“Relaxing riverine counter to Aspen glitz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

I have stayed once a year over about ten years for 3-7 days each at the Aspenalt and can say that it has stayed consistent over that period. It is quite comfortable albeit basic. The real pluses are two: being in Basalt and being right on the Fryingpan River. Most of the hotel's rooms are within 30 yards of the delightful Fryingpan, providing a relaxing and woodsy break from the glitz of Aspen or highway conformity of the other accommodations further "down valley". Basalt is a nice tidy, only slightly touristic town--very relaxing--that provides easy access both to Aspen (consider taking the bus in as traffic and parking can be difficult) and the mountains, especially up the Fryingpan.

Have breakfast at the Two Rivers Cafe for both an excellent value and feeling for the locals.

Why do i go there every year? World class trout fishing--a mecca for fly fishers--with two excellent fly shops in town.

Be sure to get a room on the river--some are not.

Room Tip: Get one On the river only.

This hotel is a great option if you're looking for a clean, convenient place to sleep. If you're looking for luxury, the Aspenalt will be a disappointment. I've stayed here countless times for business, and it's always been good.

Based on the reviews I was a bit apprehensive about booking this motel. I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Our room overlooked the Frying Pan River (we were upgraded), clean, and the breakfast was good. Staff was friendly and helpful.

If you rent a room by the river, you will not be disturbed. You can watch the magic of a small mountain town and feel safe and secure. Really enjoyed it

We stayed at the Aspenalt Lodge for 6 nights in early May while visiting family in Basalt. We chose this lodge due to it's proximity to our family's home which we were visiting. We were greeted by the loveliest folks ever, Chris & Anetta; check - in was a breeze. Once in our room, we found it immaculate, very clean and very comfy, it was a an added bonus to have a room facing the river! The hot tub was incredible!!
A continental breakfast was available every morning. Chris had suggested several places to see and we were very pleased with his suggestions.
We couldn't have asked for a better get away. This place is very relaxing and service is by far better and friendlier than we've experienced in a long time.
We will definitely come back again next year!! Thank you C. & A.!!
