Meeker Hotel and Cafe Review

The lobby is lined with framed broadsheet biographies of famous figures—such as Teddy Roosevelt—who stayed in this landmark, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Rooms have claw-foot tubs and heavy beds; the Balcony Suite opens to a balcony that runs along the front of the hotel and looks out onto Main Street. The Old West–style restaurant ($$–$$$) in this hotel is filled with a veritable forest of rustic furniture, and dozens of massive trophy elk and deer peer down from every wall. Peruse the menu (it's got lively stories of Meeker's past), then try the homemade soup, chicken-fried steak, and mashed potatoes with cream gravy.

    Meeker Hotel and Cafe Review

    Charming. They pride themselves on being a little piece of Old West history and they are. Rustic. Wonderful place to stop on the way to Steamboat Springs. It sits off the highway, on Main Street- just one block off Hwy 13. Look for it. Meeker is only about 2 miles long so if you pass the town- you've gone too far. Our kids love the place and beats stopping for fast food or a greasy spoon. We stayed one night, out of curiousity and because the roads were slick, and it was a pleasure. Staff is very friendly and the Roosevelt suite was lovely. It was a great conversation starter for the kids, although my daughter was horrified to see a picture of Roosevelt standing over a dead elephant (my son thought it was awesome). Breakfast in the AM was filling. Overall, a great pit stop to somewhere else, but also a great place to spend the night. I wish Steamboat still had some of its old west hotels still standing.
