We had the misfortune to break down in Aspen and needed a last minute hotel while the car was being fixed. The auto bill ended up being sky-high, so we were looking for budget options. While calling around, we mentioned this to the person who answered here. She turned out to be the owner and was so friendly and understanding that she knocked a large portion of the price off the room! When we arrived, we were given a large room with a small TV with cable and a mini fridge. The bathroom was not en suite, but a sign on the door said it was for our room only.
The shower was very tiny (it is a very old home after all) so shaving my legs required some daring feats of acrobatics. They had a nice strong blow dryer available as well. Our stay included breakfast which was very good (cold cereal, oatmeal, bagels, English muffins, yogurt, bananas, and coffee - though I agree with another poster that if you like your coffee strong you might want to grab a cup somewhere else). They also allowed us free reign in the full kitchen to use the fridge, oven, microwave, spices, etc etc.
Overall very friendly and charming with an at-home feel. A 5 minute walk and you're in the heart of Aspen.
