If you plan on hitting the Ale Trail, the Monte Vista is the perfect place to stay. The six stops on the Trail are in easy walking distance. The hotel is a great little place. Rooms are not big, but how much room do you need...?! They have two bars, a pool table / dart room, a band downstairs the...

The famous movie stars that stayed here and the stories of the ghosts are fascinating but the rooms are about like a motel 6. Anyway, it is right in the middle of fun shopping, restaurants and bars and the staff is so friendly and helpful that it was a good stay. I have never stayed in a room that is...

Most of the rooms are named after famous (mostly dead) people who stayed there - Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, and so on. I think I was in the Gene Tierney room. Rooms definitely have an old feel - layout, decor, etc. For the historically or architecturally inclined this could be a good thing. For others, not so much. The ground...

The Monte Vista is a mixed bag. This railroad hotel was built circa 1927, so the lobby and common areas downstairs capture that era nicely. The hotel lobby, the Rendezvous Bar really capture the essence of this old establishment. We were there on a First Friday for the art-walk and the hotel and bars were abuzz with activity. So now...

Being that this was my second time staying at the hotel, I knew I was going to have a fun time. For the last time I went was in September of last year , right before I started going to community college, and me and my family had stayed in the Alan Ladd room... It was the best time ever!...

I was really disappointed by the Hotel Monte Vista. My friends and I were looking for a fun place to stay that would give us some good stories to tell. We knew it was supposed to be historical and haunted, so we thought it would have interesting old decor and maybe some creepy areas. Unfortunately, it really didn't live up...

Location! Location! Location! Right on the corner of San Francisco and Aspen. You can walk the town and browse the shops and once your feet are aching, no need to drive back to your hotel, just step inside to Hotel Monte Vista's cafe/bar. Lively atmoshere, and floor to ceiling glass windows on two corner walls - great for people watching...

This is an interesting place to stay. It is by no means new. The rooms are small, and not much has been done to update the hotel from its historical nature -- which I think is on purpose. Some rooms are larger depending upon how much you want to spend. But this place has class and interest. The famous people...

Was tired of the same old Super 8/Motel 6 so we took a chance on the Monte Vista. Loved it, tons of character, neat and clean. Great lively lower level bar, in fact it was voted best "dive bar". We would stay here again.
