“One of the worst...”
Reviewed 17 November 2010

My husband and I planned on staying at this hotel after a long day climbing La Plata. We picked this hotel 1) Because they allowed dogs and 2) Because they were the only ones in town besides the Super 8 that had a room (the Super 8 is expensive, for a Super 8).
When we got in our room and closed the door there was at least an 1 inch gap under the door letting cold air and snow in the room (since the doors open to outside instead of to a hallway). The heat was not on in the room and it took forever for the ancient heater to even think about warming the room. The bathroom was awful. The floor in the shower was black, since it obviously was not being cleaned regularly.
After being in our room for only a couple of minutes we decided it was so bad we weren't going to stay there so we went to ask for our money back. The manager was rude and would not give us our money back. We had paid around $70 for the room and he finally gave us only $15 back. So we went back to the room, took an hour nap, and made the 10 hour drive back home.
I would never stay here again.

I booked a room here because of the positive reviews on tripadvisor. To say that my friend and I were disappointed would be a gross understatement! The room was clean enough, I guess, but that didn't make up for paint peeling off the walls, bedspreads torn with stuffing coming out, and an old bathroom with a door that had strips of veneer peeled off. And for that we paid $75/ night!! I wanted a lodging in the historic downtown (where this one is) but found that the other motels were not very far and that parking was not an issue in the town. This experience has made me question the value of reviews on tripadvisor.

Drove 30 hours straight from md to see my bf in Leadville. Tiny quaint little town.. very beautiful in winter. The place reminds me of a large scale Christmas village with all the lights and snow....

This hotel was convenient and in town. The room was nice enough with a fridge and whatnot. Bed was large and comfortable. For a tiny hotel in a tiny town i had nothing to complain about.The owner plowed the snow outa the parking lot so we could get out.

For the price it was perfect. :-)

Yes, it was clean, but shabby. The paint was peeling off the walls, door in the bathroom had wood peeling off, bedspreads were full of rips, carpet stained and very old. The shower leaked into the bathroom, making a pool of the floor each morning and the calking job on the tub looked like a 10 year old may have been hired to do it. Over all, $75 per night was way too much for what was worse than most hostels I have stayed in around the world. Don't be fooled by the convenience factor.

Reviewed 19 September 2009

Indeed, it's an older motel, and parts of the place looked it. However, it was clear that some upgrades had been made (renovated bathroom), and (1) the price was quite fair - $60+tax/night for non-smoking room w/King bed, (2) the housekeeping was very good, and (3) the closeness to downtown Leadville was quite convenient - easy walk to shopping and dining. You might bring along ear plugs - the walls are a bit thin - but we tended to leave early and come back late. We readily overlook extra frills for clean and price-friendly lodging - when we return to Leadville, we'll very likely be back here.
