The Alps is very clean. Not much to look at from the outside but it's Leadville. You can walk to town. The breezeway is glass enclosed which meant it trapped the afternoon/evening sun - this translated to an uncomfortably hot room to sleep in since there is no A/C and no windows on the opposite side of the room to let air pass through. I imagine in the cooler seasons, this could be a plus but it was way too hot to sleep. Not sure why they didn't put screens in the breezeway?!? I would not stay again as I prefer the Columbine Inn.
