If all you care about is a cheap place to sleep and can tolerate rude and uncaring treatment at the front desk, then this is the spot for you. Typical and bland décor. It is fairly clean though. We wouldn't stay again. Spend a little more and find a nicer spot if you can.

Seems like we were doing them a favor by staying there, only 5 rooms were rented, I expected better service. Had to wake them up at 6:45 to get what they called breakfast - coffee and some pre-packed pastries. I will not stay there again - I will drive further to get better service.

This is a decent motel in the middle of the town of Winter Park. Very close drive to Winter Park ski resort and about a 15 minute drive to Ski Granby. Since the motel is in the middle of town it's walkable to all of the shops and restaurants. The rooms will seem to be a bit dated but the... More

The owner demanded an extra $20 for a bed with 2 rooms, the room smelled like urine and there was an 8X8" stain on one of the fitted sheets. Hair was to be found all around bathroom. Fridge was luke warm. The complex is very old (80s) with peeling paint in pool/hot tub, safety features - if you have kids... More

We just returned from Winter Park, CO to spend time with our grandson while his mom & dad skied at Winter Park. We were looking for a location that was right on Highway #40 in the middle of the town of Winter Park (NOT, at the mountain). We wanted to be close to shopping and dining so that we could... More

We just stayed at the Sundowner Motel this past weekend, Friday and Saturday night, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was simple, but clean, older, but conveniently located next to Deno's and across the street from "the mall". The staff was very polite, and placed our party of 8, in near by rooms. All and all, especially for the price,... More

I had a great time at Winter Park and the Sundowner is the perfect place to stay if you are staying in town. I had a queen room. It is not large but was perfect for me. It had everything I needed and then some. It was clean and well lit, had a table and chairs, a desk, a microwave,... More

The Sundowner offers exactly what I expect from a motel: excellent location in the heart of downtown, definitely clean rooms, friendly staff and very good rates. I spent at the end of september 2013 4 nights in two different rooms both located at the second floor and I have to admit that my stay was better than expected. Whenever it... More

We had to leave our vacation lodge on the Big Thompson near Estes Park due to the flash flooding. Drove out over the mountains and ended up in Winter Park where we had to wing it for a room. The hotel is older but is well-maintained, clean and comfortable - not a Hilton or Marriot but for 59 dollars you... More

As the name suggests, this did turn out to be a good value Hotel. We chose this hotel for it's location near the Rocky Mountains/Estes Park. The town is scenic and peaceful with good cool weather in the summer - when we visited. The hotel rooms were very well thought out and it had microwave and refrigerator (see photos). There... More
