Stayed in this wonderful, old hotel on a road trip. Got a suite room on the top floor overlooking the depot area. The room was nice, I think it was everybody's favorite of the trip. The suite was only slightly more than a standard room so it was a no brainer for us. Had plenty of room and no problems... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Colorado. I enjoy historic buildings and the rate was cheaper than many of the modern hotels in town. The lobby is interesting, very high ceilings and historic decor. The elevator is tiny, just about enough room for two people and luggage. We were there on a weekend and parking outside... More

Picked this place as other hotels were full. Was disapointed with lack of wifi in our room. I had to haul myself down to the lobby to access wifi. Not to mention the dinghy elevator and rustic rooms. Not the place to be if you are expecting to have internet connectivity during your stay.

We booked this hotel based on the ratings. Unfortunately, we got a room on 3rd floor facing Central Ave. It is very very noisy and I would not recommend this hotel. You can hear all the foot steps about you too. It was refurbished in 2002 and forgot to put in sound proof windows. I agree that the Wi-Fi is... More

For what the nightly rate is at this property one would expect staff to be a little bit more friendly...the cable did not come in well at all, not only in my room but in two other rooms that various family members had stayed in. There was also food left in the fridge and when the front desk was notified... More

Bathroom was almost bigger than the Bedroom. No phone in the room, literature boasted a phone in every room. TV needed Rabbit Ears only had reception on 3 channels and they were fuzzy at best. Elevator is slower than molasses going uphill during the winter. If you're looking for quaint, historical tiny hotels this is your winner.

We stayed for one night in August. The history and atmosphere were great as was the greeting and assistance from the staff. However, the rooms are run down and the bed linen looked dirty. The TV didn't work. The traffic stopped right outside our window and made a great deal of noise as they revved away. We would not stay... More

My family and I (three children, my mother and brother) made a reservation at this hotel on August 4th. We got there at 1130 at night because of traffic on our journey from Colorado Springs, but we had called ahead and the lady said it would be fine. The hotel was in a bad neighborhood (police in front, homeless people... More

A beautiful historic old hotel, the owners have lavished great care (and expense) in restoring it, but it is just a hair short of perfect. I love the bar, I love the location, I love the obvious attention to detail in the furnishings and stained glass...

We stayed here in July and had a great time, the room was excellent, complete with lounge area. Not much space for hanging clothes but that wasn't too important for a 3 night stay. Staff very helpful and breakfast great value. We had a ball during Frontier Days!
