I stay at The Mountain Chalet in October each year for the John Denver celebration. It's been run by the Melville family since they first started the business in the 1950s, with many extensions and improvements along the way. The atmosphere is great, everyone is very friendly and helpful and our time there in October is like a big family house party. The home-cooked breakfast (a hot dish and a cold buffet) really sets one up for the day, and there are freshly baked cookies in the afternoon. Although most rooms do not have coffee making facilities, there is always coffee available in the lobby - if the pot runs dry one has only to ask and a fresh one is made. Water and lemonade are always on tap also.

We stayed here off season so I don;t know the in-season prices but off-season were very reasonable. The chalet is located in downtown, right by the ski mountain base and where all the resturants and shops are. There is a heated pool and workout area. The included breakfast was great, something different every morning (we got breakfast burritos). We'd definately stay here again.

Have stayed at the Mountain Chalet every year for over 10 years. Quaint and cozy and the staff is wonderful. Not a fancy place but a place where you will feel at home. Family owned and always ready to help out with anything...Highly recommend, unless you are a fancy schmancy person and require lots of pillows. enjoy

Room Tip: I like the rooms facing the park...love watching the dogs run and the frisbees fly and the mountain...

We couldn't have been happier with our experience. We were there for wedding and the staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcome.
They have the best cookies in the lobby and coffee anytime you need it.
Our room was lovely. Quirky with a wonderfully updated bathroom. We had a balcony overlooking the playing field accross the way. The ones overlooking the beautiful pool would be great too.
I would go back in a heartbeat.

Stayed at this hotel five times and enjoyed every visit, it's an unusual hotel in the modern world of Aspen, Colorado.. The chalet was built in the early 1950s and has been extended several times. It is still owned by the same family and has a lot of character. Coffee n cookies are in the lobby everyday and gusts are encouraged to partake and talk with fellow guests... No coffee making facilities in the rooms... The outside heated swimming pool is in the heart of the hotel and really nice to swim. F.. There is also a large hot tub, sauna and a well organised gym....The breakfast is very filling and the varied menu changes daily..... All in all a lovely, friendly hotel..

Room Tip: Outside rooms are the nicest...

Awesome hotel, great location, and easy to find, some amazing views and the service was top notch, I suggest the apartments for your stay! Such a beautiful hotel with heated everything! We stayed for two nights, full kitchen was the best part. Heated pool for laps, got run for relax, and nice gym for the lats! Recommended ten fold!

Stayed here because it was most reasonable rate we could find for Aspen at the time--we were put in a very small twin bed room, but everything was very nice and met our needs. Had problems with heater not working, so got immediate help from the manager. Very nice, clean, friendly, and good breakfast provided. We were especially happy for the free parking provided.
