Colorado hospitality at its finest. Innkeeper Sam is very gracious and responsive. We arrived very late for our six night stay, and Sam just gave us the keys to King Suites 5 & 6 and said that we could register in the morning......great start for tired travelers. His maintenance men, Billie and Davie, are equally hospitable and friendly, and the housekeepers are polite and efficient. A side note, Billie (Bill Hitz) is an ward winning wildlife photographer, and we bought a book of his splendid published works. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated, and adequately spacious with a kitchenette and dining nook. The king beds are very comfortable. There is a nice deck right outside rooms 5 & 6, perfect for sipping your morning beverage in the cool mountain air as you soak up the pleasant ambiance. Idaho Springs is a great base location with easy access to roads that take you to Mt. Evans, Winter Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, Georgetown and Silver Plume, Central City, and all the ski villages on the other side of the Eisenhower tunnel. The inn is a terrific value for the price. We will stay there again!
