We stayed at the Western Riviera for three nights in the Motel with a king bed. The bed was very comfortable and room was clean. There is a small fridge and Keurig coffee maker. The room has gorgeous views of Grand Lake. The bathroom is a little cramped, but it worked fine. Maid service wasn't complete until late in the... More

We had our post race party at the Western Riviera events center catered by Wild Horse catering and had an awesome time! The location is gorgeous and the staff was friendly and professional. We will definitely use them again in the future!

We had a great experience with the Western Riviera and their catering company of choice, Wild Horse Catering. Everyone was very nice and prompt in all our day of preparations. The location cannot be beat for the lake views and square footage available. If you are thinking of an event in Grand Lake or private party, this is the place!

We feel so lucky we decided to stay at the Western Riviera on a week-long visit to Grand Lake! The location is perfect, right in the middle of town but peaceful since it's a block from Grand St. From our deck, the view of the lake was outstanding, and we loved sitting out there to relax. The rooms (bedroom and... More

This hotel is right on the lake and close to everything downtown. If you are looking for that peaceful location it's great- if you are looking for the updated hotel - it's not!

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
