The folks at the Saddle & Surrey Motel were so gracious and helpful during the recent monsoon flooding in CO. After camping for several days in rainy Rocky Mountain National Park we were intending to head to Boulder when the washed out roads and stranded us in Estes Park.
We decided to stay here and got a nice, clean, very affordable room for what ended up being two nights. We were able to dry off, watch the news, and stay dry after days of being very wet. During the first night, half the motel was flooded and guests were forced to evacuate to the local Red Cross shelter. 3 feet of water had built up against the back of the motel and eventually broke through in a torrential waterfall.
Our room was spared, but we couldn't go anywhere the next day because of road closures. Despite the fact that the motel owners were up all night fighting the water and trying to dry out the office, as well as their home in back, they were accommodating and gracious. Even apologetic they couldn't provide the usual morning pastries and coffee.
I can't say enough about what a nice motel this is, and, more importantly, what great people the owners and staff are!!
