This place received 3-stars in AAA but should be a 2. The facility shows its age with interiors that definitely could use updating, especially the carpeting. The registration process was smooth and businesslike if not overly friendly. Breakfast is available in the attached restaurant but not free. The french toast was very good. Dinner there was OK. There are better eateries nearby.
Our room was OK but not well cleaned - there was a small toy left by the last guest, and a pair of jockey briefs greeted us in the hallway. We were in the back facility which is attached by corridors to the front and about 39 steps up from the front desk. ASK FOR A ROOM IN THE FRONT BUILDING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO CLIMB STEPS! There is a large indoor pool area, like a "Holidome", with a jacuzzi and lots of chairs. There is a laundry facility in the main building on the 3rd floor, where there is an elevator. There is no elevator in the back building, but if you are on the second floor there will be no steps to climb from the back entrance. Free coffee is available in the lobby in the morning. They also don't charge for it in the restauant in the morning.
The beds are a little soft and do sag in the middle. They need to get new mattrases.
If you want to stay at this place try to get a discount from the undeserved 3-star rating, but good luck with that. Estes Park is a really nice place with plenty of affluent tourists during the summer.
The restaurant will prepare you a box lunch if you are going to Rocky Mountain National Park for about $9.00 which was good. There are tables to eat on at the park, but not that many. There is a place to get lunch in the park if you don't mind eating at 11,400 feet, right next to the souvenier shop.
