Loveland, Colorado
Reviewed 24 July 2011

The "full hot breakfast" was boiled eggs, granola cereal, bagels, overdried corn muffins and ham cubes. This is a continental breakfast in the worst sense. The mattress' on the beds was horrible - back pain all night. Obviously the innkeeper is cutting costs to increase his profit margin - to the detriment of the quality and service of the inn.

One star is both insulting and humiliating for a owner operated business where tremendous amounts of time are spent at the business. Not sure how these people missed the hot breakfast two times. They failed to mention the "hot" pancakes, "hot" egg casserole, fresh fruit and local organic bread. Their room was 149.00, a good value for a resort town...

Every other hotel/inn has check in at 3pm & check out at noon. Except Elk Mountain Lodge where you check in at 3pm & must check out at 10:30am. It's not posted on the back of the room door, like every other hotel & no one mentions it......until you're late checking out. The words came out sounding understanding but the...

11 years in business and never had a complaint about our check-out time. Check-out time is posted on our confirmation letter that most people read. Unfortunately this guest was also confused about our staff. The lady she spoke to was our housekeeper, not front desk staff. She has worked here for 8 years and had nothing but compliments.

Breakfasts were great and everyone friendly and very helpful. They really know the area, trails, things to do, restaurants and help you find just what you want. Rooms were comfortable and they have everything you need for a wonderful stay.

We arrived to a very warm greeting from Brian who was working at the front desk. The Lodge wasn't overly busy while we were there, so Brian asked if we wanted to look at other rooms and pick the one we liked best. We chose our originally assigned room (#17) which is on the top floor with a balcony and...

Thanks of the great review but you have described a different lodge. We are located in downtown Crested Butte, CO. Not Chaco NM. We are in town, not out in the woods. Come check it out.

Had a great week’s stay at the charming Elk Mountain Lodge in CB. Cozy, relaxed atmosphere with good facilities, comfortable bed, nice hot tub, off street parking, etc. Friendly, helpful staff, including the owner Mike, with good recommendations for restaurants, etc. Great location about a block from Elk Street and the ski bus shuttle stop. Good breakfast, great bread, jams...

I have been to the Elk Mountain Lodge several times over the last 10 years and it never fails to impress, summer or winter. It's close to the shuttle in the winter, for an easy free trip up to skiing and in the summer, you can bike right from the door to many of CB's great mountain biking trails. Throw...

Mike Nolan and his crew offer the warmest of stays in a classic old Colorado Hotel that was one a mining boarding house. It is not a five star hotel in NYC, but an extremely warm and inviting refuge, complete with grand piano, a great bar, and the best breakfast in the Elk Mountains
