After over 24 hours of driving without sleep, and a lot of it stuck on winding mountain roads, we had to sleep. The car wasn't going to work. This was the first city we came to. And this was the only place with a vacancy. The owner/staff(?) Behind the desk. But, other than that there was a shower, toilet, to... More

My son and I stayed at the Topaz Lodge July 3rd. The location and town were beautiful. The owners were very nice and helpful and gave me a map and directions to where we could viiew the continental divide. While in the office I noticed a picture woth someone feeding a chipmunk. When I enquires about the picture, I was... More

We rented a couple of rooms for my family to stay while we visited the nearby hot springs. The owner was nice enough but I wouldn't stay there again. It is way over priced for a very, very basic and incredibly dated room without any amenities. He did bring in a microwave when we inquired about one, but even that... More

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
