“The view is wonderful and the staff aims to please”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2009

We spontaneously decided to stay in Grand Lake after our drive through the Rockies from Ft. Collins, CO. We passed several hotels as we approach the town, but were so glad we held out until we discovered this gem overlooking the lake. Husband and grandson fished from the dock. There was a patio table outside our room overlooking the lake and the management and staff bent over backward to accommodate us. I would visit again. Didn't hurt that there was a bakery next door and the hotel provided the fresh coffee and hot chocolate.

I requested a room with a good lake view and I believe we got one! (although they all have good lake views).
It was room number 24, upstairs and was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. There were two chairs outside each door on the shared walkway and humming bird feeders attached to the roof. It was so peaceful sitting and watching the lake and birds. Very convenient for RMNP.
The staff were friendly and complimentary coffee and hot chocolate was available in a room off the lobby by using your room key. There is a bakery next door open from 6.30am for breakfast. We also ate at Sagebrush and and Bears Den which were both good.

Very friendly staff, clean room and great location. I would use the term "down home feeling" to describe the Manager and facilities. We would definitely stay here again!

Hi,

I stayed with my husband two nights at the Western Riviera Lakeside Cabin (1bedroom). We really enjoyed our stay and the view at the lake was fantastic. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. The kitchenette was a plus but could be better furnished with kitchen utensils. All together we liked the property very much and it was a wonderful weekend getaway for us.

We just returned from a trip to the Rocky Mountains and stayed at the Western Rivera Motel for one night on our way out of the park. The room was a bit expensive ($120) for what you get. The room did have a nice view of Grand Lake but the room itself was low on the scale. The bed wasn't comfortable and the floor wasn't all that clean. The commode in the bathroom was squeezed between the sink vanity and tub. You could hardly sit on it comfortably. Wasn't worth the $120 per night - I was disappointed.
