While on a 2 week camping trip across the western states this September we stopped in Idaho Springs after dark after a long day of driving, so camping was not an option for that night. We felt very fortunate to happen upon the Argo and it's very helpful, friendly front desk staff. The young woman working at the desk that evening located an amazing room for us right on the Clear Creek. It was great to have a hot shower and kick back on the balcony with a glass of wine, listening to the creek flow by. Room was larger than usual hotel rooms, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is just danish, juice and coffee, as we were told when we checked in. A certificate with discounts at many local restaurants and attractions was given to us as well. We stayed here again on our way back to the Midwest, as we were very pleased with our first experience and the great people there, including Tommy who also works at the front desk. The second time there were no creek-side rooms available, so Tommy found us a very large 2 bedroom with 3 queen beds and a fireplace for only a few dollars more than we had paid for the creek side room. There are areas down by the creek for sitting and a fire ring complete with barbeque tools for guests to use. Great location, easy walk to the grocery store, restaurants and attractions. The people in town are very friendly and helpful as well. Truly enjoyed our stay in Idaho Springs. If you are expecting a fancy hotel and full hot breakfast this is not it. If you are expecting a safe, clean, decent place with a wonderful view and the ambiance of the creek lulling you to sleep and friendly helpful staff, then this definitely is it.
