This small and quite motel is great as every room has a different decor and you feel at home. Clean rooms and kitchen's with comfy bed's and chairs. The service is great with the prices are worth writing about as I would not even consider going elsewhere. I stayed when the temps were in the single numbers and was very... More

The owner and personel were beyond words, they were kind, generous and church going family people. The room was clean and comfy. Quite and had everything you needed in a motel room. Yes I would for sure recommend to family and friends. Come and enjoy one or more nights.

Okay, it's an older motel. I'm fine with that. The decor is all about wildlife and outdoorsy stuff, and a bit tacky for our tastes, but that's fine. Every bit of decor, from the wallpaper borders to the throw rugs (over the carpet) are filled with bears, deer, elk, birds... you name it. Even the light switch and outlet plates.... More

We are so glad you enjoyed our Loft. We designed it with families in mind. It is always nice to have room to stretch after a long day on the road! Please visit again soon. More

Thought it was just an affordable local motel. Instead it was a completely custom mountain resort room. Spotless, new and amazingly decorated. We stayed in the elk room. The furniture was something you might see in a high end mountain antique store. Everything was themed. Like a motel six converted to a Hilton. The owner took real pride in his... More

Awesome...we enjoyed our over night stay in the Elk Room! Clean room that felt just felt like home. Tom, the owner, was friendly and informative about the area. My husband shared the love of hunting with him ...so we could have visited much longer just listening to his hunting adventures. Definitely one of our favorite places to stay!

Wife and I spent the night passing through. Staff was friendly, accommodating and helpful. Would stay again certainly. Owner was extremely friendly and couldn't have done more for us. Rooms are small, but great for a quiet nights rest for a couple.

One of the best we have ever stayed at! The owner, Tom, is great! The rooms are beautifully decorated. I would highly recommend staying here if in monte vista! Tom is very knowledgeable about the area and is so accomodating. They have rooms for all needs, one night or a month, single person to a big family!

This is an interesting motel and the the owner is a very friendly guy. I was feeling fairly positive about my experience until I threw back the covers for a good nights sleep. The bed was in my estimation less than optimal and I in my estimation past the time for replacement The mattress springs were easily felt on what... More

I called late (around 10:30 pm) on a snowy May night and told the desk clerk that I was an hour out. He said the desk closed at 11, but volunteered to stay up until I got there. Very friendly when I arrived. Rooms all have hunting and fishing motif. Basic, clean, comfortable. Don Thomas Bakery (around the corner) is... More
