This "Lodge" hotel on the main drag of Winter Park, CO (U.S. 40) provides a very hard mattress and a fairly clean room. The train passes right behind the hotel and unless you like hearing trains a lot in the night, you probably want to avoid this hotel and look for lodging on the east side of the road (this is on the west side). The breakfast is definitely not something to brag about (nothing hot unless you call making instant oatmeal with hot water "hot"). For the price, it was not a real bargain but O.K. for the budget.

Great hosts. Very welcoming. Fantastic downtown location for food and drink and transport to the mountain. Cannot thank Albert and Carol enough for their advice and kindness. Cannot fault cleanliness of motel. All areas, reception, rooms and pool maintained to a high standard. We have been to Winter Park four times now and stayed somewhere different each time. Will definitely be staying at Olympia Lodge on our next visit!!

The sign in front says Olympia Motel, not lodge. The sign is accurate. The rooms are poor like you'd expect from a motel. About the same quality as Super8.

Very basic room, found trash/hair ties underneath one of the beds, which means cleaning might not have been done all that well. But overall, it was a great room. Like I said, very basic, not fancy but quiet and got a good nights rest. We had a large suite with 3 beds, 2 tv's and a mini fridge. Beds were comfortable! Cost was low at $104 per night. Front desk was nice, pool was small but my kids enjoyed it and breakfast in the main lodge was good, typical continental with bagels, yogurt, cereal, good to grab quickly before you head up to the slopes. Also they have a ski shuttle that picks you up about 50 feet from the front of the lodge!

I have been going to Winter Park for over 20 years. I have stayed in many places during that time. I can honestly say that this was one of the most pleasant places I have stayed. Albert and Carol are such wonderful people. So friendly and accommodating. You just know good people when you meet them and that describes this couple.
We stayed in a room with a king size bed. The room was very spacious. It was very clean and the bed was so very comfortable. The hot tub was great after a day of skiing. It is conveniently located just off of the lobby. It is a very nice indoor pool and hot tub area. The shuttle picks you up in front of the hotel. It was much a perfect stay. This will now be our home in Winter Park for one week out of the year from now on!!

We've stayed here twice while skiing at Winter Park Resort and it is always a clean, comfortable, warm place to come back to after a day on the slopes. The hot tub is fabulous after skiing all day, the continental breakfast with big bagels and cream cheese is perfect before going skiing. The owners are so friendly and helpful and we really saved by using one of the ski and stay packages that included lift tickets with our room. We will definitely stay here again!

Basic room with basic amenities. Hotel located on major street within a 7 minute walk from the main shopping/eating area. Nothing special
