    The hosts were very congenial. John cooked us a nice Denver omelette for breakfast. Room was clean, big, and the bed was comfortable. The inn is classy, with beautiful woodwork. Thanks very much, John and Kim!

    Amazing Woodwork

    Beautiful classy establishment The building itself is amazing . ... the minute you walk in you can see the richness in the entry and staircase. The bed was extremely comfortable. The only thing I found incongruent was actually in the bathroom ... single ply toilet paper, no Kleenex, no shampoo.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I would not recommend this place to a nun, a priest or my worst enemy. The host barely speaks English, does not have any manners & does not have a concept of what boundaries & privacy means here in North America. She was constantly nagging us while we stayed there & did not provide appropriate instructions as to what the rules of the hotel were (if you can call it a hotel, it's more like a house). Amenities were incredibly minimal for the high prices they charge, hell, there wasn't even toothpaste, soap or anything like that in the room; complimentary or otherwise. The lady kept telling me to do a cash deal with her instead of going through Travelocity so that they could avoid paying fees & taxes. Very unprofessional & sketchy people. DO NOT STAY HERE if you care about having a positive experience. Luis Rodriguez
