My wife and I along with our adult daughter from Texas spent one night at the "Mile High Inn" on Sunday, December 23rd. There are a lot of positive reviews already posted and we totally agree with what others have said. My wife and I stayed in the "Victorian Rose" room and our daughter stayed in the "Memories of the Heart" room. We arrived a little early and we got to see all the rooms because they were just finishing the cleaning. All the rooms were nice but for a street view (not to mention the incredible mountain views) you would need to stay in one of the rooms we stayed in or "Little Daisy" which is sandwiched between them. But...that said, all of the rooms looked very nice and I would have been okay in any of them. If you opt for a shared bath room, there are two baths at each end of the hall and they were very clean. When we arrived the town was filled with people and we had to park a few blocks from the Inn, but just as we were told, most of the day visitors were gone by 4:00 PM and I then parked right across the street and unloaded the luggage. After following wife and daughter around from shop to shop, we ate dinner at "15.Quince Grill & Cantina". I had been looking forward to dinner there after reading other reviews and we were not disapointed. This is a very popular spot so we had to wait at the bar for a short time, and after about half of a beer our table was ready. My wife and daughter are both vegetarians so there are always a few questions before ordering and the staff were all very helpful. I could go on and on about the meal but I will just say that all of our meals were fantastic and I would have liked to have sampled everything I saw coming out of the kitchen. Also, as others mentioned, the margaritas are very good, but only if you have a designated driver if you are leaving town. We were glad we were staying overnight and we enjoyed a walk around town after dark and my wife and daughter managed to find a few more shops that were still open. Quick note on that, I normally am not very excited about visiting shops and will usually arrange a meeting place for later, but all of the shop owners were very friendly and very informative about Jerome, past and present. I actually enjoyed shopping and you would not normally hear me say that. So...to finish up, slept great and headed to the grill for breakfast. We had looked at a menu and because I thought I had read that you could apply the free "two egg breakfast" to another choice, we at first were disapointed when we found out that this was not the case. The waiter patiently explained to us three times that the vouchers could only be used for the "two egg breakfast". So we ordered the included "two egg breakfast", the eggs three different styles, with the included potatoes and toast. Daughter had mentioned no meat because they were vegetarians and we were all surprised when the waiter came back and said the chef had offered to prepare stir fried vegetable side dishes instead of the meat. My wife and daughter were very impressed since normally not getting the meat means just not getting the meat. The breakfasts were all totally excellent and even though we normally would want hash browns with our eggs, the potatoes that came with the "two egg breakfast" were so good that I would have ordered them over hashbrowns anyway. Everything about our stay in Jerome was great and we will look farward to going back.
