Look for the forest service sign with knife and fork symbol, as there are no other signs letting you know you're almost there. the reason I think - it is in a national forest. Beautiful, natural setting, pet friendly which I appreciated. can hear river rushing, even though it is across the highway, 1 minute walk. A few things to... More

My husband and I arrived after a white-knuckle drive from Durango (or what we thought of as white-knuckle - I'm sure the locals are pretty used to driving snow, ice, rain and the steep drop off the side), but I digress. The hotel could not have been lovelier and Ian at check in could not have been more welcoming. We... More

This was a decent deal for the money. The Angler Inn is about 10-15 minutes away from Telluride; just far enough away but not too far to be inconvenient. The building and property are beautiful with nice wood beams. There were things I would change but I would give the Angler another shot. Pros: Price, the rooms and common areas... More

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.
