The Lodge is outside of 'downtown' Estes Park. This is great if you want to be away from the crowds and tourist traps, but it is a bit of a drive to restaurants, shops, gas, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Luckily the friendly staff showed us a 'short cut' to get to RMNP without having to go through Estes Park proper to get there. The room was nice and I enjoyed the 24 hour water and tea making capability in the lobby, but I did encounter some specific issues. By the time I went down to breakfast our first morning, a lot of items were gone (one cereal, butter, napkins, bagels, juice, forks) and no one came around the whole time I was there to refill anything. The second morning was better and someone was refilling items on a regular basis. The shower in our room was an issue. The first day, I had to struggle to find a comfortable temperature. The second day was a lost cause. It was either scalding hot or ice cold. I ended up not being able to shower at all and washed my hair in the small bathroom sink.
