We stayed in this hotel for one night in between visiting the Colorado National Monument which it overlooks and Telluride. The location was very convenient just off I-70 and you can see the mesas of the national park in the distance
The Good: The room was very well appointed with granite countertops and a full kitchen with hard wood floors. The beds were very comfortable and the hotel was surprisingly quiet considering how many rednecks and dogs were staying here. They have three washing machines and four dryers which were free. Either bring your own liquid detergent or you can buy 3 packs for $4 at the little store inside the hotel
The Bad: No ice machines - seriously? The nice girl at the front desk told me to put down the bar on the ice machine in the refrigerator in my room. She did give me two small cups of ice for drinks while we were waiting for the ice maker to work. Toiletries consisted of two bars of soap and one bottle of Pantene conditioning shampoo. No pool either - in Grand Junction which was 98 degrees the day we were there. Wow, just wow!
The Ugly: Rednecks and transient types everywhere. One lady had been there for six weeks! One drunk redneck asked the front desk girl for barbecue tools so they must have a grill. Another redneck stopped my washing machine cycle after dropping the f bomb when he discovered his laundry had been removed from the washer when he didn't come back to retrieve it. Housekeeping is only once a week. Oh yeah, did I mention opening the door to do laundry at 10:00 at night only to be stared down by both large and small black dogs? Creepy! Some woman also started to bring her dog into the business center earlier in the evening. Honestly!
Bottom line is the hotel would be great without the patrons they seem to attract. Ice machines and pools are much needed though.
