“Very nice”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Decent room, clean sheets, and friendly staff. The front desk folks helped literally find a decent restaurant where we had the best steaks. Only complaint was smell of nicotine in nonsmoking room. Otherwise very nice stay

Room Tip: Ask the desk staff.

Dear Low_Daniel09,

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Water Wheel Inn! We do our best to employ staff who are knowledgeable about the area, including where to eat. We apologize for the smell of nicotine in the rooms, as you were in a non-smoking room; we try to eliminate any odors that come from people wrongfully smoking in them. We hope to see you again!

Sincerely,
Water Wheel Inn Staff

The Water Wheel Inn was a surprising find. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. We had passed by this place on a couple of occasions and thought it might be a good place to try, and we were correct. Will definitely stay again next trip to Gunnison.

We always stay at the Water Wheel for our annual fishing trips...at least two or three times a year. The rooms are clean and the location is great. The only reason I didn't give it a five is that the lobby isn't open when we leave to go fishing...so no breakfast. Other than that it is fine.

Room Tip: Boat parking available.

Dear Heavyrescue97,

We are so happy that you have made the Water Wheel Inn your place to stay while you fish. We're sorry that you haven't been able to get breakfast in the morning. Next time you stay, mention what time you'll be leaving to go fishing. We try our best to accommodate all our guests and our morning staff would be more than happy to open up breakfast a little earlier for you. Thank you for taking the time to review us. We look forward to seeing you again!

We stay at the Water Wheel when we come to Gunnison to visit our son who wrestles for Western State Colorado University. It's an older hotel, but the rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and accomodating.

The reason I gave this place a 2 is because it is so absolutely quiet, and that's the only reason. The AC did not work and by the middle of the night, the room was a bit swampy. After showering the next morning, I noticed bites all over my stomach, neck, forehead and ears. BEDBUGS!! Try wearing a motorcycle helmet with bedbug bites on your head and neck. I dug the last bug out of my shirt 100 miles down the road. At that point, all my clothes had to be washed and put in a hot dryer to ensure I didn't bring these hitch hikers to our next destination. My partner contacted the owner and he admitted to knowing that one of the service people there had been severely chewed up a week before....and they did nothing. This "annual" stop has stopped, I don't care what they do to remedy the problem.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else. Even a tent would be a better alternative.

Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for bringing this problem to our attention. We are very sorry that you had such an unfortunate experience during your stay here. We assure you that we are taking this problem very seriously. As you know, bed bugs have been known to hitchhike into many different kinds of places: luxury hotels, theaters, restaurants, homes, and at last, here. The Water Wheel Inn has no previous history of bed bugs. We are vigorously taking actions to ensure their complete eradication in the affected areas. In addition, we are taking measures to prevent their reoccurrence. Thank you for taking the time to review us. We look forward to seeing you again.

Sincerely,
The Water Wheel Inn Staff

I came to run a race in Gunnison. I brought my dog. The accommodations were clean and pleasant. The staff went out of their way, including opening up the breakfast earlier in the morning to accommodate the runners. They even gave one runner a ride to the start of the race! Overall, a very good experience.

We spent last weekend at the Water Wheel Inn at Gunnison when we came up for my daughter's college graduation from Western State Colorado University and really enjoyed our stay here!
We chose the Water Wheel Inn because they advertise that they are pet friendly and we have 2 dogs we were bringing with us for the weekend. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and were into the spirit and support of Western State by wearing T-Shirts from the college. The rooms are clean and have lots of room. They are located just outside of town among the trees and between two small ponds with another one located on the property. It is a very nice and quiet setting and the grounds are very well maintained. The beds are comfortable and the water in the showers is hot and has great pressure. The hot tub room is nice and quiet and clean and the hot tub hot! They have a great breakfast in the morning that is included with the price of the room. The office is comfortable and roomy with nice sitting area, a fireplace and games to play if you have the time. The staff are all very nice and helpful. We were also there on Mother's Day and they were handing out roses to mothers in the morning when we entered the office. I would definitely recommend staying here and will definitely be returning with our two pups. Thanks for a great weekend and for being welcoming to our dogs. They do have separate and specific rooms for patrons with pets so if you don't have them, don't like them or have are allergic there are rooms that do not accommodate pets as well.
