When staying in Lake City this motel is a great choice. Quiet, clean, well appointed with parking right out front. This is a clean, charming location right near the middle of historic Lake City Colorado. A good value, with warm attentive service and with a great view. Within walking distance for eating or drinking.

Quiet, spotless motel. All guests speaking in low voices. No kids around, no rowdy groups. Complimentary chardonnay at check-in put us in a right mood. It is an amazing place. Regina and Mark were wonderful.Thank you, Terry, for making our San Juans experience so memorable, and for creating a place where one can unwind after full days spent in a... More

This was my second time staying at the Matterhorn. I had my son with me and we had a blast. We were hiking and jeep riding for a few days and this is a perfect base for exploring the area. The alpine loop is three blocks away. Town is easily walkable. Rooms are basic but clean and well cared for.... More

Terry was very quick to respond to my inquiry and helpful setting up my reservation. Fairly last minute on my part but she was able to accommodate my requests. Nice clean room on the end. Very quiet despite the normal Lake City summer bustle. We arrived late to find our room waiting for us. We'll definitely stay here again when... More

We were riding the Colorado Trail and staying at motels each night. Lake City was right on the route. We had made reservations ahead of time not knowing anything about the place. It turned out to be a great place to stay. The room was comfortable and the staff was AWESOME. Wine at check in. We even had shampoo AND... More

We visited Lake City to do some prospecting. Apparently the owner of this motel hangs out in the visitor center of this tiny town to fill up her rooms, (without disclosing) haha, well, she hooked us, cause we rented the last room. The rooms are clean, have coffee a stall shower, flat screen tv, free wifi and boxed wine is... More

We came into Lake City via a dirt road mountain pass from Rt 114 knowing nothing about Lake City and were tired and hungry. What a nice town! There was a marathon of some sort going on so we were concerned about lodging but our first choice the Matterhorn had a room due to cancellation. Very clean and comfortable room... More

We only spent one night, but would stay there again if we happen to be in Lake City. The room was clean and pleasant. The people in the office were very friendly. It is just a short walk to the historic downtown.

We appreciate your kind review of The Matterhorn! Indeed, we are in the middle of town and guests very much like to park their bikes or vehicles and walk to the shops, restaurants/coffee shops, hiking trails, etc. We hope to see you on another occasion. Thank you! More

The Matterhorn is not a five-star luxury hotel. However, it is the nicest hotel in the Lake City area. One does not go to Lake City for indoor activity. He or she goes for the beautiful scenery and outdoor adventures. This is a great place to stay on such occasions. The hotel is neat, clean, and personal. The staff is... More

What a lovely room with kitchenette we had. Very comfortable, very clean and very quiet. As others have mentioned, the shower (and bathroom on the whole) is small but still quite functional. The owner, proprietress, was very welcoming and friendly which is a lovely way to be greeted after traveling all day. Kitchenette was very well stocked with pots/pans, utensils,... More
