“Unit 314 Telluride Lodge was perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2010

We planned a last minute weekend trip to Telluride. Due to MLK holiday most rooms were booked over that weekend or just super expensive. We found Telluride Lodge and it was a perfect fit for us and our 10 year old daughter The unit was surprisingly large with a muli level floor plan, two bathrooms, one with a jet tub and the other with a newer shower. The unit looked as it was decorated with IKEA type furnishings. The full sized kitchen offered butcher block island and all the dishes you would need to make a sunday dinner including wine glasses and Calphalon pots and pans.. The living room had a DVD player and a flat screen tv. The unit has a mud type room with full washer and dryer. There is a small deck with access to the parking area off the dining area. regardless of what past reviews mention that the property is not downtown Telluride then they must be too lazy to walk a couple of blocks to get an amazing meal and/or drink. There is also a really nice grocery store behind the hotel so you can stock up with everything you will need. Lift 7 is just an easy, short walk from this property. If you do not want to walk a few blocks for dining or to the lift you may not want to stay here , but if you are looking for a good value in expensive Tride in a decent location then check out Telluride Lodge #314. There is also a free bus that takes you around Telluride including the Gondola. If you are looking for a fair priced, quick lunch or breakfast got to Baked In Telluride for bagels or homemade tacos. For dinner we really enjoyed Rustico. Decent food and good service.

2 adults and 2 kids stayed in Telluride Alpine Lodge #525 for the Bluegrass Festival. The unit smelled very musty and moldy just like we were staying in someone's basement. It is in desparate need of updating and repair. The kitchen is old with ripped flooring. The bathroom is down another flight of stairs with a very bizarre and inconvenient layout. This was not at all worth the festival rate we were paying. We stayed one night and checked in to another unit.

Winter 2012: Telluride Lodge #525 has gotten a few updates, and expelled the musty smell. Still a split-level floor plan, though.

My family of five, enjoyed staying at the Telluride Lodge this June. It provided enough space for the five of us at a valued price that we could afford. With gas prices at an all time high, we were able to park our vehical and walk to every location in the Town of Telluride and take the Gondola to Mountain Village. Which by the way is a big hit with kids :)

The property is not your 5 star resort, but it met our needs with our family with kids. Location is great. We are looking forward to booking a winter vacation to ski this upcoming winter since Telluride Lodge is accross the street from a chair lift.

This was a great vacation and thanks to the savings in accomodations and out to eat meals, we were able to do more while we were there. It's an absolutly beautiful place and we spent more time outside enjoying the town and activities, then we did in the condo, but while we were there it was great!

  • Liked — It was a value for our family of five and is a great location and Telluride is beautiful
  • Disliked — No BBQ on Decks of units- had to use community BBQ Grill- not a big deal- just a little difficult.

My husband and I stayed at Telluride Lodge this spring while in Telluride and had a great experience. The front desk was super helpful when our bags got stuck in Denver and were great at recommending restaurants around town. The room was affordable, clean and close to the mountain. I would definitely stay there again!

My wife and I were able to pull away from our busy Denver lives for a qucik five day trip down to Telluride this Spring.

In the many years I have skied in Telluride I had never seen a season like this.

Our arrival went without a hitch, and the unit was fine.

This is in no way a 5 star hotel, but neither was the price.

The location was excellent! Who wants to stay in the mt. Village anyway. The price was right and the hot tub soothed our weeary bones.

Pound for pound I find Telluride Lodge to be a perfectly good property in which to stay. It might be easy to feel inferior to other properties because Telluride is full of over built high-end luxury condo's and hotels, but as far as my wife and I are concerned Telluride Lodge offers us exactly what we want.

Location, affordability, and overall cleanliness

We had a great weekend in Telluride and the lodging was perfect!! The location and price couldnt of been any better. My husband and I along with the kids had a lovely stay and a very nice condo I might add. Being right across the street from the ski lift was a + with our family. The views of the mountain were great. We heard minimal noise which was nice considering we have small children. My family and I plan on staying here again next ski season and would reccomend it to others.

I, along with 27 other travelers from a ski club in Florida, stayed at the Telluride Lodge 3/1 - 3/8. We worked with a ski tour operator who arranged for our accomodations. We trusted in that tour operator to ensure that the lodging was of a standard that would meet reasonable expectations. Unfortunately, they did not. My wife and I, along with another couple, were originally assigned unit # 538, which was absolutely horrible....broken furniture, ceiling falling in, dorm-sized refrigerator, and simply dirty and tired. After requesting with the condo office that they move us, they showed us 2 other units that were just as bad and then ultimately moved us to a 3 BR unit (#529), which at first seemed a little better (newer furniture, full-sized refrigerator, etc...) and since we had been traveling all day, we accepted the unit. Much to our disappointment, after we had been in there a few hours we really began to notice just how filthy the unit was. Mold and mildew in the bathrooms, dirty carpet, windows that hadn't seen Windex for months, broken glass-top table on patio, dust clinging to air-vents, etc... The shower in the lower bathroom would not drain properly, leaving standing water in the tub while one showered. We complained to the office on Monday and didn't see it fixed until WEDNESDAY. The manager did NOTHING to compensate us for what was a very disappointing stay and actually denied there were any problems with the unit, when our trip leader tried to discuss with him. The manager in charge of group sales NEVER even came to view the unit and hear our complaints. Meanwhile, a group of 6 folks from our club, who only complained about the bathroom configuration, was moved to a private house that was absolutely impeccable. We were treated unfairly and unjustly and management was rude, curt, and downright in denial of any issues. Many of the units in this property should NOT be in the rental pool and the management company should force owners to upgrade their units. I would not recommend this property to anyone including my worst enemy, as it is very old, tired, and lacks basic standards of cleanliness and maintenance.
