This is really a shabby hotel. Very dark and everything was old. But the location was perfect. In the morning there were deer in the back and the mountains are right there. I just wish the room had been nicer. But, it was inexpensive.

Stayed four nights 9/5 to 9/8 in end room #42. Room wasn't fancy but it was everything the three of us needed. One bed in main room and another separate bedroom, sink vanity area, and a full bathroom, fridge, microwave and tv with cable for $75 a night cash. $80 a night if we used credit. The location was perfect...

Stayed here and the park just below the hotel is excellent and boulder creek has swimming area near by. We rented the bikes that are about a block from the hotel and used them to get around. The location is what suited me best and I would stay again.

My family wanted a hotel close to Pearl Street, on the mountain side, and all of the others were full. We slept well and felt clean when we left, but "suite" and "kitchen" are an overstatement, and the furnishings are pretty basic and old. I think the bedspreads might actually be the same as in the movie Catch and Release,...

Good location but really dirty. The floor was weirdly wet. There was mold in the bathroom and on the facets. Didn't shower because the bathroom was pretty dirty. Really questioned whether the sheets were changed.

My son and I got the chance to visit Silver Saddle in January. We stayed on three different occasions and stayed in three different rooms. The newest part of the Motel had fine spacious room and an atmosphere much like any midrange motel/hotel. Rooms were clean and service was great. On the other trips we stayed in the cabins. As...

This is the worst place I've ever stayed at. The room was not very clean. The bedspreads looked like they hadn't been washed in months or years. The room had a unique odor to it. The heater didn't work. The picture of the place is misleading, you think you are going to stay in the run down looking cabins but...

I planned a getaway for my wife and I. We spent one night I Denver before arriving to Silver Saddle. She got pampered there. Upon our arrival her face dropped. The rooms looked very dated. I guess l like back to the 70s. The place was clean, just in need of refurbishing. Nice location. Nice people. For me, I was...

This Motel is perfect for inexpensive quick get away. it's all we needed to sleep, bathe, and head out again! The cabin was cute, small. It was not very clean and yes it could use a little TLC, but if you are a camper type, appreciate a great location and good bed it's all you need. we usually stay at...

Holy wow. I truly felt like I was staying at a meth lab motel. The setting is beautiful, but it's really unbelievable how downright disgusting the rooms are. I felt like I was in an episode of 'Breaking Bad.' Thrift store bought furniture was falling apart, bugs on the cracked walls and ceiling, hairs left behind by previous occupants. Amazing...
