    Pet friendly but dirty

    There was no pet fee, which was nice, but the beds were dirty with stains all over the sheets and comforters.

    Umm, not what I expect from LQ

    Okay, i realize prices fluctuate from day to day and I'll admit I made my reservation only a week before so I was charged just shy of $200 for one night. I really don't mind paying $200 a night, but it better be a superior hotel for that price. This was NOT. The room was small, but adequate. It is an older hotel with outdoor hallways. I was staying there for a dog show and one thing I really need, other than a clean bed, is a fridge for the dog treats. My room did not have one. The beds seemed clean, but the floor in the bathroom had hair and some sort of residue on it that I wiped down before letting the dogs in there. The shower curtain had quite a bit of mold/mildew on it. I've stayed at LQ many times in the past as it is almost always my "go to" hotel when I'm traveling with my pups, and have always been pleased, but not this time. The only plus is that the beds did seem clean, but that's a really low bar for $200/night in the outskirts of Denver. Sad, because I was really hoping for a nice hotel in that area for frequent visits.

    Convenient location for a staycation!

    Did a recent staycation at an old favorite! Since the last time we were here with our dog, there’s been a lot of new construction. It’s louder than before but still clean and comfortable.

    Not for solo female travelers

    I obviously didn't read enough of the reviews. The location and price were good and the reviews I read were positive, but I checked in and left an hour later to find a safer hotel. Lots of sketchy people just hanging out, lurking outside my room, smoking, watching my coming and going. Pretty sure I saw a dog fight in the parking lot. The hotel itself was old but fairly clean and the staff was friendly. If you're not traveling alone, it's tolerable for a one night stop. But if you're alone, go somewhere else.

    Good location

    If you need just a quick stay with your animals, La Quinta is great. The only issue was had was that there were construction workers outside our door that were a little loud and rowdy and our dogs are Shih Tzus so they tend to be protective and will bark if they feel our area is being invaded. I called the front desk and they took care of it right away. It is close to two restaurants and a convenience store and plenty of areas to walk your furbabies. So that was a plus. Rooms a little on the small side but for this being the first time we brought our animals to a hotel, it wasn’t bad at all.

    Awesome Room

    i got a king room with a great rate, and the staff was all very helpful. big area for doggy walking too. the only thing that bothered me was the sketchy people that were around.

    Great Stay!

    I booked hoping the bad reviews were wrong, we were very pleased with our stay! Love that it was motel style and we could just walk outside with our pups. Very clean and well maintained. Perfect for a one night stay!

    Great location.

    Decent outside area for dog to use. Old facility, but clean as can old facility can be. Staff was super nice. Bathroom could use so updating! Amenities close and easy to get to.

    Drive past and find another place to stay.

    Stayed at other La Quintas and were very satisfied. This one wasn’t very clean. It felt like the bottom of the tub/shower was going to fall out, not stable. Woke up to a room full of ants that covered anything that was left on the floor. Fortunately most of our luggage was off of the floor. I wiped up most of the ants with wet towels, shook them out and left them outside the door. I told the manager and her response was indifferent. Unfortunate experience...

    What a let down

    Rooms average. Old motel style with the room door to the exterior. More dog poop on the property than there were blades of grass- not even safe on the sidewalk. My advice: Pay extra for a different hotel.

    Nice place with one major exception

    Maybe it was an anomaly, but we had no hot water -- which made for a miserable shower after a long day. Otherwise, it was a great room at a reasonable price.

    Comfortable Room and Good Breakfast

    Our room was very comfortable. Good breakfast. The outside is dated and old, but what matters is the rooms and breakfast food offered. No dog fee is a huge plus.

    Nice hotel

    This was a nice hotel for the price. The view from our room was gorgeous, overlooking the rocky mountains. Lots of construction going on around the building, but it was all done at a decent hour. The pet area was small, but a little more secluded than others that we have been to, which made it easier on my dog. Theres an amazing custard place next door that sells "pawbenders". That made the entire stay worth it for us!

    Dirty run down dump

    This was far and away the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. At night, multiple people loitering around the filthy property, smoking at this “non-smoking” hotel. There are multiple pet areas, which is awesome, but two of them were littered with trash and dog waste. The entire hotel is right off the freeway, very noisy at all hours with truck traffic, outdoors, and feels unsafe. The one luggage rack on the property is absolutely unusable, there were multiple areas where the exterior paint needs to be redone. Oh, and did I mention there is NO HOT WATER? After a loud miserable stay, I had to take a cold shower. Filthy, run down, miserable stay. But reasonable if you have pets. Next time I would pay more and stay literally anywhere else in Denver. This was a nightmare. The La Quinta in Albuquerque is nicer, indoors, cleaner, better customer service, and much more dog friendly. So it is not related to the La Quinta brand... it’s just this specific location that needs to be mowed down and rebuilt from scratch.

    Motel Accommodations

    I found this hotel to be very unclean. I booked a double queen bed room (the lowest rate listed here) and was given the option of either the second or third floor upon check in. Since the hallways are exterior, I thought it best - for noise - to be on the third. If your dog doesn’t like to hear noise, this was a good option, as the parking lot was very busy on the first floor, with the exterior hallways. For some reason, many hotel guests were hanging out in the halls this evening.

    They do allow you to leave a crated dog in the room alone, which worked out well for me to take the quick drive to Red Rocks. You can’t beat the location to this venue. While others have touted the proximity to a Denny’s and gas station, it wasn’t a perk for me. The grounds still remain torn up and under construction. It is right off the highway, and two semi truck cabs parked adjacent to the hotel lot overnight. Just expect a motel vibe.

    The mattress was VERY old and there was a lot of hair on the mattress cover (I looked under the linen on this one). The linens were old and worn - beginning to lose their white color.

    The coffee maker in the room was not clean. They provided shampoo only, no conditioner or lotion. Wear shoes, as the carpet was sticky! I didn’t set the bar too high, but they did not meet my expectations.

    Clean, Renovated on Inside

    Our beginning plans was to stay in Denver, Co, preferably at a La Quinta, but reviews were not good. Drove a little more to Denver,Co to make sure we were staying in a clean, dog friendly area since we are traveling with a goldendoodle. From the outside, it might seem old and outdated but they have renovated the inside. Also, side note. This is an outside hotel, I always feel skeptical of outside hotels but this one felt safe and it was easier for us due to having a dog. The front desk recommended us to stay in first floor so it’s easy access to take our dog outside to use the bathroom. The inside room was spotless, and I was very pleased with this hotel. There is a Denny’s and a gas station close by! Also, a pet smart located 5 min down the road if you need to stop to stock up on anything you might need for your dog! It was a lifesaver for us!

    Overnight Stay with 2 dogs

    The staff were very accommodating and pleasant. No issues with the two dogs.
    There is construction going on around the hotel limited some of the places to walk a dog, otherwise there is ample space. Ask for a courtyard room, no road noise at all.

    Very Nice

    Clean and very suitable. There’s a nice public, free dog park a short drive away that made the stay better for our pup.

    Short stay with our Dane pup

    We stayed here for one night during a long road trip. Yes, it is an older building where the doors lead straight outside (which for those traveling with dogs may be a plus--it was for us!) but the interior is very nicely updated. We had no issues with noise from the road or other guests. Our room was clean and nicely updated and there were plenty of green areas for our dog.
