While this place isn't terrible, it's certainly far from great. My title pretty much says it all... We had a "Garden level" room, to me that means slightly below ground not basement, which is what their "Garden level" actually is. The property is old and showing it's age. It's obvious the owner isn't interested in truly renovating it, and instead keeps it up in a rather hap-hazard/ barely sufficient manner. I would approximate the room was about 10' by 12', literally just enough room to walk around the king sized bed. Furnishings are somewhat dilapidated. The bathroom was abysmal. Like another reviewer mentioned, the noise that resulted from turning on the light (and connected fan) gave you the impression a helicopter was landing in the bathroom. Shower was itty-bitty, think broom closet size. Next to the shower was the toilet, in just enough space for it to fit, and then the wall, there is no way that you could have the bathroom door open and open the shower door. There are only like 19 rooms at this place, and yet housekeeping was vacuuming at 7 am on Saturday, talking super loud, and knocking on our door shortly there after. Do not stay there if you are a light sleeper, or at least bring ear plugs with you!
The most this place has going for it is the friendly and helpful staff, and the patio hot tub, which was lovely on a cold, slightly rainy night.
Like my title says, anywhere else on earth this place is a rip off, in Aspen it's acceptable because it's a room with a bed and a bathroom with running water for under $300/night.
