    « Close to excellent! »

    This hotel is run very well. You can tell the person/people running this hotel take it seriously but often have a friendly smile on their faces. This almost takes it to an excellent rating from me but I spose I'm a tough rater. Don't hesitate to stay here from my experience!

    « Dirty Beds »

    This motel seems to be a good place to stay... But the truth the housekeepers don't change the bedding everyday like it should be changed it is only changed if they see a dirty spot on the bedding and still all the blankets don't get changed just that one dirty blanket so therefore the guests are still sleeping in dirty blankets who knows when the last time they have been washed. HOW DISGUSTING is that?? VERY DISGUSTING ??

    « Clean rooms, caring staff and good times »

    The breakfast is definitely worth getting up for, and everyone will do everything they can to insure that your stay goes well. The room is nice and I slept well, which is rare for a hotel for me. I only wish the pool hours were a little longer.

    « Clean rooms, great staff »

    We were impressed by the room. It was spotless and recently remodeled. The staff was friendly and breakfast was much better than your average fair. Scrambled eggs were made fresh and the the green chili was a welcome addition. Definitely worth more than the price paid.

    « Mixed feelings »

    This place is a two story, older motel. The front desk receptionist was very nice. The rather large room was very quiet with a comfortable bed. The pillows were all a little too thick for us and there was a smear of blood on the bathroom door....otherwise the room was very clean. I don't think they have elevators, which might be a concern for someone. Very reasonably priced.

    4
    « Older hotel, nice, pet friendly »

    The staff was very nice, easy check in and out. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable but needs some updating. We liked the dog area and it was pretty clean. The breakfast was included and it was pretty decent variety. Eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal...etc. We would stay here again.

    « Nice motel--Pet friendly »

    Room was very nice and clean. Staff was very friendly. Very pet friendly. Nice area to walk the dog. We always pick up after our dog and it appears most but not all others do...Room was quiet despite the fact that the in is close to the highway.

    « Very nice place to stay »

    The room was very nice, and the morning breakfast was great. Didn't hear much road noise. The beds were comfortable, the shower was great, and the place was clean and bright. The staff was very friendly. The only issue was that the place was not very full, yet we were put in a room right next to what appeared to be the only other occupied room on the second floor at the time. At least they were quiet... I hope we were.

    « Excellent value »

    We had a great stay here! The front desk staff was not especially welcoming, but our room was spacious and clean. The beds were comfy, the pillows were decent. The breakfast was honestly great! Biscuits and gravy, sausage, potatoes, and mini waffles with so many topping options. We had noisy neighbors (#thinwalls) but that's a risk of hotels. We with definitely stay here again!

    « Thin walls, noisy AC but a good breakfast »

    We stayed one night here whilst traveling. It is situated on a pretty busy road but the noise isn't too bad. We were given a room with an adjoining door (not in use), unfortunately because of this we could hear everything from next door. So much so their noisy A/C unit woke me up at 3am! The room itself is pretty tired but well equipped. The pool and breakfast were very good. Not sure I would return though.

    « Hard to find a better value »

    This is an older BW on the west side of Alamosa. Easy parking, easy highway access, quiet. Friendly staff, nice breakfast area. Though the hotel is older, the lobby, fitness center, pool area, and breakfast area appear to be newer. Electric outlets available for those with plug-in or electric vehicles.

    « A Solid-Gold Road Trip Stopping Point »

    What made this Best Western outstanding for us was the service we received upon arriving, cranky and burnt-out after a long day on the road. Maria greeted us at the front desk and happily and easily gave us the best room deal we could get. There was no waiting or weirdness, no hoops to jump through. Then, after we left our keys in our room twice while moving our stuff from the car to the room, Maria continued to be present, helpful, kind and jovial. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and clean, the beds soft and the breakfast--themed to the southwester cuisine--killed it. Express check out was worry free. We were rested and in good spirits for the next leg of the journey.

    « Great Place to Stay! »

    This place was recently remodeled and is a very nice place to stay. The staff is great and very attentive. It is located close to everything in town. We had a nice stay for 2 nights. No complaints. The breakfast is awesome as well.

    4
    « slept well »

    As usual, this BW is a good value. The service is pleasant and friendly; much appreciated. The breakfast is very good, and actually has real scrambled eggs and tasty coffee; thanks for that. The room was clean, and the staff placed us in the quieter wing; again much appreciated as many construction workers depart quite early often forgetting others' sleep. The TV listings need serious updating, as those in the room are almost useless.

    « Get bigger beds »

    Hotel is nice for a quick stop. Our room key would not open the swimming pool even after getting it program more than once. The beds need to be replaced and upsides. We had two beds and it was not comfortable for family of 4. I did not sleep well and you can hear your neighbors. But the best part was breakfast! The staff was very friendly and atmosphere was welcoming. I enjoyed having dial products. Overall descent price and hotel.

    « Nice place to stay! »

    On our way back to Texas and stopped here for the night. Slept great! Decent size room. Nice little park/sitting are next to office. Breakfast was hot and good! Really nice young man that was working there. He kept everything full and cleaned up!

    This place was great, they were wonderful and professional and very accommodating to my dogs which is a big selling point. I highly recommend this place The breakfast was amazing. There is a nice little park for your dogs with dog bags for poop. a nice indoor pool too.

    « Good value accommodation near the university »

    Our room was comfortable, but being on the corner squeezed in by others where people were sitting outside making us feel a bit hemmed in. Luckily there was some seating outside in a separate area as the weather was very sunny. The motel was further out of town than we expected, making it impossible to walk into town in the evenings. However, very convenient for anyone visiting the university. We ended up eating at the cheap and cheerful IHop restaurant next door. The hot breakfast was quite good, shame about paper cups, plastic plates and cutlery in American motels, but I know this is ubiquitous. Alamosa is a quiet and sleepy place, although the main road the motel is on is quite busy.

