Nice to have a hot breakfast and OJ waiting for you every morning and beds and room made up at night. Had a problem with disrespectful kids slamming doors and talking and smoking (Colorado) outside our window till 2AM. Mngmt staff could have been more responsive, but hard to control, still ruined our last night there. Otherwise - great stay.

There were 3 people standing out front of the hotel smoking and talking as... More

This motel should be investigated by anyone with kids who enjoy dinosaurs (or by adults who did when they were growing up). The impressive lobby and environs have accurate reproductions of fossils, and I met an enthusiastic docent (who is a scheduled worker at the motel) who told me more than I ever knew about them. It may be worth... More

your fitness center had a broken treadmill and an archaic bike. the picture of the fitness center on-line was one of the reasons that I picked the hotel. a misrepresentation of what it actually was . the breakfast was exactly the same each day

This hotel was fine for our needs. The room was clean and so was the hotel itself. Check in was longer than I expected, but the staff seemed new. There was NO elevator and our rooms were on the second floor, and there was no bathtub to relax in. That was a bummer. I will choose differently next time. The... More

We are more than happy to accommodate a requested room move for shower/bathtub preference purposes. Although, we do not have an elevator, we do attempt to keep our guests as comfortable as possible! We always offer to help... More

Nice renovated rooms! Clean hotel. The only concern it's the thickness of the wals, you can hear everything next door, and the gap of the door is kind of huge! Other than that is great small hotelon a good price.

Hi Kenar K, Thank you for posting a positive review for our hotel.. always appreciated! We worked hard on our recent $5 million dollar renovation and it's nice to know it hasn't gone unnoticed. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about the thickness of our walls, however some of our rooms are quieter than others. For your next visit,... More

One of my favorite moderately priced hotels I've stayed at and loved the fossils-but I'm an amateur paleo geek. Really good breakfast options in this type of a motel. Wish I'd had time to enjoy the pool but it was 20 degrees outside. There were people out there who seemed to be enjoying it.

Hello Pattyk3212014, We are ecstatic to hear that you love our unique Dino Hotel! We think having a cook to make the hot items such as biscuits, gravy, sausage and eggs are an important way to start the day.. Our zero entry outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi our amazing! We keep it opened year round, weather permitting. Sometimes when it... More

The hotel has been recently remodeled and the upgrades are very nice. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms spacious and quiet. The breakfast is included and items are varied and tasty. Lakewood is located at the edge of the foothills, just a few miles west of Denver.

We were looking for an alternative to a downtown Denver hotel on our way towards Aspen the next day. This hotel was perfect for us. It was convenient, clean, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The outside is a little dated, but the inside was just fine for us. The lobby is unique and interesting. We would stay...

I love the theme of the hotel. It gives those traveling with Children the chance to show them some history of the area. The food was also great. And the staff showed consideration for any physical ailments we might have.
