Chose to stay here over the chain hotels in Keystone based on other Trip advisor reviews. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The room was just average. It was clean and well maintained, but a bit dated. The beds need to be replaced. The springs were worn and the bedding was ok. The towels were also paper thin.
Staff was very helpful with our air conditioning problem. One of the knobs was missing off of our window unit so they adjusted it with some pliers and left them for us to use if needed.
Tip: Don't plan to start your day early as breakfast doesn't begin until 7:30. Breakfast food was typical and limited. Was hoping for more than a chain hotel breakfast because of the higher room price and previous reviews.
