This hotel is amazing. The location could not be better. It's located right next to the free gondola that runs til midnight over to Mountain Village. Lift 8 (Oak Street) is right out back. You can rent skis in the building and they will have them waiting out back for you in the morning. There is also a ticket office... More

The only bad thing I can say about our recent stay at this hotel is that the room decor is a little dated. I imagine there are rooms that have been updated. If this is important to you, best to ask. That said, our King room #211 was great. Just under 500 sq ft we had plenty of room for... More

This hotel is in the heart of historic downtown and walking distance to all restaurants and bars and is literally at the base of the gondola and the locals chair lift. Great spacious rooms and the hot tub is on the 2nd level deck facing the box canyon with amazing views. This is where I'm staying from now on!

First, I will say - If you're deciding upon staying at either Mountain Village OR the Town of Telluride; staying in the town of Telluride is your best option. Camel's Garden Hotel is located right next to the Gondola, so it's extremely convenient for skiing. We walked outside, grabbed our skis from the Camel's Garden Ski Valet (super nice guys)... More

We are not skiers but wanted to check out Telluride and understood the Gondola to the Mountain Village was a key "must do." So we booked this hotel because it was at the base of the Gondola. Good choice. The room was above average and reasonably priced for the season. Plus, THEY ACCEPT PETS! We have a dog and very... More

Stayed for 2 nights at this lovely, convenient hotel. Never been to Telluride before. Note it is a long winding drive from Montrose and Grand Junction airports. Camel's Garden is right smack next to the Gondola to over to the slopeside village. Also there is one lift next to the hotel as well. Our visit was during the first week... More

You cannot be a great man, said Marcus Aurelius, if you want ski-in ski-out on lift 10. It shows a certain limpness of backbone, an enervation of the will to want to ski-in ski-out on lift 1. Real skiers ski lifts 8 and 9. And there is no ski-in ski-out on lift 8. It's too steep. They can't build hotels... More

Can't get a hotel any closer to the chair lift of gondola. The Camel's Garden is a perfect place to stay in Telluride, especially for us single skiers (i.e. not traveling with family). I stayed here on a 3-day flight layover, skied one day. The room I had is modestly upscale. Nice view of the gondola and ski trails. The... More

I took my son, daughter and law and grandson for a birthday weekend and to have the little one trick or treat Telluride. This hotel is amazing. It's not very busy as they are preparing for the upcoming ski season so it was not crowded. He loved the parking and getting stuff up to the room with a little one.... More

Location was perfect, right I the middle of Telluride and close to everything. The breakfast was really good with a lot of options. The room was spacious and cozy with a wonderful view do the creek. The staff was so helpful and friendly. I also got a massage at the spa and Jillian gave me a perfect treatment. I will... More
