Camel's Garden Hotel & Condominiums
Ranked #4 of 11 Hotels in Telluride
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We stayed at Camel's Garden as part of a larger group. From the moment of our arrival until our departure a week later, we were truly impressed. It's a relatively small hotel (33 rooms), but service was top-notch. Autumn at the front desk and General Manager Mike were so gracious and very accommodating to our group. Any request was greeted with a smile and immediate service. The entire staff was very professional. The hotel is located at the base of the mountain (within steps of the gondola) with ski rental (excellent service, there, too!) and storage right in the building. Our room was spacious with adequate storage, fireplace, flat screen TV, and clean and roomy bathroom. Room lighting was very good. The hotel is conveniently located just a few blocks from the center of town with charming shops and restaurants and the local shuttle bus stops right in front of the hotel. We will definitely make this a must-stay on our next trip to Telluride!

Wonderful place to stay in Telluride, about 200 feet from the Gondola. Nice Restuarant, Ski/Rental shop and ski locker in the hotel. Happy hour each day with wine and cheese/crackers. Superb Staff and accepted our UPS ski shipment days earlier than our arrival. Shipped skis home by leaving them with the front desk staff.

The best hotel in Telluride. Very nice all around. Helpful and friendly staff, excellent location, wonderful rooms, fireplace in the room, and a nice wine and cheese hour every evening. My flight in was long, cancelled at first and then deverted to Cortez, all I wanted was my room and a big glass of ice water. To my surprise a knock on my door and Matt was there with a pitcher of ice water. That is service....and the Camel's Garden delivers on all levels.

My 1st time to come to Camel's Garden during the ski season. It is as awesome as it is during the summer. The convenience of being at the base of the gondola and being able to rent and store my skis and boots right there was really nice. The room and the fireplace was super nice and we especially liked the complimentary wine and cheese every afternoon in the lobby. Our room was very quiet and had a beautiful view of the snow covered mountains. The rooms are all a nice size with very nice bathrooms and excellent hot showers. The staff at the Camel's Garden continues to be excellent. They are very helpful and knowledgable about everything in Telluride! I hope I get to go back soon. This will always be my hotel when I visit Telluride!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, but if you take your dog, stay on the first floor. I think most rooms on 1...

My wife and I were in town celebrating our wedding with our friends who had chosen the hotel. We had a wonderful time. Everyone at the hotel was very nice and helpful.

Matt took care of us each night we were there. He ran the wine and cheese hour in the lobby, which was much appreciated. After an incident that kept us from being able to use the hot tub he made sure that we were still able to enjoy it that evening. Those are just a couple of things that he did for us during our stay.

We will return to the Camel's Garden at any chance we get. We hope Matt is still working there when we go back.

We stayed at Camel's Garden in October, 2012, which admittedly is the slow time of year for Telluride, after summer and before the snow falls. Matt and the rest of the staff made us feel so at home. The room was phenomenal (room # 203) with a gorgeous view of the mountains!
Plus, the complimentary breakfast was delish! I can't wait to come back for skiing! Thanks, Camel's Garden for a wonderful visit to Telluride.

Room Tip: Room 203 has a great view!
