“Its awesome :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Gorgeous property! We stayed here in the middle/end of July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was a wedding during the time we stayed, so in order to accommodate some of their needs, we were bumped up to a suite. That pleasant surprise aside, everything about our stay was enjoyable. Shay helped with our bags and dropped some local knowledge to help us get around. The lady (event coordinator?) in the lobby seemed to know more than the person in the tourist booth down in town. All of the amenities were top notch. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Some quick hits:
* Located in Mt Crested Butte...about 5 minutes uphill from town.
* Hiking trails on property are good. If you climb uphill (vs taking the lift and walking down), some of the trails may be a bit hard to follow.
*Mt CB is a real scramble up top. Real footwear is recommended vs the flip-flops and cowboy boots I saw.
* Coffee places on site close early...why?!
* $20/day parking....why? There's really no public option to get there.
* Food shopping in town is limited. You may want to hit Gunnison on the way in.
* Drink, Drink, Drink water if you arent used to elevation.
* Hard pressed to argue against CB being the wildflower capital of the US.

Thanks staff for making our stay enjoyable.

My wife and I stayed here on Sept 30 - Oct 01, which is clearly in the off season. We got a wonderful room with excellent views at a great price. Our room goes for more than double the price we paid if you stay in the peak season--and it would still be worth it. We had a refrigerator with freezer, a microwave, a convection oven, complimentary water bottles, coffee maker, plent of closet space, a nice desk--literally everything you could think of to ask for. Has the feel of an apartment. It's very easy to see why this is the number one rated hotel in the Crested Butte area. If I were coming back one day I'd make my reservation here without even checking other possibilities--it'd be a waste of my time. This is what I want.

My new husband and I spent a night at the Lodge at Mountaineer Square for one night during our honeymoon. We were on a tour of several Colorado ski towns and Crested Butte definitely outdid them all (including Aspen and Telluride)! The staff immediately made us feel at home, especially Toby at the front desk. Since we were visiting during the off season, he gave us some great dinner recommendations of places that would be open (Soupcon - check it out!). He even called to make a same-day reservation for us. We were upgraded to one of their deluxe studios and greeted with celebratory champagne and a wedding card with a beautiful hand-drawn illustration of the surrounding mountains. I'm from Colorado so I don't typically stay at ski resorts as I just drive home after a day on the slopes, but I imagine this hotel is in a league of it's own. Our room was one of the most spacious hotel rooms I've stayed in, with a full size refrigerator, washer/dryer, and his and hers closets. After a long weekend filled with family and friends, it was nice to turn on the fire place and relax on the sofa watching the football game. For a studio this place was huge! I've lived in two bedroom apartments that were smaller. We absolutely enjoyed celebrating our honeymoon in Crested Butte and hope to come back to the Lodge in the future. Thank you for making our stay so special!

The Lodge at Mountaineer Square has been our go-to accomodations in CB for mtn biking these past 2 summers. Very friendly staff, beautiful/large residences, and phenomenal location. This is not a hotel, but rather full residences that make it a perfect base camp where you can cook dinners, prepare lunches, wash laundry, and recover in the living area after a long day on the trails.

I loved this hotel and it's location. Almost every detail was covered except the one that I'm concerned with in the summer, that being heat. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, take away the fact that this place has an air conditioner but then deliberately disables it in the morning hours without warning. Imagine going to sleep in a a cool, pristine environment and then waking up at 2AM in an "Africa Hot" scenario with absolutely no control...welcome to the Mountaineers Lodge . Great place if you want someone else to control your environment. If you can differentiate the difference between 68 degrees and 90, never go here. Everything else was right, but the temperature control was absolutely offending.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room here in the summer...go for an room with no air conditioner so you will not...

LMSFOM, Front Office Manager at Lodge at Mountaineer Square, responded to this review, October 5, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our property. We strive to exceed our guests’ expectations, and we are disappointed that we failed to meet yours.

I would like to assure you that we do not “deliberately disable” the air conditioning in the hotel during the early hours of the morning. Although yours is the first complaint we have received regarding our air conditioning, we reviewed our system to ensure that the system was not turning off without our knowledge. As with all air conditioning units, it does cycle on and off as temperatures fluctuate throughout the day and evening to attain the proper temperature set point. However, we have found no evidence that the system was completely turned off in the early hours of the morning.

We feel that the issue with your room during your stay with us was more than likely due to the fact that the air conditioning was not actually turned on. Our thermostats can be challenging to operate, requiring that they be turned to “auto and cool” in order for the air conditioning to function in each unit. If the thermostat is set to “fan” or “heat,” the unit will remain warm, and temperatures can certainly rise at night if all windows are closed.

We certainly hope that you will allow us an opportunity to redeem your opinion of us by returning to stay with us next summer.

We stayed at many hotels during our trip, but this was by far the best one. We requested a mountain view and although we didn't have one in our first room, within 5 minutes, they had us booked in another room with fantastic views. The bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was large and the bathtub! I didn't want to leave!!! Nice refrigerator and microwave and plenty of water and drink selections, even some popcorn for the late night munchies!! Would stay here again in if we visit Crested Butte.

The lighting in the bathroom is a little low. They do provide a make-up mirror to help with the lighting. But that is my one and only complaint!!!

My wife, daughter and I stayed in a room in the residence section of this hotel and it was outstanding. Lots of room, nicely appointed, very comfortable and clean. There was a minor glitch at check-in when they had us booked for a different type of room than we had reserved through Hotels.com. Luckily I had printed a copy of my reservation and the front desk quickly straightened out the problem. Ruby was the housekeeper on our floor and she was extremely attentive, friendly and helpful. We stayed here in mid-August and the property was a bit on the quiet side- the hotel bar was closed and the on-site restaurant closed a bit early. Free parking is nearby so you can avoid the $20 parking fee if you don't mind walking a few hundred yards to your car (although that is probably more pleasant in the summer than in the dead of winter). The free local shuttle bus to town stops right at this property, so we took that into downtown Crested Butte for shopping and dining and that worked out very nicely. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it for a visit to Crested Butte.