    « Pleasant Place to stay »

    The most friendly staff. Excellent in every way. Breakfast was perfect.. Pool and hot tub were clean and a great size. Room was cleaned as requested. Staff was very attentive and caring at all times.. Reserve early.

    « Don't judge a book by its cover. »

    This best Western is obviously an older building. From the outside it looks a little worn but the rooms are freshly refurbished and are really well done. The bed was really really comfortable and as others have noted the breakfast was quite decent. The remodel in the rooms Is quite modern and for the price I can Certainly recommend.

    3
    « Clean, well-maintained lodging »

    This is an older property that I would describe as clean and well-maintained. It is well-located within the city. About a ten to fifteen walk into anywhere into the commercial area, a big plus if you don't want to move the car but walk to a recommended restaurant.

    5
    « Mini Vacay »

    We enjoyed our stay here at Best Western and look forward to coming back. The convenience of the hotel being so close to Adam State University made the commute to watch our son play a lot easier. Now with the cold weather is coming, getting to and from places quick is a must for us who are not used to the cold temperature.

    2
    « reservation »

    Beware..Best Western will make promises about the hotel, then send a receipt contrary to the oral agreement. Even though the discussion is recorded, the written receipt will differ. You will pay extra by booking through Best Western but the arrangement will be no more accurate than if you save by booking through Orbit, Travelocity or others.

    « Fantastic experience! »

    I spent three nights here while in town for ASU's Homecoming celebration. I was so pleased with the service, the room, and the property. Spotlessly clean, a full-on breakfast every morning, fresh cookies in the lobby upon arrival and check-in. I needed a ride from the airport after returning the rental car and they came right out and picked me up right on time. The driver offered to drop me off downtown and pick me up later when I finished lunch. The room was quiet, updated, and very clean with attentive service! I would highly recommend this hotel!

    This hotel is excellent in every respect. The staff, room size, amenities, and over all quality far exceeded normal expectations. It is conveniently located near many eating places and is near the University. It is highly recommended.

    « Quality accommodation in a town near the amazing sand dunes »

    Great accommodation in a small interesting town near the sand dunes national park. A very well maintained older quiet property. Excellent staff at check in & check out. Very well presented breakfast with good options. Well prepared list of dinner restaurant options & the nearby brew pub was excellent. We would most certainly stay here again if ever in this area.

    « Best Western Alamosa Colorado »

    Beds were too small for three large adults. We were given a room with double beds so it was too small when you have 3 adults in the room. For two adults the bed size would have been just fine. Request queen size beds prior to check in. We "assumed" that we would have a room with queen size beds.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    Thanks for a pleasant stay. Nice size room and clean. Breakfast was good. Really nice man that was working the breakfast area.The last night on a ten day trip so it was nice to end with a good hotel!!!

    « Very poor management; outdated rooms; noisy »

    My fiancé and I were traveling across country back home. We had broken down twice and had a horrible day, we checked into this hotel and the manager did not offer any deals and misguided me on the rate

    « Very pleasent stay. »

    The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable, and had great ammenities. The breakfast were very good. The hotel clerk was very good, personable, and when we had problems with the remote, he came to the room and changed out batteries for our remote. Other issues we had, we went to the pool room late and couldn't find light switchs (had a "moon lit" swim/hot tub). The bath tub had slow drain (due to all the sand from the dunes??), it was reported on way out so can't say how fast it was tended to. Overall great stay!

    « Alamosa CO »

    We have stayed here for three nights every two years for local business trip and love the facility, service and breakfast more than any other motel experience. Small park area in middle and nearby restaurants and brew pubs a nice addition.

    « High price service without the high price »

    Best Westerns have really up'd their game. They offer what the other hotels do for 2/3 of the price. I will be looking for the option to stay at Best Westerns in my business travels, to enjoy my stay and to save $$ in my budget!

    « Very friendly night staff »

    We stayed here last minute after deciding we were too tired to drive back to Colorado Springs. The ninth attendant was incredibly friendly and helpful, not only bringing an air mattress to our room, but inflating it for us as well. Breakfast was great, and included more options for someone who does not eat wheat then what I typically find at these type of breakfasts.

    5
    « Well kept and dog friendly »

    We come to visit land properties we have in the San Luis Valley and enjoy the best of S Colorado. When possible, our friendly and easy going golden retriever travels with us. Best Western Alamosa is a great choice for a clean, modernized and well kept property that accommodates our furry family member. Easy to recommend!

    Great place to stay. Rooms very nice and could park bikes right outside room door on ground floor. Food is walking distance from hotel, Free breakfast is great with lots of choices, Enclosed pool and hot tub was great after a day of riding,

    « GREAT hotel for the price »

    Don't get me wrong, this isn't a five star hotel along the lines of a Ritz Carlton, but when judged by its online description and its price, I give this Best Western five stars. Really friendly staff, nice rooms, extremely clean, quiet, safe, convenient parking in well-lit lot, good free-WiFi and super pet friendly! (There's a small fee, but worth it just for the dog exercise area.) And the cherry on top? Not only a real free breakfast, but in addition to the usual hot breakfast fare, they have PORK GREEN CHILI...and it's awesome! I'll definitely stay here again. This hotel is a great example of why I choose Best Western hotels when I'm on the road. They've really upped their game over the past few years.

