“Wonderful Return to Mountain Lodge at Telluride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We so loved our stay here last year that we returned this year for a ski trip with six friends. Because of our 8 person group, we chose to stay in the gorgeous four bedroom cabin that is just steps away from the slopes. The cabin's high ceilings and tall windows make the mountain views from the living room and balcony spectacular. The bedrooms were nicely appointed with comfortable beds. Three full baths. The kitchen is very nice with high end appliances. The living and dining room area is perfect and gave our group a wonderful space to gather together for meals and conversation. The only drawback is that the master bedroom is located on the top loft level and it has no door. Its interior windows overlook the main level living room. Those interior windows have no blinds and therefore you cannot block out the light from downstairs. Nevertheless, we loved the master and its exterior windows facing the slopes. The master bath also has both a tub and shower and all bathrooms have heated floors. We absolutely loved the ski in / ski out access and leaving our skis on the cabin porch. The hotel does not have much of a spa, but they did have one masseuse who used a small room located next to the bar / dining room. He was overbooked, a clear indication some attention should be given to a new spa. The staff are great and the location is outstanding. I see some others have complained about the location, but we love it. Just a few steps out the door of our cabin and we are skiing on the really fun double cabin slope. It takes you directly down to two main lifts that will take you to many other possibilities. The free hotel shuttle is also great if you want a quick ride to the gondola or the grocery store. For ski in / ski out convenience and luxurious accommodations, this four bedroom cabin is an excellent choice. I cannot wait to return!

This place is clearly designed for meeting skiers' needs, and that becomes a bit glaring if you happen to stay here during summer months. The location is not technically in Telluride, but it was an enjoyable gondola ride into town. Also, common areas were a bit chewed up and basic, and the rooms were small, simplistic and seemed like lower quality than what you would expect. The only thing that saved this from a lower rating was the quality and attentive staff, they made this an enjoyable experience.

Hello wileyc0y0te,

We appreciate your feedback regarding your stay with us in the past. We are glad that you found the staff attentive and that they could help make your stay more enjoyable. The challenges faced As for the size of your room, we do offer a wide variety of room types, from the most basic and economical lodge rooms all the way up to our 3, 4 and 6 bedroom cabins, with a variety of suites and condos in between. We believe that, at our price point, we remain very competitive with the other hotels here in Mountain Village. We do hope that you may consider us again in the future and if you would like to discuss this any further, I would be happy to hear from you at 970-369-6019. Have a great day!

I just signed-up for Tripadvisor to write this review. I had a really nice two day stay at the Mountain Lodge in late-April. More importantly, I had an even better customer service experience. Doug at the front desk exceeded expectations - great insight on hiking trails, restaurants, etc. He seemed genuinely concerned that I had a good time while in Telluride. I travel a lot and it's rare to get this type of exceptional customer care.

Management, if you're reading this, you should give him a promotion.

Tommy the guy in charge couldn't be nicer and more helpful!!!
our stay was outstanding!! We couldn't believe how helpful the people were and how happy to assist us. The pool/hottub area made our stay and we never wanted to leave.

This is a no brainer, we vacation in Colorado often and Telluride by far beats them all. Great snow for early spring skiing and the Mountain Lodge is THE place to stay. Friendly staff, excellent facilities (ski shop included), great location and ski in-out access, what more can you ask for?

Room Tip: ask for a room with view to the mountains not the slopes. loft room is nice ´n cozy

My wife and I, along with our dogs, had a blast at Mountain Lodge Telluride. We arrived late on a Friday night. The staff welcomed us enthusiastically, checked us in qiuckly, helped us with parking, and provided us with all the information we needed to start off a great long weekend. The room was luxurious, and the view was killer.
Mountain Village has a free gondola that travels over the mountain to Telluride. It is a fun and truly beautiful ride. Once you park your car at the lodge, you won't need it again until you leave.
The staff at the lodge took excellent care of us with general information, help with ski passes and equipment, and just good service overall. And the rates werr very favorable as well. Honestly, I can't endorse Mountain Lodge Telluride too much. You have got to check this place out.

Coming from Miami, the journey was a little long but the final destination was so worth it. Honestly, Telluride is the best ski resort ever - a hidden gem. Not crowded at all during spring break! I've checked out most hotels in the area, by far THE place to stay is the Moutnain Lodge at Telluride. I see why it gets such great reviews and is ranked the #1 Hotel in Telluride. Great location, great value, beautiful down-to-earth hotel, clean and updated, friendly and competent staff, ski in-ski out. Everything is conveniently located. Can't wait to go back next year, and the next....

Room Tip: Rooms in the Double Cabin building are closest to the ski in -ski out portal. I recommend Deluxe Mas...

Hello Juan-Carlos!

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us over spring break. I imagine Miami is quite crowded that time of the year and it may be very nice to get away to our quieter mountain town. Our staff appreciates your kind remarks and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
