Easily the dirtiest motel I've ever tried to spend the night. I say "tried" because I demanded my money back eventually. Some highlights: smoke/mold smell, tattered box spring, plastic-covered mattress, bugs scattered throughout, holes in the baseboard and carpeting, and unidentifiable stains on the furniture, walls, and carpet. I tried to cope by taking a shower (given that everything else... More

Location was fine. Older hotel that needs to be updated. Internet was down for most of our visit. The king bed we slept on was so hard our backs are still hurting. The bathtub backed up when showering. The senior discount consisted of an upgrade to a Jacuzzi room, but told us not to use the Jacuzzi! Not worth the... More

We chose Twin Owls because of its location and price. The building is very, very old and in serious need of updating. The paint on the outside is peeling all over, the pool was not filled and the stairs are very scary. The room was very basic, but big. No amenities, but it was clean. The lady in the office... More

I agree with most of the "Guy" posts here; this place is great for being central to Estes Park. I produce a national TV show called LIP'EM & RIP'EM and we've stayed in the finest resorts/hotels/motels in Colorado (and beyond). We're totally 'spoiled'. This place is NOT 'no frills' in the sense that this is a clean place, comfortable bed,... More

Location location location!!! The hotel itself is average, and reasonably priced. The view is Amazing. And the staff is courteous. I will return to Twin Owls next time I go to Colorado. I had a wonderful time. And did I mention what an awesome location??? minutes from everything and everywhere you want to go!

The staff was nice but that was it. Building looks like a good wind would knock it down. Mold on ceiling and shower curtain. Bathroom window wouldn't close. Pool had no water and hot tub didn't work. You could hear what was going on next door. No do not disturb sign so housekeeping came in while we were gone.

If you like basic, minimal, and dated you will love Twin Owls. Otherwise look elsewhere. Beds and bathroom were adequate and there is an old box 21" TV. Luckily we brought our own coffee pot, coffee, and ice chest. A drawer in the dresser was broken and the window ledge in the bathroom had not been cleaned for some time.... More

One of the more affluent Winter Sport venues in the Rockies, a very nice and clean town. The hotel could do with a makeover but proved pleasant, friendly and close to everything. / En av de mere vesltående vintersportssteder i Rocky Mountains, en pen og ren lille by.

Perfect location. Lake estes trail is just a jaywalk across the street, wonderful views and yesterday an elk hung out infront of the motel and made noises at me lol. 5-10 minute walk downtown / elkhorn. The room was fine, clean, had fridge, phone and plenty of towels. I will be coming back. No its not the hilton but those... More

The place is run down and shabby. The pool has no water in it as well as the alleged hot tub. Carpeting is thread bare and some of the light fixtures in the room don't work. We asked for a "quiet" room for the night only to have them rent the adjoining room to four people who woke us up... More
