Staying up this property was my first exposure to the Stoney Creek experience. It was quick to see that this Iowa based company is more than just a hospitality company. We were able to stay in the Cottages, a separate building with oversized suites and jacuzzis in each room. Each morning, we were greeted with a complimentary breakfast prepared by...

We stayed in the master suite and you think the staff would have some respect but no. First my group got stuck in the elevator and the staff never said sorry or anything. Then they came into our room and harassed us for splashing each other in the pool. Then three minutes later they kicked us out on the street...

I always enjoy Stoney Creek. They have a great place for a reasonable price. Have stayed for both pleasure and business. Staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is pretty good. Several of my colleagues have used the hotel as well.

clean hotel rooms. nicely decorated I was traveling with my wife and kids. The negative would be the beds are doubles instead of queens when staying for three nights larger beds would of been more comfortable if queens instead of doubles.

We love the decor and style of Stoney Creek Hotels. Our room was decorated nicely in a rustic style. However, the room felt old and the rug was worn. There weren't enough plug-ins to charge our phones. The breakfast bar was better than some, with a nice bowl of fresh fruit. The bed was comfortable.

I drive to Colorado quite often and this is my definite stop on the way to and from. It is awesome and I just love it! The rooms are comfortable, the staff is friendly, the breakfast is free and good, and it's quite convenient. Highly recommended.

Rooms are large. Breakfast is great variety. Lots of places within walking distance to get food. Movie theater within walking distance. This is located off the busy interstate system and is exceptionally quiet. Family friendly hotel and very business friendly too! I attend business meetings here 3 times a year and always have been satisfied with exceptional service.

My great experience started with a phone call. I called and asked if we could get in early..."You bet!" was the response I got. Then I got there early and they said, "Let's see if we can get you an upgrade." They upgraded my room with just a King size bed to a King Suite that was AMAZING! This is...
