“Best hotel on my trip”
Reviewed 10 July 2012 via mobile

Recently stayed at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, a Doubletree in Denver, the Boulderado in Boulder, and the Golden in Golden. Of the four the Golden had the best service, best room, and best value. Also we really enjoyed the town. We were there for their First Fridays event. They created a festival atmosphere. While we were there we drove up Lookout Mtn., visited the Buffalo Bill museum, went gold mining outside Cenral City, had great pizza in Idaho Springs, went to Colorado railroad museum, and even was able to go to a Dale Chihully art glass exhibit....all during the two night part of our trip at the Golden in Golden. We will be back again. Nice Hotel.

Stayed July 2012, travelled as a couple

This hotel is very nice. My family and I stayed for 6 nights. Beds were very comfortable. Refrigerator in room, but no microwave.
Single cup coffee maker. Very clean, friendly staff.

My family and I stayed 6 nights for vacation. The room was very clean, the staff was friendly. We did not eat at the restaurant though, but we heard the food was very good. The hotel has a nice view of Clear Creek and it is very convienent to most everything you would want to see in Golden. ( Most are in walking distance). It does have a workout room, but no pool. No continental breakfast, room has fridge but no microwave. They did have one in the lobby though. Coffee maker was a single serve one cup brew. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Plenty of parking, maintenance was always there 'round the clock. Overall my family and I were pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: If you like quiet opt for a room on the backside of the hotel. The front side faces Washington Ave...

I recently stayed at Golden Hotel the night before my wedding, we ate on the patio and the food and service were very good. We also recommended this hotel to our out of town guest to stay at for our wedding.... Everyone LOVED the hotel. They said the service was great, the food was great, and they will be back. Thank you Golden Hotel for taking such good care of our friends and family.

Spent four nights in this lovely hotel in the centre of town, the external look doesn't do justice to the warm welcome inside. All the staff we're very friendly, my room was very spacious & clean, with interent connection and the food in the restaurant was excellent too. Nice walks up the Clear Cleak and the main street and not too far to the Coors Brewery either !!!

This was the perfect choice for Golden. It is right in the center of town so that you can walk to restaurants or stroll along the Clear Creek paved path. Gorgeous view of Clear Creek from our room. The only thing wrong was that one lamp in our room did not work and even though it was reported, it wasn't fixed.

The in-hotel restaurant seemed really popular because there was always a wait to get in. For that reason, we didn't eat there.

For sandwiches, try the D-Deli a short walk down the street.

The Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum, the Golden History Museum, Astor House Museum and the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum are within walking distance,

The attractions for which you'll need wheels are: Red Rocks Amphitheater, Dinosaur Ridge, the Colorado Railroad Museum, Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum, and Lookout Mountain.

This hotel is really nice, including the lobby.

We traveled from Ohio to CO for my son's wedding. This hotel was "over the top"
accommodating to my family and out of town guests. The rooms are clean and quiet, the food is excellent and the location next to the creek and walking/bike paths were peaceful and beautiful. My family members could spend their free time walking to shops, restaurants, the visitor center and the walking trails in just minutes. Downtown Golden is beautiful, clean and was easy for my guests to access. I received rave reviews from everyone for picking this location. No one needed a car to get around which eliminated a lot of stress for my guests. I held a brunch in the courtyard for 50 people day after the wedding, outdoors on the creek. It was spectacular! They have a shuttle service for guests. Jon the driver was wonderful! Don't miss this place if you are looking for a get together or just a place to relax. We give it 5 stars!

Room Tip: They have corner rooms that are more spacious. Some rooms have nicer views of the mountains.
