Overview

About the property

Real comfortable place, your home away from home

Relaxing, marijuana friendly, home that's all yours! Killer breakfast served every morning included in your price. Plus a micro-brew sampler will be waiting for you upon arrival. There are seven micro-brews within six blocks of Johnny Lo's medx. I know a lot of the micro-brewers in town. We have two bedrooms that are so comfortable. Each bedroom has a queen and full size bed in them. All beds, linens, comforters, and towels are brand new. There is a large, shared walk in shower. We have two places to unwind. An amazing surround sound theatre / bar area where you can relax with your 'buds' and an outdoor style 'palapa' style porch with a cool bar, stereo, refrigerator to keep the coldness, cold. We even have sun shades to keep the Colorado sun off your back and to keep things discreet if you so desire. There are two regulation size horseshoe pits to have a little fun with. You'll fall asleep at least once on our hammock while listening to the sounds of our aquatic garden. If you take the train from the plane into Union Station, downtown Denver, we'll be glad to pick you up in one of our muscle cars from the late 60"s. We are sandwiched between Broadway and Santa Fe Avenues. This is the area you want to be at when visiting Denver, trust me.This is the HOT AREA! Not downtown, Larimer area. That was. Its no longer. It's too expensive down there and everything is played out. Here at Johnny Lo's Medx there so many fun things happening and cool places to visit within one mile, that you won't have to venture more than that to quench anything you're looking for. The "medx" parts of johnny lo's stands for your "marijuana education destination excape!" For our guests that want to learn a little more about the 'marijuana scene' going on we offer a free 45 minute private consultauion with the best dispensary in town. They will educate you on the best strains that are available to edibles, water hash, tinctures, hard goods and even creams. They will answer any and all your questions. I'm pretty sure you'll walk out with a smile on your face. We're just real comfortable here. I will be here during your stay. I'll be out of the way, except when I am cooking, so if you need anything, just give a shout of call. Check out Yelp for reviews of our place. Thanks!!

About John Lodico

I'm a commercial landscaper. I love to cook. I like micro-brews. I'm originally from New York but I call Colorado home now. You can't beat the weather and the people out here. I know a lot of the folks around town that will help make your stay the most comfortable vacation you ever have. Any questions, please ask! I hate going to a new place and missing out on something right next door because I did not know about it.

John Lodico purchased this house in 2002

"Home" for the holiday

  • 5 of 5

“Home” for the holiday’s

We knew we weren’t going to be with our family this Thanksgiving so we wanted to go somewhere special. We decided a quick trip to Denver Colorado was what the doctor ordered. We decided on Johnny Lo’s medx, and boy are we glad we did.

I think the best way to describe Johnny Lo’s medx is like having a real comfortable place to unwind and party, in the hottest part of Denver, with a great front yard equipped with hammock and beautiful aquatic garden (we fed the fish each morning), and an outdoor lounge area where we relaxed and enjoyed Colorado’s favorite product every night before turning in. The weather was so warm during our stay, Denver set a record. Oh, and one more thing, Johnny himself. Apparently he’s been doing this for a while now, and it shows. He was our own personal concierge!

Inside, the bedrooms were real comfortable, thick carpet for your feet upstairs, plenty of hot water for showers. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and more. Our favorite part was the hidden “speak easy” he has downstairs equipped with bar, surround-sound theatre, large leather recliner, darts and poker table. (Don’t tell the rest of your party). Let you and Johnny surprise them when your group does the tour of his place.

Back to Johnny. Here’s just a list of things he did for us during our short stay:

Picked us up at the train station in his 1968 Ford LTD 2-door coupe. So cool!

On the way home, he did a quick tour of the neighborhood so we would feel comfy

Had an ice cold micro-brew sampler waiting for us upon arrival on the front porch

Made an amazing breakfast for us every morning (sausage biscuits and gravy, yeah!)

Took us on a private dispensary tour that was so much fun, and we learned alot :-)

Introduced us to a couple of micro-brewers (Beare and Crazy Mountain dudes)

Shared laughter and stories with us on the front porch

Pointed us in the right direction for a great restaurant (Karma)

What an amazing experience we had. It brought back memories of what a relaxing time can be in this bustling-busy world of ours. We made a new friend in Johnny, and we will be coming back again and again. Keep up the good work!

