“Very satisafctory.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is pretty much your typical Best Western inn. Things I liked were:

1.Location. It is half a block South of the Trans-Canada highway, behind the slightly more upscale Prestige Inn. I heard no traffic noise from the semis on the Trans-Canada.

2.Room size: Above average, I'd say about 30% bigger than your normal Best Western room.

One nitpick: The hotel provides the bane of the 2 and 3-star accommodations -- the shrink-wrapped disposable cup. Not even the see-through plastic kind, but the waxed cardboard kind. How can you enjoy a cup of coffee, much less a glass of wine from one of those cups?

I thought the price pretty steep -- after a supposed AAA discount I still paid $314 for a single room for two nights, with no breakfast. But I guess if they can charge that much, I don't blame them.

Room Tip: The even-numbered rooms face the parking lot and the Prestige Inn, from the odd-numbered ones you ca...

Feedback from our guests is always appreciated and we are glad you had an enjoyable stay. I apologize that you did not care for the shrink wrap disposable cups. As we do not have a professional grade sanitizing dishwasher on site, we choose to take Best Western International’s suggestion in using the shrink wrapped cups. These ensure our guests of sanitary cupware. We hope you will appreciate our dedication to our guest’s safety and comfort.

We stayed at the Best Western Mountainview Inn on Aug 11. It was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The continental breakfast was the usual. Every time a dish was getting low they refilled it so there was lots to eat if you were really hungry. The room was huge, the bathroom vanity was about 8 ft so you had lots of room to spread out your stuff. The pool was extra large and very well maintained.....didn't have that chlorine smell which means it is balanced properly, The pool was cool but very refreshing. We would highly recommend this hotel for a stopover. We didn't do anything else in Golden so we can't comment on the services in the area.

It was a great idea to stop here. It wasn't a planned stop but the staff was fantastic. They assisted in getting us settled and we had a great breakfast to get us going the next morning. Definatly a great choice for a stop.

Spacious room with a large sofa and large screen TV, very comfortable bed. Quiet indoor pool, great for an adult swim. The hotel, as many hotels in Golden is sandwiched between the highway and the railway and as a light sleeper I did not hear the large semis rolling by nor the train - a plus in Golden.

We stayed at the Best Western Mountainview Inn in the last week of December 2011 while on a skiing vacation in Golden. We called for the reservation and got a very good CAA rate of $116 for room with 2 queen beds. The lady that made the reservation for us was very courteous and helpful, and even called us back after a couple of days with additional ski package information that we had requested.

The room was clean and spacious for our family that included two teens. The staff were very helpful. Housekeeping was efficient - all supplies were always provided.

Perhaps the only downside was that there was no complimentary breakfast that I have always had at other Best Westerns.

Overall, a good place to stay and we would stay there again.

House keeping was very poor and the overall value of the room was very expensive compared to other best westerns we have stayed at.

Room Tip: Make sure yiou get a non smoking room
