We had a nice stay at Estes Park. The room is clean and nice. It's a lovely area, we had a good night sleep and enjoyed the breakfast next day, it was a little bit crowded at breakfast, would be nice with more tables.

We were able to have our dog! Nice and close to Estes. Had our teenagers with us and although they were in a separate room, they were still close to us. Very clean! Host of hotel very nice. There had been a problem with our booking through a third party and it was taken care of immediately.

This is an average hotel room and with nice views of the peaks. It was clean and quiet. Big back open space yard to walk your dog. It was near the town and restaurants but you still need a car. Good value in a town with lots of high prices!

We booked this hotel months in advance for our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. The outside of the property is tired and worn looking. Big hunks of mud from someone's boots remained on the carpeted stairs for two days, then presumably became part of the property, as there was little evidence that those stairs were ever vacuumed. Our room... More

I am very sorry that you had all the electrical problems that you described. It sounds like relocating to another room would have been appropriate though during high season availability can be a problem. Laura is our general manager and acted properly by offering you a discount. I will follow up with her to see why the refund was not... More

The views from the motel are beautiful. We got into our room and noticed the heat was on in the bathroom, which was odd for August. My husband took the thermistat down and noticed the battery was dead. He took the device to the lobby and they gave him new batteries. That didn't fix the problem. The manager had to... More

We were quite pleased with the rate here, in a resort town full of tourists, we got a nice spacious room for under $100. There are tons of motel rooms in Estes Park. If you want an inexpensive room you won't do better. There is an outdoor pool, mountain views, free wi-fi, microwave & fridge, basic breakfast to get you... More

My husband and I stayed one night on our way to Montana. the positives are that it is close to everything and the folks are really nice. Negatives were the room was kind of old and needs updated and no one is in the office until 7:00 am. Would have liked to have breakfast before hitting the road. Nice place... More

Thank you for noting our good location and friendly staff. We are working, as time and finances permit, to upgrade the rooms and furnishings. I will check with resident management regarding the breakfast schedule. I would hope that your early departure could have been accommodated. More

To tell the truth, this would be the last place I ever stay again. Do to circumstances for the Rocky Mountain Marathon, this was where we ended up. Issues with wrong room type and being assigned an occupied room was the beginning. The bathroom (if you can call it that), was right out of the fifty's. The bed was very... More

I am sorry you found our accommodations so unsatisfactory. I will speak with the on-site management regarding room type which may have been limited due to high occupancy. Sending you to an already occupied room will also be addressed. We are endeavoring to improve our guest experience and your comments will help us concentrate on those areas that need attention.

You do not need use one bus from hotel to Visitor center and wait for Hiker bus to Rocky mountain national park. So everything very convenient. Second- people at property very kind and... More

This was an ok place to spend 1 night but I wouldn't want to spend multiple nights. Beds were extremely hard! We did appreciate the service of the front desk person/(onsite manager I believe)in sharing her personal supply of chex cereal as there was nothing gluten free I could eat on the breakfast buffet
