There are only two places to stay in Fort Garland (that I know of), so I recommend that you try Walsenburg or Alamosa. The Lodge is noisy (guests seemed to be bouncing off the walls and floors). There was exposed wiring from the old baseboard heater. It was a very small room ... like half of a normal "small" room.... More

We drove down Friday night, slept well, and tackled two 14ers on Saturday. A good nights sleep was critical to a successful climb, and the Lodge Motel delivered. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, there was hot water, a fridge... nothing missing. Great value, by the way... only $50/room.

The lodge is an older building and it shows. The inside of my room was huge. The room was clean had cable TV, I watched a movie on HBO. The bed was comfy. Very flat pillows. The bathroom was big and clean but the cocking showed its age, no mildew. I missed having a big of Kleenex. The carpet was... More

This was the best motel that I have been to in a while! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I don't know what the woman below me was talking about, but if she READ their sign on the door it said to leave the key in the room for check out, and my room was clean and very... More

Cons: Motel looks run down from the outside, Check-in office a bit messy and chaotic, Very slow internet at about 3 Mbps. No free breakfast. No box of Kleenex, no bath fan. Flypaper on the window inside had quite a few little moths and bugs on it. (Maybe that's a pro, can't decide.) Pros: We got two queen beds in... More

This is not a fancy place. It's a motel--it's not supposed to be! I would stay here again because it met my expectations exactly: it was clean, the owners were friendly, they had cable, and it was very close to the Great Sand Dunes National Park (about 25 minutes from the park entrance). The delightful part about the motel is... More

The rooms are old and dingy with that old motel smell. The rooms are very clean and you can tell the owners are doing their best to provide clean rooms and good service. The room has a window unit for AC which did not cool the room off adequately but once the sunset and it cooled down overnight, it wasn't... More

Great place to stay, very welcoming and everything I needed including fridge, microwave, flat screen with HBO channels, and super-fast wifi. The bed was also awesome, and I'm princess in the pea with back and hip issues, but slept like a baby with the fan on. And the price was perfect.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the San Luis Valley area. Linda and Richard, the owners, are very accommodating and make you feel welcome. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The cleaning staff is very friendly and helpful. Love that the windows open for fresh air, no recycled hotel air. Most, if not all rooms have 2 very comfortable... More
