I'd stay there again. Most importantly for $65 a night it was nice and clean. One minor incoveniece was they no longer take credit cards. Good thing we brought the checkbook.

First, we have stayed in five star hotels and small town family owned motels. As long as a place is very clean with basic amenities, bug free, comfortable beds/linens and in a good location we are not picky. The Blair Motel room was all of the above but the floor creaked terribly every step we took in every spot of... More

We spent the night at Blair Motel last month. Our stay was VERY pleasant! The room was large and very clean! It was located on a quiet residential street and the owers were very helpful. I would ask to stay in a room on the front side of the motel. There is a large apartment building facing the back side... More

We always try to use the family owned Mom and Pop's while traveling and it can be hit and miss. This is definitely a hit. Clean place, everything worked, quiet, nice people. The owner's 11 year old granddaughter checked us in (with help from grandpa). Very nice. We checked out two other motels in this same class and the Blair... More

We thought the Blair Motel was excellent. Rooms were very clean, and the price was outstanding. The friendly young lady who helped in the front office was so sweet and helpful. Love to see family run businesses like this today, they are far and few between. Definately would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable, clean place to stay.

It gets in the 90s in Idaho Springs in the summer and the Blair has no air contioning! Unbelievable. It was terribly hot and I had to leave the windows open for a little breeze and this left me open to all the drunken goings on in the apartment house directly behind me. Certainly not quiet as advertised. They had... More

The Blair is nothing fancy, but it worked great for us. Fridge and microwave in the room, nice clean bathroom, and semi-comfortable beds. Rates had just gone up, but still a pretty good deal for the area. Not alot of high end hotels to pick from in Idaho Springs. Only drawback is the Blair is on the western end of... More

The Blair Motel is a great choice if you are just looking for a place to crash for the night. The room was nothing special (carpeted bathroom kind of strange) but the price was fair for what we got - no frills, no breakfast, just a clean place to sleep and shower. And the owners were very friendly.

The first time I stayed here, I was in the mood to be off the main drag, but within easy walking distance of the Tommyknocker brewpub, and the Blair Motel totally filled the bill. The room was on the main floor, a few doors down from the motel office fronting Colorado Ave., and was roomy & clean, and pleasanty free... More
