This is an older no frills hotel that sits right at the base of chair 7. You can ski right to the back door of the hotel at the end of the day. My room had a kichenette which was great since I brought two children. You will never need a car when you are staying there. You can walk to restaurants, movie theater, gondola and grocery store. I have stayed here 3 years in a row now and I don't know if I could have afforded a trip to Telluride if I had to stay at a regular priced hotel. You can't find a better deal in Telluride.

There is construction nearby and it was mentioned prior to booking on Travelocity but no where did it mention there was no onsite parking for this hotel. We had to park on the street 2 blocks away which was good but if you visit during a festival good luck. Also, the construction site was completely open to pedestrian traffic and unsafe (rebar unprotected). When you book with Travelocity please call the number listed for after hours before you get to the hotel. There was no one at the front desk (at 6 pm!) and we had to "self check in" by opening a lock box with a code were not given because we booked with Travelocity. I called and left a message with the manager on duty but she never returned my call; I had to call several numbers to get the lock box code from a recording. The room was basic but the bed and couch were very comfortable. The door was very thin but the area did not make us feel unsafe. This hotel seems to be overpriced for what you get but everything is overpriced in Telluride. We probably will try another hotel on our next visit to Telluride.
Mountainside Inn: No hot water!!!12/08/2009

I would not reccommend this place. I had to wait for the front desk person to come to the desk for 10 or more minutes then she didn't give me the information package she was suppose to. This became important the next morning when I went to take a shower and found there was no hot water. The front desk didn't answer because no one was there and the emergency number I was suppose to call was in the packet I didn't receive. When I mentioned this at check out I was made to feel it was my problem I didn't know who to call. They are clearly doing renovations and so I can tolerate some confusion but their attitude and indifference are unacceptable for a very mediocre establishment. I will never go back.

If you want to go to Telluride and walk just steps to the lifts without paying a fortune, this is the place for you. It is old and not updated, but if it was, it would cost triple the price. I am sure it will be torn down soon and some spa resort will be in it's place and then I will officially not be able to afford to stay in Tellurde.
Great Value But Don't Expect The Ritz08/15/2007

You won't find lodging in Telluride at these prices, but don't expect a swanky hotel either. Good points: Room was clean. Bed was okay. We had TV with free HBO; refrigerator; microwave; small kitchen sink; all dishes & utensils. Large bathroom with small walk-in shower. There is an outdoor hot tub and barbque grills available for guests on premises. Very pet friendly lodging. In fact, all of Telluride is extremely pet friendly! Mountainside Inn was within walking distance of shops and eateries as well as the free gondola to the top of the mountain.
Not so good points: Room had slight musty odor; hallway floors creaked everywhere; if you can't take stairs, ask for a room on the first floor because there are no elevators. Parking is a BIG problem. If you arrive late, you will not find a parking spot at the Mountainside Inn. They have very limited parking spaces. You'll have to park a few blocks away, as we did, but beware of "no parking" signs and rules. There is a free parking lot about 2 blocks from the Inn.
Overall, if you want value, the Mountainside Inn is an excellent place to stay, but if you're used to triple diamond hotels, this may be a dissapointment to you. It has a "cabin on the lake" feel and is a bit older and darker on the inside. Would I stay there again? Yes, simply because of the value! But if I had the money, I would prefer something a little more modern.
