Twin Owls Motor Lodge happened to be the first place my husband and I saw with a vacancy light on... and no wonder. Our room was dirty. Someone else's leftovers were in the minifridge and opened water bottles were in the window sill. The shower didn't drain. The room was very hot upon arrival and we couldn't get the air... More

We are travelers who have visited over thirty countries and stayed in all types of motels/hotels ranging from 2 to 5 stars. This motor lodge is the worst place we have ever stayed. It is unkempt and dirty, and the advertisement shows this fabulous room with a very sofisticated furniture arrangement. That might have been during opening day many, many... More

If your a budget traveler, this place is ok. If you want a place that is REAL laid back with not many rules, this place is ok. If you don't want to pay 200 - 300 bucks a night in pricey Estes, this place is ok. Now, if you want pampered, great beds, AC, food, towels ironed and warm cookies... More

There's a reason every other hotel has a "no vacancy" sign except this one. It's UNBELIEVABLE they charged $100 a night for this monstrosity. Totally gross. We would have rather slept in our car. The sheets were unclean with blood spots, the bed unmade. We slept in our sleeping bags we'd used for camping. The floor was filthy and it... More

While planning a last minute trip we stumbled upon the Twin Owls Motor Lodge and picked this "lodging" because it was the only thing open and the closest motel to the town of Estes. BIG MISTAKE. The overpriced room was absolutely filthy. The towels were stained, sheets were stained from unknown sources that I certainly do not want to imagine... More

Was doing Ride the Rockies and got assigned to this place. When every place in town is booked you take what you can get. Very rundown. no microwave in room. I was not even will to sleep under the sheets. Still, it had hot water and beat sleeping on the streets. Would not recommend.

Facility is sad outside and inside - just shows a huge lack of upkeep and very outdated. Broken tiles, Loose stair stones, signs old and peeling, furniture sitting out in front of rooms, Lobby is overcrowded, outdated and my daughter called it "creepy". Pool is empty. Room smelled weird and very very outdated. We didn't even stay and just turned... More

Avoid at all costs. Sketchy, overpriced, dirty, creepy, greasy, bug infested, nasty, noisy, smelly, completely unpleasant, rude staff. This is the sort of motel people are spoken of as being "last seen at"

This is the absolute worst "lodging" you could imagine! Dirty, nasty, old stained sheets, towels, bedding. If you even think about it please check trip advisors reviews first. Decided at last minute to stay another night in Estes park. There wasn't any vacancies in town except here. First mistake: not checking reviews. 2nd mistake: wondering why this was the only... More

When we first arrived here I was a bit shocked to be really honest, this motel is so rundown and in such desperate need of any kind of TLC, but as I had booked it under Bookings.com and paid I knew we had to just accept what was in front of us! OK the surprise was the king size bed... More
