We happened upon this hotel purely by chance. I wasn't looking forward to staying because I've had really bad experiences in the past with hotels under the "Best Western" name. Turns out, I needn't have worried. It ended up being one of the best stays we've had anywhere!
This hotel is clean, the rooms are updated, and the location, on the edge of Frisco, Colorado, is convenient to many local ski areas and popular outdoor activity destinations. What sets the hotel apart, however, is the STAFF.
The night we checked in, the front desk attendant, a wonderful man named Dee, immediately made us feel welcome with his caring and helpful attitude. He set us up with a very well located room at a great rate. He gave us a heads-up on the best places to eat and offered several publications containing discount coupons. One would hope that this would be the modus opperandi of all hotels, but sadly, it is not.
Dee also helped us find an honest mechanic when we had car trouble, which was HUGE. Being stranded on the side of the road is not a pleasant thing, made much worse when you don't know where to turn for help. Problem solved! The rest of the staff that we had occasion to interact with, without exception, were very friendly and always had a genuine smile ready.
As for the hotel itself... First word: CLEAN. And I'm very picky. There are no "weird smells" in the hotel anywhere and none in the room. I deliberately looked for things that weren't clean and could find none. The pool and two hot tubs are great. Your kids will love it. The free continental breakfast is offered from 7 to 10am and includes a wide variety of baked goods, yogurt, fruit, juice and coffee, and waffles made fresh, among other items. It really is more than "continental."
Delicious cookies are offered at the front desk. There is a book of local menus in the lobby, so you can know ahead of time where you want to go. Board games are also available in the lobby. There is a guest laundry on the 2nd and 4th floors, $1 per load. Cable tv offers a ton of channels, and there is free wi-fi access. Great news: Pets are allowed, for a $20 non-refundable charge!!
Our room had two queen beds, which were very comfortable and had great pillows. The bathroom features a *very* high shower head (great for the tall folks) and a curved shower rod. The room's a/c and heat unit functioned well and without annoying sounds. There is plenty of lighting. A microwave and small fridge would have been great, but those might be available in other rooms, I don't know. There could be a few more electrical outlets--our family has four ipods, four cell phones, and a laptop, all needing charging overnight.
If you find yourself in Frisco or the surrounding area, I highly recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed.
