Affordable (much cheaper than other Telluride spots), great location (everything downtown was a 5-10 minute walk away), nice touches in the room (snacks, sparkling water, beer), free parking just 20 steps from the front door, and a host that was very responsive and sent over a ton of great recommendations and tips before we got there.
