“Pleasant Stay and Beautiful Views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Although the hotel is older, the accommodations were acceptable to us. (If your expectations are high you will be disappointed). We were only there to sleep. The location and scenery was the reason we were there, and the price was acceptable.

I realize Estes Park is a tourist area. But this hotel is way over priced. We had a Mini Suite on the first floor. It felt like a Basement of an old house. The ceiling in the bathroom was only 7 ft tall and felt very cramped. The beds were wore out, the pillows were flat, and the sofa bad was lumpy. Will not stay here again.

I booked the hotel by making an educated guess on Priceline. It was the only one star hotel that advertised a named hotel rate. As I didn't see any really awful places while driving around Estes Park and because I had two 14 year old boys that just didn't need the frills of a romantic hotel I took a chance on the unnamed $88.00 one star hotel. It was as I guessed the Roadway Inn.
As others have pointed out it is dated and does not have flat screen TVs. So who needs flat screen TVs when you are hiking in the National Parks and enjoying the town.

The pool and hot tub were nice and the boys discovered the game room which made this a 5 Star property in their eyes.

The room was clean, comfortable and the bed was firm. The bathroom was, well, a standard bathroom. To those who need fancy, go book else where. To those those with a family that needs space and want value then this place is for you.

As other reviewers have commented, this is an older property. The decor and fixtures of the rooms are dated. However, in our experience the rooms were very clean, the complimentary breakfast was of good quality (albeit plain), and the staff especially made for a nice experience.
Don't miss the gorgeous full story fireplace in the main room - very 70s. It's unique, and kinda neat!

Went for 3 day reunion over 4th and was very disappointed with this very overpriced hotel. Premium room include very small fridge and microwave and not much room. Breakfast was poor with no selection and staff was rude. For $130.00 a night was expecting a lot better. Only stayed as the rest of family was there.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't really recommend this motel because, as other reviewers have noted, it's really showing its age. It's got a very '70s vibe; the current owners have kept it up enough to meet the modest requirements of the Rodeway chain, but you can see how it's a money pit that, frankly, needs some more money put into it. Rooms are OK, and they've been modestly updated, but we still didn't have things like flat screen TVs or nice bathrooms. The beds were OK. Breakfast is extremely modest; cereal, bad bagels and a waffle machine. This would all be OK if you paid something like 60 bucks, but Estes Park motels tend to be expensive in season, and this place is no exception. Bottomline, I'd look elsewhere first, as the reviews here correctly summarize the quality and value. It's mediocre at best. Best feature is probably the large indoor pool, obviously built when the property was "fancier" than it is today.

We read good reviews about the hotel and decided to try it out. Quite disappointed. The room we stayed in was very small and basic. The sink was in the room itself, there was no coffee maker in the room. It was clean but unless pressed to do so, we will not be staying there again.
