“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Alpine Trail Ridge. The room, bed and shower were small but clean and comfortable.

No complimentary breakfast but coffee and hot chocolate was available in the office. A small, continental breakfast would have been nice -- muffins, orange juice, fruit.

The office staff was very nice and helpful. They recommended the best places to go to see the elk -- which is what we went there for.

A better map of Estes Park would be helpful -- the one we got from the office was hard to read and follow. The map we got at the Rocky Mountain National Park Visitor's Center was much better.

Location was good.

I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 117, Western Unit -- it's situated where you can't park your car in f...

We came to Estes Park with no reservations and after driving through town stopped here. The room rates were more than reasonable and to our surprise the room was one of the cleanest we've stayed in. This is not your usual cookie cutter motel with a plastic non caring staff. We were greeted warmly and cheerfully. The staff answered all of our questions about the area and the Rocky Mt. Natl. Park. There is no such thing as too many towels or pillows and we were not disappointed. Individual parking places in front of each unit was another delightful surprise, I hate lugging stuff from car to room. If we ever come back to Estes Park we will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are ground floor, no stairs to climb.

We have been going to ATRI for years and keep going back because they have the best and most knowledgeable and friendly staff by far! They have the cleanest rooms by far and are accommodating to any need you may have. They offer free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, which is nice. We also have enjoyed the outdoor heated pool. Parking is reserved right at your doorstep and is always quiet. They have great view of the mountains (we request balcony rooms), and it is an easy short drive into Rocky Mtn. We LOVE Jay and Fran, who have run the Alpine for years, and Robert Burns who is the BEST photographer. We always look forward to seeing what new pictures he has and making a purchase and ALWAYS buying a new calendar. We consider them all family. We always book with them and would not consider anyone else.

Room Tip: You will really enjoy the balcony and the view of the mountains if you choose a room with one.

My wife and I have stayed at the Alpine a number of times over the years and have always been pleased with clean, comfortable rooms with a wonderful view of the mountains. This past July was very significant as my wife became ill with altitude sickness before our arrival date (we were camping). The staff were very caring getting wife settled in bed early in the morning long before normal check in. With a wonderful caring staff and great rooms you can't go wrong!

We come back each year for the Highland Festival and love staying at the ATRI. Rooms are clean, parking is always guaranteed and staff is friendly. I wish our mattress had been a bit firmer. This hotel is very quiet and it's nice not needing the air conditioning in September.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

We loved staying at the ATRI! The space is perfect and affordable, in other words, you're not paying for things you don't need and in fact you are given comforts equivalent to twice as the expensive hotels. We stayed there the night before a 3 day back country hike and it was wonderful...they even let the other couple that we were hiking with check in early after a 16 hour drive from Texas! The sleep was appreciated I can tell you!
Our back-country hike did not go as planned and we ended up not being able to get to our last night's campsite - the ATRI was more than happy to accommodate us AND at a discount!

The parking was ample, although we had to park behind our room - not a long walk at all. The rooms are on the smaller side, but the beds are very comfortable. The shower is a little snug, so if youre on the big and tall side, you may want to request a room with a tub or a larger shower. Also, some rooms have balconies which are best used to take in the INCREDIBLE view of all the big mountains (Flat-top, Long's Peak and even a few glaciers). It was WELL worth the nightly fee!

The experience was lovely and I am happy to say we will make it tradition to stay there before we hike RMNP!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front have parking next to the door - so if you have small kiddos you may want to ask f...
