Independence Square Lodge by Frias

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a great stay at the Independence and enjoyed the generous breakfast, rooftop hot tub, nice 2nd story seating area, ski lockers, and helpful desk staff. It's super clean and comfortable and just a half block from the free buses that run all over town and to the ski areas. A couple of pointers 1) Ask to stay on the side not facing the Alley - the club across can be very loud after a show! 2) You have to go up and down stairs to access the hotel and there's no parking in front. It'll be tough to bring bags in and out if you have heavy bags and if stairs are hard for you. 3) Desk staff are only on site from 7am-7pm - tough for late arrivals.

The only drawback was our room overlooked an alley where there was a bar . There were frequent outbursts of noise throughout the night i.e. Loud rowdy conversations, empty beer bottles being dumped, early trash morning trash removal, etc. Since we were there only one night we decided to overlook it but if it were a longer stay I would have requested a room change.

It's a little loud because you're right in the center of things, but we didn't mind it and sleep through anything. The central location is great if you don't have a rental car. The room was small, but well outfitted and had a 'fridge so a longer stay would be easy there.
