Service was excellent! I was wheeling a cart full of luggage into the hotel and an employee dropped what he was doing and ran up to the door to open it for me. Place could be nicer with renovation--carpet in room looked really stained, rust on doorway in BR, etc--although it seemed clean. Cold H2O faucet didn't work upon our arrival, but they sent a worker to repair it right away. Good location for us--close to all our wedding events at Botanic Gardens.

I enjoyed my stay. However, the neighborhood is a little rough but since I was going across the street to the Ogden it was a perfect location. I also don't understand the hotels hostility toward recreational marijuana. People are coming to Colorado for a lot of reasons legal reefer being one. Get with it. I thought to hotel should include continental breakfast as part of the deal. Most places do these days.

Noise The hotel is located on Colfax Ave next to numerous marijuana places which attract the corresponding people. The sweet smell could be sensed everywhere and that did not exclude the hotel. We spent a week there on business and did not get one single night of good sleep. There were parties going on in the otherwise nice little garden afound the pool with lots of drunk and stoned people. The noise was incredible until usually 4:00 am. Every night we complained about it at the front desk - not... Read more

Our room was a single king bed. It wasn't bad. One of our friends had a 2 double bed and the room was dated with holes in the sheets. Another friend had to switch rooms after they have her a room with an actual key. The new room was dated too. Even though its a no smoking hotel the hallways reeked of pot. The breakfast buffet was out of food but the stuff they did have wasn't bad. The service was horrible.

This is a nice hotel for a great price. A good bang for your buck! By no means is it fancy. It does need some updates but it looks like the hotel was starting some while we were there.

This Ramada was uniquely located near downtown, but with several small shops that connected into the first floor of the hotel. We had a room directly across from the shops and were delighted that there was no extra noise at all from the unusual arrangement. The free downtown shuttle added a lot of value to our stay. Driving and parking in downtown Denver is not easy, and we were happy to have a shuttle driver do it for us, even though it took a bit longer with other pickups and dropoffs.

This hotel is located in Denver's Capitol Hill district, close to public transportation and many small coffee houses, bars and restaurants. The shuttle is helpful to get you downtown.

If I could give them zero stars I would. It was no doubt a great price, so I should expect what I pay for. However when there is blood on the toilet, you should be scared as I was! This is a old run down hotel in a pretty shady side of downtown. I would not walk around there. The rooms are shabby and maybe with their renovations it might be get better. I was grossed out being in the room for 2 nites. Only plus is they have a shuttle service to the city area.

The staff at the Ramada was very pleasant, helpful. The room had a comfortable bed and all rooms are non smoking. Room had a mini fridge and a microwave which I did not use. They provided daily breakfast which was included in the room rate. Ramada provided a shuttle to Coors field and back which was very nice. The shuttle would take you anywhere within 3 or 4 miles of the Ramada which includes Union Station which is where you pick up the A line to the airport. The hotel is within 200 yards of... Read more

First, this hotel is in a really fun area. I enjoyed walking around and exploring as time allowed (I was there on business). Also, the staff is fantastic -- friendly, helpful, and accommodating. However, there are clearly floors that were once smoking floors. The first room I was assigned to smelled absolutely horrible. I did, however, head back downstairs and ask for a new room. They were happy to reassign me. There is ample signage that indicates the hotel is nonsmoking and that there are st... Read more

When I saw this hotel online, it gives a different profile . When we checked in the employees were very friendly, however, we did get the nonsmoking room but when we stepped out of elevator the whole hallway smelled like Marijuana, perhaps the other rooms were smoking. The beds were dirty, we can tell maids do not change bed sheets as they had black long hairs everywhere, the pillows smelled like someone had slept on them, not the clean smell of fresh sheets or pillow cases. The bathroom was d... Read more

