No parking was available; closest free parking lot was half mile away; very difficult to find in the dark -- you have to park your car, walk over a bridge and then you will find the place; huge nasty stains were on the carpet; bathroom was so small that we could hardly move around in it; no screens on the windows; very old and smelt nasty.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to write this review of your stay. It certainly does not sound like your stay was up to our usual standards. We have replaced the carpet since your stay. Our guests are also given on street parking permits with parking available across the pedestrian bridge from the lodge. Dour our busier festivals, it can be difficult to find a spot. We apologize for the inconvenience.
“Ok, great location but the place needs better management”
Room was initially clean and the location is excellent. Breakfasts are very sketchy - very lean, ran out of bananas every day, very low on all supplies. The rooms should be cleaned every day even if the rates have to go up a little - every four days is not sufficient. The place is getting tired and need some attention to detail.
Response from the manager Hi Jim, The owner of Manitou Lodge will be doing some interior and exterior improvements this spring so on your next stay you will notice the difference. The Lodge serves a continental breakfast only, and we make every effort to be well stocked for our guests. We do apologize for any shortages that occurred. We do have a fully stocked kitchen so that our guests can bring in their own groceries and cook for themselves whether it be lunches or dinners. A huge plus to have in Telluride. Thank you for your review.
There is no noise abadement in the building. The people upstaris were not that noisy but stayed up past 1 am and we had a terrible night's sleep. Bruce White (Innkeeper) saved the stay for us by providing other accomodations.
Response from the manager The Manitou Lodge was built in 1975, not long after the Telluride ski area opened in 1972. Thankfully, construction practices have changed since then. The Manitou Lodge has retained the rustic 1970's ski lodge atmosphere. If you are looking for more modern lodging in Telluride, we do have many other properties to choose from. We are glad the manager was able to move you to a different property.
“Great location and very home-like”
The Manitou is like the ski lodge you borrow from your neighbors. Not luxury or corporate, it feels like regular people return there year after year because it is comfortable, homey, and perfectly located. You are steps from the free gondola and downtown Telluride's shops, restaurants and bike path. Stay here and you won't need a car (but a parking pass does come with the room). Start your day in the living room breakfasting with others heading out to adventure and end your day with a soak in the cedar hot tub at the edge of the stream. Feels like home.
Response from the manager Your review is a great description of the Manitou Lodge experience. Guests do return year after year because they like the homey atmosphere and the incredible location.
“Good choice for lodging”
Paperwork, keys and parking permit were ready when we arrived. Good off-season pricing in September. Single room w/bath on first floor was clean and nicely appointed. Original pictures and description of accommodations lead us to believe it was larger, but room was adequate. Great location.
Response from the manager We are happy you enjoyed your stay at the Manitou Lodge. Affordable, clean, and family friendly are the goals of Manitou Lodge. The location beside the river and in the heart of town are pretty nice, too.
“Really nice place with great location”
The beds were the best...very comfortable. Good location, right on the river. Nice breakfast area and food. The only issue might be the parking, but there isn't much else you can do considering the location I would definitely stay there again.
Response from the manager Many of the rooms at the Manitou Lodge have Tempurpedic mattresses, which many people like. I am glad you enjoyed it. We purchase one parking permit for each room at the Manitou Lodge which allows guests to park on the street in a several block area around the Manitou Lodge. Still, during busy festivals, parking isn't always easy.
“Just what I was looking for”
Perfect spot- everyone was nice. Price was reasonable For Telluride
Response from the manager We appreciate your review. Thanks, and come again.
“My family loved it!”
We stayed only a couple of nights and this room was perfect. It had queen size Tempurpedic beds, which made for a good nights rest. The continental breakfast was great for the kids. Really close to the gondola and ski tickets & equipment. It is right on the river and I would love to stay here during the summer and would definitely stay here again!
Response from the manager We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at this unique little Lodge. We will look forward to seeing you this summer! Sincerely, Heather White Manager Manitou Lodge Telluride, CO
“Another fun trip!”
I take lots of trips to Telluride and love it every time!
Response from the manager We love Telluride, too and we will try to keep Manitou perfect so you can keep loving the whole experience. Thanks for taking time to review. Heather White Manager Manitou Lodge, Telluride, CO
“Convenient and easy.”
The room that we stayed in at the Manitou (B&B; 2) looked exactly like the photos on the internet. After checking in at the aspen St. Inn we had a bit of trouble finding a parking spot, but parked as close as we could. Your parking pass is in the room and covers the few streets near the B&B.; The room was just what we needed for the night. The kitchen/common area was just across the hall, which was nice. A small river runs next to the property. I should have brought my fly rod as it looked like it had some nice holding water. The river path takes you right up to Town Park, which was very convenient as we were there to see a concert. Breakfast was super basic. Baked in Telluride, a brew pub, and a liquor store were all located within a block or two. I would defiantly recommend this B&B; to anyone who enjoys a laid back, basic atmosphere.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and are pleased that you found Manitou enjoyable. We appreciated that you stayed with us and hope you can come back anytime. Sincerely, Heather White Manager Manitou Lodge Telluride, CO
