Stayed here recently while my son was in school at CU. I tend to seek out older properties in Colorado for the nostalgia they offer. This motel has character but is sorely in need of attention. The cabin I stayed in was probably one of the original cabins built in the '40's. It was very basic, moderately clean but very worn. The telephone was dead, the air conditioner output was musty, the lamp wouldn't work and room cleaning was spotty at best. The kitchenette furnishings provided a challenge to prepare any kind of meal. But, the location is wonderful, peaceful and relaxing. Owners, please spend a little money in clean up and updating this property. I would probably stay here again hoping some changes can be made before I arrive next year.
