Enjoyed 4 nights here while we visited different Colorado sites. Very clean and quiet. Everyday, housekeeping made our bed, cleaned room/bathroom, and left clean towels. Was cool weather and we did not use pool, but looked inviting. Very nice management. Felt safe...parked right

We do remember that you made a reservation with us and requested a refund right after your check-in. We do have a very strict pet policy to provide a comfortable stay for our guests. No pets are allowed in our lobby and all no-pet friendly rooms. Therefore, it is definitely not an odor of cat excrement. Although we were not able to smell any bad odor from the lobby or from your room, our management still cancelled your reservation for free and gave you a refund for your happiness. Other guests who stayed in the same room that you checked in told us that they enjoyed their stay and liked their room. We believe that you had a higher expectation and standard and you are very sensitive to odors. As you are very sensitive to odors, we recommend you check out a room first before making any reservation from your next trip so that you can have a better stay. Lastly, all of our reviews are based on every guest's own experience. They wrote positive reviews because they enjoyed their stay with us. We understand that you were not satisfied with the room and could not agree with other guests' reviews, but those positive reviews are reflecting what many guests experienced at our property.

We stayed for 4 nights.(Room 29) The room was clean. The staff was friendly. The pool was also great. Super location too! The only complaint would be the towels, small and kind of hard. But overall a great stay! Beds were comfortable too!

Nice room! Not a cheap bed like some hotels. Quiet pool area with a sauna. The pool water was warm and not frigid. What a treat for my husband and I. A pool we can relax in while our son swims! Hot tub with hot water and fast jets. This was truly a treat not only for us but our
