Planning for your trip


Getting to Leadville

To get here from i70, get off at the Copper exit and continue straight up 91. Continue 24, beautiful miles until you pull into downtown Leadville. We are at the end of Harrison, on the left. The motel is black and we have a bright (vintage) lit-up sign. Note that there is no cell service between Copper and Leadville, and the roads can be dicey in the winter. We strongly recommend four-wheel drive and snow tires.


Free, On-site Parking for hotel guests

Because our space is limited, please park only one car per room on our lot. We have overflow parking immediately behind the motel for additional cars or trailers. To access additional parking, turn east (toward Wild Bill’s) on 2nd Avenue, and take a left into the Casa Blanca Parking lot. Please park in the back, behind the black house. Give us a call if you have questions about this!



A few days before your reservation, you will receive an email with your room information and door code. On the morning of your reservation, you will also receive an automated text with this information. Feel free to let yourself right into your room when you arrive. Your door code will begin working at 4 PM on the day of check-in and stop working at 10 AM on check-out. To light up the keypad, touch the lock button.

Tips for traveling at high altitude

At 10,152 feet, Leadville, CO, is the highest city in America. This gives us incredible views, amazing snow, and very thin air. Here are a few tips to avoid the side effects of traveling at altitude.

  • Hydration is key! Experts recommend drinking twice as much water at high elevations than at lower altitudes.
  • Avoid alcohol and heavy exercise for the first 48 hours after ascending above 8,000 feet. (womp womp)
  • Sleeping at altitude can be tricky. A sleep aid can help you adjust but always consult your doctor first. 
  • Plan ahead and discuss medications with your doctor: Medicines can help prevent altitude sickness; consult your doctor based on your medical history and trip plans.
  • Recognize altitude illness symptoms: Headaches, fatigue, nausea, and lack of appetite are common; seek lower elevation if symptoms worsen.

For more information about traveling and living at high altitudes and altitude-related sickness, visit the CDC website.
