Molly Gibson Lodge

Reviewed January 15, 2013

We just returned from a four day stay at the Molly Gibson. This is our third stay at Molly's and we will certainly be back again next year. Service continues to be outstanding at the front desk, the airport shuttle and, of course, the lovely Alana with her apres ski offerings. The breakfast buffet is also nice, though a little more variety would be would make it even better. Location is perfect for skiers. Buses to Ajax and Snowmass stop in front of the hotel.
Rooms are older but very clean; ours had a fireplace. Room prices are quite reasonable by Aspen standards.

The Molly Gibson is a eclectic 60s/70s era motor inn that is fairly dreary physically. However, this is not unique in Aspen where most everything that is bright and cheerful is really expensive in season. The staff, especially Elena who runs the Happy Hour in the lounge, makes up for general impression of a Russian lodge. The rooms are dark but are clean comfortable and quiet. As a functional, well-located, reasonably priced and friendly place to stay, and you are not on honeymoon or otherwise would like a better physical environment, I would definitely recommend the Molly.

Room Tip: Try to stay in upper rooms. There are a few basement rooms that should be avoided!

Dear alanbill16,

I appreciate the tiem you took to write about your recent stay with us. I am pleased that you found our hotel staff to be helpful and our hotel to be a great value. We take a lot of pride in our hotel and work very hard to keep it in great condition with the best amenities and value in Aspen. The Molly Gibson Lodge is a traditional Aspen ski lodge with wood burning fireplaces, in-room jacuzzi tubs and a decor that is respectful to the historic heritage we come from, but I assure you that our rooms are not "tired" All rooms have indergone a thorough renovation with new paint, carpet, furniture, pillow top beds and flat screen TV's. in the last 5 years. While some may find the traditional decor of the Molly Gibson to be darker, I suggest checking out our sister hotel - The Hotel Aspen - located directlly across Main St. from the Molly Gibson with a much more contemporary look and feel. Check us out at HotelAspen.com.

Cheers,

Jeff Bay
General Manager

My second year here and nothing has changed. Really comfortable rooms, great service and hot tub(s)! and even a heated pool. With breakfast and apres skiing wine and food-Alana is a jewel running the evening apres ski-a lovely Aussie woman who knows her way around the kitchen-and people. Easy bus access to the other slopes and 5 minute walk to the action. Courtesy rides to and fro the airport-does it get any better? You won't go wrong here. If you're not staying at Little Nell, you should stay here then!

Room Tip: They have rooms with real fireplaces and rooms in the back off the street if you are looking for a r...

My wife and I stayed here for several nights beginning on New Year's eve for nearly a week. The staff here is excellent, as is the hotel's location, room size and amenities. They also put together a nice breakfast and apres ski for all guests staying at the lodge.

We will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: Upgrading to a fireplace is def. worth it!

We spent a week in Aspen at the Molly Gibson Lodge over Christmas. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the rooms were nice. Big comfortable bed and the hot tub was great for warming up after a day on the slopes. A 5 minute walk from downtown and the bus to snowmass picked up and dropped off right out the front. Après ski was a nice way to end the day with a variety of snacks and drinks. Would definitely recommend staying here.

My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon in Aspen (during Christmas), and we really enjoyed the comfort of the Molly Gibson Lodge. The room was very romantic with the hot tub and fireplace, and the overall atmosphere of the room was clean, chic and modern. The breakfast and evening snacks had a lot of variety, and the food selections were different from one day to the other. The staff were very friendly and ready to help in making our stay more enjoyable. After walking around Aspen in the cold for a little while, it was nice to come back to our cozy room and warm up next to the fireplace and/or sit in the hot tub. This is the best place in Aspen, and we highly recommend staying here.

My wife and I stayed for one night only (wish it could have been more) at the Molly Gibson hotel in Aspen. Here are some thoughts:

1) Room: Excellent, very modern, great bed and the fireplace was a nice surprise
2) Service: the staff was absolutely helpful and friendly
3) Location: It is just a 5 min walk to Aspen townsquare area
4) Price: It was fair, but considering the area, I must say it was a great deal

Only downside:

1) Wood floors: If you have a noisy neighbor above, you will hear it.

Overrall: Definitively we will stay here if we come back to Aspen.
