Americas Best Value Inn Bighorn Lodge
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Grand Lake
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Honestly I can't remember staying at a cleaner hotel its certainly one of their strong points. Rooms could use a little revamp and there's not much in them, but the location and overall value makes it worth staying here.

My boyfriend and i were on a 6 day, 5 night backpacking/camping trip. Half way through we encountered bad weather and decided to stay in Grand Lake. We wanted a decent, but cheap place. This was the second place we stopped at and stayed. The lady at the counter was very friendly, polite and accommodating. The price was still a bit high at about $80, but the place was clean. All in all an average place. The prices of other hotels were even higher, even the shady motel down the road wanted more. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a decent night sleep and don't need luxury.

The price is very very high. Access the downtown main street on foot, as well as explore the western side of Rocky Mountian National Park.. Breakfast is a joke. It was very quiet for a great night's sleep.

Overpriced for what you get. Would try to stay elsewhere but would stay again if I had to. No real breakfast, just coffee and the usual cheap danish. Bakery in town just off main street was very good.

We enjoyed the hotel for what it was and what it allowed us to do. The rooms are well maintained. Access the downtown on foot, as well as explore the western side of Rocky Mountian National Park. They do have a continental breakfast, but not much to it.

We read the reviews before booking this place. The rooms are massive with wonderful views of the mountains. The decor is not fancy, but ultra clean and VERY comfortable. The price is very affordable and we loved being able to walk down "main street" to kayak in the gorgeous lake. The rooms included a refrigerator, microwave, table and chairs. Excellent value for a family of five. We left the huge screened window open to enjoy the sweet mountain air. It was very quiet for a great night's sleep.

We stayed twice in the last two weeks. The room we had had only one bed which left a lot of room for a table and chairs. We didn't have to use the microwave or fridge, but it was nice to have them just in case. The Lodge is located on the outskirts of Grand Lake, so you don't get a lot of foot traffic in front of the place, but it is close enough to walk to dinner or shopping.

There is no coffee maker in the room but there is coffee and juice and danish for breakfast in the office. The couple who run it were very nice, even after I told them I broke something in the room.

We will stay here again the next time we are in Grand Lake.
