Reasonably Priced

LaQuinta was within walking distance to LoDo and the price at $120/night was good for that location. It was what I expected for a LaQuinta. The staff was courteous and helpful. It's near the train depot so it was a bit loud at times.

My stay

The hotel suited my visit well. It was located about 1 mile from downtown. My room didn't have a refrigerator nor microwave but served its purpose. Overall good experience if you would like a hotel that is clean and accessible to points of Denver.

No complaints but not amazing

I enjoyed having a free breakfast but I wasn't super thrilled with the room. You get what you pay for...which is a comfortable fairly clean room but not a 5 star hotel. I would stay there again.

Nice room, close enough to downtown

Didn't realize that the rooms all have doors that lead directly outside (no hallways) which was kind of annoying since it was pouring rain, but the outdoor walkways are covered to we stayed pretty dry. The room was actually pretty nice, nothing mind-blowing though. The shower was a tub/shower, not a full stand-up shower. The internet service was *very* spotty and basically unusable. We tried to use our cell phones instead, but the reception there is pretty terrible.

Very poor locattion

LaQuinta in is only about 8 minutes from Denver's dowtown theatre area but is in a very bad part of town, "Globeville". We missed the only turn into the motel and had to backtrack several miles and redo journey. In the daylight we could see tracks where cars had gone up and over the curb to get into the motel when they missed the turn. Place was very run down but the breakfast area seemed cleaner. The pool had stuff floating in it. I would bypass this one!
