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. Hotellet kunne behøve en makeover, men var uanset behagelig, vennlig og nært... More

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

Stay if you're wanting a cheap place to crash. Don't stay there if you're a snob. Don't be fooled by 2 stars. The property IS poor, but I make lodging decisions based on value (ratio of cost:quality). I'll stay again if the price is the lowest and I needed just a place in town to sleep and shower. For us,...

We rented this for our Estes Park stay. Pictures showed a nice motel, it is NOT nice, very run down. I told the manager I would not stay there, and they still charged my credit card for one night's stay. Don't fall for the lower rates, it's just plain not worth it. Could be a very nice little lodge with... More

While the rooms were clean, the facility overall could use a make-over. The original rustic look has deteriorated somewhat to something approaching run down. Exterior paint is fading, interior wallpaper is peeling, in-room telephones are obviously old and second hand -- ours was labeled "West Vail Lodge." The rooms lack amenities common in even budget traveler hotels -- no in-room... More
