Stayed one night before I went on the cumbres Toltec train the next morning. Hotel is very old, not all that clean and needs a paint job and a good deep clean. Breakfast was day old mini muffins from the grocery store. Good coffee, and mediocre eggs, sausages, potatoes. If they even just did freshly baked goods and really good coffee that would go a long way.

We spent the night here after a brutal hike of Wheeler Peak, so I sprang for a room with a bath, so we could soak. We got the biggest room they had, which with AAA was $125 with tax. This was not originally a hotel (built 1911 as a store), so the rooms are sort of ad hoc. Our suite had no windows in the bedroom. We did have a living room with a bed/couch, a full kitchen with some dishes and utensils supplied, and a separate area with the bed and bath. The bathroom was a strange maybe 1980s style with black or very dark blue tub and toilet. The one fixture was sort of dim, so it was hard to tell. The tub was a jacuzzi type, but did not work. The king bed nearly filled the bedroom, and was very comfortable. The living room had a small flatscreen along with a DVD player. There was a large shelf of DVDs to choose from out in the hallway. The corner room across the hall from our was a lounge with a pool table and some other fixtures. It looked like a fun place to hang out if we weren't so tired. The wifi was not working, but the clerk gave us the password for the one at the little dispensary nearby. It was adequate, keeping in mind the terrible internet speeds in rural America. Dinner was an easy walk across the street. The breakfast the next morning was actually quite good. Bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes, all made fresh.

The hotel itself has one redeeming quality, proximity to the historic train, Culmbres Toltec. The dangerous aspect of this site is the lack of American Disabilities amenities. The outdoor steep stairs lead to an open, multi-leveled open deck. The lighting is poor to none, and a blind step into the hallway leading to the room, left me to a trip to the ER with a broken vertebra in my back.

Being close to the Steam Train made this convenient. The first room shown was for a few hour engagement (which I refused, was pretty bad). The second one was ok and we were tired at the end of the day so instead of riding up to Alamosa we stayed. This is what we found.... the place really wasn't CLEAN. The beds looked as the sheets were never changed from the last nights stay (I'd bet on it). I slept in my sweats and was glad I brought my own pillow and towel for a cover. Took a shower after being covered with cinders & coal dust from the Steam Train. We couldn't find any bar soap around. Only a pump soap container for your hands. Lucky we had shampoo to use but while in the shower, in the corner covered by the curtain was a broken bar of soap left behind from the last person who used it which was never cleaned up. The breakfast was cold. If you need a nights sleep after or before the train go to Alamosa. The next day we stayed at Days Inn and was pleasantly surprised how clean it was for a Days Inn. I'm sorry to say that the town is run down and the only reason it seems to have some life in it was because of the Steam Train. The hotel building is unique built in 1911, the place has potential but only useful when the train runs. Apparently the owners don't care or won't put any money into it. I doubt they'd sleep in it for a hundred a night. The hotel is a nice idea but not worth the risk. I would have rated it lower but needed to be fair for its uniqueness - good luck.

Made a reservation on Booking.com. When I got there (at the time I told them I would get there) the door was locked and there was a sign saying go to the side door, if front is locked. Went to the side door and that was locked. Called the hotel number and got no answer. Luckily was able to get a room in the only other place in town (Indiana Jones B&B, which is very nice).
