A former miners' lodge, Elk Mountain has a great historic feel in a clean environment. Other pros: the neighborhood setting that was still in close proximity to the main street, the friendly and available staff (desk closes at 9 pm), the free cruiser bikes for use around town, free shared computer and wifi access, very clean and comfortable bedding, and the nice breakfast selection, which included one main hot item (tex-mex casserole one day, pancakes and sausage the next and potato and egg casserole on our last day), fresh fruits, cereals and breads. We were there in the off-season, but I would recommend staying there in ski season as well. There are buses to and from the mountain, and the historic area has much more appeal than the sterile environment of the huge ski resorts.
Some things people might find as cons are being an older lodge, you can expect smaller rooms and some noise issues, but we found that all the guests were all respectful. Be sure to ask about the room you book and about the available rates. My husband handled the reservations and check out. After we left (my fault for not asking before), I asked about the rate. I was a bit dismayed when I learned what we paid, because I overheard another guest in a room with the same sized-bed (though I cannot confirm whether it was the same-sized room) quoted a price $40 less than our rate. Just know that different rooms carry different rates and inquire about the same.
I would happily return to this great option in CB.
