The Alpine Trail Ridge Inn is located perfectly - close to the National Park. Due to flooding in the area the season before, we took a more alternative route to the park, but it was still very nice and close.
This is a good example of a typlcal older America family motel. The upkeep is nice, but it does still have some character. Nothing fancy about it, but I thought it was a good value for a night's stay. They have an outdoor pool which appeared very nice, but we did not utilize it. I especially liked the fact that we could open sliding doors iin our room to get some fresh air and look out on the mountains. The grounds themselves are not particularly scenic, but they are clean and maintained. Window air conditioning unit which we only used for a short time to freshen up the room, as it was a pretty cool day. The room was comfortable with nice rocker/recliner (which hubby loved) and another comfortable easy chair. It also had a desk.
All in all, I would stay here again for the same purpose. You won't exactly feel pampered, but you will feel like someone cares about your stay. Very nice front desk ladies :) Photos included...
