My husband and I spent two nights here in mid-March and the location is perfect. Quiet this time of year, right on the lake, and within walking distance of everything on the main drag. We were here to ski at the nordic center, and snowshoe in the park...all very close to drive to. The place itself is dated, but that's... More

I was supposed to be in Estes Park for this stay but the September flooding made that impossible. Instead of this being a negative it was turned into a wonderful experience. If you are going to this area you should check this place out.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful.The rooms were perfect for experiencing a cozy mountain vacation, with their own kitchenettes, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator. There is a separate room from the living room, which had an extra large comfortable bed. There is a T.V. in the bedroom and in the living room there is a large flat screen T.V,... More

We were unable to get to Estes Park on the night of 12th September because of the floods. Our last possible point of entry via the Trail Ridge Road was not attempted following advice from the park rangers so we were stranded in Grand Lake and needed a hotel fast. We stumbled on this hotel after the chamber of commerce... More

Highly recommend the motel. Beautiful lake view from umbrella tables on the deck. Walk to any place in town without moving your car. We were supposed to go to Estes Park, but the evacuation caused us to change our plans. Ann at Western Riviera was so helpful, as was all of the staff. Grand Lake is a wonderful town with... More

Great coffee and pastries at the Bakery next door; walking distance to restaurants and downtown activities. The room?? very small bathroom; decor very dated; King size bed very soft and spongy; carpet old and wrinkled... but all in all we had a... More

Thank you for your comments. We strive to make sure each guest has a good experience. We are very fortunate to have wonderful views from our lakeside properties. We replaced the flooring in 1/2 of the motel rooms this past spring and are planning to update the 8 remaining rooms in Spring 2014. We're glad you enjoyed Grand Lake. More

Western Riviera has had many owner changes since I first stayed there in the late 1970's, and it has always been a pleasant place to stay. It is the only hotel in Grand Lake fronting on the lake itself. The staff currently is very nice and helpful. Hot coffee is always available in the office area. The minor negatives are... More

We had our wedding at Point Park in Grand Lake and the reception at the Western Riviera Event Center. We also stayed in the Tree House on our wedding night. Of all the things you may have to worry about during a destination wedding weekend, the Western RIv is not one of them. The entire event went without a hitch... More
