Price was right for one night. Staff where very friendly and went out of way to get us checked in early. Was nice to have a restaurant on site although cafe would probably be a better description. Free breakfast was ok but would taste so much better with proper cutlery and dishes. Plastic just doesn't work.

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel and I have never been disappointed. I stay here whenever I fly to Denver to visit my elderly parents. Both check in and check out is a breeze with no problems whatsoever. My rooms have always been very clean and the beds and pillows very comfortable. One of the best things about this Quality Inn is their wonderful complementary breakfasts. The food is excellent and very plentiful. A big plus for this hotel is Betty Martinez, the Guest Relations ... Read more

The Quality Inn is not in downtown Denver, but has a free hourly shuttle that works well. Our room was clean and there was an on-site restaurant and bar. The complementary breakfast buffet was well stocked and varied enough. The best feature were the staff who werre very helpful and always smiling. All in all it was good value for the price

This is an affordable hotel in the area. Rooms are comfortable. The huge downside is that it seems that many people stay in the hotel only to get high. Don't be surprised to wake up with the smell of marijuana although in theory smoking is not allowed. Breakfast is very limited but free. I recommend you go to the diner nearby that serves breakfast all day. Bottom line: if you can spend more go else, if not - this hotel is ok for several days. There is a free parking. Free wi-fi is relatively fas... Read more

Overall the stay was nice. There was one downfall which was the shuttle picking my family of 6 up from Elitch Gardens, in which they were almost an hour late and we stood out in a storm. This was due to only having one shuttle running with numerous people waiting to be picked up and dropped off in certain areas of Denver. The other pickups work on time. I would strongly suggest that they add another shuttle or two to accommodate all of their guests as this is a very good perk but they do need mo... Read more

We're here in Denver to attend a conference. Downtown Denver is pricey so we stayed here for a more reasonable price. Long story short, pay the extra to stay elsewhere. This hotel is near NOTHING. U can't walk to anything. Half of our room plugs don't work, lamp doesn't work, tap in kitchenette also doesn't work. Internet is painfully slow, like dial up kind of bad. There are a couple positives - they offer shuttle service to quite a few locations, including several places downtown and the a... Read more

Took in one night here while we was on a road trip across country ! It's clean but had a smell to it ! And the elevators was way to slow to accommodate! It is not very far away from downtown Denver but I would not venture out because it is in a bad area of town ! So if you are looking for a decent hotel go elsewhere! And it was dog friendly!

We had stayed at this hotel a few years ago, and were very disappointed. When we saw that the recent reviews were good, we decided to try it again. We're so glad we did. The room were clean and comfortable. The staff was courteous and friendly. Breakfast was better than most complimentary breakfasts. We come to Denver every year for a conference, and will look forward to staying there again next year.

I thought this hotel was great, they had a large staff and everyone was really nice that I encountered. Each floor has a ice machine and every room has decent view. They've got it all including bar and grill, pool, game room, business center and a great breakfast for free. I would stay there again for sure, its close to a lot of attractions being centrally located.

This hotel has a good location for what we needed, and it has the "bones" to be a great place. However, it seems that upgrades are slow in coming, and touches that could be made, just aren't. What we liked: 1. They had a great meal they put on in the evening for the group I was with! 2. Good breakfast. 3. There is a restaurant on the premises, so if you're very tired, no need to go outside anywhere. 4. Rooms were comfortable with nice pillows. Good sleep. 5. Staff was friendly. 6. Conti... Read more

They had a lot to offer at this hotel. It seemed to be a very popular location. The place was always packed. My least favorite part of the stay was waiting for the elevators. I stay for 5 nights and most nights I took the stairs to avoid the wait. They had a nice selection for breakfast. The restaurant inside the hotel has delicious hot wings, it just took a while for service. The staff was friendly.

The bed was comfy. My son loved the arcade. The pool was open until 10 which was good because we didn't arrive until 8:30. But it got dark shortly after we arrived and the pool wasn't as well lit up for an outdoor pool as I expected. There were two partially eaten breakfast sausages laying about the pool deck with bugs on them. And my floor smelled like weed. We were by the elevator and it started to waft into our room.

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and helpful. They offer shuttle service to and from Elitch's and the aquarium which was great because as with any city, the traffic is horrendous. Our room had some cleanliness issues upon check-in but they were quickly resolved. This hotel has 3 elevators but one was broken during our stay which made the waiting time going up and down a little bit longer because of the hotel occupancy. The morning hot breakfast was great.

Rooms where of good size (reason I gave 4 stars), hotel shows age but everything was in good working order and functional. Smoking is allowed in the hotel which one could notice, we however got a non smoking room and it was OK. Pool was good and nicely appointed - having an outdoor pool was the reason I booked here during a huge summer heat wave. No Airport shuttle off course (too far) didn't use the shuttle for downtown but ordering seemed complicated and they weren't very courteous about it.... Read more

The customer service was impeccable. Everyone working was busy making sure all visitors where taken care of. The hotel lobby was always being cleaned by someone and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel does need to be updated as it appears that the carpet and furniture is old and needs to be replaced. Our room was very clean and the maid staff was very attentive to our needs.

thank u and ur staff for a great weekend. The front desk clerk that checked us in was so very sweet, u don't always get that lucky... she is one in a million. They let us check in early which was fantastic. The only part that wasn't amazing is coming back from the Rockies on Saturday the bar called last call... there was at least 15 people in there and it wasnt but 1030. This happens honestly everytime we stay there, not sure why they don't want to stay late. But once again for a great stay

I stayed here for 4 nights, clean hotel, clean rooms and complete with everything you need. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the corner of the restaurant / bar. Proposed more than varied. Ideally positioned for the various movements to and from the city. They offer a shuttle service to some location, but better be well informed on the course and timing. I`ve not used it, because in the city of Denver is easy to find parking. Recommended.

