My fiance and I just stayed at the Deer Crest for an extended weekend. We had been loyal to another hotel for our 2-3 yearly trips to Estes Park, but that hotel had closed for the Thanksgiving/Christmas season.
Well, we are so GLAD they were closed, as it gave us the chance to try the Deer Crest. We had read many good reviews here at TripAdvisor, especially noting the cleanliness of the room.
We booked the Riverfront Deluxe King room for the weekend. When we walked into our room, we noticed that it smelled so clean and fresh. The room was beautifully decorated with a fine bedspread with matching lamp covers, and beautiful mint green sheets. The bed was very comfortable, a little on the firm side, which is how we like a mattress. Maid service during our stay couldn't have been better.
The owner Ken was very friendly, as was the person who checked us in.
The grounds were lovely, with tables and swings along the river. Our view from the room was terrific. We saw a trio of 3 male elks, 2 that were practicing their fighting skills, locking and clicking their racks.
We now have a new favorite place to stay in Estes Park. I can't wait to go back!
