We have been staying at this motel for several years. The rooms are always spotless. The motel abuts a quiet park and is within a short walk of main street. We forgot some of our belongings, incl business files. When we contacted the owners they immediately overnighted everything and told us we could pay after we received the package. We... More

We stayed one night here on our return drive from Boulder to Dallas, via the scenic route. This hotel was recommended to us as a quiet clean hotel conveniently located within walking distance of the downtown area. It is also located directly across from the town's pretty park and "town lake" and adjacent to the town's library. We appreciated the... More

Buena Vista, CO (BV) is not a high-end town (like Breckenridge, Aspen, or Vail), and yet the hotel prices on my recent visit were higher than Breckenridge, a decidedly posher place with an abundance of fabulous free services for travelers. While none of the BV lodgings had stellar reviews on Trip Advisor, one of the more highly-rated ones was The... More

This is a family owned property. It is very clean, allergen free (no smoking and pets). It is also quiet yet in the middle of town with restaurants, shops and river area within walking distance. Some of the rooms are small with kitchenettes, but we had one of the larger rooms with king size bed (very comfortable), small refrigerator and... More

Quiet and very clean. Very nice stay. Sits next to a park and the downtown area isn't far off. No pets and no smoking adds to the cleanliness. We enjoyed our stay in Buena Vista. We happened by while traveling through the area and were able to snag a room without a reservation.

Very nice hotel that is nice and quiet and there is a really nice park with a fishing lake just across the street. Great location in Buena Vista just a short walk from many of the restaurants. I forgot some thing there and they shipped them back to me. They are very helpful with any questions that you may have.

At check-in I was asked about smoking but I sympathize; smokers may not be sensitive to how bad that odor is and how it clings to clothing. It was easy to see how much care is lavished on the place, which I greatly appreciated. I passed a quiet and restful night and hit the road the next morning ready for... More

NO SMOKING NO SMOKING I don't smoke, and I don't like smoky rooms or the smell of cigarette or pot smoke around me in general. That said, for every encounter I had with the owner (twice on the phone, once when I checked in) the first words out of his mouth were "We don't allow smoking, do you smoke?" -... More

We are very impressed with this locally owned motel. Clean, well kept and a good value too. Room was specious and comfortable. This is definitely on our list of places to stay again. The owner was very helpful in recommending eating establishments. Wish there were more motels like the Lakeside.

This place was recommended to us by locals when we were coming to Buena Vista to finalize the transaction to get our new house built. We were NOT disappointed. The rooms are spotless, the ownership friendly, the prices made it a good value. Now we are locals, and recommend this place to others, when we don't have the room to... More
