Hotel Minturn
Ranked #2 of 3 Minturn B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 July 2017

I was excited to find this place on the internet. It looked like a unique alternative to Vail. I reserved the Premier #3 room with deck. Right after you make your reservation, you get an email giving you access codes to get into the hotel and into your room. There is no lobby or employees there. This was surprising to me as it didn't say anything about this on their website, which does mention providing "hospitality", which to me means service-oriented employees. The room itself was clean and adequate, but the deck is a joke. It is very small, has no furniture, with a car and garbage cans stored under it, looking out onto the street and the patio of the hostel across the street (where people congregate on the outdoor sofas) - so don't pay extra for the deck! I stayed in June and it was hot out. There is no A/C at this hotel, so I had to sleep with the windows open (the temperature in the room was in the eighties). You'd be surprised by how much noise there is in tiny downtown Minturn at night, but the hotel is located near a few bars, so there were car alarms and people yelling and walking by noisily outside for a good portion of the night. There is a street that runs directly under the front windows, which also provides its share of noise. Since there was a breeze, I had to have the blinds open otherwise they would bang around, so the hotel's neon sign directly above the windows didn't help with darkness. After a horrible night's sleep, at 7 AM there was more noise out front in the street/parking lot. Vendors had arrived to set up for the Minturn Market which apparently occurs during the summer every Saturday from 9 AM - 2 PM. As part of this, the vendors come early to set up, which includes putting a speaker right next to the hotel's door (right under the room's windows) and playing music the whole time. The other thing you should know is that there is no dedicated parking for the hotel, the parking lot directly in front of the hotel is not for the hotel. There are 4 public spots along the street by the hotel; if you can't get one of those, you have to park out along the main road. During the Minturn Market, that isn't even possible and I was lucky to find a spot across the river in the farthest public lot. The tiny sofa in the room folds out into a twin sleeper, which is a positive that the website doesn't mention. Another positive - the bed was comfortable. My overall conclusion is that this hotel is probably better in the winter when it is cold outside so the windows aren't open.

We loved Hotel Minturn. The rooms are a comfortable size with king size bed along with single sofa pullout. The beds and pillows are so comfortable! There is no front desk...you get a code to get in the front door and a code for your room. It's a very simple process. We rented the 2 top rooms which worked out good for our family since we could easily go back and forth between the rooms. Hotel Minturn reminded us of the mountain hotels in Switzerland that we've stayed at...the best bedding! You can walk to any downtown location. We will stay there again!

Hotel Minturn is a charming place to stay with very modern rooms and it is very quiet. Not complicated to check-in as there is no front desk and everything is handled electronically. Great beds and linens and a nice little kitchenette so you can bring beverages and enjoy Keurig coffee in the morning. We enjoy the town of Minturn and especially the Minturn Country Club (footsteps away) for a great steak, salad, veggies and you cook your own steak. Definitely a great experience to stay at the Hotel Minturn and it keeps us coming back for a chill weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floor seem larger & quiet. First floor room has easy access as there are no stai...

Comfortable aparthotel (rather than boutique) in conveniently located Minturn. We snowboarded in Vail and Beaver Creek during our stay, each about 15 mins drive away. Also reasonable bus connection to Vail. Room was clean and warm. Design seemed to be for giants, from the kitchenette to bathroom to bed, made us feel like toddlers. Minturn has more history than the nearby resorts, with more places to eat than you might expect from a small town. Do your grocery shopping elsewhere though, the local convenience store leaves a lot to be desired.

My boyfriend and I are regular guests of Hotel Minturn. We've stayed 4 times including a 10-day Christmas trip and have several more trips on the books - we just love this place so much! Minturn is an adorable little mining town and after several visits you begin to feel like a local.

THE COMMUTE: The CME shuttle will take you directly to the hotel door; or we've rented a car too and the drive from the hotel to Vail Mountain is just 5 minutes (2 exits down). A bus system also operates between Minturn and Vail for a more affordable route. This hotel is in Minturn, not Vail proper, so yes, you'll need to plan on how you'll get your skis on the ground. But you're not paying vail prices so it's a tradeoff we're always willing to make.

THE HOTEL: They have 4 different rooms of varying sizes and each are comfortable and include everything you need. We spent 10 days in the lower mountain room (basically in the basement) and found it cozy and quiet; we never got cabin fever. Each room has coffee essentials and kitchenette items, though we usually opt for breakfast at Sticky Fingers across the street (careful, there can be long lines!) or dinner at the Saloon. Comfortable beds and linens and the cleaning staff are very kind!

A previous guest indicated they had trouble getting into the hotel. It's true there is no front-desk reception, rather instructions are emailed ahead of time. We've never had an issue getting in and I would bet that was a fluke. Amanda and the other hotel contacts have always been very, very communicative with us and are about as sweet as they come.

I almost hate to write a review because we want to keep this place our secret, but after so many stays and superb service, Hotel Minturn deserves it. Simply, we love this place, it's our home away from home!
