Our visit to the Resort was an extended stay as we took care of some family business around New Year. Given the shoulder season, there were lots of cheaper places in Estes, but we wanted a solid place for our 6 day stay. So, we booked here.
Location - lovely. On the lake with decent views. (A caveat on views follows below).
Service at check-in. Wonderful Down home friendliness. And every request during our stay was met with eagerness and lightening action. Well done.
Lobby and facilities. The lobby is quaint, not huge. I found the bar to be really good. Nice service and good products. The restaurant less so - that has received a separate and not positive review on Tripadvisor. A games room is a great thing to have for families, and pool and gym were more than acceptable.
Rooms - very large, very clean. Modern. Overall, very good. With two small issues. If you book a room on the lower level, you will have no view, and little light. You'll save a few dollars, as we did, but plan to watch TV, because there is nothing to see out the window. Second, the vanity and mirror is not in the bathroom, but in the room itself. So, everyone will be watching you as you perform your morning ablutions. Not ideal. Very nice beds and pillows. Quiet. EXCELLENT free wifi.
Good and free parking. Ease of access to the town, nice coffee in the room.
It is a better than average hotel, but seals the deal by managing to attract and train staff that truly make you feel at home. That matters.
