Great stay. We had Mountain view king room and satisfied with everything. It was a little bit noisy during the day due construction outside and in the hotel. Star is friendly and helpful. Definitely will come back again.

Loved our stay! Second time staying here, love the cabin vibes the rooms give off. Very comfy beds. LOVE the Rocky Mountain soap co products that are available in the shower/bath. Great breakfast buffet that’s included. Good location in town, writhing walking to all restaurants, cafes, and shops. Had mountain views from our room. Would stay here again no doubt!! Only downside is limited parking. Had to find parking on the street one night because the small lots underground and at the back of the building we’re full. Also parking underground is 6” clearance so it is tight.
