Given the lodging choices in Trinidad, I think this is a good choice for the price, despite my "average" rating. My comments apply specifically for cabin #7 (one of the two "economy" cabins); the other cabins may be (and almost certainly are) different.
Pluses: Heater worked well, management very friendly and helpful, roomy cabin with mini-fridge, small microwave, a few plates, bowls, eating utensils, cups, etc., and a bar sink. Small sofa, queen sized comfortable bed, 35”? HDTV with cable including HBO. Well located, less than 10 minutes from Trinidad, about 25 from Arcada, and 35 from Eureka.
Negs: Noisy heater, room odor (combination of what seemed to be mustiness, cigarette smoke, and pet odor, though smoking and pets are now prohibited), slanted flooring in places, right off of the road (though not too much traffic at night), wifi didn’t work a few times, but mostly ok, small 3x3 stall shower with ants parading between a hole in the wall near the ceiling and the shower arm hole; dead bolt doesn’t lock from the outside (with the provided key).
Overall: Compared to the other options we investigated, a very good deal for the money.