    « typical roadside Best Western »

    The Best Western Alamosa Inn is a typical roadside hotel, like there are many Best Western hotels across the USA. The staff upon check-inn was friendly and welcoming. Although I showed the man behind the desk my Best Western Platinum membership card, I didn't get the normal welcoming package. But to be fair, I didn't ask for it either. My room (206) was on the first floor. There is no elevator, so bags have to be brought up over the stairs. There is a small pool with hot tub on side and also a number of vending machines. The room was quite dark and a bit old. Beds were to soft for my preference and the mattress on the bed closest to the window was a bit lumpy. Time to replace that one. The room was clean enough. There was a small bathroom with a shower. The shower curtain was dirty and should have been replaced a long time ago. Everything in the room was in working condition. There is poor insulation and a number of bikers were staying in the hotel. At seven in the morning I woke up, because some of them let their motors run for at least ten minutes before departing just below my room. In the morning a free hot breakfast was provided that gives you a good start for the day. There is free WiFi as well and it was fast enough for mailing. This hotel, like the others in Alamosa is an excellent base for exploring the area and driving to the Great Sand Dunes (40 minutes drive). Overall, this hotel services well for a one or two night stay. It isn't luxurious, but that is not what you are paying for.

    « Best westerns are always wonderful »

    Alamosa is an old western town with charm but you don't want an old room. This was a modern clean and comfortable room easy to find on the main road. Staff was extremely friendly and the breakfast was good

    « Avoid If You Have Other Options »

    I despise hotels that do not tell you that there is no elevator and then give you the second floor rooms. We came here after a long day of driving only to find out that my son and I had to hump 5 people's luggage up the winding, outdoor stair case to get to our rooms. Ok, they did have the jacuzzi and pool open until midnight. Thank God I went with our group as there was not secure access to the pool area. The door was open to anyone and everyone. It was 11pm and as we were in the pool, a man just walked in on us. Never said a word. Just walked in and obviously did not come to swim. After a few minutes, I realized he must be with the hotel, but he never identified himself nor was he wearing hotel staff clothing. Had my young ones been here unattended with this man, I would have been very, very upset. I have never stayed at a BW without secure access to the pool! There is a nice picnic and open space available outside of the main office. Unfortunately some accountant must have trimmed the trees instead of an arborist. Nothing worse than hat racked, mature trees. We are loyal to BW, and when they do not have the courtesy of offering us better rooms as Rewards members, it ticks me off. On the positive side, the beds were comfortable and at least the TV offered more than 10 stations. Not sure if we would come back to this location unless it was our only option.

    Recently stayed here with my family of 5. We got a loft room and it was HUGE. It even jad two bathrooms, which we loved. The room and facilities were clean and staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were comfy, breakfast was good, and my kids loved the indoor pool.

    « Nice, clean, roomy and updated rooms »

    The rooms are very nice, clean, roomy and updated. Don't let the outward motel appearance of the property turn you off as the rooms are very nice. Less than 30 min drive from Great Sand Dunes National Park. The breakfast is also good with fresh tasting scrambled eggs/home fries/toast/yogurt, cereals, etc. vs. other places with free breakfast that offer a recently heated square pre-packaged frozen egg patties. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    « Quality just wasn't their »

    We were in town for a college visit and the location and the good reviews the hotel had rcvd was my primary purpose for booking this . However no one mentioned the noise from the Main Street and the train tracks nearby . Plus the bed was not comfortable. The room was dated and the heating/cooling unit did not cycle on off . It was either on or off and the room would get too cold or too hot if we had to turn it off

    « Another great BW »

    BW has really improved over the the last several years. This property is the old drive up style with no interior corridors if that is a problem for you, but it has bee updated and it's quite nice. Sleep quality was good, breakfast is typical BW which exceeds other comparable chains, and the staff was excellent. It has a separate indoor pool building with a new tile hot tub room - very nice all around. European style dispensers in the vanity and shower. The stay Herr was a treat for my discriminating family.

    « Good overnight stay »

    I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. I believe management has changed since my last stay, but staff and accommodations were good, convenient, and clean. However, a/c-heater unit rattled so loud every time it kicked on, it woke me. Also, pets used to be free. They now charge a $20 fee -- steep, in my travel experience.

    « Highly recommend staying here when in Alamosa »

    « First Time Staying Here »

    This was our first time staying here. They would not let us park our motorcycles under cover even though it rained, They did give us towels in the morning to dry them off. the breakfast room is small so we had to eat in our room. If we find our way back to the area, we will stay here again.

    « Good clean stay, but need to replace some mattresses! »

    Our stay here was a good experience, the motel itself was good and clean--seemed well-maintained overall. Our beds were way too hard and worn out--my husband's mattress was so worn on the 1 side where you climb onto the bed that he had to sleep on the middle closer to the opposite side so he didn't automatically roll to the floor. BUT the Customer Service here is awesome, in our experience. Great staff. The pool is shallow--4 ft is deepest--and was way too warm for us in late July--don't need heated pool in late July and August most of the time! If you book room here, ask to be placed far away from highway 160 as you can. There is road noise during the night if you are closer to the road.

    « Good stay! »

    We stayed here for a trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and other sights in the area. The hotel was nice and the price was right. We enjoyed the pool after a long day of hiking. Breakfast was typical to this type of hotel.

    « Very Nice Motel, Funny Billing? »

    Overall the motel was very nice. The room was clean and smelled fresh. It was nicely sized and the beds were very comfortable. We were close to the street and noise was not a problem. It is a two level building without an elevator, so ask for lower level if stairs are a problem. The included breakfast was just fine. There was a good selection of hot and cold foods. The only problem I had was with my credit card billing. The motel put a $100 hold on my card, besides my room charge. They said this was for pet or smoking damage. I've never had a motel do this before. Then they tried to tell me my bank did this automatically, but my bank said they do not do this unless the vender requests it. The hold came off eventually but I did not like how they handled the issue.

