Only problems were those expected of an old, historic building. Walls thin and creaking floors. It didn't bother us all that much. Bed was very comfortable, which is rare for me to say because I have a bad back that hates pretty much all beds. Room was small but completely adequate for my needs and very nicely appointed. Service was... More

Decided to stay at this hotel after buying a living social escape. The scenery was perfect in mid Jan and it felt like we had the whole hotel to ourselves. We ungraded to a Lodge room and received excellent service and accommodations. The breakfast was great. Would go back with another living social deal.

We stayed the last week of December for a wedding and then a few extra days through New Year's. Pros: Fast Check-in, View, Cafe Convenience, History, Booze Check-in was quick, pleasant, and without issue. We got in at 10 PM, so we didn't have time to see much of the hotel the first night apart from our room. We got... More

As for our stay, our first room was pretty filthy. A thick layer of dust everywhere including the pillows. Dennis gave us a much better new room, however, their standards of clean just do not meet mine, and mine arent that high. The service totally missed vacuuming one side of the bed, there were scraps of trash and lint on... More

VERY nice staff & nice rooms. Excellent meal in Cascades. Yes the walls are thin, as it's a very old hotel. But it is exceptionally charming and well maintained. The customer care was genuine and we'll stay there again. Gerry from Colorado

It's an integral part Estes Park and Colorado History. It might be a little on the more expensive side, but I think it worth the price. They have left the Hotel in it's original period decor.

Thank you for the comments regarding your recent stay. Sounds like you had a chance to really explore the hotel and see all it has to offer. One point of correction, we actually do not have a pool anymore but have decked the area to cater large outdoor functions and events! We hope you will come back and visit us... More

Access to the hotel via road is easy. Tip: to easily go to check in, park in the lot, and look to the right where there is a ramp leading down to the floor where check in is located. There is also a ramp on the left outside to the 2nd floor on which floor is located the elevator. The... More

Had a good time overall. Ghost tour was ok, not really believable. Rooms -they are nice but walls are thin and you can hear everything. Bar is excellent! The views are stunning! Staff was very helpful.
