4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property is a bit older, but still charming. The position is very convenient to reach the ski resort; there is also the shatter for a full service. The staff is very friendly and take care immediately of any request or need. The feeling is that of family-managed property. Weak points are: The Wi-Fi is very poor and there is no coverage in the rooms; The restaurant menu is limited and always the same.

It was right by where we were skiing so that was really convenient. Offered breakfast and dinner and the food was good. Had a lot of things to do there... pool, hot tubs, basketball courts, pool tables, and an arcarde.

Most of the staff is pretty awesome. Like everywhere, you can tell they're currently understaffed, but you can tell those that work there enjoy their job for the most part. The hotel store could carry some more items like local products, cbd products, etc. But it’s very convenient to monarch and that’s huge. Owning a business like this in the Colorado Mountains is an entirely own species of animal in itself, im not sure how long the current owners have owned it or where they’re from, but it kinda seems like whomever the owners are, are newer to Colorado. Not a bad thing, I’ve owned multiple businesses over the years, in the mountains & metro, doing business in the mountains is a challenge. The price is better than anywhere in town, and the water is 1000x better than water in Salida. Overall it’s a pretty cool place, great location, and super convenient for the ski resort.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Clean and fine for the price. Great location relative to Monarch ski area (a few minutes further up the mountain). No frills, only ice machine that worked was on lobby floor. Didn't try the on-property restaurant, but looked to have sufficient basic options. Glitch with not having hot water to shower was quickly resolved. Elevator did not always want to open at the lobby. Lobby staff friendly and helpful.

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was courteous and hard-working. The property is old and needs major work. We went to the pool to swim and after 10 minutes they closed it because sewage started coming up through the drain outside the pool door. They had a gift shop/coffee bar that has next to nothing in it and the coffee bar never opened. They had a cocoa/cappacino machine but it was broken. The ice machine on our floor was broken and all of the drink/snack vending machines were broken. The parking lot was not shoveled and there was a monster ice formation hanging from the roof above a walkway to the building that I pray does not fall on any guest. The overnight clerk I was very impressed with. I went to the lobby at 4am and sat down but he didn't see me for a little while and i watched this man cleaning glass and rugs. I told him that integrity was doing the right thing when no one was looking! The cook had resigned so there was not much to eat in the restaurant but the staff there did the best they could for breakfast making burritos and serving just bacon and eggs for breakfast because the waitstaff had to pick up the slack.
