4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The rooms are a great value for a summer stay. The food, unfortunately, is a rip off (as with most mountain towns). There aren't a lot of food choices up on the mountain, especially at breakfast. The pool is tiny - no laps for you. You should expect to pay for parking, you should expect to pay $15 for a... More

The wildflowers and scenery were awesome! Equally as awesome was our experience at the conveniently-located Elevation Hotel. The staff was very helpful and patient with all of our inquiries about Crested Butte and the most spectacular hiking paths there. The room was very spacious and beautifully furnished, complete with a fully equipped kitchenette. We enjoy fresh air and had no... More

Three of us stayed the hotel which was only 3 miles from the center of Crested Butte. We had a lovely view from our balcony. The outdoor hot tub was nice. The hotel was clean and very nice. Self parking was tight, but we were always able to find a space.

We stayed at the Elevation Hotel and Spa for our anniversary. We were offered an upgrade at check in for a fee that included vouchers to be used in the restaurant. Unfortunately, since it was off season the restaurant closed early. The hotel did refund us for the difference. We only ate at the restaurant for breakfast and it was... More

Room had a king size bed, small kitchen area (half 'fridge, small bar sink, microwave), bathroom, closet and deck. Our view was of the roof of the pool area. Room was clean and nice. We had a small, 11 pound, very old mini dachshund for which they charged $30/day. Seems a one time charge would be a better idea; they... More

Hello Jingleacres, Thank you for your kind compliments about Sherry. She is wonderful and we love her too! I will make sure to pass your words along to her; I know it will make her day. As for the note about our pet fee, we do charge nightly so you should have only been charged $60 not $90. Please call... More

We go to Crested Butte quit often and this was our first time staying at the Elevation Hotel. The room was very nice, it was clean and the bed was quit comfortable, the front desk and bell staff were friendly and helpful but then we started to encounter some discouraging problems. We awoke the first morning and found that there... More

Hotel accommodations were lovely and great location! The dissatisfaction came when trying to get a dinner charge credited that did not belong to us. We stayed in March for Spring break and I have yet to receive credit after being told twice by bookkeeping and desk staff that it would be credited. Upon checking out I did not notice the... More

We booked this hotel thru Hotwire and were pleasantly surprised! Our room was spacious and had a small kitchen area with a sink, microwave, and beverage refrigerator (meaning racks do not adjust for taller items). Restaurant was reasonably priced with some nights having great dinner specials. Nice outdoor seating area with firepit and view of ski lift. Lots of activities... More

The hotel is pretty & has a gorgeous back drop of the mountain-apparently the only ski-in, ski-out venue in CB. That's why I say it has a good foundation - the problem is I believe the laid-back attitude of that area affects the service greatly. Also they have to hire very young folks as servers & they just don't have... More
