“Best Deal in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

It may not look or be the fanciest place in town but it's incredibly clean, quiet and spacious. It's right off the highway and close to everything you need, but not so close you can hear the traffic. Other guests were polite, friendly and quiet. The large kitchen area and bbq outside make it easy to save on eating out for the budget conscience traveler. The pinewood was at least $40 cheaper than any of the hotel chains we looked into and I think we got more for our money at the Pinewood. This will be my go to place in Golden should I ever travel back that way.

The motel was very clean, quiet and the owner was very helpful. He suggested a visit on the way home to the Takakkaw Falls and it was worth the extra hour. We stayed one night and it was a great spot to sleep in Golden. Our kids loved the bunk beds. More bunk beds are need for families. Thanks so much!!!

Dale is a gracious host. He puts in the hours to make sure you are at your most comfortable and relaxed self. The kitchenette was immaculate and an added bonus was the barbecue out front ready to sizzle some streaks we bought from a local market (saved much from not having to eat out every meal). Dale encouraged us to different lo-cals and he sure knows his stuff. Strongly recommend this fine establishment!

Room Tip: The two Bedroom is nice!

As you approach this motel, you will be tempted to turn around and book another - from the outside and the location, it is pretty grim. However, the rooms are clean and huge, featuring a full size kitchen and sitting area. The beds are comfortable and the host is very friendly. The best news... its ultra affordable. Clean, cheap and quiet.

Great value for money. Kids love the bunkbeds. It's a new renovated room so it's very clean. The top rating in Tripadvisor and the in-suite kitchen are the reasons we chose this place. The owner is very nice and helpful.

We had to stay in Golden a couple of nights, we decided to stay 5 because this place is a perfect logistics base to visit the rockies without spending a fortune! The owner, Dale, is very kind and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the place is quiet (sometimes there's the train passing but it's not very noisy). In the neighbours there are fast food restaurants and you can use the barbeque. Very nice place. Really recommended.

Pinewood Inn is wonderful. The outside may raise your eyebrows if you haven't read the rave reviews, because it's just a row of concrete block units. But here's what you will find. The owners, Dale and Debi, are wonderful and very kind. We stayed in Unit 4. It was super clean. There was a nice bedroom with a double bed, a sitting room with a table, couch, and a single bed, a full kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, stove, sink, and cabinets, and a nice bathroom (that has been remodeled recently with pine) with a fan. There was china, flatware, glassware, pots and pans, a dish drainer, dish towels and cloths, ice trays....Every time I looked for something, from a Kleenex to a tea kettle to a floor fan, I found it. The bedroom had two closets and also shelves to put things away. Dale and Debi have thought of everything. I felt so much at home. We were tired of eating out continually, and it was great to buy groceries and fix meals in the kitchen. This was a perfect little "cabin" (even though it is not stand-alone) to use as a base for exploring the National Parks. My husband and I usually stay at Holiday Inns, so we are used to nice hotels, but I would prefer to stay at Pinewood Inn when I go to the Canadian Rockies. We stayed at Pinewood Inn 3 nights and then we went on to a guest cabin we rented for 4 nights in Field. The guest cabin was beautiful and nearly three times as expensive, but frankly we preferred Pinewood Inn because it was so comfortable and functional. We'll be back! Thank you Dale and Debi!

Room Tip: Unit 4 has a great kitchen.
