Located 15 miles east of downtown, the airport area caters to travelers who have early or late flights. Nearby, environmental work is helping turn the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge into an urban oasis.see all hotels in Aurora
My husband and I got lost trying to find the hotel. There are two places with the same address in Aurora. The parking lot had no lights nor security. When we went to our car early morning, we noticed a car next to ours had gotten broken into. The windows were smashed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible Customer Service Skills"
I thought that the customer service was terrible. AC did not work in room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate but lacking"
We arrived one day early and called to add a room to our stay. The gentleman that helped me as we were traveling in the middle of the night was extremely helpful and professional. He kept us in the same room which was great. The room was big enough to be comfortable. However, the wifi was a nightmare and barely worked when it worked at all. I don't […] wish to imagine what the spot on the sofa was. Also, security was sorely lacking. The second night, we had to get a new keycard to get in the room and they gave one to my son without even questioning if it was his room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience of location to the airport"
Apparently this Hotel was under a different name not too long ago. It is an old building. The carpet in the room had no padding, was in very poor condition (burn holes or black stains throughout), The chairs and couch had stains of various type (like lip stick). The throw on the foot of the bed had stains of some type also (like lip stick), the toilet […] is a power flush which wakes everyone in the nearby rooms including mine, the shower enclosure in each corner where it meets the tub had either bacteria, mold, or rust, the tub drained very slowly, water would be up to the ankles, the breakfast was seven dollars (buffet style), -----the good point was being close to the airport for free shuttle the next morning, early check-in, location to surrounding eating locations and businesses, pleasant check-in desk folks, plenty of rooms, very spacious room I was given, had microwave, refrigerator, coffee brewer Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrrived the young woman at the desk was overwhelmed. She was alone on duty and there were four guests waiting to sign in and hotel guests stopping to ask questions along with the phone constantly ringing.When we were taken care of she was very polite and accommodating. At 11pm doors were banging and loud conversations in surrounding rooms. […] We had a 4:25am wake-up call. Called desk at 11:30 to ask for someone to check out the noise. Manager apologized that she was alone on duty and waiting for driver to return from airport to check. At midnight noise continuing. Told that that was totally unacceptable. She apologized and gave us a new room on the same floor opposite side of the building. Finally got to sleep around 1am to rise at 4:15am. The manager apologized for the disruptions of the night. She was super...too bad the other "guests" were not. Left us with a bad experience and wondering if we would ever repeat staying at a Clarion! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I showed up at the motel after 11pm to a lady at the front desk talking on her phone, then after awhile she acted like I was bothering her when all I wanted to do was check in. I asked her when breakfast was and she proceeded to tell me they only serve a buffet for $7.00. No continental breakfast like the signage said. Very disappointed when breakfast […] is charged and there is a Denny's and McDonalds right next door for cheaper. Also, when checking into the motel i had to sign a waiver saying motel isn't responsible for theft whether from my hotel room or my car. left a very uneasy feeling. I also had a dirty room & when I used the coffee it was not refilled in my room the next day. Tv had 21 channels and half were sports. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It took 1 hour 20 minutes to get picked-up by the hotel shuttle and then an additional 15 minutes to get to the hotel. After a 4 hour flight, this was TOO LONG of a wait. Other airport shuttles came through 3 or 4 times in that same period of time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room, Hotel Pool Disgusting"
Walking into the hotel you were hit with a musty dirty smell, elevator area was cluttered with trash. We were very leary at this point but pleasantly surprised at the size of our rooms & the cleanliness. Then we went to relax in the pool. It was so disgusting. It was not clear at all&you couldn't see the bottom. I am surprised that it was allowed to […] be opened. Hideous! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel but service was not good"
It started off good but then someone else walked into our hotel room and the excuse was confusion in the system and the girl at the front desk was just to young to pay attention.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Should have been better!"
I did not get what I expected from the Clarion name. Reception desk staff was aloof. Room was ok until we realized that the Air conditioning didn't work. And then the blow dryer didn't work. We called down to the front desk and basically were told "tough" - they would fix it later - after we checked out. The location was convenient to the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Actually a real dump."
