“New King Suite is Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

My husband and I stayed in the new "King Suite" at the Alpine Trailridge Inn a few days after the fire in Estes Park. The suite was wonderful! When we first entered the room, the table was set with very nice dishes, silverware and stemware for a romantic dinner for two! --Nice touch! The kitchenette had the necessary cooking utensils, silverware, dishes, etc., as sell as a toaster, coffee maker, microwave and a small refrigerator/freezer. The bed was very comfortable (satin sheets were replaced with a high-grade cotton sheet set) and the room was beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed sitting in the theatre-style recliners watching the big screen TV after our busy days sight-seeing. And as we have come to expect from this motel, the room was exceptionally clean and the staff and management were extremely friendly and helpful. We had planned on only staying one week but were having such a great time we extended our stay another week in a different room and found it to be top notch, too. Stay here! You won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed our one night at Alpine Trail Ridge Inn. The Inn is set out on a slight incline and the rooms are of the "traditional American Motel" format. Our room had a balcony which had fantastic views of the Rockies, and we spent a fair amount of time that evening watching the sun go down and then enjoying the beautiful colours of the sky as the sun set.
The room was clean and everything was is good repair, the only down side was the noisy air conditioner, but this is something we've found at numerous American hotels.

Office workers nice and helpful. Buildings old but clean. Beds not so great. Rooms very small. Bath even smaller. Would not use this place again unfortunately.

, General Manager at Alpine Trail Ridge Inn, responded to this review, July 9, 2012
I suspect this reviewer stayed in our Western room in our older buildings, which do have the smallest rooms. We obviously were not the right property for them. I'm sorry he did not ask to see me or my wife and share his concerns. We could have shown him our larger rooms if we had any open and possibly upgraded them. I would encourage anyone who finds their accommodations not what they expected, to ask to meet with the management in a non-confrontational setting and share their concerns. Management who have their guest's comfort and satisfaction as their primary goal, will welcome the input and then act upon it to improve the situation. I'm sorry we did not meet their expectations, and we wish them well in their travels.
Sincerely,
Jay Grooters, Operations Manager

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights the week of July 4. So happy that contributors write in about APRE, as they were 100% correct. This is an older facility, but once in your room, you could not tell. We were assigned a very clean, nice-sized king room, with an over-stuffed recliner, comfy easy chair with ottoman - which was great for reading, and a balcony with views of Longs Peak. Just at the end of the driveway was the restaurant, which was very good. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and offered suggestions on hikes. APRI was very close to the entrance of RMNP and Trail Ridge Road, very close to Cheesey Lee's Pizza, Smokin Dave's BBQ - both rated very high. Coffee, hot chocolate and tea available in the lobby. Thanks APRE for helping to make our trip fun and comfortable.

Room Tip: The king room, upstairs at the back offers a quick 'out' onto a side street up to the traffi...

We recently spent 4 days at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn, as soon as I walked in to the office I was greeted with 3 smiling faces and a warm reception. Our room was real comfortable and REAL CLEAN. I would definately recomend a room with a balcony, we ate all our breakfasts on the balcony. On, the first night there we had a bull elk 3 cow elk and a calf elk right across the street in a grassy area. We would absolutely recomend this Inn to anybody who is passing thru, Frank was really helpfull when we spoke to him about where to eat and what to do, Fran was really helpfull when we were trying to figure out where to hike with my family. She has a wealth of knowledge of the trails in the area and gave us some real good hikes.

Once again we loved our stay at Alpine! The rooms are so clean. The pool is actually heated! Plus, you can't beat the location. Thanks again for a wonderful place to rest, relax, and enjoy nature!

We came to Alpine Trail Inn at the end of a sixteen night road trip through South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming, spending our last two nights in Etes Park, Colorado. Our vacation had been so fantastic, that we were beginning to feel sad about returning home to the UK. however, our spirits were lifted as soon as we checked into the Alpine Trail; the staff were friendly, welcoming and professional. When we opened our room door, we were absolutely delighted! The room was beautifully presented, well equipped, immaculately clean & super comfy. We felt again that excitement of being away from home in not only a stunning location, but in GREAT accommodation. The fridge and microwave meant we could self cater (and at the end of a long vacAtion, funds are running low!) which was perfect. The kids loved the Cartoon and Disney channels on the tv and my husband And I thoroughly enjoyed an evening sat on our balcony With a glass of wine, enjoying the jaw droppingly stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. To have this view, you do have to be road side, but quite honestly, it did not attract from the location we were in and lets face it, it's hardly an InterstAte or motorway that the Inn is sat next to! Our kids are 9 & 11 years and loved the pool too.
The whole place was extremely comfortable and the staff at the office were only too happy to help us with some disposable plates and a cork screw for the wine. We cannot fault this Inn, just perfect! Thank you Alpine Trail Ridge Inn for being there at the end of our wonderful holiday and finishing it off with a bang. Don't hesitate to stay here!!! We would most certainly come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room for the most stunning views!!!!!!
