“Meets expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Tied for the cheapest room I could find in WP. Same amenities as any chain. Oldish, but not run down. Clean. Fridge, small microwave. Very hot water. The hot tub was indoors. Holds a dozen people. Not quite hot enough. The pool is small, but OK enough for kids. The pastry for breakfast was packaged. The wi-fi was OK.

The room was a bit cold. I monkeyed with the heating unit, but it didn't get warmer.

We stayed here one night while waiting for our condo to be ready. I'm glad it was only one night. The room was small with 2 queen beds. It was clean, but dated with some old (I hope) carpet stains. It wasn't a roach motel, but it is certainly an old motel in need of a facelift. Courteous staff but his english was not very good.

Things I liked: Neat, Close to winter park resort. Affordable, Free Coffee/hot chocolate, muffins,Danish, and Plum Cakes. Heating is reliable. Walking distance to several restaurants, bar and shops. Also, it is in the walking distance from Epic Mountain Ski Rental (we rented twice from this place, strongly recommend it and also suggest to rent it online to get extra savings). You can have a very hot shower in the morning however, in the evening it can be just warm sometimes. So, that can be little frustrating. Other than that it is a very good value motel. Also, if you come late (which usually happens if you are flying to Denver and then drive to Winter Park), you can ring the bell as the owner lives in the office so you can pick up the room keys. Tip: if you are leaving winter park on sundays and have to fly and if the weather is bad, I strongly recommend to leave no later than 1pm to have at least 4.5 to 5hrs of time before your flight departure.

This motel is nothing fancy at all but was perfect for a long weekend. The room was very clean, had a comfy bed, the location is super convenient to the downtown places and it's on the ski shuttle bus route. We were out all the time so just needed a decent place to lay my head at night. Would stay here again.

We just returned from our 10th stay at the Sundowner Motel on our yearly ski trips to Winter Park. The motel has the best location, the best prices, the best aminities and very friendly and helpful owners. We enjoy the pool and hot tub after a day of skiing. Many of the best restaurants are within easy walking distance. The Lift bus stops are nearby. The Sundowner is definately the best value motel at Winter Park.

On the main Highway 40, that runs from I-70 toward the Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park.Theuropean-style motel is small with two levels, exterior corridors and stairwells. The owners are very friendly people from Poland, and always polite but sometimes difficult to understand.
There's a small pool and hot tub. Amenities include TV/cable, A/C, a small fridge and microwave, also a coffee maker. The rooms are clean but not new. For a fair price, this is a great location in town, walking distance to restaurants, ski rentals and the park.
