“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stayed 3 nights here and loved it. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was beautiful and had awesome views of the mountains.

Down fall was the play ground n the laundry room. There was one nice grill at the front of the office but know one told us we could use it. Plus there was a lot fire pits and we would have loved to have a little bomb fire but once again we didn't know if we could use them. But we would stay here again.

As we were leaving we noticed them unloading a trailer full of comforters. I just hope you are donating the used one to a homeless shelter or too family's that could use them.

Thank you for writing a review of the Hotel Estes. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the staff and the rooms. We have a new playground on its way and it will be here in the next week. And yes, the facilities around the property are for guests and they are more than welcome to use them! And we appreciate you mentioning the donation of old comforters. We did donate them to a shelter. Thank you for the input and we will hopefully see you again soon!

We happened upon Hotel Estes when we got delayed on our hike through Rocky Mountain National Park and needed a place to stay for the night. I have to say that it greatly exceeded our expectations. The place is very clean, the rooms are spacious and well-decorated (I think the hotel was recently remodeled). My wife was particularly impressed with the nice rustic-style furniture. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast in the morning is excellent. Oh, and the view of the mountains from the hotel is indeed quite beautiful. If you are looking for a moderately priced hotel that's comfortable and friendly, look no further. If our travels bring us to Estes Park area in the future, we'll definitely stay in Hotel Estes again.

We stumbled across the hotel as our reservations in Grand Lake were canceled. The front desk help was very nice and friendly. The room was very clean and well decorated. We had a great view out our window of RMNP. What a treat in the mooring when we opened the binds to see what the weather was like.

Bed was comfortable and although bathroom was small it was nice and clean.

Very close to Estes Park downtown.

Will stay here again if back in area.

Room Tip: Rooms in the first building have a better view of the mountains and 2nd floor of course a but better...

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Estes.

Pros: The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was huge, with lots of storage, fridge, and microwave. Free wifi. Iron and ironing board available on request, but not standard in every room.

Cons: The playground area was mostly used as a doggy poop spot, and the equipment was not in good shape at all and geared towards older kids. Not at all safe for preschool age and under. We ended up going to a playground in downtown EP along the riverwalk instead. Their crib was also a very beat up pack n' play... the bottom sagged big time and there were holes in the mesh sides.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We do have an awesome staff. We agree about the play set. We actually ordered a new play set about a week ago. It will be at the hotel in the next two weeks and will be a child friendly, new set. Due to your review, we had our housekeepers sort through all of the pack and plays today. They did find one that was a little worn and replaced it today. We hope to see you again at Hotel Estes! Thank you for the input!

My husband & I only stayed 1 night here, but we wish we could've stayed more. The hotel is very convenient to town, maybe 1 min. from downtown. The room was very clean & the bed was comfy. I wasn't very impressed with the breakfast tho. They have cereal, bread, yogurt, pastries & unpeeled hard-boiled eggs. It was OK but I guess I'm use to a waffle station & some kind of hot dish, like sausages or scrambled eggs. But regardless, I'd stay here again.

We came into town wed and left sat. 4 days of comfort. They have a good continental breakfast. I asked for certain things and they were very happy to make our stay comfortable. We even saw an Elk walk thru the parking lot twice. Nice place to stay.

We stayed here for two nights and it was perfect. The pool was perfect for our kids, the staff was super friendly, and the rooms were a perfect size. The view from our balcony was spectacular. The breakfast was a nice perk too. We will be back!
