We were stopping over in Estes Park for one night on our way to the Grand Tetons. We weren't looking for anything Luxurious or Fancy. In fact we wanted something quaint and kitschy. Coyote Mt. Lodge was perfect. Reasonably priced. Wonderful views. The rooms were VERY Clean. Had great ammenities. The bathroom and showers were very nice. The beds were... More

We enjoyed our stay at Coyote Mountain Lodge. It's just a couple of minutes of drive away from the centre of the town, quiet and comfortable. The only thing we didn't like was the rubbish wifi connection.

In a swanky, expensive mountain town, the Coyote Mountain Lodge is a refreshing, simple place. The staff is great, and the pool was a nice way to relax after a long day of motorcycling in the Rockies. The lodge is right next door to the Rocky Mountain Fitness Center, where a day pass is only $10. Breakfast and other amenities... More

Coyote Mountain Lodge was a cheap, clean, and friendly place to stay in a town where many hotels were pricey. I think we paid $59 for a small --not premium-room. There was a refrigerator, and we got good, free wi-fi. Since we were spending all our time at Garden of the Gods and seeing the town and the mountains, we... More

My husband and I traveled to Estes Park for a wedding, being that it wasn't 'our' actual vacation, we wanted to save some money and bring our dog along. I would recommend this stay for anyone looking for decently priced rooms in Estes!

We didn't have a reservation and we were glad to have a bed at Coyote. The bed was amazingly comfy and the views were nice. The room was cramped and outdated and there was no phone in our room. Also, we couldn't get the wifi to work. Overall, not bad.

Booking was very easy. I paid a very reasonable price for three nights. The lodge has a nice heated pool and the premises is kept clean. The mattresses could have been better, and there is no breakfast, so I think they can offer the low rate because of that. Overall, I had a great experience with Coyote Mountain Lodge.

Our family likes to watch the 4th of July fireworks over the lake in Estes Park and finding a reasonably priced motel room in the summer is challenging. We stayed at the Coyote Mountain Lodge for the first time this year and were delighted. It's a vintage motor lodge with fresh paint, beds and carpet. There is always coffee and... More

Stayed one night before 4th of July and it was great. The location was perfect and close to everything for a great price. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. The room was spacious with a smaller bathroom that was vintage but perfectly fine for a couple.

The price was very reasonable for Estes Park, and the bed was comfortable. But the WiFi barely worked (except at around 6:00 AM), and there were few accessible outlets for plugging in any chargers or electronic equipment. Our air conditioner worked fine, but the curtains hung down low and partially blocked it. I noticed that some people used paper clips... More
