Columbine Inn & Suites
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Leadville
Reviewed 6 September 2011

We came in the Sunday before Labor Day. We stayed in room 101. I liked when we went in that it had a picturesque view. The room was clean and the bed was fine, except if you moved at all I think it was the headboard that made noise. It had A/C and the room was very quiet. The continental breakfast was nothing special, but it was in line with the class of hotel this was. If you are looking for a clean and reasonable place to crash in Leadville, this is it.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms facing the back of the property.

This is a very basic hotel that is pretty much a dressed-up super 8, very basic rooms with the minimum you would expect from a bargain-priced hotel. However, they are not bargain priced. Most importantly, it is very inconvenient if you are participating in any athletic events in and around Leadville.

First, the bait-and-switch. They promised $80 per night and then very close to the event, they contacted us and said, "oh gee, we forgot it was Leadville 100 weekend," and then doubled the price. Apparently without a written contract in Colorado, they are allowed to pull this bait-and-switch, even up close to the event when nothing else is available.

Second, here's your welcome: There are several prominent signs in the lobby reminding that bikes are NOT allowed in the rooms. The second tells you that they do NOT do wake up calls. The third tells you that check out if 10:30 (one of the earliest I've ever seen) and that additional minutes at $15? Nearly any place I've ever stayed during the day of an athletic event did a slightly later checkout.

Third. Only once did I see someone behind a desk despite coming and going often. That person grunted at me without smiling when I greeted her, and then went back to reading, or whatever she was doing and ignored me.

In short, thanks for the money, now leave us alone.

It's a reasonably clean place, no problems other than the broken hot tub. There are pretty flowers in the front, otherwise it looks pretty much like a generic hotel. The water was hot, the water pressure was good, and the wi-fi and cable worked, the bed was reasonably comfortable. But:

--the walls are a bit thin, so bring a white noise machine and an alarm clock you trust, since they refuse to do wake-up calls.
--Whatever price they give you, insist on getting it in writing, or an email confirmation.
--pack your bags on the day of the event if you're a back-of-the-packer.

It's a decent, basic hotel, it just isn't worth the money or the attitude. I've written another review on a much more conveniently located hotel for athletes, (and they do wake-up calls, too!)

The Columbine Inn is an average place in which to stay at. Here are positive things about it. Location is good as it is about a mile from downtown Leadville. It's clean. Plenty of good parking. Bathroom and shower is decent. Negative things: Overpriced. Continental breakfast is a little skimpy. When I called days before arrival and asked if they had a microwave and refridgerator, they said "yes, there is a microwave and refridgerator." Guess what? There is a refrigerator but not a microwave. Also, we found out when we arrived that they did not allow our expensive bicycle into the room. This was disappointing news since we informed them when we made the reservation that the reason we are are in Leadville is for the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike race. I think they should have mentioned that policy up front. (They did offer storage for the bike; but who wants to store an expensive bike in an unresearched storage area?) Overall, the Columbine Inn is an decent place to stay in Leadville, CO.

Wow, was I surprised! We have stayed at this hotel many times with good satisfaction. However, this visit there was a problem. We arrived at 9:00PM with reservations. The reservations were made a month in advance and reconfirmed 2 twice (including the night before). When we showed up the reserved rooms were not available. Instead of two queen beds we had only one. OK so there was a mistake- I can accept this. Normally you would, as a minimum, receive an apology and maybe a small discount. Not so. Instead the owner rolled her eyes at us, threw her papers around and very strongly insinuated we were telling her lies. I am sure she was having a bad day? When it was calmly pointed out that we did not appreciate the rudeness, she proceeded to threaten to rescind our reservation knowing full well that all of the Hotels in town were full (with a smirk). This was followed by the comment "I cannot watch my employees at all times and am not responsible for their actions". Bottom Line- This put a very sour taste to the end of a great family vacation. Beware of the Owner!!

We spent two nights here and found the hotel very clean and comfortable. The owners obviously are proud of their hotel and keep it in very good shape. The room and public areas were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was nice--bagels, cereal, fruit, juice, and coffee.