I want to say that the staff was friendly, but there are many things that could have been way better. 1. The room was way too warm, and you could not get it to cool down at all. The thermostat said it was 60 degrees, but there is no way it was that cool. It was more like 78 degrees in the room. 2. The elevators were extremely slow. Had to wait almost 10 minutes at times to go up or down, and we were only on the 2nd floor. There was only emergency stair access too, so you could not take advan... Read more

Only stayed one night and got in late but very friendly helpful staff. I called from airport after getting in 2 hours late due to weather and they advised I take the train to 38th & Blake and I called when I arrived there and they picked us up on 5 minutes. Room was nothing special but fine and free breakfast was pretty good. And then they kindly drove me to the nearby rental car place so I could get my car ( which was half the price of renting at the airport. All in all a good deal!

Booked a room here for me and my girlfriend in the middle of July for two nights and we were not disappointed! Chose the "room with a view" (701) when booking and they delivered with a gorgeous, romantic, panoramic view of the Denver skyline.

Aside from a fridge not being standard in the room everything else was excellent. The... Read more

This hotel is easy access from interstate 70. It was pet friendly. The room was clean and roomy. Breakfast was included. Staff was very courteous and efficient. We had a king-sized bed which was very comfortable. Only drawback was the elevators. Being on a lower floor of the hotel we had to wait about 5 minutes to get to the lobby. (It was packed with people from upper floors.)

I agree with many of the other posters in their initial hesitancy to book due to the location. The property is NOT a downtown Denver property but they have a full steam shuttle that will take you to and pick you up from everything from the corner grocery all the way up to a Rockies game. The rooms are not the Ritz quality but are just fine. My only gripe as a Diamond Hilton guy is that I'm used to a dedicated desk with desk chair with multiple power connections up top.

This was a good hotel with a decent rate. The location is a little inconvenient but made up for by the good rate and the good quality of the hotel. The staff was very nice. The room was clean and maintained. I had a nice view of the mountains from the 7th floor room. The west face room I was in did have a bit of highway noise cause you are right next to I-70. I would definitely stay here again. The breakfast was a standard hotel breakfast. good coffee.

My husband chose this hotel for its convenient location and queen sized beds. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were big, but the decor was shabby and the wall paper was peeling off in places. Also, the shower did not drain very well. We did tell the desk about the shower when we checked out. The breakfast was delicious, and we liked the free shuttle to the 16th Street Mall. We did not call for a ride back to the hotel because we got a ride back to the hotel from a relative. The prices ... Read more

We stayed here one night. The room was big enough for the four of us, everything was clean and we had a perfect dinner/breakfast. Unfortunatly, I lost my wallet in the room. I realized this back home in The Netherlands. After a email-session with Alissa from the frontoffice, the wallet is now on his way back home. So the staff helped me out well! Conclusion: I enjoyed my stay and I reccomend it to the ones who'd love the great service and a basic, but good room.

This hotel was our first stop on our American Roadtrip. It's always a bit disorientating when arriving after a long flight, and the reception area seemed really busy. We were checked in quite fast and got up to our room with no problems. Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The next day we had breakfast which was good then we used the shuttle to go into town. The pool was a nice area to chill out in after our day exploring Denver. All staff here were really nice.

The first room, the heating didn't work and there was jack hammer construction going on outside at 3 am. The staff are very helpful and moved me to the far side (pool side) which was much more peaceful. However, the room furniture was covered in visible stains - Disgusting. I didn't even want to lay my suit case or clothes on the couch, let alone sit down. I moved to an airbnb after one night at this place and wish I'd done that in the first place!

Thought the bid I won on Priceline was a deal, especially since the property was advertised to be in one of the coolest neighborhoods and it had a pool. Wrong on both counts. The best shuttle took twists and turns through industrial neighborhoods upon pickup from Denver's Union Station. The very helpful and informative driver told us that technically when we went under a particular bridge we were on the outskirts of the desired/advertised neighborhood.

It is my first day and I wonder if I am going to stay. The receptionist put me in the mood because he was so rude. The hotel is in the middle of the freeway and a railway but it is much more noisy inside. The swimming pool doesn't work. The remote control of the TV doesn't work. My car was blocked by a truck. Well if you haven't booked your hotel in Denver you should probably think it twice before choosing this one.

The room was clean and comfortable, with both firm and soft pillows on each bed, and the price was great. The shuttle to the downtown area was great, since parking might have been difficult. The only downside is that it is in an industrial area, and when we returned Saturday night, there was a strong smell of raw sewage outside the hotel. This is not something they could control, I am sure, but it was off-putting. Also, when I went to get a room for the next weekend, the price had gone up 50%,... Read more

The staff was above-average friendly and courteous. The location needed much to be desired the hotel itself had an interesting design but needed to be updated. Tape over the elevator signs parking lot was trashed most of the time I always found something next to my car each time I got into it. The hotel shuttle never went close to where we wanted to go, so I always have to drive and find parking. Once again they're saving grace was there staff.

Stayed on the 8th floor for five days, great service, coulda used a little heat the first day, and that wasn't working but the temps rose to high eighties so that was fine. The rooms are clean, a little worn on the furniture, but clean and the bed was a king size and very comfortable. Close to all the attractions going on this time of year. Thanks for a great vacation, will definitely be back.
