We spent 2 nights at Bear Creek Lodge in Unit 203B. This is a basic hotel room-king size bed,2 night stands but only 1 table lamp, 1 desk chair, no easy chair and an armoire with little use. We enjoyed the location with easy access to the gondola or within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The front desk is... More

We stayed in unit 310 and it was outstanding. This spacious 1 bedroom condo had just about everything we needed. Yes, there are 3 tvs just as advertised and the location in the lodge is a good one because you overlook the pool and have a bit of a mountain view. You can also see a beautiful sunset each evening.... More

Bear Creek Lodge is a great place. The staff are helpful, kind, courteous and prompt. They will shuttle you to the Gondola and away you go. Great place for families too. The pool is heated. Don't forget your swim suits. We have stayed here three summers in a row.

We stayed in Lodge #410 A during the 4th of July celebrations and had a fantastic experience! Bear Creek front desk staff were SUPER friendly and helpful, the shuttle service was always available and appreciated, the fitness center, the pool, hot tubs, and BBQ grill areas were fun to utilize, and the rooms were spacious and beautiful.

Had an amazing stay at Bear Creek Lodge for MountainFilm in Telluride. Morgan was very helpful. I left some things at the room and they mailed it back! The staff were very friendly, and even when we were staying on the first day of the season, they managed to accommodate our needs. The room was great, had a great time... More

Really loved the place! Booked on VRBO as one of the least expensive places and was I surprised. The accommodations were exquisite with lots of oak and brass. The staff was very knowledgeable in getting around and the best places to go. The shuttle service to the gondola was convenient and the drivers extremely helpful. I was especially surprised at...

This was a very clean and lovely place to stay. It was just the two of us and the lodge is really designed for families. It is a bit out of the way. If you are sensitive to altitude, it is too high for sleeping. Nice pool. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to... More

We booked through VRBO for our particular unit (412) and LOVED the unit, everything about that experience with Juli was fantastic. The Lodge itself is nice looking but all the promised "extras" like hot cookies, wine and cheese, etc were just not there. They did have coffee and hot chocolate. The gameroom is very small in the Lodge, and (not... More

Had fire alarm go off for two hours at 1:30am. No acknowledgement of it the next day. Wake up in the morning no hot water for a shower. Talk to front desk about our issues they say they are offering happy hour in the bar. What a joke. Would not stay here again
