Over priced and pictures do not match lodge. From start to finish horrible experience. When I checked in the woman at the counter was on the phone with her boyfriend and acted like I was ruining her night. Then her mom called and she started yelling at her mom in front of me, awkward. She gave me a key and... More

We made reservations by phone from the road, being aware we were running out of options and daylight. It's quite a climb to this little beauty, but we made it around 5PM, just before the internet went out and they couldn't check ANYBODY in. However, we were first in line and a LONG line formed behind us. Time passed. But... More

We really enjoyed staying here even though the Lodge is currently under renovation. The secluded location in the mountains is beautiful. We slept very well in our new and very comfortable beds, with new white comforters. Our room had a mountain view. We had breakfast in the restaurant each morning - also quite good, and we enjoyed watching the hummingbirds... More

I spent the night here while passing through on the Colorado Trail last month. The owners picked us (3 smelly backpackers) up at Monarch Pass and rode us down to the Lodge. The next.day they had a member of the staff take us back to the Trail, saving us who knows how much trouble trying to hitch. The Lodge looks... More

My 3 is not because this is a bad place, it is just not a 4 or 5 star hotel. It probably was in its hey day. The hotel reminded me a bit the the Grand Budapest Hotel (movie) with-out the exquisit brilliance and elegance. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We had a mountainview suite. The food was...

I knew it was a work in progress, finally settled in after 2 room changes because of amenities. The hotel doesn't have beautiful mountain views. Rooms are dingy. The dressers in the rooms are full of junk. I was disappointed that booking.com listed air conditioning but there was none which made it difficult to sleep. Adjoining room and room doors... More

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...
