Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn at Lost Creek Telluride
Nice, but ...
Based on the reviews that we read, we were quite excited to stay at the Inn at Lost Creek. The room itself did not disappoint nor did the restaurant. However, the service at the hotel was simply unacceptable. On one occasion, our room had not been cleaned when we returned from skiing at 3:00. We called the front desk to report this and asked that we not be disturbed so that we could take a nap. Twenty minutes later, housekeeping woke us up. When I again called the front desk, the clerk informed me that she "had only been there ten minutes and what did I want her to do about it?" This was certainly not the response I was looking for and it was typical during the duration of our stay. Though we had been told that the hotel had transportation to nearby areas, when I asked the staff to pick me up at night after a spa service at the Golden Door Spa, they told me that I should walk or take the bus. On the other hand, the ski valet is wonderful and the bar is intimate and the bartenders were great. Next time, we will probably stay at the Peaks.
Great facility and value. The front desk personnel were great.
I thought this hotel was marvelous. The room was impeccable and very well decorated. The fireplace was great, especially since it was placed to be available in both the living room and bedroom. Everything was so easy to operate. This is the first hotel where I had to leave the room key at the desk and pick it up when returning. It was only one day and the front desk always handed me my key without having to tell them my name. The concierge/bell staff were the friendliest I had every encountered. Very refreshing, compared to many hotels. They made you feel really welcome (not just polite as a job). Great value also. I have paid much more at other hotels with not an inch of the same service that I received here. Ten points out of ten points, by far.

A unique birthday surprise
My husband gave me the most incredible surprise for my birthday. He had everything arranged with the hotel, the Inn at Lost Creek in Telluride Colorado. He even packed my bag. Every detail was taken care of. It started with a bouquet of flowers when I arrived in the lobby, romantic music playing in our room, an in room romantic dinner served with chocolate fondue for dessert, and ending with the two of us trotting to the roof in our hotel robes to soak in the rooftop hot tub with a view of the mountain before we retired and went to bed.
The room was uniquely decorated and different. The soft lights, homey atmosphere, and crackling fireplace sent me into one of the best night's sleep I have ever had. I would love to revisit this hotel.
not what i expected from a 4 star hotel, room was nice. climate control was not functioning right. staff didn't seem particularly interested in fixing the problem.
An absolutely outstanding hotel - From the location to the warm and friendly service. For such a highly rated and what I am sure is a much trafficked hotel, it still maintains a warm "inn" feel and the staff could not be any more friendly or accomodating. The staff brought our rental car to us upon departure and had left a thank-you note and "snack" of water and granola bars in the front seat for our drive back to the airport. The ski valet is also most convenient. We will be staying here again!
My Husband and I stayed at the Inn for our honeymoon. It was superb! We reserved the lowest-priced room, but when we got there they weren't full so they upgraded us! The little suite was perfect. The bed was comfy and the bathroom luxurious. The staff was so nice. This was probably the best place I have ever stayed. I would highly recommend this hotel!
Terrific -- This place saved our vacation!
We moved over to the Inn at Lost Creek after one night at the Wyndam Peaks (which we didn't like at all). The Inn was incredibly accomodating, reasonably priced, and very nice. Each room is different, so it's hard to compare, but the Inn has (1) a fantastic location right next to the ski lifts, (2) a great restaurant, (3) a very cozy feel, (4) really helpful service. This is not a 5-star hotel; it's a little inn that is well-run, comfortable, nicely furnished, and at this point I think the best place to stay in Mountain Village.
We stayed here for two nights. They had a fall special that allowed us to
upgrade to a residential room. This is the best hotel my husband and I ever have stayed in. They have two rooftop hot tubs that you can reserve and have totally privacy. The room was large with a fireplace. The inn is tucked in Mountain Village. Your view is more of town. You can see the mountains but not like some of the other hotels. This hotel is also closest to the gonodola. The staff are unbelievable!! We will return!!!!!!!!!!!
Inn simply the best
Rest assured this Inn is a 5 star property. It is small, however, the rooms are immaculate and beautiful, the service excellent, and the food in the restaurant is top notch. You will not be disappointed with this unique and special Inn.
Inn At Lost Creek - European Style Comfort With all the bells and whistles
We highly recommend The Inn At Lost Creek, Telluride. A small hotel with all suite accomodations. Right on the slopes. Great staff, friendly and helpful in every possible way. Super restaurant on site. Nifty suites with all the goodies including fireplaces. All in all, couldn't ask for a better experience. Reminded us of the best of small hotels and inns in Europe. We believe they are an excellent value in terms of satisfaction received for a reasonable price.

I don't know what Owen & Elise see in this Off-Roading thing! It's hard to keep ones footing when the Jeep is rocking and bouncing, but we did stop for a while of Marmot hunting on the Magie Gulch Trail. I ran all over that hillside and those darn Marmots just jump down a hole. So I didn't catch any, but it was fun. Check out the pics. Now that Randy shared the pictures Pam has said that Marmots look like little bears. So I'm updating my blog. I'm Brown Bear hunting. Watch out ...
... we met up with sweep and basically rode the rest of the way together. Today was a really great ride day; there was a tough, like, 30 mile stretch but on the whole it was pretty great. Gorgeous scenery; I love all the water. I think one of my favorite things about Colorado is the streams. They're everywhere and they're so clear. Get arrived at host in a small mountain town called Ridgeway. Hose shower. Group dinner. Blogging. Talking with Kim. Stretching with Taylor. Night time. ...
... I think the funniest part was the fact that the only people who just ate without using cutlery or plates was the three Aussies, myself included of course. Then it was back into the kitchen to prepare dinner. We were all craving a good roast meal with tons of veggies so that's what we cooked up. We made 2 roast chicken, 2 roast beefs, roast potatoes, onions, carrots, a broccoli and cauliflower bake ...
... luggage except carry on and upon check in I signed up for the 6am shuttle back to Denver Airport. The room was fine; a living area and separate bedroom. This whole debacle was especially annoying since I already had paid for a hotel in Telluride and the delay cost me a half day of skiing too.
The next day I got the shuttle and got to the airport about 6:20am and luckily the security line was not too bad. I wanted to arrive early in case of any other surprises. The ...
... Forest. We stopped overlooking San Cristobal Lake, the largest natural lake in Colorado, then continued on over the continental divide. We picked up the Rio Grande river almost at its beginning and watched it grow from a small creek into a nice size river and ended up in the town of South Fork.
It was a nice leisurely day of sightseeing while driving. It is hard to beat the sights in the Colorado Rockies although we heard that we need to see the Canadian Rockies.
