Reasonable cost for this area, it is an older property with tiny bathroom but the room was clean with fridge. We like the balcony room with mountain views... Worth a bit extra money.
Room had fridge but no coffee maker. Coffee offered in lobby which was in a separate building from where we stayed. No complimentary breakfast, which would be nice.
It's value & setting (& room with a view) will give this a 4 star rating from me.

It was cold and refreshing and spotting some elk grazing by the lake was a great way to discovery RMNP. It was nice, but bloody cold, the kind of cold that …
... we were not “currently” in a tornado warning area, and actually sat through a baseball game that went on with a national-news scale thunderstorm crashing down all around us, dumping 2” of rain on the city in an hour. Turned out there was massive flash flooding in Denver, and the tornado was seen in Aurora, not all that far from Coors field. Read all about it here. Don’t tell me Thelma and Louise don’t ...
... to find a young couple arguing in the house across the street. The crazy girlfriend was screaming at her boyfriend, Ben. She was asking why he had text Juliana back. He couldn’t provide a suitable reason so an argument ensued. She was screaming so loud that the neighbourhood dogs howled in unison. The police were eventually called and everyone quietened down. It was the perfect end to our stay in university town, ...
