Just got back from our Colorado vacation and this was the stand out hotel of the week. Deer Crest is a quiet motel-type resort with a pretty natural setting along the Fall River and just a short drive into town. There is an outdoor pool and chairs and patio sets along the river to just sit, relax and watch the wildlife.
We had room 312 which was a suite with a king size bed, kitchenette, A/C and a fire place. There was also a small table with chairs outside our door next to the river and in view of two amusing marmots sunning themselves just feet away.
The proprietor was friendly and easy to approach. My luggage was lost and was going to be delivered between 10pm and 2am. I let Ken know about the luggage and he left a sign on the reception door, as well as his own home phone number to call to ensure the bag was delivered since reception would be closed at that hour. A true gesture of hospitality.
