“Telluride Blues and Brews”
Well it was in an ideal location for walking to all of the music venues it had no parking and we had to park 5 blocks away from the unit. Also there was really no breakfast to speak of, a hard boiled egg and a yogurt. Also in the middle of the night the carbon dioxide monitor went to chirping and when I called there was no response and I had to remove the batteries to get some sleep
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of Manitou Lodge #1. It is the ideal location for the summer music festivals in town park. During the bigger festivals, parking can be an issue anyplace you stay in town. Manitou Lodge guests are provided with on street parking permits. As of the breakfast, as of December 2015, we have returned to our hosted breakfast that includes cereal, bagels, juice, yogurt and hard boiled eggs.
“Not for older people”
For someone who is low on energy and easily confused( ie: older first time visitors) this place was far from ideal. Not enough information given initially about where to go to check in was a big inconvenience, parking was absolututly atrocious.
Response from the manager Thank you for your comments on your recent stay at the Manitou Lodge. When booking through one of our travel partners, the arrival directions can be confusing. Guest check in at our Main Street location at 324 W Colorado Ave, which is on the way to the lodge. From there an on street parking pass is issued and guest can park directly across the bridge from the condo.
“Cozy room set in a great location.”
Our stay here was really nice. The community kitchen provided fresh coffee and a breakfast selection every morning. For those who want to cook a meal, all tools are provided for stovetop and oven meals. You are sharing this space with others so you may have to wait your turn. We did not cook so it was never an issue for us. The manager was quick to respond to our request for a humidifier. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. They have an old wooden hot tub that sits in a closed room with an open roof. It was nice after a day of skiing. As for location, it was great! Our car never left the parking spot after we unloaded the first day. The gondola is a block away and main street is a two minute walk. I definitely recommend this inn.
Response from the manager So happy you enjoyed your stay with us at the Manitou Lodge. We do look forward to your return visit.
“Close to lift, gondola and town”
I statyed here about 5 years ago, hence my return. It's not luxurious but well appointed. Now included are robes which are nice for a trip to the hot tub. The kitchen across the hall is a nice touch along with continental breakfast. We made breakfast two of our 4 mornings. Room 1 had a memory foam bed. The building is aging and the bathroom updates are falling apart. The glass shelf above the sink has such a slant on it, you can't place something on it and have it stay. The towel bar was loose too. It would be nice if the garbage was taken out during one's stay and towels were refreshed but again, for the price, what can one expect. Overall it is a good value and we would stay there again.
Response from the manager So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Manitou Lodge! We look forward to your return visit. Your maintenance issues were a easy fix and thank you for pointing this out.
I stayed at the Manitou Lodge #1 for a week this past February. For the price, it cannot be beat. The location is the best in Telluride. A 2-3 minute walk to the Gondola and a 2-3 minute walk to the center of downtown, yet still secluded with a rustic feel. The Manitou is nothing fancy, but matches the feel of Telluride perfectly. The room was just as advertised. Big enough. Clean. Breakfast was fine. I would definitely recommend the Manitou, and I plan on staying here on return trips to Telluride.
Response from the manager Yes, thank you so much for your enthusiastic review! We loved having you as a guest and look forward to your return stay.
“Needs to upgrade Breakfast”
The breakfast at the Manitou has gone down hill. They used to have boiled eggs and yoghurt, but now there is no protein available. They have only bagels, English muffins, toast, cereals, oatmeal, OJ, Coffee. Please upgrade the breakfast, everything else about the Manitou is great.
Response from the manager Charlie, Thank you for your suggestion on our continental breakfast. We have gone back to serving eggs and yogurt again. Come back and see us soon!
“Love this place by the River”
I love the small mountain town of Telluride and usually visit in the summer but this was my first late fall with snow trip. As usual Telluride itself is my favorite little town in Colorado although very expensive now than it use to be. Only a few reasonable price places left in this town and I know this is one of them because I've stayed here a few times in past years and it has still kept it's quality up. I definitely recommend this place in Telluride.
Response from the manager Thank you for choosing Manitou Lodge as your favorite place to stay in Telluride. Please come back and see us again real soon
Was here for the night, nice quiet and rooms and a hot hot tub.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Manitou Lodge in Telluride with others.
The lodge was a good place to stay for one night. However, when I put up the wooden blinds the windows were so dirty that they were hard to see out of. There was a huge spider web in the corner of the window complete with a dead bug in it. Other than that, it is a decent place for the price. One other thing - my husband left his cell phone charger. The management company wanted us to send them $20 plus postage to send it back - they said they want to discourage people from leaving things. We did not do it on purpose - this did not seem very customer friendly. Pedro at the lodge was great.
Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your experience in Telluride at the Manitou Lodge. Regarding the shipping fee, we spend many hours each week looking for lost items, packaging them , and taking them to the post office. We cannot do that for free.
“Lovely central location by river”
The Manitou rooms overlook the river running through Telluride and continental breakfast is available with outdoor seating on a deck next to the water. The lodge is comfortable although not luxurious, I only wish they would abandon the foam pillows for softer feather fill...the bed was firm and comfortable. The innkeeper, Heather, was terrific. She allowed us an early check in and was most helpful with minor arrangements and information for our brief stay. We would love to return for longer, I imagine this would be a very cozy after ski lodge if they repair the fireplace in the lounge area and can have fires. We stayed on the ground level floor, it might be wise to advise folks on floors 2 and 3 that the floors creak and make noise for guests underneath them. Or, advise guests if they are light sleepers to choose upstairs rooms.
Response from the manager Thank you for your kind words. Your review will be very helpful to others. Come back whenever you can.
