    « Nice people »

    Very nice staff , beds were very comfortable , location was perfect . The breakfast was very good , The only problem we had was with the heater in the room . it was noisy and did not work well, I am sure they would have taken care of it if I had asked them ,

    This hotel exceeds expectations. I usually try to get a handicap room because of some balance problems. The grab bars in the shower are quite helpful to me. I tried to ask for such when I made my reservations on the BW website. But in the special requests section, it was impossible to make any special requests. NO ENTRY WAS POSSIBLE. When I checked in, I asked if there was a handicap room available. I was told by the desk clerk that my request had already been noted and my reservations were for a handicap room. The desk clerk told me that there was an entry on the hotel reservation system to book me in a handicap room. NICE GOING!!

    « Great Location, NO Soundproofing »

    This is a great location, but the rate is ridiculous for what you get and the fact that there is ZERO soundproofing. You can literally hear everything in this hotel. If someone sneezes in the room next to you, you hear it. I know Winter Park is a hip, trendy place to visit, but I just can't justify paying the price we paid given just how much we heard throughout our stay.

    « nice little hotel »

    so i only stayed here one day for work but i liked it. the hotel room was nice and clean. the bathroom was also nice and clean, i liked the little toiletries too. the bed was so comfortable, loved that it was king size and came with SIX pillows. thats usually unheard of lol. kind of sucks that the laundry is not actually a part of the hotel but i didn't mind the 5 minute walk, it was nice. sad that i didn't get to try the breakfast tho. overall, great hotel that i wouldn't mind staying at again.

    A better than average Best Western lodging. Front staff was very helpful in helping us find our jeep ride outfit that we were booked for but couldn't find . Rooms very clean with a typical continental breakfast but not far was a breakfast house. Would stay there agin.

    Very nice place to stay-would want to stay here again. Larger than average room, large refrigerator and microwave, clean, comfortable and quiet. Easy drive to restaurants and Rocky Mountain National Park.

    « Good place in Winter Park for those traveling with dogs »

    We stayed at this Best Western for one night for a special local event. The rates were high for what we were getting (a two star hotel), but this is Winter Park after all. The rooms were acceptable and clean. They included in-room coffee (as usual, not that great), a fridge, and a microwave. Important to us, the WiFi in the hotel worked well - strong signal and plenty of bandwidth. We had one small problem with the bathroom which the front desk addressed in under a minute. I wasn't expecting much, but thought that the breakfast was surprisingly good for this type of hotel. Better than I expected. The coffee with breakfast was very good (when was the last time that happened?). The front area of the hotel is set aside for breakfast. Driving by it almost looks like a small restaurant at the front. The size of this was nice - no small over-crowded room to have breakfast in! Another nice surprise in the morning. The hot tub was hot and clean, located inside of a small, outdoor building behind the hotel. Our room was quiet. We all slept well. I was surprised by an extra $10 pet fee for our dog, but if you dig it is stated on their web site (just getting a pet friendly room didn't mean there's no additional charge). We did, however, accept a milkbone treat for our dog. All things considered, we will certainly consider staying here again the next time we're in Winter Park.

    Spent a night while visiting the area . Staff was nice , room clean , bed a little uncomfortable but we had hiked a lot that day so it could be that . Breakfast was normal not exciting . Will stay again if in the area .

    « Nice place in the mountains »

    You have many options to stay along this stretch, but you will get great value here. Clean room, nice staff, decent breakfast. They have a hot tub but no pool, so people with kids please advise. They are located in an easy location, within walking to many shops and food.

    « Adequate; dog friendly »

    Better than average chain motel experience. Room was clean & without odors. Bed good??firm mattress; decent linens. It was quiet; so much so that we slept through breakfast, which ends @ 9:30. But, the server was nice & allowed me to get a few pastries that were still out when I showed up 10 minutes late. They have dog treats available at the front desk for your fur baby.

