We were unable to get to Estes Park on the night of 12th September because of the floods. Our last possible point of entry via the Trail Ridge Road was not attempted following advice from the park rangers so we were stranded in Grand Lake and needed a hotel fast.
We stumbled on this hotel after the chamber of commerce gave us a list of possibles. What a happy find. The room opened directly onto a patio with chairs and tables and had excellent views of the lake which we were able to appreciate as the Continental Divide kept most of the rain away.
We were greeted warmly at reception and given a good room rate (no sign of profiteering from the Estes Park escapees).
The room was quite good, if a little dated, and was comfortable and clean.
I can imagine this hotel would be a delight in warmer, sunnier conditions but seemed like an oasis to us after the day we had had! Thanks again for rescuing us!

Highly recommend the motel. Beautiful lake view from umbrella tables on the deck. Walk to any place in town without moving your car. We were supposed to go to Estes Park, but the evacuation caused us to change our plans. Ann at Western Riviera was so helpful, as was all of the staff. Grand Lake is a wonderful town with lots of activities. Would love to return some day!

Great Location! On the Lake with good views from room (our view included the roof of office canopy). Great coffee and pastries at the Bakery next door; walking distance to restaurants and downtown activities. The room?? very small bathroom; decor very dated; King size bed very soft and spongy; carpet old and wrinkled... but all in all we had a great time in Grand Lake.

Thank you for your comments. We strive to make sure each guest has a good experience. We are very fortunate to have wonderful views from our lakeside properties. We replaced the flooring in 1/2 of the motel rooms this past spring and are planning to update the 8 remaining rooms in Spring 2014. We're glad you enjoyed Grand Lake.

Western Riviera has had many owner changes since I first stayed there in the late 1970's, and
it has always been a pleasant place to stay. It is the only hotel in Grand Lake fronting on the
lake itself. The staff currently is very nice and helpful. Hot coffee is always available in the
office area. The minor negatives are no free breakfasts, and you have to ask to have your
room made up each day, or it won't be. Prices are reasonable considering the nature of
Grand Lake as a resort town. We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: All rooms have about the same view. 2 stories, no elevator. Cabins are available across the stree...

We had our wedding at Point Park in Grand Lake and the reception at the Western Riviera Event Center. We also stayed in the Tree House on our wedding night. Of all the things you may have to worry about during a destination wedding weekend, the Western RIv is not one of them. The entire event went without a hitch and my new wife and I are extremely happy with the way they handled our event, our guests, and the entire weekend. We recommend this venue for any event--weddings, family reunions, etc. The views are spectacular and the staff is very accomodating.

lake front motel has the most pictureque vistas out of any on grand lake . the western riviera is just to one side of the boat docks where the locals will rent a kayak or canoe , for the more risky a motor boat can be obtained for a few dollars more . being in the heart of downtown a short stroll through the village streets will uncover a delight of shops , resturants and ice cream? candy shops for an after dinner treat . i enjoy the rapids resturant for a fine meal or the sage brush for a more relaxed yet delicious trout or blackened salmon ...........

The innkeepers were delightful, very helpful and accommodating. We rented the cabin for three nights. Grand lake was beautiful and the town was friendly and welcoming. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and coffee pot. A fare price for the cabin. Not the ritz but perfect for days on the lake and night to relax and regroup. Would go again in a heartbeat... :)
