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

My husband, who is disabled, and I were going to use a friend's condo in Estes, but he was unable to access it. So...we had the dilemma of finding an accommodation in July during the Rooftop Rodeo! We, luckily, found Deer Crest resort. Ken and his wife have made this lovely riverside retreat a real pleasure. They went above and... More

If you are looking for a fancy hotel with up to date furnishings, you will want to go somewhere else. On the other hand, if you are looking for a peaceful retreat where there aren't kids running all over the place and you can sit outside taking in the scenery and weather, this is the location for you! The rooms... More

The location was great as it was away from the crowded part of town. The river/creek was wonderful to relax by in the late afternoons and mornings. We neglected to note when we made our reservation that there is NO air conditioning available. Since the creek/river was so loud at all times, it was hard to keep the window open... More

Hello. Glad you enjoyed our location and the Beautiful Fall River. Over half of our rooms do have a/c, but it is normally cool in the evenings. Sorry that wasn't the case while you were here and that you found the river was too loud for you to sleep with the windows open. Most people like the sounds of the... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights over the 4th of July weekend. We needed a relaxing break from the trauma in our lives since October. Deer Crest really helped us achieve our goal. We had a river front king room which had the most comfortable bed. Room was kept very clean by the very nice housekeeping staff.... More

On our month drive trip West to see several National Parks, we wanted a unique place to stay in Estes Park for 3 days to enjoy the RMNP and the beautiful town if Estes Park. I searched the net, found Deer Crest, LOVED the photos and emailed the owner regarding handicapped accessible room. He emailed me the room photos and... More

Hello Jules. Thank you for staying with us and for extending your stay a day. Glad we had another day open for you. Happy you got to see some of our wildlife on our property. Regarding the hot tub jets, there is a timer switch inside the hot tub room by the door. When you activate the timer switch it... More

Deer Crest was the perfect location for the easiest access to RMNP and Estes Park. Our bed was very comfortable and the linens very nice. We would recommend Deer Crest to anyone making this adventurous trip. We have truly fallen in love with the Rockies.

We had a king room. It was very nicely decorated. The double recliner was unexpected. The room had a kitchenette with fridge, dishes, etc... The bed was so comfy. Shower very clean. I wasn't sure what 'garden side' meant when I made the reservation.... The room opened to a courtyard with outdoor furniture groupings, encouraging outdoor time. There are outdoor... More

Me and a buddy stayed here in June. Our room with queen beds was clean and well-stocked with a TV, coffeemaker, fridge -- nothing fancy, but everything you need for a stay. It was on the second floor facing the river and we could hear its roar from our room -- an excellent soundtrack to fall asleep to. The property... More
