We had a pleasant stay and had some special service from hotel staff allowing us to decorate rooms before the birthday girls arrived. After some initial confusion about pet policy (we called weeks ago and pets were ok; night staff approached to check in the well behaved dog said pets were not allowed; the owners were called and lived up...

Not only a beautiful view of the mountains but a great stay. We stayed for three nights and were pleased with the room and amenities. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. Several choices for the continental breakfast. Good location in town. Large bathroom was a plus with four people. Will return to this hotel and recommend it to friends.

Our family of six stayed here for six days. The hotel was nice and quiet, clean and comfortable. The pool was a good size and the boys often had it all to themselves. The breakfast was very good and provided the usual breakfast staples; cereal, waffle maker, sausage meat, omelets, and a variety of breads to toast. The boys especially... More

Needed a place the night before a white water rafting expedition. Came across this hotel online and looked nice. Although this is certainly not a resort, the hotel has everything you would want in a moderately priced, conveniently located hotel. Rooms are updated, everything seemed to be clean and the gentleman at the front desk (when I arrived at midnight)... More

I arrived at the hotel and was a little concerned that my room was not ready at check in time. The front desk person was very apologetic and quickly found me another room that I was able to check into. The room and bathroom were spotless!!! I have stayed in four star hotels that weren't this clean!!! The view from... More

We were passing by and had to find something for the night - since we don't know the area, Best Western seemed like a safe choice. There was only one room left - and a pricey one (fortunately, we got a small discount). The room was quite large, clean, with a large bathroom, but the windows did not open. There... More

Nice hotel setting with a wonderful from the front rooms. Great looking front desk area. Great little coffee shop with seating and a view as well as a great gift shop. There was no elevator so carting everything up the stairs was a bit taxing. The room was nice, but the rug in the bathroom was dirty and there was... More

Yet again, our stay at the Vista Inn in Buena Vista, Colorado was great. Their courteous, knowledgeable, and outgoing staff met our needs at every turn. I am the event organizer of the Buena Vista Bike Fest which takes place the first Saturday of June. Because of our event, the Vista Inn sells out for those nights. I consistently get... More

Everything looked great when we arrived, the lobby is welcoming, the desk clerk was nice enough, gave us second floor room, directed us to the next door down, we pulled out a luggage cart loaded our tons of luggage on the cart, went through the door we were directed to and there was a tall staircase in front of us,...