    « The motel posing as a hotel »

    300 mile drive there. 15-20 min wait for the ONE CLERK who was waiting on 2 other check ins, responding to complaint from an existing costumer as to the week long broken washing machine (I took my dirty cloths 2000 miles home to wash), and answering phone calls during costumer transactions including my own. I tried to cancel my stay after electing to "camp it"- was told by the clerk: 1) "24 hour cancel policy" 2) "no manager on site- he has to allow this as you reserved through AAA and he has to decide if he wants to give them their commission or not or allow you to cancel". I pointed out: 1) if manager doesn't arrive until the next day, as I was informed then when does the 24 hours start?, 2) it is not my problem who gets their "cut" as the $130 bill comes to me, 3) my plan to contact AAA and inquire as to the truth of this claim as if true then beneficial NOT to use AAA and relinquishing MY control of canceling a reservation that I am unhappy with. Clerk only repeated same "I only work here, you have to talk to manager TOMORROW". Tomorrow?! $130 a night?! One clerk? Broken washing machine? "Ghetto" location? Inability to address a costumer issue until next day? Coffee maker with no drawer for coffee to go in? "Fitness center" that consisted of a bike and a bow flex? Where DOES the $ go? Clearly not to the site, the costumer, or likely the best people there- the cleaning ladies...

    « Perfect for an overnight stay »

    This hotel is perfect for an overnight stay. The rooms were clean and the bed was firm and comfortable. The front desk clerk was kind and helpful. Breakfast was fine. It was easy to unload and load our vehicle because our room was on the ground level. The pool was the warmest pool I have ever swum in but oh well. I would recommend this hotel especially for an overnight stay.

    « Quiet and comfortable »

    The upgrades are a huge improvement. Mattresses were a bit lumpy/uncomfortable for my preference, but served their purpose. Overall, I had a quiet and comfortable stay...which is why this is the only hotel I stay in when visiting Alamosa.

    Best Westerns are different everywhere you go. Some good, some bad...this one is a good one! The rooms were relatively large and up to date. One thing is one of the beds is right up against the AC unit which means that person will either freeze or burn up. Other than that, great rooms. Breakfast was fabulous. Eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles....could not have asked for more!

    Great hotel for overnight stay while visiting Sand Dunes. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was upgraded, clean, and comfortable. Great value for the money. Would stay here again. Breakfast was good but restaurant choices in Alamosa are very, very limited. Eat dinner before you arrive!

    « great hotel. clean. neat. loved the pool »

    We wanted a place close to town, but close enough to the sand dunes and gator farm and come local hiking trails. The hotel was clean and neat. Everything worked well. The staff were great. They all put up with my 3 kids. They helped give local tips of how to get around and better enjoy our planned activities. Overall the value of this hotel is tremendous.

    We were so pleasantly surprised how nice this motel was. They allow dogs. The room is laid out nicely and is renovated. My dog loved the green grass out front. Nice neighborhood with Adam's State and a hospital near to w as long around. Great hot breakfast either scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, etc.

    « Good deal »

    Not always a fan of Best Westerns. They are updated motels built in a horseshoe and facing the highway. This usually means convenient but somewhat noisy. This one is a bit noisy but it has been very nicely renovated with nice grounds, a lovely dining area, really nice staff and great rooms. Here are a few minor negatives. There is some highway noise even though the doors are provided with sealed insulation. This place is popular with truckers who run their refrigeration units all night long, leaving early in the morning. The shampoo, conditioner and soap are in dispensers but are of good quality. Overall, one of the better Best Westerns we have used

    « Needs to be updated; cost was pretty high, but at least we got a room! »

    « Great hotel, very honest staff »

    We stayed at this hotel on our way to Durango on 4/3/17. Everything about the room was perfect, but what really stood out was the staff. The next morning we were in a hurry to beat a snowstorm that was coming through and loaded up the car in a hurry. We went to breakfast and I left my beauty products in the room. We took off and left them there, and as I'm sure some of you know, those things are not inexpensive to replace. I had left over $300 worth of product just sitting on the counter! It took a couple of days before we could locate the proper housekeeping staff to inquire about them, but they had them and shipped them home to me, safe and sound. I can't thank them enough!!! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend them to my friends.

    This hotel was perfectly located to Adams State University. With a small town feel this hotel has everything. Free internet capable of movie streaming. The best about this hotel was the staff working hotel.

It has continued to go downhill over the years so we decided to try someplace new. We loved it! The pool was clean and warm. The hot tub was amazing! After swimming we went to the lobby and got yummy hot cocoa and chocolate chip cookies. The breakfast was hot and fresh. And checkout was super easy. We will be staying here again.

    « Could be better. »

    I generally like Best Westerns, but this one I feel is not on the same level as the others. First, our toilet ran constantly. Even though it wasn't loud, I'm a light sleeper and it woke me up. Secondly, the workout area was lacking as well. The Bowflex that was there has a broken seat and was just balancing against the machine. It was not secured and the accessories were laying on the ground around the machine. Other machines had small defects as well, such as the bike had a missing foot strap. It was a clean room, the breakfast is what I've seen at other Best Westerns, but overall, I feel like I could have gotten the same thing at less expensive hotel in the area.

    Check in was muddled. We were a group tour and the allocation of rooms became confused and we walked into someone else room. Finally sorted we were ok, room was large and comfortable. Shower good and plenty of towels. Breakfast was a nightmare. There was not enough seating and people were desperately trying to find a seat. The breakfast was fairly average, usual complimentary fare, scrambled eggs, toast, waffles and some fruit and cereals. There were two places to eat nearby at night but the choice was fast food so fairly limited. No lifts if you have heavy luggage.

