“So Glad We Passed Grand Lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2011

We had planned on staying in Grand Lake after coming down Trail Ridge but found the people in town snooty. Moving down into Granby and eating at Mavricks (YUMMY!!), one of the waitstaff suggested this motel. It looks a little cheesy from the outside but the rooms inside were perfect for the family. Two rooms for privacy, wi-fi, better cable than at home and close to everything! Dee was incredibly accomodating and always available. I would recommend this place to EVERYONE! Thanks for a great stay!

Last month I spent my birthday relaxing at Hot Sulphur Springs, after a day of snowshoeing. I decided to stay at the Ute Trail Motel based on all the good reviews.
It certainly didn't disappoint!
Dee Kitchens, the owner, went out of her way to make it a memorable stay. She is wonderful! The rooms are very clean, if not updated, and quite comfortable and cozy. It's like a trip back in time to the 60s, when the hotel was built. It is also quiet at night, which is very important, since the train tracks are a 1/2 a mile away.
They offer flannel robes and towels to use at the nearby springs, offer discount tickets to the springs, and discount coupons to several of the restaurants in this tiny little town. The room rates are very reasonable as well.
I would highly recommend staying here. I will definitely be back!

Dee, who owns the hotel is friendly, helpful, and a delight to talk to. The motel is charming. Rooms are clean, and VERY affordable. Dee has coupons for restaurants in town and discounted pool passes when you check in. Robes are available for the pools. We have stayed at the Ute more than once, and already have plans to go again. We had a great time!

A couple things to be aware of: the smell of the hot springs gets into everything, and that includes your clothing and the sheets. Don't let it bother you! Everything is clean, but the sulphur smell doesn't come out. Also, the walls are thin, so be a good neighbor and be prepared to hear your neighbor. Our friends solved that problem with an iPod and small speakers. Don't let these things bother you! This is a great place to stay!

I have never stayed at a place like this, nor have have I ever lived in the country. Staying at this cosy and very clean old style motel was very new to me and I enjoyed every minute of it! I loved this experience!

We had the pleasure of finding this place returning home from a camping vacation. The owner, Dee, and Jim at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Our room was nicely decorated and spotlessy clean. Every room is unique and has an additional bedroom if needed. Our room comfortably slept a family of 5. Don't judge this wonderful place without stopping in and checking out a room. You won't find a nicer place to stay and the rates are the best in town.

I am staying in this motel with my Russian friend at least 2 times a year and believe me this is the best choice in town. Not too fancy but quiet, cozy and extremely clean. I recommended this motel to all my friends and they also like it very much.

We rented a "king suite" which turned out to be through the garage door and down into the basement. It's not modern or fancy - wood panel, beige carpet, acoustic tile ceilings, etc. - but it is comfortable, private, quiet, and SPOTLESSLY clean. There was a full fridge and small cooking area, so you could easily bring food. They even had a handful of movies right up to very recent releases. Very close to the wonderful hot springs.

If you want ambiance, this is not the place for you. If you want a place to crash, sleep well, and spend your days elsewhere, it's not a bad option.
