The appropriately-named Good Inn is, in fact, quite a good choice for accommodation. This small hotel began in the owner’s house and has thus far been expanded to 10 rooms.
Almost every aspect of the hotel was designed by the owner himself and the rooms decorated by his wife, an artist featured in Tbilisi’s Museum of Modern Art. Each room has at least one of her paintings on the walls. All rooms have satellite TV – a rarity in Gudauri – and the price includes a breakfast and dinner buffet.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated with a modern look and comfortable chairs, and is a nice place to get to know the other guests. They serve delicious homemade wine and chacha made by the owner and a variety of food for reasonable prices. An outdoor patio with lounge chairs is open on sunny days. A jewelry cabinet selling local, handmade trinkets is in the entryway next to the ski depot, which has a heater under the boot rack. Heated boot racks are surprisingly uncommon in Gudauri.
Rooms range in price from $50 to $340 depending on the size of room and peak season. The largest room, a suite, can comfortably fit up to 6 people, and singles, doubles, triples, and family rooms are also available. All room have a very aesthetically pleasing wooden finish. This hotel isn’t directly on the slopes, but a trail connects it to the lowest lift (Pirveli) in about a 7 minute walk.
