I was really excited to try this hotel because my toddler loves dinosaurs, but the overall experience was just okay. The room and facilities are nice, but as others have noted, customer service can use some improvement. We stayed here for 3 nights. The first day we were there, about half an hour after getting into our room I found there was a huge piece of metal sticking out of one of the beds. I unfortunately found it with my leg, where it left a serious bruise and baseball sized lump that I still have, 4 days later. I went to the front desk to notify them of the issue and was only asked if I wanted a band-aid. It was slightly patronizing and I didn’t appreciate the fact that it couldn’t be fixed then as we had a clumsy 3 year old with us that I could see it doing serious damage to if she fell on it. I was told to talk to management the next day. So, taking matters into my own hands, I taped one of their hand towels around the bar to keep anyone else from running into it. The next morning I let the manager at the desk know, and she didn’t really seem concerned until I showed her the picture of the metal and said I’d already injured myself on it and was trying to prevent someone else from getting hurt. She said they would add bonus points to my best western account as compensation. We left and were gone for a few hours and when we came back, the bed was fixed, but no one had notified us that people would be entering our room while we were gone. Nothing was out of place, but I’m not a fan of people in my room when I’m not there and all my stuff is. On the second day we were there our room keys were deactivated while we were out. The door handle to our room was difficult at best and you had to jiggle it up and down to try and get it to open, sometimes taking several key swipes to get in. It was just a disappointing stay.

Pillows are small, beds are stiff and our membership with Bestwestern was not even acknowledged and we are diamond members. The clerk when we checked in could barley speak or understand the English language and his appearence was quite dissheveled. Henry Jameson

Good features: (1) Place has a dinosaur motif - lots of bones and artifacts in the lobby and dining area, lots of murals all around stairs and exterior walls, there's a 'dino expert' on duty 7am-10am Fri-Sun in lobby, with lots of toy dinosaurs to do 'show & tell.' (2) Generally quiet area - it's set of the main road by a side street, with plenty of parking. (3) Beds and rooms comfortable. (4) Hot breakfast with variable choices each day - sometimes link sausages, sometimes corned beef hash, etc., although their potatoes were less than MacDonald's quality. Not good features: it's a pet-friendly place, and they do try and locate pets along one or two of their four 'wings.' Except we are not dog owners, and were put into one of the 'dog wings,' unbeknownst to us, for our 5-day stay. Generally not a problem, except next door to us there was a 'yapping' dog over the weekend. Their owners just left the dog alone in their room for hours at a time, and the dog was understandably upset and constantly yapping and whining. We complained to night manager, who simply stated: "dog owners do this all the time, there's nothing I can do since they're not in their room." He suggested we take it up with manager in the morning, which we did. She stated that night mgr could have called the dog owners on their cell and told them to come back to room, since hotel has everyone's cell phone numbers. She also said we could have requested a room away from dog wings when we first checked in, but how is one to know to ask for that? We suggested that in the future they have a sign at front desk that states just that - if you don't want to be in the dog wings, ask for a room in the non-dog wings. Manager did give us 10% off our bill for our inconvenience. Note: We don't dislike dogs; we just dislike bad dog owners who leave their pets unattended for hours at a time in a strange room

In my three day stay at this hotel all my expectations were met. The room was the right size, clean, and kept at a comfortable temperature. All the amenities were available as promised. The staff was friendly and willing to help. I enjoyed working out in the exercise room. The ice machine worked. The price was reasonable with the multi-day discount. I would probably stay there again.

We had a room on the ground floor overlooking the pool. We only heard people one night, the soundproofing was great. We were in town for a graduation open house, this hotel was the lowest price and had the highest reviews. It lived up to our expectations. We had 3 families staying at this location and they all agreed after visiting other family members at different hotels that this pool was the best. Breakfast is great, the waffles lived up to their reputation. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. It will be our go to hotel when visiting family in Denver from now on.

We experienced not only great service and friendly staff but a unique almost misuse quality to this hotel. Befor we checked out we got to ask questions form a Dino expert and touch some bones. The breakfast was amazing with hot options and plenty of food. We would definitely stay here again the pool in the courtyard is so cool. Thank you for being a lovely facility for my family to stay!

Arrived around 10pm after all the airline and rental car issues to find out my room I reserved and pain for months in advance was not available, when I got frustrated from this and the tiredness of the long day, Jazmyn at the desk told me well maybe you shouldn't be traveling then, she was rude, argumentative, amd just down right nasty, so she sent us to another hotel for the night and they acted like they were doing us a favor by offering to cover the room... funny part is their credit card was declined when we checked out, luckily for us the Marriott didn't give us any headaches about it and sent us on our way. Stay clear of this place. Oh and the Sales Manager as she's called Christina wasn't much better, and when I let her know how we were treated she just kinda smirked and that was it.

I apologize for any inconveniences that you incurred while staying here. We try to do our best to please the guest.

We were not sold out, we just didn't have a king room when you checked in. But we had one the next day. Thank you for your comments.
