I was able to get a much better rate first off by using a booking app rather than the price given by hotel same-night on the phone. Front desk was friendly but not accommodating, considering they were slow and not expecting many more same night walk in reservations. Asked for the room to be switched from double beds to one single bed -- they denied my request unless willing to pay more. Requested late checkout (one hour) -- they denied my request without being personable or accommodating at all. The housekeeping staff knocked only door twice in the morning prior to the stated check-out time (11am) to clean my room, rather than having a better system of knowing when the guests have already checked out or waiting until after 11am. It was a disturbance and not organized.
Website says pools open, but the pool is closed for maintenance. Coffee machine in room looked like its never been cleaned so I did not want to even risk making coffee. I like that they offered "breakfast bags" since the hot breakfast stations are no longer offered, you submit your order the night before. DON'T order the breakfast burrito. Looks questionable and I would not feed that to my kids, not knowing the quality of the ingredients.
Beds and pillows VERY comfortable, I had a great sleep. TV, fridge, desk, and lots of lighting in the room. Try to request a room not on the first floor so you window isn't on the ground floor of the parking lot. Location is close to stores, restaurants, gas stations etc. Access to vending machines and self-pay laundry in the main areas. NO water fountains.
Went down to Denver for a 50th Anniversary party. Lots of hotels were more expensive than this one. The Denver West was neat, clean and friendly. Even had a robot pancake maker in the breakfast room. I hadn't seen one of those before. An uneventful visit--just what you want in a hotel.
husband & wife (late 50s) arrived on late flight into Denver & needed place to stay on W side of downtown Denver to avoid rush hour traffic when headed to Roaring Fork Valley on I 70W next AM; we selected this based on Internet search; turns out Wheat Ridge is practically in Denver, but was on the correct side of downtown; we could have gone farter out from airport, but could not tell this until actually had visited; hotel helpful in that late arrival was no obstacle; front desk young guy was pleasant & helpful w/late night dining options (we ended up @ Denny's but Fat Shack was tempting!); room basic, price fair, breakfast fine; neighborhood OK
The inside of this hotel is brown - very brown. I think that was an 80s thing, or was it 70s? Hallways, carpets, room walls, etc. The overall effect is needing an update, and a cleaner carpet than our room had. Many rooms do not have microwaves and ours did not. I could have caught that in hotel details online, maybe, but I did not. It wasn't horrible, but I'd look for another option next time. The location is very close to the highway, but buffered by another hotel, so noise was minimal. The parking lot is small, which keeps out big trucks.
I recently stayed at the Comfort Inn for 13 days with my husband who had a job nearby in Wheat Ridge. The hotel was pleasant and accommodating even for our dog who had to make the trip out west with us. Colorado is a nice dog friendly state! There is a dog park adjacent to the hotel and plenty of spaces to walk.
I had breakfast every morning which was normal hotel fare. It was always plentiful and a good start to my day. 1-70 is close by so I could easily hop on the interstate and head towards the mountains.
I wish I could give this place five stars just for the staff. They are an excellent crew. Each of them were always friendly and helpful. They really go out of their way to make people feel comfortable.
Unfortunately, I had to give four stars just for the state of our room. Choice Hotels are 90% used with the my husband's employer while on the road so we are familiar with the nice comfy pillow top beds offered by others. Sadly this hotel has older beds and I felt like I was sleeping on a rock slab. Also, there were not nearly enough electrical outlets (one didn't even work) and nowadays USB's and electrical outlets are so important. We had to keep rotating devices just to get everything charged. We also thought the television was horrible. HD please!!
I would love to see the rooms get modern updates . With the staff they have it would help send the hotel into a higher level.
