Accommodations Review:

The room had two queen beds and room for a rollaway bed. It was an average sized room. The bathroom sink is outside the bath area (single sink). The hotel hallways are outside, and the room window faces the hallway, which meant we krpt the curtains drawn most of the time. The room could have used better lighting. The TV was smallish but newer. There is an outdoor glass walled elevator, a nice touch! The room was fairly clean but didn't look brand new.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

Part of package. $400 per adult, $200 per child (includes airfare from Denver, 5 nights, and a 5 day flex pass)

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

2

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

The lounge is a tiny little bar with a couple of TV's. Not bad, considering this is a more of a motel than hotel. The lounge area is very small and noisy, not too intimate. The restaurant is the Poppy Cafe. The menu resembles an upscale Denny's (think Marie Callendars). The portions are generous, and the food was pretty good. Kids eat free. We ate all of our breakfasts and lunches here. The one dinner we had at the Blue Bayou was almost as expensive as all of the breakfasts and lunches. The service is very prompt! Which is good if you are trying to catch the shuttle. The staff was very courteous and attentive. Their earned their tips!

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Hair Dryer, Laundry, Concierge Room Service, Non-Smoking Rooms Available    

Pool Description/Comments:

Nicely landscaped. This hotel is right next to the freeway, and the pool area is very noisy because of this. The pool is always open (it can't get noisier than the freeway!). Because of the noise, its not a great place to relax at the end of the day with a glass of wine or a beer.

Other Comments:

Even though this hotel is close to the freeway its rooms are quiet. We got the room as part of a package with United Air Vacations. Its more than a motel (room service, lounge, etc.), so if these features are important for you then this is a good place. Its a little far for a walk to DL (but not out of the question). If all you want is a motel then I might suggest one of the "across the street" motels instead.
