I usually do a "Rocky Mountain Loop" road trip every year, and I stayed here in June '13 and '14. Great, friendly, little place and a good spot to leave the next day going across Poudre Canyon and up into western Nebraska. I like to stop at the Tabernash Tavern (11 miles south), then grab a pie at Drive By... More

We stayed at Trail Riders Motel in Granby prior to traveling into Rocky Mountain National Park. Having stayed in West Yellowstone and Cody prior to Grandy, I really appreciated the great value this property provides (especially with the super-secret 2 person, one-bed discount: call direct, code TRM). Plus the place is just cute! Our retro room was quite large with... More

This room was clean and very small. The bathroom is even smaller but the shower was hot and had lots of water pressure. There were window fans which we needed even though it was late September. The day had gotten to 80 degrees so to be shut up in a tiny room you needed a way to get air flowing... More

We recently stayed here in #4, a two bedroom unit. Two queen beds and VERY comfortable. The bathroom has a new floor and toilet since we were last here. New carpet, too, I think. Knotty pine paneling. A desk with chair in each room. It's a cozy place; a mountain town place. What is so outstanding about it is that... More

Clean and well maintained. Refrig was "preset" with no knob, stops dope from setting too low and freezing everything. WIFI and TV worked well. Take out on the fly breakfast had banana, bagels, muffin and a good coffee. Found no ice machine but did not ask where it was. Better than the other town options

Stayed one night in Granby after touring Rocky Mountains National Park. Our room was very interesting and eclectic. It actually had two bedrooms and one bathroom. It had no air conditioning but stayed reasonably cool at night despite heat outside. It was clean enough but a little rough around the edges. Okay for a one-night stay. Good bagel breakfast with...

As other reviewers have emphasized, this place is clean and charming. Conveniently located on the highway, it is easy to find. The rooms are small but well furnished, including dressers, a small kitchen-type table, refrigerator, microwave, shelving, small closet for hanging items, and even a roll of paper towels in the "kitchen" area of the room. I could certainly see... More

Thank you so much! It is really nice to know when our guests are happy with their stay. Dale and Tracy work very hard at the motel and it's nice to know you've been appreciated. The Trail Riders was opened in 1951 so the rooms are small compared to todays motels. We work hard at keeping it clean and comfortable,... More
