Great couple of days at The Lodge. A 70-animal elk herd milled around the buildings all day long one day. The Lodge has pretty areas to sit by a picture window and read a book, while birds of prey soar by outside. The daily continental breakfast and afternoon tea-and-crumpets time were low key and nicely done.

The elk have been out in abundance recently and it is truly a treat! I have even seen a few big horn sheep close to the property the last couple days. The Lodge is very cozy, and Midge does a great job ensuring her guests comfort. Thank you for your business and we hope to see you again soon! More

I had a wonderful stay at the Stanley hotel last weekend. Rooms were cozy and service was incredible. I love going to Estes to walk around, or go climb around the area then head back to the Stanley bar to get a couple of drinks and grab some grub! No room for complaints here and do not understand those that... More

Stayed at the Stanley for our anniversary. Upgraded room to second floor with mountain view and (non-functional) balcony. Room was quite nice, very large king with upgraded bathroom. Spectacular view. A few creaks and squeaks during the night as you would expect from a 100 year old hotel. The restaurant Cascades has a very complete line of Scotch Whisky selections... More

Thank you for your recent feedback. I fully agree with you, sitting on the veranda in the summer is absolutely incredible. We are now doing a Whiskey U, starting this month which I highly encourage you to look at if you are a lover of scotch whiskey. Hopefully, you will have a chance to make it! More

On business in old Stapleton area, me and my crew took advantage of a break and drove up to Estes Park for an overnighter. Off season (to our surprise they ARE open in winter), we got a great deal on a room, thanks to a "US Gov" discount. Showed up around 5, went right to their great cozy bar prior... More

We had always wanted to stay at the Stanley and decided it would be a great way to ring in the new year. The room was great, but we were a little disappointed that the room did not have a coffee maker. The noise level from other rooms made it difficult to sleep. (Especially the yelling at 2 in the...

Just got back from our Christmas stay here! Our first room was ok but faced the courtyard and my husband wanted to have a view of the mountains. I went to the front desk and they moved us right away - even went up with us to show us the room that was available. Awesome! We went in to town... More

Beautiful. What an experience to go back in time. I loved the copper tables and tin/copper ceiling in the bar area. For 'dinner' we'd order a large appetizer of Nachos for $12 which fed the 4 of us and soaked in the ambiance of the room. Instead of a ghost tour I asked a member of the cleaning crew about... More

The hotel is old and drafty. We were freezing in the rooms most of the time. Please seal the cracks around the windows! The food is insanely priced. We didnt have any decent food at the Steamer's Cafe. The coffee was decent but nobody wants to pay 5$ for a bland croissant. The Cascade was a rip off. Just because... More

What a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting. This hotel has real old-style charm, with first class service from all the staff. Our room was small but very comfortable, and many rooms have nice views. Very convenient to Rocky Mountain NP. Also has an excellent restaurant/bar. We had appetizers at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bonus... the largest collection... More
