“Great for the price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stayed two nights, and it was very clean with a comfortable king-size bed. The room was small and kinda dated, but you can see that they have made some improvements. We were pleasantly surprised with some really nice mountain views!! We were looking for a certain price, and we thought in this price range, the hotel definitely had the most important things: cleanliness and comfort. If we had our kids with us, it wouldn't have worked......no room for a pack and play or cot. But for the two of us, we would stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view. If you have kids with you, see if they have larger rooms.

I needed a place for Friday and Saturday for me, my husband, 2 kids and a new puppy. Very dog friendly. Stayed In the not updated room. Old, but decent. There were only 2 towels, no closet space. Beds were not very comfy, tv was outdated and small but worked. Fridge worked great. Old school key and small ac that made noise after awhile. Easy access to car parked outside our door. Wedding reception Saturday night got loud and rowdy with drunks everywhere throwing trash and breaking beer bottles at midnight. Front desk closed at 10:30 so no one to call and complain to except police. Cleaning staff vacuumed and made bed but didn't clean the bathroom and remove dirty towels that were really dirty from kids dirty feet from all the dust outside!

We chose this hotel based on their advertising of lowest prices in Estes. Coyote Lodge is a charming place to stay Rooms are smaller. Lodge is in the process of being renovated from an outdated old motor lodge setting to a more updated and modern setting. Outdoor pool and hot tub; both kept up very well. Not a lot of amenities that the more expensive hotels have but more than adequate for the two of us. Bring your own hairdryer and alarm clock. Coffee available at the office each morning. Just moments from Big Thompson Canyon. Does not have breakfast available however does partner with a local diner in Estes Park for breakfast. Bed was fairly comfortable. Would choose to stay there again.

Our family had several different room accommodations - one condo, one 2-bedroom suite, one standard room 2-queen beds, one deluxe room 2-queen beds. The rooms were comfortable and clean. They all had refrigerators and microwaves. The pool was newly redone and we ended each day at the pool with the kids. There was a small play area and our kids rode scooters through the parking lot. Location can't be beat-very close to the town of Estes, we walked down one day and connected with the river walk at the Visitors Center. We saw coyotes at our motel and elk on the golf course close to Lake Estes. The lake was a 10-minute walk from our motel. The staff was very helpful, even moving one of our families from their room to another room, same type, that was just bigger. I would recommend Coyote Mountain Lodge for a comfortable, inexpensive "base of operations" for any family.

Room Tip: The lower level, corner deluxe room with 2 queen sized beds was quite a bit larger than the other ro...

Our entire family stayed here for the week - awesome price and great rooms. The service was terrific - we asked for a larger room and were given one, no hassle, no charge. Pool was great for the kids as well as the complimentary hot chocolate every morning. I'd recommend this to anybody who wants a good deal. Thank you -Nick was especially helpful.

Room Tip: We reserved a renovated room but were upgraded to a newly renovated room - when you reserve, ask abo...

My husband and I spent one night here in a deluxe king room during our tour of Rocky Mountan National Park. It had been recently refurbished, as had the bathroom and, although it wasn't particularly big, there was enough space for us and our rather large amount of luggage. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable and, on the night that we stayed, the weather was cold so we were glad of the rather ancient-looking but functional heater in the room. It was nice to have a view of the mountains from our room too. The whole motel is gradually being remodelled and the staff here are doing a good job. The people on reception were welcoming and friendly and suggested good places for us to eat dinner and breakfast. This motel is very good value for money.
