“Excellent place to stay!! Highly recommended.”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 6 years. Although the name and the management has changed, the quality has not. This is a very comfy place to stay near everything in Estes Park. Near the town full of shops and restaurants, also only a few miles from 2 entrances to Rocky Mountain Natl Park. The staff here is always amazing! Friendly and helpful! The rooms are modern and have all the amenities you need. Flat screen TV, microwave and fridge in the rooms. It's a 2 story hotel, with pool and hot tub, seasonal, of course. They offer a free continental breakfast in the lobby as well. We LOVE staying here, and the rates are reasonable. We have stayed at other hotels in the area, but this one is far above the rest.

Room Tip: Any room is a great room here!

I stayed here during the off season for a very reasonable rate. The room was clean, comfortable, and had a rustic theme. The bed was comfortable. The room window looks out at beautiful mountain views (which are tough to miss in Estes Park). Unfortunately, the window also looks out onto the walkway, so you must choose views or privacy. The breakfast was simple; donuts, coffee, yogurt, cereal, juice, etc. Overall, this was a great experience.

Room Tip: All rooms face the mountains. Get one on the second floor for an optimal view.

We have stayed at this property for several years when we go to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park in the fall to see the aspens and hear the elk bugling. The management always makes us feel so welcome; they can't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the complimentary breakfasts are adequate, and complimentary snacks and juices are available all day. We think that it is an excellent value for the money. Estes Park was badly hurt by the floods in the summer of 2013, but it has recovered very well. Brownfield's Trading Post and the Plum Creek Shoe Station in the town, and the Estes Park Mountain Shop two miles east of the hotel are great places to shop, too.

Room Tip: Be sure to set your parking brake carefully; the view is great because the hotel is on a hillside!

We have stayed here twice now. Both times we found rooms were clean, quiet. It is conveniently located and easy access to RMNP. We found it to be well priced and appreciated that it was pet friendly. It isn't a five star plush hotel, but clean and we'll maintained. Exactly as expected for the price.

It was a short stay at Estes park but the hotel was fantastic. Has a cabin type feel. Very clean room and you could see the rocky mountains from the room. The view is simply amazing. Would definitely go back.

Comfortable, clean room with a great view. What I liked best about this hotel was the friendly and helpful staff. Enrique was very helpful, suggesting different day trips, advising on the road conditions due to the floods in September, and sharing information about Estes Park. It was a treat to walk out every morning to a magnificent view of the mountains on our way to the office for a free continental breakfast. Breakfast time lasted until 10:30 which is nice for late sleepers. Once breakfast time was over, they provided snacks, juice, bottled water, coffee, hot water for tea or cocoa all day long. Thank you Hotel Estes for providing a home away from home on our very first trip to Estes Park. We will definitely stay at Hotel Estes when we return.

This is a motel. The rooms are adequate in size, the western décor fits, the view from the window is great. The washer&dryer in the service building came in handy. There's a pool and hot tub, closed when I stayed at the end of September. The breakfast is a bit Spartan, but your room is clean and comfortable.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of our property. We love the mountain, pine furniture in the hotel rooms. It goes very well with the surrounding mountains. Our pool, as well as one of our hot tubs, is seasonal. However, we do have one hot tub that is open year round. We truly appreciate your input on the breakfast. Due to guest reviews like yours, we have expanded our breakfast offerings. Please feel free to email us if you have any suggestions for improvements at the property. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you soon!
