“Trashy Hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2006

The first impression of this hotel was awful. It was a bad experience with my wife and two children. The staff was not helpful in checking in. The rooms are small and cleanliness is not high on the list. The hotel manager/owner was not cooperative in the matter, and I mentioned I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone.

Guidebooks raved about this place. Actually though, the room looked very ho-hum. Off and on, the toilet ran, just enough to disturb my sleep. Continental breakfast was not that great. The price was good and the hotel is in a quiet area of town, convenient to restaurants and such. Desk staff seemed very preoccupied and didn't bother to ask me how my stay was. I forgot to leave a note about the stupid toilet.

We just spent three nights over Thanksgiving week-end at the Glenwood Springs at the Best Western Antlers. While the price was right, next time I will spend a little more to get a better experience. Let me explain myself.

We opened our room door to find an older but comforting room. But what we found out as we walked around the room in our socks was that they chose great carpets to hide the dirt. The bottom of our kids and our socks turned black from all the dirt left on the floor! Needless to say, we didn't feel comfortable with our toddler crawling around on the floors. The next morning we found that the faucet on the shower was broken and had to be carfully worked or the handle would fall off. The best we could manage to get was a trickel out of the shower.

On our last night, the heater on our room failed to turn on. When I called the front desk they noted that they had calls from six other units in the same building with the same problem. Their solution: offer additional blankets. After noting that the temperatures were to drop into the teens that night, they finally offered a new room to us. So, at around 9:00pm, my wife, returning from the spa expecting to have a relaxing night, instead returned to packing and moving all our bags to another room - in another building clear accross the hotel campus. This move of course woke our children and the enjoyable evening turned into a far less than enjoyable one.

When sharing our experience and expressing the impression that the experience their decisions left on us, all they could do is express a less than sincere "These things happen...we're sorry...would you like to keep your bill on your charge card?"

Glenwood Springs is a great place to visit and we do this quite frequently since it is a great short vacation from our home in Denver area. However, next time I think I will pay the extra $20 or so a night for the Comfort Inn. A place where we had stayed before and enjoyed.

Glenwood Springs was recommended to us as a place to stop on the way from Denver to Las Vegas. The ambience seems to deteriorate as you head west on I-70. Vail was excellent, although I'm sure pricy. We stopped there for lunch. Glenwood Springs is in a scenic canyon with the Colorado river running by, but is not as lush as higher mountain towns. Once you get to Grand Junction you know you are in the Great Basin.

The Best Western Antlers was acceptable and the staff was nice. Nothing to rave about. On the internet it seemed more like a resort, but it is actually pretty standard. Just OK continental breakfast. We were up and out the door on our way across the desert by 8:00 am. The room was quiet and the pool nice.

I arrived in Glenwood Springs while the X-Games were in Aspen - the town was crowded. My reservation was at a place that turned out to be a dump, we did not stay there. We found the Antlers - it was a pleasant surprise. they gave us a nice quite room (in the adults-only building, we call it the Grandma & Grandpa wing). the room was delightful, the staff was most helpful, understanding and friendly. the Free breakfast was better then expected, although not like the ones you get in Scandanavia! The Room is full of trophies (hence the name) and was able to accomodate the X-gamers and the Grandma's just fine. I will go back. . . .

Very comfortable. Handy for the Interstate.
The only downside to this hotel is the lack of a restaurant however, it is close to a good selection in the town itself. The hotel recommended "Juicy Lucy's" which was excellent.

We really liked this place. We were upgraded to a spacious room with three queen beds, which was ideal for our family (and the beds were the most comfortable motel beds I've slept on). The staff was very friendly, breakfast was fine and the motel is an easy walk from the Springs. Highly recommended.
