I find it hilarious that bowlers use the names of the district manager and vice president of the company to make statements that their own building has issues. They use the name of other league bowlers as if they are actually posting a comment. First off, AMF has spent a lot of money upgrading as much as they can in this center among many centers in their company with limited budgeting. They offer free bowling for children in the summer time every single day, offer competitive prices in the area considering the cost of bowling is going up drastically everywhere in the country. I started bowling on leagues at Sonesta 5 years ago and have seen nothing but changes for the better in this center. I bowl at their competitor as well and have seen them try to improve as well. How can you people be so nasty and quite frankly childish to post such garbage on a site that should be used to discuss legitimate bowler related issues, not your kindergarten rantings? Leave sites like this alone and don't post your trash so those that visit here can make their judgments based on actual facts and not your bad behaviors. Last thing I have to say is I give your props AMF for continuing to operate a center that is older and continuing to try to improve it as best as you can in the time you can for us true and real bowlers who love the sport that is dying and will eventually be hard to find places to participate at, in an economical way (meaning one that people can afford). The manager tries his best to keep our costs down and less than the other center that I bowl at all the while keeping this in mind. I speak to him regularly and have asked a great few favors of him, only to find that he is always willing to try to accommodate me and my league. Remember one thing nasty bowlers, it is you and your behavior on this and other sites that is killing our sport and driving our costs up and causing bowlers that are interested like I was 5 years ago in joining or rejoining the leagues that you bowl on. Your only hurting yourselves by being so childish. B2U staff, you should be ashamed for allowing postings like those to be put on your site without actually doing a little research on the crazy rantings of the people posting them. You shouldn't contribute to the death of the sport as well...your better than that.

All of you need to get a life and grow up already. Using names (which you didn't even spell correctly) of company employees or for that letter of bowlers is ridiculous. Having to hide behind someone else's name is stupid and the fact that you can't make a statement using your own name shows how childish you are and honestly...not wanted. I've bowled at Sonesta my entire life...seen many changes both good and bad and would never be so stupid. If you don't like something about the place, shut your trap, or go talk to the manager. They have had some good staff and bad staff and guess what morons, THAT HAPPENS IN EVERY just shut up so people can post on here the things that actually matter.

It appears anyone can't put any name in here and pretend like you are that person. I am a league officer for 2 leagues here and have no plans on leaving

Pull the damn weeds from the volleyball courts. How about a consistent lane condition for the bowlers? Why don't us league bowlers get discounts on alcohol like the volleyball players?

Oh, it's a lovely place for Hillbilly's to hang out at. Dump, dump, dump. Why don't you pull some weeds from the volleyball courts?

Nothing has changed for the better here. Too expensive beer and food, lane conditions are terrible. Moving our league to Northglenn next season

We'll I might be a fool but the shot here is not very consistent!

Sonesta Lanes has greatly improved. AMF is the best play to bowl. They have the best leagues and deals on bowling. If you haven't been there for awhile you should check it out, huge improvement. They did a bunch of upgrades and the management staff is terrific

Whenever i need a ball drilled Glenn is the man to see. The pro shop is the best in the state. As for the alley, its bad. the staff is rude, the lanes need some work and the prices are a little high.

Why don't you fools stop bashing this place? We're doing the best we can...

WOW. Some of these comments look like they were typed by methheads who are to high to spell.

I've been bowling at sonesta for years. It seems they are getting worse and worse. I dont know if its management or the economy but the prices are extreme and the staff seem unhappy. The food and snack bar kids are busy screwing off while the bartenders and lane waitresses work their tail off to make a good impression. I have been very happy with the waitstaff as before it was very touch and go. I want to continue to bowl there and so would my family but the prices are getting outragious and I know I could get a better deal somewhere else. Heres to hoping.

its nice when the employees are nice. the waitresses s*ck. the prices are high. the lane conditions are only good when there is a league. the bartenders serve to anyone. i'd have to agree with the person who complains about the location, because it is true. nothing but trouble.

took my son and his cousin last week am going again this week with another cousin and probably lady friends of theirs. Had a great time, clean environment, a pleasure to be at.

well the place is in the heart of Thornton, so that means that 98% of the bowlers who go there are crackheads or methheads. Dont bowl there unless you're looking for a good deal on drugs to then later be caught by Adamns County drug task force to then later lose your kids to social services (common thing in Thornton).

love the over sized front ball returns now only if they put oil on the lanes to compinsate so bowlers are not making love with the bulky hoods on the ball returns !

Comment Date: 10/13/2006 Name: bowler for years
waitresses need to learn how to roll with the punches when working and dont take things to heart.and run to corperate crying because someone said something to affend them. they need to dish out what has been gave to them if they want respect from bowlers !!! my oppinion ! they should not work there if they cant handle rude remarks ! crybaby's !!
