Save yourself a nightmare. First the room stunk! Asked for no smoking. What the heck smelled? Bed was hard. Carpet was dirty. The towels looked like someone shined their shoes with them, old worn out, stained. BLANKETS. WHAT A JOKE. THEY looked like moving blankets, or one you WOULDN't put down for your dog. No kidding. Thank God, I had... More

They are good quality rooms when you wake up with ants in your bed. Also was charge an extra charge for internet and handling fee of an extra twenty dollars. Not curtious about refunding you when you don't use the room. I was charged 176.00 to stay for one night. Horrible business.

For the price in the Rocky Mountian National Park area this was a great find for us. With the apperance of a cute mountian lodge and quite a nice place for my kids and dog to play out back, we had a great time at the TO. There are no bells or whistles, but we were very comfortable and rested... More

The place was very run-down. The walls were stained and the wall paper was pealing. The bathrooms and towels were dirty and stained. We stayed in the room with the private hot-tub which was the biggest waste of money. It is a jet tub in a closet and it was dirty and had hair in it. We didn't even use... More

This place is really old and run down. Like most of the lodging in Estes Park, it's old, but others are remodeled or updated. Not here. Summer is tourist season and lodging is scarce. They charge $100+ for a room. Most lodging was sold out. I got a $95 on Expedia. What a waste. It's still hot during the day... More

I visit Estes Park a few times a year and always stay at the Twin Owls. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. It's a great location with beautiful views. The rooms are clean and the price is very reasonable.

I've stayed in a lot of fleabag motels but this was the worst. I've even stayed in one with hair on the walls of the shower and it wasn't nearly as awful as this one. First, the good: 1.) They let me check in early. 2.) There were lots of towels in the bathroom. Now, the bad: 1.) There was... More

We have always stayed there when we go to Estes Park since 2008..Love it over the 4th of July since the fire works are just across the street. Easy walking distance to all the downtown area. Since parking is a BIG hassle in Estes, you can leave your car at the lodge and have no driving worries. Yes it is... More

My husband & I stayed at the Twin Owls last July/2009 along with 3 other couples. I had booked it online because the pictures and location looked great. We had been travelling on our motorcycles all day and were dead tired when we arrived late in the evening. When I opened the door to our room the smell was awful.... More

My wife and I just returned home after a five-day stay at Twin Owls. We have been here many times and always love it. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was cordial and helpful. The view out our window was great and we could hear elk bugling all night. We will continue to make Twin Owls our home... More
