This hotel has so much personality. It isn't the pristine/modern/perfect kind of place. It's like the town Inn in a mining town way back when... or a hotel you worked at one summer and have stories to tell. The rooms are quirky and personal feeling. It's run and owned by the woman at the front desk who leaves at 5... More

We recently traveled to Fairplay, heading to Pike's Peak with a group of friends on motorcycles. My husband had stayed at the Fairplay-Valiton Hotel twice before & I was excited to be able to visit. Beautiful old hotel located within walking distance of all the attractions in town. Spacious, comfortable rooms & a very welcoming, helpful staff. There is also... More

Cool old hotel. Stopped in for lunch and salad with chicken strips was excellent. Service was great too! Limited lunch menu but priced well. Looked they had a smoker and air smelled of BBQ, maybe that's on the dinner menu. Hope to stay at hotel in the future.

This old hotel has been undergoing management change. The bar will reopen in May with a limited menu. The hotel will be open soon after. Do stop by to see the fabulous back bar and hear the stories of the resident ghosts.

We've stay at the Valiton about 1-4 times a year and have been since 2010. I use to work there and the hotel is immaculate. From the entrance to the rooms everything has it's own person vintage touch. The ballroom/dining area is well lit and spacious, they even have a piano and sometimes there's a gentleman that will be playing.... More

This restaurant is in the charming old Fairplay Hotel. The first thing we noted on entering the hotel was the signs attached to the ladies and mens rooms "Toilets out of order". We walked into the restaurant 2 tables had customers and a waitress was speaking to a person at the desk. No eye contact with us so we seated... More

We have a great time! The owner of the Hotel is amazing - she was always friendly and helped us out whenever we needed something. Joe the Bartender was another incredible person along with Shelly. The chief can cook an mouth watering omelette! Close to fishing lakes and other fun places to visit.

We stayed here over old-years eve, its was icy out an we loved the ability to walk to a local saloon/bar to ring the new year in. It was pricy for what it offered. Smokey smell permeated throughout the hotel - agreed it was bitterly cold, but the room was a joke. Seriously antiquated, and the bathroom rudimentory as the... More

As my rating suggests, it's an average hotel. It has a lot of charm and character to it but don't expect the all out bells and whistles. Staff was helpful but a bit disorganized during our stay. The rooms have the bare minimums but again, if you are there just to sleep you'll be all set. We first were assigned... More

We like staying in Colorado's old, historic hotels. Our room at The Fairplay Hotel was a little quirky, but that's what makes these hotels interesting. The problem with this hotel is all of the clutter. There are building materials scattered around the grounds and the lobby needed a good cleaning and clean out. Unfortunately, when you come downstairs, you overlook... More