    « Petj-friendly motel »

    We chose to stay here because this hotel allows dogs for a $10 pet fee. The price of the room for one night was also reasonable. From the outside the hotel appears a little shabby, but it's very nice inside. There is an inside corridor. The rooms are spacious. We had two queen beds that were comfortable. Hair dryer, refrigerator, flat-screen TV, all available. I think there was a microwave, but am not sure. The room was clean and mostly quiet. However, in the morning we could hear footsteps above us. A full breakfast was available in the lobby, including a waffle maker for fresh waffles. Check -in was efficient and courteous, but the receptionist could have been a little friendlier. The biggest negative is parking. When we returned after dinner, we had to park in the business next door as all the parking spots were filled.

    « Had what we needed »

    First, we drove right by the Best Western, as we did not recognize the new Logo. It's on the northern side of the town. We had a two-bed room. Comfortable beds, and everything else in the room was fine as well. B'fast was the typical fare - waffles, some fruit, also OK. We'd booked for two nights, but needed to change that to one - no problem, as we gave them 24 hours. Friendly and gracious management.

    « Okay hotel in a great location »

    The best thing about this hotel is the location. Lots of restaurants, shops, and bars within walking distance. Next door is a place where you can rent mountain bikes. One thing to beware of is that this hotel is dog friendly so there are lots of rooms with dogs in them. One night I felt like I was at a dog convention. Also, if you have a ground floor room, you will hear lots of noise (foot traffic) from the overhead room. Not much sound insulation.. This place serves breakfast but it is pretty average. Scrambled eggs, bacon bits, oatmeal, yogurt.. Staff was friendly. I would say it is probably the best hotel in the area in terms of quality but you can find cheaper hotels nearby.

    « Excellent service! »

    We stayed here for one night before a wedding. The personnel were great to our daughter who was traveling with a one year old. The allowed her to use a freezer for some breast milk she needed to keep cold. Also the food at breakfast was wonderful.

    They had very quiet and comfortable beds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with lots of options including almond milk and a variety of teas. Would definitely recommend. Good location.

    « Good hotel »

    I've stayed here several times over the past several years. Always clean, pleasant staff and a good, hot breakfast. I had a special request for a handicap room and the desk clerk called me about 4 pm saying that he had just seen my request and was changing my room. Handicap rooms were not on the website, or at least I didn't see them.

    « Great location, average property »

    The location was fabulous! Centrally located on the main strip of town. The hotel itself is very average, with outdated décor, and very thin walls and ceilings. Our group had traveled for several hours and we were having a beverage and visiting, and got a call from the people above us to ask us to be quiet. We should have been able to visit without disturbing anyone else. The price for the room was a bit much for the type of property it was, but I guess we paid for location. I wish they would have continued breakfast a bit later, since it was the weekend, and none of us really wanted to be up and dressed by 9AM

    « Quiet, Comfortable Beds, and a Great Breakfast! »

    This is a great little find in Winter Park. The staff was nice, check-in was easy, nice comfortable beds -- simply no hassle. Add to that a nice breakfast and a very affordable price. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Would highly recommend ! »

    It was a Great hotel in the heart of town. All of the amenities are included. they had the best hot chocolate available 24/7! The staff was great, customer oriented and very helpful. Would highly recommend!

    « Great stay »

    Awesome breakfast that varied slightly from one day to the next. The staff was very friendly, even the ladies cleaning the room said hi as you passed them in the hallway. Front desk staff was able to give recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Room was very clean and beds and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom was spotless and shower had good water temp and pressure. Hot tub was large enough to seat 6-8 people comfortably, and could fit more, if necessary. Every part of the hotel was well maintained, clean, and free of bad smells. THIS HOTEL HAS AIR CONDITIONING!!! AC is not so common in hotels/resorts in the mountains, but this one had a well running air conditioner that wasn't too loud. Close by and free parking was well appreciated. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Vacation stay »

    This was a very good hotel experience. The staff went out of their way to help us with our needs. We were a larger group and I just want to say thank you. We will stay here again. The rooms are well equipped and were very clean. The breakfast was good and had a nice variety.

