The location of the inn is excellent - close to the main street. However, you have to be aware of a few things. There is no air conditioning. We were there in the summer, and it was a trick to open the French doors. Also, one of the blinds was broken. The room did have a very small fan, but a larger one would have been appreciated. Also, 3 light bulbs were out: one outside the door, one in the hallway and one by the bed. The management did replace the one by the bed but not the other two. The room has a mini-kitchen, with a little sink, small fridge, microwave and coffee maker but no coffee. Also, there is no closet; just four hooks which I found to be inconvenient. You expect to have a place to hang up clothes. (This would also be a problem during ski season for jackets and coats and other items of apparel). You do not get daily maid service; I am not sure how that is arranged and how often it would be available. The room has nice but minimal furnishings: bed, two night stands and dresser - no chairs or tables. Only one picture decorated the room. The TV is a small old model variety. I guess to get more paper products, towels or bedding, you would have to go to the management office which is two blocks from the inn. We had a Groupon, so the price was excellent for Telluride.
