The room was smaller than most Best Westerns that I have stayed at. We chose this hotel because it is pet friendly. The room was clean, the pool area was very well maintained, and there was a small bar for "happy hour". If I was not traveling with my dog, I would not have chosen this hotel.

Aesthetically, this is a lovely hotel - the proprietors obviously have a keen appreciation for the natural history of the region as evidenced by the pretty murals, fossils and Dino-centric statues throughout. Our room was clean and well-appointed. Pool area is spacious and nicely outfitted with a beach-level entry. I attempted to explore the other side of the courtyard via... More

Clean, comfortable hotel with really nice outdoor pool area. Great location for activities in both Denver and outside of Denver. Tons of shopping and good restaurants in the area. Short drive to Red Rocks Ampitheatre and white water rafting. Mountains can be seen from hotel. Only complaint would be the continental breakfast not being replenished quickly enough so some morning... More

Loved this hotel 25 years ago as Comfort Inn. Was glad to be back. Beautiful rooms. During the 5 day stay the hot tub didn't work, one day our room wasn't serviced, the key phob entry to outside doors didn't work so you had to come around and the breakfast was good, but you had to be there early. Said... More

Found this Best Western very easy to find, clean and staff was very friendly. We appreciated the Bird of Prey show they offered free to guests. The rooms were comfortable although we found the shower/toilet area very small. Our only surprise was at the breakfast, which they offered free, had run out of many items one hour into serving, by...

We were greeted by a stegosaurus statue outside the the front door but this Best Western was modern and welcoming inside even with the many other fossils on display - a dinosaur lovers delight. The breakfast room had an omelette station and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were large and comfortable. We visited Morrison, the Red Rocks amphitheatre... More

The Lamps being unplugged, is the housekeepers forgot to plug them back in after they were done vacuuming. I am personally making sure that items in the breakfast room are being stocked.

I especially liked being greeted at the door by a statue of a Stegosaurus and the many fossils on display in the front lobby: Skulls of an Allosaurus and Triceratops as well as other fossils. Breakfast was excellent with an omelet bar featuring custom made omelets. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend it.

I apologize, the pool, and hot tub unfortunately had algae, and we had to shut them down to clean. We have a place that's called Club USA that we send our guest to if we are having issues with the pool/hot tub and that's only one mile away. This part of town isn't shady at all so I am wondering...
