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

Our long time friend who lives in a different State comes to Gunnison for 2-3 weeks every August to relax and escape the summer heat in Texas. He has stayed at Island Acres Resort for the last 5 years and highly recommended it to my wife and I. How pleased we are with his recommendation. We just returned from our... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at Island Acres. I like your room tip since our units are not cookie-cutter. We are always happy to explain in whatever detail is necessary how the units differ. We find that people needs are so different that there is no one perfect answer. We so happy... More

Options in Gunninson are limited. Seems like either a nice, clean inexpensive chain or, we thought, the Island Acres. Probably, though sadly, a bit happier with the former. The bed was marshmellowing - very clean - but way too soft. The kitchenette was daunting to use both because of the cleaning rules and, ironically, it didn't look that clean. It's... More

Dear Jon and other readers, Thank you for your feedback and the opportunity to discuss Island Acres. Our guest comfort and happiness is always our number one priority. Our beds are commercial mattresses with pillow toppers (not pillow top mattress.) I am happy to see that you appreciated our linen choices. About three years ago, we started triple sheeting, which...

We loved the "cabin cozy" feel of the room. Our room had plenty of space, a cute kitchen, comfortable king bed, and plenty of windows to open and let in the mountain fresh air. Across the drive was a pretty treed park for guests with picnic tables and a campfire. We really appreciated the quiet evenings with no traffic noise.... More