Owner's Response: Jennilee and her partner had such a good time here it made me really happy. Having folks here during the holiday was real nice. It was a little different. Usually I shut shop and visit family. I think we "created" another member of my "extended" family since opening up the bed and breakfast three years and two months ago. I love the folks that stay here, that have an agenda, but also keep time free for themselves to enjoy the things that they don't expect to happen on vacation. Here at Johnny Lo's you can expect great surprises. I can't wait to see Jennilee and her partner again next year. They're coming back. Yay! Thank you homeaway.

Not what we expected

  • 1 of 5

We found the property description misleading. We thought we were getting a two-bedroom unit on the same property as the owner. It's actually the owner's 3-bedroom home, and he's renting out 2 bedrooms. The common areas, bathrooms and kitchen included, are shared. And the yard pictured is the front yard, which borders the street. The "water feature" had a broken pump and 6" of algae growing in it.

Overall, the place was not very clean, and resembled a fraternity house, with extra beds crammed into small bedrooms. The air conditioner in the main bedroom was old and so noisy that we couldn't hear each other speak.

We left two hours after arriving, without staying the four nights we'd paid for, and have not received any refund. John is charging way too much money for what you get.

Owner's Response: This is the first negative review I received since I opened my place three years and and two months ago. We have had nothing but 5 and 4 star reviews. Unfortunately what they wrote are lies. First off, I spoke with the gentleman many times (more than I normally do with my other guests) before they arrived. It was during the time Hurricane Irma hit Florida a few months ago. I rescheduled their dates because they could not arrive on the day they said they were would. They were worried about their house {rightfully so). I told them not too worry and you can stay the days you will missing at the beginning, on the tail end of the trip if you want because my place was not booked then. I take great pride in my home and my yard and it's always looking great when my guests show up (as the reviews state). I picked them up at the train station in one of my classic cars (it's one of the extra things we do here for our guests). They loved getting picked up in a 1968 Chevelle! I did the tour of the house, they loved that. We sat outside and enjoyed a beer from the selection of micro-brews I had I had on ice upon their arrival. They loved that. We enjoyed a little bit of Colorado's finest product. They loved that. I told them I was heading out to do some shopping and visit my girl. They said great and thanks! When I showed up the next morning to cook and amazing breakfast (it's what we do here, please check reviews), they were gone. Not sure what happened in the short time I left them, it's not my job to figure it out. All I know is what I offer my guests is an amazing product and the reviews back that. These folks didn't give my place a chance. Even after working with them due to the hurricane, helping them with their schedule, they weren't happy. My mom always said you can't please everybody all the time. This is what I do for a living, this is what I take pride in. For them to bash me like that without just cause, is wrong. Please embrace the other reviews when deciding on my place or not. Thanks.

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our recent stay at Johnnys. He is a great host, travel guide and cook - what more do you need? His place was perfect for us to hang outside (those misters can really cut the heat down!). Johnny does everything in his power to make sure his guests have a great time in Denver.

Great experience and close to lots of different things

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed our stay with Johnny Lo. He made us feel very welcome and had answers to all of our local area questions. Breakfast as many others have stated was simply amazing and a great start to each day. The outdoor area was ample and even on a hot summer day the misters made it feel like spring time. Sleeping arrangements were cozy, yet comfortable. The location was great with plenty of restaurants, bars and things to do within a few block radius. Johnny made sure we were taken care of and played a great host. I would not hesitate to recommending the place to anybody I knew and we hope to be back sooner rather then later!

Comfortable Thoughtful Denver Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Staying with Johnny was such a treat! Even Our welcome and introduction to the property was a memorable experience. Johnny has a real knack for taking care of people, his passion came through in every detail of our stay. Adult relaxation abounds in the outdoor living area complete with hammock or the indoor speak easy style bar area including large tv. Breakfast was wholesome filling and available on our schedule. Bedrooms were comfortable and clean, linens on point. We recommend Johnnys to anyone looking for a genuine mile high experience and hope to stay with him again!

Owner's Response: I'm really glad Nick and his crew had a great time at my place. they were in town for a tree climbing and safety competition. my dad's name was Nick and he was a tree cutter. So I was really glad they stayed here. I got to do a little "full circle" with them for my dad. I loved watching the competition, and I'm glad you guys got to have a great relaxing time here. I know how hard we all work and it just makes me feel good when people choose to relax at my place. Hope to see you again real soon!! Holla!
