This is an old lodge, looks pretty good on the first floor but thats it. Our room was very small (after begging to be moved from a minuscule one) and looked like it was furnished from a shabby thrift store. It overlooked a very noisy parking lot where bears root through the garbage at night to a sometimes audience of... More

We spent 7 days at this Lodge as it was their 100 birthday on July 4th 2014. Staff is very nice, our room was great. Pool and hot tube were great. Will stay there again. This is a time share resort, BUT, there are NO time share presentations, ever.! If you like a lodge style hotel be sure to check... More

Great place and location. Staff very friendly (maybe a bit too much is you are tired and want to check in quick). Location great: top of a small hill, nice views, only 5 minutes from town. Rooms had plenty of space, small frig, microwave, sink, coffee maker. Need to understand that this is an older historical resort so room layouts... More

Located on a scenic bluff overlooking the village of Estes Park, this hotel features a defunct main building where half the rooms have a view of a parking lot! The plumbing thoughout the building is in constant flux; we spent three nights "showering" with ice buckets, filling them with ice cold water and scalding water by turns. It was worse... More

We loved staying at the Crags Resort. The room was very clean & having a refrig & kitchen was great. The hotel dining room had great service & food. Beautiful Mountain views. We also used the very clean hot tub & pool. The staff was very helpful.

We stayed here with our family for a week. Loved that it was near town but not IN town and very close to Rocky Mountain National Park. It is up the hill from Fun City which meant my kids begged to go almost every day ;) but I know how to handle that. The lodge exterior and interior lobby are... More

It was our first stay at the Crags but not our first time to Estes Park - we really enjoy Rocky Mountain National Park. Overall, we were disappointed given the price. The hotel is 100 years old this year, and the lobby area was pretty, with a friendly, professional check in clerk. But the room had decorating from the 70s,... More

We liked this hotel but it is extremely compact. If you are staying for 7 nights like we did and planning on cooking in house, I would not recommend it. If your stay is 2 or three nights, it will suffice. It has a great heated pool and spa and great customer service.

We love to stay at this resort whenever we are visiting this area. The staff is very friendly and always greets you with a smile. Mark, the resort manager, is always willing to stop and chant and make you feel welcome. We love the location, the charm of the old building, the huge fireplace in the lobby, and the atmosphere...

We loved this resort from Day one! The staff was pleasant and welcoming, and very eager to answer any questions, as well as resolve any issues which came up . Although many local attractions were closed in the off season, hot-tubbing in the snow was a real treat! The pool table, free videos and laundry services were appreciated, and we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The lodge is ideally located in the heart of Estes Park on the north side of Prospect Mountain and only minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. Breathtaking mountain views surround you making this the prefect location for your mountain wedding.The landscape of Rocky Mountain National Park is the steepest in the United States. Sixty mountain peaks over 12,000 feet high result in world-renown scenery and provide challenges for hikers and climbers. The extreme topography creates an amazing range of ecological zones within a short distance, similar to the changes that would be seen in a drive from Denver to northern Alaska. ... more   less
