Great accommodations, awesome lobby/lounge area, and the hot tub is fantastic in the cold! Our room (Log Hill) was nice overall, though the bed was a little bit stiff. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant had a great menu. We recently stayed using a groupon deal, and instead of a free continental breakfast, we instead were given a VIP...

This place was amazing and definitely a Perfect Getaway!! My husband and I were looking for a romantic Colorado place with a cozy log cabin feel and beautiful scenery. Chipeta captured all of that and much more. The view from our room was breathe-taking. The onsite "Four Corners Cafe" had an intimate ambiance with flavorful gourmet meals. Al, the chef...

First of all, Ridgway is a nice little town. Not a whole lot to do, especially in the winter, but it has some ok little shops and surprisingly good restaurants for such a small town. Chipeta is nothing fancy, but it's a decent getaway in the winter. They have a cozy lounge with a fireplace and a little bar stocked...

I am genuinely surprised by some of the reviews below. Obviously some of these travelers have a skewed perspective of the place and life in general. We visited the Chipeta on a Groupon deal this past weekend, and we couldn't of asked for a better time. Everyone there was eager to please and make our vacation the best it could...

My boyfriend and I have been enjoying the western slope of Colorado quite a bit. We found a Groupon for this place and were pleasantly surprised. The city itself is surrounded by stunning views and the locals were all very nice. The hotel has a boutique resort feel to it and the solar tub was amazing - along with the...

Our room was atrocious. There was very little light, it had a poor layout, and you could hear everything from the outside. I got a whiff of funky smells when we first came, and they never went away. There isn't much to do in the resort besides work out in tiny, cramped gym and go in the heated pool (which...

Dear Peter, Yes it is true that all of our units come with blinds so as to block the sunlight allowing some guests the comfort of darkness to sleep in by, if so desired. Our great room, a common area located in the Lodge, offers two-story wrap around windows that with our passive solar design not only heats the solarium...

If you'd like to hear the guests next door talk, walk, laugh or cry you'll love these paper thin walls. The lobby music was left on all night which means we couldn't sleep. Although the bed, pillows and linens circa 1910 didn't help the situation. Anyone could have looked through the window without blinds into our room. Only one person...

Dear Unsatisfied Guest, I am terrible sorry to hear that your stay with us was all together terrible. Our main Lodge in an Adobe style building that works quite well for our green and passive solar initiatives but occasionally we do receive a noise complaint as some guests are less aware of their surrounds and personal noise level.

Truly, this place is stunning. The location is absolutely beautiful, and away from main roads. The Southwestern decor throughout the inside is very beautiful and relaxing. The staff are friendly, high caliber people who genuinely care about their guests comfort. The rooms are quiet, clean and quite nicely furnished. Now we get to the best parts! They have a clean,...

You would not think that a small quaint little town like Ridgway, CO would have such an adorable southwestern style lodge. I loved the Honeymoon Suite. The bed was simple, and soft, and too easy to sleep in. It has a beautiful view, fireplace (no real logs), and a private hot tub at the highest point of the hotel w/...

We (my daughter-in-law and myself), spent 2 nights at the Chipeta Solar Sun Lodge the end of October. It was the off season so the hotel was not even half full. That is how we like it. We had originally booked the Tower room, (2 beds with separate rooms) but since it was upstairs (directly above the front desk) and...
