Trinidad, Colorado is a small historic mining town nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, at the base of Raton Pass. While it may be historic, the vast majority of travelers seeking lodging here are on their way to some place else. Trinidad has been a resting place on the Santa Fe Trail since the 1850’s.
LOCATION: The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites is conveniently located just off Interstate 25 at Exit 11. At this exit, you’ll find a Wendy’s fast food restaurant and Wal-mart. That’s about it.
SAFETY: This isn’t the ‘hood. Property was well-lit in the front, a bit dark in the rear. Try to park on the front side if possible. Inside, you’ll find a typical Holiday Inn, with key card access to rooms.
STAFF: This is where this property shines. Everyone you come in contact with, from the front desk to the restaurant, is friendly, attentive and professional.
PROPERTY: Fresh, clean and safe. General areas are well-kept and inviting. Not sure when it was built but it appears relatively new, as of this review.
ROOMS: Also fresh, clean and safe. Although well-appointed and inviting, they are less than perfectly quiet. Sound insulation is lacking. You can easily hear conversations in adjoining rooms, along with sniffles, belches, etc. Beds are reasonably comfortable, but not great. The soft and hard pillow collection is appreciated. Temperature control was a pain. Apparently the room heats past the set the temp because we experienced both the heat and the a/c throughout the night. Perhaps this isn’t how the system is designed to operate.
RESTAURANT: feels more like a lounge than a restaurant. It was Friday night and the bar was full of revelers. Typical, but reasonably behaved. Restaurant seating is mostly tables, along with three booths along one wall. Food was above average served by wonderfully attentive employees. On this dinner visit, there were two large groups with swarms of out-of-control children running and jumping throughout the restaurant. Parents were too busy drinking to care. Our server was wonderful and apologetic. At least I think she apologized. We couldn’t hear each other.
OVERALL: Staff are universally wonderful and should be commended for their attention to the details. Hotel leadership should be well-pleased with their excellent team of ambassadors. If we were to return to this property (Colorado natives), it would be because of the staff. Having said that, we’re on the fence about returning.
