Positive Reviews

Rocky Mountain highlights

Surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, there are a number of stunning views that can be found on the grounds of the hotel. Travelers say the hotel's decor is also nice looking and helps add to the scenery.

Accommodations big and cozy

The rooms at the hotel are spacious according to guests who point out that accommodations are also packed with in-room amenities including a microwave and a mini-fridge. Visitors also explain that the beds are very soft and the entire room offers you a nice place to relax.

Wonderful staff

Guests rave about the performance of the employees saying that they are willing to do anything and everything to help you out. In addition to this, the staff is also very friendly and makes you feel as if you are at home.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast misses the mark

The hotel serves a continental breakfast but some visitors weren't thrilled with the service. Not only is the breakfast room somewhat cramped but the options available at breakfast are limited according to several guests.

Tricky temperature

It can be difficult to get the room to a comfortable temperature and a few travelers state that things can be a little bit too hot when you first enter the room. All accommodations have air conditioning as well as a heater but finding the right balance can be an issue.

Restaurant not always open

A couple of guests complain that the on-site restaurant is only open in the busy season during the summer. This means if you are looking for food during other times of the year you will need to venture off the property to find it.
