We arrived at the hotel right in the middle of a hail storm, it started when we were about 3 miles away from the hotel, we were arriving from Grand Junction, what an experience, but it was so nice to get to the hotel and into the reception area and front desk. This is our second stay at this particular... More

Overall fine for a one night stay. Room smelled of Mr. Clean, but that's better than it being dirty. In retrospect, I should have paid the $15-20 more for a hotel with inside rooms and a fitness center.

We stayed here for four nights. The rooms were clean, the layout was excellent, and the continental breakfast very good. There is not much room to sit for breakfast so get there early. There was flavored water and cookies in the afternoon for a snack and it was nice to take these and sit on the little patio by the... More

This was by far the best Best Western we have ever stayed at. Even had a night light on the handle of the blow dryer. Very clean and attractive. Also the cheapest motel we stayed in the whole trip. Very good valu for our money.

The pool is outstanding, and I loved the flavored water and cookies in the late afternoon--yum, yum. Breakfast room was nice. The staff was very responsive. Water pressure in bathroom was excellent, and we always had hot water. The internet service needs improvement.

Property was nicely maintained with clean rooms, good beds and I enjoyed the open courtyard parking with dome covered pool and hot tub in the center. Staff did a great job of keeping up with a very full house during the labor day biker's convention in town. Seems to be a very family oriented place. Only complaint was the WiFi... More

We saw the good reviews here and, based upon a previous experience at a cheaper place, decided to spend some more in BW Mountain Shadows. For what we wanted and needed for this stay, which was basically a long recreational weekend, it was perfect, and the service from everybody, especially Andy, was simply outstanding. I have to say, the level... More
