6/10 Good

Unique Hotel
There was something about this hotel that reminded me of a bed and breakfast - maybe is was the breakfast that was served the following morning. Our room was on the second floor and very nice, but you could occasionally hear people upstairs or from the room next door. The restaurant that is attached to the hotel was excellent and the chef was the hotel owner.

Place to stay near my mountain climbing trail.
The Hotel was okay. A nice rustic place with a very good breakfast-no complaints there. The room I was given was much too small for a queen size bed, it was better suited for a twin size bed. I decided to stick it out a stay in the room even though I was offered a larger room for a few more dollars a night. I would probably come back but request a larger room and not one right next to the restaurant if possible, it was a bit noisy.

The hotel needs a little updating! The meal made up for it and so did the amazing hot breakfast. Very sweet women in the morning setting it up. Would come back for the meals!

2/10 Poor

Worst ever
My wife and I travel a lot and rarely have seen such a bad hotel. The room was barely big enough to have a queen bed in. The bathroom must have been renovated in the 1920s. Seriously, it is the worst hotel I have ever been to. We paid for two nights but only stayed for one and was happy to forfeit the second night rate, just to get out of there. We even tried to get another hotel in Cortez or Dolores the first night, and forfeit both nights, but couldn't find one online. It was that bad.

8/10 Very Good

Unique old hotel in beautiful setting
The old building has very nice and interesting public space. The room we stayed in was small, but clean with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was outstanding and we heard the dinner at attached restaurant is also excellent.

old, historical, rustic
No ac, but no need at night. Radiator heat not turned on. Quiet environment. Town had one gas station, three liquor stores and two bars. Only food in town was the dining room at the hotel, and a fairly average bar-b -q joint. Food at hotel was excellent and scenery war great.
