We stayed for one night before heading to Aspenglen for a week to "rough it" camping. Unfortunately, it was rougher staying in this hotel, I will most definitely be checking reviews from now on. Upon arriving I had to ask for help, as there was no one at the front desk but there were people eating pizza that I ended... More

This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I was in room #129. I drove around the entire hotel looking for my room, but the numbers ended at 128. Finally found someone who told me that room #129 is on the second floor. Since when does the room number start with a "1" and is on the second floor?????... More

Stayed here after a last minute change of plans to a trip. First impressions are everything and the old vending machine with holes in it and faded bags of chips was a bad way to start. The rooms were dirty, the sheets were yellow and had holes in them. The electrical was unsafe as several cords were plugged into the... More

This place doesn't even deserve one star but unfortunately that it the lowest I could rate. Coming into town on a Saturday there were not many vacancies and so unfortunately we ended up in the last available room in town which was at the Econolodge: room 110, a tatty room that consequently was pet friendly. I already knew this would... More

Room was dirty and smelled bad. Our stay was for four days. We ended up here because it was the only hotel with a vacancy. Daily maid service consisted of bed remade, new towels and trash emptied. No cleaning of bathroom, no carpet vacuuming and no dusting. When the office was contacted about the inadequate maid service I was told... More

Was trying to find a room last minute and the hotels in our price range were booked. A room at the Econo Lodge opened up so I grabbed it. Had I read the reviews here I may have reconsidered. When you pay $139/night you expect something decent. When we pulled up around 10 pm to check-in the lobby was dark... More

This hotel was average; but the woman at the front desk, Barbara, was incredibly helpful. When Expedia didn't send them our reservation even though they had already charged us, it was Barbara who made sure we were able to get a room for the night. She called people with reservations and found one that wouldn't be making it in that... More

Room was dirty, smelt bad, kids asked if they could sleep in the car. 4th of July and everything everything else was booked. Econo Lodge should be embarrassed to let this dump use their name. Forgot something in the room and tried for 2 days to contact the motel and nobody would answer the phone. please do not make the... More

Estes Park is a 21st Century town, yet this hotel somehow got left in the 18th Century. Guests can often be fooled by an updated, decorated lobby to "sell" you on the rest of the hotel if it is outdated, but not in this case! The lobby was dark and creepy, and the staff that greeted us upon arrival were... More

Nice room size, mini frig, little flat screen TV with cable & WIFI and new bed spreads. But......it had nasty carpet with something brown dripped on it. The toilet ran for an hour after being flushed. It was noisy. Very run down and out dated. A one star hotel for a 3 star price....won't be staying there again....
