Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in a prime location for skiing, Elevation Hotel & Spa receives accolades for its ski-in/ski-out convenience and vibrant atmosphere, complete with live music events and modern décor. While travelers appreciate the cleanliness and the range of amenities, including bars, a gym, and hot tubs with views, some have noted room for improvement in certain areas. The rooms are a point of contention, with guests divided over their spaciousness versus outdated elements. Although the service can be hit-or-miss, and concerns over value due to hidden fees persist, the hotel's inviting vibe and prime location continue to draw guests.

They charge an extra $30 per night for a “resort fee”, plus an extra $50 per night you have to pay when you arrive as some sort of room deposit, plus an extra $30 parking when there are no parking alternatives in the vicinity. All in all upon arrival we had to spend hundreds of extra dollars on the spot. Watch out for these types of hotels. They intentionally hide all these extra fees in the fine print knowing that most people will miss seeing them and then say too bad, you should have read the fine print. This is a classic example of a sleazy business that uses every excuse they can to squeeze extra money out of you and take advantage of your average person who just expects the normal amenities of regular hotels to be included in the advertised prices.

Response from Joe Mirlis, Other at Elevation Hotel & Spa
Responded 3 weeks ago
Hi Heather, I'm sorry you found our fees to be a suprised. All of our booking channels have the fees due at property listed either on the final price of the room or within the property details. The nightly $50 is a incidental hold, this is simply a pending charge to cover any potential room damages and charges to the room, including the parking. In some cases the resort fee is covered by this when not booking directly through the hotel. Any part of the hold that was not utilized is returned to you. For a credit card you'll only see the final payment and the pending charge will fall off. Please email me directly at jmirlis@elevationresort.com so I may take a look at what channel was used for booking and correct if there is missing information.

Nice hotel right at the base of the ski slopes! Staff was great, rooms are spacious for large families, they do charge for parking but it’s covered and protected, 3 hot tubs offered us all room to enjoy, restaurants are fun and good food. We will be back

The Elevation Hotel & Spa's location is unbeatable for quick access to the ski lifts - a skier's dream. The post-skiing hot tub was perfect for unwinding after a day on the slopes. Our room boasted a cool view, adding to the charm of the stay. The only downside was the outdated TVs in the rooms. Otherwise, a great choice for a ski getaway!

Insane mountain views, insane location, and amazing hot tub and bar at this hotel. We stayed here for the weekend and had an absolute blast, Crested Butte is totally underrated, feels like a hidden gem. Staff was super friendly. Healthy mix of hardcore shredders and families having a good time. Looking forward to coming back!! Maybe in the summer for some wildflowers.

Hi Doug, I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Elevation Hotel and Spa! I agree, Crested Butte is definitely a hidden gem. The wildflowers in the summer are amazing - you have to come check them out. They are usually best around the end of June and early July. We look forward to hosting you again!

The best location on the mountain with awesome staff & accommodations. The hotel gym is top notch as well as the saunas indoors. Two Hot tubs outside with an an epic view of the mountain. The rates could not be better for the value we got from the extra spa amenities. Great accommodations at the Billy Bar with live music and a wide variety of NA options. Had the opportunity to meet Christian the GM who not only gave us a great lay-of-the-land on the ski hill but also made sure our rooms were well stocked with Acli-Mate for our stay at the high altitude. Love this place and am already planning another trip for March to get some great turns on this legendary ski mountain!

Great location, but that is where the good ends, dated and old interior, employees live on premise, which I get but can use facilities anytime, which means you and your young children are exposed to drunkeness and employees passing out in front of them (happened to us), thing cruise ship gone wrong, staff is not nearly as helpful or competant once they got bought out, super super disappointing, and Joses is gross, but not a ton of options other than Secret Stash which is awesome

The location is the only reason to stay here. Everything else is below average. They nickle and dime you for everything. The front desk was rude. And the pullout couch bed was unsleepable. They wouldn’t allow late check out and didn’t even check the system. And the hotel was less than half full. Not worth the money

The hotel is very dated. Room and public areas were very clean but significant upgrades are needed. The tv in the room is ancient. Really not even worthy of turning on because the picture quality is so bad. Furnishings remind me of Embassy Suites from the 1990s. Fan in bathroom was loud, almost like a jet engine. I will certainly not return. View of the slopes was great (that was the only great thing). And, don't even bother trying Jose (onsite restaurant).

We loved our stay. Super easy access to slopes and town shuttle. Fun amenities for the kids. Everything was very easy. Only downside was lack of a stovetop. Pretty tough to navigate 4 kids at a restaurant 3 times a day.
