This hotel is nice but they need to deal with cigarette and marijuana smoke in the 2nd floor halls based upon people smoking in their rooms or propping the doors open downstairs and smoking while the smoke pours into the building. The rooms are nice, the breakfasts very nice. We rented a suite but the sofa bed was broken. Details...

The outdoor heated pool is amazing. Small restroom in room. Clean towels and linens. Breakfast hours are too short and staff fumbled our Grab & Go snack bags and did nothing to remedy the situation. Convenient location and very clean.

We live locally, but have never actually been to the Morrison Dinosaur Ridge. We took the bus tour and stayed at the Best Western Dinosaur Hotel (and suggested they rename the dinosaur behind the registration desk "Reggie, the Registration Dinosaur"). What a wonderful hotel with a wonderful staff. The hotel has a wonderful location near many things, including the movie...

We visited rocky mountains for first time and spent our last nite at this hotel. The pool area was awesome after a long day of sight seeing and hiking! The hot tub was perfect and very clean. Looked like rooms had recently gotten a fresh coat of paint, only issue we had was bathroom door would not stay closed.

Nicely remodled hotel. Good breakfast, great people in the breakfast area and room cleaners. Some of the people at the front desk could use better customer service training. Beds are great, coffee is great and available all day. Very nice pool area and bar area. We have stayed here several times. I recently recommended it to my sister for a...

The Best Western Denver Southwest, better known as the Dinosaur Hotel, is a great place not only to stay in comfort, but also to check out many fossil replicas and learn a bit about Colorado's prehistoric past! This hotel is fun for the kids, has a very friendly staff, and supports local museums such as Dinosaur Ridge and the Morrison...

We have stayed at the Best Western Denver Soutwest, Lakewood, CO on several occasions over the past two years and have enjoyed our stay completely each time. The breakfast is great and the staff serving breakfast are efficient and friendly. The desk clerks are helpful and courteous and management is accommodating.

Our family stayed here one night while traveling from Colorado Springs to Estes Park. It was the best place we stayed all week. The room was clean, spacious, with comfortable beds. The bathroom was very clean and the bath linens were good quality, not the thin flimsy ones sometimes founds. Bed linens looked clean and crisp. All staff, from front...

I stay here exclusively when in Denver Metro Area. Very private location. Love everything about it. Highly recommend you stay here, although a little pricey. The TV is a flat screen, enjoyed it and the shows available. The new pool is handicapped accessible. Breakfast is great! Staff was delightful. Great private location. Wish more hotels were set back from the...
