I'm not sure if we just didn't have a good room as I don't know what the other rooms were like, but we were put into a room in the far corner of the basement. The layout of the room was awkward with a strange mix of furniture and decor that just didn't seem to really go together and a... More

An old miners dormitory turned into an inn is a perfect spot to stay in the historic area of Crested Butte. Great location and great staff. Very welcoming and helpful. Delicious breakfast included. Rooms are small but charming and very clean. Best place I've stayed in Crested Butte!

Unexpected spring skiing in February, great fun, really good breakfast, downtown location makes dinner easy. I come here every year. Staff are very helpful. Public transportation makes this location so easy to travel around town and to the mountain. Enjoy.

The hotel, staff, and location are awesome. Breakfast in the morning is fresh. Rooms are clean. Short walk to the shuttle. Short walk to really good restaurants and bars. The staff really is accommodating and friendly.

This lodge is a great find. You can walk to town and all the shops and restaurants, walk to the Nordic Center and trails, and easily walk to the bus stop to Mt. Crested Butte. What could be better?? Well, the rooms are clean, the breakfasts are good, and the lodge itself is lovely. We really enjoyed the common rooms... More

Great place, friendly and home style accommodations and comfortable feel. It is a historic building which is modernized with conveniences without loosing old charm. There is a good breakfast served that gets you ready for a great day of skiing on Mt Crested Butte.

Great place with character. Actually really enjoyed the bar, it was quaint and unique. It was very affordable and great location. The bar tender had great recommendations for skiing. It needs a piano player though.

The location is fantastic, two blocks from Elk Ave and bus stop. The friendly staff was helpful and gave excellent recreation and dining recommendations. I am already looking forward to staying here this summer.

My friend and I checked out three lodges in Crested Butte before settling on the Elk Mountain Lodge. It was the most expensive of our three choices, but not by much. The large and inviting common room flanked by a wood stove and stocked bar won us over. The Lodge has a history of serving miners in the 1930s. Its... More

We enjoyed being able to park the car and walk to the downtown area. The lodge itself is quaint (could use maybe alittle room updating), clean, and quiet. Breakfast was very good. They also have bikes you can use. Small bar that is open for happy hour.
