We have travelled to Crested Butte several times and decided to visit in Ocober to get an early dose of cold weather away from Texas. Knowing town would be basically deserted this time of year, waited until last minute to book. Everything was easily handled over the internet and a key was waiting for us at the front desk upon...

We visited this Inn in June. There was still snow on the ground. The very nice Innkeeper even upgraded our cozy room to one with a balcony. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views of Mt Crested Butte and the city below. A very nice simple breakfast was there to get us going in the morning....

Reserved just by reviews and it paid off. Was a Miner's hotel back in the day. Our room was excellent, well maintained and the breakfast was great. Easy walk to downtown for dining and drinking.

Our one night in Crested Butte was at the more expensive Elk Mountain Lodge. It is within walking distance of downtown and all the shops and restaurants. The room was very nicely decorated. I wish there had been a comfortable chair though. My major complaint is there are a lot of stairs and at a higher elevation, we were very...

A former miners' lodge, Elk Mountain has a great historic feel in a clean environment. Other pros: the neighborhood setting that was still in close proximity to the main street, the friendly and available staff (desk closes at 9 pm), the free cruiser bikes for use around town, free shared computer and wifi access, very clean and comfortable bedding, and...

This was our second visit to Mountain Lodge and it was wonderful. I wondered if 5 days would be too long of a visit, but I found myself wanting to stay another five. Erica, Mike and Tracey are super. They share their knowledge about the mountains and the town. No doubt, that they cater to outdoor enthusiast. Mountain bikes are...

The location is two walkable blocks from the historical downtown. Our room was perfectly adequate with the very slight complaint the toilet area was a bit cramped. The WiFi worked fine, and they have a commercial laundry for their own use the guests are welcome to use at $5/load which included soap and the washer plus dryer. There's an inside...

This hotel is an a great spot, very close to the main drag in Crested Butte but its getting a little shabby and could do with some sprucing up. Faded old pictures dot the walls (blue is a bad sign) and the plants all along the top corridor are withering away. And why so mean with the coffee? could you...

If the worst thing is faded pictures in the 3rd floor hallway and a small coffee pot I'm not sure this warrants a negative review? There was nothing negative said about the rooms or breakfast. I guess he missed our commercial espresso machine that makes very strong coffee and our 10 pieces of original art. Sorry, can't play rock and...

Very nice rooms all with a view. Nothing fancy but clean rooms with comfortable beds. Expanded continental breakfast buffet with a hot entree, wonderful local breads and jams and lots of fruit. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate always available and afternoon sweets (if you get there in time). Short walk to downtown and helpful staff who can recommend restaurants and...

First of all, Crested Butte Colorado is frickin cool. I love that town! Great places to bike, decent places to eat, and it's all within easy walking distance from Elk Mountain Lodge. We flew into Denver and rented a car and drove to Crested Butte. Our car sat in Crested Butte pretty much our entire stay there - we just...
