Right in the center of the town--well, 2 (small) blocks from Elk Ave., which is "THE" main beehive of activity of the town, which makes it a joy to walk just about anywhere and everywhere. Added bonus: each room gets panoramic views of the mountains.

It’s an inn, so don’t expect "Ritz-y" décor. The "homey" feel of the room more than makes up for it. Pine bed, armoire and nightstands compliment the English-cottage fabrics used.
Instead of air-conditioning (which you won’t be needing, as nights can be very cool and sometimes cold, even in summer), a small fan is provided. In fact, I bet the down comforter is a must all year long.
What we found a bit unsatisfactory was the fact that the windows could not be opened if, like us, you want some ventilation some of the time. Rest assured, however, that it was no big deal.
The pillows were also a bit thin and not as fluffy to offer much support. So, as a tip, I suggest bring extra pillows.

Aside from the complimentary continental breakfast of fruits, pastries, breads, hot drinks, and juices, there is also a late afternoon/early evening (or what we were told was an après ski--in, our case, après hike would be better suited!)treat of homemade cookies and hot drinks in the Inn’s Great Room, which is truly comfortable.
There’s something special the Inn also offers its guest: a rag! Yep, you read right--a rag. There’s one in each room, and there’s a bunch of them rightly placed by the elevator (by the entrance) for wiping off that mud from one’s shoes or wiping car windows and windshields. Not only does it make sense, but it's also more proper than using the the towels in each room.
There was a rag in our room when we checked in; however, on our second day, after our room’s clean-up, a replacement was not provided til the day we checked out. I guess that’s why there’s a bunch right there at the ground floor.
A hot tub? Sure! Out on the open deck terrace on the second floor, guests needing to unwind after the day’s activities can have this luxury--with these considerations, other guests from the rooms facing the hot tub have you at that vantage point. If you're near enough, you can listen in to your day’s experiences. Lastly, make sure you have a thick robe/towel to wrap yourself in upon stepping out of the tub, as the temperature in Crested Butte, even in July (after 5pm), could be in the 50s.
There are vending machines (water, sodas, and juices) located on the second-floor terrace, so those overpriced drinks usually in hotels were NO problem. Excellent option, especially for late-night snack cravings.
