“A wonderful stay high in the Rockies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We were in town for a day of skiing on the Mountain in Telluride. The room was Great, only a block from the Gondola. The staff were very helpful, and made excellent recommendations for dining and ski rentals. One big advantage is that they offer free parking, a big factor in Telluride!
Highly recommend - great for skiers!

Room Tip: Take advantage of the facilities

What a magnificent place Telluride is. To make it better Scott and his team at the Camel Garden made the stay so easy. We came from Australia and didnt know really what to expect but Scott was very helpful. It is located right next to the Gondola for access to the ski fields and the Telluride trail allows skiing to the base of the Gondola at the end of the day. The guys at Telluride Sports (part of the Camels Garden Hotel) were excellent. Chris,David,James and Dixon made everything easy-best boots and skis. Best of all you leave your shoes there while you ski and drop off all your ski gear at the end of the day and walk back in comfortable shoes. The supermarket and the bottle shop are walking distance-50m, and the main street about 100m.
We will definitely be back again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountain have the best view and are quieter at night

We stayed at the Ice House in August, 2012 for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge stage that ended in town. We have stayed at the Ice House almost every fall or summer since 1997. The rooms are great, complimentary breakfast always good, but the highlight is always stopping by Rico's for HH or coming back from dinner. He always remembers us, and we have great conversations about Telluride, activities during the trip & life in general.

We stopped here during a road trip and it was a great choice. The staff was friendly and Rico (bar purveyor upstairs) is friendly if you drink there. ( We didn't and it obviously disappointed him) There is not free wifi which was silly. The accommodations were clean and "current". The view- beautiful. The parking- if you have a large vehicle forget about it. The underground parking is "cramped" to be kind. Would I go back? Definitely!

Room Tip: Rooms with a "lot" view also have a mountain view and a little ealry morning street sound.

I just stayed at the Ice House Lodge with my fiance while on a short summer trip to Telluride. The location and accommodations were excellent. Our 3rd floor suite was spacious and very well appointed. Be sure to have a drink at Rico's bar inside the hotel - it's a true hidden gem. The proprietor Rico is the salt of the earth, the heart and soul of Telluride. We will definitely be back.

This hotel is in a perfect spot for parking your car and walking to explore Telluride. It's close to main street and the gondola and has a cute little bar on the 3rd floor and what looked like a special restaurant outside. The lobby/seating area is done well- very Telluride!

The rooms are spacious- very much have a lodge/campy feel and there is a nice deck where you can open the door and feel the cool breezes in the summer. The bed was comfy- robes were supplied to go use the pool which was in the building next door.

The bathrooms have been modernized- really don't match the room decor- and I must say that when designers do "modern upscale" they should have to use the facilities before they commit to them. The sink was a high big bowl- hard and awkward to use. The tub/shower was high which would be nice for a long soaking but difficult to get in and out of. Even my husband who is 6" said it was not a user-friendly bathroom- but it does look good!

The breakfast had some yummy bagels but otherwise just and OK continental breakfast. Overall a good place for exploring Telluride- one plus was free parking!

Room Tip: We were in the front which was noisy still after 11:00 pm due to the restaurant outside.

We enjoy the Telluride Bluegrass Festival every June. This is our 15th festival and we've stayed at the Ice House for the past 12. We'll be making our reservations for next year when we check out--as we do every year. The Ice House is conveniently located for us, an easy walk to the Festival grounds. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Our room (yes, the same one every year) is large with a nice balcony, comfy bed, and a spacious bathroom. Don't miss saying hello to Belle the Bulldog who helps affable Rico run his third-floor bar, "Rico's". The adjacent restaurant, La Marmotte, is very good for lunch or dinner. (And, don't be surprised if you run into one of the festival musicians at Rico's.)

Room Tip: We prefer the third-floor balcony rooms on the southeast side.
