“Budget friendly, but needs some updating and a few repairs.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Front desk staff were nice. Breakfast was very good with hot and cold options. Lobby nicely decorated. Ice machine did not work. Large gap under the door of our room let cold air in. Heater worked but very noisy. Nice amenities in the bathroom. Bed was comfortable with nice linens.

Room Tip: Make sure to find one that doesn't have a gap under the door.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had just finished a long day's drive over the mountains, on Route 50, and were exhausted. We drove past many chain hotels and motels, and none of them looked very quiet, let alone affordable.
We happened upon a humble-looking building; it had the right name to fit our needs, and we ventured into the lobby, which in my opinion was very nicely decorated, showing their customers that comfort is on their minds. We were greeted by a very cheerful young woman by the name of Coradith, who made us feel very welcome; she had a nice, casual attitude while remaining very professional and efficient, and she even recommended restaurants for us.
(I will add, however that if you are a vegetarian, as my husband and I are, the best restaurant in town for you is ASII, which is a mere quarter-mile North of the Inn, on the West side of the street, and is not mentioned by the staff at The Affordable Inns. We had to venture out to find something to fit our needs.)
Our room was a true delight! We had a first-storey room, with wooden beams on the ceiling, which made the room feel like a cozy cabin in the woods. On the front of each door are room-number plaques, and each appears to be hand-painted, and no two are the same. The beds were so comfortable, which was a welcome experience for us after our very long drive that day, and we were happy to discover that the traffic sounds of Townsend Avenue were non-existant (the heater, however, was rather loud, but it's not a total spoiler; the room was nice and warm that night).
If I ever find myself in that area again, I will make a beeline to The Affordable Inns in Montrose, and I will recommend it to any friends going through there!

Room Tip: I recommend rooms closer to the lobby, not facing the road. You'll see the layout when you get t...

The staff couldn't be more friendly, helpful, and comforting! The rooms were spotless, the beds were amazing, the pool was refreshing, and the lobby was GORGEOUS! I recommend staying here...GREAT RATES, TOO!! Overall a terrific experience. Thank you Affordable Inns staff and owner.

My roommate and I decided to head west from Golden with no particular destination. We rolled into Montrose around 9:30 on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Expecting the worst we asked around at a few hotels that were kind of scuzzy for the price. We found Affordable Inns with the help of Google and went over to see what they had. They offered us a suite at a very reduced rate (normal rate is just over $100 so not too bad) and we fell in love with our room. It was large, very clean, elegantly decorated and the beds were amazingly comfy. We ended up booking the room for a second night. The whole staff was wonderful, the property was quiet despite being on a rather busy road and we ended up getting the pool to ourselves for a bit which was a perk. I will be staying here again. The suites have a kitchen with a full size stove and refrigerator so that was also a huge bonus! There is a flat screen TV mounted on the wall so you can watch TV from the supremely comfy beds. The linens were really nice too, I thought that was a nice touch. The bedding was soft, not scratchy or itchy like normal hotel bedding.

Room Tip: This is a nice, CLEAN, inexpensive hotel

This place was amazing! My roomie and I were roadtripping with no particular destination and our wandering took us to Montrose just as we were getting too tired to drive. We stopped at an Econolodge to ask about rooms and were told their only available double bed was smoking for $80. We looked up other places in the area and decided to try this place because their room rate was a little cheaper and we are cheap. When we got there, it looked at first glance to be a seedy, cheap motel but as soon as we stepped in the lobby, that vanished.

The innkeeper was a lovely, kind woman who had a big smile and was willing to make some amazing deals for us so she could fill the hotel for the night. They had a fire last year and are still trying to recoup their losses. You would never know that from the fully finished new construction and impeccable service, though. She cut us a deal on a double-bed suite, making it affordable and we liked it so much we took it for two nights. It is immaculately clean, the suites are beautiful, spacious and very comfortable with full kitchens and spacious bathrooms. From what we saw of the other rooms, they are smaller in floorspace but comparable in quality. The beds were comfy, the decor was charming and organic, the pool was heated and their breakfast was decent for a continental spread.

All in all, if you find yourself near Montrose, CO, this place is excellent lodging for reasonable prices in comparison to their competition. It was so relaxing and welcoming, it felt like a little slice of home on the road!

Room Tip: Spring for the suite. It's not much more per night and they're magnificent!

This place was clean and adequate, but when we were checking in the desk clerk said because a huge bike race was happening they were "firm" about charging top dollar and would not honor any discounts (eg., AAA, or AARP). We may understand this practice, supply and demand afterall, but to actually be told we were getting gouged seemed a bit much. Also the WiFi connection wouldn't work so I ran diagnostics to see what the problem was. Basically, the hotel needed to re-boot its modem. I gave this information to the lady at the desk and we went to dinner. When we got back the desk lady said it was all fixed, but the connection still didn't work, and the second set of diagnostics strongly suggested that they had done nothing.

Very old but some recent remodeling.
Employees could not have been more friendly.
My buddies and I stayed here while on a bicycle tour so we were really just looking for a shower and a bed.
It certainly served the purpose.
