Colorado's Old Style Motels were built during the gold and railroad booms, these buildings are a row of units connected together that have classic knotty pine interiors with full kitchens or kitchenettes; in Colorado we refer to these unique accommodations as Cabin-ettes. Instead of being a stand-alone cabin on the outside, it is part of a multi-unit structure. These Cabin-ettes style motels have inspired modern versions that have additional amenities like large soaking tubs in master suites with private balconies that reach out into the Mountains of Colorado and brings them to your doorstep.
Colorado Hotels and Motels Have unique Stay and Play Packages: the possibilities start with narrow gauge train rides, hot springs soaking pools, spa services, rafting trips and wine tasting tours.
