“Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My husband and I were there off season, the price was great! They gave us the best room in the Inn because we stayed for a week. We received a $20 voucher for breakfast every morning. Which was very good. Full buffet, plus you can order off the menu. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The wifi worked great for us. We had to pay extra for a small refrigerator, and microwave. The Inn is right outside of the park, and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. I researched and read reviews of most Estes Park facilities, and this suited our needs best, plus the hot tub was great after a long day of hiking. If you plan on staying in your room all day, spend the money and go 4 stars. If you want a nice place to stay while seeing the park, and hanging out in Estes Park you can't go wrong with this place.

Hello:

Thank you for your feedback. We're all pleased to see you enjoyed your stay and especially our outstanding staff! There are two other similar properties in town, with price tags just about $100 more per night than ours for those who are looking for a little more "fancy" on their vacation. I hope you were able to enjoy your 1pm check out and the free afternoon wine and beer reception during your stay!

Thank you for your business!

I love hotels with big, clean pools and this one has a good one -- nice whirlpool, too. The people here are also great and seem to make a sincere effort to take care of guests. On the downside, the wi-fi sort of came and went throughout our two-night stay and the mattresses on our two double beds were pretty much shot. Two people on the same bed will immediately find themselves rolling toward each other. Very enjoyable otherwise.

Hello:

Thank you for your feedback. We have a terrific location just outside downtown and have Estes Park's best pool and hot tub - year-round! Our wi-fi system will be expanded soon to accomodate everyone's Kindles, I-everything, and smart phones. We've had a rash of broken boxsprings due to little jumpers, but we have replacements on hand in case we've missed replacing one....just let us know! Be sure to book hotel-direct to to get extra perks like a $20 daily breakfast credit and 1pm check out time!

Thank you and we look forward to your next visit!

This hotel is dated and not luxurious, but because of the large pool area it is hard to beat in Estes if you have kids -- particularly in the off season because the pool is indoor. The pool is open 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., which is also a plus. Our room was in the most remote corner of the hotel, which was fine. All hallways are indoors and the outdoor entrances are locked 24/7 (room key required for entrance). The room was simple. Although it was not a dump, it hadn't been vacuumed and there was visible dirt and gravel in places. Also, the tub needed a new caulk job, and there appeared to be a leak in the ceiling over the tub that had been recently patched. After a few showers, this patch became detached (see photo). Despite these flaws, though, we had a nice stay. It was quiet, and our kids (7 and 4) wore themselves out in the pool each night. We didn't eat at the restaurant based on reviews. There is no complimentary breakfast. The next time we visit Estes w/the kids, I'll certainly consider staying here again for the right price. If it is just my wife and me, we will look elsewhere.

Room Tip: There are several rooms with balconies overlooking the indoor pool. You may want to ask for one; I w...

Hello:

Thank you for your feedback. We do have Estes Park's best pool and hot tub. We also have a terrific bar & grill, room service, and fitness center. Hotel-direct web bookings include $20 daily breakfast credit, 1pm checkout, and free afternoon wine and beer reception-for everyone. My apologies for the celing and caulk (all rooms just recaulked this week). Our roofer has a had a difficult time pinning down the leak source in that room which have required weekly patch jobs with recent (and welcome) welcome rains.

Thank you and please watch our website for specials throughout the year.

We booked online directly with the Rocky Mountain Park Inn website and received a great rate, a later check-out time, as well as daily breakfast vouchers for the on site restaurant. Check-in/check-out was friendly and easy. Our room was clean, comfortable, and certainly met our needs for two nights. It is an older hotel and it shows at times (hallways), however room furnishings, linens, and common areas all seem to be updated. The large shower head was great after long days of hiking! Our only concern was our air conditioning unit had a hard time keeping up; we could not get the room as cool as we prefer. The restaurant also offers boxed lunches for $8, which we ordered to take on our day at Rocky Mountain National Park. They were convenient and filling. Overall, this is not a shiny, new hotel if that is your expectation. However, it is a GREAT value in a tourist town, with many added conveniences for the guests.

Hello:

Thank you for your feedback. I couldn't have said it better myself! There are two other hotels in town with similar amenities, but "shinier", at $100 more per night. It's just a matter of what one's wallet can afford in an Estes Park summer.

Thank you and be sure to visit our website for specials throughout the year!

Just got back from Estes Park Co. This hotel is not what you expect because it is just that a hotel not an Inn. Should have known better when they only show one picture of the outside of the hotel on there website. It doesn't tell you that it is a facility with 4 floors and interior hallways which AAA describes as a hotel. It is also the convention center for Estes Park. The exterior doors and area which you use to enter is dirty and needs updating. The hallway carpeting is wrinkled and need updating. the rooms surprisingly clean. Did not expect that after our first impressions upon entering the actual hotel. you get fooled by the lobby. we were going to cancel our stay but every other place was booked up.

Room Tip: go some where else

Hello:

Thank you for your feedback. We have many more than one photo on our website showing our hotel including one on the landing page showing the tower, and Google searches show lots more. Our carpeting is only two years old and after walking the halls couldn't find any wrinkled areas. We have materials on order to address the elevator area. I hope you enjoyed your $20 breakfast credit, 1pm check out, and free wine and beer reception.

Thank You

One of the worst hotels I have stayed in. No closet. Could hardly get our three suitcases in the room. $168 plus lots of taxes July 3rd, $269 incl. taxes July 4th. Did not clean the coffee pot from the day before, left old coffee in the pot and the coffee and filter in the coffee maker. There has to be better places to stay in Estes Park.

Hello:

Thank you for your feedback. Every one of our rooms comes with a closet and our rooms are each 300 sq feet or larger - very average. We can't do much about the 7.5% sales tax, but I hope housekeeping adressed your missed coffee when you brought it to our attention. Happy hour is FREE every afternoon and breakfast is discounted by $20 with hotel-direct web bookings. Visit us again in January for only $69!

Thank you
