My husband and I had to leave the high mountains during a storm because I had developed a severe case of altitude sickness. We ended up here because it was lower in altitude and easier for me to handle. For the price, we were satisfied. The breakfast area is extremely small so tables are limited but it's cute. Breakfast was... More

I had read some of the recent reviews and came into my trip with some minor ambivalence. I found this hotel to be nothing of what the negative reviews stated, and I realized two things. 1. Some people just can't be satisfied and 2. No,...this is not the Ritz....it a mountain town hotel with a very mountain feel. With my... More

First you should know I am a stickler for cleanliness. I have stayed here twice and it has been CLEAN. I always read the terrible reviews about hotels first. I will tell you this hotel is privately owned and very well kept. Yes, they do accept pups, one room set aside and it doesn't smell like dogs and it was... More

We had a whole group of couples doing a fall Harley ride. We booked here and we're very pleasantly surprised about the quality of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. You never know what to expect when you book these but we were happy that we ended up here.

The rustic décor of the lobby was wonderful! The room was clean and comfortable, the managers were very friendly, and, in the evening, the smell of coffee in the lobby was enticing (but, he said it wasn't decaf, so I didn't drink any). The breakfast was more than adequate. We stayed two nights. The location is very convenient for visiting... More

We found this hotel to be adequate. Our room was clean and that's really important. We found the beds to be comfortable. We would recommend getting a room that doesn't face the main road if any traffic noise bothers you. There is no elevator, laundry, ice machine or soda machine so plan accordingly. Breakfast was the usual affair. Coffee good,... More

Very clean, updated room. Quiet, comfortable, with excellent breakfast. Lovely western touches in the decor. The price is much better than other hotels that can't possibly offer any better experience. Have stayed at some very poor hotels in recent months, and this was a very welcome change -- management and staff obviously care about providing quality at a great value.... More

This is a smaller hotel (used to be a Days Inn). The hosts are very friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and clean . . . comfy beds, nice linens, lots of pillows. The morning breakfast had some protein and fresh fruit along with the usual yogurt and bread/sweets. We were especially happy given the affordable price.

Wow, where do I start? Brown's Canyon Inn from the outside, looks to be your normal chain motel except for its large hotel sign which announces to the world TWICE that it is the Brown's Canyon Inn.

My husband and I stayed at this motel last night and found it delightful! Everything was very clean, the bed was so comfortable. The rustic Colorado decor is lovely! We had such an interesting visit with the owner, too. We definitely will return.

“The highway side of the hotel wasn't terribly noisy, but I would ask for a room on the back next time.”

“Don't get a room that opens into the front lobby... no privacy in that regards.”
  • More flowers even behind the TV
  • Guard Bird at the front door
  • Not a modern hotel but it served the purpose
