We recently stayed three nights at the Silver Ridge, finishing up a week long tour through south central Colorado. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have booked there but a local that runs an unrelated business suggested the motel to me because of the cleanliness. Being a clean freak as I am, I wasn't disappointed.
The motel is dated with an old architectural style, but it is really clean, spacious and has benches outside your door to enjoy the cool air and beautiful mountain scenery. Windows that open are a nice touch from the old days. Our room had two nice queen beds, a coffee maker, small fridge and micro. Since we stayed three nights, the fridge really came in handy.
The motel offers an outdoor heated pool and an indoor sauna. One evening I thought the pool was closed because the cover was on, but it turned out that the owner was just keeping it warm. Since the kids were wanting to swim in the evening, it was just right.
This motel was without a doubt the most enjoyable place we stayed on the entire trip. It is family owned and they seem to take a lot of pride in their place. The folks were constantly busy.
Granted, it's not the Ritz or some fancy lodge$$$, but for the price we were well pleased and will stay there again when the leaves change.
