We stayed in a King-bed suite in early September. It was quite nice but rather tired. Check-in was fast and the staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly. The suite was quite large, but the bedroom rather small and we had nowhere In the bedroom to put and open up our two quite large suitcases (we were on a... More

I had such a great time here, the staff was very friendly and are always quick to lend a hand. And the view my room was incredible. Every evening I was treated to elk bathing in the lake. Seriously one of the best vacations I have taken in a long time. Largely in part due to the amazing views the... More

Recently held a wedding here and I would not recommend anyone hold any event at this location. Service is poor and the attitude of management is worse. With the pricing they charge you would think some service would be included. The day after the wedding I left a message for the GM, 3 day's late,r after an email sent by... More

We chose this resort as the location for our wedding reception. During our 10 month engagement we worked with THREE different wedding coordinators (no they didn’t have more than 1 one on staff, they just couldn’t keep anyone there very long) and after our wedding there was a new one brought in. The wedding coordinator we did work with was... More

Great place. Rooms are pretty clean. Restaurant service and staff were great. It is such a beautiful place for a family kids too. One disappointment was I made a reservation by phone and specified which room and level we would like but we checked in later in the day and it was not available. They did work in a balcony... More

This hotel has an excellent location. It is on the Estes Lake and it has a 3.5 mile excellent walking path that starts from the hotel. Other than that the hotel was at minimum, average. Pricey for what there is. We had two rooms during our stay. Both rooms (so I assume all rooms) had the wash sink in the... More

We enjoyed our stay here so much 2 years ago that we decided to come back. Our room facing Lake Estes was comfortable, clean, and attractive, and the view was wonderful. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful. The location was a little tricky to find, so look for their sign near the marina on Big Thompson Road.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here. The front desk staff was incredibly helpful and polite. The one person that stands out above all the the others was the bar manager, James Kocer. He was short staffed and did an amazing job taking care of people at the bar. During our visit, there was a wedding party and it was... More

We were on a weekend getaway to see the festival and we decided to head to the bar. There was a filled room of a wedding party and the dinner crowd filled the dinning room. A young man tending the bar was running the whole place. His name was James Kocer, he was in great spirits even though he was... More

Excellent Stay! Water view with 2 balconies thanks to Kevin Johnson who also added our AAA discount on check in. Nicole Cesare, at the front desk, was so helpful by sharing what local things to do and always smiling plus keeping the fresh cookie and coffee bin full. James Kocer was a tireless waiter!
