Quaint would hardly describe the place--it would be a gross overstatement

Best price, great location

Posted Sep 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room was more than adequate on the coal creek side with a bathroom. Furnishings were quaint and the bed comfortably furnished with down comforter. (although, not needed). Overall, a pleasant stay and restful night with sounds of the river flowing outside our window. Definitely recommend this hotel if you don't need luxury accommodations and need a convenient location for all downtown Crested Butte has to offer.

Forest Queen Hotel and restaurant

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: In downtown.
Cons: A bit or deferred maintenance needs to be addressed.
Location: Everything the town has to offer. See above.
Great experience. Right in downtown Crested Butte, just parked the car for 3 days and walked or rode bikes. Close to restaurants and shops and the Labor Day Craft fair on the main street was on. CB is also a mtn. biking mecca and you can ride right from the hotel. The rooms are basic, no fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer but coffee is right downstairs in the restaurant. Excellent food and the patio next to the creek is great. Last time we stayed in a condo at Mt. Crested Butte and then drove to town. (3-4 miles). Too isolated and somewhat sterile, but all the amenities.

One nite stay

Posted Aug 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Euro styled & well aged. Great location if your focus is Elk Ave & the downtown. Everyone was respectful of the close quarters. Lux can be had in Mt Crested Butte.

Great location but amenities, not so nice.

Posted Aug 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
The location is great. The service is pretty much non-existent. You can have your bed made and receive fresh towels, but there isn't any "cleaning" beyond that. The hotel is old and therefore so are the amenities in the room. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in town, then stay here. If you want some simple luxuries, like a shower that doesn't constantly switch from freezing to scalding, then I would suggest booking a different place to stay.

Thanks for your comments. The shower situation has been remedied as far as steady water temperature. Cleanliness is our top priority. We are a 2 star hotel and guarantee the best rates in Crested Butte. We only offer WIFI, daily bed makeup service and provide fresh towels.

Good Location

Posted Jul 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
While the hotel is very old and small, it was comfortable.. We had private bathroom and queen bed. Not a lot of space but adequate for sleeping. Room was clean for the most part but under the bed could have been dusted. There is a very nice patio dining at street level. Owner & restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is located at the end of the main street so very good location and easy to access. It is located next to a bar so Saturday night we could hear music and people downstairs on the sidewalk until about 2AM but we still were able to sleep through that noise and kept the windows open due to ventilation. Although old, the bed was comfortable and nice sheets & pillows. Prices were good considering the location as most places charge a lot more.

With a little TLC Forest Queen could be great

Posted Jul 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Positives are that the sheets/towels and bathroom were clean (except for the used bar of soap in the shower left over from previous room occupant, soap scum in the sink soap dish, and dried toothpaste on the bathroom faucet) and the manager was accommodating when we needed an extra hour to checkout. The negatives, there is no designated check in area - we had to grab a waitress from the restaurant located in the hotel and she was pretty clueless about checking in and where to park, the floor of the room was very dirty but when we called to have it cleaned it was, the windows were filthy, the lamp shade grimy, and the carpeted entrance to the hotel was beyond filthy. With a good deep cleaning, some TLC to worn and too dirty to be cleaned areas, and perhaps getting rid of the current cleaning service (seems like a waste of money for the hotel management-whoever is cleaning the room is doing a half-baked job), this could be a really nice, historical hotel. The location is great, right on Elk Avenue, close to shops and restaurants, but that also means that there's noise from the bars until about 2am but we managed that with earplugs. The feeling we got is that the manager puts all his effort/energy into the restaurant, Coal Creek Grill (which we didn't eat at after seeing the not so clean condition of the room). While it's advertised as a budget hotel, that shouldn't mean that cleanliness is sacrificed. Not sure they get many repeat customers.

All you really need in a hotel

Posted Mar 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
I didn't come to Crested Butte to stay in a fufu spa resort that charges an arm and a leg, I came to shred the gnar. This was the cheapest hotel in the area and gave me exactly what I needed, a bed to pass out on after a multi-day ski trip across CO. It is located right off of Elk St (main st) and even has a bar/restaurant on the first floor if you don't feel like leaving. Downsides were the thin walls and coldish night but a little visit to the bar will fix both of these.

Classic Beauty

Posted Mar 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Forest Queen Hotel was a tremendous value for the $99.50 after all taxes and fees. The Location was amazing, since the classic 1891 hotel was located in the heart of Crested Butte, and was only a short 30-step walk to the free bus. The room featured no TV or radio, which was amazing, since it actually forced my girl friend and myself to have a real conversation, and read education magazines provided by the classic 1891 hotel. Yes, Limonoid’s and limonin and real, which I only learned due to reading the educational magazine. The bed was amazingly comfy, and the headboard certainly provides food for thought on future hotel reservations. The shared bathroom was a great treat and reminds us that going back into time and living in 1891 would not have been fun.
