“I WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE”
Reviewed March 20, 2010

My husband and I have been coming here every March for the last 4 years for our Anniv. and my birthday. We are treated very well here. We extended our stay by three days this time and we are so happy that we did. The staff was very accomidating, Betsy is a jewel. She always so friendly and helpful. We used the Laundry Room this trip, they provide the Detergent and softner, they charge $1.50 per load. We borrowed Scrabble one night, this was found in the laundry room with several other games to play, they let you use their movies free of charge as well. You have from 10:30 to 1:30 to have your room cleaned. The wonderful woman I mentioned Betsy lives on sight and is for the most part available with in reason to her own family and personal time after hours. The hot tub is nice and the parking is better for transporting items and getting to your car in the cold if you stay in an upper room. Room #11 I think is best, not to close to the office not to close to the road. You can get your own firewood that they provide in a wheel barrow by the office (they provide a wood carrier for you too) In the Laundry room are menues of quite a few restaurants in the area. Full kitchen, QUIET ROOMS. Every room overlooks the river. We actually had a Blue Jay land on our deck and a Fox walked by last night as well. The wireless worked just fine and they provide a blow dryer. Oh yeah and they have Jetted bath tubs. Very NIce, DO IT, COME TO THE WOODLANDS IT IS GREAT!! close to the RMNP and to a wonderful restaurant the Twin Owls, Romantic and $$ in a 1920's log cabin. Upscale dinning, I asked about attire , casual. Go for it!!!

My sister and I stayed at the Woodlands the first week of March. The 1 bedroom condo was large, clean and well equipped for our needs. The King Bed was one of the most comfortable "hotel" beds I've ever slept in. It was nice having a real wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen was small, but equipped to suit our needs. The bathroom was large with a nice, hot shower and the tub was jetted making for a very nice bath. The view of the river outside our front door was nice and the mountain sheep that appeared on the road in front one day added a great bonus!! The location on the river is peaceful and relaxing in spite of the road in front. Also, it is between the town of Estes Park and the Fall River entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park making it very convenient. We will definitely stay here again!

We spent three nights at the Woodlands in early September. The price for the Woodlands was one of the lowest for a condo we could find in Estes Park and looked like one of the nicest. The outside has a pretty and woodsy feel with chairs or balconies for every room overlooking the river.

We had a one bedroom condo which was on the upper level. However, the back parking area is level with the back of the condo so there are no stairs to climb if that is a concern. The room was very nice and looked to be recently updated with newer furniture and fixtures. Everything you could need to cook was available along with a basket of snacks. There was a TV in the living room and one in the bedroom.

Even though the place was fully booked, we hardly saw or heard anything from the other guests. Everything was very quiet and peaceful. The only thing I could see that might be an issue is the lack of air conditioning for the summer months although it doesn't get too hot in Estes Park. I think most places in Estes Park do not have air conditioning though. There are celing fans however, and all the windows open so you can get a good, fresh breeze. We loved leaving the door to the balcony open for the fresh air and sound of the river bubbling by. Overall we loved the Woodlands and would stay here again.

My wife and I have frequented Estes Park for a few years and stayed in several specialty lodges. We decided to switch it up this time through and give the Woodlands a try. The rate was right on and just under what we normally pay at a nearby lodge. We were impressed by the king bed, real wood fireplace, full kitchen, and general cleanliness of the place. Bring the water pressure in the shower up a couple notches so I can have a soothing shower after a long, cold day of winter hiking and I'll be completely sold!

This was our first time in Estes Park and I could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations, especially for $99. The lodging is right on Fall River so you can open your front door and listen to the river. The room was very comfortable. Had everything that we needed (fridge, fireplace, comfy bed and sofa). Property is small but very pretty. It was too cold to hang around outside but we did sit by the river enjoying coffee in the morning. On our last morning a flock of turkeys paid us a visit. They have a vast collection of DVDs and a map and contact info for all of the restaurants in town. Very impressive level of service at check-in. They anticipated our every question. Only problems we ran into were: could not get wireless to work, did not have any starters for the fire and wood was not delivered to our room (we were able to go get it ourselves), newspaper was not delivered, and housekeeping skipped our room so we didn't get fresh towels. Not quite sure what happened to the service once the weekend arrived. Nevertheless, I would easily recommend this property. We didn't want a newspaper anyway. If I go back to Estes Park I will strongly consider this property again.

The setting is gorgeous with the mountains , the river, and wildlife at your doorstep. Rocky Mt. National Park is just a couple of miles away. We found the management to be very friendly and accomodating. The suites were very clean and very well equipped. We have stayed here numerous times and continue to recommend it to our friends. Anytime of the year makes for a wonderful visit.
