My sister and i have stayed at the Cedar Lodge Motel several times over the years. It's right on the main street of Glenwood Springs and only a 40 minute drive to Aspen. They have both outdoor and indoor swimming pools, flowers and picnic benches, chairs outside every door which encourages neighborly chatting with other tourists and, best of all, they have Mary. Mary is the heart of the place -leaves the breakfast room open for some hungry kids, directs the maids in fluent Spanish, and models a service-oriented approach that's hard to beat. While not the newest motel, the rooms are roomy, clean, and well equipped. The WiFi works well and the whole place seems well run. And the price is very good.
