Powered by AI
The Estes Park Resort garners mixed reviews, with its prime location near Lake Estes standing out as a highlight for many guests. While the serene lake views and inviting atmosphere are frequently praised, some travelers feel that the hotel does not provide sufficient value, citing overpricing and dated amenities. Visitors appreciate the cleanliness but note inconsistencies, particularly in the rooms which receive criticism for being neglected. Service quality varies, with commendations for staff friendliness tempered by reports of slow service.

We enjoyed our stay. We were fortunate that our room was one of the rooms that had recently been updated. The decor was beautiful. We were disappointed in the bathrobes provided. They were so small that they would have been more suitable for a child than an adult (we're average size adults). I asked the front desk for larger ones, but were told they only had one size. You need to do better in this area. We were also disappointed that you didn't have a hot tub. I would have expected one at a resort like this. We had a wonderful experience at the spa. All personnel were friendly and warm and the massages we had were exceptional. Lois, at your front desk was very helpful and friendly during our stay. I hope when we return you will have a restaurant up and running.

I had a great experience at the resort because the staff went above and beyond to help me get whatever I needed. Dominic was excellent at check in, and made sure I felt special during my stay since I was there for my birthday. He even went out of his way to help me stream some shows I wanted to watch even though there wasn't streaming in the room. As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel is a little dated but my room was wonderful with a balcony overlooking the lake and some beautiful views. Being able to walk around the lake right from the resort was fantastic. I ordered room service almost exclusively and the food was great and delivered very quickly. I would definitely go back and stay again.

Being on our honeymoon, we decided to splurge. Checking in was easy. But walking into the door was disappointing. The sink looked like it had been glued together, and not done very well. There wasn’t a sink in the bathroom, but two toilets. The big tub and fireplace was sort of romantic, but stubbing my toe getting in kind of spoiled the mood from the edge of the carpet being turned up at the edge. It’s too bad hotels costing this much can’t have a ceiling fan, or at least a better ventilation system. The rooms need a facelift. They might have been doing some as I saw workers on our floor. The spa room is in a strange place, which we didn’t get to use because of the weather. I thought the Dunraven was highly overpriced, but they had a good breakfast, which should have been included with the price of the room.

Thank you so much for your review. You are correct renovations are underway and all of the forementioned issues will be addressed. The old model hotel rooms with sinks outside the bathroom are going away, along with the carpet. I hope you can make it back to see all of the beautiful changes and I appreciate your feedback.

Guest, I am so sorry to hear that you were awoken and did not receive a good night's rest. I will look into this issue, as I am guessing it is our construction partners working on our renovation. This is no excuse for your unsatisfactory stay, and I will be looking into why this problem occurred.

This is a beautiful property. The rooms are great and we had an amazing view from our room and balcony. Every person we dealt with was amazing, Karen, in particular, went above and beyond several times. I highly recommend staying at The Estes Park Resort.

Hotel was beautiful and located next to a lake with truly amazing views from your room! Firepit patio was a perfect way to end our days. Very friendly staff. We upgraded the 2nd night to a jacuzzi room with fireplace.

I was very disappointed in the hotel. They call it a resort but that is a huge stretch. We had a "garden" room which had a view of weeds and little else. While the room was clean and the bed comfortable the hotel is very old and dated. The bathroom didn't even have a fan.! The food in the restaurant was average at best and other than the Hunter Chop House there are no other dining options if you are on foot. I assumed, incorrectly, that the hotel would have a shuttle or some means of transportation. This has been my experience in other "resorts". This is sorely needed at Estee Park Resort. There are no taxis, Uber, or public transportation. It cost us thirty dollars for a round trip ride to Safeway (probably no more that three miles) so that my husband could buy some cold medicine. This was with a private company that does ride share. Unfortunately, he was the only game in town and doesn't start until noon on the weekends. The hotel was not inexpensive! It was $334 a night plus a lodge tax of $18.37. I would not recommend this lodging to anyone.

We had a wonderful stay at Estes Park resort. We arrived a little earlier than planned and the staff went out of their way to see if our room was ready early. All the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming which made our stay veery enjoyable. Our room (we had a lake view with a balcony) was very welcoming and the view of the lake was stunning especially on the Friday evening when we were treated to a wonderful sunset. Well worth staying!

The property is on a nice setting with lake and walking path adding to the venue. However, this property is overrated and probably overpriced as well. Don't be tempted to dine at the restaurant unless you like very average food. To avoid disappointment, look further to dine out.
