We stayed here at the midpoint of our Collegiate Peaks Loop hike, and they could not have been nicer. Our rooms were roomy, clean and quiet. They went out of their way to make us feel at home, picking us up on Monarch Mountain, even taking us to Salida to get dinner and resupply.

We stayed at this lodge last week while traveling through the area. We were headed over the summit towards Gunnison, but had to turn back due to poor weather and impending darkness. We stopped at the Monarch Mountain Lodge and were pleasantly surprised at how nice and affordable the rooms were. We really enjoyed our stay and a big thanks... More

I have driven by this lodge many times and often wondered what the inside looked like. It is an older lodge and in the process of renovation and still needs some "tweaking", but our overall experience in this place was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, the views from our room and the restaurant were outstanding, and our room... More

Received great customer service. The lady at the front desk when we arrived was very helpful and offered us a great rate. We were headed to the pool and one of the employees has just locked it up for the night but unlocked it so we could use it. We really appreciated the friendliness and willingness to make our stay...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Monarch Mountain Lodge. The staff are very friendly, and the rooms are amazing. There are also some breathe taking views to wake up to. The restaurant, Cliff Hanger's, that is at the lodge is a great place to eat and very convenient since you don't have to drive anywhere. If you choose to... More

The hotel is undergoing renovation. The room we got, was newly renovated but the mattresses made you feel as if you were going to fall off if you lied on the edges. The comforters were for full size beds only on queen size beds. The curtains weren't hooked properly and had no way of opening or closing them without manually... More

We were greeted by very friendly staff who took us to our room. Our room was very clean and quite which made for a good night sleep. I would recommend staying here. It is also pet friendly... Beautiful panoramic view from the restaurant which truly is breathtaking!

I saw the mixed reviews of this hotel and I was a little unsure of staying there, but what a surprise. The hotel is being renovated. We had a brand new room with new carpeting and furniture. The restaurant was open and the food was very good. The kids had a great time in the pool and my wife and... More

None of the things advertised were at this hotel. Staff lied right to our faces about the amenities. Huge rip off. No pool. No hot tub. No food. No Wifi. Huge gap under the room's door so you can hear everything. Staff is extremely rude.

This hotel was closed for several years and recently reopened. Unfortunately, it re-opened too soon! The rooms we stayed in had new carpet, paint and bedding. The heat worked. The staff was friendly. That's about it, though. If you read the hotel description online you will be sadly disappointed with the lack of amenities. Pool? - nope. Hot tub? -... More
