The best hotel in Rico . . . Of course it is the ONLY hotel in Rico. My room was tiny- barely large enough for the queen size bed. I'm not really hard to please (I frequent Motel 6's)- but this room was not worth the $80 I paid for it. The bathroom looked like it belonged in an RV-...

On hotels.com the rate for a room with 2 queen beds was the same for 2 adults as it was for 2 adults plus 1 child. Priceline also had same rate for same room, but could not select number of people. Booked room through Priceline because of lower booking fees. When we arrived, surly owner demanded additional $25 for our...

We've stayed here for two nights and the moment we arrived at the hotel, i was dumbstrucked by the appearance of the hotel. The frontage is not well trimmed with overgrown trees and bushes. I thought the hotel is already closed actually. We entered at the side door and saw this closed,unattended reception area, I thought that we've been riffed...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights to explore the area around Telluride. We enjoy unusual, off-the-beaten-path experiences, and the Rico Hotel was exactly that. This is definitely not a place to stay if you are looking for a fancy, chain-hotel type place - it is quirky, unique and homey. The staff were very friendly and...

My husband and I along with our 1 year old stayed here and it was great. Great little town with really amazing food. We were 1 of 2 couple to stay the night and woke to an amazing home cooked breakfast. Worth the price of the room just for the breakfast. Cant wait to stay again

Three of us just spent a great get-away weekend at the Rico Hotel, Feb 10-12, 2012. We booked the third floor suite and it met our needs perfectly, to the quality of the beds, the complete kitchen, large bathroom and great views. And the Argentina Grill serves unbelievably good food and service, in a rustic, charming setting. With the same...

We travel every year to the USA from the UK staying at inexpensive motels/hotels and usually quite satisfied.The only comparison with the Rico is the inexpensive bit.An exceptional hotel and such a relaxing place to stay.

We traveled to Rico in June 2011 and because of the Rico Hotel, we are making plans to return in a few months. My husband found the Rico Hotel while looking for places to stay close to Telluride. We had the third floor apartment that had a bedroom, living room/kitchen, and bathroom. It was plenty of space and a gorgeous...

Do not be put off by the rather unkempt appearance of the outside space of this hotel; the proprietor and his staff are far too busy making the hotel comfortable and preparing the most amazing food for their guests to be worrying about the weeds and the overgrown grass outside!! Our room was a little out of the ordinary in...
