Our room was clean & attractive. The bed was comfortable. We asked for a room with view & on the quite side. And, we got it. They added a frig & microwave, as we requested. Yes, the building could a fresh coat of paint. Aspen view out the window was awesome. I can see that during ski season the hotel... More

The wife and I decided to head up to Aspen to take pictures of the changing Aspens. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea as many hotels were completely booked. This hotel had a good rate going, so we decided to book here. The hotel is an older ski resort. However, it was VERY clean and it there were not... More

This place is a work in progress. Some remodeling has been done but more needs to be done. It was clean but old. It was once a spectacular place back in the 60's and 70's and can be again but a lot of money will have to be put into it. It has 3 hot tubs and an olympic sized... More

We had a great experience at Monarch mountain lodge. The rooms where very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and went out of there way to accommodate us. The kids loved the pool, weight room, pool table, and of course the game room. The views were spectacular, we will definitely stay here again.

We had a great experience here on our summer honeymoon trip through Colorado. My husband had been before which is why we stopped but we were treated so well I know we will go back. As soon as they heard we were newlywed, our room got upgraded and we also received a great home cooked dinner from the owner. It... More

Stopped here on our way from Crested Butte back toward Denver. Bottom line, we should've kept driving to Salida. We could have paid the same price, $120, for an ACTUAL 3 star hotel and breakfast. The girl behind the counter was helpful, cheerful, and pleasant to deal with, but our good experience stopped there. No AC in the room, so... More

Frightening place! Looks like a horror film in the dark hallways. They post on the wall the 4 star TripAdvisor review showing how they're the number one hotel in Monarch, but that is total false advertisement because they're the ONLY hotel in Monarch. There is no AC, so when we got there at 8pm it felt like a hot box.... More

We made a reservation knowing we'd be in later in the afternoon early evening - Driving from Chicago to Prescott with a stop in Denver we decided on this pet friendly hotel. We arrived in Monarch at 8:00pm (we were leaving at 6:00am the next day) and our room was not ready (along with a dozen other people waiting for... More

Thought we would really enjoy Monarch Mountain Lodge based on the website descriptions and pictures. However, I was very disappointed with reality. We rented a suite, but it was really two adjoining rooms; the TVs in both rooms didn't work and most importantly, the air conditioning didn't work so we sweated all night. Definitely would not recommend.

Hi Audrey, we are very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. The lodge does not have A/C at all as temperatures stay cool year-round on the mountain, but we do provide fans upon request. Thank you for your review, it helps us grow and improve. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Monarch Mountain Lodge is in the heart of the Rockies and surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. Re-opened in Feb. 2015 Under new ownership, the guest rooms have been repainted, re-carpeted, and refurnished for a more modern feel. We've also put brand new tile in our lobby and restaurant, and fresh carpet in common areas. We are just 4 miles from the Monarch Mountain Ski Area, and given our unique location, the possibilities in terms of outdoor activities are virtually endless. ... more   less
