The room is a 2 nite minimum but well worth it. It's pet friendly & spacious. King size comfortable bed with microwave, fridge, stove, well stocked kitchen, nice sitting area outside & right across the street from the Gunnison river events. Would stay here again.…

The rooms have a cabiny feel and the price was appropriate ($79). It was nice to have a kitchenette and the grounds are nice. Beds are clean and comfortable. However, the room was pretty dirty and smelly. It took a day to air out. Dusty, cobwebs, and a kitchen I would have liked to scrub down. Put more effort into... More

The Island Acres is a Motor court from the sixties, with retro style, clean rooms and parklike grounds. We like the shaded porch seating and a fully stocked kitchen. Just bring food. Even room and grills a for an outdoor BBQ or picnic. Wifi is slow and the grounds can get busy. We really like this place. On a few... More

Rented 2 cabins for several days last week. Had nice king-size beds. Very clean. They had everything you need including small charcoal grills. Even sat out marshmellows with sticks for us to roast. Had firewood and a pit out front.

Our second visit to Island Acres was in July 2014 was as good as the first! Clean rooms, group campfire and a couple of the guests brought their guitars and offered the entertainment. It was outstanding. The whole crowd wandered up to the road and watched the 4th of July fireworks from a distance. It was fun. This year we... More

I stayed at unit 18 for two nights last month. Pro's: drive up parking, safe and convenient location with excellent lighting, clean interior, and comfy beds. Con's: unit felt small and cramped, walls are thin, awkward layout of interior - it was hard to eat and watch TV at the same time. In room WiFi was sketchy at best and... More

We happened upon the Island Acres Resort by chance. When we drove by, I saw the neon lights and knew we had to stay here! The rooms are VERY clean. This room was nicer than any room at the big name motels. We even had a kitchenette in it. Everything was spotless!!! Sometimes with the older motels, there is a... More

The prices are quite good, and the staff is excellent. These are truly wonderful people. We always stay in a kitchenette and are more than satisfied. The location is great for sightseeing the area. Very east to get to the Black Canyon, Crested Butte, West Elk Loop, fishing, hiking, etc. I love the 60's era design. The owners really care... More

Stayed here for two nights in August. A throwback to 60's era roadside hotels. I reserved a king bed with a kitchenette. Was nice to be able to cook a meal since I was alone. Accommodations were good and it was quiet. Laid back attitude and centrally located to the attractions of the Gunnison Valley.

We reserved 4 rooms here in late July, 2014, for 10 different family members, ranging from age 10 to 80, and we stayed 3 nights. The owner Pam was terrific about seeing that we had just the right accommodations for each family. Loved the comfy beds, perfect little kitchens, excellent tv reception, handy location where some of our fishermen could... More

Dear Mona, Thank you for taking the time to write about your family reunion here in Gunnison and at Island Acres. We think this area hard to beat when it comes to hosting a family reunion. While we have made additions to Island Acres to make it more comfortable for reunions, we have additional 'reunion friendly' features planned in future... More
