Breakfast service was terrific. Love the omelettes and the heated outdoor pool. The bartender on Wed night was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the local brews; played great music and very friendly. The girl at the check-in on Wed night was very helpful. She offered a lot of local guidance and directed us to a good restaurant. She even loaned us... More

My partner and I took a vacation and decided Denver would be a good place to visit. The room was definitely worth the money. Booked on Expedia and got the room for 75 a night. The breakfast was amazing. Fresh cooked eggs to order, and the waffles were good as well. The pool by far was the best. Heated year... More

This Best Western was renovated to have a dinosaur theme, in honor of its location near "Dinosaur Ridge"-- a location where Colorado's fossil (the first in the world!) Stegosaurus was discovered. The hotel looks like a regular Best Western, but there's a Stegosaurus statue and sandbox to dig up fossils! We didn’t go in, but it looked like kids might... More

Very adequate mid-level suburban hotel. Easy access to the Denver area UNLESS you need to go a distance at rush hour, which will be true at any hotel. Otherwise, the title says it all. And, since TripAdvisor apparently requires that reviews be at least 200 words - like a school term paper - let me see. The décor in the... More

My favorite Best Western so far. Hotel is decorated with dinosaur fossils, which is a fun background. Rooms are modern and big. Breakfast is great - Eggs made to order and yogurt among with all the usuals. Restaurant on-site that we didn't get to try. Bathroom was small, but this wasn't a problem for us.

This hotel does not have an elevator so I had to carry my 50 lb suitcase up/down a flight of stairs. They have no vending machines only ice on the first floor. There was a lot of hallway noise and questionable guests. The pool wasn't clear and the staff wasn't helpful. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean.... More

Family in Lakewood, so the location was great. The people at the front desk were great. The breakfast crew gets two thumbs up, especially Lu and the lady cooking eggs. It was a better than average breakfast experience. Beds were comfortable. Pillows were terrible. Bathroom was teeny tiny. Had cold water in the bathroom one morning, the next day had... More

Great stay, clean and nice. Great breakfast included. Will definitely stay again when in the Denver area. Like the interior design with all the dinosaurs. Really enjoyed the breakfast as had multiple selections.

Quiet hotel even though it is very near large thoroughfares. Fabulous dinosaur decor and real fossils. Great pool. Very warm, even though it is outdoors. Would definitely stay here again. Fabulous staff.
