Great location and superior value in the heart of Denver

This wallet-friendly hotel is situated in Denver's historic Capitol Hill district, known by locals as the home of small music venues, new restaurants and interesting architecture. No skyscrapers here, but the State Capitol, Courthouse and urban residences make for an interesting, diverse neighborhood, complete with urban dining and entertainment minus the tourist-trap feel. Audiophiles love the location, too, which is just across the street from the Fillmore Auditorium and an easy walk to the Paramount Theatre, Ogden Theatre and Bluebird Theatre. 

Highlights
  • Close enough to downtown Denver, yet nestled in a thriving urban neighborhood with local restaurants, dining and music
  • Activities for all ages and interests within walking distance, including historical sites
  • Minutes from the Colorado Convention Center and State Capital
Rooms

After an action-packed day exploring Denver, come and relax in your comfortable room or suite. Each room provides basic amenities such as in-room coffee makers, irons, and safes for all guests. Although the rooms are not packed with luxury amenities and furnishings, value-minded guests return for on the clean, spacious rooms and comfortable beds.

When the weather permits, take a dip in the outdoor pool and hot tub, open Memorial Day to Labor Day. Or venture out on the complimentary shuttle to local attractions within a three-mile radius.

Super Average "Hotel"

This is the sort of hotel you would feel good about paying $50 a night for. The front desk staff were less than cordial nearly every time and with every person I talked with, or heard other's talking to. The pool is closed for the winter (which makes sense) but so is the hot tub. That would have been nice to know before hand. The hotel is clean enough and the cleaning staff was over and above in professionalism. They seem to be fighting a losing battle versus the pot smokers as the hotel smelled very strongly of marijuana and incense covering up marijuana. I was not impressed with the place and will not try to stay there again. It is too bad the place has potential and the location is pretty good. But for what I paid for it, I would expect a lot more, and maybe that was my fault for paying for a hotel after reading reviews that sound a lot like the one I just finish writing.

There is a great coffee/cafe spot right across the street from the hotel. I went there every day I was there and everything was delicious!

Ramada on Colfax

Decent room for the price. The area can feel a bit rough at times to walkers. Took the free hotel shuttle once to 16th Street Mall and that was nice.

Denver at it's highest. Quite literally

This is an older hotel but one that has been taken care of quite well. Staff here have been extremely nice for two visits now. The location is within walking distance from many of the local concert venues on Colfax and is close to the heart of downtown as well. This is a good little refuge in the heart of the nightlife of Denver and it faithfully serves it's duty in the line of Gonzo travelers which grace it's kush scented halls on any given night.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Catch the 15 bus right next to the hotel for about $2.25 and it'll take you one block away from the 16th street mall. Great shopping, dining and drinking without messing with parking! Just a warning though: at the high altitude, alcohol will hit you harder, so take it easy.

sketchy

I stayed up all night bc I couldn't stop scratching. The room had a strange odor, it was dirty, there was a cigar wrapper left from prior guest, the towels were dusty an and there was no hot water. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

Good location, friendly place

If you're ever going to a concert at the Ogden Theater and want to stay somewhere nearby, this hotel is the perfect location. Just 2 blocks from the hotel! The location is great. I never had to use my car once during the stay, as there's various restaurants within walking distance. Sunday, I had a ticket to watch an NFL playoff game and the hotel had shuttle service to and from the game which was great. The rooms are a good size and clean. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The only problem I had was that the walls are thin, I could hear doors slamming from the hallway and in the mornings the traffic was loud too. Next time I would ask for a room that doesn't face Colfax. Overall, I was very happy with my stay here and I would stay here again.

Great place to stay

I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent. Thankful for the shuttle that took us to our meeting. The buffet was just ok and not included in the price. If you want to upgrade from the "ho, hum" motels/hotels, this is the place.
