Wonderfull customer service and hotel condition! Stayed three nights in hotel and hope to go there again! Clean and comfortable suite and nice breakfast! I wish only they had breakfast earlier than eight to ten!

Thank you for your kind TripAdvisor review. Our dedicated staff makes a big difference in your lodging experience. Our housekeepers keep the place in top notch condition. Sorry breakfast was delayed. It comes a bit earlier during the regular summer season. We would be delighted to see you for a return visit.

We stayed one night, allowing us to see and hear the Elk bugling in Estes Park and also Rocky Mountain Nat. Park, and the Manager is totally awesome. While checking in, we found that breakfast was not until 8AM, so the Manager gave our Friends and Us, cereal, fresh fruit, muffins, orange juice, milk, and extra coffee bags for the next morning, since we would be leaving by 6:30. Our rooms were on the 2nd floors, and were very clean, the only drawback was no place to set things, either in the room or the bathroom. We would stay again.

Our staff is indeed "totally awesome"! I am delighted that the manager was able to facilitate your early departure by making some breakfast items available outside usual service hours. Thank you for your TripAdvisor review. We look forward to your return visit.

We stayed at this hotel in September 2012 for two nights. It is clean and moderately priced. The owners were friendly and helpful. We had a room with a fireplace and jet tub. Satisfied with the value for the money.

We stayed one night on the 15th of September in the handicap accessable unit. Unit was very nice, new bathroom fixtures, fresh paint. The new management of this hotel has made many improvements in the unit we stayed in. A good value for the money. The room had small frig, microwave and coffee maker. Management could not have been nicer. Estes Park is a nice getaway. Love RMNP and saw lots of Elk when we were there. The Fall Rd. visitor center is very nice and there resturant is a real treat.

We stayed at this America's Best Value Inn for 3 nights while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. The staff was super friendly; anything we asked for (an extra towel, e.g.) was at our door in a few minutes. The building is old so you'll have some quirks (like a bathroom door that doesn't quite click closed) but the room was very comfortable and furnishings are clearly updated. Besides the bed, we had a table and chairs, reading lights on both sides of the bed, fridge, microwave and coffee-maker. The free breakfast was mediocre, but did include waffles. There are picnic tables and grills in the back and also a coin-operated washer and drier for guest use. The internet is strong and fast and the cost of all of this is about the lowest in town! In fact, we've enjoyed our stay here so much that we've already made our next reservation!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your recent three night stay with us and that you took the time to report your experience on TripAdvisor. Our staff is "super" indeed and makes a big difference in how our guests perceive their time with us. You are not the first to comment on our mediocre breakfast. We hope to improve on our culinary offering. Thanks for your detailed inventory of the room furnishings. We look forward to seeing you again on your return visit.

We booked a two night stay at this property after stopping at two other places that had no rooms left. The front desk clerk was very helpful and recommended a couple restaurants to us. The room itself was dated but clean. Location was nice, being somewhat on the edge of town but close enough to all the restaurants and shopping in Estes Park. Mountain views were terriffic! We didn't eat the breakfast, it was just waffles and cold cereal in the very small reception area. There was a fridge and microwave in the room, which came in handy during our stay. Bed was adequate, shower had very low water pressure. Just another economy hotel!

Thank you for the comments you made in your recent TripAdvisor review. We rely on feedback such as yours to identify areas which need improvement. We plan to start updating the rooms in a process which will take two or three years to complete. We'll get that shower checked out right away. We are investigating how to improve our breakfast offering. We don't want to be "just another economy hotel" but the preferred economy hotel in Estes Park.

Our room was very spacious and super clean. The beds were very comfortable. The new owners did a great job renovating the rooms. The large Jacuzzi tub was great. It felt so relaxing after a day of hiking in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Having a small fridge and microwave in the room was also nice. There is a large outdoor heated pool, shuffleboard court, basketball hoop and a kid’s playground on the property. There were also several BBQ grills and picnic tables in a grassy area. The continental breakfast was a little light. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Reasonable room rates. A great value is offered at America’s Best Value Inn at Estes Park. I would recommend this hotel and we would stay here again.
