We ate at the restaurant in January on one of our trips. The food was amazing! We recently went there in our trip to Breckinridge and learned that the previous owners had left. The food now is by far the worst we have ever had. We decided to stay the night in this old hotel and let me tell you...

Waited forever for a burger and chicken sandwich. The staff kept apologizing and talking about how they were just so "slammed" with literally 4 tables in the entire place. Once the food did arrive it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good enough to make up for the ridiculous wait.

We booked this location when looking for something a little more reasonable on the pocketbook than Breckenridge. It was a very easy location to get to and there was plenty of parking. When we arrived we had to call (along with another couple) for the front desk as he was across the hotel when we all arrived. It took approximately...

Very historic and old fashioned hotel that is very friendly. Rooms are a bit small but the bed was comfortable and the buffet breakfast was wonderful. They also have a cozy fireplace area to just hang out. Great place for a quiet getaway.

This creaky old gem is one-of-a-kind. It's rusticity mixed with shabby Victorian gentility. It's a step back in time----you'd never know where you were if someone blindfolded you and asked where you were. This is the home of South Park--yes,THAT South Park! The South Park section of FairPlay is right down the street and a large sign says...WELCOME TO SOUTH...

This old building features wonderful rooms with high ceilings. The wood floors creak but the beds are very comfortable. It is like a bed and breakfast without the breakfast. As it turned out, finding breakfast in this small town was a bit of a problem. We did find one place open. I thought the rates were really good also. We...

The staff is friendly, the hotel experience was okay. As indicated, it's historic but felt the upkeep of the rooms could have been better, i.e., poorly painted over wallpaper. However, the room was very clean. There are only sheers for window covers so I had to wear an eye mask. Location was walking distance to the place I visited so...

Clean and comfortable. Just a little bit of street noise. We had a king sized bed and it took up most of the room in the room. Breakfast was not included but there was tea and coffee available all day.

We had a trial with the dogs held in Fairplay & this hotel is dog friendly. I found the stay very pleasant & comfortable for both of us It was a great place to stay. There is food right next door that is excellent.

Driving to Crested Butte last Friday, we decided it was too late to drive and so we stopped in Fairplay. John, the night manager was super friendly and helpful in getting us checked in in and situated at 11pm. I loved everything about the hotel from the hot tea at night, to the extremely comfortable mattress, the charm of squeaky...
