Do yourself a huge favor and go 10 minutes from Telluride and stay at the Angler Inn. It's quiet, clean, and affordable.

Rooms are decorated in a rustic decor which goes well with... More

I read the reviews, looked at the photos, studied the web-site; all before booking a room at the Angler Inn. I should have questioned the bare walls on the photos; a sign of the no frills philosophy behind this property. And that sort of describes what to expect: average service, average room, average price, slightly less than average breakfast. Call... More

If you absolutely must stay in the city of Telluride then by all means spend two or three times more for the convenience and deal with the crowd and parking issues. However if you don't mind (another scenic) twenty minute drive up Route 145 to just east of Placerville you will be rewarded with clean, comfortable accommodations with great beds,... More

The restaurant attached had a tremendous menu for dinner Large servings, great taste and reasonably... More

We spent the night at this friendly inn. The rooms were large with balconies and nice bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable with good linens. There is a restaurant with a diverse menu and the food was good. Breakfast was included.

This Inn was amazing. The view from our room was breath-taking. The room was so large along with the bathroom. It had a large balcony. The free breakfast was served in their restaurant which was very trendy. The staff was great!

This property is located 15 minutes from Telluride. We found this hotel to be neat, very clean and up to date. The unit we stayed in is average size for a two bed unit; however the bathroom was larger than normal which was so nice. The complimentary breakfast is served in the lodge style restaurant.
