“Disappointing.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

I wish i would have found the bad reviews before i went to stay at the Alps. The bad reviews are dead accurate. The place is very run down and not well cared for. The deserts that were provided were old hard cookies and some coffee, tea or hot chocolate you can make yourself. The crisman room was disappointing to say the least and the "fireplace" smoked terribly. There was only a uninviting shower in the old that had a yucky looking floor. The owner who was very nice was kind enough to offer me the use of a bathtub in another room since it was not busy, which i was grateful for. My son and i enjoyed the cat and the dog that roam the hotel. Breakfast was terrible except for the orange juice. When the owner served it was tolerable, but the second day when another person served she was unfriendly and what i assumed was microwaved quiche was barely warm and the scone served cold. After the breakfast myself and another person were trying to find someone at the front desk to check out. After waiting for several minutes i heard noise coming from a back room, that i assumed was the kitchen because i saw our food coming from that direction. The door was marked private but cracked open so i opened it to call for whomever was in there and was met with a disgustingly dirty sight of what looked like a dusty old garage piled high with junk in every space. Hardly room to walk through, tables and floor piled high with old dirty junk. I was so disturbed and disgusted thinking that my food likely came through that environment much less the possibility that it may have been prepared there. The girl who served our breakfast was in there and came rushing out as soon as i opened the door.

They offer a wonderful ski package that includes lift tickets. We chose Alps Inn for our honeymoon. It exceeded our expectations! It is such a beautiful place. The owners are absolutely wonderful and are so kind. It is a very warm, inviting and comfortable place. Our room had a fireplace and jacuzzi/bathtub, along with a King size bed. The breakfast every morning was wonderful, along with the endless coffee, tea, hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies. If you are considering skiing at El Dora or a neighboring ski resort, this is the best place to stay. Dennis and Jessica Bare (Houston, TX)

My wife and I stayed here for our 19th anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay. Great proximity to Boulder. Our hosts Jeannine and John were very helpful and personable. Homemade cookies and key lime pie (which was fantastic). Even cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. Very rustic, ski lodge type feel which we really like. We have stayed at many B&B's and found this to probably be our favorite. Will be a repeat for sure!

I found this B&B to be very peaceful and rustic. Quite charming and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Conveniently located just west of Boulder yet up in the canyon with a remote feel. I'd stay here again!

Very charming historic B&B! The fireplaces in the rooms and around the inn added to the romantic feel of the mountain inn. We really enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning, especially the cranberry scones...yum! The owners and staff were very accommodating and friendly. The room that we stayed in (The Magnolia) was comfortable and charming. We would love to stay again.