    « Quality Stay »

    Selected this hotel based on reviews and the reviews were spot on. No regrets choosing this hotel. Would stay here again. Only minor issue is that the walls were thin and you could hear all conversations in the hallway outside your room.

    « Very pleasant property »

    very nice property to relax and slow down. Central location allows walking to most restaurants and many retail spots. Rooms are clean and location is quiet when it needs to be. Breakfast is more than adequate.

    « Really good place »

    This Best Western is well situated to the town of Winter Park. The room was very nice, the bed really wonderful. When I asked for an extra blanket, I got one immediately. The lobby is small and the breakfast is served there, and that worked OK. The breakfast food was presented nicely, and was of good hotel quality. My overall experience is a resounding thumbs up.

    « Average room, good breakfast, & great customer service »

    My friends and I stayed here just 1 night because it was the closest, affordable room near RMNP. It was definitely way more than I would usually pay for this type of room (two queen beds and definitely not updated in a while), but it was 4th of July weekend and last minute, so I didn't have much of choice. The room was clean, the beds comfy, and the shower ran hot even though it made a funny noise. Breakfast was good and free. They had a good selection of hot and cold items that seemed fresh. There was limited parking, so make sure wherever you have to park is not going to be towed because a few other establishments share the parking lot. We just doubled checked with the hotel staff and that was that. The staff were very friendly, and we had no problem checking in late (after 8pm). They even saved us some money because the receptionist noticed we only had 3 instead of 4 people. That reduced our rate just a bit. Can't say I'm a huge fan of charging for more than 2 people especially since we were there for less than 12 hours, but that just seems to be the way things are going, unfortunately. The same lady helped us with a few things the next morning as well, so for customer service, this place was great! Average on everything else.

    « Nice room, good free breakfast »

    I was here fo four nights. My room was comfortable and I suspect recently updated. Like other hotels in this category the room was small, but I had a microwave and small fridge and a flat panel tv that worked well. My experience was that the place was pretty quiet, and the staff was cordial and welcoming. The free breakfast was good, though seating was not adequate. Parking is also tight. I'd stay here again.

    4
    « Great service, but noisy »

    We had a nice stay here. We stayed in a larger room with 2 queen murphy beds and a sofabed. The room was nice with extra space, but the room was right next to the office and right across from the ice machine so it was very noisy. The breakfast was okay, we appreciated that they had 3 waffle machines, so there were no lines waiting to make waffles. We didn't use the hot tub but it was stuck in a shed at the back of the hotel no nice views of scenery or anything.

    5
    « Clean, good breakfast, friendly staff »

    We spent one night here and had a great experience. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very clean and kept nice. Nothing fancy, but we were comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was the usual continental breakfast fare, but there were plenty of tables, a nice sunny room and food was well supplied.

    4
    « A stay for work »

    This hotel is in a great location and pet friendly! The service upon check in and departure was fast and friendly. The breakfast was satisfying. The staff were friendly to my pet and made us feel welcome. Other pet friendly hotels have been less friendly.

    « Great for access if you use a wheelchair »

    Really good access and location for the town of Winter Park. On the route of the shuttle bus in winter time. Good size rooms with clean furnishings. The breakfast is basic but worth having but a mini supermarket is close.

    « Over priced »

    We have stayed at many Best Western locations and this was not near as nice as others. We were charged extra for a mountain view (which we asked for) we were very disappointed. We expected more for the extra charge. It wasn't much of a view to be charged extra for. The room was clean, but the bathroom was in an odd location and way too many mirrors in there! The breakfast area was odd as well, it was located IN the lobby. People were walking through from checking out while we were eating, odd. The food was good a nice variety.

    4
    « quick overnight »

    This Best Western provided a nice quick getaway even if it was a bit expensive. However, this hotel came in under cost for other hotel options in the area. Location was great right in heart of Winter Park and all staff was very friendly. Breakfast offered many options, but I would have liked more fresh fruit choices. Hotel was clean. Although we did not bring our dog, this is a pet friendly hotel. Love those. Complete with doggie treats at the front desk.

