Spent a week here over the Easter Holiday with family members. Wonderful staff, great buffet on Easter Sunday, pleasant locals and little girls in Easter finery. One of the best Easter's I recall. I love this place!

This hotel is right on Estes Park Lake. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is showing its age and not really in a charming way. It does have a full service bar and restaurant. Our favorite things about this hotel is the lake views with Rocky Mountain Park in the background. And the 4 mile paved walking or... More

Thank you for staying with us while on your way to CU.

We came to Estes for a quick weekend getaway; we found a great rate at this resort. The resort was gorgeous and has views to die for. Front desk staff was not overly friendly- never smiled and when we asked for a good dining option off property, their reply was "i dont know". The hot tub was freezing cold the... More

Wonderful stay at the Estes Park Resort. The room had a view to die for overlooking the lake and the mountains. The meal at the restaurant was one of the best we have ever experienced. Each dish was a culinary delight. The staff was attentive and polite. We will be back!

My wife and I stayed here one night recently after a day of snow shoeing at Rocky Mountain National Park.

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.

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.
