Reviewed 22 April 2014

We chose this hotel for our last two nights of our holiday. We wanted something in a beautiful setting, some peace and quiet and down time before our flight. This we certainly got. The hotel is surrounded by gorgeous scenery and Redstone is a delightful village. The historic hotel is generally lovely with an old creaky charm about it. There is a nice bar and restaurant which both serve very good food, and a pleasant lounge area by a large open fire. However, some things were not quite right. We had a veranda room. The room was large and clean but with strange furnishings. There was a small narrow hall like table, but no desk or chair. There was just one chair for relaxing. So when the children went to bed it wasn't very comfortable. Our room opened onto two verandas shared with other rooms, which were both offered pleasant views. But the one on the river side had a sink dumped on the floor just to the left of our room - not what you expect to see when you walk outside! There were also several pieces of rubbish which had been left around the table and chairs on the veranda, so we wondered how much attention this area received. The ceiling fan in our room was a little wobbly so we had our window open at nighttime. However, the curtains were not very well fitting and left huge gaps for anyone walking past to see in, especially with the window open as it opened inwards. There were no other blinds or net curtain and this was the only window. The room had no tea or coffee making facilities or fridge which would've been nice. The beds however are superb - very comfortable. Our biggest disappointment was on our last morning before we flew home. Being Easter Sunday we knew that a lovely brunch was being laid on in the hotel. However, we did not have the time to relax and enjoy such a feast due to travelling to Denver to catch our flight. The annoying thing was that there was no other option for breakfast on this morning and no one had mentioned this to us, despite us saying to breakfast staff the previous morning that it was unlikely we would have the time for the Easter brunch. We then had to travel around the area with hungry children and a packed car trying to find a diner on a busy Easter Sunday - there is nowhere else to eat in Redstone. What would've been appreciated is if staff had offered us a coffee/ juice before we left - as we checked out at 10.30 not having had any sort of refreshment. We fed this back to staff at reception who simply apologised but didn't make us feel better. It felt that all their attention was on the guests staying for brunch and our experience was not really listened to. As I mentioned in the title, this left us feeling disappointed and took the edge off what had been a fantastic two weeks. We stayed in many fantastic places during the course of our holiday, and sadly we left here feeling we ended our holiday in the place we would've ranked lowest. This is not to say that this place is awful, it's a very pleasant place to stay generally and has loads of potential. But it was not the experience we wanted at the end of our holiday when we wanted everything to be perfect.

Room Tip: We had a veranda double queen room. The verandas are shared with other rooms. One side faces the c...

The day I arrived three hours late from a huge snowstorm at Vail, I was greeted to a snowman at the front door holding a tray of champagne flutes and a sign that read " Welcome Vail Pass Survivors!". Holy Cow that was awesome! I love this hotel. It's seated on a river. You see wildlife. Cool things to do are all nearby: (explore the 100 year old coke ovens, get the key to the town museum, go on a ride at the horse ranch, take a dip at the natural hot springs). The hotel itself is decorated like a Ralph Lauren catalogue. The beds are amazing. The bathrooms are a little small. Our room came with a box fan which was great because I like white noise. There are two restaurants in the hotel (and bar). The bar was quiet and me and my friends were allowed to plug our iPod in so we could listen to reggae while we played board games (Cards Against Humanity- with the staff!) Hilarious! I can't wait to go back. Five stars for sure!

If you like quiet rustic lodges with tons of character and a friendly helpful staff this is the place. The Inn has a fantastic friendly feel to it. We only ate in the lounge but the food there was great. The bed was wonderful and the room squeaky clean. Redstone is such a beautiful place I hated to leave.

This mountain lodge has a fun Euro feel to it and is incredibly warm and comfortable. The main living areas of this fabulous Inn boast comfortable leather seating, lush dark wood and fixtures, and charming historical photos of years past in the river valley. Two streams run through the 20 private acres, so there is the constant peaceful hum of moving water. A lovely pool, hot tub, and various sitting areas sit in back of the property. There is also a cute little chalet, or cottage recently built on the river, with plans to add a number more, per the proprietors. The rooms themselves are comfortable and clean and, given the relatively small size of the Inn, you really don't run into that many other people. It really is living off the grid! The town of Redstone was charming and the stores adorable, almost as if they never experienced city folk. There was a delightful ranch across the street where we were able to take horses up into the mountain trails; a delightful little jaunt! Hot springs are also located right down the street, which we found remarkably soothing after a day on moguls and powder. And to top it off, the on-site restaurant offered wonderful daily specials, prepared to the highest standard, yet without any hint of aloofness you might find in other nearby towns. Definitely worth checking out, even if you're not a guest at the Inn. The proprietors, front desk staff, housekeeping, and all restaurant staff were most courteous and helpful, the goal clearly to make our stay the best it could be. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: My personal preference is to be on the second level, floor two. Nice balconies to sit on. Also had...

My husband and I were at the Redstone Inn Summer 2013 as part of a driving trip from Ohio. We flew into Denver, and continued a loop around Colorado, beginning in Estes Park, and ending up in Durango, and back to Denver. We knew The Redstone was off the beaten path, but we like digging up history, and exploring, and that's just what this little town felt like. Redstone is literally one small road with shops, restaurants and some residential. We walked up and down several times in our two-day stay. It sort-of feels like the place time forgot. NO cell reception, and just peace and quiet. The Redstone Inn itself was very clean, and as long as you understand you are staying in a historic motel, you won't be disappointed. The floors creak, and are not level, the plumbing isn't "modern" like we're used to. But, it's clean and quite comfortable, and the staff is excellent. We ate in the restaurant there a couple times. Food was good; a little slow, but it was still fine. Would definitely recommend this gem if you are headed "west" as we were.

We had a basic room, which was fine. We did have a problem the second night with a whistling radiator. It took a long time to locate the source of the problem--at about 4 a.m.--but someone came when we did determine the source and offered us another room, which was a little newer and quite nice. This didn't make up for the loss of sleep, though. When I complained, the charge for that night was immediately taken off our bill, with apologies. So we were happy about their response. Oh, we did have to prop a window open. I'm sure someone would have brought something to prop it up with if we'd been more assertive--we just used a drawer. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Overall, it's a very attractive and interesting historic building.
Food was good and we enjoyed eating outside, the scenery was beautiful, and we enjoyed looking at the old coke ovens and the company cottages in the old town. It was also a good location to get to Marble, to Aspen and to the Maroon Bells.

Room Tip: You might want to check out the radiator if you take an older room on the second floor. We had a ba...