Hair in my bed and no response for new sheets. Had to go down and get them myself. Outdated and dumpy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not staying here again"
Pool was horribly hot. We booked through a third party and were told that we had to pay for the airport shuttle service when we got there- even though they advertise free shuttle. Receptionist was unfriendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicer in days gone by"
King mini suite - Great Bed! A/C unit did not cool properly; half wall also blocked the air flow, chair and sofa both had worn out springs, lav faucets did not have cold water, lav drains 95% blocked, breakfast costs $7.00, but there is a Denny's next door, great convenient parking. This is still a nice place, just a little threadbare. We would stay […] again but would insist on a room inspection prior to signing anything. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Slow check In no breakfast ready"
Not friendly non accessable ice. Understaffed slow ck innGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was not clean; no detailed cleaning; elevator floor looks as it has not ever been vacuumed, as well as majority of edges/corners in rooms. Had many broken items within the room (lamp, robe hook, a/c lid) Maintenance and cleanliness of this hotel is low. This hotel ownership has changed hands 3 times in 3 years!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I think that when someone checks in the clerk could stop talking on the phone to her friends and take care of the guest. Also on check out, there were 5 people behind the counter but I had to wait for one girl to finish a reservation on the phone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
like nearly all airport hotels, it is a place to lay your head amongst traffic noises,and to get a shuttle to a flight. In my opinion they are all overpriced for this service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the trash cans in mu hotel room were full when i arrived and there was a tampon wrapper in the bathroom trash can. those were major turn offs. however the room itself was a great size for the price. overall this place was okay. would have been a lot better had there not been trash already in my roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The building is in need of mechanical improvements. Elevators questionable at best. Plumbing in shower did not drain and had mold because of it. Hotel staff are friendly and try to help where they can.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I have really learned my lesson."
I was most disappointed with the rating of this hotel, it was rated a 3.5 which is an extremely liberal rating. I would consider it more a 2. I could not wait to get out of there in the morning, I did not let anything I brought in the room touch the floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not great experience"
When I arrived the staff was friendly however the room had no towels, cups, ice bucket and the remote control for tv had no batteries. No soap and no bath mat. I had to call and ask for these items.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget friendly but not family friendly"
Hotel room smelled of must and obviously used to be a smoking room. Awful odor. Tub was stained and liner coming apart. Mattress lumpy and uncomfortable. Window was coming apart too!Genuine Expedia guest review
"worst 3 star airport hotel"
This is the worst 3 star airport hotel I ever stayed. We landed Denver around 6:15pm, took about 20min got off plane, this hotel name no where to be found on either West or East side of hotel directory list, then we started using cell to call hotel, reaches no live person, answer machine just tell you, press 1 for reservation, press 3 for customer care, […] if u press 3, get back from Welcome message again, again, again, final we press 1, then after a very very long waiting, finally talked to front desk. We got to hotel around 8:10pm. Driver is friendly. There's some phone system issue going on according to driver . Front desk lady felt very sorry for us. and issued us complimentary breakfast . Elevator, stair have old stale smell, carpet in room has many many stains, some wall paper is peeling off, coffee cup still have coffee stains. Swimming poop is closed due to some wiring problem Hot tub is open, but water is green\yellowish and smelly. Bed is OK. Next day - Sun when we got to breakfast, we were told, breakfast not open on Sun 03/17 because cook not show up.. This is definitely not 3 star hotel, 1 or 2 star is max. Not sure how Expedia would sell it as 3 star. !! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"First time visitor -- not a good experience"
As you know I use Expedia a lot -- and so I trust the reviews -- My invoice is for ambassador -- but it changed to Clarion The Map Directions to get to the hotel are poor. The hotel is poorly lit and they had canvas over outside sign the room was large -- a suite, but in the bedroom, no tv althoug a cabinet for them,the heater didn't work -- when I […] asked, they said both are the way they want the rooms -- the heater in living area worked fine. the lamp on the desk in BR and one of the lamps next to bed didn't work either. Bed was very comfortable -- but I would have been embarrassed if my wife was with me -- actually I would have changed rooms or hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very noisy hotel"
Convenient to the airport but the noise was terrible. I heard every move the person upstairs made - every time the water came on I had to turn up the tv. The hotel was clean but I would never stay there again as it was impossible to sleep. Very thin walls I guess.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Won't stay here again."
