We stayed at Camel's Garden Hotel for a single night during a week-long summer vacation in Southwest Colorado. The hotel is well-located, literally just steps from the gondola over to Mountain Village. It has a convenient underground garage that does not require the use of a valet and that is free. Check-in and check-out were both totally smooth. Our room... More

Once in a while, a hotel "hits it out of the park." This is one of those places. Pamper yourself and stay here. The rooms are spacious, quiet, modern, and clean. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. The views even better. The breakfast is outstanding, and so is the Starbucks that goes with it.

We stayed one night at the Camel's Garden in July 2014. We came through on a motorcycle trip. The room was very nice and clean. The service was exceptional. There is underground parking, which is a bonus. We had a balcony, but it was not private. Also the view was of the trees right in front of the balcony instead... More

Stayed five nights in July and loved the place. Right next to gondola and one block from main drag in Telluride. Rooms were huge, nice big bathrooms, good bed, balcony. Continental breakfast and a nice common area. There is a bar/restaurant downstairs and a spa. Only complaint we had was the multitude of delivery trucks and shuttle buses on the... More

Very nice hotel. Rooms are specious, clean, and well maintained. Breakfast was good, coffee always available. One thing I have to emphasize is hotel staff. They were very frendly, always smiling and always asking if they coud help. Jacuzzi and sauna were nice addition. Hotel is at very good location, right across from gondola.

We stayed three nights in July of 2014, in a king suit. The room was very clean and spacious. Our family of four was very comfortable. The view from the large balcony was beautiful, it was a great place to wake-up with coffee in the morning and relax with a glass of wine in the evening. We had mountain views... More

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
