Our room had fantastic views of the river and was clean and well taken care of. You wouldn’t know that someone had stayed there before us. My only complaint (and this is most likely a user error) is that it was super hot during the night like the heating was on.

Great motel in very convenient downtown location. We walked to all the shops and restaurants. The free bus to the ski location (and Gondola Sunset Happy Hour) stops right in front of the motel. We also made shuttle reservations for Strawberry Hot Springs and were picked up/dropped off at the motel. Room was a good size, clean, with microwave and refrigerator. Was a perfect spot for our 2-night stay. My daughter lives in Denver and said she would go back with friends.

Only stayed one night but hotel staff and location were perfect. As we were pulling out of the hotel parking lot, the maid ran out to the car to give me a brand new ipad that I had accidentally left in the room! Thanks!! No question where I'll stay when I go back.

Very noisy, could be cleaner; an average cheap motel

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast
Room was tiny, but tv was nice; found hairs in shower, on towels, and on pillows, so cleanliness in question. The breakfast is quite weak, oj, milk, dry cereal/oatmeal, bagels, mostly Safeway brands. Noise is awful! Awoke to someone scraping ice outside of our room at 7am. There were maybe 6 rooms occupied in the entire complex, and they had workers making all kinds of noise starting at 7am. When I asked to switch rooms for our 2nd night later in the day the front desk person told me I should of came earlier when I was being awoke. She said it would cost more $$ to switch. We stayed in our room and had the same thing next morning, except this time it was a vacuum cleaner at 8am right above us, then right next to us. Not the place you want to stay if you like to sleep in on vacation. Really thin walls because we also could hear the tv from one of the neighboring rooms at night when we were laying down. The location is great as you are walking distance to downtown and close to the Yampa River and accompanying trail. We found several other cheap motels further on down the highway, though, with comparable locations that we wish we would have checked out before stopping at the first cheap place we saw.

Love the Rabbit Ears!

If you want to stay in The Boat to enjoy the town itself, this is the place. We had a double-queen overlooking the river and loved hearing the river each night. Have to note we also heard the train, which runs just on the other side of the river, each night, usually at about 330am. Rolled over and went back to sleep. The location made it easy to wander the town and enjoy the shops and restaurants, and we enjoyed the historic Americana-kitschyness of the place. Rooms large and comfortable enough, although the vanity area outside the bathroom was cramped. Service friendly and helpful. I

Not bad...

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
This isn't bad for the money. Location is good, you can walk to shops and restaurants, the hot springs pools are right across the street and there is a ski shuttle just a few steps away. Don't expect anything fancy if you stay here but if you need a cheap place in a convenient location that accepts pets then you should be satisfied with this place.
