“Nice hotel - all you need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2009

Even though it's a little older and further away from downtown, this is a nice hotel. Great value. They offered us buy one night get one half off. It looks like several hotel upgrades had taken place. The lobby was being painted. We had a room with a balcony and view of the lake. We watched deer right outside the balcony crossing the street. There is no elevator. The room was fine with two queen beds, tv and dvd, wireless internet access, microwave, fridge, coffee pot, and hair dryer all in the room. The first night we did experience another room nearby with a smoke detecter chirping in need of new batteries. It was quickly replaced and fixed prior to our second night. The indoor pool and jacuzzi is nice compared to other hotels in the area with outdoor pools. The water was heated but it was still a little cool. Still the kids enjoyed it all. There was also a game room with air hockey, pool tables, foosball, and video games-needed a race car video game though. I think a bar would be a nice feature at the hotel either in the game room or breakfast area. The continental breakfast was good. There was make your own waffles with batter, bagels, toast, cereal, oatmeal, and pastry choices. Orange juice, milk, and coffee. I would have liked to see fruit too, bananas or something. Overall it is a great clean hotel with nice amenities.

I'd advise to check with the choicehotels.com website to make your reservations... I got a much better price than I saw on the internet. Tho Rodeway Inn is one of the economy motels from Choice Hotels, this was a lovely, clean, quality motel. As a 60 year old, I found out about the 60+ rate for this motel chain... and as it was early spring (just before a storm was to come in), there were few people there and I was upgraded to an even nicer room than I'd originally reserved. I would definitely stay here again!!!

We booked two nights at the Rodeway Inn because they are pet friendly and we have two poodles. We were looking for a pre-Thanksgiving getaway for my wife and I. It is a beautiful area and quite close to Denver where we live.

The hotel is quite run down. Needs painting and the furnishing are very shabby. Only one very thin blanket on the bed and the rooms are small.

The absolute worst thing is the heating system. It is a wall unit and very noisy. I guess it might have been OK if it had stayed on all the time but it does not. It goes off and on. At 3AM, my wife had had enough and we left. Luckily, it was only a 90 minute drive home.

A very old motel, with great views. This place needs to CLEAN UP. Rooms were out dated and very old. The beds were hard, old furnishings ,tv, old pink blankets.For one night its not too bad, for longer stays I would definately find another hotel!

Couldn't book the room on the website and when I called directly they wouldn't give the same discounts offered on the website. The whole motel is very "tired". One of the chairs cushions had been repaired with hot glue. Bathroom small, old but clean. The room was big enough for the two of us but was not worth what we paid. The security chain on the inside door had been ripped off and not replaced. There are much better places to stay in Estes if you book ahead far enough which I didn't have the luxury of doing.

We stayed in a premium 2 double bed room with 2 children. The room was very clean and comfortable. The kids loved the indoor pool and hottub. Breakfast was more than ok. The women at the 24-hour front desk were very helpful and friendly.

Because we arrived quite late we got a better rate than usual.

RodewayInnManager, Manager at Rodeway Inn Estes Park, responded to this review, September 8, 2008
We thank everyone for their honest opinions of their stay with us. We ask everyone that checks in to let us know if there is anything else we can help them with after checking in. Occasionally there will be something missed and we correct that as soon as we can. We are the managers at the Rodeway Inn since August 2006 and hope that anyone that has stayed before will give the hotel another chance since we feel we have made improvements, especially in the cleanliness category. Other improvements are slowly happening and we encourage any suggestions to be made by our guests to improve the property. Rodeway Inn is an economy brand for Choice Hotels so please don't expect the same ammenities that a mid-scale hotel offers.

We no longer employ the same staff that was here before so that the level of service and friendliness has gone up as well.

We also have had many positive comments on our catering services offered at the hotel for larger functions such as weddings, meetings, family reunions, birthday parties, seminars and classes.

We have spoken with guests that have looked at Trip Advisor before booking with us and have told us that in spite of the comments they were very pleasantly surprised when they actually stayed at the hotel. Hopefully, your stay will be the same!

Thank you,
Chester and Lil Ciezczak, Managers
and the hotel staff.

Booked this hotel due to the fact that we waited so long to make our travel plans. The Rodeway was:

a) available
b) under $200/night during high season
c) pet friendly

Our stay was fine. We booked a room with two double beds for four of us (two adults, two children) and one border collie. Would have booked a suite to give us more space, but their suites aren't pet friendly, so we stuck with the one room. It was really small, but it was fairly clean. We ended up stacking the two side chairs on top of each other and putting them in the corner to get more space. Thankfully, we didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel.

They did offer continental breakfast every day--cereal, rolls, bagels, etc. The front lobby is nicely done. Comfortable seating, internet access, etc. The breakfast area and game room gives the feeling of being in someone's basement rumpus room circa 1979, but hey, it was a clean rumpus room.

Staff was very friendly.

Not a bad place to stay if your choices are limited.

  • Liked — Clean hotel, friendly staff, location
  • Disliked — Small, dated rooms; for a pet friendly hotel, no area to exercise or walk pets
