“Wonderful place to stay for a few days”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in August, and it was a delight. We were so happy to find someplace with a kitchen for such a reasonable price!

We had a room with a king-sized bed and a kitchen. It was small, but happy. The "small" factor is probably the only one that would bother some people - the bathroom was small, the shower was small, the closet was the most adorable closet I've ever seen (read: small) - but it didn't bother us at all. Everything was super clean.

We were there in the middle of the week, so things were extra quiet, which suited us just fine. Gunnison ended up being an excellent jumping-off point - we were able to spend a day at Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and another exploring the Alpine Loop around Lake City. My husband loved being so close to Hartman Rocks, as well - he mountain biked there every morning.

The website for this hotel was easy to use and includes a map so you can see pretty much exactly where your room is going to be. This motel had all the charm of the old-time roadside motels with all the modern amenities.

Definitely recommend this as a place to stay - we hope to stay here again next summer!

We have stayed at Island Acres twice so far and love it! They have the most comfortable beds of any motel/hotel I have ever stayed in! The rooms are clean, spacious, & comfortable. An amazing value, too. We will definitely always choose Island Acres when we are in the area!!

This is an AWESOME place to stay. Very quiet. Always a clean room to return to every night. Very Comfortable bed. And in the early morning you might get to see a family of Deer running through the property. I enjoyed watching Pam & Tim and some of the other guest sit around the fire pit, Enjoying the cool evening and enjoying all the stars. I must say we will be back. Thanks again for a GREAT stay..♥

Island Acres Motel is probably the best experience I have had. The place was clean, comfortable and the beds and pillows were wonderful. Pam will get you anything you need. In our case we really didn't need anything. Just help with our WiFi. Fully equiped with dishes, pot and pans, flat ware, you name it. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All one level. The units on the east side are more shady.

My husband and I stayed there a week. It was the best. Great rates, clean, nice big rooms. The rooms have kitchens with everything you need. The owners and employees are friendly and will go out of their way to take care of all your needs. The setting is peaceful and relaxing. It is centrally located. We took a scenic trip everyday. It was so relaxing to return everyday to Island Acres. We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed overnight here after spending a day at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It looked very inviting as we turned into the shaded drive and the first impression continued as we saw our cabin. Our unit had a full kitchen, table and chairs and a very comfortable king bed. It is an older resort but that adds to the charm of the place. Needless to say it is well maintained. The staff was friendly, helpful and easy to talk with. We enjoyed it so much we would like to go back for an extended stay in the near future.

Our family of 4 was taking our annual trip up to Colorado and had a wonderful stay at this small and quaint roadside Motel. We pulled in with our car over heating and had a very nice room within minutes. They allowed us to check out the rooms first and pick the one we liked the best considering we had 4 people staying. The rooms were very clean, neat, and the beds were very comfortable. We opened up the windows and let the fresh mountain air in and enjoyed the area around the motel as well. We made a campfire at night with wood provided by the motel. We were going to stay two nights because of the car trouble, but we got the car moving again and headed on our way. We would definitely stay here again, due to the friendliness of the staff, the cabin-like feel, comfort of the rooms, and the cleanliness. There was a river near the motel that we enjoyed as well. All in all a wonderful stay!!! Highly recommend this little Colorado gem!
