“a wonderful, quiet, friendly and very clean Motel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

This Motel I really love and should I return to this area I will check-in at this Motel again.
The property is very neat and clean. The owners are so friendly and nice! The rooms are very comfortable, well-equipped, some older furniture mix with new items, and it is quiet, and - most important - CLEAN, VERY CLEAN!!! You also have free wifi which works very well.
This is how Motels should be!
And also, it's only a walking distance to the beautiful old historic downtown of the city.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are very good. As the location is off the Highway, it's very quiet. Some room...

We have stayed at the Lakeside Motel twice over the last two years and could not have been happier with the accommodations- very clean, very quiet, great location- an overall great value. Whether you want to walk down Main Street, sit by the lake or stream, or go for a ride up Cottonwood Pass, the location is perfect. The owners do a very nice job of maintaining an good environment. We will definitely continue to stay the Lakeside Motel when we return to Buena Vista.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the court yard and lake are very nice.

We enjoyed our stay at this motel very much. Steve and Patty were the best of hosts! Our room was clean and had plenty of room and the bed was very comfortable as well. We highly recommend this motel. It was centrally located to all we wanted to do and see in the Buena Vista area.

I have stayed in several of the rooms at this motel. It is used by my corporate booking. It is small, sweet, clean. No hair dryer in most rooms and no shampoo, etc, only soap. One of the larger rooms did have a hair dryer, but I was told that was one of the more expensive ones. Each room has a different 'kitchenette' set up. some have a frig and microwave. Some have a coffee pot. But not all. It is kind of mixed. I did enjoy the ability to heat up food in my room and that made up for the very hard uncomfortable bed. The owners are very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for the kitchen amenities you want or need.

This is a small, quiet, no smoking-no pets motel off the main road. Our room was very small with no hair dryer, shampoo or conditioner. The Q bed was uncomfortable - hard and unpadded. I thought it was a little pricey for the room size and amenities. The room was immaculate, however, and this is a real plus. Easy parking in front of rooms.

This was our second year staying at the Lakeside in lovely Buena Vista, central Colorado. The owners are nice. The rooms are spacious, extremely clean, comfortable, with nice beds, a fridge and microwave (almost makes a kitchenette). It's hard to be more comfortable, no matter the price - and the Lakeside is a price bargain.

You're a short walk away from cafes, farmers' market, all the amenities. You're a short drive from the spectacular Collegiate Mountains (Continental Divide), Buena Vista's Cottonwood Hot Springs (don't miss that - wonderful hot springs in a valley with mountains in almost all directions). There's river rafting and kayaking right there, and a host of lovely places both in Buena Vista and nearby (Aspen's only an hour's drive when Independence Pass is open). Great, friendly motel in a great, friendly town. You can't beat it!

This is an old style motel that is very clean and comfortable and affordable. Nice, well kept lawn gives a down home feel. Great place to sit and read. Good area fro walking or biking. Owners wanted to be certain we did not smoke or have pets, and, upon receiving the proper answers, could not have been nicer. We had a great experience, and definitely would choose it again.