    This was a great find in Alamosa. I was concerned with a motel style property it would be loud but it wasn't. It was very quiet. Very nice length (20 yards) pool in a separate building. Someone had taken pains to put a nice area in the middle of the parking lot for picnic tables, grills and a nice flower garden with a fountain. Very nice touch.

There was a pleasant outdoor area with grass, a fountain and benches. Also they had a grill and picnic tables for outdoor cooking/eating.

    « Meets basic needs for a stay close to Great Sand Dunes - warm pool »

    Nice management, clean rooms, and it will meet your basic needs as a stopover/overnight stay for the Great Sand Dunes. Pro's: - Really warm pool - Nice staff - Proximity to the Great Sand Dunes - Decent breakfast Cons: - Close to a major highway/through way - despite the fact our room was further back (building 2), you could still hear the cars/trucks whizzing by - hot tub was broken - coffee maker was not working properly so the coffee was lukewarm at best BUT the staff was trying their best to keep it hot by making new batches of coffee more frequently - Pool is an entirely different building so you have to go outside (not much fun when you're wet & cold) - Double beds rather than queen beds - Rooms were small compared to other Best Western hotels

    « best place around »

    It's close(ish) to the Great Sand Dune and let's face it Alamosa is more prepossessing than most of the nearby towns. This was one of the better motels we stayed in. We had a good feel just by driving into the car park. it looked like they cared. Pool excellent, breakfast good by motel standards,service friendly efficient. Room pretty spacious for a family. Also it's next door to the IHOP for dinner

    « Basic, but clean and close to the sightseeing we wanted to do »

    Very efficient check-in service and nice management. Clean, but definitely a dated motel. The room was basic, but with two double beds (rather than two queen size beds). It worked out fine though. The only complaint was that our room was on the lower level, and even though we were just across from the little park and the office, we had guys two doors down who set out a cooler of beer in the parking space next to their truck - right outside the window of our room - and drank and partied loudly for hours on our first night there. They were friendly enough, but we'd flown into Denver that day and then drove over 3 hours to get there. We were really tired and had a full day planned starting early the next morning. Hated complaining about them, but when it got to be midnight and the volume of their 'party' was only increasing, we called the desk. We were told that they could pretty much stay out there all night if they wanted to, but to the Inn's credit, they contacted the guys right away and asked them to please be quiet. Not long after that, all was quiet. This place is a good option if you're planning to visit the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Zapata Falls. Some cute restaurants and the usual chain store eateries nearby.

    « Clean, comfy beds and friendly staff »

    My family and I were very pleased with our stay for 3 nights as we visited the National Sand Dunes park and other area attractions. This is a "motel" and not a "hotel" as the doors open to the parking lot. We had a room on the 2nd floor away from the highway. The walls were very well insulated as I did not hear any of our neighbors and the hotel was fully booked while we were there. The room was very, very clean. The beds and pillows were very comfy too. The swimming pool and hot tub area was very clean. The only down side to our stay was the shower head in the bathroom was a little weird and the water pressure was not the strongest. The free breakfast was great, it included , waffles, eggs, sausage. I got a smokin' deal for $85 a night as I booked really early, so I was very happy with our stay and the property. I would definitely stay again and I would recommend this to anyone.

    We stayed one night here so we could visit the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The staff are friendly, the beds are soft & the room was clean. The rooms are not very sound proof though; we enjoyed the sound of the elephant steps up stairs - not! We had a room right on the road which was a little noisy also. Alamosa the town is not great. There are no health food options so we ate from Safeway. If you are passing through here though, this place is fine. I'd say a little pricey for what it is but there are not many options in Alamosa.

    This Best Western is perfect if you have kids or even if you are traveling alone or with another adult. The beds are clean and are comfortable. The pool area is perfect because it is quite large, kids and adults can relax and have fun there. There is a fast food restaurant and a popular chain that stays open 24 hrs just next door. The best thing was the friendly and helpful staff, they the experience even better. Will definitely be back at this Best Western location in the future.

    We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, with the upper bedroom in a loft. Upon entering, a long open staircase led upstairs. There was a bedroom and bathroom up in the loft, and a half wall that was open to the lower area. The lower area had a sofa bed, two living room style chairs, bar area with bar stools, refrigerator & sink, and a second bathroom. It was comfortable and roomy, but a little odd with the open loft instead of the upper area being an enclosed bedroom. Nice little breakfast in the morning, with both hot and cold foods.

    « Avoid- Overpriced and below standard »

    My wife and I are in from overseas to visit my family in the southwest. After booking a Best Western in Prescott during the 4th weekend we decided to stay with this chain to use their rewards program. At the first booking we apparently got this deal book two separate room nights and get a 50 dollar discount. We are on our 3rd-4th booking and no sign of this but more terms and conditions. So in transit, we rolled into Alamaso Colorado. Tired and not ready to do the drive around town to check rates we booked into the BW Alamaso. US145 in a little town with nothing happening. More expensive than offpeak Prescott US85 and slightly less than Durango (Cool Town) US160. Apologies, but Alamosa is not a tourist town, it is a passing through town. Ok we made the decision, but look online easy USD40-50 less (no cell signal on global partner plan- thanks M1) . What is this the best hotel in town and / or BW you scalp your loyalty members? Wall mount soap pump not individual packets like all others, poor water pressure, stairs cracking through wall in bathroom, spare hairs in the shower and we are less than impressed, but the grass is green in the yard and it seems you can BBQ, Take a chance?

