Pleasantly Surprised

A group of us from throughout the State of Colorado descended upon Lamar for a 3 day meeting. Due to our need for meeting space we were booked at the Cow Palace and after reading some Trip Advisor reviews my expectations were very low.

Upon arrival I checked out my room prior to accepting, and found it newly remodeled with paint, fixtures and a new bed which turned out to be one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in. The check in person was friendly and accommodating. That’s when my expectations started changing.

Along with the good accommodations, we had several meals at the Cow Palace restaurant and again I wasn’t expecting much. How wrong I was. The cheese burger on Ciabatta bread was delicious. The steak was melt-in-your mouth and even breakfast was over the top with a great green chili. My colleagues talked at length about how good the food was, and when we had the opportunity to go to a different restaurant for lunch the gang decided to stay put at the Cow Palace restaurant.

Also, the staff we dealt with for our meeting space were friendly and very helpful – always asking if we needed anything and offering suggestions for meeting set-up, breaks and snacks. When we had a small mishap with a leaking water jug, the staff were quick to rectify the situation and had a replacement within minutes averting a big mess.

I highly recommend the Cow Palace Inn as a great place to rest with wonderful food and friendly staff. The current owner has put a lot of effort into upgrades and enhancements that will most likely leave the new visitor, like me, pleasantly surprised!
