Stayed at this Inn because it was on the third green/fourth tee of the Dos Rios golf course, where we were playing in a tournament. The Inn has your typical motel-type accommodations (two double beds, desk, chairs, fridge, microwave, bathroom and shower). Easy to walk to the course, pick up a cart, come back to your room and grab all... More

Dear 50bdaycelebrant, We're glad that you enjoyed the location of our inn and that it was convenient for you as you golfed. We really enjoyed having all the tournament golfers in our hotel, as you were all so kind. The staff at the Water Wheel Inn looks forward to seeing you all next year!

We have been regularly staying at the Water Wheel Inn in the beautiful mountain country of Gunnison, Colorado since 2010, and have come to love the shaded and watered beauty of the motel and its location. The majestic cottonwoods and the next-door golf course only add to the charm of the well-appointed, quiet setting. The rooms are always clean, spacious,... More

Decent room, clean sheets, and friendly staff. The front desk folks helped literally find a decent restaurant where we had the best steaks. Only complaint was smell of nicotine in nonsmoking room. Otherwise very nice stay

The Water Wheel Inn was a surprising find. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. We had passed by this place on a couple of occasions and thought it might be a good place to try, and we were correct. Will definitely stay again next trip to Gunnison.

We always stay at the Water Wheel for our annual fishing trips...at least two or three times a year. The rooms are clean and the location is great. The only reason I didn't give it a five is that the lobby isn't open when we leave to go fishing...so no breakfast. Other than that it is fine.

We stay at the Water Wheel when we come to Gunnison to visit our son who wrestles for Western State Colorado University. It's an older hotel, but the rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and accomodating.

The reason I gave this place a 2 is because it is so absolutely quiet, and that's the only reason. The AC did not work and by the middle of the night, the room was a bit swampy. After showering the next morning, I noticed bites all over my stomach, neck, forehead and ears. BEDBUGS!! Try wearing a motorcycle helmet... More

I came to run a race in Gunnison. I brought my dog. The accommodations were clean and pleasant. The staff went out of their way, including opening up the breakfast earlier in the morning to accommodate the runners. They even gave one runner a ride to the start of the race! Overall, a very good experience.