I got a room here online based off the reasonable prices and the high rating through Kayak. The reality is, it is in a seedy part of Denver, surrounded by bars and liquor stores. Patrons and bar hoppers openly smoke pot in front of the hotel with zero enforcement by management. My room faced an all night outside Karioki bar. I asked to be moved but was told I was out of other rooms available. If I had known the area better I would have paid another 150 bucks and stayed uptown. The only ... Read more

Starting with the positive which is why I am giving this 2 stars instead of 1. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. However, the room was awful. The main outlet where the coffee pot was did not work. The carpeting was dirty and simply gross. We got a handicap accessible room, not by request, and shower/toilet area was separated by a torn shower curtain. The shower was a removable wand, that could not be utilized successfully when it was attached to the wall. There was no toilet pa... Read more

Check-in was quick and easy and the staff are helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and keep clean, the hotel does have a pool, but wasn't in use the time I was there. There's plenty of bars, restaurants and fast food places, within walking distance of the Hotel. The hotel is about 1 and a half miles from 16th st mall and 3 miles from The Mile high stadium.

So the hotel itself was a little run down and sat in a bit of a urban location but that said it was clean, and quiet, had a lounge and restaurant , great location (check out the fancy places price), super staff, and awesome free shuttle service running to a variety of locations (including Union Station for getting to the airport) from (I believe) 7 am until 10 pm on the hour. Would I rather stay in a $ 300 a night room? Sure. Who wouldn't . All things being equal, very satisfied

If you're looking for a hotel in the heart of Denver with plenty of entertainment within walking distance, then this is the place for you. Within a few blocks you've got The Fillmore and The Ogden Theater, restaurants, bars, liquor stores (I recommend Argonaut), and a pot store (which you can not smoke in your room, of course). It's just an average 3 star type of hotel but they were beginning a renovation when I stayed there, so that should bump it up into a much nicer 3 star hotel. I'll defi... Read more

This is a below average hotel for the price and location. It didn't feel/look very clean. I actually went to the closest grocery store to buy disinfecting wipes for all the surfaces in my room. There were repairs needed in my room (heat/air unit had a bare wall opening). Property is in the remodel process so that will be good.

I will start with saying that I looked at the reviews for this hotel before I arrived. I knew it had a mixed review history and that it was in a spot that was supposed to be a little rough.

Our trip started out extremely early in Colorado. We called the night before to see if we could do early check in. We were told that the hotel was sold out the night before so to call when we got in and see if rooms were available. Early check in before 2P is $30. We called the morning we got in (Friday) and there were not rooms available. We came back around 12P and there still weren't any. We went back around 2P and there was a room. It was in the process of being cleaned when they let us in. ... Read more

The hotel is in rough shape although there are signs up that remodel is coming soon. It just looks worn and dirty, although it may be clean. The internet was awful most of the time.

I liked mostly everything about my stay. Liked being close to downtown and that they had hourly shuttles to take you to places.

Capitol Hill area is worth seeing and this place is right there. BUT it needs lots of work cause it must be older than I am. It is a adventure in itself. We had fun! I grew up 4 blocks north of Colfax in old town Aurora, you don't want to stay anywhere near that area, but was fun driving all the way down Colfax from Tower Road to I-70 near the foothills. There is a great Irish Pub right across the street.

While this is one of the least expensive hotels in the Denver Downtown area, it is not quite worth all of the troubles to me. Let me list the pros first: cheap, decent shuttle service, close proximity to night life/food/downtown, and comfy lobby area. However, the cons outweigh: a very limited free breakfast (have to pay for anything hot), a front desk girl that normally says she doesn't know how to do that, and outdated and unclean rooms. In my room specifically, the baseboard was falling off ... Read more

This hotel is well located to enjoy Denver. The breakfast is plain average. We had booked for four with request for a cot and two beds. Before arriving we called to be sure that the cot was arranged and staff said yes. We got theee at 945, no cot. One of us had to sleep on the floor. Manager next day gave us a cot and said problem was new staff. No reduction offered. Rooms are nice but not when sleeping on carpet!!
