Creel proved to be most “citified” of the communities we visited in the Copper Canyon. We found a bank where we could access cash, a number of restaurants and coffee opportunities, a laundry and even a coin operated car wash.
For our reserve-ahead lodging prior to our departure, we discovered Best Western The Lodge at Creel. The accommodations were lovely with an in-room fireplace to keep us toasty warm in spite of the icy November weather.
The dining room was cheery and the food delightful. There was even a hot tub in a common guest area.
