“Stayed there for a week.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

As an exchange student, I came to Estes Park to work during the summer 2013. The first place I stopped was Estes Village Inn, used to be called Super 8. First off, the owner (Korean old man) is extremely rude and once acknowledged that he is racist. He also owns Twin Owls Motor lodge. The service is awful, he used to disable keys and demand the payment for the next weeks altogether. Secondly, the conditions of rooms and facilities and totally terrible. So, stay away from both hotels. They may even demand more money to keep your reservation alive the day before your arrival. I couldn't dare when he started to yell at me, and I left the hotel even though I had paid for the next several days. That's the worst experience I have gone through in the US.

Found this room on Expedia so they charged my credit card. Got to town and couldn't find the hotel because we booked at the Econo Lodge. Couldn't see street numbers on building. I called to see where they were located. They became Econo Lodge 2 weeks but have never put up the new sign that is sitting in front of the hotel. The hotel does not work with Expedia so they charged my card again (at least it was less cost) I then had to call Expedia for them to work out the problem and credit back my card. The room was standard. My husband had to fix the running toilet, the ice machine did not work so had to go to the lobby and use their desk top. 2nd night there was not ice. Bathroom is very outdated - but plenty of hot water. When I first sat on the mattress I thought "wow - a nice soft bed" but later found out it was just worn out. Outside is dirty and needs lots of cleaning. I would not stay here again unless on a VERY strick budget.

Worst hotel to stay at in Estes Park, hands down. This place should be condemned! We booked the two room "suite". When we opened the door it smelled as though something had died in there. My dad walked to the back room only to find an inch of watch on the ground. He complained to the front desk so they moved us to another room. This was also a "suite". It was so dirty if my son was with me we would have slept in the car. Holes in the wall, gum stuck in the carpet, unsafe plugs, one light bulb working in the vanity I mean this place was a dive! Complained again but there were no other "suites" so we settled for a room with 2 queens and a roll-away. This room was tolerable or at least that was my mantra for the weekend. We asked for a discount as we were now down graded from the "suite" to only receive $40 off our bill. Water runs hot and cold and there were only two working power outlets in the room. You could not pay me to stay here again.

Room Tip: No room in this place would be suitable for staying in. Please stay away!

They are no longer a super 8 first off. They lost the title due to conditions. Rooms are filthy, sheets are stained and unwashed, holes in walls, safety latch on door fell off, ceiling fan does not work, water temperature fluxuates randomly, poorly lit outside and trip hazards on dark walkways, and metal frame with sharp edges sticking out of sides of bed that I cut my ankle on....cannot be more pissed off. Please stay away from this place.

The rooms were nasty and old. We are not extremely picky travelers, but I would not stay here again. My brother came out of the bathroom after taking a shower and said he had a nice "knee wash" because water shot out of the top of the spigot! We didn't even dare eat breakfast there after my husband saw rat droppings in the main lobby. We were also double billed! Do not stay here!

If I had known this was the old Super 8 I would not had booked this motel. The outside looks good, the beds were clean but that is all the good I can say for this place. There was uncovered electrical outlets, and shower was hot one minute and cold the next,. What hot tub the one by the pool that I would not use because of the way it looked. All I have to say is this place is not good enough for my worse nightmare. Do not stay here.

I myself, didn't have a reservation at this dump..But my parents did, for the 4th of July. The owner called my parents demanding more money to save the two rooms, that they had reserved for the night. So we had to put the payment on my debt card, so that they would have a place to stay. Well my parents didn't make it to the hotel. Their car broke down, so they called to see what they needed to do. And the guy that answered the phone hung up on my dad. So, now I'm out of $200 that the hotel will not return..
