“Dated darling of a place to stay”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We and our friends enjoyed our stay in Grand Lake. The hotel is dated but clean and accommadating. The staff were pleasant. They have a "killer" view of the lake. I wanted to just sit in the swing and watch the lake but there were too many other hikes and things to do in the area. I hear they are trying to update their look as the budget allows.
Visit Fat Cats for a great breakfast buffet.

We stayed for 2 nights in March 2013. The hotel is not fancy - it's clean and comfortable, and was good for our needs. The woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful - she gave us some good suggestions for restaurants. She was also very helpful when I made an error in on-line booking, and accidentally booked the wrong room. We would stay here again. We could hear people talking in the next room, and some footsteps upstairs; consider this if it would bother you.

The lady at check in was very nice and helpful. Our room was clean and warm. The satellite TV quit working at about 9:00pm, and we couldn't call anybody about it because the front desk closes at 8:00. Not too big of a deal though. There was a newspaper article hanging in the lobby saying that this hotel will be on Travel Channel's Hotel Impossible in March 2013.

Our company Christmas Party was held at the Western Riviera Lake Side Events Center this year and was catered by Wild Horse Catering. Over the years, we have held our party at multiple venues in Grand County and we received more positive feedback from our group this year than ever before!

Being located on the lake, recieving a fresh snow just in time for our christmas party and having the deck surrounded by old fashion christmas lights made the location extremely special. Inside, we received multiple comments from guests commenting on how warm and intimate the space was compared to years pasts.

Many of our guest opted to stay the night at the Western Riviera Motel and were allowed to relax and fully enjoy themselves without the worry of driving to the other end of the county following the party. Chris and her team at Wild Horse Catering took amazing care of us and everyone was served with an amazing meal with unbelievable timing.

Combining the class and warmth of the Events Center, the quality of food and professionalism of Wild Horse Catering and the attractive price, I am certain we could not have received a better value or experience in the county! Everyone, including Santa, had a party we will not soon forget. I look forward to repeating the entire eperience in 2013.

This year we held our company Christmas party in the Western Riviera Events center and it was absolutely lovely. The facility was clean and of course the view was FABULOUS!!! I would highly recommend this venue for any occasion be it a wedding, reunion or larger party. The catering from Wild Horse was supreme......delicious food.

Located right on the edge of Grand Lake, all the rooms have a wonderful view, with patios for sitting outside. It's right in the middle of Grand Lake village, so you can easily walk to restaurants and shopping. The rooms are modest but clean, comfortable and quiet. Great deal!

My husband and I stayed here for one night in August. This was our second visit and it was great to be back. The location here is absolutely beautiful- right on the lake shore with no road in between (there is the hotel car park, but this is very quiet and does not obstruct the view at all- this is coming form someone with a severe aversion to cars blocking views- so it Really is not an issue!).The view across the lake to the mountains beyond is idyllic- you will never forget it. We were given exactly the same room we stayed in four years ago and were very happy! The room is a really good size, and very clean and comfortable.Our room was on the ground floor, opening onto the beautiful deck with outdoor tables and chairs-this was so gorgeous we decided to have a take -out picnic supper on the deck and enjoy the views, rather than go out to eat- best table in town!The staff were extremely friendly (remembered us from last visit!)and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms have access straight onto the beautiful deck
