“End of season stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were displaced due to the flood and spent five days at the Inn. Even though it is older it is in excellent shape with more up to date ammenities than most motels. The rooms are very clean with flat screen TV'S coffee makers with GOOD coffee, lots of bathroom stuff and everything you need. Two very good resturants are within walking distance. We highly recommend the Inn as we are quite fussy travelers

We stayed at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn during the September flood. Fran & Jay Grooters and their staff were wonderful. They made every effort to insure us that we were safe and would have a room for as long as we needed to stay. The Inn is not new but it is very comfortable and exceptionally clean and a short distance from downtown Estes Park. If it hadn't been cloudy we would have had a beautiful view of the mountains. I would highly recommend Alpine Trail Ridge Inn to anyone who wants a comfortable, clean and friendly home-away-from-home. I have stayed here before and will always stay here when in Estes Park.

This is the kind of place you stayed with your parents on the family driving trips you took with them 30 years ago. Everything about it was old school charm. The rooms were nothing special, but they were clean, well maintained, and reasonably priced. It is just outside of the chaos of Estes Park (which is good after you see it). It is between Estes Park main area and Rocky Mountain National Park. The visitor center was just a few miles (minutes) down the road so the location was great for the park. Food was a few miles back towards town center. Highly recommend Smokin Daves BBQ for dinner and Donut Haus for breakfast.

We stayed with Jay and Fran at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn during the flood in September 2013. We have stayed with them many times in the past, and even with the terrible flood situation, the service we received was still second to none. I highly recommend this motel. It is always extremely clean and the staff is always knowledgeable about what is going on around Estes and in the park. They knew what roads were open to where, which was extremely helpful when we were ready to check out. Fran and Jay, who run the motel, truly care about each and every guest and want to make sure, not only that your stay with them is exactly what you hoped for, but that you also get home safely. Not many motels care about each individual customer that way. Once you stay with Jay and Fran, you will be their friend. And what good friends to have! And they really took good care of the Park Rangers and helicopter crews that stayed there during the flood, even going so far as to arrange for local restaurants to change their hours to accommodate these folks who came in to help during the flood.

Room Tip: We like room 135. It is right across from the office, so it is handy to go get ice or hot beverages...

I had the opportunity to stay while assisting with the restructuring an rebuilding of the Park and the town after/during the flooding. The staff was excellent and the accommodations were just what was needed after long days of work. Upon my next return to Estes I wil be once again staying at the Alpine.

I would highly recommend a stay here. We were there during the flood in Sept. Everyone in the office was very helpful in getting us out of the area and back to the airport. They also knew what was open and helped us figure out where we could go and what we could do. The room was very comfortable and we had a great view of the mountains ( or it would have been if not for all the rain). The first evening we were there we saw elk across the street in the meadow. We plan to go back to Rocky Mt. National Park in the future when the weather is good and I would definitely stay here again.

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.
