  • It may seem odd to give a five star review to a drive on an interstate highway but the views from I-70 through the Glenwood Canyon are breathtaking. The walls of the canyon come right down to the edge...  more »
  • Had a brief visit to The canyon while we were passing thru on a bus tour. The rest area that we stopped at was very clean and well maintained. There were picnic tables next to the cold Colorado river....  more »
  • We got here very early in the morning to hike up to the lake. It was already packed. When we left there was a long line waiting to get into the park. We had a nice picnic lunch after our hike.  more »

Where to stay in Glenwood Springs

Most of the places to stay in Glenwood Springs sit within walking distance of the Colorado River. The hot springs pool lies on the north bank of the river, as do many of the town's hotels. Most of the town, however, is on the south bank of the river, so choose a place here for better access to local services and entertainment. Accommodations in town range from bed and breakfasts to historical hotels to resorts. You'll also find numerous national chain hotels and vacation rentals in condominiums and private homes. If you're looking to ski at Aspen and stay in Glenwood Springs as a less-expensive lodging alternative, inquire at local hotels about accommodation-and-lift-ticket packages.
