The Camels Garden Hotel is by far the best place to stay in Telluride. We stayed during the Wine Festival and had easy, convenient access to events both in town and the Mountain Village. Our room was sparkling and beautiful, we had a great continental breakfast, and none of this is to mention the spectacular view from the second-floor outdoor... More

We've been staying at The Camel's Garden for a number of years. The rooms are comfortable and spacious enough. Sadly, over the past few years, it seems to be going downhill. Often the blinds don't work, the fireplaces have problems, the furniture and paint are chipped and worn. The price of a standard room during major festivals is significantly over-priced.... More

Right at the base of the gondola. Can't beat the local. Nice big room, great bathroom. The hot tub was to die for. Huge with a great view of bridal falls. Bed and pillows were good. Breakfast was very good. The only complaint was the front desk was not very friendly, but they were not rude either. Lots of parking... More

My son's were traveling to Telluride to paraglide off the mountain and had to be at the gondola at 7:00 A.M. Camels Garden Hotel was right at the gondola entrance. The hotel had underground parking, was clean, and had a fantastic continental breakfast. I've read were other reviews that mentioned that the "breakfast" was average. It's not meant to be... More

Stayed at this hotel recently - great location (convenient to Telluride restaurants and to the Gondola to go to Mountain Village). Great parking underneath the hotel - felt very secure. The room was large and very clean and nicely updated. The bathroom was spacious and the room felt comfortable and of high-quality. The staff was friendly (I never saw the... More

We stayed at the Camel's Garden for two nights in June 2014. The location is outstanding for both summer and winter activities. You are right in town at the bottom of the Gondola and are very close to shopping, dining, etc. The staff was very helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was average with typical continental fare. There... More

We spent our anniversary at Camel's Garden Hotel. We enjoyed the extra large outdoor hot tub and the double-wide soaking tub in the room. There were always plenty of fresh towels around. The sound of the river right by our patio was a real treat. Simple check in and out. Very friendly staff and overall vibe was peaceful. We will... More

We are budget conscious travelers and this was an online booking, so I had no idea what to expect. We were VERY pleasantly surprised with this hotel for the price. The room is huge, very clean, and as nice as any of the average 'big-city chain' hotels. Ski lifts are just outside our window, though they're closed now for the... More

This was the BEST Groupon deal I ever bought! Telluride was on our bucket lists-so it was a perfect pick! We went during the 'in-between' season--after the summer festivals & before ski season. October in the Rockies is beautiful & not crowded. I'd love to return for either of those peak seasons, tho. The staff was personable & helpful for... More

The Camel's Garden is possibly the most convenient place to stay in the main part of town. It is right next to the ski lift and a couple of really good restaurants. Our condo was excellent and the kitchen was pretty well stocked so we could have big skier's breakfasts instead of the minimal fare offered as the morning free... More
