My wife and I booked a unit here with only a day's notice, which is incredible considering that it was Estes Park in August. We weren't sure what to expect considering the category it was in on Trip Advisor. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. I was a little nervous about our reservation and wondered what the demeanor of the staff would be like considering the negative reviews on Trip Advisor, but our check-in went off without a hitch. As we approached our room we noticed how close the river was to the units--no more than 25 ft. from each patio/balcony. The atmosphere throughout our whole stay was very peaceful and quiet (except for the wonderful river, of course). This is not necessarily a place for kids, and I could see why the owners and other guests may not take kindly to the noisy variety. Our unit was neat and clean, though a little dated in some respects (not unlike a typical ma and pa motel). It was on the small side (maybe 15 x15 including the bathroom) but had everything you'd want (well, except internet but you're in the Rockies, after all). Our bed was a queen and there was a small desk, love seat, coffee table, kitchenette with a microwave, toaster, and minifridge, and best of all a great stone fireplace with supplied wood. The walls were all knotty pine paneling, which reminded me of my grandparents' cabin. The bathroom was clean and tidy. I noticed placards with rules on nearly every wall, but I've seen such things often in ma and pa motels--just things to remind people of common sense and respect. Sliding patio doors off of the living area opened up to the patio, and we kept it open all of the time to hear the river (plus there was no A/C, not that that was a problem). On the patio there was a gas grill and a table and chairs. Partitions separated the patios for a litte bit of privacy. Great views of the mountain from here as well. Overall cleanliness (I'm convinced anything shy of $500 a night is not going to be perfect) was an 8 or 9 out of 10. At $94 a night directly through the front desk, I think this was an absolute bargain, especially in Estes. I can't imagine taking a risk anywhere else. Not only did we love the quaint room and the quiet atmosphere, but most of the other motels/cottages/cabins aren't nearly as close the woods and river. Highly recommend.
