It's a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the rooms but once inside it is well worth it. The hotel clerk asked us if we needed help with our luggage. Rooms are beautiful and comfortable and clean. We had a private patio. Dinner at the hotel was excellent. Breakfast was a real treat.

We always stay here when we are in the Telluride area. It's about a 15 minute drive to the beginning of town, but the rooms and restaurant are amazing. Always love this place! The decor is lovely, the beds are comfy, the wifi also works well. The bar is super cute as well, and their restaurant has some of the... More

Great Place! Beds are super comfortable, front desk / bar tender was a really nice guy, and hotel rustic and homey. We really enjoyed our selves! Pet friendly. People we met were great. It's the gate way to Telluride, scenery was beautiful. Defiantly be back.

My husband and I needed a restful night and are thankful we found the Anglers Inn. Customer service was exceptional starting with the young man who checked us in offering to help out with our luggage. Restaurant located there was convenient, the burgers were great and prepared as we ordered. That said the room was the best part. King size... More

My girlfriends and I were on an annual girls trip for 2015, and chose the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival. We found this small hotel just outside Telluride to stay for five nights. Telluride is super expensive, and this little gem is just right budget wise for us all. The room was clean, beds comfortable, and location is within a... More

We located the Angler Inn on TA for reasons: price, location away from Telluride, and TA ratings. It was a slam dunk on all three once we arrived. It is a nice, neat hotel with a different look on the outside from the norm and fits in with the scenery. Inside the room has a multitude of angles due to... More

We stayed 1 night at the Anglers. The decor was minimalist and light. The bathroom pale grey and white and looked very new. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. We stayed here rather than in Telluride as the hotels up there were very expensive, but the Anglers was $153 (£102) a night which I thought was on the... More

Nice getaway from the touristy towns that surround Placerville. Very quiet, nicely appointed rooms and a great restaurant downstairs. Great view of the San Juan Mountains. Short distance from Telluride and Ouray. Definitely worth the drive.

Nice stay close to Telluride but without all the traffic and tourists and at a much cheaper rate. We had a large room with a balcony and the bed was very comfortable. Our one complaint about the room was when someone left their room, their door slammed. Didn't have to drive to dinner as there was a restaurant on site... More

What breath of fresh air. If you are in Telluride or the surroundings it's really worth while the visit. Best pork belly bonds I had ever, great burgers. The menu its full of Surprises that result even better when they arrive to the table. Fresh - new- creative that is what comes to mind
