Room came with fully stocked kitchen and great beds!!!!!! Pam, the owner treated us like family and thats the kind of folks I like doing business with. We got a discount because our son goes to school at Western State Colorado Univ and that was nice! We will be back!

Finding a place to stay with dogs can be tricky, but I am so happy that we discovered this gem. It was very clean, decorated in a retro motor lodge style, and had absolutely everything that we needed. Our unit had a kitchen, and it was fully stocked, from dishes to silverware, pots and pans, toaster to coffee maker. The... More

At the recommendation of a friend I tried this motel because it allows dogs. A retro log cabin on the outside room was large and spotlessly clean. With a small stocked kitchen, big screen TV, toiletries provided super quiet, who could ask for more. My dog was very comfortable and didn't bark or sniff continuously as in other dog friendly...

We used this property to host a Bridal Shower June 2016. The staff was amazing, they provided us with the cutest outdoor kitchen and patio. We were also able to use their dinnerware, vases, table and chairs, and a portable bar. The service they provided us was exceptional and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank You so much.

Nice older resort. Very accomodating hosts and clean rooms. Room was comfy and quiet. Kitchen was stocked well and allowed us to save on eating out every meal. Would definitely stay again. Price was fantastic!

We stayed in one of the one bedroom units in September. The location was perfect, right outside of Gunnison and close to the Curecanti area for hiking and fishing, the whitewater park across the street, and near the Harmon Rocks park. The property has a fire pit that we enjoyed one evening, complete with a "S'mores" kit! The unit itself... More

This week my wife, 5 year old and I spent a few nights at Island Acres. The service was excellent.
