“Good stop for weary travelers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stayed at this Best Western in Clifton a few days ago as my husband, being familiar with the area, said it would cut time off our trip coming north out of Ouray and connecting to I-70 East. It is not as "upscale" as we usually stay at, so I was VERY pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Our room was upstairs, facing the courtyard. I have not stayed in a hotel with outdoor entry (instead of a hallway) in ages, but the courtyard was so inviting and pretty to look at from our room. Nice grassy area in the courtyard, covered patio tables and chairs, well groomed.

Our room was very nicely furnished and quite large. The air conditioner was a bit noisy but actually provided some "white noise." I got a great night's sleep.

Breakfast was sufficient...those little pre-formed "pancake looking" eggs (that actually tasted ok), biscuits, gravy, sausage, and the usual waffles, cereals, bagels, little muffins, fruit, yogurt, juices, coffee, etc. I did not use the pool area, but the indoor pool looked quite large compared to some competing chains we stay at.

Lots of food choices nearby, gas stations, etc. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: We enjoyed a nice, quiet inner courtyard room upstairs (they have an elevator). Being exhausted, we...

First of all we want to thank you for taking time to fill out a comment on our hotel. We appreciate your thoughts on the courtyard. Sometimes it's a very pleasant surprise to open your hotel door to sunshine and fresh air instead of the hallway. Many of our guests have the breakfast in the courtyard or enjoy a glass of local wine in the evening. We also appreciate the comments on our large pool, we also have pool toys for the kids.
Again thank you for taking time to tell other travelers about our hotel. We hope you will visit us again.
Sincerely,
Karen Nielson

Weather conditions caused a mud/rock slide preventing us from arriving on our original date. The hotel and booking company were understanding and worked with us to cancel our reservation. We were able to make it the next day and stayed for the same rate. The hotel has been recently remodelled. Rooms were very nice with new furniture and fixtures. Bathrooms were sparkling. The room was very clean

Thank you for your comments, they are very much appreciated. Hopefully next time you stay with us, it will be a clear and sunny day, with no mud slides. Our staff always tries to give the best guest service they can, so when there was a problem they took care of it. The housekeeping staff appreciates the comment about the clean and sparkling rooms. Everyone at the hotel works together as a team, so thank you from all of the staff. The hotel is always going under some kind of improvement, this year it was a new elevator. Again thank you for staying with us, hope to see you again.

Sincerely,

Karen Nielson

Nice rooms, clean and comfortable hotel in a central location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Always greeted with a smile. Free internet access is a real plus. Hotel was quiet, except for an occasional train in the morning. Breakfast was good. Hot foods were had and everything was kept full. Definitely will stay there again when we are in the area. They have a nice courtyard where you can sit and relax or eat breakfast.

This new remodeled hotel is one of the best (Best Western's) we have stayed at. We enjoyed the pool and Hot tub very much and the water was actually hot, which was as it should be. The court yard and terrace tables and chairs were a very nice thought for people to meet fellow travelers and have a nice place to visit and play games. The coffee was good and hot and the ice water was very nice to have in the lobby.

Thank you very much for the nice comments about our hotel. I am so glad you enjoyed the pool and hot tub. After a long day they are very relaxing. One of my favorite place also is the courtyard. It is a very relaxed place as you said to meet other travelers and have your breakfast. The coffee is measured for every pot, so our guests can enjoy a good cup of coffee. The cucumber water is a treat too after a long day. Again thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you again.

Clifton CO is not the most exciting location in CO but this property close to wineries, fruit orchards, Colorado National Monument and very convenient to I70. We were running late in returning to Denver so this location was a time saver over staying in Grand Junction.

We checked into a Super 8 in Fruita in 2012 (our annual run up from Denver for the Peach Festival.) I did not like the hotel, checked right back out and called The Comfort Inn across the street. We stayed there for one night. It was comfortable and affordable. We needed to save some money on this trip. I really wanted to find the Best Western Gande River Inn and stay there instead that year as well as the last year 2011. We stayed at the wrong Best Western in 2011 but it was nice and we enjoyed our stay. So, finely, this year I made sure we were at the right Best Western as it has an indoor pool and jacuzzi. We stayed there and enjoyed it tremendously. We did not use the pool or jazuzzi after all. Used the Fitness Center which had all the equipment we needed. I think every other year I might get another night or two here again. We have a "pop up" so we will probably use it next year when we come up. Then its my turn! Take Care, and Thank You for the wonderful stay at Best Western Grande River Inn & Suites at 3228 I-70 Business Loop Clifton, CO 81520 We will be back.

Thank you for taking the time to find our hotel this year. Wish you could have used the pool and hot tub. After a long day, they can be very relaxing. But am very glad you got to use the exercise room. This winter we will be adding a piece of new equipment, hope you will come back and use it. We are looking forward for to having you stay with us again. Take care too, and enjoy the rest of the summer.

The room was overpriced, but I'm sure it was a gouge due to the Festival being the weekend we stayed at the hotel. The pool wasn't heated and the breakfast was "cheap". Bring your own food or go out. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was very nice. The pool & hot tub were clean and functioning and towels were provided at the pool. If you want to make your own coffee, bring your own filters.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your input on our hotel. This is what helps us improve our service.
You did come the weekend of the Peach Festival, which is one of our biggest events of the year. I am sorry but the rates are higher at all hotels. I hope you did get to try some of the peaches, they are so good. People came long distances to the festival and take boxes of peaches home for friends.
I am sorry you found the pool at a cooler temperature than you felt comfortable with. We keep the pool heated between 83 to 86 degrees, which is suggested by our health department. With your comment, we will watch and make sure to have it at a full 86 degrees, we want you and other guests to enjoy and feel comfortable.
We are changing the breakfast using comments from our guests, and hope to keep improving it. Again, our goal is to have all our guests have a great stay with us.
Thank you for taking the time to comment, it is appreciated very much.
Sincerely, Karen
