Diamond has put considerable effort into improving this 100 year old lodge. We stayed here in 2011, and it was not very good at all. A mouse in our room, for instance; but the gracious staff moved us to another room. We stopped by last fall, without staying, and checked out the improvements. After doing so, we decided to stay...

We went up for a quick one night get-away. The main floor was historic, rustic, and charming. The desk clerk was kind and friendly. We stayed in a room below the restaurant dining room,. It looked out onto a tree covered slope and across the valley and parts of downtown. There is noise from the dining room in the evening,... More

We stayed here the 4th of July week 2014 and had a great time. Our room faced north overlooking the mountains and town. People at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. Do not understand some of the negative comments. Only downside was the shower. Hot and cold water fluctuated. The restaurant was pricey but very good quality. Will... More

Recently spent 3 nights there in July. I booked a studio from Expedia and was given an efficiency studio at the studio price. After driving a very long drive to reach Estes Park, I let it go. I felt the front desk was rude. I had read they were very friendly but that was not my experience. They never spoke... More

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
