We were driving westward on US 36, late in an April day, heading toward Denver. Clouds were getting darker, and light snow began falling. When we reached I-70, darkness had descended and the snow was getting deeper. We exited at Strasburg, since there was nothing else available before Denver.
We found the Strasburg Inn, and were welcomed warmly ! We were practically the only guests this evening, and immediately took an upstairs room ..... thankful for the availablility of this "refuge" on what seemed like a Christmas Eve Snowfall .... though it was actually April !
Our upstairs room was small, cozy and had a double bed. Bathrooms were "down the hall", but since occupancy was low, we each had basically our own facility ! The price was very moderate.
The owner asked about supper, which we hadn't enjoyed yet, and directed us to a small cafe a short distance away......where we arrived just before closing time.
Back at the hotel amidst still-falling snow, we settled in for a "long winter's nap" ! A larger bed would have been ideal, but we were just glad to experience this 1-night stay in this warm and welcoming facility !
