We stayed here for one night on August 7th. We didnt have reservations but got a nice room. From what the owner told me the hotel was built in the early 1990s but looks only a few years old as it is very clean and well maintaied. The room we got was on the second floor and very large. The beds were very comfortable and the room nicely decorated.
After a day of hiking the hotel had a happy hour in the bar which was a nice treat before going out for dinner. The bar tender was very nice and the selection of local beers on tap was good.
When we finished dinner and when were done for the day we went back to the bar for a drink and to relax. There is a fresh popcorn machine which had some great popcorn.
The best part was when we went out on the deck for some air and to look at the town, the owner came out and gave us everything we need for smores. As we were sitting by one of those propane fire pits. She also asked if we want a blanket.
The friendly service at the hotel and the fact it was very cleaned and well maintained will make us come back next time we are in the area.
The location is just outside Grand Lake and Just outside RMNP.
