The web site made the place look half way decent so we booked the last three days of our Colorado trip at Sunnyside knolls. The place, specially the bathroom probably hadnt been remodeled since maybe 1972 or 73. The bathroom fan was just slightly quieter than a jet engine. But the reason we left after just one night was the over powering chemical toxic smell of Fabreeze.
The bathroom was so 1973 creepy we didnt even take showers the next morning just left as early as we could. I saw a previous post that said they go into the jacuzzi tub after a long hike....too gross to even consider.
My recommendation for estes park would be to visit in an off season and stay at one of the chain hotel. It seems that these old resorts just dont want to put any money back into the properties... for at least the 25 years.
For the $131 a night or at anyprice this was one of the worst room we ever had.
We ran into the maintenance guy that evening cause our shade wouldnt close and he said he has to take Benidryl cause the Fabreeze smell is so strong.
We were in Estes Park August 8 which was the peak of the season and all the other place were booked or over $200/night so we didnt have a choice to move to someplace else we could afford so we just left the area. We were looking forward to a couple relaxing days of hiking in the area but the room was just so bad we chose to leave. The resort did refund the two days we had reserved but didnt use.
