Best Western Plus Castle Rock

Wednesday, June 1, 2016
This Best Western Plus was definitely a step up from the last hotel we stayed in, but definitely not the best we've seen. It was a bit dated, the first room they put us in wreaked of animals, but they quickly switched us to the second floor.. where no pets had been. You could tell this establishment didn't have all the bells and whistles like the Best Westerns we'd seen before, but all in all I couldn't complain. We stayed in Castle Rock, Colorado and it was just under 30 minutes away from the heart of downtown Denver. The hotel was literally seconds away from an IHOP, delivery services were available, and the views were breathtaking. I haven't seen beautiful views like that, aside from Washington. Even still, it was different. Washington has more of a green tree, Mt. Rainier type of background. Colorado was full of green hills, mountain ranges, and beautiful sunrises. But, that is not what this post is about. 

We rarely spent much time in the hotel because we were out exploring Denver. Overall, it served its purpose. I especially love that these Best Western establishments have laundry facilities. Being that we were on the road, I was always able to do a load of laundry for my entire family. I especially loved that the laundry facilities were on the second floor, close to our room. You had to use your room key to gain entry to the laundry room, which was reassuring just in case wanderers decided to enter the hotel. They did have the most ridiculous prices for the washing machine and dryer at this hotel. Almost 2 dollars per load for the washer and an additional 2 dollars for the dryer. 

The staff was extremely nice though. They never charged us for a single beverage from their store... although they should have since they were marked for sale. Customer service was definitely not an issue here. Our stay was nice, but I doubt we'd stay here again when we visit Denver. Simply because we'd like to be closer to the city or North of Denver.
