Cute, comfy, clean and quiet! Located on the highway but amazingly quiet. Very welcoming decor, inside and out. Just like motels used to be. The owners are the sweetest and very accommodating. So happy they had a room available. We highly recommend this motel and will definitely return! I gave a 5 star rating but it really is a solid... More

We rode in on a motorcycle and truly needed a comfortable stop. This place is very charming - not new, but quaint and clean. Loved the little dinette table and shelving for all of our gear. We got a room with 2 queens; one of them was in it's own bedroom - SWEET (my husband snores like a freight train!!... More

Reasonably priced motel. Owners very friendly and helpful... provided rags to clean the motorcycle after a day of riding in the rain. Rooms clean/comfortable... with an old cottage feel, 1950's bathroom décor. Only complaint, no light near shower, and shower head is low.. probably shoulder height and I'm 5'11".

So happy you had a good stay! We try and keep our prices reasonable for our guests. Reading your review you must have been in room #6. I know because of the shower. We have two showers that are lower. I'm sorry you happen to get one of them. The rest are normal height. Lisa and Mark are great managers... More

The hubby and I just needed a place for the night after DJ'ing a reception in Granby. I found this place through Trip Advisor and went with the consensus, which was great. We weren't disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Friendly hosts, clean accommodations, extra pillows for comfort, and a decent bed. While the building has obviously been around for... More

When we travel, we always look for alternatives to the sterile, boring, foreign and corporate owned chains. In Granby, the place to stay is the Trail Riders Motel! Original vintage touches abound, including knotty-pine paneling, period (original?) furnishings, glass block windows in the bathroom, cool original sink, etc. Lisa provided a warm welcome on our arrival after a long motorcycle-riding...

Yes you are right! The knotty pine is original. The Trail Riders was built in 1949 and 1950 and opened for buisness in 1951. We are the 4th owners of the motel. We have owned it for 24 years and have tried to keep a lot of it as original as possible. The desks are original with the TRL on... More

Excellent for the cost and cleanliness. The room's appearance was a step back in time with its knotty pine walls! The room was equipped with a small fridge, a microwave, a small table with two chairs, and a desk. Free Wi-Fi was available. The bed was amazing ~ great night's sleep..

This place is a real gem! We were looking for a kitch motel for a one night stay and we found it! The owners were so open and accommodating. We had a 2 bedroom, so our room was a bit larger than the rest (or so I was told). Old wood panelling covering the walls and ceilings - not tacky... More

We want to thank you so much for your wonderful review. I love it when people notice the little things that make such a difference. The woodwork in the motel was done back in 1950 when the motel was built. It opened for buisness in 1951 so you can see it holds up well if you take care of it.... More
