We stayed at the Angler Inn with other members of our family for my Nephews Wedding. Our room was very comfortable. The Inn is well maintained and the Staff was wonderful! The breakfast was family buffet and the coffee was stellar! It is about 15 miles from Telluride and it is a very scenic ride. Great time, great value!

Everything was homey and well done. The Bartender in the restaurant was a wealth of information. Friendly staff and it felt like home..... but better! Very laid back but well done. Food in the restaurant was amazing. Highly recommend.

Nice hotel, check in staff was very nice, morning staff was ok. Good value for the location, however there weren't any screens in all the windows and without AC it made it hard to cool the room at night. There were ants and centipedes in the bathroom of our first floor room. The bed however was very comfortable, and breakfast...

Our room was small but very clean and inviting. The location is very convenient to Telluride and the lodge is very attractive and welcoming. The reason for my average review is the absentee ownership is apparent to anyone. Our mattress wasn't very comfortable and unfortunately the bed itself squeaked loudly every time we sat on it, laid on it, or...

This little lodge was a good choice for our weekend stay in Telluride. First of all, why we chose this place: free breakfast, free parking and the lowest pet rate in all of Telluride. Every other place in Telluride prepare to pay for valet parking, breakfast and ridiculous pet fees and taxes. And the prices just for the hotel couldn't...

I had to arrive very late and my key was waiting for me. I was so nervous they would forget but the key along with a note told me exactly how to get in and the bed,when I finally put my head on the pillow, was quite literally heaven on earth!

The location was remote, yet close to towns. We enjoyed the private outdoors area and it was quiet, except for the traffic. The cleaning service was very nice and the crew was friendly. The evening dining was amazing. The continental breakfast was normal, however, I was led to believe by the web page that it was much more. They made...

The service staff were all wonderful. They were attentive to every request. We were greeted with an offer of iced tea which was quite a nice touch. I am glad we had the Ball jars the iced tea was served in because there were no glasses of any kind in the room. The rooms were small with barely enough room...

It felt like the management or ownership just went thru a change. We arrived and our room had dirty towels all over the floor and the cleaning staff had not finished the job. The manager was quit embarrassed and corrected the situation. The walls are paper thin...and I mean paper thin...you can hear EVERYTHING...full conversations, tinkling in the toilet and...

I'm not eager to go back. The bed was OK and so was the bathroom. It's a small room and minus the coffeemaker which we really like. Room 105 needs a new shower head and it would be beneficial to have screens on the window and door. There is no A/C and we left the window partially open for ventilation...
