Really convenient. Good price..neat place and close to downtown. About 3 minutes from estes park downtown. The room was spacious the parking space is right on your room. Really close to the lake as well. Staff were always courteous and polite.

We arrived late and the office was closed. We started to freak out and then saw that they had left an envelope with our name taped on the door. Super cool. The only reason it isn't 5 stars is the bathroom floor had some hair that had been mopped into the corner. Little gross. Other than that we loved the... More

Had a great stay. Had a problem with the wifi, but Brian was very helpful and friendly so I used the computer in the lobby. The young man the day before was very helpful when I had a problem with the door to my room and his suggestions were great as well.

Office staff were very friendly and accommodating! Our room was quiet even though it overlooked the pool area. The updated rooms are very nicely done - small but cozy with all the necessities. Would absolutely recommend to anyone traveling to Estes Park and will personally stay there again in the future!

There are, without a doubt, fancier hotels in Estes Park, with more amenities, but what this place has is character and a true mountain feel. The room was recently remodeled, and so was very nice and clean. But, it had beautiful knotty pine paneling on two of the walls (not tacky 70s-era paneling). The radiant heat furnace was awesome kept... More

We are a family of four with two younger (ages 4 and 6) children. We stayed in the two-bedroom suite this time, our 2nd stay at the Coyote Mountain Lodge, and first time with the two-bedroom setup. We could not have been happier with our stay! The Coyote Mountain Lodge is definitely a "value" hotel. It is very bare-bones, and... More

I stayed here over the Christmas weekend and found it to be just what I was looking for. It overlooks Lake Estes and was an easy walk with my dog done to Estes Trail which goes around the lake and connects with the downtown area. Watching the elk walking across a field behind the lodge was a highlight that I... More

The room was good, clean, and in a safe area. Its nothing fancy. Bathroom was very modern and shower head was great. It was close to everything in Estes Park without feeling too "touristy". Staff was really friendly and the room had good views of the mountains! If you need a clean, decent room without bells and whistles-this is your... More
