Clean, friendly, and reasonable price. Great access to Basalt restaurants (on foot) and bus routes to skiing. Good breakfast (oatmeal, boiled eggs, bananas, sugary cereal and bagels). Small hot tub but hotel wasn't busy so it didn't matter.

When we can't find an accommodation in Snowmass Village, we usually stay down in Carbondale or Glenwood Springs. This past weekend we decided to try out the Aspenalt Lodge in Basalt. What a great little gem! Our room was spacious, very clean and the Riverside Grill is across the parking lot which was very convenient. If you are looking for... More

We have been staying at this motel on the Frying Pan River for the last 15 years when we head to Basalt to fish the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers. It is one of the cleanest motels you will find anywhere and within walking distance to a number of good restaurants.The motel does not have air conditioning but you... More

Very clean and well located, walk to everything...Beautiful river front hotel, get ground floor river front for extra value and local atmosphere. Staff is very nice and friendly, housekeeping is wonderful this place is so clean you won't notice that it is an older hotel that is updated and is better than others have said. We go to Basalt several... More

Decent property on banks of Frying Pan River. Older buildings, but well-maintained. Included breakfast when we stayed there. Rooms a bit cramped, but we had five of us in one double room with rollaway. Easy parking.

We stayed here for one night in September. We had planned to bicycle from Basalt to Carbondale on the Rio Grande Trail. The manager let us check in around noon, so we could leave our car in their lot and put our suitcases in our room, and we started our bicycle trip right from the motel's parking lot -- we... More

We've stayed here 2 years in a row as an alternative to the expensive and tiresome routines of Aspen. For us, the easy and pretty 20-25 minute ride from Basalt for the music festivals, a meal or other activities in Aspen is an easy commute and Basalt is closer to Redstone, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs than from Aspen. As for... More

These people are so cheap that they have outdated TVs and outdated TV shows (reruns) as well as an outdated computer in the lobby with a chair that sits about 15" off the ground. The computer is so slow it hardly works at all. Their equipment is laughable. The housekeeping didn't come until 3pm, and only if you happen to... More

We've been staying at this small motel in Basalt for over 20 years. The recent remodel of the rooms gives the property a fresh updating. Although the rooms are still a basic motel style, they are clean and fresh. Basic breakfast is included in room price. Be sure to ask for a room on the river side, ground level so... More
