Lodge room was pretty basic: 2 semi comfortable queen beds, basic furnishings, NO TV. Think "super 8" except for over $100 a night (off season) I naively expected more. I get that this is a recreational area and guests aren't supposed to want luxuries like a TV or a king bed, but we were there for a wedding and it... More

The YMCA of the Estes is an awesome family vacation destination!! Lots to do for all ages - hiking, swimming, crafts, games, campfires, hayrides, horseback riding, roller skating, open gym (and outside facilities too) for basketball and volleyball, free mini golf, etc. There is a variety of lodging choices from cabins and vacation homes, to modern lodges and basic lodges...

This place is not a resort--let's get that out of the way--so no 5 stars for Stickley furniture and personal chefs. It is fantastic for families, especially with kids. Very safe, clean, friendly and of course well-situated. You can make as much or as little of your stay as you like. Just chill, or get involved with lots of activities.... More

My son and I made our first visit at the end of April 2015. I plan to return. I'm a single mom and found the YMCA of the Rockies while searching online for inexpensive kid-friendly vacations spots I could drive to from Texas. We went off-peak season because it was cheaper and I figured it would be less crowded. This... More

Hotel is clean and comfortable for this type of accommodation. There are great services and activities to do on site. We really enjoyed the setting, the majestic views of the Rockies, the fresh air and the people we met there.

The cabins are absolutely wonderful! Most of them have a refrigerator and a decent microwave. The beds are clean, with fresh sheets, bedspreads, and pillow cases. The windows look out to GREAT views. There are normally small side tables provided to put things on, and there are working lights in every room. There is fully functioning, running water in all... More

Wonderful facility and location for a retreat or family gathering. Our accomodations and selections were of a hotel / dorm room accomodations with cafeteria plan dining. It offered convenience to a large family gathering and space for the whole group to gather. Plenty to do, great location to the park and town, yet out own it's own just under the... More

Quiet and relaxing and peaceful. Wonderful supportive environment. Loved the wood burning fireplace and the elk and the moose wandering by and climbing mountains and playing mini gold and scrabble we rented from the activities building.

The YMCA of the Rockies is a perfect spot for a vacation with kids--kind of like a summer camp for families. The cabins are rustic but clean and allow families to have more room at a price lower than a hotel room of the same size. The cabin came equipped with a full kitchen and free wi-fi, which is nice,...

I've stayed at this location numerous times over the last 5 years and each time becomes increasingly worse. At first, I was thrilled with the great views and affordable(ish) accommodations. As time went on though, I experienced more and more issues. For example, you don't know what kind of beds you will get in the cabins. It could be a... More