    « BEST stay this year! »

    Great location within walking distance of everything we needed when not on excursions, extremely friendly and helpful staff at check-in during stay and at check-out, best complimentary breakfast yet this year, relaxing family vacation!

    « Nice place to stay »

    I found the Alpenglo Lodge to be up to the standards I would expect from a Best Western Hotel. It was neat and clean and quiet. The folks at the front desk when I checked in were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good for what I expect. My only thought was that it may be about time to replace beds? I thought it felt hard and "lumpy", but not awful. I would go back to this place.

    « Jazz Festival Fun »

    This is a nice hotel that is centrally located to most attractions in Winterpark, Colorado. It is clean and comfortable and service is decent. WiFi is somewhat slow and there is only 1 ice machine on the property. Breakfast is good. Microwaves available in eating area. You need to use these to heat things as there are no microwaves(or refrigerators) in the rooms. I really like this hotel because it is easy walking distance to Jazz Festival venue.

    4
    « Great location »

    Great 2 night stay within walking distance to most offerings in Winter Park for us. Enjoyed the fact that the windows in the rooms open to enjoy the mountain night breezes and breakfast was a nice bonus. We were pleased and booked for next year!

    « Quiet, clean, pet friendly »

    I was a little uncertain about this hotel because they have designated pet friendly rooms that apparently hadn't been updated along with the rest of the motel...however, the room was still very nice and clean, although somewhat small for three adults and a child. The bathroom is dinky! Not much room for your toiletries, but there were towel bars and a small glass shelf next to the vanity/sink. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The parking area is pretty small...although you can park towards the back of the motel and enter through the back door, not sure how good that would be in the winter. There was a fridge in the room, no microwave, and a fairly large good flat screen tv. The breakfast area is basically part of the lobby and you enter through there from the parking lot...a little awkward, especially with a dog. The breakfast was well stocked and had the average sausage, eggs, cereals and three waffle makers. The arrangement of the serving area was a little tight, especially around the waffle makers when people hang there and don't move! Many restaurants and shops are within walking distance from the motel. All in all we would definitely return, great value for the price.

    « South of Rocky MT Park »

    We were coming from the south and continuing north but wanted to travel through the Rocky MT Park, and this Best Western in Winter Park was perfect. Nice clean and comfortable. With lots of options for food close by. We tried the BBQ place right across the street and it was really good! Good breakfast with eggs and waffles. Nothing really to complain about here. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Winter Park.

    « Good but far from perfection »

    Small and smart hotel in the town Center of Winter Park, close to shopping and restaurants. Spent here two nights in a king room where everything was looked after with precision. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom was perfectly clean, with high quality towels and complimentary items. Breakfast goes directly in the lobby, with good coffee and juices, fine toast bread and yogurt. unfortunately staff was not so smart in renewing food and pancake mix, even after many requests of clients. there was no people with a uniform so it was impossible to identify staff members, that spent time playing at the computer instead of working at breakfast and clean the tables. So we had to do all by ourselves and wait a lot for toast bread and other food. Needs improvement.

    3
    « Decent but not updated »

    I went with my family and enjoyed my time. The location is terrific since it is in the middle of town. The rooms were nice but the hotel looked dated. I would first look at the Holiday Inn(if the rates are the same, I would stay at the Holiday Inn). My room never fully locked. The door would look shut but was not actually closed. I did tell two different employees. I was not upset it was not fixed while I was there since the hotel felt safe. I am sure it will be fixed in the near future. Despite the fact the hotel looked dated, I would come back again.

    « Very nice! »

    Staff is very friendly and the hotel is nice. This is good hotel to stay out when you are visiting Winter Park. It is close to downtown but yet far enough away that you do get disturbed by its traffic (people). I would of gave it 5 stars but the walls are kind of thin and I could hear almost everything that was going on above, in the rooms next to me and out in the hallway.

