I stayed here during the off season for a very reasonable rate. The room was clean, comfortable, and had a rustic theme. The bed was comfortable. The room window looks out at beautiful mountain views (which are tough to miss in Estes Park). Unfortunately, the window also looks out onto the walkway, so you must choose views or privacy. The...

We have stayed at this property for several years when we go to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park in the fall to see the aspens and hear the elk bugling. The management always makes us feel so welcome; they can't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the complimentary breakfasts are adequate,... More

We have stayed here twice now. Both times we found rooms were clean, quiet. It is conveniently located and easy access to RMNP. We found it to be well priced and appreciated that it was pet friendly. It isn't a five star plush hotel, but clean and we'll maintained. Exactly as expected for the price.

It was a short stay at Estes park but the hotel was fantastic. Has a cabin type feel. Very clean room and you could see the rocky mountains from the room. The view is simply amazing. Would definitely go back.

Comfortable, clean room with a great view. What I liked best about this hotel was the friendly and helpful staff. Enrique was very helpful, suggesting different day trips, advising on the road conditions due to the floods in September, and sharing information about Estes Park. It was a treat to walk out every morning to a magnificent view of the... More

This is a motel. The rooms are adequate in size, the western décor fits, the view from the window is great. The washer&dryer in the service building came in handy. There's a pool and hot tub, closed when I stayed at the end of September. The breakfast is a bit Spartan, but your room is clean and comfortable.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of our property. We love the mountain, pine furniture in the hotel rooms. It goes very well with the surrounding mountains. Our pool, as well as one of our hot tubs, is seasonal. However, we do have one hot tub that is open year round. We truly appreciate... More

Typical gateway town motel room, decor is "rustic" but clean. Shower is adequately hot and pressurized. Could stand a bit more lighting in the bathroom and sink area. WiFi free and strong in my room and sufficiently fast for light browsing and video. Bed comfy. Breakfast is very bare bones, only toast/bagels/oatmeal/hardboiled eggs/fruit. Safeway aupermarket right down the street, as... More

We found out about the annual Scottish/Irish Festival about a month before the event and while trying to find accommodations we found most of the hotels in the area already booked solid. This hotel still had rooms available. I was quoted a price of $152 per night and told that if I cancelled there would be a $20 cancellation fee.... More
