We always take trips to Estes Park. One of the most beautiful places to go in CO. Everything was perfect! I would recommend going to any one I know. The place was gorgeous. Everything we were looking for in a weekend get a way!

I love this place! First - all that is good. When you stay here you know you are in the Rocky Mountains. I don't think any other lodging in Estes Park does that. The lobby is right out of a picture book and so is the porch where you can enjoy a drink. The pool and hot tub are fantastic.... More

The unit needs serious updating and repaired. Coffee table broken, blinds broken, no a/c, no maid service and over priced for the property. Will not be back to this property, but will be back to Estes! LOVE Estes Park!! FYI; Murphy's Resort much better value & nicer property!

No air in rooms. Nice location but rooms dated. Food good intestsurant and nice bar with view of town. I would not stay here again. They asked for info prior to checkin but nothing was done I asked for (birthday surprise). Coffee maker did not work but they did have coffee downstairs.

We really enjoyed our stay at Crags Lodge. I wanted to especially endorse their restaurant, The View, which overlooks downtown Estes. Their new chef and team have some incredible dishes. My daughter loved the Brie soup with truffles. A dry aged steak and fresh trout entrees were prepared to perfection. We finished with a huge peach cobbler that was out... More

Ann is wonderful to have at the front desk. She is very welcoming. Our dinner was amazing and we were given a peach cobbler because our meal took a little longer than they wanted. It was great. I would definitely come back. Room 310 was great.

The room we were given was so small clattered with oversized sofa bed, coffee table and a dining table. No room to lay even small suitcases. The room smelled musty with a combination of urine. We could hear all the music, conversation, bathroom noise from next doors. On top of that, they told us that there is no housekeeping service... More

I am a Diamond Resorts owner and this isn't the quality I expected from the resort. Don't get me wrong, I love old hotels for the character, but when the heat/ ac and showers don't work properly this doesn't make me happy. I could care less about the decor, but the shower was either ice cold or scolding hot. It... More

Although the rooms are small, the staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The hotel has a large lobby area with a billiards table, games, books and dvds. There's a beautiful outdoor pool and hot tub. We stayed in room 303 that had good outside air circulation. Estes Park is a great small town with a terrific river walk, restaurants and... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night on a quick trip we took to Estes Park. Our rate was reasonable (booked through Hotels.com), and there was a $5 resort fee charged on top of our rate at the hotel (that was disclosed when we booked, although as others have said I'm not sure what the resort fee really...
