We stayed here and used a Groupon from 8/29/14-8/31/14. The staff was friendly and the drivers were nice as well. My friend requested that all of our rooms be near each other and they accommodated us. We ate at the $15 breakfast buffet and it was good but there are a few other places to walk around to eat for...

Hello Lsg918, Thank you for your thorough review! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Elevation and that you are considering coming back! We love our return customers! The only thing more beautiful than Crested Butte in the summer is Crested Butte in the winter; and as you mentioned we are only steps away from the... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights in July. It is a poor excuse for a hotel & my family & I began to call it "Motel Hell" which was a much better suited name; we dreaded coming back to it each night to sleep. Our room looked like it had never been cleaned. There were several hairs on the... More

Dear NatureLover151, First and foremost, thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you; we value your business and sincerely wish to provide you with the best experience possible. Clearly, we fell short of your very reasonable expectations, so I can understand your frustration. Poor housekeeping is not acceptable in my book and I can assure you that the... More

We have stayed at the Elevation a few times in the past for the location, good fitness facility, comfortable room with mini kitchen, and location....despite the cavernous, stale, and boring look of the rest of the facility and the high nickel & dime approach to fees. You have to weigh those factors as you decide where to stay. The rooms... More

Very clean and stylish rooms, unbelievably beautiful views (our room had a balcony), everything one would expect from higher price hotels, but at a very reasonable price. Did I mention that the room, fixtures and linnens/towels were very clean? The location is within walking distance to everything in town, including the free bus shuttle stop. The restaurant offers a fresh... More

This was our first stay at the Elevation Hotel. We were there for four nights in August 2014 and really loved it. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette was great. We bought supplies for three breakfasts and there were adequate cooking utensils and pans so we could cook dinner one night. We... More

I have to say, we booked this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews and everyone is pretty right on. Overall the stay was great. We got a regular room with a king bed, not slope side and the room was big with a balcony and nice bathroom and kitchenette. They do provide you with a microwave, mini fridge, and... More

Once you get past the Ray Charles-designed garage - I know architects try to max out living space, but this garage layout and approach is an abomination - you enter a very large, well-run operation. The employees behind the counter could not be better. The hotel and it's rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts are large and an order can be/should... More

I don't know if it was just my good mood or if the hotel was really that great. The staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly with getting me settled in.

We arrived later than we expected on a Saturday night. Travelling with my daughter and grandbaby, we were tired, hungry and ready to relax. We arrived and unloaded with the help of a very (very) nice valet. My daughter took the car to the FREE parking 1 block away. There were 2 clerks at the front desk and apparently both... More
