“Unbelievable --caring, gracious staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

First let me say we came to the Coyote straight from the Red Cross Shelter--zip line rescuees from Glen Haven flooding. We came with two golden retrievers and each a backpack!! Jessica kept the office open late to receive us and was extremely helpful. Our accommodations were clean, attractive and very comfortable. We can't say enough for this facility and it's staff. A disaster brings out the true character of people and facilities--and I rate excellent in all categories for the Coyote!! Any who have complained about issues outside their control--like wireless service--need to understand that these services were disrupted in the entire area!! Our hats off to Jessica and when I come back in 6 months to a year to remove my car stranded on a Glen Haven mountain, I will bring her some Tootsie Rolls!

Oh, got our first view of Elk from our balcony!!

Basically Coyote Mountain Lodge was one of the greatest hotel/hospitality experiences we've ever had. We were completely stranded in Estes Park for 3 days due to the flooding in Colorado. Sadie and her mother basically helped us in every manner possible and then some. They let us use their dryers to dry our completely soaked clothing (we tried camping in the Rocky Mountains the night before to pretty disastrous results). They let us use their phone to make important phone calls, direct us to where ever they thought we could get help, and even arranged for someone to give us a ride over the mountains (the only road out of town at that point). We would have never caught our flight out of Colorado otherwise.

We should also mention we had a great room for a cheap price, and basically everything we needed there. We just wanted to say thanks and let everyone know that this place really saved us when we were desperate. We can't recommend it enough.

We booked this motel for two nights based on the other recommendations posted of Trip Advisor. I must admit we were disappointed with the property as it was outdated and in need of some upgrades. We got a king room and it was hard to move around because of the limited space. I had a difficult time trying to maintain the temperature in the room as the A/C didn't seem to blow cold air during the warmer part of the day. The heating unit in the room seemed to be generating heat even with the thermostat set low which should have shut it off.

Our room was at the far end of the property and the so called wireless internet connection was spotty and several times I had to go outside to pick up a signal. I complained to the front desk about this and they said the recent flooding had impacted their wi-fi so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. They were still in recovery mode in Estes Park from the recent flooding and I'll give the place credit for trying to help out the local residents who had been flooded out of their homes.

Room Tip: If you can't lift your luggage stay on first floor as no elevator.

Following the disastrous flooding of two weeks ago, Estes Park, Colorado has been virtually isolated at a most in opportune time.......the peak fall tourist season with the annual elk rut!!

Because of the flooding, a normal hour drive from just north of Denver, has become a three hour adventure! All of Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park's campgrounds have closed for the season, as well as the seven private campgrounds in the Estes Park area......to my point......the hosts refused to charge me anything to park my camper on a nice level area next to their lodge....just asked if I would mention it on TRIP ADVISOR. Thank you Coyote management!!

Roomy unit, older in styling, but well maintained. Friendly helpful front desk. Good location, just outside of the downtown area. Free parking. Had a jaccuzi & pool that we did not use. We stayed here on the run-up to July 4, so peak of tourist season. Rate for this time was $89/night. Considering season and tourist location, rate was competitive. Recommended.

Booked a vintage room as we were staying in multiple hotels and motels. This was an interesting choice. It would have been OK but we had no fridge. Now, that was disappointing, given that I generally expect a fridge, more so in less expensive places.
That being said, the room was clean and tidy and the staff helpful. The rest of Estes Park was fully booked, so I was very pleased to have a room at a good price!
Nothing else to say really.

We stayed in a vintage queen room for $59. Check-in was quick and very friendly. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The bathroom is dated, but everything was spotless. The only drawback was some of the wallpaper was peeling. They do have a pool and a hot tub we did not use. It is an easy walk down the hill into town, just over a mile. We would definitely stay here again. There is no breakfast, but Safeway and McDonalds are just down the road.
