Spacious dorm with historic bay window overlooking town.
My sister and I had a great experience in Rico w Olen. We arrived late but he was such a gracious and welcoming host, made sure the fire was rolling and our bedroom was warm. He gave a great recommendation on a coffee shop up the road as well as directions to make it back to Telluride. Overall it was a great experience. If I'm ever back that way I would definitely stay here. Thanks again!!
Olen was very accommodating and easy to get in touch with. I originally booked two bunks in the dorm for a friend and myself, but Olen upgraded us to a private room as the dorm area was occupied by all men the night we arrived. I appreciated his thoughtfulness! We were able to check in and check out at flexible times, so staying here was perfect for our somewhat loose schedule.
Very pleasant stay. Christina welcomed and greeted us then showed us around the hotel. She was very accommodating and pleasant. The hotel is beautifully furnished with antiques and beautiful pieces from the past. The little town of Rico is delightful and the hotel serves the community well. We had a quiet and restful night.
My friend and I had an amazing stay at Olen's inn/hostel. He responded immediately to our reservation request and went out of his way to accommodate us. The place was incredibly clean and his attention to detail was impressive. There was a large kitchen with all the necessary amenities for cooking a meal or having a nice breakfast. The place has wonderful large windows with views of the mountains. A huge highlight were the wood burning stoves in both living rooms. The place is also centrally located w/a great beer store nearby and the Argentine Grill! We took beautiful walks each day. Super close to Telluride. Highly recommend the place!
Great spot, comfy beds and cool host in a wonderful San Juan Mountain Town.
Rico's a fun little stop over for the night. This place is a really gorgeous and charming house and I'm disappointed that I didn't get to spend more time there. I was the only person in the bunked-dorm-room that night. Bright windows wake you up to views of gorgeous mountains behind an incredibly tiny town. There's a pub across the street and a bed waiting for you back here. It was pretty perfect for my quick layover.
I've stayed in Rico many times over the years, but this my first time at Olen's place. He is a great guy. The place is immaculate and the two buddies I travelled with both liked as well. However, staying in the bunk dorm room might not be for everyone. I would either rent the entire room (5 bunks) or get private rooms next time. All the rooms were nice, the only challenge with the bunk room was you have no idea who is going to be in the other bunks. Our two "stranger bunk" mates were fine, but some might be a bit uncomfortable sleeping in the same room with people they have never met before. That room is more Hostel then Hotel - and Olen makes this clear, so we got exactly what we were promised. I will stay here whenever I am in Rico!
