“Small Rooms Friendly Staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

I would have given a better rating, but I thought the price was way too high for such a tiny little room. We had to keep our bathroom items on the floor since there was no place else to put them. I couldn't even find a place to spread my arms enough to do yoga. The television was in front of the window, beside the bed, making it impossible to see while lying down. The woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. It's a short walk to downtown and they do have bicycles available as well, which is a nice touch in such a bike-friendly town.

First time staying here. The staff was as nice as they come. The rooms are average size, decorated nicely, and the new bedding is so comfortable. We looked forward to turning in every night! Great breakfast in the morning, fresh baked cookies in the afternoon. The bus is steps away to take you to the mountain... park your car. Groceries and Elk avenue are seconds away. What else do you need?

Room Tip: Either side of this hotel is quiet come bed time. Great mountain views from both sides.

I have stayed here a few times. I love the staff, friendly atmosphere, quaintness, dog friendly rooms and location.
Not to mention the variety of breakfast items in the morning and the fresh baked cookies in the evening. Great basecamp for hiking and biking!!!

We chose the Old Town because it was one of the cheapest motel options for Crested Butte. It is your basic older motel with dark rooms. But our room was plenty large for our needs – and clean. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and they have fresh baked cookies each afternoon - yummy. The hot tub was OK but in a rather non-private area - and smelled of chlorine.

But the reason I recommend this place is its location. For one, it is across the street from the town park where a concert was held the night we were in town. Crested Butte is small and that evening with everyone scattered on the Green with blankets, chairs and food was delightful. Later, we wanted to save money so went to the grocery store immediately behind the motel for some sandwich stuff and then to a movie in the theatre next door. (All very small town touristy cute. We loved Crested Butte.) We earlier walked to both a lovely hiking trail and to the main street with all the restaurants. Neither was real close to the motel but we came to CO to hike, so we did a lot of walking. So - if you want to save money by staying less expensively, I recommend Old Town. Just don't expect an "Inn atmosphere." It is basic.

The Old Town Inn is located next to the Welcome to Crested Butte town sign. If you stay up at one of the ski resort places on the mountain - your paying 100.00 more for nothing. Since all the action is in town anyway - this is where I have enjoyed staying with every return trip.

We stayed here the second week of January and thought it was perfect. It's a quaint little place, right there as you drive into town. The free bus that heads to the ski resort picks up right outside, and the inn is just a few blocks from the town's main street, Elk Ave.
The service was awesome — really friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable.
For the price, you can't do much better than this in any ski town.
Will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Crested Butte.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
If the mountains are whispering your name, give us a call. The Old Town Inn makes a great home base for your Crested Butte adventures, wild or civilized. The inn offers all the amenities of a traditional hotel, but feels more like a bed-and-breakfast or European inn, where guests are welcomed like family. Here you can launch your day’s adventure with a hearty Continental breakfast and end it with home-made cookies and treats and a luxuriant soak in our outdoor hot tub. Though we offer one of the best lodging values in Crested Butte, we take excellent care of our guests. Our 33 rooms are spacious and spotless, most with two queen-sized beds (or ask about our king rooms or suite if you prefer). Rooms feature cable television with HBO, phones with voice mail messaging, wireless Internet access and daily housekeeping service. We also provide guest laundry facilities and fax service. We are located at the entrance to Crested Butte, right next to the Town Park, Center for the Arts, movie theater, grocery store and restaurants. We’re just a short walk from historic downtown’s shops and eateries and from cross-country skiing, hiking and biking trails. Just a few steps away, you can catch the free shuttle bus to the ski area. We’d love to be a part of your next mountain getaway. ... more   less
