“Brighton Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Was a good stay and asked the front desk personnel to help us with our account and sign out - they said it was done but later found out information in our account had NOT been entered as requested and confirmed. Not a big issue - expensive for the location but the quality is nice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had a 7 day conference in Ft Collins recently at the college, and the Best Western was a great value for us. We have stayed at this location for two previous conferences, and noticed significant improvements since our last visit (which was still a good experience). Breakfast offerings included protein and hot options, rooms have been upgraded and exterior walkways resurfaced. Our only complaint was that in-room wifi was spotty. Had to constantly reconnect. Otherwise, an excellent value!

We have stayed several places in Fort Collins and this was my favorite! It's location is fantastic, it's right across the street from Colorado State University and a nice walk to Old Town. It's a pretty small hotel so you have to book ahead in the summer because it is very popular. There are free bikes to use from the hotel. There a nice little indoor pool and a good breakfast. I would stay here again.

Location, location, location was key for selecting this motel. Right across College Ave from the CSU campus (and the Rams' track and field facility if you want to get in a jog or walk in the park-like campus setting). Old Town shopping and restaurants are a 10-minute walk on College Ave or on less busy Remington St one block east. This isn't your typical BW, with smallish, older rooms but nicely remodeled and clean. A bit pricey for the cost. Very nice pool area in a separate building. The breakfast area next to the front desk is cramped. Take advantage of checking out a bike at the front desk. Bikes are everywhere in Ft Collins and bike lanes exist on all but the busiest streets.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the property are most likely quieter than those close to College Ave.

We stayed here inJuly our entire girls softball team a total of 10 girls and parents and siblings. The hotel was neat,clean and ready for our stay. We stayed for a week and the staff was very accommodating to the team. They set breakfast our early for our early morning games and even loaned us a bq pit for a team party. My younger daughter loved the indoor pool. The location was wonderful and the bike libary was located on the property excellent hotel very nice and quite

Stayed here with my son while we did a little fly fishing on the Cache la Poudre River in July 2013. The room was clean and easy to access off the parking lot.

Front desk folks were friendly and helpful. Great location for Old Town Fort Collins, the University and the wilderness areas just out of town.

JCA,

Thanks for leaving us a review, I hope your fishing was both successful and fun! The Poudre river is just perfect this time of year for summer fun.

Came here to celebrate anniversary, room was not as reserved and staff attitude was pretty much take it or leave it. even though I had prepaid for the room they made no attempt to accommodate, compensate or apologize. I stayed at serval hotels on this trip and this was the worst I was treated and yet still paid the most. Room was average but dirty. Do not say here..better places in town. Very very disappointed.

Room Tip: Do not trust these guys..first place I ev stayed and got related like this

James,

I'm very sorry about having to change the room you reserved. We're upgrading the sidewalks and the room you reserved would have been inaccessible during your stay. I'm very confused about your check in experience, I had left a note on your reservation for my staff to discount your room for not accommodating the exact room you requested. They will be contacting you shortly to correct this. Please accept my apologies, I hope this didn't ruin your anniversary.
