Heading to Telluride I was detoured by a rain storm and mud slide that closed the road. Headed back down the road to a place that caught my eye a little earlier. I thought I would grab a bite and decided upon walking in to grab a room. The clerk (may have been one of the owners) was extremely helpful and I let her pick a room (though there was a slightly higher charge for a room with 2 queen beds I thought odd). No king rooms left. I was in no position to be picky. No AARP discount yet, but the room was just what I needed. Everything was clean and fresh, showing limited signs of wear. It looked out onto the enclosed yard and I note in the morning some dogs were playing out there, so it may be a pet friendly place. A little disruption in the television signal because of the storm also played with the internet signal at times.
Had dinner on-site too. It was great. Nice selection of well prepared items and good choice of several craft beers on tap. Waitstaff was a little overwhelmed by the crowds that came in from the road closure, but they handled the glut of business well. Morning complimentary breakfast was nice touch too!
