Estes Park is very crowded on these nice fall days, and there was a limited amount of rooms available throughout the resort. We booked this room as we were travelling and I did not check the reviews first. BIG MISTAKE! I would give this place a negative = worse than terrible if I could. We had our day in Estes... More

My wife and I stayed in room #120. Our first impression of the hotel was not good as the premises looked unkept and we found trash scattered around the rear of the hotel by our room. When we walked in the room it stank and the carpet was soiled. It just did not seem clean. When we got up the... More

There were bed bugs. It was disgusting. If we had anywhere else to stay, we would have. The breakfast was horrible. I don't know how they are in business. I'm sure it used to be nice once but the trash was everywhere, the people were rude. And my poor son getting eaten alive by bed bugs was the worst.

There were Bags of trash lining the walkway to the room. Old used trashed office chairs outside every room for patio furniture. There was mold in the shower and the toilet seat was not fixed to the floor. The center support bar under both beds was not attached and just lying in the floor. The front door has a ½... More

We checked into Room #133. The room was disgusting and to top it off we found bed bugs! Lots of them.. Do not stay at this hotel. We asked for a refund and found lodging elsewhere. Horrible experience.

There isn't much more that I could add that hasn't already been said. I believe this hotel is only still in business due to people not being able to secure accommodations elsewhere and staying only because there is no other alternative. Like others have stated; dirty, dirty, dirty! Just don't do it. It may be better to just sleep in... More

Good thing I brought my lysol spray with me. The carpet soo.. dirty and stained. I should know as soon as we entered the lobby! Traveling with two kids I cleaned with clorox towelettes everything in the room.

Walked into this disgusting lobby and walked right out! Stay elsewhere! This was the most filthy place I've ever seem. Would rather sleep on a bench. The whole exterior is run done and neglected. Pay attention to past reviews from people that were actually brave enough to stay here.

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
