“Very good hotel in a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

The best reason to stay at the Western Riviera is the location. Right on the beautiful lake and one block from downtown Grand Lake, which has all kinds of cool places to shop. Plenty of hiking nearby, and Rocky Mountain National Park. We had an upstairs room and it was very quiet and clean. There are chairs on the deck/walkway to sit and enjoy the view of the lake. They don't serve breakfast, but there is a bakery just around the corner where you can get breakfast sandwiches and pastries. The rooms are a little expensive, but you're paying for the location!

Room Tip: Pick an upstairs room for a better view and less noise.

I called and reserved a cabin for a week, then had to cancel because of work engagements. After I canceled I was able to make the trip out a few days later. I called what I thought was new condo we had rented closer to our friends, but had accidentally dialed Western Riviera. Tracy answered, and I started to talk about my reservation at the new condo. She told me it was the wrong place, and then said "YOU BLEW ME OFF!" Now there will no chance I will ever stay there &or recommend it to anyone.

What a wondeful vacation experieince! The staff was very helpful and ALWAYS friendly--even provided great recommendations for activities; as this was our first visit to Grand Lake. Rooms were clean, with beautiful lakeside views and the majestic Rocky Mountain peaks. Located right on Grand Lake, and in walking distance to the charming town with great restaurants and shops. Conveniently located Right outside of Rocky Mountain National Park where we saw several elk, some moose and even bald eagles. (Mornings and evenings are best for seeing the wildlfe). Fun filled days were spent kayaking on the lake, hiking in the park and enjoying the sunshine and fresh mountain air. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at "The Riv" and look forward to returning soon!

The worst motel I've stayed in my life time.
It was very old, dirty, and noisy also.
Everything was so old and we couldn't sleep all night long because of the noise from the upstairs every time they stepped and used water, and another noise all around the room Ike the sound of motors.

Also it was too expensive. The staff was dishonest also.
I'll never come back

Room Tip: Avoid this place for your time and money.

Western Riviera Hotel is perfectly located on the shores of Grand Lake, with nothing but a sand volley ball court between you and the beautiful lake. Our upstairs room had large enough balcony that we could sit and watch the sun go down over the lake. The room was clean and adequate, but it was more of a Day's Inn setup than a nice $140 room. 'Course you don't come to Grand Lake to sit in your room; you come for the lake and the town and the mountains.

We were sceptical about renting the Treehouse but after my phone conversation with Tracy I am so glad we decided to rent. Tracy was warm, friendly and welcoming so we decided to travel and stay at the Western Riviera. The Treehouse was a beautiful upper 2 bedroom clean, comfortable, private cabin overlooking Grand Lake. Thanks Tracy for making our stay so relaxing. It was great to meet you and talk about the area.

Room Tip: If you don't mind spending the extra money, rent the treehouse. It is private, has a full kitch...

The location we stayed in (courtyard cabins) was 1 block from main street, and 2 blocks from the lake. They were having a slow weekend and upgraded us to their nicest cabin since we had a friend coming up to stay for the weekend.

The staff were SO helpful, friendly, and the customer service was great. We were impressed by the ammenities, staff, and location.

We will be going back again and recommend Western Riviera for their array of housing options.
