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 Guests can often be fooled by an updated, decorated lobby to "sell" you on the rest of the hotel if it is outdated, but not in this case!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....

I think the econo lodge at Estes park was the best value place we stopped to check rates at, and we tried a few places. The staff were really kind and friendly and our room was decent. It was clean enough, pretty big with 2 double beds and had a decent shower. The motel is an easy 15 minute walk... More

Alright. So, Colorado is a nice place. As a result of that, you expect a certain level. Not the bellagio, but certainly something basic - a minimum standard. This hotel didn't meet that. Our first room was around the back with all the rubbish, up dirty stairs and along a creaky walkwayb. First sign things were bad? The door itself... More

This place is horrible! It was dirty, smelly and just down right disgusting! Will never recommend this place. I think slleping in my van would have been much better. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $ for a decent motel. This place isn't fit for a dog. Pictures they show definitely are not what it really looks like.

Real Crap Hole. Stained nasty carpet. Cob Webs all throughout the room. Half a roll of TP in the bathroom. Sheets were wrinkled. Dresser had a drawer hanging down broken off the hinges. Fan metal looked like it was from 1940's. Completely different pictures online compared to what it is. Pool Isn't even in service and if it was i... More
