This was a last minute stay, with CO2 leak at home. The hotel was clean, desk staff very friendly. Unfortunately, they had power outage earlier with loss of hot water. In morning still no hot water and intermitten internet. Did not offer discount for lack of hot water. However, some motorcyclists were stranded at the motel for several days in... More

We hit some bad weather when traveling and ended up in Fairplay, CO. A Riverside Inn was the first hotel we came to and we are thankful they had a room! We ended up having to stay two nights. The staff was very helpful and understanding of our situation. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable.... More

def the hardest/firmest bed I have ever TRIED to sleep on. Only because they are 20 miles from Brek can they charge $120 for a room like this. Beware it is a one star hotel. A breakfast is provided as simple as it is ... Muffins and yogurt... Hard boiled eggs. The room did not have a comfortable chair and... More

We had the a king room at the end of the hallway on the second floor. Very quiet and clean. The mattress and pillows were very comfortable. The breakfast was okay, but there aren't many other options in the area. The staff is very nice and helpful. Booked a room again for this weekend.

Let me start out by saying that the prices for lodging were very good. However, the problems began the first night. We paid a little extra to get a Jacuzzi tub in one of the rooms and there was no hot water the first night. We stayed there 3 nights and the WiFi never worked well. I could barley check... More

This was a nice hotel, the room and bathroom were very clean which is always a plus. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I'm not sure if I'll ever be in Fairplay again but if I am I would probably stay here.

We paid $99 for a double queen room, more than we paid at a Drury Inn in Denver. This hotel is way over priced - it is a little better than a Motel 6. I was not impressed with the cleanliness of the room, the showerhead was caked with lime (or whatever is in their water) and the beds were... More

Good place to stay. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Plenty of thickest towels. The internet service was non existent in our room and we had to spend some time in the lobby trying to connect. We were surprised that there were only muffins and no bread, otherwise cereal and yoghurt was enough for us. I would recommend this... More

Poor internet reception, sparse breakfast--hardly a meal, pleasant staff but try to find them, rudimentary exercise room, '60's rooms. But who cares? If you're in Fairplay, it's likely the outdoors that attracted you, not hanging around in your motel. Awesome mountains surround you and many other outdoor options. You can go to a restaurant with WiFi if it's that important... More
