Stayed for one night following positive reviews here on route to Mesa Verde. I wasn’t expecting an exceptional place but I have to say I was very disappointed.
It is slightly out of the main area so you have to drive out for your evening meal.
Teresa the owner was very pleasant and welcoming and said she would always make fresh coffee in reception whenever we wanted. Unfortunately, the ‘smell’ of the two very large dogs did not make the reception area very appealing. I always ask at reception if they can recommend anywhere to eat in the evening. I was told that they couldn’t really think where to recommend but that previous guests haven’t complained about anywhere. I don’t understand why someone who has lived here for so long couldn’t suggest a good place.
The room was small and the furniture, fittings and linen old and tired. Nothing welcoming or appealing and we were glad it was only the one night (to be honest, we wished we had not bothered). A/C unit was extremely noisy and old fashioned. It shows amenities as having a pool – well the small outside pool has obviously not been used for many years so don’t expect to be able to have a dip.
Previous reviewers have said that they expect the owner will smarten things up – well she has been here for around 18 years so how long will it take? She was a lovely lady but also charges top dollar for this room and no breakfast (well coffee and pre-packed little pastry).
I would not recommend this place. It is not quaint, it is well past its sell by date and needs a complete overhaul. Rates are high because of location – so what is money spent on????
