Nice small "resort". Close to to the creek, hot tub, nice rooms. Love sear recliner in the room. Nice grounds to sit and look at the creek. Price is good. Not fancy but very comfortable and clean. Do not stay anywhere else in Estes. Go visit the Stanley. Great food, drinks, history and drive 2 minutes here. 😀

We came up to Estes Park to do a little snowshoeing and mountain relaxing for our anniversary and the Deer Crest Resort was perfect for our stay. This is a property that works hard to take care of its guest and pays attention to details. We chose a fireplace suite and the room was comfortable, clean, and included everything we... More

In most categories, we loved Deer Crest. The rates were reasonable. They had an extensive library of DVDs that you could rent for free, complementary snowshoes and trekking poles, and free microwave popcorn and hot chocolate. The beds weren't the best, but they were pretty good. The room was warm, and the water was hot when it needed to be.... More

The wife and I stayed here for new years eve and we were pleasantly surprised! It is just up the rode from the Stanley hotel and just minutes from downtown Estes.

Room has a gas fire place but pilot light gets blown out by draft. Owner is offsite after hours and has to come relight it. They have four servers for wireless internet but none work in the room we had. We made two calls but they could not resolve it. We stayed in winter. At 7 degrees the cold water... More

Hello Ralph, It was very cold and windy during your 2 night stay at Deer Crest. I was happy to get out of bed and relight your fireplace. Our office manager, lives on site, and I am only 5 minutes away, so not a problem for me to respond to your inquiry. Regarding the internet. Usually, if there is a... More

My husband and I stayed here right after Christmas for a weekend away. The staff was friendly, the room was very charming and clean, and they offered some bonus perks: snowshoes for our exploration of trails in the area, which we took advantage of, and a movie library & microwave popcorn available in the main office, which we did not....

This place is extremely clean convenient but not on the main strip. We loved our stay! Hot Tub is private and clean as well as available 24h a day. Bathrooms are updated and you have all the convinces of home. The bed was amazingly comfortable and fireplace delightful. We will absolutely recommend this place and will return.

We stayed in a room with a gas fireplace and it was HEAVEN! Smallish king single, nice little kitchen, located in what they describe as a "fireplace rooms" and just a stone's throw from the hot tub and the river. Next time we'll bring a few groceries and just settle in. It's also an easy walk to Nicky's Restaurant which... More

We loved our stay, the staff was friendly and helpful and the room comfy and clean. The best part was waking up and watching the elk that was walking around right outside our door and later was sitting right outside the front office! We will definitely be returning!

This is a really nice place for a quick get away. Not only was the price right, but everything else was just great. The lady at the front desk when we checked in couldn't have been nicer.
