I stayed here a few times as a kid...it’s been 20+ years. It was dated then, but I saw that it had been renovated and under new management. I thought it would be fun to bring my kids here on our way through Colorado and let them watch a movie on the big screen from the room. We got an accessible room as it was the pet friendly one from which we could view the movie.
This is going to sound pretty negative to start, but these are general cleanliness things I noticed. I checked sheets (I always do) and those appeared clean and bed was well-made. However, the walls had multiple stains on them (that a good scrub/wipe down could take care of), there were a good bit of crumbs around the bottoms of the beds I noticed immediately when I walked in, the carpets looked like they really needed a better vacuuming and a shampoo (I found an old pill on the floor), there were hand and face(?) smudges on the long mirror, a broken lamp shade, and a broken wood panel that kept falling off the side table. Most of theses things I noticed as time went during our stay and none were “deal breakers” (like dirty sheets would have been), so I didn’t mention it during our 2 night stay. We really only slept there as we were out-and-about most of the day.
I did find a small black spider in my bed on first check and my husband brushed a black widow off his head that came out of a clean towel...which, I know is just a random thing, and it’s Colorado and there are bugs, but I didn’t notice any other bugs, so maybe just need a pest spray for spiders, or maybe we were just unlucky in that regard.
Positives: the beds and pillows were really comfortable. The room was spacious, and the bathroom was clean. Good water pressure in the shower. The room smelled very nice when we walked in. The fridge, microwave, and TV all worked well and looked pretty new/were clean. The manager was very pleasant and helpful. We used the laundry room which was clean and had good machines for a good price. The movie was a bit hard to see from our room unless sitting at the table, but the sound came through very well and we enjoyed it.
Honestly, if a few of those cleanliness things hadn’t been there I would have a much better review. Maybe something I might expect if I was paying $70 a night...but not $110. Those are all easy things to fix, though, so I would at least give them another shot. Maybe we just got the one-off. less
