With kitchenettes in many rooms and a dogs-welcome policy, the Mountainside appeals to the earthy types who used to visit Telluride in the '70s—a population that's diminishing as the place gets haughtier. Rooms are simple, with tables ideal for sitting and slurping ramen noodles. Since the low-slung motel abuts the slopes with ski–in access, guests can exit the snowy forests in late afternoon and head directly for the hot tub. That's when Telluride's true charm shines through: The tub is poised above the gurgling San Miguel River and affords a fine view of the mountains as they turn pink with the sunset, like so much strawberry ice cream.
