“Best lodging value in Aspen”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Staff was friendly and helpful, room comforatble and clean, great location, great breadfast. I loved the old black and white photos of Aspen in the 50's lining the halls. Front desk staff scheduled taxi pick-up early on departure day. Homemade pancakes and eggs for breakfast with fruit and fresh squeezed juice. Pool and hot-tub of older vintage, but worked for us.

Great location. Easy going atmosphere. Comfortable but not fancy but good value.
Breakfasts were unexpected treat as were daily chocolate chip cookies.
Rooms are not fancy but roomy. Friendly atmosphere.
Would stay there again.

For Aspen, the price was very good. The breakfast, made to order specials daily, left nothing to be desired. We walked to the brewery and other restaurants. The pedestrian zone is one block away.

Oh, did I mention the cookies and cappacino machine in the lobby?

We had a lower level room and it was spacious and clean.

Room Tip: Room 101 at the end of the hall was quiet and convenient to the free parking.

While this hotel is older (1954) and perhaps undersized compared to the splashy digs surrounding it, I don't think you could find a better place to stay in Aspen. I'm not even going to say "for the money". While they sport the lowest room rates around, they give big value and lots of attention. Their full breakfast is a gem in today's white bread and sugary cereal continental offerings you find in most place. Their staff are attentive, the atmosphere is cozy, the rooms are updated and super clean, with a fridge in every room. The pool is good, and they offer a hot tub, sauna, exercise room, fireplaces in the lobbies, and did I mention the breakfast?

Room Tip: Every room is good. They have an elevator and underground parking.

It's almost impossible to find an affordable room in Aspen. By other cities' standards this hotel still isn't exactly cheap but it's less expensive than just about any other place in Aspen. But don't let the price fool you, it's a great place to stay.

The location is right in the middle of things, a block from most of the shops, across the street from a park, a short walk to the gondola. We spent 3 nights there and never got in the car until we had to leave.

The room was small but still very comfortable and homey. It's not fancy but that also means it's not stuffy or pretentious.

The breakfast was also a pleasant surprise. I didn't really expect much for a free breakfast but it was actually quite good (and don't forget to get some fresh-squeezed orange juice from the fancy juice machine).

I will definitely seek this hotel out the next time I visit Aspen because I can't justify spending more when the Mountain Chalet delivers on a great value.

Room Tip: Our room faced the park to the North which was very nice if you don't mind the occasional bus dr...

We love this place and the people associated with it. The owners, the staff, and even the other guests are all like family. We have stayed in a variety of rooms and prefer the ones facing the mountain but there really are no "bad rooms". The location is great, within walking distance of all of downtown Aspen. They do so many little things that you wouldn't get if you paid more for the big-name places with no character. We are now spoiled.

GLCAL,

Wow, what an amazing concept: stay with us instead of your condo? It's good to know we are doing such a good job at hospitality. Thank you for this great recommendation.

So glad we could spoil you!

Our stay was August 23 and 24th 2013. We stayed in the Garmisch Superior Hotel Room. Very nice with a balcony. Plenty of room. We could walk to all the shops and restaurants. Friendly staff and comfortable environment. The heated pool was very nice. Great free hot breakfast and cookies in the afternoon. This was are first time staying here. We will stay here from now on and will recommend to all of our friends here in Denver.
