“Yes to the Pool, No to the Lodge”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

The best thing about this hotel was the breakfast and the closeness to the pool. Otherwise we were not impressed. The hotel had run out of certain amenities that we wanted, like decaf coffee. The desk also refused us shuttle service when we were leaving even though we had gotten shuttle service to get to the hotel. We had an issue when renting a movie in our room and couldn't watch it but they refused to refund the cost of the movie to us.

For a $200 price, we got a $30 experience. It felt like they didn't really care about our experience and that they were just relying on their proximity to the pool to keep guests happy. Very disappointing.

This high-end motel is conveniently located just uphill from the Glenwood Springs Pool, a five-minute walk, door-to-door. Parking is located to the rear of the lodge, with easy access to the rooms. Our room was nicely appointed, quiet, with a small balcony from which we had a view of trees and one end of the pool. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating and we slept very well. A minor note for those who enjoy fresh air: if you keep the windows open at night, wherever you might stay near downtown, trains pass through Glenwood Springs with regularity throughout the night.

Normally my husband and I would not spent $189/night for a motel, so this was a splurge, but well worth it! The price included pool passes and towels for the span of our visit, which equalized the cost relative to some other hotel options. Also included was daily breakfast at the poolside grill, which we did not use, but which would be a huge saver for families. For an extra $10pp/day one may use the Health Club located on the pool grounds. We did not, so I cannot comment on its quality.

Located next door to the town's historic hotel once frequented by 19th/20th century luminaries, Glenwood Lodge has all expected modern amenities and solid construction - without the creakiness of history that might afflict the more romantic option. However we found that grander hotel to be a magical place for afternoon and evening meals, which we enjoyed at their courtyard bar.

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room, and the staff obliged. We were on an upper floor at the end of the buildi...

Green Features: The motel encourages and uses green practices, something I appreciate. I didn't analyze these practices thoroughly this visit.

We elected to stay here on our way to Grand Junction. The room was recently remodeled and was more modern than we had anticipated.

With your room you got a pass for the hot springs across the street and a ticket for breakfast at the hot springs the next morning. A nice deal.

Rooms are small but very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was AMAZING!!! They had custom omelets and fresh made pancakes and hash browns along with the original continental breakfast. Great bonus to stay was being able to enjoy pool after a long day in town.

Practically on the interstate, this gorgeous inn sits between beautiful mountains overlooking the huge steaming warm springs pools, the use of which are free to hotel guests at all times. A complimentary delicious breakfast is served next to the pools in the quiet morning while you enjoy the view of the water and mountains around you. The two very large pools have different temperatures so you can make your own choices for comfort levels. The hotel is staffed with very accommodating professionals, rooms are comfortable and attractive. Ours had a balcony with chairs and a table overlooking the pools and mountains. The town itself, in walking distance, is charming but we didn't explore. This was a place we didn't want to leave, so we went for a peaceful early morning dip before we continued driving on our way west.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pools, with a balcony if possible.

We live in Fort Collins, CO and wanted a weekend get away with the family that wasn't too far away. This was perfect! It was off season in April and there weren't really any crowds. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. I have traveled extensively, and this was probably the best complimentary breakfast I have had. We took the kids to the caves and adventure park. We all enjoyed that very much. The kids would have liked the bigger rides to have been open, but it was off-season. The only disappointment was that the slides were not running at the hot springs pool.

We stopped by on our trip from Aches National Park to Denver. We are glad that this one was on our plan. Very pleasant stay. The hot spring pool was excellent. Walking distance to most of restaurants. We tried Polanka, an excellent Polish cuisine family restaurant.

Green Features: LED and CFL light bulbs was used to save lighting energy.
