We stayed here upon a recommendation by a customer my boyfriend met at work. It was the best thing we ever did! Becca (sp?) in the office was so friendly and helpful and gave us stellar eating recommendations. Best BBQ and burrito EVER! The cabin was so cozy and clean and comfortable with a great view of the lake and... More

We had a ground floor king bed room in the older motel section. We really enjoyed the view of the lake from our room, and made good use of the tables and chairs on the deck to relax. Although this is an older building, it is clean and very well maintained, with some upgrades. The staff is friendly and helpful.... More

My husband and I learned about the Western Riviera from Hotel Impossible. We are so glad we did! The hotel was great - very clean and comfortable. The lake view was an added plus! Such a cute town full of great places to shop and eat.

We stay every year for three days and attend the repertory theater in August. We stay in the lakeside cabins, which are rustic, but we love the location and the view. I recommend both the cabins and the theater.

My family just spent a week in Grand Lake. We stayed in the courtyard cabins, Pine Cone. We arrived a little later in the evening. The front desk person was so great. She called to check on our arrival time. The location was perfect. Close to all the restaurants, shopping and lake. We were able to walk everywhere we went... More

We loved sitting on the balcony outside our room, sipping complimentary coffee and hot chocolate, and watching the sailboats zip by during Regatta Week! We also enjoyed short and pleasant walks out to breakfast, enjoyable walks to the Boardwalk and easy access to kayaking and boating. For us, the Western Riviera offered everything we wanted for our stay at Grand... More

It was one step up from camping! I've never stayed at a hotel where they refused to send housekeeping staff to the room every day. No one made our beds, changed towels or emptied the trash. For example, we were told to pickup extra TP at the hotel office. It was a block away. Rooms were tiny even by European... More

Thank you for taking the time to write. Our small lakeside cabins are only open in the summer months and are very small with a 3/4 bath. We try to convey this at the time of booking so our guests understand and are not surprised on arrival, and apologize that you felt misled. We are sorry that WiFi for the... More

We enjoyed the peaceful setting and the clean cabin for our three-night stay at Grand Lake, Colorado. While the cabins are older and not luxurious, our cabin (#1) was well-maintained, clean, and had everything we needed. The king bed was very comfortable. The deck, chairs, table, and lake views were wonderful. The staff was friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful. We would... More

We are glad you had a peaceful, pleasant and relaxing stay at our large lakeside cabins, and enjoyed the views. These cabins were built in the 1960's and originally named Leatherwood Cabins. We have kept some of the nostalgia of the original cabins while providing modern conveniences for our guests. Our housekeeping staff strives to achieve deep cleaned quality rooms... More

Lakeside Motel has wonderful views from room and porch viewing of Grand Lake. Anything you are interested in, the girls at the desk can help you find it, from good food to entertainment. Located great for Rocky Mountain National Park entry, if you like viewing wildlife this is where to be. The "Moose" population must like Grand Lake as much... More

We had to change our plans and were looking for last minute accommodations for a holiday weekend. Tracy and Becca at the Western Riviera were very helpful and we had a wonderful first floor room looking out onto the lake. Our room did not have a refrigerator so they graciously loaned us a cooler. They seemed to take a genuine... More
