“Great location, friendly staff, "tired" room”
Reviewed 22 June 2010

We spent 3 nights here in June, rather spur-of-the-moment (less than a week prior to arrival). When we initially called for a room they were already booked, but at our request they cheerfully took our name for any cancellations and did indeed call us when a cancellation occurred. Each time on the phone the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, as well as during our entire stay there. The hotel itself is in a great location approx. in the middle of Frisco's Main Street, and is lovely from the outside, with a small, but nice courtyard right in front. It is a short walk to beautiful Dillon Reservoir, where there are hiking/biking trails, shuttle boat service to cross the lake to Dillon, etc., and bike rentals are as close as the next block from the hotel. One block the other direction from the hotel is a great breakfast restaurant, The Butterhorn. The hotel room itself was adequate, but definitely needs some updating. The good aspects: Very comfortable beds, pillows (extra pillows there, too!), linens, a good shower head that provides more than just a trickle of water, great lighting in the bathroom. There is no A/C, however, they do provide a tower fan in the room which was extremely efficient and the room was very comfortable at all times during our stay with the windows open, however, there are no screens in the windows. The hotel and area was very quiet during our stay. The "needs improvement" aspects: though the room in general was adequately clean, it felt less than clean for the following reasons: the rug was old, worn, stained. The "best" of two chairs in the room had legs that, when we arrived, we had to straighten, as they were tilted as if they were broken/loose where they connected to the chair. The blinds were old and damaged, though functional. The very basic, rustic, worn furniture was missing knobs, the triple switchplate in the bathroom by the sink had extensive, large chipped areas, which made the sink area seem dirty, though the vanity area/bathroom itself was clean. The hotel is dog friendly, which is great for those of us who are dog lovers, but may not be for those who prefer dog-free lodging. Overall, this could be a terrific hotel if only they would update the furniture, rugs, window blinds (and add screens). Although we enjoyed our stay here in general, we would most likely not stay again unless we determined that the rooms had been updated, though would still recommend it with this qualifier, i.e. updating rooms.

We ended a disastrous stay in Estes Park with a last night in Frisco. We hadn't been here in a few years and loved every aspect of this lovely quaint mountain hotel, right on the main street in Frisco, Colorado. We tried a different room, and had a jacuzzi, and a little private garden right outside the room. We were right off the lobby which made getting coffee in the morning very easy (quiet, charming and friendly lobby). Wonderful to walk to an amazing gourmet restaurant, Vinny's, for dinner, shopping just down the street, including The Next Page bookstore and a wonderful coffee shop, and then breakfast at our beloved Butterhorn a block away the next morning. This will be our destination next year for our Colorado trip. We discovered hiking trails and plenty of the history we love right outside out door.

Stayed here one night on our way through the area. Best hotel bed I have ever slept on. The room was comfortable, the front desk friendly and helpful. If in the area again, I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Hotel Frisco for two nights. I prefer staying in hotels that have a bit of character compared to the chain hotels. Hotel Frisco is in the middle of Main St and in walking distance of the bars, and restaurants. From Frisco you can ski Copper, A-Basin, or Loveland. We skied A-Basin one day and the next Copper. Frisco has a bus that runs daily to Copper Mountain.
The rooms where clean and nice. Our King size bed was right by the hot tub. It felt like our own private hot tub. No one else was in there. They close off the hot tub at 9pm to let every room by the hot tub get some sleep. The hotel was quiet until the morning when we could hear the people upstairs getting ready for the day. We like to sleep in.

The staff was very nice and helpful. They have free coffee, and tea in main room. There is also free WiFi and a computer to use upstairs. The place is also dog friendly. The staff had some great recommendations on places to eat. The Indian restaurant in town was very good! Also the bakery down the road. Yummy breakfast!

I would stay there again.

We had to cancel our trip within the week prior to travel due to a family emergency and the manager, Sarah, was incredible. She is one of the nicest sales people I have ever spoken with and I plan to rebook the trip with them as soon as I can. They clearly went above the standards of customer service each time I called from the first contact to help us coordinate the trip arrangements we needed. I highly recommend checking them out for any trip to Summit County. Thanks Sarah.

We stayed here for three nights in January and couldn't have wanted anything more. They didn't have space for us on the first night (we were walk ins at 7pm) but they suggested a really good value hotel round the block. Our room was immaculate, warm, quiet and went straight out onto the hot tub which was great after a hard day on the slopes. The bed was super comfy. The staff are friendly and efficient. No tea or coffee in rooms but they have hot drinks in the lobby which you can help yourselves to (everyone pops out of their rooms to grab a breakfast coffee). And wifi in your room plus nice Aveda products too. Would definitely come back.
