We stayed at this location a couple of nights during the last week of September, 2012. This was not our first stay here, and we will certainly go back in the future. I really enjoy the laid back, quiet nature of the unit. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. There is a well equipped workout room and spa area, if you are so inclined. I highly recommend this location if you are needing lodging in the Gunnison, Co area.

We stayed for a night during the USA National pro cycling race. It is an older hotel but quiet. The back has a golf course that guests are not allowed on but it is nice to sit and watch. They have chairs and picnic tables along the hotel so quests can sit. The front has a small pond with running water and a little bridge next to the office. They still had hotel keys for rooms, but they might be in the process of going to cards someday. It was clean comfortable and enjoyable . If back in the area we would return. Breakfast had cereal, oatmeal, and muffins and Donuts plus coffee and orange juice. So not a lot to pick from for breakfast. We did not try the next door Trough restaurant deciding to venture out into Gunnison instead.

This is the second time we've stayed at the Water Wheel Inn. The Inn is showing it's age although I still think it's a good deal. There's not many hotel choices in Gunnison. We had a second floor room and were there for 2 nights.. It was clean and quiet. The Inn appeared to be only about half full - so we didn't really have many neighbors. We had a room with 2 queen size beds and were really only in the room a very short while in the evening and to sleep at night. Then we were gone all day. We did not go over to their breakfast so I can't comment on that. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was functional (although the shower handle was a bit tricky to manuever). There is a nice restaurant and bar next door, The Trough, which we ate at one night.

Choices of places to stay are thin in this area. We were a little disappointed with the quality of the place, a bit dated and scruffy. Most of the other guests were workmen driving trucks who all left noisily very early for work. Breakfast was a bit synthetic....but it was ok. Very unreliable internet connection.

Room Tip: Ask to be kept away from workmen with noisy trucks and early starts.

Our family and friends stayed at the Water Wheel in in Gunnison Colorado in September 2011. We probably booked half the hotel for our family wedding. There were other events in the area, so the Water Wheel was pretty booked. However, because our family needed to make some last minute changes, we needed to work closely with staff, especially Thelma. They worked wonders. All the staff bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and calm. The rooms are being upgraded, not luxurious, but the beds are great and there the bathrooms are neat and tidy and clean. Their breakfast consists of pastries, juices, milk, yougert. What makes this place special is the staff and the views.

Room Tip: just don't pick a 'smokers' room..:); the restaurant next door " the trough" h...

Once upon a time I feel certain that the Water Wheel was a nice place to spend some leisurely time............but not any more. Check out the new Holiday Inn Express just up the road.
