After a rough few nights of traveling, the Dinosaur Inn was a much welcomed experience! It was really clean and I got there in time to enjoy a few minutes in the pool. Even though the hotel is on the main road, the rooms are tucked back from the hwy and it was really quiet and relaxing. The room itself was spacious and the beds were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast the next day was pretty decent and perfect for our trip back on the road. I definitely recommend!

Clean oversized rooms. Location is great for a base to day trip to Dinosaur National park Clean- free breakfast in the am :)

Our room was clean, quiet, the location of the property easy to find, convenient to some dining options. We were very pleased over all with the facility, definitely recommend considering it!

Very high quality for a non-chain motel.

Exceptional property. Creative on how they felt with COVID. Pool was great. location excellent.

I liked the proximity to the pool and the spaciousness of the room

the shower pressure fluctuated wildly.

BRING YOUR OWN PILLOW! For some reason the bed pillows are a super tiny, 1x1 size. Was not the easiest to sleep on. That being said, staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. Other than the pillow situation, would stay here again. Left early before breakfast was served but it looked like it had potential.

Great staff

Nice location, well-run hotel. But their wifi signal is rather weak.

Updated rooms. Very clean and stocked with lots of items. Plugs available all over the room. Great pizza place right next door. Very good staff.

It was clearly an older travelers motel but it was fixed up nicely and in excellent shape. Very nostalgic. We enjoyed sitting on the chairs outside of our room. The room was large and remodeled. The morning meal was good in spite of the virus thing. A very nice stay.

Staff friends and helpful. Rooms comfy and clean. Family suite amazing

Good location. Very comfortable and had everything we needed for a night. Great pool too! Breakfast items offered as well. Would stay there again.

I was surprised to see the staff did not have face coverings.

I love these traditional 'motel' places where you can park right outside your room. It's very convenient for coming and going.

My husband and I were so impressed with this hotel. The check-in was fast and easy. I requested a room on the first level toward the back and that is where we were put. The lobby had all sorts of ideas for day trips displayed. Very helpful! The room had everything we needed and some things we didn't even know we wanted. The room was clean, and cool (air conditioning was great!) there are a few things I really liked about the room. Instead of throw away tiny soaps, there was a soap dispenser and lotion dispenser (it is very dry there) attached to the wall right by the sink. In the shower there was a soap and shampoo dispenser. The lotion was dial moisture lotion and it really helped my dry hands. The beds were very comfortable. Nice refrigerator with a small freezer compartment for our ice packs that we used in our cooler. The shower was wonderful and much appreciated after a long hot day site seeing. We were there for 3 nights and everyday our room was cleaned nicely. Didn't use the pool but it looked great. The breakfast was just OK. They offered a grab and go type breakfast. The was a menu to choose from and you could choose 4-5 items. There was one main item, a breakfast burritos that was good but not my favorite. I wish there was one more main dish item offered some days. I'm happy that there was a variety in the other items offered. This hotel is doing an excellent job with Covid-19 guidelines. Every night we ate at the 7-11 restaurant. Great food!

Place was great. Owners put a lot of pride into place. Rooms were really nice and beds comfortable. Our kids loved the pool also. Would recommend!

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for the review. Also, thank you for letting us know about the shower pressure. We will have that looked at because that is highly unusual.
