It was late at night and I was coming off a 14er climb and I felt lucky to find an unclaimed room in the Fairplay Hotel. The history of this establishment is quite fascinating, but the new owners have not made much progress in upgrading the old systems in the last year. I was pleased to have a comfortable bed... More

Apparently it was recently purchased by someone that didn't own a vacuum cleaner, or any other cleaning supplies. Walked up to the front desk, and after a few minutes this women walks in that I'd swear I just woke up and I need of a hair brush, looks me up and down and said that will be $100.00 my son... More

Funky at best, but they try fairly hard in Fairplay. An old, old property that is slowly being renovated. They are replacing the hot water tanks, so it takes a while to get hot water to upstairs rooms.

We stopped at the Fairplay Hotel for lunch. The waitress was friendly, but we had to ask for napkins and silverware. We had two hamburgers, fries, and Cokes. The bill was $30.21. The restroom was not clean, and the paper towel dispenser was empty. On the plus side, the hotel has an old-time charm about it which we enjoyed, though... More

First of all, I will say that the staff was very accommodating. Their latest check-in time is usually 8:00 pm but we were getting there later than that and they made arrangements to have someone there for us. However, I was a little disappointed in the room. I knew from the description that it was a historic hotel but I... More

We came into town thinking we had a reservation elsewhere and we're lucky enough to land here. We were tired and hungry and needed to be taken care of and that's just what we got! Our room was set up just for us! They were able to get us a fresh pizza even at that late hour. The beds were... More

We booked a Saturday night at Fairplay Hotel for Mother's Day get away and had a wonderful stay there. We were so glad to hear they reopened under new ownership. The hotel is old (built in 1873), has lots of character and history! They are dog friendly with no extra fees for furry children! Just the kind of places we... More

We met family here for lunch, and the bartender did not toss us out, even once! She was most accommodating, and was happy to bring us multiple refills on our water (we were acclimating!) as well as some delicious adult beverages.

The Fairplay is is unique in the best way. Gorgeous amenities and wood work. The restaurant serves fantastic fresh food, and the rooms were perfect. There has apparently been a difficult transition for the new owners due to an uncooperative previous owner. The staff was great, I highly recommend it.
