We stayed in the motel part of this lodging for one night and really enjoyed watching the hummingbirds feeding in the multiple feeders just outside our room. There were two chairs where we could sit and enjoy the views and watch the birds. Delightful! The room was dated and the king bed not real comfortable but it was fine for... More

I stayed at the Courtyard Cabins last weekend. At first the place seemed perfect, except for the fact they were not cabins but rows of rooms! Full size refrigerator and fully stocked kitchen, everything was clean (although I wondered about the dishes, since they insist everyone clean there own dishes, so you wonder how clean they really were!). Then, evening... More

I stayed here for a friend's wedding - It was a lovely place to experience Grand Lake, soak in the view and see the town. No complaints at all - the staff were helpful, rooms were clean and a great size with all the necessary items.

We have stayed quite a few times at the Western Riviera and they have nice units, most with lake views. The kitchens are mostly complete and they have gas grills outside. I would give them an excellent except for the attitude with the rules posted in the units. "Please wash your dishes before you leave! You will be charged $25... More

My husband and I spent two nights here in mid-March and the location is perfect. Quiet this time of year, right on the lake, and within walking distance of everything on the main drag. We were here to ski at the nordic center, and snowshoe in the park...all very close to drive to. The place itself is dated, but that's... More

I was supposed to be in Estes Park for this stay but the September flooding made that impossible. Instead of this being a negative it was turned into a wonderful experience. If you are going to this area you should check this place out.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful.The rooms were perfect for experiencing a cozy mountain vacation, with their own kitchenettes, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator. There is a separate room from the living room, which had an extra large comfortable bed. There is a T.V. in the bedroom and in the living room there is a large flat screen T.V,... More

We were unable to get to Estes Park on the night of 12th September because of the floods. Our last possible point of entry via the Trail Ridge Road was not attempted following advice from the park rangers so we were stranded in Grand Lake and needed a hotel fast. We stumbled on this hotel after the chamber of commerce... More

Highly recommend the motel. Beautiful lake view from umbrella tables on the deck. Walk to any place in town without moving your car. We were supposed to go to Estes Park, but the evacuation caused us to change our plans. Ann at Western Riviera was so helpful, as was all of the staff. Grand Lake is a wonderful town with... More
