Noisy

Room was very clean and reasonably updated given the market segment. Unfortunately, you can hear EVERY noise made in the place - people tromping on the stairs, doors banging closed throughout the building. Even with ear plugs it was difficult to have a peaceful night. Host was brusque, but we had been warned via other reviews. No big deal. Just a transaction - this isn't a B&B. Motel has two unconnected buildings, so if you're planning on going to the pool area, plan on crossing the parking lot if you're in the 2nd building. Since the main goal of a motel in this price range is being able to sleep at a reasonable price . . . and it was too noisy (even with earplugs) to sleep well . . . I would look elsewhere unless prices are your deciding factor.

Worth a try

The room was roomy, clean, older but updated and everything worked as expected. Nice large vanity area. Good water pressure and sufficient outlets for recharging devices. Notice: large sign in front says Sundowner Motel, with a tiny sign saying Americas Best Value (easy to miss.). The Internet speed was poor and they still use old-fashioned keys. One of the poorest continental breakfasts I've ever seen so don't count on breakfast! Lots of restaurants around.

Decent Hotel

This place looks very little like the picture hosted above. The hotel was good, but they had an early check-out time (10am). Overall it was a good experience, but a little difficult to find initially. The Rocky Mountains are decently accessible from the hotel, and there are some terrific restaurants about 400 feet down the street on the opposite side of US-40.

Pretty good deal

Considering the price, this is a good value. The location is right next to shops and restaurants and on the shuttle line to the ski lifts. The room was a good enough size and clean. The pool/hottub is pretty small/basic but the kids had fun there. The "breakfast" is just packaged pastries and coffee.

Good & Cheap

Just need a place to sleep while hiking around rocky mountain national park the the surrounding areas as it was too cold to camp. Comfy bed, clean shower, fridge, hair dryer, coffee maker, I was set. Happy with my two day stay.

Just up the street about 7 minutes is an awesome little breakfast/brunch place called Wild Rose. Vegetarian options and meat lovers plates too. Fresh and tasty. Try the quiche of the day or the goddess frittata, pancakes are amazing too!

Will be staying somewhere else next time!

Beds - terrible. They haven't been turned in 20 years. It's so bad that your feet are elevated! Bathroom - terrible. I wouldn't let my son take a bath. Pool/hot tub - disgusting. Need I say more?

Just the Basics

America's Best Value Inn (also called The Sundowner# is in a prime location in the center of the town of Winter Park. It's within walking distance to all the shops and many good restaurants. As for the room, it was ordinary, but clean and comfortable. It had cable, a fridge, micowave, hair dryer and coffeemaker. The owners also provide free coffee and cocoa in the check-in area, as well as packaged Danish and crumb cakes #it's not breakfast by any means, but more a snack). The indoor pool was tiny, but the hot tub looked inviting. It seems pricey for the size, but I understand that ski resort hotel rooms cost more than the average rooms.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Cooper Creek shopping center across the street has many cute shops and a few restaurants. It's good for a couple of hours of strolling. It also has a free ice skating rink.

A place to "rest," not "sleep"

My biggest complaint about this Motel (not Inn, or hotel), is the bed. I managed to fall asleep at about 11:30pm, and woke up at about 2am. I was unable to fall back asleep but continued to rest without sleep until about 8am (I normally sleep soundly until 9am when I go to sleep at that time). The bed was extremely uncomfortable and there were lots of noises throughout the room as I tried to fall back asleep. Other that the bed, I would say this Motel is adequately priced, but I would not think of returning without upgraded beds.
