We booked several rooms with Spirit Lake Lodge two weeks apart. Upon check out of our second stay with this establishment the cost of the rooms increased substantially. We question the owner and she stated she would take care of it. There was not a credit issued as promised. In addition we left several telephone calls over two weeks and no return calls. Beware of using your credit card or staying at this establishement. The owner is very rude and not truthful.

Room Tip: Do not use credit card. Pay cash and get everything in writing including the room rate.

My family just moved to Colorado and we were looking for a week-end trip. We found Spirit Lake Lodge on the internet and booked our room. We could not have been more pleased. 1) We have dogs and for a very small fee you can take your dogs. They have limited number of rooms for pets so for busy week-ends book early. The rooms were very clean and up to date. Lovely fireplace in each room. Microwave and small fridge. Owners are on site and take excellent care of everything. Hotel is right in town so you can walk everywhere.

We rented snowmobiles from them and equipment is very current, in great condition and the manager of the fleet, Cody, is just great. Honestly, if it weren't for the snow I would have thought I was in Jamaica " Don't Worry...Be Happy"... Everything seems to just work here. Thanks for a fantastic week-end. We'll be back!!!!!!

Room Tip: For just a little more you can get the cabin rooms, which has a seperate room with a queen bed and...

I recently went up to Grand Lake to go snowmobiling...had my own snowmobiles but stayed at this place because it was affordable. Went up on a ride the first day and wrecked my "personal" sled. Called the lodge to ask what to do and they were able to send one of their employees to come help me! They even let me work on my sled in their garage when we got back to the lodge. Would recommend this place to anyone coming through town and looking for a quality affordable place to stay.

After three years came back to this lovely town, and stayed at same place again. This was most affordable stay at Grand Lake with a good service and very clean room! Close to Rocky Mountain park, shops and reastaurants, will stay here again if ever go back to this area!

Room Tip: If this place has a breakfast we would enjoy it even more!

This is a nice motel that has had some remodeling. It’s very clean and tidy but the beds in the room are very uncomfortable, unless you like very hard beds. The motel is an easy walk to the downtown shops and the lake shore. There's free coffee in the office every morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a new "soft" bed, if there is such a room.

This lodge is located right within the town of Grand Lake which makes it very convenient for walking to stores for shopping and to local restaurants. We stayed in a room with a King size bed for $140.00 per night. The room was simple but very clean and smelled clean. Nothing seemed worn except maybe the carpet. There was a portable air conditioner in the room which is not needed in the mountains because it doesn't get that hot. It was probably there so she could charge a little more for the room. The bed was hard as a rock. The customer service is poor. The woman at the front desk was direct and abrupt laying down the rules to the hotel i.e. no smoking (we don't smoke and prefer nonsmoking rooms), lobby not open until 8AM-10PM, leave keys in the drop box outside the entrance to the hotel, must be out of the room by 10 AM. She did not greet us by welcoming us to her lodge and did not say thank-you for visiting us and come back again. Perhaps she just doesn't care since Grand lake is such a popular place. I work in a hospital as an RN and am constantly drilled on providing good customer service and was very dissapointed in how we were treated by this woman. She definitely needs to learn how to be nicer and more caring. I feel this would improve not only her business but also her own personality. We will not stay there again but will look for another place in Grand Lake to stay the next time we come to visit.

Nice little place to stay! Very clean, inexpensive. I a great town. Great place to stay after you've completed the Trail ridge road drive! Plenty of nice places to eat close by and nice old fashion town.
