We really enjoyed our stay at Deer Crest. Ken & Carrie are great hosts. We were in room 206 and would request it again. A good sized room, comfy bed, soft towels and loveseat double recliner to put our feet up on after hiking in RMNP. True, there could be more light at the sink, but that's true of most hotels as well as the shower head could be higher, but we always run into that problem too with my 6'4" husband!
There's a fridge and microwave in the room and a VCR/DVD.
The location is great and there's nothing like leaving the windows up and having the Fall River lull you to sleep! The grounds are pretty. There are grills and patio furniture/chaise lounges to sit on. We don't usually do hot tubs, but found it to be just the thing after a 9 mile hike in the park.
We walked to Nicky's Restaurant, which is nice (try the trout!), and on our way back, a bear ran across the road about 75 yards ahead of us. We were a bit freaked out, but then again it's pretty a pretty cool thing to see. He probably would have been as afraid as us as we were of him, but just to be safe, you might want to drive!
We love the fact that the resort is non-smoking adults only and will stay there again next time we head to RMNP!