    « Uncomfortable in Winter Park, CO »

    Felt uncomfortable the minute we walked into hotel. Booked room and got room right above lobby. Easy to go to breakfast but husband slept and I did not. Breakfast fine but felt like we were being watched. Caused me to put raw pancake bater on finished waffles and decaf coffee into my oatmeal. Ate both anyways and left right after breakfast. Next Best Western we stayed at in Louisvlle, Co rolled out the red carpet for us and made up for this bad experience. Overall I would not go to Winter Park, Co unless I rented a condo.

    « OK, but not great »

    We spend two nights here. Our room was very clean but not that big. No microwave and/or fridge in the room. Breakfast is not very good, not much to choose from and besides that, they were out of waffle dough. I think there are nicer places out there in Winter Park. But prices are good, you get what you pay for.

    « Fantastic stay »

    I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the winter park area. This was my first stay with a best western hotel before and I was a bit apprehensive about it. But I was throughly impressed. Our room was very clean and in a great area. We also enjoyed the continental breakfast every morning.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are decent and very clean, the staff is friendly and the price is great. The best part was the free breakfast. They offer a great variety. I had a plate full of delicious eggs, bacon, self-made waffle, and yogurt every morning!

    « Not the most welcoming »

    The hotel suffices for an overnight stay. The room was clean, with all basic amenities. Reception was a bit cold though and some staff even gave a hostile vibe, same for some people hanging around the hotel. Parking is a bit limited. Nevertheless, for one night this is no issue. I would not recommend the breakfast, have a strong coffee further down the road.

    « Friendly good accomodation »

    My wife & I stayed here on our way into Rocky Mountain NP. This was convenient, comfortable and welcoming. As with most BW hotels, a breakfast is included and this set us up for the day. Rooms & beds are both a good size and ensured a good sleep. Front desk was great - the padlock on my wife's suitcase had broken - but locked - some tools were found and I managed to get the lock off; they also provided a good recommendation for dinner.

    « Good Choice, right downtown »

    New feeling rooms. Equipped with mini fridge and microwave. Located right downtown, easy walk to several different restaurants. The hotels complimentary breakfast was good, self-make waffles, eggs, sausage, breads, yogurts and cereal. The evening and morning desk staff was very friendly and helpful. You can easily catch the ski shuttle to the resort. Just a few steps. Hot tub could use some work.

    « good choice for Winter Park »

    We have stayed here a couple of times, and it is our favorite hotel in town. Updated rooms, excellent beds, diverse free breakfast, friendly staff, and right across the street from the ski bus stop (and very close to a number of restaurants). The price is all over the place, so it pays to check frequently. Only negative thing is the walls are not very soundproof.

    « Great Value »

    Local family told us this is the best place to stay -- the location was perfect for skiing at WinterPark (only 5 mins away) and equally perfect for apres-ski activities in town and visiting family. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful beyond measure. Our room was clean and spacious enough for our needs. Breakfast was good enough to fuel us through the day. Overall, it was a great value across the board and we'll stay there again when we go back.

    Family like atmosphere and great service for modest size Hotel - parking could be a challenge but they seem to work it our and the adjacent property is owned by the Hotel family so all was good! Great views to the South and easy walking to many other activities. Look forward to going back in June 2016 as well. Twice a year every year would be great!

    « Ideal for a Ski Trip - Location and Value »

    Stayed here with a party of wheelchair users, some of which had greater needs than I, so stayed in a standard room rather than an accessible one. Beds where comfy, more than enough room to manoeuvre around the room in my wheelchair, bathroom was fit for purpose, staff where friendly and helpful. Great place to rest the achey bones after a day on the slopes! The free hot chocolate in the lobby and the hot tub where great touches.

    « Practical and clean. »

    We have received very good service by the staff. The hotel is old and bare essentials. You can hear other guests walking by. We had a nice view. Pricey for a 3 star place. Very decent breakfast. Parking is a challenge.

    This is an older Best Western, but it seems to have had a recent remodel. The rooms were very nice with very comfortable beds. The furniture was updated and the bathroom was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and the lobby was clean. The breakfast was above average. I would certainly stay here again.

