“Must stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We had stayed here for three nights.  Staffs are friendly and helpful.  This place is newly renovated.  The beds are very comfortable.  The room is super clean.  Complimentary breakfast is a plus.  Good location, 10 minutes drive to the entrance of the National Park and  5 minutes away from restaurant and gas station.   Next time we definitely will stay there again.

We were in town for a conference and needed a nice little place to stay, Hotel Estes fit the bill! There are many choices when you visit the beautiful touristy town of Estes Park, but we had read some good reviews about Hotel Estes. It is lodge style with a playground, laundry, pool and hot tub (seasonal). We were told it is under new ownership as of March, 2012, and they are in the process of making changes. Our furniture was very cool, big pine, mountainy look, and the bed was super comfy. We were told they are in the process of changing out the carpet. It was more of a basic style with the bathroom, but everything was VERY clean. The room had a mini fridge in it, and the heater was efficient and quiet. One really nice advantage of this place is the continental breakfast in the front office. It's a small area but had comfy chairs around coffee tables, and was never too crowded. They offered toast, bagels, english muffins, cinnamon rolls, hard boiled eggs, granola bars, fruit, all the stuff you'd want to put on those things, and actually many more packaged goodies, along with coffee and bottled water to take along. They have put together a binder full of info about Estes Park and things to do, places to go. I spoke to the young girl at the front desk who I later found out is part of the family that now owns the Hotel Estes. She was so personable, friendly and really wanted to know if there was anything at all we would suggest. I personally loved that the family ran the hotel, and really cares. The hotel was right off the road, and pretty convenient to downtown. Walking out, there are mountains all around, along with other hotels, which is typical of this area. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would stay here again.

Based on what we had seen we were expecting the typical "road side motel" type property but were pleasantly surprised. We were told at check in that the place was under new ownership and they were remodeling and refurbishing. Our room was nicely appointed and the mattress was fantastic. There are complimentary snacks and water bottles available in the lobby all day. The property is perfectly situated far enough from the hustle and bustle of the main drag but close enough to walk to shops and restaurants.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! When we first acquired the property, it was more of a road side hotel, but we have been working our hardest to steer away from that. This is why we added the snacks, bottled water and coffee in the office, which is available through out the day. Additionally, since your stay, we have acquired new carpet in most of the rooms and new trim. We are also adding more family friendly activities this year such as movie nights on the weekends, with free pizza included. Thanks for the positive feedback and we hope to see you again!

We stayed here for 4 nights during peek travel season in Estes Park. My family used to stay here in the late 1980s and 1990s when it was the Tyrol. It went downhill from the early 90s and I refused to stay here with my own family for over a decade. I found out it changed owners and decided to give it a shot. I was impressed!! Extremely friendly staff, Updated rooms, remodeled exterior, clean rooms and grounds, etc. Our kids loved it, which is a good reality check because they are picky, to say the least, when it comes to hotels - or maybe the proper word is spoiled. They especially enjoyed the pool.

I will certainly be coming back. It is a great hotel for a family visiting Estes Park. Great location, good price, fun times.

We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed the changes to the hotel! They are just the first of many more to come. Since your stay, we've also had numerous more improvements to the property. This year, we are working on making our hotel more family friendly, as this environment is something that most Estes Park hotels lack. We will be adding weekend movie nights with free pizza and a horseshoe play area. Please let us know if you have any additional suggestions! We always appreciate guest input!

We loved our room and the playground was right outside our door...my son especially liked the rocket ship! The pool was nice and so was the hot tub! The gals who work the day shift are really great and were helpful in directing us to different places. Pretty decent continental breakfast. Enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: Young children love to be close to playground!
