We stayed for two nights of skiing. The room was fairly large and comfortable. There was a king size bed on the main level and the loft contained a queen sized bed. There was a small kitchenette with a sink, microwave, fridge and coffee maker, no stove. The room was pretty clean but a needed a little work. The carpet was a little worn and needed to be stretched but not bad. The tiles in the bathroom have popped up in several places and are loose. It the number 4 lift and gondola were just a short walk away. You can actually just ski over to both after walking about 25 yards across the sunshine plaza. The only downside I can think of was noise transmission. You could hear the neighbors, not what they were saying but if they coughed, sneezed or snored you could hear it. I mostly slept through it but it woke my husband. Oh and there's no parking with this unit. You have to park in the parking garage about 200 yards away and pay 25 dollars a night. The weekend at the lodge cost us 360 with tax not including the parking. Overall it was a nice place and I would stay again for the price and the amenities. I only give it a 4 because of the things I mentioned- parking, noise and the carpet and tile issues.

Blue Mesa Lodge #40B , was a wonderful loft bedroom with 2 full baths, a full kitchen, electric fireplace, everything one could want really. A very good price, much better accommodations up in Mountain Village than down in Telluride, and with the Gondola just a short walk away, no need to be down in town. These are privately owned and rented through a company in town. First night the power went out on the second floor part of the loft and didn't regain that until the next day, so being a rental lodge is different from staying in a hotel, repair service at night isn't always possible, however i'm sure during most stays things like this don't come up so no worries there. Otherwise it was clean comfortable and wonderfully fantastic with a great view. Skylights were a wonderful idea however they do make it hard to sleep in with all the light in the place, again for most people who probably are very early risers not an issue. Overall, look forward to a return visit, can't imagine a place much better than this to spend a weekend.

We just spent 3 nights at the Blue Mesa Lodge (20B). It is by far the best value in Telluride/Mountain Village when compared to similar studio/1 bedroom non-hotel accommodations. At $115/night (taxes included & no cleaning fee).

We were originally looking for last minute accommodations in Telluride on VRBO with no luck. We contacted Telluride Alpine Lodging hoping to find a place and they had several affordable options for us. We were hesitant at first about not being in downtown Telluride. After our stay we can’t wait to go back to Mountain Village. It is a great place for a romantic getaway, weekend adventuring or a vacation with kids. Lots of activities, parks, trails for hiking & biking and a quick gondola ride down the mountain to downtown Telluride. Their staff was both friendly & helpful. Their offices (for check-in) are easy to find, a couple of blocks down the main drag in Telluride.

PROS: Blue Mesa 20B was spacious for a studio, accommodating my family with a young child who requires room for a pack and play sleeper, clean spacious room with tiled entry, super comfortable king size bed, large bathroom with awesome washer/dryer, super easy access to FREE gondolas, great views, quiet location at end of hallway overlooking courtyard, wireless internet, HDTV, Fireplace, small patio, Good size kitchen for a studio, quiet retreat in the off season, available parking (free) at another building in Mountain Village, great location to hiking & biking trails, grocery store, park with new play equipment (visible from unit), easy to find from main offices downtown, elevator, dishwasher

CONS: parking (if Telluride Alpine Lodging has no vacant spaces for their properties that have no parking assigned), room is over-furnished (10 chairs in a space that sleeps 2 adults), older carpet but clean, no AC but fan is provided, kitchen is not well equipped for basic cooking needs & dishwasher needs some maintenance (latch for soap is broken & it runs really loud) Simple fixes for maintenance/management to make which would give this studio 5/5stars.

It is hard to think that Blue Mesa 20B would not get a favorable review. Those who have been disappointed with their stay may have been too cheap to afford their own tastes. We are seasoned vacation renters and have seen a lot and for $115/night (off season) this unit is a great value for the price. This is a resort town with resort prices so with that expectation in mind we hope you have as enjoyable stay as we did!

We stayed here in the October of 2007 (I know this is a late review), the place was clean and good but comes with a number of problems. 1. Expedia markets Slope Side Studio, but there is NO slop side, huge construction building blocks with view of the mountain side. Expedia must remove the Slop Side Studio option as this is NOT true. I had numerous calls to Expedia and they refused to accept responsibility of information on the Expedia site, they claim that this was provided by Resort Quest Rentals and Expedia does NOT validate the claim. During that period, I didn't have the time to sue Expedia in a small claims court but now I intend to get this done. While I have been using Expedia for the last 4 years, I will not use their services in the future.

The Construction was noisy, and this was exactly like the hotels dot com TV advertisement showing a construction building right across the patio (Ahhaaa lol, but it sucks). I tried to get an upgrade, apparently they had no other options, interestingly, I was told by the Resort Quest Rental person that they DON’T own/contract/service any of the rooms on the front side of the building. The photo on this Expedia shows the front side of the building for which they have NO access and NO rooms. Parking - Again, Expedia's marketing trick, displaying free parking and parking nearby. There is only a 30 minute parking in front of the building and you need to use the Gondola to go to parking area (15 minutes). YES, there are many places in Mountain Village WITH parking.

Avoid this place unless you are okay with the contruction building.
