“Over priced by $240.00”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We booked this room via Expedia, for a 1 night stay during a local music festival. We walked into the lobby and waiting for about 10 minutes for someone to appear. One man in line behind us, even walked behind the desk and down the hall... only to find no one.
We were given a room right under the lobby, which had a terrible odor. The bathroom was very outdated! Only a stand up shower the size of a postage stamp (a normal sized adult whould have trouble taking a shower)!!!! The bed was very uncomfortable, and did not seem to be queen size. The noise from the lobby just above us, was incredibly loud, and even worse at 6:00 am, while the "breakfast" was being prepared by staff.
I went up to the lobby for coffee, only to find the pot empty. After a pot had been brewed I asked for half and half, to which the response was "what is that?" Breakfast consisted of, boxed cereal, cinammon rolls, and coffee.
The room rates, with a Motel 6 room.Which is okay, if that is what is presented when booking, and also okay if that is what you have paid for. But we paid over $300.00 for a room that was worth $60.00.
The front desk staff, was never helpfull, or accomidating what so ever.
Parking was always an issue.
The rooms are advertised as "Victorian" but our room was nothing more than an old uncomfortable mattress, with an iron headboard. No closet, and Wal Mart chair and table.
We feel extremly ripped off by this "Inn".

Room Tip: The best advise we can offer, is, don't stay here.

I think the only good thing about this property was the location. It is close to the gondola and the main part of town. The room was ok, queen bed seemed smaller than your average queen. Our room was near or next to a boiler room, which was loud all night long. I thought the noise was from the hot tub near our room, but when we asked the front desk person about it, she said that might be from the boiler room. No apologies. Picked up some earplugs the following day, so the second night's sleep was a little better. Parking was a hassle, they don't have enough spots to accommodate all the guests. Nothing Victorian at all about this, except it was old.
Not worth the $$ at all.

The Vcitorian Inn is a small lodge/hotel in the city of Telluride. The biggest plus to staying here is the location. It is right near the base of the gondola, so there is excellent access to everything. The hotel is not fancy. It is average. The rates are very good compared to most places in Telluride. For budget and convenience, it is a great choice.

Stayed here based on reviews. It was an old fashion inn, with more rooms than expected. Room was decorated in victorian style. Clean. Bathroom could use updating but it is an old building and they are trying. No refrig or microwave but we didn't need it. No air conditioning but in high mountains, we didn't need it even in July. Had windows open and town was quiet, no problem. Walking distance to maint street shops & eateries. Could use new mattress. Blinds should be replaced with more functional & private window coverings. Again, part of the decor I think.

Room Tip: Ask for corner room so you can have cross breeze in summer.

3 Night weekend stay. Spouse called and talked to desk, got a good rate. When we got here we found the staff welcoming. Room clean and spacious, however it is located just above the office and at the head of the stairs. Very noisy. Finally took the small window fan out of the window to close the window but it did not help muffle the outside noise too much. 2nd morning the breakfast was out of cinnamon rolls in under 45 minutes of the 2 hours and it seemed to not be staffed sufficiently to keep up with the guests wanting breakfast and others checking out. Snide comments from staff worker who tried to use "humor" to make up for the lack of service. Suggest spending a little extra if you are wanting peace and relaxation.

The hotel is well placed for the gondola and the town centre.Our room was immaculate and well-equipped with a first class bathroom.The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was perfectly adequate.Overall a fair balance of quality and price.

It was unusually hot when we were there--June 29 and 30. The rooms are not air conditioned, and have little window fans. To use the fans, the venetian blinds have to be partway up, and then the privacy is compromised. Plus, the blinds are old and do not work well, being partly broken and the cords tangled. In the first room we had, the bathtub water would not come on, and the TV was broken--that is, the remote, even with new batteries, would not change the channel. They gave us a new room, which was on the street side instead of the hotter west side, which was a bit of serendipity. The office has coffee and pastries, but doesn't open until eight AM, which is inconvenient. (We did discover the terrific BIT (Baked In Telluride) bakery two blocks away with all anyone needs and they open at 5:30 AM.) Overall, this place is a great location, but is a bit shabby and in need of an upgrade.

Room Tip: If the weather is hot, get the east side.
