I had been traveling with my dog Sampson from Ouray to Gunnison. We had been staying at KOA's, during our previous nights travels. When I arrived at the KAO in Gunnison, it was at the conclusion of the 24-hour Mountain Bike event and the grounds were crazy. The manager kindly suggested I try Island Acres Resort just across the highway. I took his advice and was so glad that I did. Pam, the owner, was very gracious and offered me a couple of different pet friendly rooms to look at. The little efficiency units were immaculate and reminded me of décor from my parent's home in Pittsburgh, while we were growing up. What impressed me the most was the comfort of the bed AND the freshness of the sheets and towels. They were so soft and smelled so fresh that I had to compliment Pam upon my leaving the next day. The kitchenette was fully stocked too. So you can safe additional monies by having such features for meal planning. Another nice feature is the location of this hotel to the Gunnison River. It is so easy to walk to this soothing and relaxing river. If you like Trout fishing, this is the place to stay.
Well done Tim & Pam and I guarantee that I will stay here again, upon my next visit to Gunnison or Crested Butte.
