“Weekend getaway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Gorgeous scenery, amazing room (room 10), fantastic getaway location! A little tricky to get to, but once you're there, it's a great place to be for a weekend! I went there on a couple's weekend trip. Very spacious room with a romantic view and a very friendly staff. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 10 has a hot tub big enough for two!

I've read the reviews, and need to review. We have stayed at The Starlight Lodge for 15 years, several times a year. The location is perfect, the prices are more than fair, and if you want to stay in a chain hotel then you should. Andrew, Mary and Theresa are willing to do anything to make your stay pleasant. Are the rooms older? Yes....Are they clean? YES...if you want a sterile cold environment, then pay double and stay at a chain hotel. We stay in the same room, several times a year and won't stay anywhere else. The suites have two separate rooms with a shared bathroom, includes a microwave and fridge. Perfect for our family of four who needs a little extra space for the growing boys. Give the Starlight a chance, we did (15 years ago)...and feel like family while we're there! Easy walk to great restaurants and the pool!

Room Tip: If you need a little more space, consider paying a little more for a room in the new section. Well...

I have to rate this place poorly because I just really didn't enjoy my stay, but I'll let you be the judge of whether it will work for you. Here are my "The Good" and "The Bad" lists:

"The Good"
1. The location is awesome, within walking distance of the hot springs pool and food.
2. It's close to the highway and easy to find.
3. The bathroom was clean, the water pressure was good, and there was plenty of hot water.
4. No bedbugs.
5. Ample parking in the lot right in front of your door.
6. I slept well - the bed and pillows weren't too lumpy or anything.
7. The bed sheets and towels were clean.
8. Small bars of soap were provided.

"The Bad"
1. The woman who checked us in was very surly (and wore a see-through shirt...)
2. The ice machine was broken while we were there, and the tap water didn't really get cold.
3. We paid $90 for one night - not exactly a cheap place.
4. The room had dirty carpet.
5. The room was decorated with a giant wall decal of fall aspens in Colorado, but it was very old and peeling off. On top of it, someone splashed what looked like soda all over the wall, and it wasn't cleaned up. Ewww.
6. The comforter and towels were very old, and the comforter wasn't particularly clean.
7. The bed was also old and kind of saggy (but not too terrible - see above).
8. There was no shampoo/conditioner/lotion provided.
9. The room smelled faintly like smoke, even though it was listed as non-smoking.
10. An ashtray and matches were provided in the room, even though hit was listed as non-smoking.
11. It was easy to hear anyone loud outside (though this didn't bother us).

It's possible that we did not have a renovated room, but overall, I just didn't enjoy my stay. I won't be returning...

This place has both good and bad issues. The good was the price and walking distance to Glenwood Hot Springs and the Colorado Hotel. The bad are very close to road noise, my room had something directly outside coming on and off every 15 seconds. I would keep looking next time. The owners were nice enough, but some things need attention.

Room Tip: You can't get far enough away from the traffic noise

We stayed here for one night recently because it was crazy busy in town and the first 3 hotels we stopped at were full. We should have kept looking. There was no air conditioning and the sheets looked dirty and my daughter found a bug when we turned down the bed. At $99/night I would not call this inexpensive for what you got which was a dirty old hot room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I really enjoyed the staff. They were very friendly.

My room was a few rooms away from the busy street, and I could hear cars passing. I could also hear other guests outside and in their rooms more than I could at other hotels.

I got a good sleep, however.
