“Fantastic Room. Great Price”
Reviewed 11 November 2012 via mobile

A clean, comfortable room at a fantastic price! We stayed 1 night but we'll be back. Jim, the owner, was both king and knowledgable! His employee! Evan was also great! The breakfast was really good. The only place of improvement would be to upgrade the wifi to include a stronger signal. I couldn't even get on in the lobby! Other than that, we had NO complaints:). We'd be back...and bring books instead of the tablet!

Reviewed 30 October 2012

We were in town for a square dance event and only spent one night, so we didn't get a chance to use all the amenities. But the staff was very pleasant, the rooms were nice and well maintained, the beds were quite comfortable, and the setting beautiful. I especially appreciated the heating/cooling unit that ran with no rattles or buzzes, as so many do! I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

Stayed at Water Wheel Inn while on our fall vacation.. Nice place: country feel, quiet...serene...The hot tub needed more water but was still nice after a day of Motorcyle riding.. Ate at The Trough next door and was wonderful...Was able to do laundry here and they were very accommodating...Breakfast was awesome with pastries; cinnamon rolls, blueberry scones, pumpkin scones, coffee. Liked our stay very much....

We stayed at this location a couple of nights during the last week of September, 2012. This was not our first stay here, and we will certainly go back in the future. I really enjoy the laid back, quiet nature of the unit. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. There is a well equipped workout room and spa area, if you are so inclined. I highly recommend this location if you are needing lodging in the Gunnison, Co area.

We stayed for a night during the USA National pro cycling race. It is an older hotel but quiet. The back has a golf course that guests are not allowed on but it is nice to sit and watch. They have chairs and picnic tables along the hotel so quests can sit. The front has a small pond with running water and a little bridge next to the office. They still had hotel keys for rooms, but they might be in the process of going to cards someday. It was clean comfortable and enjoyable . If back in the area we would return. Breakfast had cereal, oatmeal, and muffins and Donuts plus coffee and orange juice. So not a lot to pick from for breakfast. We did not try the next door Trough restaurant deciding to venture out into Gunnison instead.

Reviewed 9 July 2012

This is the second time we've stayed at the Water Wheel Inn. The Inn is showing it's age although I still think it's a good deal. There's not many hotel choices in Gunnison. We had a second floor room and were there for 2 nights.. It was clean and quiet. The Inn appeared to be only about half full - so we didn't really have many neighbors. We had a room with 2 queen size beds and were really only in the room a very short while in the evening and to sleep at night. Then we were gone all day. We did not go over to their breakfast so I can't comment on that. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was functional (although the shower handle was a bit tricky to manuever). There is a nice restaurant and bar next door, The Trough, which we ate at one night.
