“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The owners and manager of this place are fantastic.While I was there they were completely renovating room 12 because they got one bad review on here. It is not easy to keep an older motel in top notch shape but these folks do a fantastic job. There are very few hotels who would take online reviews as serious as these guys obviously did.

In addition it is a very quiet motel conveniently located and they have free Craisins!!!
Hot Sulphur Springs is a very small town so you do want to make certain you either have food with you or get to the Glory Hole restraurant before they close for the day.

Room Tip: Room 11 with the king bed and kitchen is my favorite so far.

I would not recommend this hotel. When we peeled back the bed covers, there were dead flies. The blanket had a questionable stain that hadn't been washed. The vinyl bathroom floor hides wood rot underneath (floor gives where it's soft). Ceramic coffee cups had lip marks. When we were ready to check out, we uncovered a dirty black sock left from a previous guest. The bed mattress was worn out. TV channels are local only which limits selection to approx. 8 channels. We couldn't leave fast enough. These are big gross out factors.

Room Tip: Best option: stay in Winter Park.

We hope our excellent reviews on this and other travel sites show that this was an isolated complaint.

This room was marked for renovations and should have not been booked. We strive for clean, quality, comfortable rooms and remain AAA Approved.

There has also been new management since the date of this guest's stay.

The best place to stay in Hot Sulphur Springs. I've stayed here several times -- the motel has tremendous character and is pet-friendly. It's cheaper and more welcoming than the resort where the hot springs are, and has discount day tickets for the hot springs. What makes the place great is the manager, Angus, who takes great pride in it.

The only reason you might ever want to stay in Hot Sulfur Springs, CO is because you have been turned into a limp noodle by soaking in the hot springs in town. With that in mind, staying at the Canyon Motel is perfect as it is close to the springs, allows dogs, and is reasonably priced. The town is right on the railway line and the trains coming through at night still wake you up at the Canyon but don't actually shake you out of bed like at the Hot Springs Hotel. Management is very friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable so go soak and enjoy a nice play to stay.

I had to go to Grand County for business and was a little concerned about what kind of accommodations I might find up there, particularly during hunting season. No need to worry. The motel was clean, comfortable and quiet. I booked the renovated king with the jetted tub so I can't speak about the rooms that are not renovated yet, but this one was quite nice. The only two issues I had were that the water in the bathroom didn't get hot enough to make using the jetted tub worthwhile and the remove for the tv only partially worked - I couldn't use it to change the volume, mute the tv, and turning it off was an adventure (it would turn itself back on). But this wouldn't be enough to keep me from getting back. Angus was outstanding--friendly and extremely helpful. Everything from bringing me a plastic spoon to letting me use his printer. The motel is right off the main road and directly across from the courthouse which was perfect for me. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: I don't know the status of all of the rooms so I don't know if they would be just as accepta...

We were looking for a good value motel for our stay on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park, and this motel was perfect. The gentleman working the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and was very clean. Bathroom only had a shower stall (no tub) but that did not concern us. Great value for the cost!
