Great Sand Dunes Lodge
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Mosca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 20, 2008

We stayed at GSDL last week for 2 nights. The NP itself is in the middle of nowhere (nearest towns are 15-20 miles away) so you simply cannot beat staying at the lodge that is literally at the edge of the park property. We stayed in a newly renovated king suite that was simply wonderful. Apparently it was one of a few rooms fixed up this summer so everything was new including the carpeting, bathroom, and flat screen TV on the wall. We had our own private porch that gave us a great view of the dunes and the sunset. We paid $125/night and it was well worth it to be a 10-15 minute drive away from the dunes as opposed to saving a little $$ to stay 40-45 minutes away in one of the nearest towns. The owners were very helpful and I hope that they continue with their renovation plan to all of the other room as they can match their superior location with superior accommodations in all rooms.

Great Sand Dunes Park is worth a visit, and this is the place to stay. The views are amazing, and if you like Hummingbirds, they are everywhere. The room was dated but clean. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. The indoor pool was also a welcome feature. There are grills and outside tables available and I would recommend stopping in advance and buying food to prepare (the restaurant/general store combo near the lodge is not very good).

We had a great stay here. It is clean and comfortable. Very peaceful sitting outside on the porch with awesome views of the Great Sand Dunes. Dozens of humming birds were flying around the feeders out back which were fun to watch and take pictures of. The hike up to Zapatta Falls was really cool, But be sure that you can endure the climb and is very cold water and slippery rocks that you have to go through. The Great Sand Dunes were fun. Walking through the water to reach the dunes was fun. Difficult to reach the top and be sure to wear sunscreen and have plenty of water to drink. We would love to stay at this lodge again. The owners were very helpful and friendly. There is only one restaurant that closed kind of early. There are grills to cook food by the pool but no refridgerators, so bring a cooler.
