“Worst Excuse for a hotel”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

Filthy hotel, Toilet and bathroom was dirty and stank of urine. Korean owners obviously do their own plumbing and electrical work. Bed was cheap and thin mattress was uncomfortable, linens were thin and worn.Passed on the "breakfast", doubtful of sanitation. booked for 3 nights and decided to leave after the second night. We were willing to tough it out, but the noise and complete lack of willingness of the staff to correct the problem caused us to leave. Even though we told the desk clerk that we were checking out early in the morning credit card was charged for the third night. If you don't mind being treated like you are a bother to the staff, go ahead. But if you prefer to be treated as a guest stay in Idaho Springs or at a different hotel. We travel a lot and for the same price we could have had a decent hotel. No maid service on weekend unless you specifically ask. No AC in rooms.

We had a great time here. The location is convenient to town, the highway, and two good restaurants next door. The rooms were clean, recently redone, and exuded that old-time mountain motel charm. The pool's tiny, but my kids had it to themselves, so size wasn't an issue. The front desk was friendly and helpful, and gave helpful tips on what to do in the area.

My wife and I have stayed at the Gerogtown Mountain Inn several times now and we have always found the experience very enjoyable. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The lobby area has a good basic continental breakfast with muffins, juice, coffee and teas available, The location is perfect, right in the heart of Georgetown with easy access to I-70 and the mountins for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. We recommend the Georgetown Mountain Inn if you're ever in that area of Colorado looking for a reasonable place to stay.

Georgetown Mountain Inn is my favorite hotel for ski weekends in Colorado. Prices are reasonable, rooms are comfortable (and the heaters work fast), and the location is less than 15 minutes from Loveland Ski Area.

Maid services are provided upon request, though previous posters have stated otherwise.

And yes, the breakfast consists of muffins, coffee and juice, but I think the muffins are pretty good, even before a day of hard skiing.

Next winter I'm definitely headed back to this hotel.

After reading all the reviews, I was prepared for an old hotel, but was still pretty amazed by how run down this place is. Since I was just going for a ski week-end with old friends, we didn't really care, and the price was right at $59.00 through the Ski Loveland website.

It is actually a motel and has a very early 70's vibe. The furniture and TV is all very old and mismatched, the plywood floors are covered in ratty old carpet, and yes, the towels are frayed and the sheets are thread bare and stained. The most interesting point is there is NO maid service, so I wonder if the sheets are ever cleaned, or just reused? We still managed to have a good time, but beware of the "breakfast" it is nothing more than store bought muffins served in a tiny room, nothing else, the pool area is "nice" but very, very funky--it looks homemade, like an old hippy built it one weekend with stuff lying around the property. There are lots of rocks and pebbles and stuff in the pool. The hot tub water was really cloudy, so I didn't get in. The craziest thing, is they have rustic, pine wood headboards that are truly dangerous!!! You WILL hit your head repeatedly on these headboards--you can't avoid it. I can't believe they haven't been sued yet--it would be so easy to replace the headboards!!! And yes, the walls are PAPER thin. You can hear every word, every footstep, every shower of every other guest. As long as you know all this going in, and want a very weird, retro experience, then go ahead. I don't think the room is worth more than $30.00 a night, if that. For breakfast, go to the Happy Cooker in historic downtown. Great breakfast, wonderful service.

GTMI, Guest Relations Manager at Georgetown Mountain Inn, responded to this review, 6 May 2011
I was working the desk the second evening these guests stayed here.
They checked in at 2AM their first night.

At no time did they make it known they were not happy. Had we known,
we would have done all we could have done to make them happy.

To save natural resources, maid service is done as requested for
extended stays. There are signs at the front desk and in each room
stating this. Typically guests staying more than one night ask for
fresh towels, trash pick up, soap, toilet paper and vacuuming as needed.
As most guests to not change sheets nightly at home, most guests do
not request or expect fresh sheets each night. But if full maid service
is requested, said request would be honored without hesitation. Thourough
cleaning is, of course, done between each unique visitor. This has been the
policy for at least a decade.

I cleaned the hot tub and changed the hot tub water the day before these guests
stayed.

The headboards in the Log Rooms are hand crafted Aspen logs and as
pictured on our website. Of course, each headboard is slightly unique as they
not machined logs. The majority of guests view this as favorable.

The building that houses the swimming pool is as pictured on the website and the pool
water is monitored and cleaned daily. The surface around the pool has embedded
gravel for safety and sometimes some of the gravel does get into the bottom of the pool.

Thank you for reading and hopefully you will give us a chance for a reasonable priced,
rustic experience.

My wife and kids do a lot of weekend "staycations" in Colorado and we stay here a couple of times a year to ski at Loveland, or hike in the Summers. We find the rooms to be clean and fairly quiet and the staff is very nice. They have an indoor pool and hot tub that the kids really like to use.

Overall a good value for family trips to the mountains.
