Located literally at the foot of a mountain along an acequia and across from Boulder Creek and two parks, this modest, log cabin-set of buildings offers comfortable rooms with views. The bath facilities are adequate and the bed firm. We stayed in #10. Across the parking area in the office, one can find coffee, juice, drinks, fruit, and breakfast items. Parking near the cabin is easy, and the drive to businesses and public buildings under 10 minutes. It is also a good jumping off spot for drives to Nederland (18 miles), the Indian Peaks, Estes Park, and RMNP. The Motel reminds one of the family tourist courts that years ago one found along Route 66, but the quality is higher and the office staff gracious and helpful. Highly recommended for those who enjoy travel and the particulars of their destinations.
