When we arrived the setup kinda reminds you of the the 70's. When you go into the office you are really back in time. The office had an "old people" odor about it which set us back somewhat. We decided if our room was like this we were going elsewhere. The room was very clean and did not smell. The... More

The Columbine Inn has coziness and charm that you can't get from a chain. The classic old-time feel of the clean rooms was a real plus for me. One thing I really liked was that each room has a bench in front of it. Watching fellow travelers from across the country stop and chat with each other as they enjoyed... More

We only stayed 1 night, but it was a nice experience. It was a little like stepping back in time. The room had a retro feel and was spotlessly clean. Parking is right outside your door. The lobby was large and comfortable with hot coffee always available. It is very reasonably priced for such a busy tourist town.

We stayed here for the second year in a row. Great value for Estes Park. WiFi was great all but the last night. Small fridge in the room. No hair dryer but they will lend you one for the stay. Nice older gentleman runs the place - very nice. Will stay again!

We stayed in the Family Suite at the inn. It had a nice-sized bedroom with a king bed and a sink, a "living room" with foldout sofa for the kids to sleep on, a kitchenette with small refrigerator, microwave, oven, sink, toaster, coffeemaker, and a full bath. The kitchen table and chairs were in front of a bay window, and... More

If you are ready to go back to the 50s, this may be your spot. This place charges bottom dollar in a popular tourist town, so don't be too surprised at what you get. The room was tiny. Things we now consider standard are not there: Closet? No. Well, there must be a dresser to put your clothes in, right?... More

i knew when i booked this place, that it was more of an older, old-fashioned motel. Nothing wrong with that at all. The room was a tad bit on the small size but when you're vacationing and only need a place to sleep, size doesn't matter. It was extremely clean. I even did the white-glove test and guess what -...

The room smelled, no hot water in the shower, the bed hurt our backs, not good room amenities and the innkeeper was un-helpful with a very bad attitude... in our opinion you'll be better off to stay in your car!!!

I wasn't expecting to stay at such an old motel. No microwave or coffee pot or dresser or hair dryer. Had to ask for soap and toilet paper. The tv was on a side wall so only one person can see it. Only one outlet was 3 prong which I needed. What a place!
