Charming small hotel with great service. It's not the most expensive hotel in Aspen, reasonably priced and they have great service like airport shuttle, a good buffet after skiing, pool, location in Aspen is perfect: on walking distance of everything and the ski bus stop is in front of the hotel. We're coming back this year!

Stayed here in 2013 with my husband on a weekend getaway to Aspen. Chose the hotel because of the proximity to the town area! Lots of restaurants nearby as well as shopping. It was my first time to Aspen, and MGL was a great choice! I loved the bicycles and also the pool area! Great hotel!

Bring a flashlight with you. This is the darkest hotel I have ever been to. MG is way overdue for an update. Definitely not the hotel I expected. I used the reviews from tripadvisor to help decide to book here. The plus off the hotel is the staff. Very nice folks at the front office. I purposely skipped the cheapest... More

Definitely not what I expected for the price. I paid the same to stay here as I have to stay in international five-star hotels, so I wasn't expecting everything to be so ... old. I was here for five days for work, which ate up all of my time and I unfortunately didn't have time to use any of the... More

Decent location and price. Dated rooms, window unit (non commercial, like in a house) is your climate control system. Had to regrettably depart early, they get all of their money upfront w no cancellation policy. Didn't mind paying for one night, typical but the entire trip along w the clerks attitude...there are many other choices in Aspen.

Molly Gibson is a gem in aspen. I've stayed there many times over the last 5 years and have always had a good experience. It's clean, roomy, affordable, and 2 blocks from the heart of Aspen's pedestrian streets. The breakfast is hearty & best of all, it's a dog-friendly.

We enjoyed our stay this past weekend- had a room upstairs at the back of the lodge- quite large room and it was quiet. Enjoyed the jacuzzi and proximity to town's restaurants. Things were raucous at the pool area around happy hour but we couldn't hear it in our room. Decent buffet breakfast including fresh fruitcup.

We arrived at the Molly Gibson and was greeted by very helpful and friendly staff, letting us know all the good spots to go. Our room was very nice, tidy and lovely Jacuzzi to relax in after a hard day up the mountain. View of Aspen Mountain. Also several spas and swimming pool outside.

Really enjoyed my 5 night stay at the Molly Gibson for several reasons: - great location - wonderful customer service - free bikes (cruisers) available for guests - nice pool - fridge in each room While the rooms are small --- they are clean. For Aspen, this is a good value and a nice place to stay.

This is a friendly and cute but many of the rooms are noisy - not with street noise but because they are on walkways or near hot tubs. My room was quite noisy because it was next to the walkway and the hot tub/seating area. And then someone started “weed-whacking” at 7AM in the morning outside my window. Management was... More
