This inn offers a choice of camping in their back yard for a very reasonable rate. After several days of motorcycle travel, it was nice to have a clean bathroom with hot shower and placed to plug in battery chargers. Best part was being able to walk a few blocks into town for food. Good grocery store and cafes. I... More

The furniture and the decor of the rooms is quite upscale...when was the last time you had real wood doors....nice! Beds very comfortable with lots of really nice pillows...hubby said... More

I had to travel to Norwood for work recently and I was definitely a little nervous about where I would have to stay in such a small town. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was small but it was clean and nice. The bathroom was a little small but there was a refrigerator and a microwave which was a nice... More

Norwood is small. The BackCountry Inn is not a bad place for a single night - as long as you have quiet neighbors. Walls are VERY thin. You will hear all sounds in adjacent rooms. Wifi VERY unreliable - couldn't use it several days - slow and couldn't even log in. Nice, cozy room. No table at all. No shampoo... More

We stopped here on our way south as there isn't much accommodation in this area. Backcountry Inn seemed to be the best choice. It looks like an old motel that has been re-faced and updated. It looks very nice from the outside, but the rooms are really small. Our room had a very nice fridge and microwave, but no table... More

Not sure what brings many folks to Norwood, CO but should you be in the neighborhood, this is a great place to spend the night. It is a newer, clean motel. Rooms aren't big but have everything you need. Nice little fridge and microwave in the room, plus warm chocolate chip cookies in the lobby. Telluride is 35-40 minutes away.... More

We stopped here for the night on our way to Moab. We were delighted by cookies and coffee in the lobby. Our room was clean and comfy. There were a set of bunk beds in the room,as well as our king bed, which results in a smaller space. But it would be great if you have kids. No desk and... More

Norwood CO is about 500 people but has a very good quality motel. There are only 10 rooms but they are very clean with comfortable beds. Bathroom was clean also with plenty of hot water and towels (as well as rags for cleaning window, etc). Reception was great and offered home baked cookies and fresh coffee. There is no restaurant...

I stayed at the BackCountry Inn for 5 days in April of 2014. I honestly did not expect the quality of the hotel that I found. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The wifi worked well and there was even Direct TV with multiple movie channels. The room had plenty of beds but did lack a desk. I would... More

I am wrapping up a long weekend at the BackCountry Inn. I was looking for a good budget option that would allow me to ski at Telluride over the president's day weekend without having to mortgage my apartment, and I came across the BackCountry Inn in Norwood. They were able to arrange a three night stay and a three day... More
