“No frills lodging”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

My husband and I booked a four-night stay here because most everything else was booked for the weekend. It's on a major road south of town (there's a bike path across the street), but it is a short distance to everything. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. Compared to other lodging we researched, this one is very affordable. Also, most of the rooms are on ground level, which made it easier to get our mountain bikes in and out of the room. The owners are nice. Being on a main road, there is traffic noise. The rooms have TV's and a phone, but no hair dryer or coffee maker. We would stay here again.

This hotel was ranked next to last on Tripadvisor, but the reviews sounded like it was great. I booked for 4 nights for my husband and 2 granddaughters. First of all, the the male owner was NOT friendly, the continental breakfast was bagels, could not get them to give us 4 sets of towels the whole time we were there, and the air conditioner was in another room, so we had quite a time getting the room cooled down our first night. On the plus side, the room was spacious and had decent furniture, with a large HD tv. AND, one of the best showers ever! No pool for the grandkids.

Nice and quiet. Loved being able to drink coffee outside in front of the room in the morning. Very clean. The owners were very nice. The only complaint was it was hard to see past the front bushes when you were leaving the parking lot

Nice gentleman (manager?) checked me in. Made sure I understood how to operate shower on/off (it was different). Room clean and well equipped. Good horizontal spaces for laying out my stuff. Bathroom and shower fine. Was quiet and I slept well. A very reasonable place in Glenwood Springs, which presumably can be pricey.

Note, driveway/parking area is somewhat steep uphill and had been recently oiled/sealed. Not a problem for most cars, but was a problem for navigating and parking with motorcycle.
I walked to The Rivers for dinner. Otherwise it was a drive somewhere.

This was our second time staying here, and the place is great for a good nights rest without breaking the bank. Clean, comfortable rooms, nice host, everything worked fine.

There is a Walmart within walking distance if you need supplies, and decent Mexican and Chinese restaurants next door.

If you're just looking for a relaxing place to spend the evening and don't need a lot of Aspen (or Glenwood for that matter!) nightlife, this is your place.

Stayed one night , nice place with a great view ! At first I was disappointed because the shower in the room did not work ,it did say in the description , bath or shower in room though , bath worked fine though and it felt nice to soak after a long day riding my motorcycle and hiking to see sights . As I said , with some work this could be a great place , still the cheapest rate in town , 60 a night but as it is it should probably be 40 to 50 a night . Overall , I loved it ! Nice folks running the place too and I imagine the cost of renovation can be overwhelming so no big deal there but the showers really need to work . Some people don't like baths and handicapped people may not even be able to .

Room Tip: Request a room with a shower if you don't like a bath .

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews and we were not disappointed. The rooms were very nice and clean. They were also very big. The staff people were both nice and gave helpful recommendations on where to visit in Glenwood Springs. The only problem we had was that the TV wasn't working at first, but the office guy (I think his name was Wes) came and fixed it no problem.