    When I booked two nights here, I was expecting to be in a hotel as it was a Best Western, but it was a motel with each room accessed from outside. Breakfast was in the lobby and so required a walk in the open but the good weather meant that wasn't a problem. Breakfast was so busy that we had to eat outside the first morning. There was a good selection at breakfast and the food was fine. Particularly liked the small cinnamon waffles. The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable.

    « Excellent Value »

    There's an earlier review, "Good Night's Sleep," that perfectly encapsulates my thoughts. There is nothing not to like about this property. Further to that review, the parking in front of your door is ample, and the spaces are wide (important if you are in a rental vehicle). Also, here is something you rarely read: The motel is very close to the "downtown" with a Safeway and restaurants just a stone's throw away. Convenience, quality, and price -- it's a winner.

    « Not that great so far »

    So far the staff has been friendly and nice. The lobby is nice and the wifi works well. My room is really clean. The fridge is not very cold at all turned all the way up. Every time I turn my AC off it is immediately hot in the room and if I close my curtains the AC blows right into them and not into the room. And I can hear everything that the family in the room next door is doing (and saying) which is weird. Some of the furnishings and the carpet appear to have been updated not that long ago and the bed is comfy. The popcorn ceiling is very popcorny. I got a good rate on this room and for the price it is just about right.

    « A decent stay for anyone visiting the San Luis Valley »

    The property and rooms were very clean and the staff attentive and friendly. The breakfast was on par with others. It should be noted that rooms open to the outdoors, not a hallway, but we were to the rear of the property so it was quiet enough. Be forewarned - I was very disappointed that I made my reservation through Best Western's central booking and made it very clear that we'd be travelling with a dog - I even have this documented. But regardless, the hotel had no record of this and we had to be moved to a pet friendly room and were charged an additional "upgrade fee." It should be noted that, in spite of being put into a pet friendly room, the room did not reflect the fact that there had been pets there before us and was clean and clean-smelling. There are many good restaurants in town and the area is accessible easily to all of the attractions of the valley.

Our room was near the highway end of the hotel and they was some traffic noise, but that's unavoidable. Overall, a good experience and I would definitely stay again.

    « Very nice motel »

    Surrounded by beautiful mountain views this motel was very nice for the value. The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Being an avid swimmer, I was especially impressed with the pool andhoit tub. It was clean, attractive and the temperature was perfect.

    « Clean and Pet Friendly »

    I enjoyed a quick stay while visiting some properties we have in the San Luis Valley and Sangre de Cristos. One of the better in the area that had pet-friendly rooms to accommodate my golden retriever companion! Staff were kind and informative. Only real complaint is that hours for pool/hottub were too limited to use (closed 9pm-10am). Would have enjoyed after a long drive. Breakfast was good and morning manager was friendly and engaging. Recommend as one of the better, well-kept properties that are pet-friendly in the area.

    « Greedy and Unreasonable »

    As a person I understand the need for rules, without them society would run amok. Chaos would rule the day. However there are times when rules and in particular their inflexibility serve no purpose except to shortchange a consumer. I booked my room through Rocketmiles earlier in the week when the weather forecast for Alamosa called for cloudiness. In the days since the forecast there and in Denver where I live dramatically changed with some calls for four feet of snow. Clearly my weekend trip to celebrate my birthday no less, had to be postponed. Every hotel agreed and without incident moved my reservation to the following week, all but one: the Best Western Alamosa. While the staff there was friendly in empathizing with me it appears the owner rules with an iron fist and zero flexibility. Rocketmiles had no issue with me moving the reservation and understood why this dramatic change in circumstance would change my decision, Best Western's corporate line also had no issue and tried to get the hotel to change their decision but all requests fell upon deaf ears. As an MBA student there is an important lesson here about keeping customers, the Best Western Alamosa won't have my business and hopefully via this review won't have yours either but they decided it was more worthwhile to take my $99 and give me nothing in return than doing the understandable thing and just letting me move my reservation to the week following as did the other reservations effected by this sudden snow storm. Even having the audacity to e-mail me stating their hands were tied but they would be happy to sell me a room for the following weekend. Thank you Rocketmiles and thank you Best Western corporate but I would under no circumstances suggest giving money to this inflexible owner. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Alamosa and was lovely and looked far nicer than the near-empty Best Western that could not accommodate a shift when weather closed roads throughout the area.

    « Never mind the guests, we're renovating! »

    This BW is a motel rather than hotel, and felt a little more basic than the others we used on our road trip. Pluses: typically for old style motels the rooms are massive. Tub with shower over, not just a cubicle. Comfortable beds, tho with sheets and blanket rather than duvets. Quiet and dark overnight. Minuses: checkin lady efficient but not exactly welcoming. And here's the biggie: the top floor of the block we were in was being renovated. As we arrived (7ish) the workmen were just packing up to leave. But at 7.30 the following day they were back and talking loudly outside our window, and by 8.30 they were banging with a lumphammer and using what sounded like an angle grinder directly above our heads. As it happened I was up anyway, but plenty of others weren't.. given that checkout is 11am and some folks arrive late, that seems totally out of order to me - they shouldn't rent any rooms in that block, OR keep the work to the middle of the day. I did mention this to the chap on checkout...he laughed and said "yeah gotta get the work done". Seems to me that says a bit about their customer care ethos!

    « Very good value, decent location, and staff was friendly »

    This hotel was a last minute booking more or less as I was taking a short road trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. I arrived for check-in and was surprised that they didn't ask for any sort of ?deposit? for incidentals which is always nice (I don't always have hundreds of dollars of expendable cash when checking in to a hotel). The lady that checked me in was friendly, but she went through a million things very quickly when giving me my card which I thought was unnecessary. The room was very clean, good size, and comfortable. My room included breakfast, which was your standard Midwest breakfast with sausage, eggs, bacon, toast, etc. and tasted deliciously. Overall, I was pleased with my stay, no hassle and no problems.

