Alps Motel
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Leadville
Reviewed 22 May 2012

We stayed at the Alps Motel after climbing Mt Elbert and storms were sweeping through our campsite so we would have taken any room available. We were pleasantly surprised we found a room at the Alps. The motel is located just a block or two away from the downtown strip of Leadville. We walked to a restaurant for dinner. The people that own and run the place are very friendly. We had a very good nights sleep. Some of the other places in town looked very run down and appealing a rougher clientele than what I was comfortable with having 2 young boys with me.

I have stayed at the Alps Motel twice now (once in the winter and once in the summer) and both times were great. Do not let other reviews scare you. The staff is very friendly and will explain where good restaurants are or give other suggestions on things to do. Rooms are very clean. The first night we stayed in the king bed and it was very comfortable. The second night we had to switch rooms and we got two queen beds and these were not near as comfortable, but still okay. There is some road noise due to the fact you are right next to the highway. Otherwise, it is pretty quiet because there are only 8 rooms and not many guests. I love the town of Leadville and will be back next year. It's a small, old town so if you're looking to get away on a relaxing vacation and enjoy what the mountains have to offer I recommend staying at the Alps Motel. If you don't want to take my word for it, just drive around the town and LOOK at the other motels and I guarantee you'll go back to the Alps.

Clean and nice...We stayed over Christmas to visit family outside of town. On the drive up from Denver called ahead to let them know approximate arrival time and was told Your in room #3 and the key is inside...then will talk to you tomorrow.
Very old school and super clean. Low key and nice have stayed at the chain motel down the street and wasn't treated like this. Very refreshing to be treated like a your business is appreciated!!! Like someone else posted it is a Ma & Pa place.
One reason we stayed is the Pets Welcome policy which means a lot to us. The place was clean and had a Homey feel...not a new polished place but super clean and quiet for sure.
Will stay there when we need to stay in Leadville again.
Thanks

Room Tip: If you don't need a bunch of amenities and just want clean and comfortable stay here !!

Not a 3 or 4 star hotel but you won't find that here. Leadville has a mediocre choice of hotels/motels. We read reviews and took into consideration friend's past experiences in Leadville and settled on Alps Motel, after all, it was only for one night. We knew there would be nothing special about the place but it was clean and the bed was comfortable enough. The owner's were friendly and the price was right. A screened in walkway separates the parking lot from the rooms, providing shelter from the weather. It is on the major highway thru town though and there is lots of truck noise at night. Room 1 is closest to the highway and according to our friends, got lots of road noise. We were in Room 5, tuck away in the corner and it was quiet.

Room Tip: There are only about 8 rooms in this small motel. Stay away from the ones closest to the highway...

We spent 2 nights at the Alps. The owners, a ma & pop operation, were very gracious & helpful. Due to last minute reservations, we had to change rooms for our second night, which was no problem. The first room was a single very comfortable queen bed. The second room had two queen beds, a bit more worn. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms which were nothing fancy, but sufficient. There was coffee, excellent high-speed wi-fi, micro, frig. There are only 8 rooms in all with a porch that blocks out some of the highway sound. The non-smoking corner room is quieter. Our doggie was welcome which was a big plus. The Alps Motel is easy walking distance to the historic downtown. There is a back entrance to avoid the main road for walks around town.
