Amerika wir kommen. Nach einem leckeren Weisswurstfrühstück am Airport steigen wir in die United Maschine nach Chicago. Anders als erwartet sitzen wir in einer Dreierreihe und bei Amerikanern im Flugzeug weiss man ja nie... Und genau, das Unheil kommt. "I think this is my place" sagt Mr. Oversize und platscht neben mir in den Sitz. Die Armlehne …
Tuesday 22nd December
Monday I checked out early and spent the day in Dallas chilling and got on the greyhound to Denver at 6pm. I think now is a good time to reiterate how bad the buses are! The people vary from teen runaways, Mexican immigrants, muggers, murderers, drug dealers and smelly old people!!!! The heating is either red hot or …
We arrived at the Denver Airport and found there is no cheap and easy way to get Downtown. Taxis are $50, the shuttle is $19pp and the bus is $10pp but then you will need a cab to get to the hotel so we took the shuttle.
The hotel was rundown and there was a scary wreath of twigs and flowers above the bed. After our experience with bed …
On our way to Denver yesterday we lost a battle with nature for the first time on our trip. We have successfully braved high winds, scalding heat and chilling cold, but we were no match for the deep, frosty snow that awaited us on the high mountain pass out of town. We were told that the route to Denver over Liberty Pass would be very beautiful and …

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Inn Downtown Denver
We stayed at the Ramada in late August 2005 for two nights, and that was plenty.
My wife and I spent a week in July at the Ramada Denver downtown and it was very pleasant. Our room was comfortable with a King size bed, a table and two chairs, dressing table and closet outside the bathroom, and a small but clean bathroom.
Management made our trip as smooth as glass
Since we were unfamilar with Denver, the courtesy shutle was incredibly convenient. The management ensured we that we had transportation right when we needed it. Free high-speed internet was a nice touch. We also enjoyed a reduced rate becaue we were only staying a few hours.
I stayed here in February 2005. I chose it because of the price and the location. It's about a mile from the Capitol and is cheaper than anything else in the area. Granted, like the others say, the neighborhood can be a bit sketchy (I was panhandled upon walking 2 blocks west). It has a post office, liquor store, and bodega across the street. The Mexican Restaurant kitchen was closed for repairs when I was there, but the bar was open. The restaurant staff was friendly. The room and the hotel were very clean. There were kids playing in the hot tub, but I didn't investigate its cleanliness myself. Hotel staff was courteous and professional. Bottom line: if you're looking for a cheap but clean hotel in downtown Denver and don't mind an occasional panhandler, don't hesitate to stay here.
Definitely not the hotel of choice for condescending middle-class yuppie snobs with the luxury SUV, 2.5 kids and 1.5 dogs who are frustrated because they can't afford the $175 a night Adam's Mark a mile away.
Area is sketchy but the hotel is great
Driving to the hotel I got a bit nervous about the location. It's in a sketchy area about 1 mile away from the better areas of downtown. When I spoke to the staff, I was initially unimpressed by their colloquial manner towards me, the guest. As the stay went on, I came to appreciate their friendly demeanor and found them to be very competent from the front desk to the shuttle drivers. The shuttle to downtown, runs every hour and will work with you if you miss the time or pickup. If I were to stay in Denver again, I would choose this hotel over others in the downtown that are twice the price. If cost were not an issue, I would choose one of the hotels closer to the 16th st mall.
Good Value Hotel
Picked this hotel because of the price - relatively cheap. When I arrived I realised why - seedy area indeed. However I can't fault the hotel. The rooms are large clean and with very good amenities. The Mexican restaurant is very good - recommend the breakfast. The Hawalian guy in the bar is very friendly - say hello to him. The pool is a disappointment - small and unclean looking although the sun terrace is nice. If you want a good value hotel within walking distance of the main centre then stay here. But luxury it isn't.
Well, aberrant billing problems aside, the hotel is an fine basic choice for staying in Denver. Its location, simplicity and price are strong selling points, but the decor, pool, and restaurant are useless.If you've got a rental car the large free parking lot is pretty convenient--esp if you don't want to bother with expensive and annoying valets at downtown hotels. The colfax location is central but just a little seedy--if you appreciate classic downtown diners, country-western gay bars, and funky record stores, this isn't bad at all. The best part was feeling like I could come and go as i pleased, without calling for the car, or walking through a busy lobby scene.However, the country western decor is ridiculous and overwhelming. The pool is more like a bathtub, completely taken over by 3 or 4 splashing kids the whole time i was there. The rooms are kind of bland, almost dingy. But, once again, for $70/night, you're doing okay.No staff or billing problems for me, but my sympathies to anyone who has to deal with crap like that.
Think twice... three... four times before staying at the Downtown Denver Ramada. Perhaps, like me, you might get billed twice for your stay and have to spend hours of your life trying to clear the matter up with a franchise who has no interest in your fate or your money.
