“Wonderful Management”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

While our adjoining rooms were a bit tight for our family of 8, we had been warned of that when we made the reservations. Jay was super helpful as we made our reservations and for our large group, it was the best value in the area that we could find. It was super convenient to RMNP which is where we spent our day and a half at Estes. We had the kitchen room and it was nice to be able to cook. My praise goes out to management (Jay and Fran, I think). We had two major issues. The first is on the first leg of our trip, we'd flown into Denver and b/c of a bomb threat on our plane, we missed our only day to sightsee in Denver. Alpine Trail Ridge Inn was supposed to be our last stop, but with 6 kids 11 and under, you can only see so many trails, elk, and deer. Once we realized 4 days would be too many at RMNP, we asked if we could cancel our last two nights so as to get a chance to return to and explore Denver. B/c of what had happened (bomb threat) they said we could leave early and they'd only charge us for one of the nights we wouldn't be there unless the room was rented. The room was rented eventually and they refunded us the second night. The second issue was our 8y/o son accidentally left a deer whistle in the room. We didn't realize this until we were back in Denver. He was heartbroken. I called ATRI and they said they would look. They called within an hour to say they didn't find the whistle but they would keep looking. The next day, we received a call and after checking the room again, the whistle was found. They asked my permission to charge our debit card for shipping and we received the whistle faster than an order from Amazon! Great people to deal with. It's nice to be able to experience help from people who are truly committed to customer service.

Very clean room in a well maintained motel. If you are going to spend most of your time in RMNP, then this motel has the ideal location, and it is probably the highest rated motel by far on this side of Estes Park.

If you arrive late, the owners leave keys in a envelope for your taped to the office door.

The ice maker is conveniently located in a room that is accessable 24/7.

Wifi was weak in our room, but usable. I only used briefly in the evening.

The only issue with the room is that it did not have an exhaust fan in the bathroom. However, the sink is outside the bathroom.

Room Tip: rooms with a "view" are next to the highway that goes to RMNP. However, it is fairly quie...

We were really pleased with our stay at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn which we were pleased was easy to find and very convenient at the end of a long drive from Aspen and over the trail ridge road.
Everything was comfortable and we would stay again

I stayed by myself on a business trip and enjoyed the overall stay. The room was small and truly that is my only negative comment. The room was clean, the service very good and staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back.

Easy access to Mary's Lake area, Rocky Mountain National Park, and downtown Estes Park. Rooms are clean, comfortable and staff were helpful. Nice western-style restaurant next to the motel. I love Estes Park, as I vacationed with my parents, aunts/uncles and cousins many, many times in the late 60s. It's nice to come back to Estes Park!

The accomidations were lovely and the staff was very friendly. Our reservation was complicated and the staff did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We were in Estes Park on business and having a nice place to stay make the business go much smoother. I would say that for personal use and business use we would stay at Alpine Trail Ridge Inn.
