This is the only motel at the Sand Dunes. It has basic amenities. Some units have mini-fridges and are larger than others. The views from all rooms are stunning. Options for food are very limited. There is a restaurant/convenience store within walking distance. Any other se

While the rates are a bit steep compared to similar motels, you get some awesome views here. Furnishings are basic but clean and there are microwaves and fridges as well as barbecues outside the rooms so you won't have to starve. It's a good idea to bring your own food anyway bec

Only hotel next to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Small, only about 15 units, so plan ahead if you want to stay there. Family own operation. No frills but the views are worth the stay, especially the sunsets. Rooms are standard rooms, two double beds, microwave and mini

Do you allow a 25lb well mannered dog if we stay 1 night sept.6th. If not do you know where the closest boarding facility is licated? Thank you.
You need to call the lodge to ask. I am sorry, but I don't know. There are cabins and camping next to the property and I do recall seeing people with dogs on leashes there.

Do you allow a 25 lb well mannered dog for one night, Sept 6th and what is the charge? If not, do you know where the closest kennel is? Thank you.
They definitely do not allow pets. I believe there is at least one kennel in Alamosa (about 30 minutes south), and also up near Pueblo, depending where you're coming from. If you google it they will come up.
