I won't ever stay in the town of Telluride again. Angler Inn in Placerville (outside of Telluride) is now my go-to place when I'm in the area for skiing or festivals. Very friendly staff, updated spacious room, great continental breakfast and more.

My wife and I stayed at the Angler Inn for two nights and it was absolutely beautiful. It reminded us of Sedona, AZ because of the gorgeous red rocks. The included breakfast was tasty and filling, but it was the lunches and dinners they offered that were something special indeed. The menu changed depending on the fresh ingredients that were...

Stumbled upon this little jem while passing through Telluride on our way through Colorado. We were pleasantly surprised at the accomodations. After searching in Telluride for an overnight stay in the crowded downtown area, I became nervous about finding anywhere to stay. We found The Angler Inn on the way out of town and so glad we did. Very peaceful,... More

This hotel and bar/restaurant is an excellent choice for those wanting to find somewhere a little cheaper than the increasingly expensive resort of Telluride. About 12 miles down the mountain, the Angler Inn is an excellent base from which to ski Telluride, Silverton and even Durango in Winter. The staff at this hotel are some of the most friendly I...

We're local Telluriders & enjoy the Angler & it's location in the San Miguel canyon. And generally, the restaurant serves very good food, with good service, but they're not always open when they say they will be. Check their website, but to be safe you need to call as well.

The rooms are clean and updated, which is a must. My wife and I did not like the shower head....it had a weak, wide spray pattern and no option to adjust. Also be aware the front desk personnel only work limited hours. When we booked our reservation, the information we received said you could check-in until 8pm. After finishing a... More

Stayed for a night on a motorcycle tour of Colorado. Room was clean and comfortable. Beds were a pleasure to sleep in. Shower was fantastic. Glad that we picked the Angler inn, would stay here again for sure.

On a ski road trip, the Angler Inn offered comfortable clean rooms which you would expect. What was an extra bonus was the restaurant / bar at the front. It was an oasis between some place and the next. We went skiing the following day at Telluride, which was also a great little town and good size ski hill. Enjoyed... More
