This hotel is located on a lake with a walking path (about 4 miles) surrounding the lake. The views of the mountains & sunsets are beautiful. Unfortunately, there is limited seating outside for hotel guests (the shaded balcony area is reserved for restaurant guests). We visited the second week of July and the weather was beautiful and sunny. We would... More

Decent room but nothing fancy: the price comes from the spectacular view. Bathroom sink outside the bathroom (near the bed!) is awkward. Hairspray for your sheets, anyone? We had a lake/mountain view that was absolutely stunning and there is a nice walking trail accessible from the common areas. Breakfast in the restaurant was very expensive but delicious. Restaurant service was... More

We stayed as a family of 4 for three days over the 4th of July. We arrived on July 3rd and stayed through the 5th leaving on the 6th. As many of you know, Estes Park is a VERY popular destination for the 4th of July...having said that...you will likely over pay to stay just about anywhere. I have been... More

Problem with air conditioning not working properly. It was fixed eventually but was noisy. Breakfast was very poor service with only one staff member for quite a few people. The orders for the 4 of us got confused and there was no orange juice or granola available. Surely a hotel of this size could plan the demand for breakfast?

This hotel was nice, but save your money and stay somewhere else. The location is nice, right off the lake, but the rooms are just average and not what you would expect for $300 plus per night. The bed was comfortable, that's the best thing the room had going for it. And the staff at checkout was rude. I was... More

This hotel, beautifully situated on the lake shore, is very comfortable and well equipped. It's a bit away from the busy central section of the city, but that's a bonus in terms of peace and quiet. It is a good place to stay, but service in the restaurant (especially at breakfast) and bar was very slow. The staff were very... More

Like a lot of hotels, they call themselves a resort because they have a pool, a hot tub, a work out area, and a small arcade/billards room. First the good. We got the room with a view of the lake. Wow, what a spectacular view of Lake Estes with Longs Peak in the background. In the morning with the lake... More

Stayed two nights...$$$ was ok was expecting a lot more for almost 4 hundred a night. Food wasn't great. Room was small with really cheap small tv. Best part was outside...but rented pontoon for a day and didn't catch a thing in that lake!!! No one did. Overall average but found many other places we would stay instead next time!

I'll start by saying I have spent more than 30 nights in over a dozen different hotels in the past year alone, and I have never taken the time to write a negative review on any hotel before. But this experience was the worst! I reserved a room with a mountain view for 3 nights (for a cost of roughly... More

Our stay was fine. We ended up with a garden room and it didn't have air conditioning. It did cool down by 10:30 pm with the windows open. Only one option to eat at hotel, expensive dining. Location to Estes Park is good. We did enjoy sitting out at the lake. We were awoke at 12:30 am to the sound... More