    « Comfortable and Convenient »

    We stayed here for our ski trip at Winter Park. It was very close to the resort. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was not gourmet but allowed us to have a hearty breakfast before skiing all day. The heater in the room was quiet and efficient despite it being below zero outside. We rented our equipment from the place right next door and ate dinner across the street. All considered it was a good price for a nice, clean and conveniently located hotel.

    « All you need for a short stay »

    First of all, I think a lot of reviews start out on the negative aspects, my take on this motel, is that its excellent for a stay of few nights, If this is your "dream" vacation, look elsewhere. Pros. ..spotlessly clean, great beds, great showers, and probably the best motel breakfast ever, Coffee was good, and overall selection and quality was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful.. Shuttle to Winter Park ski area, stops across the street, and is probably better than paying for parking at the ski area as the walk to lifts can be a pain.. You can transfer from the bus when you get to the resort area, to the Blue Willycab (also free) which takes you to about 40 yds from the main lifts. The only negative of the motel, as that the walls are a bit thin and sound travels.. but it didn't bother me at all.

    « Good Inexpensive Stay - shuttle ride away from skiing. Bit noisy... »

    Good value for money, pet friendly, family friendly - lots of skiers. Breakfast included and is actually not bad. Walls are thin so when kids run down hall in ski boots,it's very noticeable, particularly when parents yell at them at 7 am. However, staff and guests friendly and generally helpful. Shuttle stop right next door and across street to Winter Park, centrally located, 15 minutes most by shuttle to base. Walk-able to good restaurants, reasonably close to Foundry Pizza Cinema. I'd definitely stay again but probably bring my ear plugs for early family skiers!

    « Meh »

    It's a clean, basic hotel. Hot tub lukewarm and in a weird offsite room with a snow covered path outside. Food was two star breakfast. Room was okay. Cleaning staff is good. Front desk staff was helpful, pleasant. Decent value. I wouldn't be rushing back... Will probably go to a condo next time. Nice size fridge and a microwave. Heater a little temperamental but it's an old hotel. Get what you pay for.

    « Quality stay for good price »

    For the price and location you cannot beat it. The free breakfast is better than most continental I've experienced. Location is right in the heart of Winter Park and there is plenty of restaurants and activities right outside the door.

    « No Sleep! »

    TA has never steered me wrong but this one is a total miss. Everything about this motel is outdated and marginally average. The bed and linens were adequate and the room was clean. they offered me express check out when I arrived, but it was not available at check out! After a full day of skiing, all I wanted was a good night's sleep. Impossible! The heater keep clicking and turning on with a roaring blast every 45 minutes. I even tried ear plugs. I tried turning it low, still keep cycling off and on. It would not turn off completely. Unless you sleep like the dead, I would warn you to stay somewhere else. Definitely a disappointing 2 night stay. I paid $124 for each night. Usually I stay at the Winter Park Lodge (same price range) which at least has a heating system which allows you to sleep through the night.

    « Very nice accommodations »

    We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Best Western. The rooms were very nice. The beds were comfortable. The bed linens were cozy. We were on the second floor so there was some noise from the people above us. There is a nice breakfast served in the lobby each morning. The only small disappointment was that the hot tub was in a small building outside the motel. I was hoping it would be inside because it is a bit chilly going back into the motel in the middle of winter!

    « Good Enough »

    There was nothing to complain about, but there was nothing that was outstanding either. For a ski town, the price per night was ok, but the property felt a bit dated and run down for the price. Overall, it was clean and the experience was not bad. It served its purpose.

    « Nice Value, Friendly Staff »

    We usually get a condo to ski at Winter Park, but decided to try the Best Western for value and to get points. The hotel is very well maintained hotel, if not understated. The staff was well informed, helpful, and VERY friendly. We originally booked a King Bed room, but upon arrival they suggested we move to a different floor with 2 queen beds because of carpet replacement, not a big deal. However, being it just me and my wife and ski gear the King Bed would have been better. The only real complaint I would have is they don't provide a very good place to store your ski gear. We ended up storing our gear near the door in the coat rack, but felt bad about storing the boots on the new carpeting.

