“40s Redux”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2008

The rooms are clean and adequate but the atmosphere is of a 1940s boarding house (which it was orginally). The restaurant is good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2007

This is a great local hotel about 30 minutes from the Mountain Village base of Telluride. The rooms are nothing special, but clean. What sets it apart is the great food (breakfast included!) and cute/quaint vibe. No big chain hotel, no pretentions. You will eat dinner along with locals in the super cozy common area. Plus, the value is great, especially if you need the 1/2 price lift ticket voucher.

Stayed February 2007

A quaint little hotel with an unbelievable restaurant. The owner, Eamonn, makes you feel at home. We settled into the quaint rooms (a little drafty) after a day of snowmobiling the high passes nearby and then sat in the outdoor hot tub before a gourmet dinner. The chicken was to die for. What an incredible surprise in the middle of nowhere!

  • Liked — Quaint and great restaurant and service
  • Disliked — Hotel is old and a little drafty in winter.
