Had a great stay here. Room is very clean, very neat, loved the furnishings, the people that work/own this place and the atmosphere. Lots of space for clothing, had 2 beds and a couch, but still lots of room. Intended on only staying one night, but stayed two since it was so charming. That is pretty much it in a... More

Nice little hotel. We spent a weekend during the winter and really enjoyed our stay. We got to use the hot tub after a day of ice climbing and the owner brought even wine for us! Will come back! Very private feel.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and the ice wall! More people are discovering the great ice in Lake City every winter and it seems the slower pace in town is our guests favorite part of their visit. Thank you for your kind review and we hope you are able to visit us again soon. Terry Morrow,... More

We stayed here for work and we loved it . The rooms are small but nice, and have newer flat screens in them. Small bathrooms, but nice and clean. The owners are are very nice and work hard to make your stay the best. In a small town they are great. They also have a hot tub.m

The lake was gorgeous and we even saw a moose in the shallows. This was a great small town hotel and a must stay. From the hotel we walked all over town which had a festive atmosphere and everyone was nice. Mule deer were in the schoolyard playground. Once we were looking for them they were all over town. This... More

We stayed there recently on our quest to climb one of the fourteen-er. The stay was comfortable, rooms were clean and staff was very cordial and accommodating. There was a mix up with our reservation but they were very courteous, we needed a late check out so we could clean up after the climb and they accommodated us.

Matterhorn had good reviews so I phoned to reserve and was surprised it was $99 for one for a room with no fridge or micro - most expensive room my whole six-day trip. When I checked her confirmation email, it was quoted at $109. I immediately phoned: "Oh, sorry, we don't usually have singles, so...." When I got there, I... More

While we are very sorry this guest could not find one thing he liked about our historic, retro property, I am unable to apologize profusely as most all of our guests leave refreshed, rejuvenated and smiling. We see many guests enjoying the lovely view from the outdoor furniture every evening. Yes, the shower stalls are small as the space we... More

I've stayed here every summer for years and as usual it was quiet, clean and convenient. My only complaint is that for some reason this year the staff fogged the room with stinky "air freshener" just before we checked in. Besides smelling bad it triggered an asthma attack. The irony here is that people come to Lake City for the... More

Thank you for staying with us again. We apologize for your discomfort upon checking in but we had to use deodorizer in your room prior to your arrival as the guests that checked out had some stinky feet after hiking the Colorado Trail. We were unaware that this commercial deodorizer recommended for hotels could cause an asthma attack as there... More

We stayed here while mountain biking the Colorado. We pedaled in from Slugmullion Pass and were welcomed with a complimentary glass of wine. WOW! Nice touch. There were complimentary sodas and water also. Our room was perfectly clean and comfortable. The owner and manager were very helpful for about town recommendations. We were not allowed to keep our bikes in... More

We offer complimentary wine, water or soda upon check-in because we know it is a long drive to Lake City, or in your case, an even longer bike ride on the Colorado Trail. We have lots of visitors coming off the trail and want to insure their stay with us is a pleasant one after all that hard work to... More

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.
