We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Mountainside Inn. Chris at Telluride Alpine Lodging helped me secure a room at the best price, and he took time to answer all our first-time guest questions about air travel, weather, and transportation. He also got us a great rate on the Mountain Limo shuttle from the Montrose Airport.
We were very happy with our large, lovely room and referred to it as "home" during our week's stay. Our room was large and lovely. We made use of the kitchen's nice dishes, stove, toaster oven, coffeemaker, dishwasher, and large fridge to save money. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a nice window seat. Being used to warmer climates, we were worried about the lack of AC, but the windows and two table fans kept us cool.
The Mountainside Inn has a nice hot tub we enjoyed when it was covered and warm. Parking is limited, but a car isn't necessary within Telluride. If you travel by car, taking a short walk to park it elsewhere is no big deal.
I would caution travellers that the front desk at Mountainside Inn is not like most hotels. When we arrived, the office staff had stepped out, and we didn't see access to a public restroom. We had shipped a package to arrive at the main office, which delivered it to the Mountainside Inn office. Unfortunately, the staff wasn't sure where it was, so we had to wait until someone from the main office was out of a meeting to instruct the staff. In a rush to check out, I asked the desk staff if they could mail postcards, but they didn't have mail delivery and referred me to other nearby locations. Overall, these were very minor inconveniences that did not ruin a good experience, but adjust your customer service expectations slightly to meet a more casual front desk and general laid-back mountain summer schedule.
We'd definitely recommend staying at Mountainside Inn. We were happy to walk, or take the city bus from the stop around the corner, to get where we wanted to go. We were comfortable and got the rest we needed to have a great vacation.
