“Grand hotel on Grand Lake!”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

Rolled into the town after spending the day at Rocky Mountain Park. Absolutely loved the sleepy western feel and decided to spend the night. Found the Western Riveria on the shore of the lake to be just what we were looking for. Very nice and friendly gentlemen (the owner) working at the front desk, made sure we took a look at the room before accepting it. Very clean, very cute, and well-equipped. Loved sitting on the front porch enjoying ice cream from the locally owned stand, right around the corner. Highly recommend this hotel, and this town in general if you like a friendy and relaxed atmosphere.

The hotel is located at a small sandy beach at the lake. Rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. The view from the rooms is really great!! At the back of the hotel there is a small cafe and bakery where they sell great breakfast. We tried out the bagels and they were delicious! Any one visiting the Rocky Mountains N.P. should stay in Grand Lake instead of the over-commercialised city of Estes Park. Grand Lake is a cute and quiet small town and just a few minutes driving from the entrance to the National Park.

P.S. wireless internet is free in this hotel but is really slow

The location of this motel is amazing! You are ON the lake and on the main street, you can walk everywhere!
The rooms themselves, well they could use sone help. They are very dated from the sparkly popcorn ceiling to the 70's bathrooms. Everything is clean, but it sort of smells like a old-folks home! We bought an air-freshener the first day!
I'm shocked this is rated the best motel in Grand Lake, Spirit Lake and DavenHaven are much nicer!

I am staying here as I write this review...we had no accomodation booked as we drove into Grand Lake this afternoon, and found Western Riviera. Staff were very friendly, we staying in the motel rooms, extremely clean..the carpets had just been steam-cleaned so I had no qualms about letting my 9 month old crawl on the floor. Lovely views from the balcony. Highly recommend.

We spent two nights at the Western Riviera while on winter vacation in Colorado. Staff was very friendly, the room was comfortable, and the views outstanding. The staff helped us find a local snowmobile rental company as well as snowshoeing trails in RMNP. Overall a comfortable stay at the right price.

My gf and I made late plans to stay at the Western Riviera for Labor Day weekend. At first, we were bummed we didn't get into one of their Lakeshore cabins, but we were still extremely pleased with the courtyard cabins. The suite was huge and clean...and being on crutches for the entire trip, the bathroom was perfectly handicapped accessible. We didn't have the Lake view, but we were still less than a minutes walk away from the Lake and all of Main St.
The beds were standard hotel soft, and the only real annoyance was we could hear some bar or party a ways away until at least 1am.
Next time we go to Grand Lake, we'll definitely be staying here again...and we'll bring groceries for the full kitchen, so we won't have to spend $40 a meal! Ack! :-)

Thanks for the great stay!
