When we made our reservations at The Historic Crags we were anticipating a great experience; while it was nice we were not overjoyed. We spent two nights there.There is no air conditioning, the pool was being built, the rooms was not cleaned every day. In addition there was a wedding reception on Friday and Saturday; since we had to have... More

Stifling hot in June. Beware NO AC. Lodge studios are small but very clean and adequately furnished. New beds are comfortable. Ceiling and portable fans are not adequate for over 90 degree weather. Rocky Mountain NP very close. Good restaurants nearby. Would be great for a couple of nights if it had AC or if you came when the weather... More

Stayed for a night during off season with another friend. Property is quite dated with not much facilities. Room was decent but very thin wall and quite warm. Also, when you book a one bedroom suite...don't expect a true suite. This is more like a regular room with a half partition wall dividing between the bedroom and a sofa bed.... More

Stayed here for a week in a two bedroom, two bath unit on the second floor. The decor is outdated but that wasn't a problem since it was clean and had great views. They were just finishing changing out the beds with new ones in all the units. Some have complained of hard beds in the past. My only problem... More

Stayed here over a beautiful Colorado early spring weekend. The hotel was very quiet and peaceful. Loved to just have the windows open and let the cool breeze from the moutains blow in. Rooms could get warm. We just kept the windows open during the day. At night, we closed the windows and cranked up the ceiling fan. Slept like... More

This was a great place to stay. I wish I could have stayed more than one night, but I was just passing through. I will agree with others that the room was too warm, but that better than being too cold with the snow on the ground outside. A coyote howled seemingly feet from the window and we were woke... More

Myself and three other friends stayed here for spring break inMarch 2011, the low season in the area. Crag's was the cheapest and probably one of the nicest places to stay for this time of year. For as old as the building is, it is in exceptional condition and has been retrofitted and preserved appropriately. The staff wasn't really there,... More

We booked the Crag through Travelocity for a weekend in December. The hotel is a timeshare, so they have a small fridge and microwave in each room. The accomodations were very comfortable and staff was super friendly. The hotel is "rustic" but very neat and clean. Would absolutely book here again. Hotel is about 1 miles from the Rocky Mountain... 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
