Ideally located 2 short blocks from towns&free bus

Everything here is wonderful. You could choose to stay closer on the mountain but you'd miss out on the convenience and hospitality of this authentic, in-town, on-bus-route location with very good to excellent ree breakfast. While this might sound like a paid review, it's actually one from a frequent world traveler who has visited 40 different ski resorts across the US and Canada. Crested Butte and Elk Mountain Lodge are off the beaten path but offer a LOT in terms of charm, hospitality, and authenticity. If I were to come back, I would definitely stay here as opposed to the newer commercial options that are directly on Mt Crested Butte, especially considering the free and efficient transportation between the charming town and the mountain itself. We were at Elk Mountain Lodge for five full nights and never moved our car once, and that's VERY rare for an OCD type like myself that can't normally sit stilll. The accommodations at Elk Mountain Lodge are not 5 star luxury, nor would they be called spacious, but they are absolutely clean, comfortable,affordable, historic, interesting, friendly and genuinely authentic for families, couples,and friends alike. If I were to return to Crested Butte I'd definitely stay here again and I can absolutely recommend this property without reservation. Go to Colorado, stay at Elk Mountain Lodge and experience Crested Butte for all it's worth!
