The four of us were on a trip through Colorado and Utah and needed a place to stay in that part of Colorado for the night. We searched on the internet and on Trip Advisor and decided that the Winchester looked to be the place for us. It turned out to be exactly what we wanted. It was very clean, affordable, and central in Rifle. But the best thing about the Winchester was the owners. Both were so friendly and talkative. They were the best hosts we had during our road trip.The motel is not brand new but is the clean mom and pop independent kind of place we like to stay at.
In the midst of our trip we were afraid we might have to cancel because of the flooding that hit the front range area of Colorado. We phoned and found the owner so amenable to what we needed to do but we decided to keep our reservation and were so glad we did.
Some posters stated that the breakfast was not so good. We strongly disagree. For mom and pop kind of places the breakfast was outstanding. There was lots of choice in the breakfast room and it was very good. When it comes to continental breakfasts this was great! I think I remember that it lacked juice but there were apples and bananas among the choices.
The motel was just a very short walk to the downtown street where you can find shops and restaurants in this very cute town that is not a highly touristy town.
We give the Winchester a strong recommendation!
