The hotel exceeded our expectations and when we return to Estes Park we will be staying here. Pros: great price, wonderful service from a local business that actually cares, bucket full of restaurant menus in the lobby, comfy mattress, beautiful nature photos on the walls of the room. Though the room has not been recently renovated, it was spotless. No... More

Recently stayed here for 2 nights. Very clean and pet friendly. Other hotels were very expensive but the Columbine Inn was affordable and accommodating to my 2 small dogs. They have a nice outdoor hot tub that is open all night. Would recommend this motel and would return again.

First the positives: This motel is very clean; the owner is accommodating and helpful. However, the room we saw on the website had a chest of drawers. Our room had no place to store clothes for a whole week, and the motel was full. The owner did provide additional hangars. The continental breakfast was very inadequate; no fruit, no yogurt;...

This is an old, tired motel. From the reviews I was expecting something a little better and for the price I was extremely disappointed. And the breakfast..... Tea / Coffee and packet muffins. Horrible! I would certainly not recommend.

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

"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
