2/5 VIBE: Artistic and modest with mountain charm. From the outside, Hotel Becket is extremely unassuming and almost looks like a motel as each door opens to the outside. However, I found the hotel to have many pleasant surprises including the charming rooms, outdoor fire pit, and attached BBQ restaurant.
2/5 AMENITIES: Facilities at Hotel Becket are somewhat limited. Being a bit of a gym rat myself, I was a bit disappointed that there was no gym at this facility, however being so close to hiking during the fall and summer months, and skiing and snowboarding during the winter months, you can easily take your workouts outdoors. Seasonally, the hotel offers an outdoor pool as well as an outdoor grilling area and indoor hot tub and sauna. If you’re a dog lover, this hotel is also pet friendly!
