Worst experience in lodging...ever
Reviewed 2 days ago

My wife and I had a reservation here as part of our honeymoon trip. When we got to our room, she discovered many small black hairs and several long blond ones all over the sheets...disgusting. We went back to the front desk and asked to move rooms. Our new room had the same problem. We called and this time a hotel employee accompanied us to a third room--the bed sheets again had hairs all over them. My wife turned to the employee and asked "would you sleep here?" and he just sheepishly smiled. It wasn't the managers fault--but clearly a major housekeeping problem. We had to cancel our reservation, and since the town was booked solid, had to drive 30 miles late at night to find clean bedding in Gunnison. Not the greatest day for our honeymoon. They did refund my reservation, but never so much as an apology afterward...terrible experience.

Sucks

When I checked in the woman in front of me was asked if she wanted food because the restaurant was going to close in 30 minutes it was 9:30 p.m. one minute later I told the clerk I wanted to get food he told me the restaurant was closed he didn't talk to anyone who you said it was closed. I'm here at a conference the breakfast Horrible no milk some half rotten fruitwhat up to get food from the restaurant breakfast the avocado toast was super dry cold toast with rotten black avocado on it tried three more times to order lunch the only guy in the restaurant was too busy on his phone and his computer to literally even talk to me he slid me an iPad I figured out how to order on it but it didn't work I want to try to go back to ask him he was bothered by being interrupted. Food at the lunches was terrible one day nothing three types of pasta which was very chewy no bread vegetables anything else no salt on any of the tables for any of the meals. No condiments no Pepper or nothing. I know it's off season here and they staff down but they should not even be open this is the worst service I've ever seenat what would otherwise be a halfway decent hotel. All the workers are completely disinterested they're here to ski and like most ski areas in Colorado they're pissed off that they have to actually go do some work so they can live here and ski and it shows in their attitude so professional conference was ever held here again I would not attend

Great, but extra fees

We had a really good stay here. The room, deluxe double queen, was spacious and had a balcony with a nice view. Comfortable beds, microwave, sink, mini fridge in the room. The outdoor hot tubs have an awesome view as well and were wonderful to relax in. My only issues were the extra fees. They charge $20 per day for parking and another $20 per day resort fee. How about just up the nightly price of the hotel instead of charging extra fees? Groupon had a deal that included parking. However, it doesn't include the resort fee. They "assume you read the fine print of the groupon" so they don't mention it to you when you check in and pay the $50 refundable deposite. There is no included breakfast, but if you stay more than one night, you can refuse room cleaning, and they will give you a $10 voucher to use at their hotel restaurant. That was a nice perk, but it was a bit pricey. One plain bagel cost $5, avocado toast $8, and they want you to order online with your phone. Personally, I prefer a printed menu, without having to wait for a website to load. There is a free shuttle to town within walking distance from the hotel that runs every 20min. Tons of cute restaurants, coffee shops, and stores in town. So this is a bit of a mixed review. Really nice rooms and amenities, most of the staff was great, but extra fees. I would stay again if we found another groupon or similar deal.

A lot of walking was required, but it was a lovely hotel.

The views were spectacular from our room; we did not eat there so I cannot comment on the food or the quality.
The rooms were large and comfortable. Housekeeping was a bit stingy with their towels so a couple of times I had to call them to bring up more towels so that we could shower. All in all it was a fun stay.

Wonderful staff, excellent amenities, beautiful scenery

Wonderful place to visit. Staff were wonderful. Outside fire place is real nice with friends. Wonderful scenery during the fall. I mountain biked the Lupine Trails and was really nice. Prior to the snow, you can drive up to Gothic. Real nice, small little town.
