Hotel prices in Aspen, CO are sky-high, so I looked for a hotel in nearby Basalt. But there is no price low enough to justify staying in a place this decrepit facility. When I drove up, I could see that the place was old, and I've stayed in old properties, before, so no warning bells went off. But when I... More

Four of us stayed 2 nights at the GD. We are fishermen, and do not require luxury hotels. However, this was totally unacceptable. The bathroom had mold on virtually every surface. There were dead bugs in several places. There is no A/C -- not the end of the world in the mountains -- but the windows didn't work (and looked... More

Do not book rooms here using the internet. They will send you a "confirmation number" but it is meaningless since their computer system cannot identify you by that number. We made a reservation there four months ago and arrived, confirmation number in hand, to find there were no rooms and no record of our reservation. The confirmation number was irrelevant.... More

There is a reason there aren't more pictures of this place on line! We checked in (the owner was very nice and accomodating) and one look at our room and we were out of there. Tiny spaces, few windows, shabby furnishings and bedroom so small you couldn't even walk around the bed - the kind of place you wouldn't want... More

We slept one night, the service was super! We could not work out how the shower worked, and there was nobody to ask. Nice bed, clean towels and nice aircondition. And we met a bear! A real bear, outside our room.

The area and the local wildlife are amazing in this area and we are very happy that you were able to experience part of it. There is so much more to see so come back and stay again. More

Super friendly front desk. Kristin was very helpful with a restaurant recommendation. Go to the Brick Pony, it was fabulous! Clean and quirky little motel. Beds could have used a mattress topper or other sort of padding.

With only two options in Basalt, we looked at location and the Green Drake seemed to be the better of the two in that regard. The other hotel shares the parking lot with the grocery store. The woman at the front desk was polite and pleasant. No, this is not a plush hotel but for us it was a quiet... More

My wife and I recently returned from a wonderful holiday in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. Wonderful except for our stay at the poorly managed Green Drake Hotel. Despite its charming setting in the town of Basalt, this hotel is clearly a place to avoid. At 5:00 am, my wife and I woke to the sound s of construction... More

The rooms really need to be renovated. Everything is shabby. The carpets (and we saw inside more rooms than our own) are filthy. Wear socks. The tub faucets in our room were marked wrong. The hot faucet was cold water, and the cold was hot water. We have a nineteen month old infant, and this could have been very dangerous.... More

We stayed in one of the suites while visiting relatives and skiing. Very well kept and clean. Friendly and helpful management. Right in the middle of town and within walking distance to restaurants, grocery store, bank...everything. They have a hot tub but it was not working during our stay. Equivalent to three stars in AAA.
