“Excellent place next to the Gondola in telluride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Clean , modern & classy. Our room had a small patio next to the creek. It was a very large suite with a king bed in its own separate room. Good breakfast buffet was included with fresh
Bagels and real coffee. Apples in bowls at the hotel are a nice touch. We were on on bicycle tour and we loved telluride. It is breathtakingly beautiful

We stayed in a beautiful spacious room with a fireplace, a balcony, just-right furnishings, and a two-person tub. The property has a very nice sauna; there is an outdoor Jacuzzi with views of mountain tops, water falls, and town below. The lobby is both comfortable and tastefully designed; the staff is very friendly and the continental breakfast includes bakery-fresh pastries...mmmm. The hotel is in a perfect location...the river trail runs right behind it and the gondola boarding station is right next door. We had a wonderful view of the town and mountains from our balcony. Before arriving, we were impressed with the perfect scores given to this property by other reviewers, now we know that they are well-deserved.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony. It's worth the extra $.

We just got back from Telluride and I wanted to write a review just because how great it was! I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it was (don't ask me why!). The rooms were large and we had a fireplace. The bathrooms were also very large and had a tub that would fit 2 people, and 2 robes. Our patio was nice and looked over the stream in the back of the hotel and then up the mountain. (Room 204). The continental breakfast was an added bonus so you didn't have to worry about what to eat that morning. The outdoor over sized hot tub was also very nice. Service was great and employees were friendly. The gondola right outside your door was a great feature and fun to use that free service. Overall, great place. Will definitely stay there again when we're in Telluride.

Not as luxurious as staying in Mountain Village of Telluride, but close. The room was big enough and the bathroom was big and nice. I was there in the springtime, so walk on access to skiing was not a factor. The outside door to the deck was nice.

The 25 foot outdoor hot tub is excellent, and the sauna cranks out plenty of steam. The continental breakfast could have some fruit added to it, but considering I paid more at Hotel Madeline and had no breakfast, it is a pretty good deal.

Room Tip: Ask for an outside door to the deck.

Telluride has a down town area with all the shops and fabulous restaurants and the ski village about 3 miles away as the crow flies or in this case as the gondola travels. The free gondola that connects the two main areas is assessable to both skiers and non-skiers and stops right out side the Camel's Garden. It would be impossible to have a more convenient location. Visitors can hop on the gondola or another ski lift that brings them right up to the top of the mountain. We rented the 3-bedroom condo #305 which directly overlooks the two lifts. Cathedral ceilings, updated kitchen and bathrooms, lot's of space on three levels. Even though it felt as if we were close enough to jump off our balcony onto the chairlift the condo was very quiet. All of Telluride including Camel's Garden is dog friendly.

There is access to ski rental store, a restaurant (casual BBQ) and a spa from the main lobby and a high end ski boot fitting shop right across the street. In addition the hotel is well known to two local vendors that helped make our stay at 9,500 feet more enjoyable - Ski Butlers (they bring the skis to you) and an oxygen concentrator that we rented and was waiting for us in our room. For those with altitude issues this could save your vacation.

We highly recommend a stay here and will be back ourselves.

Camel Gardens could not be in a more spot on location, couple of steps from lift 8 and a few more to the gondola what could be more perfect on a ski holiday. Rooms are clean,huge with comfortable beds, breakfast continental but ample to choose from, cheese & wine at 5 o'clock, ski valet that takes your skis from the locker to outside in the morning and puts them back at night when you ski down from the slopes right to the door, ski hire shop on property, large cozy hot tub, garage below hotel and lovely staff. Only a few minutes from restaurants & shops.

Nice hotel with great location, attentive staff and continental breakfast! No need to forage for breakfast before hitting the slopes. Did I mention the great location at the foot of the gondola, walk to restaurants, brewery/pub and shops!?!?
The only negative I can hardly bare to mention, is the lack of a refrigerator or coffee pot in room. Otherwise, this hotel was..."just right!"