Rooms were poorly maintained, staff was nice but a bit dishonest in their dealings with us. Beds are wore out, locks are broken, and even though they say it is a non-smoking hotel, that's a joke, it smells like a cigar factory, and guests and staff are smoking everywhere. Breakfast is an overpriced joke as well. Carpet in hallways is very very dirty, […] such a shame because it could be such a nice hotel. Needs new management or ownership. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The shuttle took about an hour to pick us up from the airport, even though it's only 15 minutes away. I had to call 3 times and each time was told that the driver would be there in a few minutes. When I got to the hotel, and was asking about a shuttle back to the airport the following day, they scheduled me on a shuttle at 4:25 a.m. because the time […] I needed to go (5:30 a.m.) was "already full" even though when making the reservation for the hotel, I had specifically asked about this. When I mentioned this to the person at the front desk, I was told that they don't accept shuttle reservations in advance. The room was old looking, comfortable but just adequately so. Towels were tiny and threadbare. The bathroom light flickered whenever it was on. I would not recommend this hotel, even just as a pass-through from the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not three star quality."
We were surprised that it was rated 3 stars. We expect more from a three star hotel. Some of the wallpaper was torn and paint chipped. The non-slip mat in the tub was dirty and hadn't been moved or cleaned underneath for a long time. Black decomposing rubber underneath the mat. (My wife had wanted to take a bath and couldn't.) It just didn't have that […] squeaky clean feeling to it that we expect from a well-maintained three star hotel. There was a loud guest in an adjoining room that didn't quiet down until 1:30am. Making it difficult for my wife to sleep. Not well-staffed, it seems. We didn't have anyone at the front desk when we wanted to check out for the first morning shuttle to the airport.

"Either a great value or gross"
I stayed last night for an overnight business trip to Denver. I will admit that I did not read the reviews. I booked b/c it was the right price and it was in and out. All these 5 star ratings are insane. Pros: free wi-fi, close proximity to the airport, dining options within a short drive, bed was comfortable, the room had a fridge and microwave. Cons: […] Out dated - like early '80s nothing at all beside the bedding has been replaced in 30 years and while not obviously dirty you know that carpet is gross, also an extended stay location which meant the type of people who live in extended stay hotels are wandering around, really messed up on the GPS - very difficult to find, and the old hotel sign is still on the outside (royally confusing), dining options within walking distance are McDonalds / Denny's / truck stop. Next time I will spend another $20 - there are so many other options. If you're broke and/ or cheap then it's a great value. Otherwise, avoid! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't go for the cheap price"
Thrifty is one thing, foolish is another. Spend a bit more elsewhere! First room toilet would not flush. Changed rooms. Clock radio broken in second room. Mattress fully worn out. People smoking in hallways.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Checked in at 11pm and room was clean enough. In morning, though, i found the shower didn't work and didn't have time to change rooms since I was catching a flight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ice machines scarce (closest one empty) - soda machines out, booze unavailable. Impressive facade in pics and on approach, but old and tacky inside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tired, dirty hotel well past its prime."
The hotel was located behind a truck stop in a mixed commercial area. I arrived after dark and was very disappointed to see a poorly lit parking lot and entrance. The interior of the hotel was extremely dark, dated and dirty looking and smelled of stale smoke. The reception staff were friendly, the only positive experience. The room was very tired, […] multiple hairs on the sheets and overall smelled of stale smoke and mildew. The mattress sagged, the carpet needed a good clean and vaccum. The name on the building is "The Crystal Inn" so it is difficult to find it from the highway. The hotel is listed as non smoking, likely the reason so many patrons were milling outside the entrances. The only reason I stayed was it was late and I had an early morning meeting. I would NOT recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
the bathrom drain didn´t work, so we have to move room the morning after. they only apologized. so we could,t have a shower the first night.Genuine Expedia guest review
Makes you feel dirty. They say its no-smoking but it definitely smells like smoke and is just dingy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we stayed here 5 years ago I thought it was the best hotel I had ever stayed at. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the free breakfast buffet was the best I had ever had at a hotel. This time the halls were dirty and smelled, the room had the tinge of cigarette smoke even though smoking was prohibited, the free breatfast was now $7.00, […] and although the staff was friendly they were not of the same professional background and experience. Previously the hotel was known as the Crystal Inn and has now changed hands. It was OK, but not what I was expecting. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was hot. After a couple hours of running airconditioner, it still was too warm. No fan available. Clerk seemed to be in disbelief, and unhelpful. Refrigerator was not cold, with no visible dial to adjust. Water in shower was reversed. Cold and Hot were backwards. Clock had to be set with the correct time. Bed was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Worth The Money!"
