“Wonderful hotel and hospitality!”
Reviewed 22 June 2010

Recently my BH and I went to the Grand Lake area and on the spur of the moment decided to spend the night since we were having such a great time. We didn't know if on short notice we would be able to find lodging, but the local Chamber of Commerce recommended the Western Riviera Motel. We called and spoke with Ann and she hooked us up with a lovely room with a king sized bed.

The views are amazing, and the room is clean and the motel is located close to everything in downtown Grand Lake. We were able to walk to Pancho and Lefty's Mexican Restaurant for a late lunch (good live music and and nice bar staff).

This is in the perfect location if you want great lake views and close to the downtown area.

I highly recommned the Wester Riviera Motel for a laid back, casual, Colorado experience. We hope to return soon.

The idea that every room has a view of the beautiful lake is what attracted me first. Second, was the inviting chairs outside the door of each room. I could instantly see us having our morning or afternoon happy hour on the balcony.

The rooms were surprisingly spacious and the beds were comfortable - even the pull out. We had three adults and two teenage boys and never once felt like we were on top of each other. There was a fridge and microwave in the room which was convenient for leftovers and snacks.

The motel is located just off of mainstreet and on a walking path to the beach and docks. You are kept in the loop of things but not in the center of town with added pedestrian noise.

The staff was fabulous! Everyone we talked to from when we made our reservations to when we checked out was ready, willing, and able to help. They were truly there for us - offering honest recommendations on restaurants, activities, and town history/stories.

I'm a few months late in writing this but only because I found my note and am planning my trip for this fall. The town itself is beautiful and a perfect place to get away to whether you are from out of state or Denver.

If I had three hands, they would get three thumbs up. I guess I will have to settle for two thumbs and a smile. :)

We're spending a glorious month in beautiful Grand Lake. We stayed in a Lake side Condo at the Western Riviera with a spectacular view of the Lake for 3 days till Christmas Eve then moved to one of their other locations to a cute, cozy & very wheelchair accessible cabin for my husband. We love that both places were just few steps aways from the main street Grand Ave. and have nice restaurants, cute coffee shops, a library, liquor store, friendly pubs, and lots of little shops. We love it here and are seriously considering staying another month or two till the spring. We know that we are definitely coming back next year for winter. Thank you Anna and Lisa at the Western Riviera office for being so friendly and polite.

We have made Grand Lake and staying at the Western Riviera cabins part of our family tradition every labor day. We all gather in the same location, bar-b-que, shop, play on the lake and take the bingo challenge. Young and old alike enjoy all that Grand Lake has to offer and the courtyard cabins are a perfect place for multiple families to gather together with the benefit of each group having their own room complete with a Kitchen area while also having the courtyard to gather for meals or just relaxing in the sun.

we love it here and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!

We have had the pleasure of staying at all the Western Riveria's locations including the courtyard cabins, condo, lakeside motel & cabins, and have used the event center for a wedding reception. What fabulous service, hospitality and breathtaking views at all locations. We keep going back year after year! A great family time!

We enjoyed our stay in the Wester Riviera Hotel. We stayed in the apartment room with the full kitchen and entertained 4 - 12 year old girls for a Birthday Celebration. Our room was clean and completely accomodated our cooking, sleeping and recreational needs. The girls entertained themselves with putt-putt, paddle boating, art show across the street, shopping, go carts, movies, hiking, bowling, swimming and board games supplied by the hotel. It was the most memorable birthday party and the two moms had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the wonderful restaurants within walking distance. We would receommend this hotel to any family looking for fun for adults and children.

My husband and I stayed in a medium cabin "Fox Den" with our 17 month old. It had all we needed for our 4 night stay-stove, fridge and microwave. We loved the walk in shower (we carried a small baby tub to bathe our daughter). It was nice opening the windows to let in the cool mountain air, although there was a bar nearby whose music could be well heard at night...but it really didn't bother us too much. Our only complaint was the internet service. They seemed to have problems with the server the entire time we were there, so my husband wasn't able to do some work (good for me, bad for him). We will definitely consider another stay here when we are able to get back to Grand Lake.