    « Clean rooms, great location, poor service »

    The front desk does not go out of their way for friendliness or great service. We struggled to get the luggage cart in the main entrance only to see that had we used the doors on the other side, it would have been much easier. Was sent to wrong room (it happens, but lots of stuff like this happened to us on this stay). Two housekeepers watched as I struggled with the doors upon departure with the luggage cart and garbage bags piled up by the doors as they attended to their duties. Lots of hallway noise in the middle of the night. Beds, okay. Great location, near where we wanted to go. Refrigerator in room makes a LOUD buzzing noise sporadically through the night - ugh. We won't be back.

    Bob at the front desk was a lifesaver.....overall it was a satisfactory stay, breakfast was fine, other guests smoking marijuana was horrid, but staff seemed to take care of it. Bed was comfy, room was clean, locationwas handy, obviously one of the nicer places to stay, besides the swanky resorts right on the slope.

    « Convienent and Clean »

    Close to down town and shuttle to mountain located right across the street. Hot tub was cleaned twice during our 4 night stay. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful with restraint recommendations. Allowed to check in early in the morning and given breakfast at no cost. Excellent hospitality.

    « Very convenient and average ski crash pad »

    The ski shuttle picks up on the :15 and :45 right across the street. It takes exactly 15 minutes to get to the Winter Park base. Couldn't drive there faster, even pay parking. The hotel has your standard generic breakfast of pastries, cereal, coffee, juice, pre-formed omelettes and sausage, waffles. You've definitely had this breakfast before. But it will get you out the door quick. Rooms decent, very comfortable beds, reasonably quiet, and nice staff.

    « Great value and hospitality »

    During our repeated stays at this property, we have always encountered cordial staff that provide all guests with a great room value in a hospitable manner. The rooms are very clean and have a fresh decor. The location of the property is very convenient to nearby restaurants, a local bus route and assorted mountainous activities.

    « Great hotel with very good staff »

    This hotel works great for skiing! Staff is friendly and efficient. Room, check in and breakfast area were very clean. Beds were comfortable and warm. Staff was friendly. Hot tub was working and relaxing. Staff did a great job with continental breakfast. They kept fresh food out and drink machines filled.

    « Perfect for a ski weekend at Winter Park »

    My wife and I stayed here for three nights for a ski weekend. This hotel was perfect for us. The location couldn't have been better. We rented skis from the store right next door, and the bus stop was right across the street from the hotel. Take the bus to go skiing. It's super easy and you won't have to mess with paying to park at the mountain. The hotel is in the middle of town so you can walk to any dinner place. We walked to Hernandos and had amazing pizza and beer one night and then went to the some other local places the next night. The breakfast in the morning was good, pretty average for hotels. Nothing fancy, but it was free so thats good. The hot tub was also really nice after skiing. It's in a separate building in the back and could definitely be hotter, but it was still nice to relax in. The room was good. Average for a Best Western, but the beds were very comfy and there was plenty of room for all our ski gear and clothes. I'd recommend this place for those looking for a place to stay for a ski weekend in town.

    Great location. Clean and very friendly staff. Option of late check out at no extra charge and complimentary breakfast was great. Free shuttle to mountain and pick-up drop-off was right outside hotel.

    « Wonderful experience at this hotel! »

    I really have no complaints. We stayed December 20-24. I guess it depends on what side of the hotel you're on, but we had a view of mountains. Yes, there was a business right next door, but that's really nothing to complain about. I can't imagine the other side having a bad view. For the people who bring shower shoes (I am one of those), I didn't feel the need to wear them. The bathroom was very clean and the water drained quickly. The room was very nice and clean. It has a microwave and refrigerator, which was very helpful. The front desk staff were super awesome, as well! Bob was great! Oh- the continental breakfast was very good! Waffles, eggs, sausage or bacon, cereal, oatmeal, organic yogurt w/ toppings, and several varieties of milk - for the lactose free people. As you can see, we would highly recommend this hotel!

