Worst hotel experience of my life. Management is apparently non-existent. According to other reviews, the management lives out of state....SERIOUSLY???!! How can you run a hotel from out of state. Well...obviously not very well. Our room was not ready, we were asked to come back at 4:00. Came back at 4:00 and were given keys to the room. Upon entering,... More

This hotel meets basic needs. Rooms are quite big and it has all you need. Bathrooms are small. It is in a great location which has you close to all the shopping areas of Estes Park. Breakfast was minimal but enough to get you in the road though not much room to sit and eat it. Easy to,pick to and... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. Our location gives easy access to downtown Estes Park as well as Rocky Mountain National Park. Your Room Tip is right on point - the stairs to the second floor rooms can be difficult with heavy luggage. More

It was brightly painted, had nice landscaping, nice pool. The hotel was busy for summer vacation, the hotel staff was very nice. There was ample parking. There was a breakfast of sorts available, but we didn't use it. Now, as to our room...we booked at the last minutes--the day we arrived, on a Friday night! Not a wise move. So... More

Thank you for your TripAdvisor report on your stay with us. This is our busy time of year and I am afraid late reservations do not get our nicer rooms. I am very concerned about the electrical deficiencies you found in your room. This will be brought to the attention of our maintenance staff. Thank you for your complements on... More

We did wait too long to book. Our usual hotel in Estes Park Colorado was unavailable for one of the days of our stay. We thought we would try to save some money, so we booked through Hotwire. We arrived about an hour and a half early, and were allowed to check in. I asked about a balcony, but was... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. We have had trouble with some of the online booking systems and are trying to get them better integrated with our reservation system. This is the busiest part of our season and, unfortunately, our nicer rooms get booked first. The balcony rooms are often the first to go. I... More

My husband and I and our two young children stayed here recently. Other family was in the area camping, but we decided to stay at this hotel instead. That was a mistake. When we were checking in, there was a woman at the front desk complaining about the cleanliness of her room and asking to be moved. That should have... More

My wife and I along with our three children decided to spend the 4th of July weekend in estes. When I called the front desk to make a reservation (despite the last minute planning) they were able to find a room adequate to accommodate us comfortably. When we arrived we were greeted with friendly faces and checked in promptly. We... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was small, but had a frig/mic with an amazing view of the mountains. The grounds were beautifully kept with horseshoes, picnic tables, grill and swimming pool. A hot breakfast in the morning was a great way to start the day. Highly recommend.

We booked this hotel many months ago and were rather apprehensive in view of some of the negative comments on Tripadvisor. However we were very pleasantly surprised. We were given a ground floor room, as requested, and although fairly basic, it was spacious and very clean, with a fridge and microwave. We spent a few hours by the pool, which... More

This is a basic hotel that is fine if you're planning on spending all of your time outside. Rooms are dark, small, and cramped, but clean. Beds and pillows were not super comfortable for us. Service is friendly but very slow at the desk every time I went. Breakfast is very basic and may need to be supplemented in town.... More

We arrived in town around 6:00 p.m. and there were very few vacancies. We were lucky to get a room but I would have preferred to stay back in Boulder. The rooms were very small,drab but adequate. The lobby was tiny but they did offer a continental breakfast for guests. We did not try it. Also parking is limited if... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay with us. Since our motel and many others were nearly full, the rooms left were not the pick of the litter. If you should have another opportunity to visit Estes Park, with advance reservations we could provide you a room much more to your liking. We appreciate your comment about... More
