After a fun but exhausting day at the Great Sand Dunes Park, on Oct 5 I was driving to Walsenburg to find a hotel. This one is a bit out of town so at first I passed it by thinking I'd get something in town, but either many were full or looked seedy. So I drove back and checked in here. I'm glad I did. I like classical music and there was some playing outside the office over the speaker. That put me in a good mood. The main office was a rustic inviting place with free popcorn and juice. My room was very large. It was a bit chilly out, and I noticed 3 or 4 dead or lethargic wasps that very laying on the carpet. I figured they must have come in under the door. I scooped them out the door. The next morning, there were some more. Not a big deal for me personally. I figured, well, we're kind of in the country outside town, so one has to expect nature to intrude from time to time. Parts of the place and rooms seem worn out and to need an update, while other parts seem new and polished, so I assume they are working on it, and like most small non chain hotels, it's an ongoing process. There were a couple scary looking dogs that another reviewer mentioned but when I was checking out they were there and were just big babies, at least with me. I also enjoyed the included breakfast they serve. I'd definitely stay there again if I'm ever in the area.
