You just can't beat this location with this price !!!! The hotel is spread across a wide area near a small pond. Entrance to the hotel from the main road is bit tricky (we checked in late in the night) as the road going down was dark and narrow (no safety issues though !!). We stayed here for two nights and visited the RMNP. The outside of the lodge is cottage style with two independent buildings (I am not sure, there may be more). We stayed in a room just next to the office. The young owners are really nice and helpful and they greeted everybody well. They have free coffee and hot chocolate in the office (no breakfast included). The room was very clean with polished wood furnitures, large flat screen TV and clean spacious bathroom. We stayed in a queen bed room and it was large enough for us to be a bit disorganized and keep our stuff scattered. When you open the window - the majestic snow covered peaks of the rocky mountain greets you from distance. We will definitely stay in the discovery lodge again if we go back to the Estes Park in the future. I have only one complain to the management - please keep at least one light on near the office and one near the hotel entrance for the travellers coming late. I can understand that they are trying to be sustainable and saving energy - but keeping couple of low power consuming lights really helps.
Green Features: May be one of the most environment friendly small hotel I have stayed. Thumbs up to the owners.

Hello! Thank you for your positive review regarding your stay with us here at Discovery Lodge. We in fact have 5 buildings on our main property (we close 2 for the winter) in additional to our cabin and the Otis House. When we know we have guests checking in after hours we will leave a light by the office door for them. Otherwise we do try to be conscientious of our energy footprint. Estes Park is a very safe community with our biggest concern being the wildlife most nights. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon. Thanks, and have a great day!
