DO NOT STAY HERE!!! The room was run down and had cracks in the walls and floors and cobwebs in the corner. The swimming pool was out of order and the hotel had garbage collecting in corners all over the place. There were chairs and tables out of their rooms just sitting in the walkways. There was a pull out... More

The owners are trying to do some updates but the are halfway doing them. Our room had wood laminate flooring. Laid over the carpet and around the beds. One bad was as hard as concrete. One was so soft you melted into the mattress. The room appeared clean but we didn't look to close. Our friends patio door didn't lock.... More

This Econ Lodge was so very sad and shabby. The overall room seemed clean as I inspected the sheets and bathroom...even smelling everything. But the bed clothes were wriggled, ill fitting and carelessly put on the bed. Besides two queen beds there was a faded, well used sofa and a fairly nice chair. The rest of the furnishings and amenities... More

This motel is in serious need of remodeling and new management. We prepaid for two nights lodging and contemplated going some place else. We arrived at noon (check-in is 2) and inquired if we could check in early and was it possible to have a room that didn't require climbing stairs. Sure. We went to the room and found that... More

This place was disgusting, room was dirty, hair on sheets, extension cords running from one room to another over hangers. Price tags still on floor boards (that didn't appear new) and then just carpet under the beds. There was something on the wall that looked like feces. We were in a suite and the extra room had an attached mystery... More

Our 18yo daughter, her friend, and I stayed here for one night (8/6/16) and that was one night too many! There were people partying outside of their rooms on the main floor and they stared down us down as went to our room on the second floor. The room was dirty, hairs on pillows, and blood stains on curtains AND... More

I have had great experiences with EconoLodge in several different locations, so I didn't hesitate to book with EconoLodge in Estes Park, figuring that I would be safe going with a name I was already familiar with. I was sadly mistaken and will be more careful booking in the future, as this place has undoubtedly proven that the same quality... More

I know this is an economy hotel, but it's not even 1 star. The front desk man was getting high right after check in. One room had someone already sleeping in it. All our rooms were dirty. Breakfast was a huge disappointment.

Ugh! I don't need a fancy hotel, Motel 6's are usually fine for us, but this hotel was disgusting. They are about 50 years behind on updating the rooms and deep cleaning them! We were late driving up and didn't arrive until 9:40 p.m. cleaning lady in parking lot asks us what room we were searching for. We tell her,... More
