“VERY COMFY & CLEAN IN OUT-OF-THE-WAY PLACE”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were going on a Centennial Canoe-sponsored trip on the Gunnison River, and this was the closest place we could find to stay the night before. It was surprisingly attractive, clean and comfortable, Grandsons liked the nice clean pool & grandparents appreciated the comfy bed. Kid-friendly restaurants right across the street. Would recommend for anyone.

Thank you for the great comments. It is always so nice to hear about guests enjoying our hotel. The pool is a great place to have the kids unwind. We have a maintenance staff who keeps it clean and fresh. I agree with you, our beds are comfy, glad you enjoy a good nights sleep. I know you had a great time on your canoe trip. Centennial is a great company. Hope to see you again. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Excellent---toilets are too short for men and women All of the staff were wonderful and helpful. Setting is perfect for our use. The indoor swimming pool and spa were a delight and very clean. We would stay there again when in the area. Rooms were very clean and the beds were excellent.

The team at our hotel wants to thank you for the great comments. We are so glad you enjoyed the pool and hot tub. On these hot days, a nice dip in the pool feels so good. Gave the housekeepers a pat on the back for a job well done too.
We are improving the hotel all the time, just added a new elevator. our next project is installing new chair high toilets, I agree with you, the ones we have now are too short, but they are being replaced.
From all our staff, thanks again for your comments.

It was late at night and we followed the signs to this BW. We were pleasantly surprised by the attentive staff and the quality of the room. My only complaint was that it was hot out, even at 10 PM, and the room took 2 hours to cool off.. The breakfast was typical fare, but presented in a nice way and the staff took care of our every need. Couldn't ask for more. We were really only looking for a place to crash, but instead found a really nice place.

Thank you so much for your comments. We have posted them for our staff to see. They work hard and appreciate the kind words from guests they have served. I apologize for your room not being at a cooler temperature and I appreciate you bring this to our attention. We have had a meeting with the housekeeping staff. They are going to take more care in checking the temperature settings of rooms as they do their final check.
Again, thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

Relatives we were visiting recommended BS Grande River Inn.....And after staying at primarily Comfort Inns across country were pleasantly surprised at the quality of accommodations and staff at this facility.....we opted for "parking lot" over the courtyard as my husband and son in law liked parking outside the room.........The décor was lovely...room fairly large...staff exceptionally friendly and helpful........breakfast was great !!!!! We ate in the courtyard area !!! The only downside was the chlorine content of the pool ....We were unable to sit in the area because of smarting eyes and hard to breathe. Understand a child threw up in the pool not too long after we left the pool area............When we checked out in the AM the pool was closed for cleaning...All in all it was an exceptional stay.......If more Best Westerns had the same quality of excellence we would stay there oftener!! Would definitely stay at this one again !!We did notice they had pool toys for children to use while there............

Thank you so much for the comments about our Hotel. The courtyard is a favorite of most guests. Great place to relax, a coffee in the morning or a glass of local wine in the evening. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. Hope to see you again soon. By the way, we now have a new elevator to take you to the second level in the courtyard. too.

We have stayed at the BW Grande River Inn & Suites several times and are never disappointed. The last couple of times we stayed there in April & May 2013, we requested a courtyard room & really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. We have never had a bad experience at this facility and are impressed with the management & employees and the way they maintain the facility.

Room Tip: The courtyard rooms seem quieter than the rooms that face the parking lot. We always get a second f...

I am utterly shocked by the great reviews for this hotel. The hotel was not awful, but before you stay here you should be aware that it seems to be in a very very poor part of town. The hotel seems like it has been getting improvements but the age and wear was definitely still showing. Interior bathroom doors appear to be old cheap wooden doors, ours would not even lock. Reserved a king room. Upon arrival and receiving key found a room with two queen beds. Immediately returned to the front desk and the clerk asked where I made my reservations (as if I brought this on myself - I reserved thru Best Western's website). The clerk also asked if I used anything in the room. Considering that I was gone no more than 15 seconds I found this to be sort of an irritating question! The clerk was polite and did quickly switch me to a king room. Even though I had to sign agreeing not to smoke in the room or be charged a hefty $250 fee - I found the room reeked of old smoke like a bar that has never been aired out. Considering that I just completed a road trip staying only in Best Western hotels and this was by far the most expensive, I am baffled to justify the price. The hotel did have a nice hot breakfast, pool, hot tub, and workout room, but considering the price and shady location I would never stay here again.

I'd like to tell our guests a little about the area our hotel is in. The hotel is located on the east edge of Grand Junction, CO. Across the street is a brand new Denny's Restaurant, new Gold's gym, several good fast food restaurants and a couple of nice sit down restaurants. If you need an ATM, we have Wells Fargo, Bank of the West and Alpine Banks there too. If you need gas, we have Shell and Shamrock stations close by. There are several small shopping centers near too, On our last Best Western inspection, we scored 984 points out of 1000, which is why we have a stiff non-smoking fine. We want to keep the rooms very clean and fresh. We are always improving the hotel. We have just installed a new elevator to take our guests to the second floor, where they can stay in a room overlooking a lovely secure courtyard. In the morning they can have their hot breakfast in the courtyard too. Our staff tries to give all of our guests the best service possible. Please check us out on facebook. Thank you Karen Nielson, owner
