we were disappointed by accommodations were not what we expected. We were very disappointed. We will never go there again. And, they promoted the place as a bed and breakfast. We found out upon arrival that MAYBE they would provide something for breakfast. So bagels and bananas is what we got. WOW. Expensive for so little.
Response from the manager I am sorry to hear that you received some misinformation about the breakfast at the Manitou Lodge. Manitou Lodge is not a bed and breakfast, but we do offer a complimentary light breakfast to our guests which includes bagels, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee during our summer and winter seasons. I am sorry that these accommodations did not meet your needs.
“Don't stay here, management has changed for the worse!”
This used to be my favorite place to stay in Telluride and if you've stayed here in the past you'll know what I mean.... quiet, convenient, and nice by the creek! BUT the management has changed and we had a HORRIBLE stay! Over a 6 day period our trash was not emptied EVER, breakfast was served in paper bags and ranged from tolerable to down right terrible. One day our bags had a banana, a small carton of milk, and a pat of jelly. I don't know if we were supposed to put the jelly on our banana or spoon it right onto our tongues but there was no bread! If you sleep in late you're in luck because coffee & bags were rarely ready by 8am.
Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback on your stay at the Manitou Lodge. We have been trying an experiment this summer with the Get Movin' Breakfast. As a coffee drinker, I agree that 8am is too long to wait for some to have coffee in the morning. We will be installing individual coffeemakers in each room for early risers. It certainly sounds like you were short changed on breakfast as well. And I apologize that your breakfast was not complete. We will do our best to make sure that each guest receives a full, continental breakfast.
“Pleasant and good value experience.”
Nice accommodations for the money. All staff personnel were courteous and helpful. The kitchen provisions were a helpful surprise, and useful for our stay. Would plan future lodging with same.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of the Manitou Lodge. It sounds like it was the perfect fit for your trip. We forward to seeing you on your next Telluride adventure!
“Relaxing and comfortable”
We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Manitou and stayed in two large rooms with a king bed,the # 4. The mattress was a great surprise as it was a tempurpedic and in the other room a single with a trundle. Having two full baths with convenient access to the hot tub and the dining area/lounge all on the first floor was a real plus for all of us. The rooms are cleaned every 3 days or so, which was fine, as we can make our own beds. If we needed anything the staff was responsive and very accommodating. The only recommendations I would make are to vary the continental breakfast,(we stayed 8 days), and pave the walk from the street to the bridge. All the guests were congenial and personable which only enhanced the fine experience. If stairs are an issue at 9000 feet, opt for a first floor room. Our son works in Telluride and had said this was a good place to stay, we concur.
Response from the manager Paul, thank you for your great review of Manitou Lodge. We enjoyed having you! As your son lives here I am guessing you will be back! See you then.
“The Manitou is a great place to stay”
Service from staff for booking and answering questions was excellent. The Manitou as a whole is a wonderful lodging experience. The location can't be beat in Telluride. The morning breakfast was good, not fancy cooking, but food items that got one going in the morning. My unit was missing some closet items found in other units, e.g. bathrobe, fan, suitcase support, iron and ironing board (although I didn't need the iron etc. Staff said they'll replenish missing items, and I believe they will. All in all, a delightful stay.
Response from the manager We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Telluride at the Manitou Lodge. Come back whenever you can.
“We will always return to the Manitou Lodge!”
Heather, Bruce and Pedro are brilliant hosts and the Lodge is incredibly comfortable. We had such a lovely time there that we extended our stay. We could not have been happier with our stay except that check-in is a little tricky as you have to go to an alternate location a few blocks away to check-in but wasn't a big deal as long as you are aware of it beforehand. We plan on returning many, many times.
Response from the manager We thank you for your review. Indeed, the Manitou is unstaffed except in the mornings for our breakfast service from 7-10 am and check in is 2 blocks prior to reaching the Manitou at the Aspen Street Inn which we also manage. This is coming in from the only way into town on a major highway. We are at the Aspen Street Inn in the mornings and afternoons with a break from 12-3pm to get groceries and errands and catch up on paperwork and attend company meetings. We attempt as much as possible to send prearrival emails with this pertinent information or make prearrival calls, but if we do not have that information sometimes we aren't able to reach our guests prior to their arrival. Sincerely, Heather White Manager
This room was a good value, plenty of room for our family and only a short walk to the gondola and many services in town. The only thing that was missing was a boot/glove dryer. I would also say that the mattress was "Extra Firm" as in rock hard, would have preferred a softer mattress.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review the Manitou Lodge. Some guests find the tempurpedic mattresses a little too firm. Not all the rooms have them, so if you want to return we can certainly talk to you about the non-TP units available. Sincerely, Heather White Manitou Lodge, Telluride, CO
We loved this place! Just happened to hit on a time when all the guests were totally social and we sort of formed an apres ski family. Our room was wonderful. Old, but full of interesting perks and very large for just my husband and me. So close to town also and the gondola, so no need really to have our car, even though we drove there from Calif. Continental breakfast was so so, but one could cook anything they wanted in the well appointed kitchen. Will definitely come back.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. We appreciate it and hope you can return anytime. Sincerely, Heather White Manager Manitou Lodge Telluride, CO
“Perfect lodging for Telluride”
What a great little lodge -- and unit #4 was perfect for us as a couple and an unrelated friend. Comfortable lounge, nice breakfast, great hosts who were so accommodating. Also great to have the parking pass. It is really ski in/ski out with the easy access to the gondola and lift, plus just a couple blocks into the heart of downtown Telluride. Perfect!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to make a review for Manitou #4. We appreciate it and hope you can return this summer. Sincerely, Heather White Manager Manitou Lodge Telluride, CO
Our stay at the Manitou Lodge was great and I highly recommend it! We were very comfortable there. Our rooms were large and cozy. The bed was really comfortable. Although we had a small kitchen, we had use of the fully equipped kitchen in the main area. Each day we were provided a full breakfast. Our hosts (Bruce & Heather White) were very nice and helpful. I was there to do research and they graciously offered some extra resources that I wasn't aware of. I'd like to say we were extremely pleased with our stay!
Response from the manager Thank you for your time to review the Manitou. We sure enjoyed having you during a rather quiet time at the Inn. We like to call it a "peaceful" time before the big crush. Please do come back anytime and we will be glad to accommodate you if you are doing research again. Sincerely, Heather White Manitou Lodge Innkeeper
