There are two kinds of old motels. The ones that during the years lost quality and those that has been able to acquire charm, to upgrade their services and their level through intelligent but never invasive renovation. The Coyote Mountain Lodge definitely belongs to the latter group. Ten years ago I spent one night at this property, the name, if I'm not wrong was then Bighorn Mountain Lodge. When last september I arrived in Estes Park I couldn't remember the name of the motel but as soon as I drove in front of it I recognized it on the spot thanks to the particular shape of the lobby roof, so unique and beautiful that in my opinion should be used as an emblem for the property. I spent two nights in two different rooms and them both proved to be very clean, large, and definitely affordable even for a solo traveller. During my first night the room wasn't equipped with a fridge and a microwave as it was the one where I spent my second night, but I could make use of the micro located in the lobby on the same counter where it's possible getting some good coffee all day long. Before starting to write this review I was thinking if the lack of a morning breakfast, available during the old management, could be considered a sort of deficiency. My answer is no. Once you can count on some coffee (by the way I guess any room is provided with a coffee maker) and a microvawe you can fix yourself any meal you desire without having to pay for it even if you don't need it. Last but not least the real plus is due to the kindness, friendliness and professionalism of the staff, both the girl who checked me in both times and the young man who was on duty in the morning. The Coyote Mountain Lodge will be my accomodation when I'll be again in Estes Park and my choice among other things it's even due to them.
