The website for the Topaz Lodge exhorts one would be treated like family. That is quite the truth, as the poor relation in a poor family. The Topaz Lodge is a good example of why large corporate motels have gained the ground in America. Namely, lack of updating and a general shabby appearance coupled with indifferent innkeeper tendencies will consign... More

Listen, it's not the Ritz. Topaz is quaint, clean, accomodating, near everything...in the center of town. The owners, employees were more than helpful. The comforers look like they're from the 80's, but we didn't care. Affordable, and we learned this property had been around 100+ years which was special. Very little complaints here

We chose this Lodge for a Staycation. We stayed over night after a great visit to the Mount Princeton Hot Springs. The rooms are older but well kept and very clean. The manager and staff very friendly. We would stay there again.

What a wonderful place to stay in this quaint and interesting town. The room was pleasant and clean, the beds were comfortable, the location can't be beat for convenience, the price is right, and the owners go out of their way to make your visit fun and relaxing. It's the perfect place to stay in the Arkansas Valley. I would... More

Yes, it is an old place with walls about a foot thick. Thick walls cut down noise from your neighbors. Very nice folks running the place. Sort of takes you back to living in the 60s with these rooms and small bathrooms. If you are expecting cookie cutter Super 8 rooms you will be disappointed. Lots of charm with an... More

You can really tell the age of this place, but it is still a decent place to stay. The rooms aren't extravagant or anything, but they are spacious and serve their purpose. The hotel is located right downtown so its easy to get to restaurants and other establishments in town either by car or walking. The employees are very friendly... More

My strong recommendation for lodging in Buena Vista is the Topaz Lodge, located on the east side of US 24 just 50 yards north of the traffic light in the center of BV. It's a conveniently located "base camp" to which to return when fishing, biking, white-watering, hiking, or climbing mountains in the southern and central Sawatch and Collegiate Peaks... More

We stayed in room 12 which sleeps 5. Hosts were friendly and the location was good, but that's about all we can list as positive about the Topaz Lodge. The old mattresses sagged to the middle, grout in the shower needs deep cleaning and bedspreads smelled as if they hadn't been washed in awhile. One of the windows didn't even... More

Hot water ran out in about 10 mins. Only had one towel even though there was two of us. Complained to lady at front desk (not the owner but perhaps her daughter???) and she acted like she could care less and we were disturbing her. Room had a damp, musty smell. Will strya elsewhere next time and suggest any travelers... More

if truly ALL you need is a bed and shower it'll do. facilities got stuck in the '60s. inspite of some attempts to modernize/upgrade the only thing that will save this friendly run family business is the wrecking ball and start all over again.
