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.

Broncos Playoff Game

The room was very clean as was the grounds. The staff was very friendly & immediately help with an overflowing toilet. The temp was in the single digits but yet the rooms were very warm & comfortable before we even turned on the heat...actually we never turned on the heat during the night. Although this has no reflection on the motel...the store next door (as in many other places) has bums hanging out front.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If coming from the airport (and have no rental car) PAY for a round trip ticket using the shuttle service...Taxi will cost as much for 1 way as the shuttle does for round trip.

sound night's sleep close to downtown

I stayed at this La Quinta two years before and had a good experience. This visit again provided a good night's rest that is close to Denver downtown and area activities, but without the walking-distance price premium. I was in Denver for four days work and had to travel north two evenings, so I wasn't concerned about being able to walk everywhere. The first night I booked at another national brand hotel and that turned out to be a disaster, no rest all night. I tried this La Quinta again and was very satisfied, clean, quiet (even though right next to freeway) room, decent breakfast, and downtown in a few minutes. The restaurant next door was recommended as good, but I could not get service there; they are very disorganized.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If you need to be near Broadway/Welton, there are several self-serve parking lots that charge $4.50-5.00 per day instead of the $18 and up parking garage rates, but you need cash.

good hotel but far from downtown

I was in Denver to attend a conference in downtown. I liked the hotel because it had free wifi and a decent breakfast (with fresh fruits). The room was clean. I didn't like the fact that it was a 30 min walk from downtown (16th street shopping). The staff was friendly.
