Some people have complained here about the high beds. If you are of average height, you will be fine. Our room (#107) was large. It was too hot to use the fireplace (not sure why I requested one in August!). Upon check-in, we were told it had a view of the lake, but as it turned out you could only... More

This is as good as any 4 star hotel I have ever stayed at. When you think of a first class mountain lodge with all the trimmings this is the place you should think of. And it's at a fair price of under $200 for an incredible lake and mountain view. I'm usually pretty frugal, but this one was worth... More

This is a rustic themed hotel. It had nice touches like bath salt and lotion. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. The doors don't have dead bolt locks but we did notice a security camera in the hallway. Seemed like a safe area so we weren't worried. Free breakfast we skipped.

Very friendly staff. Room had two Queen-sized beds. Large refrigerator. Free wifi available even in rooms. Complimentary breakfast was served in the bar/lounge area that had great views of the lake. Shower water stream was somewhat slow, but that could have been due to the nozzle. TV was not HD.

We visit Rocky Mountain National Park nearly every year and this is our favorite place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the happy hour drinks are a great value, and the staff is friendly. We were pleasantly surprised with the free continental breakfast. It was a nice upgrade from the usual cold pastries and coffee found at chain... More

Rooms were great. Food was also very good. Good complimentary breakfast. Great place to start to go into the Park. Make sure you leave early as some places at the other side of the park are really busy in peak times.

I had my doubts when we arrived around 7:30. There was a live band in the bar on the main level that was quite loud when we came in but we took the elevator to our room on the second floor and when we got into our room we couldn't hear anything. we had a rollaway order and it was... More

The people were very nice. The place is very cute, and the rooms very cozy and have a rustic chic air . It is locate in an area that makes walking to the shops and restaurants very accessible. Nice weekend!

The place is done in a outdoors theme, wood, unique outdoors theme. Rooms are good, beds were fine, great bar with happy hour drinks. Outdoor patio was great, lots of locals dropped by after work, not just us tourists:). In the evening they will light the fire pits and provide you the ingredients for Smores! Local Moose was in the... More

It was a nice hotel and you did not have to always deal with the town traffic. I had been hoping for a lake view but was told there were none but some rooms did have a glimpse of the lake. By all means try to get a balcony. Really clean nice rooms. We enjoyed our stay. Most of the... More
