Hotels for September 24 - 27th, 2021

Friday 9/24 and Saturday 9/25 Reservations: Telluride, CO

Telluride in September is the “High Season” for fall leaf viewing and the rates usually hover around $400, our rates are a bit more than they would be at other times yet we have negotiated great room rates with 20 rooms in our block for “Driving for kids” at the Mountainside Inn in downtown Telluride.
From Ryan Phillips at Alpine Lodging in Telluride:
“We have your dates set for September 24 arrival and September 26 departure, staying the nights of the 24th and 25th. Please book early to get the best rates. We have rates kind of like the airlines; prices will go up the closer we are to arrival. Below you’ll see a couple of rates for a king rooms and kitchenettes. The current price is sitting a $324.00 for the least expensive king and kitchenette rooms. I will include a link below for a couple of examples. You guys are tax exempt, so no additional taxes added. Your rate includes an 8% reservation fee.”
Deposit and Cancellation Policies: The initial deposit of 10% of the total rent and taxes, plus a portion of the fees, will be due at the time of booking a reservation. The full balance is due seven (7) days prior to arrival. Reservations made within seven (7) days of arrival will be due in full on booking.
Any cancellations received more than seven (7) days prior to arrival will receive a refund of the initial deposit less the 8% Reservation Fee. Cancellations received seven (7) days or less prior to arrival will forfeit the entire balance paid. Shortening of the stay length within seven (7) days of arrival will forfeit the deposit paid for the unused nights. No refunds are given for early departure.
To reserve a room, please call Ryan Phillips, Local Reservations Agent at Alpine Lodging Telluride: (970) 369-9923 and tell him you are with Driving for Kids for the special rate.
Now for the less good news: These are condominium units and have individual ownership hence the reservation fee and the deposit and cancellation policy. The initial, non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total rent will be due at the time of booking a reservation. The full, non-refundable balance is due ten (10) days prior to arrival. The bed in each king room is a split king. This means they can set up the beds as 2 twins in each room if needed. Kings sleep two only. The kitchenettes have a queen and twin bed in them and sleep 3 total.

Sunday 9/26 Reservations: South Fork, CO

We have 22 rooms reserved for September 26 arrival and September 27 departure at the Quality Inn & Suites 182 E. Frontage Rd, South Fork, CO 81154.
All rooms will be $99.99. This is discounted from the normal $139.99 to $159.99. There are 16 rooms with two queen beds and several rooms with one king bed and one pet friendly room with king. There is also one handicap accessible room with one king bed. Please book as soon as possible to get these rates. Our room block is only guaranteed through August 15, 2021 so if you haven’t made your reservation prior to that date you may not be eligible for the discounted rate nor be guaranteed a room.
Book your room by calling the hotel directly at (719) 873-5600 and mention Driving for Kids rather than the 800 number as the generic reservation service may not have the special rates for our group readily available.
Deposit and Cancellation Policies: The room price will be due in full on booking. Any cancellations received more than seventy two (72) hours prior to arrival will receive a full refund. No refunds are given for early departure.
Again, to reserve a room, please call the front desk at the hotel directly: (719) 873-5600 and say you are with Driving for Kids for the special rate.
