We only spent one night here and it was fine - nothing special. Clean and quiet, with a working mini frig and freezer. The staff was not well informed about their free WIFI - they kept telling me it was on a secure server; but not according to the absence of the little lock icon. The motel decor was interesting,...

Matt was extremely helpful when we checked in. It was late, we were tired and there was a discrepancy with the rate. He said he would figure it out & not to worry. We asked for a room on the first floor, which we got, but to our surprise it was a handicapped accessible room, so the shower was just... More

We weren't able to use the outdoor hot tub and pool due to it not opening until 10am. That wasn't cool. Also the breakfast was sparse and unappealing. Everything else about this hotel was great. Very comfy bed and clean rooms.

Hi Brianme519IB Thank you for taking the time to do a review of our property. Our pool opens at 10am because our Maintenance staff checks all the chemicals, documents it, and vacuums the pool/hot tub. Pool Maintenance takes a lot of time and we want to make sure that the pool/ hot tub is in safe working order. I am... More

Perfect distance for our reservations at Red Rock. After a frustrating start, (we arrived at 2 and we're told they weren't able to get us a room until 3, finally we got into our room at 3:30), the hotel eventually did meet our standard. Room was clean and comfortable. The pool was wonderful a real highlight and great for little... More

I was a little worried about the location of this hotel when we drove up as it seemed like it was in not a great area. I was also worried that it was a long way away from Red Rocks Amphitheater. However, we drove to the amphitheater before checking in to make sure. It is not far and it is... More

Hi Jane T, Thank you for taking the time to do a review of our property. We are a Best Western that is tucked away on a frontage road.

Nice hotel with a dinasaur theme. Clean room (though I found a large spider web with a large spider behind the bathroom door), comfortable bed with nice sheets, pillows were small and lumpy but ok. Small bathroom with shower (no tub) and the sink outside in the sleeping area. Fridge, microwave and coffee maker in room. A/C was fairly quiet... More

A friendly, accommodating place. Good variety on the breakfast bar and although I didn't use it the available bar with light meals items offered was very nice. I like the fact that the motel is pet friendly and it has a wonderful pool and spa area.
