Great Western Sumac Lodge
Reviewed 2 April 2013

We took a chance on this hotel since it's so reasonably priced, but were very pleased with how spacious and clean it was. The receptionist was highly efficient and helped us obtain a coffee maker which wasn't in the room. The bed was firm but very comfortable. New tile in the shower and a new toilet. Everything about it is old style--retro even--but in great shape. Right next door to City Market on Highway 24, but the road noise was very minimal. We would definitely stay here again.

It's the same place I always stay when I take my annual hunting trip to Buena Vista. The service was a lot better this year, asked for extra pillows and not only did we get the pillows we received extra towels and ash trays. It's a nice place to stay in the middle of town and the prices are reasonable. The owner is a great lady and will go out of her way to accommodate you. It's also neat to wake up to deer feed in the grass of the business...

Found this at the last minute when all else was booked- gave us a senior discount and reasonable pet fees! Some children can do more damage than dogs! Close to grocery store, and other conviences. Room is clean. one fault is no coffee maker in room. Would stay here again!

After grossly overpaying at the "quaint" i.e. old and outdated motel up the street, I was delighted to find this modern motel for less than half the price and a very reasonable fee for my pets.

Counter person was helpful, friendly and courteous.

Room was basic without a fridge or microwave, but clean and large with a vaulted ceiling. {

Plenty of parking with room for large vehicles.

And no threatening notices posted about all the extra charges I might incur if I leave a dirty dish or if my dog leaves a hair on the bed. (unlike the tiny 12 unit motel up the street)

Buena Vista was a great place to stop on a long road-trip up from New Mexico to Denver by the scenic route and this hotel was exactly what we expected . The room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was ample but very boring - just a little more fresh fruit or some homemade muffins ( rather than the very tasteless mass produced kind) together with good coffee would have made a huge difference. The person on the desk (owner?) was very helpful in recommending the right places to hike for a half a day and to eat dinner.

Room Tip: If you like good views, ask for a room on the front. If you wish to be very quiet, go for the back.

Very nice help at the desk. Nothing fancy and no extras but very clean and quiet. Quincey's was a great place to eat.
On the morning of check-out we even got to watch a deer in the hotel flowers chowing down!
The decor is VERY dated and again it's not fancy but I'd stay here again. Also the office is a mess but the rooms are super clean and don't smell like the office. Don't know what was up with the office!

I have always had good experiences staying here. If anything is not right, they make it right. It is a family owned business and the room is always clean and comfy. The price is right and located close to eating establishments, parks/trails, river, etc.

Stayed: October 2010, travelled on business
