I have come to Telluride three times in the last few years and always stayed at the Mountain Lodge.
The location is not very practical if you spend most of your time in Telluride, but if you don't mind being a bit cut out of the world, this is a good option.
The apartments are spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped with anything you may need. I don't like eating out and I am a decent cook, so having a fully functional kitchen for me is a must. The staff is friendly and the place is reasonably quiet. The food and drink choice at the bar is somewhat limited, but prices are honest and quality is reasonably good.
Now the bad:
There is very limited shopping in mountain village and everything is horribly overpriced, even for Telluride standards. Either you don't mind spending 5 dollars for a pound of pasta, or you will end up doing all your shopping in downtown Telluride. A ride with the gondola down to Telluride will take about 25 minutes.
The pool is nice if you have kids, but it is small and full of children; don't expect to be able to swim in it.
Parking is a bit hectic at times, they will charge you 20 dollars for roadside parking and in busy days you may have problems to find a free spot.
