Many thanks for sharing your experience and hope you can come back this summer.
Ok I guess, no housekeeping
Left on 09/25/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | BluesandBrews
Very spacious, but run down. Housekeeping did not come a single time the 4 nights we stayed even though we had a sign on the door requesting them. It is Telluride so I guess you get what you pay for... Read more

We are sorry you found it so and had you let us know in the 4 days you were there, we could have addressed your concerns then. The prearrival email that we sent you explained our housekeeping policy very clearly and when you checked in you signed a form that explained our housekeeping policy again. We do a midweek clean for every 5 nights our guests stay, however, your comfort is important to us and we explain upon check in that if you need anything to tell us and we will get it done. We also make it clear that if you desire housekeeping it is available for a nominal fee.

College Dorm feel at Mountainside Inn
Left on 07/28/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Lake Mary Gator
We stayed at Mountainside Inn in mid July 2013 for one night. The location is good, close to the tram station and next to the creek and walking trail. Most of the parking for the Inn is in the public parking lot behind the Inn.
The office was frequently closed even though the sign said it was regular hours. The buildings feel like a college dorm and are dated. A lot of the guests were young people looking for the cheapest place to stay. The room was very basic with no aC but they do give you a fan.
If you plan to spend some time relaxing in a nice room this is not the place. The entire town is very over priced. Consider staying in Montrose and doing a day trip. Read more

Thank you for your review of the Mountainside Inn. We are so glad you were satisfied with the location as it is in walking distance to the downtown area and gondola station. The property is older, but the most affordable lodging in town. Most places in town do not have air conditioning because being at a higher elevation, it does not get unbearably hot. In fact it is very cool in the evenings even still in the summertime. The office is not open 24 hours, and Mountainside Inn in particular is open now from 8:30am-7pm till 7/31/2013 and then the hours will switch to 8am-9pm from that point on. Also take into account the office is now closed from 1pm-2pm for a lunch break. We do hope that you stay with us again in the future.
Close but not updates

Room was only a 2 minute walk to the chair but was something out of the 60's. Needs to be updated. Read more

Like the location
Left on 02/27/2012 for a stay in September 2011 | TM
I liked the location. The hotel was clean however a remodel will do it good. It would be nice if there was 24-hour front desk/ concierge service. Read more
Response from Telluride Alpine Lodging - 03/26/2012
We are glad you enjoyed the location. We are aware we are an older property; however we remain the most affordable accomodations in Telluride. And one way we can keep the prices down is with limited front desk service. We appreciate your feedback. Hope to see you again soon!

I did not like the fact that you could not reach the front desk in the evening and no one was available to offer recommendations for resturants etc. I did not like the rfact that I was left only one small bottle of shampoo for three nights - and that I only had coffee for one morning. Otherwise the room was nice, clean comfortable etc. Read more

Thank you for submitting your feedback. The Mountainside Inn only offers housekeeping on stays that are 5+ nights as it is a new environmental policy recently placed into effect. Although, if you are ever in need of any ammenities or assistance of any kind the front desk will be more than happy to help. If it is outside the hours of operation there is a night phone operator to aid with more urgent needs. Again, thank you for taking the time to write a review. All feedback is greatly appreciated.
Affordable lodging in telluride
Left on 10/13/2010 for a stay in October 2010 | sanwer
We stayed in a room with a Queen and a twin bed with a kitchennete. The accomdation was clean, however, the rooms and amenities need updating. Construction next door was still ongoing in October of 2010. Read more
Response from Telluride Alpine Lodging - 10/14/2010
The construction next door is nearly complete. So on your next visit to Telluride and the Mountainside Inn all will be in order.
Mountainside Inn is still the most affordable and most convienent location in town.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return visit.

Great location , most reasonable room in town.

Nice, clean and spacious room. Even though it overlooked the parking lot there was a great view down the canyon and it was remarkably quiet. Read more

Great Last minute Option
Left on 09/24/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | UmPhreak
Was planning on camping in Telluride, but plans changed as soon as we got into town and saw the weather. Telluride Alpine Lodging was very helpful in finding us an affordable room last minute, even though it was Blues & Brews weekend and there were almost no rooms available in the whole town. Room was very clean, and accomidations fit the price. Walking distance to the gondola, which was nice. Overall a great expierience. Will definately use this as an option in the future. Read more

not worth it
not worth the money
Left on 07/22/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | not worth it
Hotel style rooms. Nice bathroom, that's about all that was nice. Stuffy room with VERY SMALL window. At least they gave us a fan. Got discounted room b/c of construction site that I was told would not be operating while we were there. We rolled in to loud jackhammering. They had no explaination and would not give me another room for the same price. I still got another room but had to pay an extra $30. They told us it was clean and we could go on up...totally not cleaned. We ended up waiting 45 minutes for it to be cleaned. Parking was ridiculous. Front desk snooty. Wish I would have just forked out $250 for a place that didn't give me a headache. Cheapest place in telluride, but not worth it.
