I asked for a room for 3 adults and was give a suite with two queen beds in the bedroom for a total of $175...it was a bit steep and I would have appreciated having a brighter room with just two queens instead. The room was very nice with upgraded bedroom furnishings and nice linens and had a full living... More

I've stayed in this hotel twice in the last six months. Both times were wonderful! The staff is extremely helpful, housekeeping does an outstanding job keeping the rooms clean, and the beauty of the surrounding area is unsurpassed for the price you pay to stay at this wonderful hotel.

The staff at Box Canyon Lodge is very accommodating and friendly. The rooms are clean and fairly priced. The location is perfect, nestled in the shadow of the surrounding snow capped mountains. I was co-leading a photography tour and every one of the participants enjoyed their stay. Well done Box Canyon! I'll be back.

Overpriced!! Room was too small. Not comfortable at all. Insufficient parking! Came back at 10:30 PM, and there was no parking available short of two blocks away. Two of the four hot tubs were not as warm as my bath water at home. The autocratic rules regarding smoking are too dictatorial. We were told that there is no smoking allowed... More

We couldn't ask for a nicer spot to stay. There is real pride in ownership at this Lodge. Everything is painted nicely. Flowers are growing and tended to and weed free. The mineral hot tubs are extra special. The motel unit was clean and nice. The door security cards are the best! Very quaint! It's a easy walk or short... More

We stayed at the Box Canyon Lodge for three days in mid August. Rooms were clean and comfortable. A light continental breakfast was served. The staff were pleasant, helpful and courteous. Loved the hot springs, very relaxing and the scenery was beautiful. We highly recommend Box Canyon Lodge and look forward to staying there again.
