviewed 7 February 2012

I've stayed in the same room at the hotel three times in the last three years. It's an old hotel, and needs maintenance. The bath tile grout is moldy in places, and the coffee maker has been broken in the same way for three straight years. There's also some staining in the shower ceiling area from a water leak above. On the other hand the bed was comfortable and the linens were clean. There's a Denny's across the street. It's an OK place to lay your head for one night as long as a broken coffee maker and a bit of mold on bath grout doesn't bother you too much. There is a continental breakfast but is is inferior to those offered in many places - just cereal and donuts. Some people might give the place one star. I'm giving it 2 as I reserve 1 star status for places I will never stay at again. This is not one of those places.

Relocating to Denver from another part of Colorado for work. Needed a room for a week until I got myself settled into Denver. The first room I was put in was filthy, shower didn't work, shower rod only was being held up by the small edge of the tile on the wall. It was obvious that the door to the room had recently been kicked in. All the hardware on the door was brand new and was just obvious that it has recently happened. The second room was just as dirty, smelled badly of smoke. Obvious water leakage in the ceiling in the room, this was also new, because as the week went along, the patch started to crack and fall apart. Also, while in the room for the week, there was a major water leaking in the bathroom ceiling. Hug bubble all of a sudden showed up, had to puncture it to drain it. Bathroom was old and filthy. Tiles in the shower old, moldy in the gaps, obviously no one has tried to clean, beyond just wiping down. Tub again, was filthy. No attempt to clean other then to just wipe down.

Fixtures were destroyed or unusable. They had a lamp in the middle of the room with maybe a 5 inch shade that was stained, bent... Really... I should have taken a picture.

Told staff that I worked over nights and would be sleeping during the day, so I wouldn't need housekeeping during the day. I said that if I needed anything, I would let the desk know, and go from there. Was woken up every day by house keeping.

Believe it or not, the bed was very comfortable. So at least my sleep was restful.

Most horrible dirty disgusting place I've ever seen in my life. The staff was suspect, it was sad. It was our first time in Colorado. We were planning on moving to the Denver area, (still am), and wanted to really check every inch of the town out. But....out of all the beauty, this was soooooo horribly bad. Bed sheets dirty, not washed once in the 9 days we were there. Cigarette burns in carpet and bed spread, stains on the mattress, the ac/heater was loud and sucked completely. The bathroom was so tiny and filthy. The towels they give you barely covered my 5 year old. Coffee maker broken, blow dryer broken, it seemed like the "guests" were actually living there, it was nasty. Never again never ever again. CLOSE IT DOWN.

Room Tip: Do not go here

This is one of the filthiest motels I have ever stayed at. There was trash and an empty roll of toilet paper behind the door that was missed by the cleanup crew. There were cigarette buds on the carpet by the bed and the sheets had burn holes. The room definitely needed to be updated. The surrounding area was nice, stores were in walking distance, etc., too bad it was so bad. Will not stay here again...

Room Tip: stay somewhere else...

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!! By far the most nasty, dirty, unkept, Motel we have ever encountered. The sheets did not fit, no hair dryer, toilet seat was broken, bathroom door knob was loose and broken, we had a "non somking room" that reaked of tobacco (or what ever), the AC was so loud we could hardly sleep, carpets were dirty, towels smelled as if they had been dipped in oil or for sure not washed properly, masking tape to replace the grout in the bathroom, this place is in need of repairs (maybe torn down), THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN AND THEN TORN DOWN. The corporate head quarters should be aware of this. Based on our experience I will NEVER stay at a Motel 8 AGAIN. Beware and stay away from here. The BBB will be notified of this Motel.

Room Tip: Go to another Motel

The grout between the tiles in tub area were black with mold and pushed out, looked like they were ready to fall off at any minute. There was no soap or shampoo, etc. provided. They had the energy saving light bulbs in..they sure did save energy..they didn't turn on! One bedroom light worked. We had to tap the light in the bathroom in order for it to turn on (fluorescent light). There was chewed gum stuck on the night table and potato chip crumbs on the floor. There was a strange, indescribable smell in the room. There was no fitted sheet on the bed, so try not to wake up on the bare mattress!

I always travel on a budget and I know that you get what you pay for. However, this place left a lot to be desired. The room was depressing and outdated. The area that contained the ice machine was locked and most of the time was difficult to enter with my room card. I had to go to the office to have someone open it for me. I will never stay there again.
