“Great rooms, bad location”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

This motel, which was recently renovated by new owners, has Colorado-themed rooms that are superbly decorated with great beds and high-end finishes. Bathroom was among best we have ever had in a motel. However, the motel is on a steep driveway at the very north end of town, so way "out of the action" area and removed from downtown, restaurants, etc. Some views, but not the best the town has to offer. Construction underway was a bit disrupting, but not too bad and looked to be nearly complete.

Thank you for your review and we have placed the flat screen television higher on the wall so it can now be viewed easily from the bed. We have remodeled, updated and redecorated our 15 rooms and feel that much has been accomplished in two short summer seasons. Our guest's comments are valued and we have responded by placing recommendations on our "action" list. We hope that you will visit us again for more great hiking and perhaps try another room with an entirely different thematic decor reflecting the essence of Lake City.
