We stayed in the Chalet Suite. It was beautiful, comfortable, quiet, clean, and cozy! Excellent staff! Both the front desk and the cleaning staff were very friendly and always helpful. I was disappointed at first because the pull-out couch mattress was badly stained, but I called the front desk and within 5 minutes they delivered a mattress that looked brand... More

Our stay here was AMAZING! They have great hospitality! The rooms are squeaky clean and the kitchenette is awesome! If you are coming to Estes Park and want somewhere quiet and cozy to stay, this is the place!!! We will definitely be coming back!😊

It was spotless clean and exactly what we expected. Quiet place to stay. Very easy access to downtown and the RMNP. Breakfast was not much to choose from. But enjoyed the free bottled water and snacks daily. Would stay here again.

The staff was very friendly upon our arrival. The room was clean, but not quite the way it was explained in some other reviews. The bed was super hard. Both of our backs were killing us the two mornings after we slept on it. The mattress was as hard as the floor. Also, this room is not for people who... More

I wasn't sure about this roadside inn, but it was better than expected. The front desk staff were very kind and professional. When we arrived, the attendant made dining recommendations and made us a reservation at the Dunraven. Great suggestion. The Sweetheart studio was actually a large, open, airy room with a view, and a heart-shaped tub in the room.... More

My wife and I recently stayed in the Grindel Suites and we had a great time! We really loved the cozy feel of the property as soon as we drove in, the landscaping does wonderfully to impart the feeling of mountain isolation. The room was fantastically clean as was the in-room jacuzzi tub, something my wife was slightly nervous about.... More

We stayed at this quirky hotel last week which was reminiscent of a European alpine lodge. The lobby was located in the middle of the first building and the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Johnny. The layout was initially confusing. From the lobby, we had to go up an elevator or stairs to get to the "ground floor" of... More

We did not have the "room with a view" but still felt like the room was comfy, well-thought out and a special getaway. Our room was on the bottom floor close to the road, but other than the sirens, we really did not hear any noises. The lay-out of the room was relaxing and meant for the romantic getaway. Large...
