Got lucky at the Estes Park Resort and had beautiful views of the lake and mountains (when the weather cleared!) and a wonderful restaurant where every dish we tried was excellent. Staff was very accommodating even though it was a challenging weekend for them and for the traveler's who got caught snowbound. A great place for that to happen.

We booked our wedding in September 2014 for Valentines Day 2015. From the beginning to the end, everything was perfect. Our wedding planner Sophia was so helpful and nice, always availble for our questions. I am still amazed how they made my day as stress free as possible!! I literally had zero stress on our special day!! Our room was... More

This place is absolutely amazing! The mountains are picture perfect, the lake is beautiful, people are friendly and the resort is awesome.

We've stayed at the Estes Park Resort several times in recent years. We so enjoy the fabulous views of Long's Peak and mountains of Rocky Mountain National Park. Very courteous staff... couldn't be more helpful! On-site restaurant and bar are superb, cozy fireplace. Such a restful spot to relax. The resort was nicely updated throughout in 2012.

This is definitely the place to stay if you want a wonderfully, relaxing weekend! Our room was comfortable and clean, the view of the lake was lovely, and staff were more than helpful and delightful. We are already planning our next stay.

This resort is beautiful and has very pleasant and helpful staff. Our room overlooked the water and the view made for a very enjoyable stay. The dining room and bar have a nice variety of food and drink as well as very nice servers and a bartender by the name of Jeff who was a joy to talk with.

We stayed for 3 nights in December and were a bit let down. It appeared to be much more than it is in the way of an elegant or luxury hotel as the website says. We usually stay at 4 star hotels when vacationing and this was not up to the standard we find elsewhere. It's just a bit worn... More
