This is a copy of what I wrote to the owner, received no response. We have been coming to this hotel off and on since the late 80's. It used to be our favorite place, but it is in need of maintenance and updating. Each time we come it is worse and now, it has gone down hill badly...shame on... More

The Water Wheel Inn looks very pleasant when you first arrive. Unfortunately that is an illusion. The decor is dated and tired, the rooms spartan. There are two entry doors, one to the outside and the other to an interior corridor. And when was the last time you had an actual, physical key (that didn't always work) to open the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights... the hotel has seen better days, but it was alright for 2 nights. It is on the Dos Rios golf course and our balcony looked out on the 4th hole. This turned out to be convienent because after 9 holes we were able to drive our clubs back to the room while the person with... More

I've stayed in several Colorado motels on road trips this summer, and some made me wish I'd booked a Holiday Inn. The Water Wheel really nailed it. It's dated, but in a charming way. The grounds, building, and room were spotlessly clean. The large room offered a fridge and microwave, decent toiletries, and nice towels. It had a back door... More

Arrived a few minutes after closing time, but the light was on and Dr Jim welcomed us. He offered a discounted price so we wouldn't have to keep driving to look for a better rate! Our room was without flaw: clean, new linens and the mattress was perfectly soft and supportive. Being picky about cleanliness I must stress this room... More

The beds were so very hard. The breakfast was nice and the size of the rooms was nice. It smelled a little musty. The staff was very friendly. They let us borrow a crib for the night at no charge which was very nice. It was far out of town and a quaint location.

A clean, comfortable room at a fantastic price! We stayed 1 night but we'll be back. Jim, the owner, was both king and knowledgable! His employee! Evan was also great! The breakfast was really good. The only place of improvement would be to upgrade the wifi to include a stronger signal. I couldn't even get on in the lobby! Other... More

We were in town for a square dance event and only spent one night, so we didn't get a chance to use all the amenities. But the staff was very pleasant, the rooms were nice and well maintained, the beds were quite comfortable, and the setting beautiful. I especially appreciated the heating/cooling unit that ran with no rattles or buzzes,... More

Stayed at Water Wheel Inn while on our fall vacation.. Nice place: country feel, quiet...serene...The hot tub needed more water but was still nice after a day of Motorcyle riding.. Ate at The Trough next door and was wonderful...Was able to do laundry here and they were very accommodating...Breakfast was awesome with pastries; cinnamon rolls, blueberry scones, pumpkin scones, coffee....
