I was worried about this being on Hwy 34, but it actually was nice and quiet. It's nothing fancy but the price was right and it suited us fine since we were out most of the day. We stayed for three nights. It is an adult only hotel, but the river is small and the neighboring resort cabins are immediately... More

This was our first stay at this property, when checking in we were delighted to meet the owner and learn they were orginially from Kansas about an hour away from where we live! How cool! He made great recommendations on restaurants and food! We enjoyed the suggestions and tried several! The location is amazing!! Very close to the entrance of... More

We were in room 200, which had a King in the loft and a sleeper couch in the living room down below. 1/2 bath upstairs, and a full bath down, along with a microwave and refrigerator. Room was clean, and the location very convenient to town, and to RMNP. It was perfect for us!

What a perfect stay! We spent 3 nights here and it was everything the reviews stated. Friendly check in service and our room, 106, was very clean and large with personal touches. Fridge with freezer was handy. We requested a second floor room because someone recommended a view. That wasn't available, and we were very happy with the first floor... More

Even though this resort is dated, it is very clean and a good value. We had a room facing the river which I would recommend. They provide grills, picnic tables and lots of lounge chairs in order to sit next to the river which was nice. The resort has a DVD player in the rooms and offer free check out... More

This is a great place for R+R only 3 mi from the entrance to Rocky Mt NP. Most rooms face onto the lovely grassed area along the Fall River - small waterfall along property. Rooms are immaculate and very comfortable, homey in style. Each room has a table and chairs under a covered roof for dining or river viewing outside.... More

We were here in July when the roof top rodeo was in town. We have stayed here several times and will continue to stay at Deercrest . The staff and management were excellent. The place is well kept and is close to shopping and close to the north entrance of Rocky National Park. The resort is on Fall River and... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on a hiking trip to RMNP. Deer Crest Resort is conveniently located to the park. We used two different entrances - one to Bear Creek Trailhead which was about a 25 min drive (due to low speed limit in the park) and the Fall River entrance to the park to drive... More

My wife and I stayed in the Bear Den (room 200) for two nights - Monday and Tuesday, July 27th and 28th. The Bear Den unit is a loft bedroom with a half bath upstairs and full bath downstairs. It is a very comfortable unit. You walk in to a rustic 2 story loft that has an extremely comfortable sectional... More

Hello Jim. Thank you for your repeat visit and for taking the time to write about your most recent stay at Deer Crest Resort. You described room 200 (actually it is called the Old Man Mountain King Loft Suite) perfectly. We named the room after the name of the Mountain just behind Deer Crest, Old Man Mountain. You can google... More

This is one of our favorite places to stay. Located just far enough out of town. Rooms are always clean and the whole property is very well maintained. Nothing better then sitting by the river reading a book or just taking nap. You can walk to town or walk about 50 yards to the shuttle stop. Staff is very friendly... More
