“Long weekend getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We came to Telluride for a friend's wedding and stayed at the Camel's Garden and had an amazing stay! The front desk personnel provided us with great customer service, being always helpful and accommodating, recommending restaurants and places to take pictures. This place is right by the gondola in town, next to the ski runs and two block down from Main St. Couldn't get more central and convenient than this! The apres ski was an even better surprise with complimentary wine and cheese! I would definitely go there again and recommend it to all my friends!

Our family of 4 has been fortunate to stay at the Camel's Garden for a few years now. Their roof top hot tub is a favorite spot to relax after a day of raging pow around Telluride's amazing terrain. Proximity to all of the old towns character, best restaurants and bars is second only to the convenience of access to the gondola and lift 7 (which drops one at lift 9, one of America's best ski lifts). Best of all, the people who welcome their guests, Mike, Autumn and Matt extend a genuine warmth that can be lacking in many ski resorts across America.
Top notch and we'll be back.

Super value, excellent location for skiing - you can fall into the gondola that whisks you up to Mountain Village.... where the action starts. Clean, spacious rooms. Bear & Matt were very helpful.

Glad we stayed in town, as opposed to the Mountain Village. Great selection of local restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Charming town and a challenging mountain with zero lift lines. A memorable trip made all the more pleasurable by Camel's Garden. Get 3 lifts to the summit, ski down "see forever" switch to "telluride trial" (4 miles approx) and into the arms of the Camel's Garden ski valet. Perfect.

People fly from all over the USA to get their ski boots PROFESSIONALLY fitted by Boot Doctors, which is right across the street. I have been plagued by ill-fitting boots, but Joe sorted me out with a dashing pair of Head boots that are as comfortable as they are effective. TIP: get customised foot-beds. It will change your life!

We stayed at this hotel as a result of a booking error at another hotel in town, and BOY am I glad that error was made. The management at Camel's Garden hotel - both Mike and Matt, were so accommodating; made us feel warm and welcome and understood immediately our situation. The hotel is fabulous, location unbeatable, really perfection. It's truly a pleasure to find a place like this, and I know we will stay here again on our next trip to Telluride.
Added bonus: very good complimentary breakfast and wine and cheese in the afternoon.

The hotel is perfect. Best location, rooms were warm and comfortable. Great complimentary breakfast. Oak bar and food in the lobby was great. Matt was the concierge and was very helpful, even took one of us skiing on day off to remote locations to get the most of Telluride. In fact all employees were very helpful with everything. We are planning on coming back soon!!!

Incredible room and views literally within feet of ski lift, gondola & town. Fabulous spa & ski shop in the same building with underground parking. Thanks to Mike, Autumn and the entire staff...they were exceptional. Ski valet & locker service run by two of the best - Jim & Fritz.
Would highly recommend and we will definitely return!
