We stayed here for the first time earlier in the summer, and made a repeat visit just recently, extending our stay to 3 nights. We were so pleased with the location and the extremely welcoming and friendly staff, that we didn't think of trying another hotel in Grand Lake. This modest motel offers very clean rooms with all that you need (small microwave, refrigerator, and coffeepot), and chairs on the balcony that faces the lake. This is not a grand modern lodge experience; rather it's homey and comfortable and you just can't beat the location, right on Grand Lake. There are tables and chairs out front that you can use to eat outside; also a few barbeque grills available to use. Besides the wonderful lake view, the location is very convenient to walk to shops or restaurants in town. It is just steps away from a great bakery and Squeaky B's, plus a new One Rum Jamaican restaurant. The friendliness and flexibility of the staff really stand out. We look forward to another visit.

We happened upon Western Riviera when we were staying at a “luxury” condo, which turned out to be far away from the lake, too hot for comfort on the top floor, with a view of the parking lot. While walking through town, we saw this motel right on the waterfront, and poked our heads in to inquire about a vacancy. Ten minutes later we were sitting on the front porch of a lakeside cabin, within walking distance to everything, and we’ll never stay at another place on Grand Lake. The staff is above and beyond friendly, the rooms are clean, not fancy, but no-fuss, convenient, and quiet. Restaurants and shops are a short block away, and the Grand Lake Marina is directly across the boardwalk for boat rentals.

This place and staff are second to none! The first night we stayed a strong but short rain cell came in and we couldn't close a window. The maintenance man had left so Traci at the front desk braved the awful weather conditions with a screwdriver and saved the day! Next day my girlfriend had a medical issue and again Traci came through with an ice pack to soothe her pain and was so kind and considerate. She made us feel like her own family! This place is as close as you can get to the lake with spectacular views. Many hotels say they care; Western Riviera actually goes the extra mile for it's guests. We'll be back real soon thanks to Traci and her staff!

We have spent a lot of time at Grand Lake over the years, with our family having a cabin up there until recently. We've always said that we'd have to try out the Western Riviera if we ever found ourselves without a place to stay in Grand Lake.

Well, we tried it this past weekend and loved it. The location is the best, it was awesome to enjoy morning coffee on the deck. And, it made our boating experience so much better as we could tie up at the public dock and easily walk to the room to get drinks and food. And being able to walk to shops and restaurants was perfect.

The room was extremely clean, and the beds, were quire comfortable as well.

We'll be back on July 24 - looking forward to being back in our favorite Colorado town.

This was our first stay in Grand Lake. The trip was planned rather last minute so we called and the hotel was able to accommodate us for one night in a small cabin room. The room is very small, but literally steps from the lake. It was just 2 adults so it worked fine for our one night trip. The view of the lake is great and we were able to park our car and walk everywhere. The staff was friendly, room was clean, and the rate reasonable for summer. We would stay here again.

My family and I stayed in the penthouse during New Year's. The room was probably one of the cleanest rooms that we have stayed in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and seemed like they were very interested and making sure our stay was wonderful. The room was very convenient. It was very close to everything we needed and when I say very close I mean within just a few minutes walking distance. The fireworks for New Year's we're literally half a block walking distance right on the lake. I would highly recommend staying at this location.

The good news: the "Western Riviera" has a great setting right on Grand Lake and the rooms are clean. Beyond that, well, there's not much to recommend it.
The walls are paper thin--we could listen to our neighbor's television selections all night long. Our bathroom was tiny, but did have the basic amenities. The rooms face onto the (small) parking lot, so you'll deal with that noise as well. And, as it was peak season, it was silly expensive.
There's no restaurant onsite (and one of their "sister" restaurants was closed the night we stayed). So be prepared to either dine elsewhere beforehand, or scope things out in advance. Also be aware, the front desk is not staffed overnight.
All in all, I can't say we'll return, as it just wasn't worth the premium price you pay for its "riviera" (?) location.

This is an old motel. Room was small and quite dated but clean with a good shower. Bed was just okay, or just uncomfortable if you prefer a softer bed like my husband did. Motel is adjacent to the lake with a beautiful lake view, but the shore area is a public, park-like area that anyone can access without staying at this hotel. There are tables, chairs and umbrellas all along the patio and walkway areas next to all the rooms, and people were sitting there from early morning to all hours of the night, on both floors, talking and laughing. You open your door and they are a few feet away. We could clearly hear their conversations outside our rooms because the walls are thin. That’s okay if you don’t mind it or being kept awake by it. In the morning the coffee provided in the huge pot near the lobby was truly terrible, like bad instant coffee. However the room coffee was good. If you really want to be at a motel right next to the lake then stay here and you will enjoy the very beautiful views of the lake. That’s what you are paying for, a lake view and not a quality hotel stay. In my opinion the price was too high for what I got and I wouldn’t stay here again.

This was the perfect accommodation for 7 family members (in 3 rooms). We wanted to be in town, close to the lake (with boat & kayak rentals), shopping, carry out dining; yet within range of nearby scenic drives. All aspects of the visit were extremely smooth -- reservations, check-in by an excellent & most welcoming staff, room configurations, frig/stove/stocked kitchenware, a very scenic courtyard that made us feel we were in a mountain setting, outdoor propane grills & picnic tables, etc. Across the street were the town library, park, playground, picnic pavilion, etc.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Western Riviera and our visit to Grand Lake. The room was very clean and comfortable and opened up to a beautiful view of the lake itself. We really liked sitting on the balcony, relaxing with a glass of wine, watching the birds and the sunset. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even mailed us a sweatshirt back that we forgot...and included a keychain in the package. I can't wait to return to Grand Lake and I will, for sure, stay at the Western Riviera again.

We're sorry, we do not have air conditioning, however, most people cannot sleep with the windows open all night due to the cool mountain air. We do have fans in all our rooms. Take care.

We have stayed there several times on the lower level facing the lake. There is a nice deck looking out on the lake but the room we stay in doesn't have a separate balcony. The bathroom is plenty big enough, including a small rack with shelves for towels or your clothes. As frequent visitors to Grand Lake, the Western Riviera is the best there is - value and quality is exceptional.
