Nice hotel with two exceptions: Our bed linens, including pillow cases, smelled vaguely smoky. I didn't sleep well at all because of the smells. The hot tub, part of our reason for booking here, but out of order during our stay.

Next, I would like to sincerely apologize for the smell in the bed linens that is absolutely not acceptable. Unfortunately, from time to time guests like to disobey our nonsmoking policy... More

I liked this place. Quick check-in, comfortable room, nice pool/hot tub, and a relatively complete breakfast. We got a 20% off Trip Advisor special which made is irresistable.

We really enjoyed our experience at Stay Wise. We were late finding a room and the owner was super friendly and accommodating. The entire place was clean and new feeling. Brand new tv's in every room. Cool new carpet. Quiet. No complaints about our stay at all! We will definitely stay there again when traveling through Montrose.
