“Never again!!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I booked a night at Fairplay Valiton based on reviews and limited availability of hotel sites. When I arrived, there was not anyone present at the desk but there was a sign pointing me to the bar. David was extremely helpful serving as the bartender, desk clerk, and all things necessary. They did not have my reservation but he found a room as the place was deserted. My room was EXTREMELY dated with the worst mattress and pillows I've ever had. The room was hot with no ventilation. After a sleepless night, I wandered out to find coffee...breakfast...someone to say hello to. NOTHING!!! Everything was dark and deserted. It seemed I was the only person in the place and that was almost 8:00 in the morning. And for that... I paid $141 for the night, though I did not receive a receipt. Never again!!!

I just left the Valiton, we had a very nice stay, rooms were clean, beds were extremely comfortable. Bathroom was newly renovated. We eat breakfast in the hotel restaurant, very was very good and professional and tended to our needs. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when II'm in the area. Owner was there to great guests and was friendly.

The hotel is a older hotel in Fairplay Colorado, Rooms are smaller but Okay, Bathrooms are newer however still small. When getting ready to check out I did a Quick look around and found a sock that was not ours!!!
They are pet friendly.
For the Price at 100.00 a night I will look to stay some where else next time.

Located downtown historic Fairplay, Colorado is the Fairplay-Valiton Hotel offers somewhat rustic accommodations in an interesting area. Rooms are clean and comfortable. WiFi internet access is included at no additional cost.
When, one evening, I inquired regarding dinner, the owner suggested a nearby restaurant which was great.
Recommended.

Room Tip: My room faced the street, which was fine. Traffic was light.

If you're looking for the highest level of rudeness and incompetence, you've come to the right place.

Personal recommendation: Find a nice spot behind a dumpster where the rats will treat you better. If you have any sense you'll stay in another hotel or sleep your car.

Room Tip: Try sleeping in your car.
