“Just the Ticket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

This is an old, but cute, clean, well maintained motel in the middle of Granby. Comfortable bed, friendly owners and patrons. I would stay here again.

I came here with my daughter and her fiance on a short tour of this part of Colorado over the Labor Day weekend. This a small, quiet, affordable motel with 12 units. It has small, but adequate, nice rooms of knotty pine equipped with refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was spotless. Flatscreen TV and a table make these rooms comfortable and usable. Internet is available and readily accessible. You can sit out on the little porch in front of your room and enjoy the vista to the west. They provide coffee and toast, bagels or pastry for breakfast, not gourmet, but appreciated and convenient.

The price was reasonable. They do not allow dogs.

Another cute, 50s-60s style place for those of us who value uniqueness over corporate sterility. This place has both neon and knotty pine. Billing itself as a "bed and bagel" it comes complete with bagels in the morning and cute little breakfast nooks in the rooms. They have Swedish tv! I kid you not. Didn't know there were Swedish cable channels. On the down side, no lotion or shampoo so you can't have everything.

It was clean, well kept on the outside .I did have my own bedroom (snorer) which was great. TV in the main room was positioned opposite the bed on the side wall in the corner which made watching TV awkward. You had to lay at the foot of the bed at an angle. No AC ,it wasn't needed at night ,it was 37 the next morning, and quite brisk in the room that morning because the fan was still in the window and air came through. Breakfast was good ,several kinds of bagels, bananas, juice and coffee. Plates and trays to carry it back to your room and a table in the to eat on. That was nice. The room also had a desk for using your laptop. Walls were thin, and you could hear people talking but a small table fan masked the noise at night. Good location, within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Very good for an older motel.

Motel chosen because of good reviews on Tripadvisor and at the end of a very long day of driving all we wanted was a comfortable bed. No complaints about the room at all and would stay here again. Breakfast was a bit sparse.

So glad you had a comfortable stay after a long day of traveling. We try and make our guest happy while they are in town and offer only a very light breakfast. We advertise as "Bed & Bagel" so our guests don't think they will have a continental breakfast. Bagels, juice, sweet rolls, bananas, and coffee to get you down the road.
Again, thank you for staying with us. Hope to see you again if you are in Granby.

I chose this MOTEL because of the good reviews on on tripadvisor.com. I can't recall the last time that I've stayed at a motel (you park outside of the door that enters your room directly from the outside). I was so pleased to see the room was spotless. My clean-freak mother would stay here. As she would say, it's not about the age of the place so long as everything is in working order and spotless. it wasn't exactly a deal though at $90 a night. The breakfast was so-so in selection but better than nothing.

So glad you enjoyed your stay! July is such a beautiful time of year in Granby.
We work hard at having a clean motel so thank you so much for letting people know.
We try and advertise our breakfast as Bed and Bagels, that way our customers know what to expect. We are a small motel and try and offer everything we can to make our customers happy. A light breakfast to get you started and down the road.
Thank you again for taking the time to write a nice review.

We stayed one evening at the Trail Rider's Motel. We really enjoyed the retro-style of the motel and were happy to have the bagels, V-8 juice and banana breakfast before we headed out for our return trip home. I agree with the review that the walls don't afford a lot of privacy. We heard a very intimate exchange in the room adjacent to ours, and I am sure they heard us snoring too. However, the bed was comfortable and we slept well. I would also caution that, although the rooms are well equipped, there aren't hair dryers. I guess it has been way too long since I stayed at an older establishment, and foolishly expected that there would be hair dryers. We were going to a wedding and I was glad I was able to get by with only a touch up with my curling iron. Otherwise I would have looked like a drowned rat.

So glad you had a comfortable stay. Thank you so much for letting other people know. We really appreciate the time you took to write a nice review.
My husband and I have owned The Trail Riders for 20 years. We have tried to upgraded everything we can. We do have hair dryers available, but you must ask for it in the office. It is classic knotty pine motel, and yes you are right, it is not sound proof, so we ask all of our guests to please snore softly!
We hope to see you again if you are in the Granby area.

We stopped here for one night. It was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Not a bad price. Loved the little details. Also loved sitting on the boardwalk front porch outside of our room looking at the mountains. Breakfast to go was a pleasant surprise. Different bagels (their sign says "Bed and Bagels", HA!). Very good coffee! They also offered flavored creamers, orange juice, V-8 juice ( we really appreciated that), & bananas. When we come through this way again, we will definitley stop here.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed Room 8.

We are a mom and pop motel, but try to offer everything we can to make our guests comfortable. The Bed & Bagel is new this year and seems as though many of our customers really enjoy it. A good cup of coffee, something light to eat, and you're ready for your next adventure.
Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see again you when you are in the Granby area.
