My husband and I went here for New Years Eve, we paid more for the night, however they didn't have anything planed. It is clean and the staff is friendly but the hotel is a bit creepy. The hallways are dark, the walls are concrete and the patio is a walk way-no privacy at all. We went for the hot...

We had a great time. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Restaurant and bar were great. Shuttle to the slope was excellent. Right up to the door!! Snowed a lot while we were there and highway was well maintained for travel. We will be back.

We had a wonderful time at Monarch Lodge and Monarch Ski Resort. Carolyn, Foster, and Keith were kind, helpful, and courteous to our group. They did their best to make sure all of our needs were met as a large group. If you are looking to plan a retreat for a large group with kids of all ages Monarch Lodge...

We just returned from a church group ski retreat where we stayed at Monarch. This was a very busy time for the staff but we had a great experience. Foster, Keith and Carolyn made sure our group was taken care of nicely. This is our family's second stay and it is obvious that the owners are working hard to continue...

We took our family to Monarch for a post Christmas vacation and skiing adventure. We chose Monarch Lodge due to the proximity to the mountain. Given we spent our days skiing, we really enjoyed have a full service restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The food was great and the service was better. The view from the dining room is amazing....

When i went the 1 st time a few years ago it had min kitchens which made it very convenient, as it is a ways to town ( especially in bad weather) The new remodel removed them. Which made it more expensive and more inconvenient for this years trip.

The forecast called for heavy snow so we opted to stay as close to the mountain as possible. We enjoyed watching the snow fall from our private hot tub, after having a nice dip in the pleasantly heated pool. If anyone thinks this place is dated that's because it is, but it's charming! The downstairs workout area and ping pong...

Although this mountain lodge was not as fancy as some of the places we have stayed, for a summer weekend getaway it was perfect. Keep in mind this is a snow ski lodge and is a great place to stay during snow ski season. If you are looking for a nice quiet get away into the mountains where there is...

Tired from our drive across Colorado from Utah, we were happy to have a warm bed at end of day. Location is remote and we were very low on drinks and food. Plainly said, except for Monarch Ski, the Monarch Lodge is the only other business in town. But no worries with their staff, Marcus and Stella. Stella checked us...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Monarch Mountain Lodge is in the heart of the Rockies and surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. Re-opened in Feb. 2015 Under new ownership, the guest rooms have been repainted, re-carpeted, and refurnished for a more modern feel. We've also put brand new tile in our lobby and restaurant, and fresh carpet in common areas. We are just 4 miles from the Monarch Mountain Ski Area, and given our unique location, the possibilities in terms of outdoor activities are virtually endless. ... more   less
