This is a nice clean place in a small little town. We stayed after driving the Rocky Mountain National Park. Room was clean and the staff was more then friendly. Nice view of the lake. Offered a nice breakfast in the morning.

I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us; Things do get quiet in town after 10 P:M but I guess that is price of a small town. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the lodge feel of the property. We hope that you can stay with us again in the future. More

We stayed here mid October. We found a great deal on Groupon! We arrived a little early for check-in and they offered to change our room, so that we could settle in right away.

Hotel looks greats. Lobby and bar are really fun to sit around and have a beer. there is a free popcorn and games you can use in the lobby so that's great.

Thank you for your review, we tend to get more positive comments about our mattress. We are currently discussing a possible change in our mattress to a sleep number type for the occasional traveler who prefers a more firm mattress. More

Pictures make me think this is a small lodge type setting, however, it's setup like any other hotel out there. That being said, the rooms were nice and big,the old spice for men package was a nice touch in the bathroom. Great happy hour prices.

We had the king bed, mountain view fireplace room for two nights. Comfy bed, our area was very quiet and could not hear the lounge. I liked how the locals came by the lounge and played poker and watched the game. Lounge was limited food, would be nice to expand that. Games on all the tables. Breakfast was very good... More

This is a very nice lodge type motel located on the outskirts of Grand Lake, near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. There are two buildings, a smaller “cabin” building for larger groups, and the main hotel building which has three stories, including the basement area, with two wings on either side of the entrance containing the rooms.

We booked this hotel, and planned our itinerary around the booking. We were disappointed in the room that we received, and there seemed to be some confusion at check in.