First of all, the shuttle only runs on the hour during the morning. Other than that you have to contact the hotel. The hotel looks outdated and needs remodeling. The tub was slow to drain and the internet didn't work half the time I was there. Thank God I was only there for one night. The location is not that great as well. Definitely not worth the […] money. There are way better hotels for cheaper and at a better location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a dump"
The hotel was dank and dingy ... elevator was wore out decore was from 1985. The shuttle van needs to be replaced. The place is a dump! The shuttle driver was niceGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was great and airport shuttle was timely and helpful. Hotel was very dirty. I don't know how many years the carpet has been there but it obviously has not been cleaned (10 years??) Also the TV in the room did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
dingy, towels were very thin and had holesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Time-Capsule to the 1980's"
Although my wife and I had no complaints about the cleanliness of the room, our dead-bolt lock didn't work, our tv remote didn't work, the sinks were outside of the bathroom, the room numbers were falling off the doors, and there were holes in the bed linens. Other than that, it wasn't bad considering how close we were to the airport. No plane noise […] that I noticed, but plenty of noise from the interstate, but if you asked me if I would stay there again? Probably not. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel not what it seems!"
We were extremely disappointed due to the fact this hotel had high ratings when we booked it. It was clean but regular maintenance thurout was poor at best. It had a breakfast available but had a charge of $7.00 and it wasn't even close to moct contintental breakfasts that are free! The shuttle van was pretty beat up and somewhat dirty and we crossed […] our fingers that we would get to the airport! Upon our return we had to wait 45 minutes before it arrive and took us back to the hotel. I don't reccomend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Upon arrival during 100 plus degree heat, I discovered there were no ice machines in the building much to my surprise. I called the front desk to inquire about this and no one ever answered my calls. Discovered I had to get ice at the front desk which was not at all convenient. When I returned from my trip, I waited almost two hours for an airport shuttle […] at the agreed upon site and was never picked up by hotel staff. I had to pay another hotel shuttle to get a ride to retrieve my car before having to drive 5 hours home. Very disappointed overall. The rooms were not very clean either!

Pretty sure this hotel is rented by the hour. Considering the age of this hotel, I did not expect it to be ancient and run down on the inside as it was. Our room did not even have a number on the door. Saw several sets of police in the one night that we stayed, and the people in the lobby were not the kinda of people that I felt comfortable being around. […] I bed was comfortable and the room was clean, but I would never stay at this hotel again, regardless of price or convenience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
You’re supposed to get what you pay for but not in my case with this hotel. First off my room had cigarette burns in the carpet; the shuttle only runs once an hour. The flower pots outside had no flowers, just huge weeds. The room/hotel was seriously out dated with NO little extras. I have saved the elevator for last. What a death trap, with only the […] one elevator for all 3 floors the wait was long just to get in a DIRTY, SMELLY elevator. It wasn't dirty from a busy day; it was dirty from lack of proper cleaning over a long period. Needless to say I was very disappointed especially for what I paid. Now, I stay in 3 star hotels about 45-60 days a year for over 10 years and this is the first review I have ever written. But this one needed to be. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close enough to air-port for the right price"
The room was clean, but I had to call three times regarding being picked up by the shuttle. First time I was told it woudl be there in fifteen minutes. In fifteen minutes, no shuttle. I called again, this time I was told that it would be 20 minutes...I clarified that I had been waiting in the right place. in 20 minutes - still no shuttle. I called and […] was told that it would be there in 5 minutes. It did finally showed up 15 minutes later ---One of the other families we boarded with said when she called, the dispatch actually yelled at her that she said it was going to be at least a few more minutes.... What they fail to recognize is they set the expectations. When it is 11 o'clock at night and you are traveling with two young children, waiting 15 minutes and over an hour (when you have to be up at 4:00AM) is the difference between a satisfied customer and an unsatified one...Also the single elevator sounded like it needed maintence, it actually scared to get in it.

This is an old hotel that has been bought out, but not updated. The only elevator is hidden away and is used by house service as well as guests. No breakfast,served, not even coffee.Genuine Expedia guest review
