We visited with our dogs and went snowboarding up Monarch mountain. Lodge was very accommodating, friendly, and close to the mountain. Wifi didn't reach bottom floor, but it was nice to detach for a few days. Wish we had more time to spend there!

Recently scheduled a Winter Retreat for over 50 people at Monarch Mountain Lodge. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond my expectations to accommodate our group, providing hot meals and a room to use for games and fellowship in the evenings. Location was close to the ski slopes, which made it ideal for families with children!...

I planned a mother / daughter ski trip and we were excited to stay here and close by the slopes. Our stay was very disappointing. The physical building is very run down and is in major need an updating. Half the staff is very nice, the other half are out to lunch. We saw hotel staff climbing in and out...

My boyfriend and I came here for our 5 year anniversary and to try skiing for the first time. It was a great price for such a beautiful view and amenities, 5 minutes from the mountain, and we got lucky and barely saw any other guests in the pool or hot tub ever so it felt like we had the...

Older but some updates. Friendly, clean, comfy beds, good food. But with this view, you won't be in the lodge for long periods. Close to activities. Salida only 20 minute drive. Great shopping and more food prongs if you want something different.

I really want to rate this place higher because quite honestly it has a LOT going for it. Location, location, location are the tops if you plan to ski Monarch. The free shuttle there is nice as well. Plenty of parking, food, pool, hot tub, arcade, bar- all great amenities. Smaller lobby than many "lodges" you think of, but the...

Our weekend was great especially thanks to Foster and James who went out their way to ensure that us wild and crazy gals were taken care of. Hope to see them again next year! The rooms are ok, they need some upgrading still.

I booked a room thru booking.com. Paid up to get a balcony. Got there and no balconies available but they wanted to charge me the same rate. Waiting to talk to the manager I saw 8 or 9 people check in. Only 1 DIDN"T have a problem with their reservation. They blamed it on booking.com but I found out many...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Monarch Mountain Lodge is in the heart of the Rockies and surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. Re-opened in Feb. 2015 Under new ownership, the guest rooms have been repainted, re-carpeted, and refurnished for a more modern feel. We've also put brand new tile in our lobby and restaurant, and fresh carpet in common areas. We are just 4 miles from the Monarch Mountain Ski Area, and given our unique location, the possibilities in terms of outdoor activities are virtually endless. ... more   less
