“It's a Motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2007

The man at the front desk was pleasant. You will need to ask him about internet access when you check in. He fixed the faucet that was running constantly in our room while we were at dinner. As for the accomodations, they were fine. Your standard motel accomodations. The beds were a bit uncomfortable, and there were several things wrong with the room, (a broken screen in our window, a sink that wouldn't plug, etc.) All in all,, it's a place to hang your hat for one night.

This is a very nice clean little place to stay that is family owned and quite unique. It has AC if you should need it and each unit has its on little bench outside your door.. There is a very pretty lit up gazebo at night and it is just a nice calm quiet little place that is very clean. And the staff are very nice and catering.

I switched to this Inn after being disapointed with my orginal booking. Which lacked proper cleaning and maintance.

I found the Columbine Inn to be very clean, well maintained and the staff friendly and helpful. There is no pool but if you are looking for a clean, friendly, inexpensive place to rest your head I would recommend it. They offer free coffee,tea, juice, sweetrolls and muffins to start your day.

Our room had a private deck with mountain view and an extra large shower.

I observed the staff helping hikers chose trails and others with local events.

Location is close to local shopping and events.
