On a recent road trip we stayed in various different types of motel to make things interesting. The Trail Riders was quirky & we liked it for that. We needed advice because of the recent storms in Colorado & the owner was very helpful. A nice restaurant was suggested a block or two away, wish I could remember its name...

Glad you had a good stay! The floods in Colorado did detour a lot of people during their travels. I must be honest though, it also detoured the train. We haven't had a train go through Granby since I think it was September 13th. No matter where you go in Grand County you will hear the trains. Some people love...

We stayed here based on a Trip Advisor recommendation. Not so good! It was a pretty place, and the owners were very nice, but trains came through blowing their whistles at 9:15 PM, 2:50 AM, 5:10 AM & 6:05 AM. Not a restful night! The room was small. There was no bathtub, only a Home Depot plastic shower stall. With...

Seems well looked after. Plants outside are always a good sign. Perhaps the breakfast could have been a little more varied but it did the job. Interesting room - a little small, but nice and clean. Much better value than the poorer motels at Grand Lake. It's in a real town with a local feel and a nice bar a...

After reading other recent reviews it is hard to add to the positive comments. We reserved by phone a room for a day we needed to be in Granby. The outside appearance was dandy and the room itself was as neat and clean as we could have expected. Judging from the vintage of the interior, we were pleased to see...

We are so glad you weren't disappointed at The Trail Riders. Thank you so much for staying with us and for writing such a kind review.

Oh my gosh, what a great place! LOVE the pink neon! LOVE the petunias everywhere! Was suprised to see how big the room was, plenty of space to spread out all our stuff. Super comfy bed, great water pressure in shower, plenty of nice thick towels. And reliable highspeed WIFI, which, as any road tripper knows, is pretty much a...

This is a classic roadside motel,we are on a road trip and try to find Non- chain places to stay. Unfortunately so many are rundown and dirty. Not here , rooms are cute,clean and comfortable, staff friendly and nice little breakfast provided too. Would stay again if passing that way again.

Needing to have a computer surgery done in Boulder, it was decided that it'd be a good idea to make the run over Trail Ridge Rd, through Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park, which was lovely, as always. But no ptarmigans this time. I digress. My wife and I may not be your average travelers. Pretty much, our needs are.. a place...

We felt lucky to have booked a room at this motel. It was clean, comfortable, and had a good location. We enjoyed the breakfast offered the next morning. We, also, enjoyed being in a location that offered us many more beautiful places nearby to see.

I have waited a few weeks to write this review because the people who run it are SO nice that I really don't want to say anything negative.