    « Very nice and simple hotel »

    From check in to overnight stay this is a very well kept hotel. The staff is so friendly and accommodating that you would think your at a 5star diamond resort. Rooms and beds are comfortable. They except dogs but only a limited amount of rooms. Love the no smoking policy.

    « You Won;t Be Dissatified With This Hotel »

    We were having carpeting put down in our house 45 minutes away from Winter Park and needed a place to stay for a night. We chose Winter Park as it is a great place to visit! I went on line and found the Best Western Alpenglo Lodge. Everything was GREAT! The room was small, #306, but very nicely decorated, and had everything you needed! It was VERY clean and comfortable! The bed, King size, was VERY comfortable and we slept very well! The breakfast in the morning was the nicest we've ever had at a Best Western. You couldn't leave breakfast hungry! We would stay there again if we were in Winter Park! The staff was Excellent!

    Nice and cozy, quiet, close to everything for shopping and dining to match any budget. Free breakfest, can't be any closer to the free WP shuttle, has that mountain/rustic feel to it. Highly recommend and will stay again next time up in Winter Park. Friendly staff, clean rooms.

    Wonderful place, friendly staff and we will be staying here again. Bob went out of his way to accomodate us for early check in and also give us another room than reserved to allow us to possibly stay another night and not have to change rooms, which we did just that. The hot tub is wonderful. The location is perfect as the bus picks you up right across the street to take you to Winter Park every 30 minutes

    « Perfect accomodation for our ski trip »

    We are very happy with our stay at the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub after skiing each night. The breakfast spread was better than usual also (Greek joghurt, almond milk, great coffee). The hotel is very close to the Base Village of Winterpark. You can even take the bus which stops right across the street. We also enjoyed dinners in walking distance from the hotel. We will totally stay here again when we come to Winterpark next!

    « An excellent stay »

    We picked the hotel to allow us an early start into the RMNP and it was a really good pick. Reception was excellent and although the hotel is dated and rather old fashioned, the rooms were clean provided a pleasant place to stay - so much so that we decided to make use of facilities and eat in. Excellent value for money

    « Winter Park getaway »

    This in-town hotel rates well except for parking. It is close to several restaurants, shopping, entertainment. The doggie area is small but serves its purpose. The hot tub is in a separate building so you freeze getting back to the hotel on chilly days/nights. Our second day the breakfast bar had run out of milk and yogurt. When pastries and bread were gone they did not replenish. The coffee was instant with an aftertaste. But we went there for sleeping, not eating.

    We normally like to stay at bed & breakfasts or boutique hotels and the like, but this Best Western is hard to beat. The front desk staff was wonderful, breakfast good, and location is perfect. Great place to stay in Winter Park. Close to the tubing and the resort. Walking distance from lots of restaurants. Hot tub a bit small, but nice after a long day of skiing. Will definitely stay here again.

    This was our 2nd time staying here.

    Friendly staff along with clean and comfortable room. We were passing through on our way to Steamboat Springs. This was only a one night stay and when we arrived the young lady at the desk was very personable which is a big plus for us. The rooms were not spacious but were clean, comfortable and everything was in working order. We would definitely stay here again

    « Expected more from Best Western »

    After our previous experience with Best Western, we expected more. We had to take a two queen room instead of a room with one bed. The room was small and not very well laid out. It was difficult for two people to move around without running into each other, I don't see how 4 people could manage. We could hear other guests coming and going, noise carried easily from the hallway to our room, as was the traffic noise from the restaurants and bar next door. Breakfast was just OK, the selection was very limited.

    « Accommodating »

    This hotel provides an excellent value for the cost. It is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is ample and tasty. Staff are pleasant. The room was a little small, but sufficient. The sink/mirror was with the toilet and shower (as opposed to being separated by a door), so not as accessible with 4 in a room, getting ready to attend a wedding.
