The owner of Columbine Inn really knows how to take care of his customers. I had to change the dates of a reservation and John quickly told hotels.com to waive the $90 fee. The place is clean and in the perfect location if you're going to Rocky Mountain National Park. Great visit to Colorado!

Yes, the owner is friendly enough, but he needs to adapt to his guests. As another reviewer mentioned, you are out of luck for a cup of coffee until 7:30. I was awake for hours by then, with the time change and all, and didn't appreciate the long wait. On the second and third mornings I just decided to grab... More

For a few dollars more, you can get a much nicer place. Problems w/ Columbine: 1. shower head is 5'5" up from floor 2. No hair dryer 3. no diet soda for sale "they don't sell." 4. "I can not email you a reservation confirmation for only a 1 night stay." 5. no coffee maker in the room, and one... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. The owners are a lovely couple, and were very helpful, I enjoyed chatting with them very much. The hotel was clean and very quiet, which was great, and I could relax and sleep well after hiking in the day. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet hotel that isn't too expensive, this place...

This is a old motor-inn sort of feeling motel. We had a queen room. The bed was fine. Two pillows. The room had two chairs and a small table. The bathroom was VERY clean. The walls were a little thin, and the room was pretty small. The owner was friendly, and obviously took great pride in his establishment. There is... More

What we needed was a clean, cozy, convenient, comfortable, & cheap place to stay. This place met all of our criteria. Our three days were spent birding in Rocky Mountain National Park & this was the perfect place to crash at the end of the day. John gave VERY helpful advice to help make our birding trip even more successful!... More

The room was very clean, but that's about all it had going for it. Oh, the bed was comfortable, and the room was within walking distance of a good restaurant and a walking trail around the lake. The breakfast was minimal at best.

Room was very comfortable and clean. We got what we asked for - a two queen room. Staff were very helpful. The owner John is knowledgeable of the area and went out of his way to help my family and I with an item for our next destination. The location is conveniently close to Rocky Mountain National Park. My family... More

Excellent views and super clean. Check in was very easy and staff was super friendly. Quiet place and the rates were awesome for July in Estes Park. Would totally stay here again. We only used the A/C once as the windows caught a great cross breeze. Parking was tight but available.