    « We had such a great visit! »

    My family and I went to alamosa to visit the sand dunes and alligator farm for a quick spring break/Easter get away. We stayed at the Beat Western. The staff was amazing! I have lots of food allergies and Andy went above and beyond to help me have something I could eat in the morning. It was very kind. Everyone was very helpful and the hotel was very clean and comfortable.

    The Best Western Alamosa Inn is a best kept secret. This is my 4th stay in the last year, and each time the service, amenities, and staff have been exceptional. I was delayed one day returning to Pasosa Springs due to an unexpected spring snow storm, and they were understanding and considerate of my delay. A great place to STAY!!!

    I have stayed at a few hotels in Alamosa and this is the best one I have found for the combination of price and comfort. It was clean, the people were nice, and I didn't have any issues with the room. I will be staying here again.

    « Nothing fancy but clean and great pool! »

    The title says it all. Our double queen room is plenty roomy for my husband and our two young kiddos. The pool house with hot tub was a great treat- we swam twice each day and watched the snow fall outside. Standard continental breakfast that was just fine for us. The employees- from Dennis at check-in to the maintenance fellow who opened the pool today- have been beyond helpful and pleasant.

    « Returning home »

    This is a very pleasant hotel. The pool/hot tub was a welcome respite after a long day. Bed was very comfortable, although a little tall. Staff was pleasant and helpful for the most part. Very willing to accommodate a last minute change to ground floor after we forgot to request it. Would definitely stay here again!

    « Less than desirable »

    I booked over the phone and was told I had 2 queen beds. When we got to the hotel, I was told 2 full beds. I went and looked at my receipt and it said full, but I was TOLD queen. I was also hit with a pet fee that I was not told about over the phone of $15 a night. Also, the front desk woman who checked us in was rude. She was clearly sick and said she just wanted to sleep and coughed all over everything, including my key cards. I went in later that night for a tea and she was in the lobby on the couch watching television. The next night I went for a tea again and she was on a personal call that lasted the entire time I was there. VERY unprofessional. The room was clean and the breakfast was good so no complaints there. Still, it was a less than average experience and I left disappointed.

    « Great location, nice and clean, but don't plan to work on internet »

    This BW is a short drive from the Sand Dunes National Park and Monte Vista NWR. The town of Alamosa has several nice restaurants with good food at very reasonable prices. The breakfast buffet at BW is ample and good. The only proble is, there's no hope of doing any work on the internet at night. Speed is reasonable at 1 in the afternoon, when no one else is there, but at 8 p.m., it's hopeless. I had one thing that I "had to" do, which normally takes under 5-minutes and it took 30-minutes with including a time-out or two. Luckily I was here for pleasure, so, other than that one thing, I mostly stayed off the internet.

    « Friendly staff »

    For an older hotel in a small town I was impressed. The cost was very reasonable and I didn't really expect much. The room was much larger than expected although I would rate cleanliness as only average. A few things that made this a good stay was the hotel was very quiet, breakfast was included and the staff was very friendly. They even opened the pool an hour early so our kids could swim before check out. If you are looking for a simple place to stay for the night away from the downtown area this is a good choice.

    « A huge disappointment... »

    I took several students here as a teacher for a trip, and it was an absolutely terrible experience. I made the reservations months ahead of time and called to confirm them the week before, only to find upon check-in that the reservations weren't right. The staff was extremely rude, and the breakfast was terrible. There was a sports team that stayed above use that was loud all night. The doors to the outside have terrible locks and are paper thin, so safety and noise are both issues. The rooms were very dated and not well maintained. The pool is filthy and disgusting. Overall, I was extremely disappointed in this hotel stay, I didn't know that a Best Western could be so low-grade and the staff could be so rude.

    « Great Place That I Came Back Again »

    After a great day exploring the Sand Dunes National Park, I decided to stay at the Best Western Alamosa Inn. The staff who worked the front desk in the morning were wonderful - great customer service! Always appreciate staff who is willing to allow guests print their plane tickets before their departures. The breakfast was better than I expected; anytime a hotel offers biscuits, they get two thumbs up for me. The hotel is off the main road so it can get a bit noisy for those light sleepers, but I was so exhausted from all the hiking that I slept right thru it. The next morning I drove out to the Mesa Verde National Park and decided to return back to the Best Western in Alamosa since they impressed me the first time. The town has several shops and food options near the hotel, and with the rooms having a microwave that was an added bonus. Since it was a January visit, it was less crowded than usual so that made my visit even more pleasant. I look forward to returning back to Alamosa and staying at this hotel.

    The hotel was clean, staff friendly & helpful. Breakfast was typical for this type of hotel - scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon or sausage, pancakes, yogurt, apple or orange, toast, cearel, milk, juice, coffee. I would have liked more tea choices. overall it was good & a very good price.

    « Quiet and clean »

    Stayed 3 nights. The room was clean with updated furnishings. Dispensers for soap, body wash, shampoo and lotion. Coffee pot in room, although I didn't use it because it has a lot of scale deposit. Fridge and microwave in room. Only negative, the bathroom needs a heater. Breakfast is the usual fare, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, hashbrowns, waffles and white gravy. Cereals, bread, yogurt and fresh fruit also available. Friendly staff.

