If you are looking for a comfortable, no frills hotel, with an unbeatable riverside location in the town of Telluride, Mountainside Inn is where it's at! Approximately 100 yards from the base of Chair 7 and two blocks from the Gondola, Mountainside Inn has plenty of ski access to the world-class Telluride Ski Resort. The free Galloping Goose bus stop is steps away as is the San Miguel River trail. Follow the trail East and it brings you to Town Park, Festival central in the summertime. Head West and you are assured to see some kind of wildlife as you cross the Valley Floor. The River Trail is open year-round for walking, running and biking. If it's snowy we recommend using fat tired bikes!
The biggest bonus to staying at Mountainside Inn is the General Manager. From personal welcome emails with detailed instructions for busy festival times to the care she puts into the occasional pan of baked goods for guests, Heather brings a level of hospitality not often seen at this price point.
Hotel rooms are offered with or without kitchenettes, and there are also a few larger condos in the complex. A large outdoor hot tub is available to guests and there is complimentary wireless internet service. Other amenities include charcoal grills, bike racks, limited courtyard parking with additional access to a dedicated area in Carhenge, and coin-operated laundry facilities.
