**The Frisco Inn on Galena Street (most of us will be here). It is right downtown. A double room costs $125.55 a night. This includes wine and appetizers in the afternoons and a full breakfast each morning. Their number is: 970-668-0195. The only tricky part is, if you make a reservation now and cancel before 45 days, you still have to pay half the cost and if you cancel within 45 days, you owe 100%. They do sell cancellation insurance for $15 and this would be for reasons that can be documented OR the lodges sells insurance for any kind of reason for 11% of the cost of the rooms.
Hotel Frisco is right downtown for $124/night. No breakfast, but does have pet rooms. 970-668-5009.
Another much cheaper option is Snowshoe Motel on the Main Street. It costs $59 for a double room and includes a continental breakfast. It has pet rooms for $10 more and requires a 48 hour cancellation notice. 970-668-3444
There is also a Holiday Inn on the lake for $89 a night. No breakfast and is a 10 to 12 min walk from the town center. 970-668-5000
