Great long weeken

we enjoyed our stay tremendously. Aspen is very expensive, but at Mountain Chalet the rooms are affordable, nice, they serve great breakfasts with different options each day, and have 24 hour tea-and-coffee including snacks in the afternoons (cookies, muffins or pastries). Plus all the amenities needed: wifi, pool, jacuzzi, gym. And an unbeatable location, a couple of blocks from Aspen Mountain gondola and the main bus station across the street (to catch the free shuttles to Snowmass, Highlands, the airport). We would definitely stay there again.

Aspen Wonderland

This hotel is a amazing value in the heart of Aspen. Where every other hotel is around $400 - $600. a night, this was a little over $100. The amenities were plentiful. Free parking, pool, free wifi and an amazing breakfast. one block away from the lifts. The bathroom was brand new with great toiletries and the room was lodge cozy. You couldn't ask for a better deal.

Nice friendly lodge

The lodge is a throw back to the 60's or 70's and i don't mean that in a bad way. This is not a modern cookie cutter hotel. It is a family run lodge that offers the best hospitality in Aspen. Breakfast is great.

Sister Get Away

Perfect location to shopping and resturants. This is a family owned hotel that Ralph the owner built in 1953. The homey atmosphere is as if you are in the comfort of your own home. We stayed in room 204 which is one of the original 3 rooms built with the original dresser and desk ( furniture is not made like that anymore). The breakfast is made fresh for each person ( included in the price of the room) there is a machine that you put the oranges in and it gives you fresh orange juice. My sister and I had the pleasure to meet Ralph while having breakfast. There is a living room with a fire place where you can play board games, There is a sauna, pool ,hot tub and gym. This is not a fancy high end hotel it is a home away from home.

A good buy in the center of town

Stayeed two nights. The first night was in a second floor corner room that proved to be very noisy making sleep difficult. Moved to a third floor room in the back whiick was excellent. Great breakfast. Super location with free parking. Pleasant, helpful staff.

Bike race stay

We stayed ar the Chalet for the Aspen legs of the Colorado Pro Cycling Bicycle Race. The Location was perfect. And for sightsreeing, the local bus transit to Maroon Bells was across the street. Chalet is across the street from plenty of restaurant and visitor stuff in central Aspen. But the specially prepared breakfasts ( included) were the best we've had anywhere. The staff was great. Underground parking included. If we go back to Aspen, this is our spot. Stay here.

A Special Retreat

Mountain Chalet was a wonderful place to stay, right in the center of Aspen. It was very peaceful and quiet, guests were friendly at breakfast and afternoon tea, but other times I wondered if I was the only one there. Beautiful accommodations, true it was old, but quite modern enough and the patina of its long existence was comforting. Many return guests as well as me, a first timer. I long to return again next summer. Detailed information about the music concerts available. Near to a variety of dining experiences. Walking distance to trails and ski lifts.

Presidents Weekend

Fantastic staff, free breakfast, great location to the slopes/downtown...the room was a little dated, could use some renovating, walls are paper thin. But a great value for the President's Weekend. It's all about location at the end of a ski day when you're carrying your equipment back to the hotel.

The hotel gives 25% off on ski rentals from a local shop (I had already booked mine online, wish I had known!)
