My boyfriend and I stayed here two nights as a jumping-off point to Mesa Verde. It could not have been better! The room was clean and adorably decorated (we stayed in the Zane Grey, where a copy of one of his books was on the shelf). The owners went out of their way to accommodate us. When we needed to...

Never been to a B & B before , we thought it would be an interesting experience, Plus the guy at the visitor center said it might be haunted lol, good way to add to the fun. Big mansion filled with 17 rooms, house was amazingly interesting, the structure, decore, old style bathtub and overall feeling of being in an... More

Our club hosted a dog show in Dolores so I needed to be close. The hotel was built in the 1800s and the rooms are quaint and very well kept. They owners were so kind to give me a tour of the rooms and lots of great historical facts of the hotel. Since I was here for the dog show,... More

My wife and I stayed in the Pink Room which was cozy and warm. All the rooms on the 2nd floor are decorated in individual themes. The hotel was clean. Although the restaurant is not open to the general public, guests are served a tasty and filling breakfast. If you shun the impersonal, plastic and chrome corporate motels, the Rio... More

This was one of life's great surprise . We lucked on to this B&B in Dolores. Susi was one of the B&B best hostess ever. You have to try the breakfast to believe. Stayed in Teddy Roosevelt room and next to Zane Grey room . This is where he wrote "RIDERS OF PURPLE SAGE." Outstanding experience. Loved the stay.

First of all - if you are coming for a Hilton experience - you will be disappointed. My husband and I were looking for something with old west charm, away from chain stores and crowded streets - we found the perfect place in the Rio Grande! We were greeted by a sweet and well-behaved Pomeranian followed by Susi, the owner.... More

We were greeted by a guy in bear feet smoking a cig outside the Hotel. (That is not a typo...he had footwear that looked like giant bear paws) I believe he may have been a tennant in the Hotel...or just a local character. The room is small (We stayed in room 2 the Roosevelt room) as well as a tiny... More

I found Delores after looking for bed and breakfasts near Mesa Verde. When we arrived after a long day of travel and exploration we found the door to be unlocked, but nearly a ghost town. :) When we finally found someone to ask about checking in, we were pleasantly greeted by Joe and Suzie. Nearing 9pm, we asked if there... More

Drove down to Dolores in October to see the leaves in color. A highlight of our trip was the little rio grand southern b&b with a long history. The small rooms are decorated in plush Victorian style. We were very comfortable and slept well both nights snuggled under the many pillows and featherbed blankets. Pet friendly for our service dog,... More

I read the previous reviews and was somewhat leary to stay here but the charm called me in! I travel often and was sooo impressed with this bed and breakfast...WARNING: DON'T EXPECT Don't expect a brand new, evrything in place, perfect chain type hotel. It was true to life, an old place with a laid back feeling to it. There... More
