Although we found the price to be a bit steep for winter rates in Lake City ($90 which includes pet fee), the room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The room even had vaulted ceilings. It was the only hotel in Lake City that was open and pet friendly - not much is open during the winter since it's primarily a summer destination. The room we were in had a flat screen TV with HDMI/USB port, 2 queen beds, stove, hot pot, sink, microwave, full bath. No fridge however. If you need a hairdryer ask to borrow it at the desk. The room was slow to heat up but Bruno, owner/chef, graciously provided us with a space heater and the room quickly heated up. The hotel also has a restaurant where Bruno is the chef and while we did not eat there, we heard from the locals that the food is phenomenal but very $$. The hotel is located up on a hill just a 1-minute drive from the main strip (off of Rte 149). We ate at the Packer Saloon (food was very good), Mocha Moose Coffee shop for bkft which happened to be the only shop open at 8am! We found the small town of Lake City to be very quaint, aesthetic, and friendly. We went to Lake City to ice climb their man-made ice climbing wall off of Bluff St. Other than one other party, we were the only ones climbing! We will definitely be back during the summer to camp and kayak in Lake San Cristobal. We will also be back next winter and stay at Alpine Moose Lodge. The best way to come into Lake City is via Hwy 50 - we came in from South Fork/Creed and rte 149 was windy and scary in certain areas.
