The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with praise going to the hotel's staff, value and location.

The hotel's staff were praised by numerous guests, who characterized them as accommodating, friendly, professional and helpful in providing directions.

Many reviewers were pleased with the hotel's value. They described the rates as reasonable, affordable, inexpensive and budget friendly, and cited the hotel's free area shuttle as greatly adding to the hotel's overall worth.

Several lodgers complimented the hotel's location, and found it to be close to Denver's downtown, as well as restaurants, pubs, The Filmore, Coors Field, Pepsi Center, Ogden Theatre and highway access. It should be noted, however, that a few patrons had complaints about the location (see below).

The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some common complaints about the rooms, the location and noise transfer.

While the majority of guests found their rooms to be clean and comfortable, some reviewers had complaints. They reported poor/slow Wi-Fi connectivity, dated decor and furnishings, worn carpets, cigarette odours (despite the hotel's smoke-free policy) in guest rooms and some plumbing issues.

Although numerous lodgers were pleased with the hotel's proximity to Denver's downtown and local attractions, a few reviewers were disappointed with its location. They found the area to be somewhat rough or rundown, and reported some homeless people in the area. It was also mentioned by a few guests that the hotel was farther from the downtown than the hotel's name implies. 

Noise transfer was mentioned by a few reviewers, who reported noise in rooms facing Colfax Ave., well as noise from guests in adjacent rooms and the courtyard. guest reviews rated the hotel 3.3 out of 5 with a 70% recommendation rate from 1,329 reviews. guest reviews rated the hotel 3.2 out of 5 from 931 reviews. guest reviews ranked the hotel #76 of 144 Denver hotels with an average rating of 3 out of 5 from 338 reviews.

Guest Recommendations
A convenient modest hotel close to downtown.
"I always stay at the Ramada on E. Colfax when I visit the Denver Art Museum. I can walk to 16th Street, get a bus to go around town and walk to the Denver Art Museum and back. It is a basic good hotel, the staff has remained pretty much the same over the past few years. They are friendly and helpful."

"Best place to stay because of central location to downtown Denver."
Robert l from Colorado Springs, CO US rated Ramada Denver Downtown 10 out of 10 on December 13, 2009
"1) Did not appreciate being solicited by homeless in the lobby of the Ramada on more then one occasion. They come in frequently and just sit on the couches or ask for money or you to purchase something. 2)Staff at the front desk do not wear names tags so you couldn't identify them to put in a complaint. However, the woman who multi-task by working at front desk, driving the shuttle bus was the rudest woman I've ever met. Shame on an established that allow people to come into work unkempt in appearance. 3) The shuttle bus service was extremely poor and much grace was given as there was a large veteran's conference happening in Denver so waiting a hour for a shuttle was reasonable. Don't say it will take a 1/2 hour when it is a hour. 4)Few channels on the TV, local calls are 75 cents. Shame. The rear parking lot had no lights on. Not wise or safe in that neighbourhood. Nice to know that staff at front desk don't discriminate against the homeless but please sitting on the furniture in the lobby for long periods of time should not be happening. Sure glad I didn't have young children with me. Now the enjoyable things. The rooms were clean, pool was clean, after throughly stripping the best I can say the sheets were clean. Oh I really enjoyed seeing prostitutes and pimps walking by the motel a first for me. And it was great knowing the street was being patroled by Guardian Angels as in New York. And I must say that was just one Ramada I've been to others that have been beautiful. I was glad they called the fire dept when there was smoke in the halls."