    « Very friendly toward dogs! »

    My wife, Aussie Shepard and I stayed here for one night whilst traveling from Santa Fe to Grand Junction for a Thanksgiving celebration with friends. We found the room to be clean, the king bed mattress to be quite comfortable and plenty of hot water in the shower and sink. Best of all there's a small park w/manicured lawn to walk one's dog, and a poop bag station and refuse barrel. What more could one traveling w/ a dog ask? And the pet fee is very reasonable. Pet-friendly rooms are all on the first floor and like old-style motels, the room door opens to the outdoors. Everything a dog owner wants! Oh yes, the included breakfast had all the standard fare, including delicious sausage patties - one of which became a dog treat! We recommend this motel especially for those travelers with a dog.

    I had a nice stay at this hotel. I was in town on business and needed a hotel that allowed dogs. The bed was comfortable. I was happy that my room had a fridge and microwave. That way I could bring leftovers back for lunch the next day. The shower was a little weird, spraying all over the place.

    « A cut above. »

    - We did not hold our room with a credit card and were given a courtesy call to advise we should call if we thought we'd be late. - We arrived at 1:00 pm, our room not ready but we were early. When we returned our room was ready and we had a great location, room 223, top floor far from the elevators. - The room was a suite with two TVs, king-sized bed and a separate living room with a foldout bed. Our king had soft or hard pillows. - Breakfast area had ample room for all (the hotel was filled with football players from New Mexico playing the local college.) - Hotel location on the main drag, plenty of restaurants. - Not much in Alamos other than near the Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, our reason for our visit. - Only mark down was slow internet, maybe due to our room at the end of the wing.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Our rooms 237 and 228 were bright and apparently recently renovated. They were very clean. The lobby breakfast area was modern and complete.

    This is a wonderful place to see, with wildlife refuges nearby as well as Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park and Preserve. We look forward to returning for a longer stay next time. Alamosa is a small town but we found a nice Italian restaurant that was also reasonable. This is probably a wonderful location in any season.

    The room appeared to be clean; however we found a swirling wad of hair stuck to the shower wall. The blow dryer hardly blew at all, and it took forever to dry my hair. The breakfast bar was okay. The scrambled eggs tasted like they were freshly prepared. We stopped early last night to watch the play off game between the Cubs and the Pirates rather than driving on toward our next detination. The cable went out during the second inning and did not come back on until this morning. We heard that it was great game.

    Room clean and bed comfortable. Had small refrigerator and microwave. Did not like that small square pillows they had. Hot breakfast was good and eating area was clean. A lot of restaurants nearby. KFC just next door. Did not use indoor pool. Also they had a nice little park with picnic tables so if the weather is nice you could eat there if you like. Definitely a good choice. No elevator.

    « It went down hill rapidly »

    I had worries about this hotel before we left the UK for our holidays. We used previous Trip Advisor reviews to try and get a decent room location. I sent a request before we left via the ?hotel's' contact us form off their web site and a reply was received acknowledging our message sent by Bina. Things looked good. We arrived early on the Sunday and thought we'd pop in to see if we could drop our things off. Andy was on reception and he was extremely polite and cheerful. Sadly he could not let us go to the room, it needed to be inspected. No problems for us, we went off to see Zapata Falls and then locate Hideaway Steak House. There was confusion as to whether the steak house was open on a Sunday. We went back to the Inn after visiting the falls, Andy had left and the ?lady' on reception gave us the room key. Despite having previously requested a room to the rear, away from the road, we couldn't have been placed much closer to the road in room 105. It was obvious the room had recently been decorated, with excess paint around the window frame. There was a massive gap around the door and we could clearly hear the traffic noise. Still suffering with jet lag, we dreaded the night ahead. I went back to reception to ask if there were any notes on the booking as I had requested a quiet room 2 weeks previously. I couldn't make out her name because her hair covered her name badge. We were told by her that our travel company was only allocated so many rooms. It was pointless talking any more to the ?lady', she obviously could not care less. I asked about places to eat on a Sunday, (because of suspecting Hideaway may be closed), she simply gave me a printed sheet, which among other places showed the Hideaway. So we went back to the Hideaway. After making more enquiries in the attached bar to Hideaway, we were told it was closed. We tried another place on the list... closed. In the end we found Cavillo's to be open. After eating, we went back to the sand dune area to get some photos as the sun set. We then returned to our room. I thought it best to advise the staff that the list they gave out was not accurate, on entering I couldn't see anyone, suddenly the same person who had given us the room key and list's head popped up from behind the counter, it looked as though she had been asleep. I told her that some of the places on her list were closed and it may be wise to update the information they gave out. She rummaged around and said she could not find any of the sheets and that they had run out, she said she would have to print off some more. I told her we had spent the best part of an hour trying to find somewhere to eat. Honestly, this person did not have a care in the world. She was as much use as an ash tray on a motorcycle. It goes without saying, we had a terrible nights sleep. The road noise was terrible, even on a Sunday night. Workers who were staying there in other rooms started moving their vehicles at about 05.30. We got up and ate a small breakfast and left as quickly as we could. We spoke with the receptionist as we left to express our disappointment. That was a waste of our breath. The breakfast was ?free' and it was something to put in our stomachs, but nothing else to write about. The room appeared clean, but it had obviously been recently painted by an untrained monkey. Soap and shampoo dispensed from units attached to the wall. Positive things are that you will get a reply to contact, (but don't expect them to live up to anything they may say) and there is a garage close by so you can fill up with fuel to help make a good get away. To precis, terrible customer service and don't stay here or in Alamosa unless you have to, especially on a Sunday. VERY basic.

    « We thought this was great. »

    Decided to spend the night and hit the sand dunes the next morning. Staff was very pleasant and was very accommodating when we asked to see the room first. The room - large, comfortable and clean. Best night sleep I had the whole trip. Didn't get to try the pool but it did look inviting. Did sit outside in the little courtyard area - very nice. Breakfast was more than I could ask for. Will plan on staying there again on our next trip to the sand dunes.
