Finding Cheap Colorado Resort Hotels At Huge Discounts in the Fall

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, a guy’s golf trip, or just some time in the mountains, autumn is awesome. This is the the deal: premium hotel rooms are discounted to regular rates, and regular rates are at rock bottom prices because the Colorado mountains are famous for winter, not fall. For those in the know, summer is as much if not more fun in the Rockies, so prices are at the highest in winter and summer. Late spring is known as ‘mud season’ and rates are low. Fall is, well, fall, and rates are likewise very low. Now, mud season is okay, but it can actually be quite muddy. Fall, on the other hand, is incredible! The nights and mornings are cool, but mild daytime temperatures make hiking, biking, golfing, fishing and all kinds of other outdoor activities a blast. Plus, there are lots of fun things happening in many of the mountain towns.

Look at the screen capture here. The Steamboat Grand for $139 per night is INSANE! This is where royalty would stay and you can get it for the price of a fairly standard hotel room.

I spoke with Harry Damm with Beaver Run Resort at the base of Peak 9 in Breckenridge about some of the great deals they are offering, and some of the fun activities happening this weekend and beyond.

Here are a few tips to getting the best prices for your hotel room.

Research

Check out the big sites, like Kayak.com, Expedia.com, and even smaller ones like Yourskivacation.com (one of my favorites for booking in Colorado ski towns). Find the best prices. Once you have a handle on the general cost, you can either book it, or…

Call the Resort

Sometimes they’ll start with a high price, and then I say, “I have a rate at ___ that I found online.” Once they realize you’ve done some looking, they may have better prices or add-ons like activity vouchers for you.

Be spontaneous and flexiblE

They don’t hate anything more than an empty hotel room. The price of an approaching weekend could be lower if they realize they aren’t going to reach capacity. Also, one resort may have a conference that has them booked, so their rates could be higher than one right down the road. So, if Keystone is asking for high prices, call Beaver Run. If Beaver Run is booked, call Copper Mountain.
