Just spent 5 days at this establishment. A few things you should know - (1) when you make a reservation here you are charged for the entire duration of your reservation - before arrival; (2) if you book for multiple days you can cancel before arrival (if done in time), but once you check in you cannot cancel without losing...

We went to Estes Park as a family to listen to the elk bugle and decided to make a weekend of it and stay at this hotel. It is very inexpensive and it shows. I waited in the front Lobby to check in for 10 minutes before anyone showed up (I called the hotel phone and it rang in the... More

Everything was just fine. Reception people were very helpful. Free shuttle had its stop steps away. Room was clean and well maintained (though, one has to put a sign up if in need of cleaning). Wi-Fi was reliable. Breakfast was pretty good for this type of accommodation. I liked them having "quite hours" policy, which allowed for good rest.

Stayed here on a one night stay -- worried because of the reviews, but it was our only choice. The place was clean in our opinion. We had 2 rooms -- one was tiny -- I'm talking you need to back into the bathroom to use the bathroom. -- the other one was a "handicap" room so it was bigger.... More

Thank you for your comments concerning your recent stay with us. There should have been soap and shampoo in your bathroom. It was an oversight by housekeeping to have overlooked that. I apologize for the confusion when you checked in and found that your room was still being serviced by housekeeping. Our staff needs to better coordinate the room availability.... More

Great little place in Estes Park to stay for a night or two. You get what you pay for people - this is not the Ritz or even the Westin. It's a basic place to lay your head for a night or two, run by some friendly folks. It's clean, and parking is right outside the door to your room!... More

I was a little nervous about staying here after reading the reviews, but for the price I decided it was worth a try since we were only going to be here one night anyway. This place was easily 30 or 40 dollars cheaper than every other place in Estes Park. Especially if you sign up for the value club membership... More

I recently stayed here on a quick business trip to Estes Park, CO. The rooms are little dated but very clean. My remote control did not work for the TV.

I got a really good rate on three nights at this property thru "hotwire" The location is it's strength...it's got great views, & is minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park. That being said, everything else connected to my stay can be summed up in the one word "adequate." the Inn is definetly on the older side of things. Lighting... More
