“An unexpected find in Winter Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I normally avoid independents, but I needed a room for a ski weekend. Albert, the innkeeper, was a trove of ski information. He built the hotel and he and his family care about each guest. The rooms are simple, but very clean. I had my laptop, iPad, and host of other electronics and they were safe in the room.

The heated indoor pool and spa was a welcome sight after all day on the slopes.

Breakfast is continental and the hotel is conveniently located in the hub of downtown,

This is an older motel but well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. The place was very clean and safe. Got a quiet, good night's sleep on comfortable bedding. Great for families or couples. Breakfast was muffins, bagels, coffee and juice, it was fresh and good.

Room Tip: This place is 2 buildings, half "hotel" and half "motel" so you can choose if yo...

This "Lodge" hotel on the main drag of Winter Park, CO (U.S. 40) provides a very hard mattress and a fairly clean room. The train passes right behind the hotel and unless you like hearing trains a lot in the night, you probably want to avoid this hotel and look for lodging on the east side of the road (this is on the west side). The breakfast is definitely not something to brag about (nothing hot unless you call making instant oatmeal with hot water "hot"). For the price, it was not a real bargain but O.K. for the budget.

Great hosts. Very welcoming. Fantastic downtown location for food and drink and transport to the mountain. Cannot thank Albert and Carol enough for their advice and kindness. Cannot fault cleanliness of motel. All areas, reception, rooms and pool maintained to a high standard. We have been to Winter Park four times now and stayed somewhere different each time. Will definitely be staying at Olympia Lodge on our next visit!!

The sign in front says Olympia Motel, not lodge. The sign is accurate. The rooms are poor like you'd expect from a motel. About the same quality as Super8.

Very basic room, found trash/hair ties underneath one of the beds, which means cleaning might not have been done all that well. But overall, it was a great room. Like I said, very basic, not fancy but quiet and got a good nights rest. We had a large suite with 3 beds, 2 tv's and a mini fridge. Beds were comfortable! Cost was low at $104 per night. Front desk was nice, pool was small but my kids enjoyed it and breakfast in the main lodge was good, typical continental with bagels, yogurt, cereal, good to grab quickly before you head up to the slopes. Also they have a ski shuttle that picks you up about 50 feet from the front of the lodge!
