Average service. Average rooms. Air conditioner was churning out bad smelling air and likely needs service. Breakfast was okay; it seems they were serving expired eggs. Nice location. Would not stay here again given the price.

We stayed at the Angler Inn as a passing point towards Telluride Bluegrass festival and almost didn't leave we felt so at home and comfortable! The staff were attentive and helpful, the food we had in the restaurant was delicious and the room was comfortable and modern. The restaurant had a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the complimentary breakfast was... More

I don't know if the other reviewers were too drunk to notice how awful this place was, but I was misled by the high score on this place. This was the worst place I've stayed in years! Here is a list of its problems: 1. The bed was horrible. It was concave so we constantly woke up scrunched together in... More

The only thing you can call this place truly is an "Inn". It's cozier and more beautiful than your typical hotel and certainly nicer than your typical lodge or motel. The room was clean, nice and complete with mason jars to drink from. Most rooms had a terrace or patio which was very nice. This inn was also in a... More

This place is nice. The rooms are big, clean and A/C works good. The place is not really run down, how every lawn is dried up, not many if any flowers, thing that make a place extra special. The restaurant was closed one night we were there simply they can find help. The complementary turkey and bacon sandwiches were good... More

We stayed here during our visit to Telluride for the 2016 Mountain Film Festival. It was very nice. Outstanding room with a balcony. Very comfortable bed. The Inn is on the highway, but road noise was eliminated with the balcony sliding door shut. Noise from adjacent rooms was a bit more than expected - the only thing we wished was... More

Wonderful place to stay! 13 miles to telluride. Great fishing and the views were fantastic! The fish tacos were excellent. The staff was friendly and helped me out with directions. Room was clean and bathroom roomy. Free continental breakfast and hot coffee on the patio! Will return!!

Drove from Denver to Telluride for a skit getaway. When we stumbled upon the Angler Inn we were so happy about the 'bed and breakfast' charm of it. With only 14 guests rooms it felt very calm and quiet. Its about 15 miles from the main town, bur after a day of crazy skiing and business it almost felt like... More

I was in Colorado for a continuing educational course in Telluride and the host hotel was sold out and I stayed a few miles away at the Angler Inn. I had my own private patio, a beautiful bed a fine flat screen tv with more channels than I could watch. The bathroom was very modern and as nice as could... More
