On short notice I called the front desk manager to ask about our options for a one day retreat for 15 people (since we live in Estes we did not need to spend the night). We started our day with an amazing brunch buffet and spent the afternoon and evening in the hospitality suite (yes, we all fit very comfortably).... More

The Estes Park Resort is in a beautiful location overlooking Lake Estes and Longs Peak. I was planning a special weekend for my husband's 50th birthday and did my research on Trip Advisor. 95% of the reviews for this Resort were great and I loved the thought of having a room overlooking the lake. So I called the Resort directly... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Estes Park Resort while attending a wedding in April, which is shoulder season in the mountains. I was surprised at the $135 per night we were meant to pay for a basic room on the lower level of the building. But not as surprised by the strange room layout. The bathroom... More

First and foremost the entire trip was awesome. But the folks at the Estes Park Resort were off the chain GREAT. James, Ilona, Kyle, Kari and those I may have forgotten the names. Service, food you name it all were A+. The staff made our trip Five Star. We will be back and bring more friends. Can't say enough for... More

We took a quick break to Estes this past weekend and chose this hotel so if the weather got snowy, we could at least swim indoors. We arrived on Friday to learn that the pool had been drained for reprinting, refilled on Friday and was colder than the Lake outside. It never got warm enough to use, so we used... More

Hi Claire, Thank you for being our guest! I am so sorry to hear the pool did not warm up quickly enough for you to enjoy it as planned! We took multiple steps to try and ensure this would not happen - but we apparantly did not achieve our goal for this area. Please accept my apology. We are one... More

What a wonderful hotel! So glad we chose this place to stay. Our room looked over the lake and had the chance to watch the local wildlife while sitting out on the deck.

The staff at the hotel were amazing. They helped out with anything we needed. The only problems we had were that the pool was really cold and barely seemed heated. The hot tub wasn't very hot. I take my baths hotter than the hot tub. The biggest issue we had was that the walls are paper thin. We wanted to... More

We held our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner at the Estes Park Resort and it couldn't have been more perfect. From the caring staff who helped us decorate and made sure every need was met, to the view from the Mezzanine windows (fantastic background for pics!) to the delicious food (chef even customized a dish for our vegan friends), we highly...

Nice hotel, enjoyed the staff members. Got there a bit early but couldn't check in due to the fact that there were many rooms being turned over and few housekeepers. The front desk attendant was courteous, funny, made our stay pleasant as best he could. We received a 'garden view' room, which is funny because I never thought a concrete... More
