This is a venerable, old (1960's), Estes Park stample. Nicky's does not purport to be fancy and its not: it IS, however, a very nice spot to rest for a night or two. Over the years I have spent several nights at Nicky's: Never any surprise, always consistent.
I had a "riverview" queen room. Perfectly fine accommodation decorated in the "rustic" western style (if sometimes a bit kitchy). The riverview rooms have working, wood, fireplaces. If you don't like the smell of smoke (real wood smoke not cigarette ) skip these rooms. The scent is certainly not overwhelming but for those who are put out by the rustic smell, pass it by and get one of the other rooms. The WiFi is spotty and can be aggravating (this is not my first time with this issue at this property). Speaking of technology, the screen on my laptop is larger than the "flat screen" TV in the room.
Nicky's is always on my list of potentail properties when I visit Estes Park and RMNP.
