“Great location/improved beds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I have stayed her before and was not happy with the hardness of the beds. They have since gotten new mattresses and the bed was comfortable. We stayed a "suite". With a tiny bedroom and I mean tiny. However, it was big enough to fit the "queen" bed (I really don't think it was a queen). The place is cute, the couch comfortable, good TV, refrig and microwave. Great location, basically on the edge of "downtown" so you can park your car and walk everywhere. Grand Lake is a wonderful little western town and Spirit Lake Lodge fits right in. The owner is very direct but polite. Pretty much no nonsense. I would return and recommend it.

Room was nice at a reasonable price and we chose a larger room with a sitting room and separate bedroom. The shortages noted in other reviews like lack of coffee and a tiny bathroom were balanced by the location since you could walk for coffee, to shop and to dinner. Since it was July and rained it was a great location to sit and wait for the skies to clear. We wanted a comfortable clean base camp nothing posh and were very satisfied. We even saw a moose in the back one morning.

Room Tip: Suite with own porch is nice.

We didn't have reservations, but drove-in into Grand Lake after vising the Rocky Mountain National Park, loved the town and decided to stay for the night. The location of Spirit Lake Lodge seemed perfect - at the beginning of the downtown - and we loved the beautiful flowers and ambiance of this lodge. The hostess was helpful with giving us suggestions on places to eat - which we chose Rapids and had a great on-the-river dining experience. Spend a few extra dollars and get an upgrade to the room with a fireplace - we stayed in room # 25 and really enjoyed the beautiful view of the town. The room was very clean, spacious, and had a beautiful river-rock fireplace. We got a great night sleep - really comfortable beds and quiet hotel. We will be back there again.

Room Tip: Rooms with fireplaces - 25 or 24 the best

Horrible exprerience. I visited with my mom to spend the weekend of her birthday at Grand Lake. We popped into Spirit Lake and the lady at the desk said that they had a room available but only for two nights. Now we were exhausted and pretty stressed out at the time because we had driven 4 hours to get there, so we asked if she would let us stay one night and we told her our situation. She just stood there shaking her head and kept saying no no no and then said have a great day and walked away leaving us standing there. Very rude and bad experience! Never going back

Very small accomodations. Bed okay, but the no comfortable place to sit, relax or watch TV. Owner comes and goes, no services to speak of. Was clean. Good location. Watched the memorial day parade from our balcony.

My wife and I just returned home from spending 5 nights at this ideally located, wonderfully run, location in Grand Lake. It is well crafted and maintained. The gazebo out back provided us countless opportunities to unwind and enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains (and never forget the chipmunks wandering around). The mornings arrived like a whisper, People actually seemed to understand how magical this place is and we rarely heard a raised voice, and then only in joy. Hard to believe, but true. Even the cars going by slowed to a crawl and waved in passing. Great place to find your self.

Room Tip: Room 6 was perfect for the two of us. It's on the back side. I suspect any of the rooms here w...

This is a reasonably-priced hotel on one side of the historic downtown. The room we got had a nice sitting area with a fireplace, flatscreen TV and refrigerator. Adjacent to the sitting was a small bedroom. Clean place, but generally I'm not a big fan of traveling with our two toy poodles, but my wife loves them and sometimes I must give in. Cost was $10 per dog.

Room Tip: This motel is dog friendly and pretty nice.
