Able to accommodate a one-night stay (in late Oct) at the last minute as we were passing through town (after coming over Independence Pass) and getting late in the day. Good bed, decent room, nice staff, decent breakfast with several options. Probably best chain motel available to use in Buena Vista, CO. Lots of construction going on in the main...

We were happy to accommodate you at the last minute. Thanks for stopping and staying with us. Roadwork should be complete by the next time you stay if you choose to stay with us again in the future; we hope you do!

Very personable, professional and attentive staff. The hotel location was good for hiking, hot springs, shops and a couple good restaurants. The adjacent shop was filled with unique gift items. Breakfast was a nice variety and the rooms were comfortable and clean.

This hotel is located on a busy road with only a parking lot separating the building and the road. We asked for a room on the back when we checked in at 4 pm. The clerk told us they were fully booked, and no rooms were available on the back. He added that we should have requested a room on...

Hello, We've emailed you to further regard your comments, and we believe that they have been addressed. Our hotel does fill up quickly, as it is still tourist season in our area. We are always happy to accommodate special room requests; however, this can sometimes only be done with prior notification due to the logistics of switching around rooms/reservations. Thanks...

This is the s\second time I have been at this Best Western in two months and both times was immensely satisfied: Friendly staff, clean well appointed rooms, very nice breakfast, and nice pool. It is a long stretch sometimes on the roads in the mountains, and this hotel is certainly a bright spot.

We decided at the last minute on a one day trip to Buena Vista for our anniversary. We looked at some of the b&bs, but decided on the Vista Inn. Good place to stay.

Buena Vista is a well-kept secret. We were travelling from Durango to Denver and I basically stuck a pin in the map to find a place to break the journey half way. How lucky I was! Buena Vista is a beautiful little town and the Best Western Vista Inn turned out to be way above my expectations. Best Westerns can...

This is a fine Best Western hotel; clean rooms, comfortable beds, quiet, and a delicious, wide variety of breakfast items. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our children tried out the pool, which they found to be a good size, bigger than most other hotel pools. We did not have a chance to use the facilities in the fitness...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night in a ground floor level room. The room was nice, clean, and well appointed. The beds were comfortable.

We like that comparison you made about our breakfast being at or above our competitors- thanks! Regarding the key cards, this is just where the technology is at right now, and ours are actually far less touchy than some other hotels'. We hope you visit Buena Vista again soon- we'd love to have you back!

We stayed here one week ago. There are a lot of good things to say about this place. The beautiful view, the overall comfort of the room and great towels. However, maybe because we booked through hotels.com, we were given a room on the second floor at the back (no elevator) and, though the bed seemed comfortable, the roughest sheets...
