For those unfamiliar with the central Rockies, landing in Summit County can be a bit otherworldly. Even locals, distracted by the beauty of Lake Dillon while headed west on I-70, have missed the exit for Frisco, CO. With mountain views all around, finding a hotel in Frisco, CO, is the primary goal of many vacationers seeking an ideal home base to visit one or more of the four nearby ski resorts (Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin). Overall, lodging options are fewer than in some other Summit County towns. Frisco, CO, hotels are located along Main Street or just off exits 201 or 203 and I-70. The Main Street Frisco, CO, hotels give visitors a front row seat to the town’s quaint, mile-long row of restaurants and funky boutiques. These inns and hotels also reside at the foot of several giant escarpments (Peak 1, Mount Royal and Wichita Mountain). Just blocks from these Main Street locations are the Frisco Bay Marina and Lake Dillon. Expansive Lake Dillon views might best be found from the Baymont Inn, a high-rise at the Frisco exit.
Beyond Frisco, CO, Hotels
Several hotels in Frisco, CO, bear familiar brand names like Holiday Inn, Baymont Inn and Ramada. Several smaller independent inns and hotels are very quaint and feature the kinds of amenities most travelers seek such as hot tubs and free WiFi access. Nothing is more convenient than waking on a gorgeous blue sky morning and walking one block for fresh coffee and a hearty breakfast. Nearby towns, in particular Breckenridge and Keystone, have a greater variety of accommodations ranging from vacation rental properties and bed and breakfasts to ski in, ski out condos and cabins. But after staying in Frisco, many guests would never consider anywhere else.
