A lot depends upon the room you get. Some are much better than others, views, bed comfortable. I have stayed there every year for the last three so I must like it. Try the pastries right next door and the Tapas at the restaurant on the corner. Can't beat the location, best in town, best possibile. Check out the bear... More

This is my second stay at the Western Riviera. We love this hotel for a couple of reasons. First of all, the location is right on the beach, next to boat rentals, the yacht club and one half block from everything in Grand Lake. The second thing is that Grand Lake is a wonderful old Colorado town. Some of the... More

My husband and I just stayed there this weekend. I dont know if it was because it was summer and prime time for family vacation but $ 200 per night for a motel that has not been updated since the 1970's is ridiculous. The room was clean but outside the room where everyone passed by was dirty. We had a... More

Right on Grand Lake, clean, located in the center of town, and right outside Rocky Mountain National Park. Great location to enjoy Grand Lake and to check out the Southeast part of RMNP. Parking wasn't an issue even on a busy weekend and I'm a popular area. There was no air conditioning, but the cooler temps at this altitude helped.... More

We return every year to the Western Riviera on the shores of Grand Lake and every year, we are delighted we chose to stay at this hotel. Our room was exceptionally clean and well-maintained.

I live along the Front Range and love heading to the hills at every opportunity. I have stayed in all of the resort towns and camped in the most remote, beautiful parts of my State. With that said (written) Grand Lake is my favorite destination, and the Western Riviera is the best place to stay. The motel rooms that overlook... More

We stayed for three nights and loved sitting outside of our room looking at Grand lake and just a stroll into town with it's shops and restaurants. The room we had was clean and comfortable with a room with tea and coffee available all day as required. Friendly and helpful staff. Rocky Mountain National park a short drive away.

Grand Lake is a small vacation community, and unlike a bunch of other vacation destinations, it retains its charm. Western Riviera is in a super location: easy access to the Lake and to the town. The rooms are spacious, the views are good, and the staff is exceptionally accommodating. Good value here. Only criticism would be the extensive outside decks... More

I was looking for a location that allowed easy access to the Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake was an excellent choice.
