“Clean & comfortable gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2011

We love to stay at these kind of well kept vintage motels when we travel around the state of Colorado. The Long Holiday Motel did not disappoint. The owner is great and very accommodating. She allowed us to move rooms when we realized the end room didn't provide very good WiFi service (the other room had a great signal). Easy Peasy. The room was very clean and well appointed with the aforementioned WiFi and a flat-screen television with cable. The hotel is right off Highway 50 but the road noise was very minimal. We came to Gunnison for a family weekend at Western State College and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Gunnison for any reason.

I look for these out-of-the-way older places where I park my car right outside the door, and where the owners CARE if you're comfortable and satisfied.

The room was clean, the bed comfortable (I bring my own pillow). And it offers WiFi; there's also a microwave and refrigerator. Only a shower.

This room is tinier than average, and it might be a bit cramped for two people (but there are chairs by the door, and sitting outside is very plesant!).

This place is great! It's an old 10 room strip motel thats been renovated beautifully. The rooms are small but immaculate, with flat screen tvs, microwaves and fridges. The hostess is the sweetest person on earth! This place is way nicer than any of the big impersonal "box" motels in town. It definitely feels more like you are staying in your favorite aunts guest bedroom than a motel. This will be my home base for any future trips to Gunnison.

This is a wonderful place to stay, clean, comfortable and reasonable. We have stayed during the winter as we are a bunch of crazy ice fisherman and Zofia is always so cheerful and helpful. The coffee is always on!!!

We have been staying at the Long Motel for years. We are from Taos, NM and we travel to Colorado for wildflowers and fall color. My husband is a photographer. Zophia always remembers us no matter how long it has been. The rooms are immaculate and very reasonable! Zophia always makes our stay fantastic!

My husband and I stayed here for several weeks at the beginning of the summer. It was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The rates are fair, the rooms are clean, and the owner, Zophia, is a really nice and friendly host. We enjoyed ourselves greatly. I recomend this place to anyone who is staying in the Gunnison area. It's right by the Gunnison river, which is great for fishing. Thanks a bunch Zophia! You're the best!

One might wonder what they would find behind the huge (and famous) 1950's neon sign on the highway. What a pleasant surprise to enter our room and find it modern, clean and beautifully appointed. From the wood paneled bathroom to the fluffy bed comforters, there was even a small microwave and refrigerator. The innkeeper, Zophia, made us feel welcome and appreciated. Complimentary hot beverages and pastries in the lobby were a nice touch. This is a small owner operated property with about ten rooms that have handy parking right in front. Our Border Collie was pleased with the ample area in back for stretching her legs. We will stay here again!
