I want to start by saying this happened when Denver was getting those floods. If this had been a "normal" stay, they would have gotten 2 stars, not 3. To start, the lobby had flooded, so the carpet was wet and they had fans everywhere. A bad leak in the roof caused part of the ceiling to collapse when you go up the stairs, and the back doors were blocked off with sandbags. Hopefully none of this is part of your stay.
I waited over an hour for the shuttle, but again, I know the rain slowed this down, so i can't be that critical. It was also about 45 minutes to get to the hotel because the expressway was closed. But the girl driving was nice, so tried to make the best of it.
Overall, the place just looks a little tired. The rooms have old CRT TVs, but I can live with that for a cheap place.
My first room was on the first floor. When I walked in, it just smelled weird. It had a back door that went to a little patio. When I walked to it, I noticed the carpet for about 3 feet around the door was soaked. This must be why it smelled so bad.... Besides that, the bathroom was very plain. Light on the wall had a broken glass fixture. 80's looking tile, nothing inviting. But due to the soaked carpet, I called to see if I could get a different room....preferably on the 2nd floor. Tiffany looked, and she was able to get me into the 2nd floor, which seems to be all suites. This room was much nicer, with a new kitchen and high ceilings. The rest of the room could still use some updating, but the bed was clean, the A/C worked, and the shower works. The toilet paper holder was ripped off the wall and just sitting on the counter, which seemed weird. It also had a small balcony, but with a view of nothing.
Shuttle in the morning (4am) was a little late, but still made it in good time.
Overall: If you go, make sure to get a suite not on the ground floor. Do not expect this to be some high end place like Westin or Hilton, its not. But someone traveling on a budget, this will do as long as you get a decent room.
