I saw very good deal on a room and decided instead of flying somewhere that particular 4day weekend, I'd go hit up memory lane in good ol' Summit County with my beau.
The hotel has been renovated and looks very clean and modern upon entering the lobby. The rooms however, are a very different story. They have to be the smallest hotel rooms I have ever seen in my life, and I'm a Flight Attendant I stay in a lot of hotels. The decor is very blah and the bathrooms are as expected tiny to fit the tiny room.
I believe the website advertises great views from your room of either Lake Dillon or a Mountain View and to make sure and specify which you'd prefer. I asked for a mountain view and to my dismay upon entering the room saw that my only view was a barren parking lot and a dried up field. I did ask to be switched rooms and a nice gentleman at the desk did so without any fuss. I was moved to the 5th floor, better view but even smaller room, lol.
We were given free drink coupons and weren't able to use them because the restaurant wasn't even open and there no hours posted anywhere. Oh well didn't look like we missed much.
Would I stay here again...? Probably not. I'm a little spoiled though when it comes to Summit County since I used to live there and have also vacationed up there in some of the most impeccable condos. But if you're on a budget then this is certainly not a bad bang for your buck!
