We received a phone call from the hotel a couple days prior to our visit and learned the family suite for $155/night had caught on fire. We were offered a two queen single room for $114. We felt we should have received a discount for our inconvenience since we were spending 4 nights, expecting our young son to be in a separate room as those with young children will understand. (I also see we got burned on the price as a previous review paid $110 for approx. the same unit around the same time). Secondly, thought it was a bit strange that we were charged for all four night at the beginning of our visit which gave no option to leave early as the direct TV went in and out on us several times, the plug from the fridge fell out of the wall without being touched spoiling our food the 2nd night. Not to mention, cramped room with front door that would get stuck on the bed as your entered. Also puny bathroom. Continental breakfast consisted of Cheerios, milk, orange juice, and prepackaged danishes. Lastly, every time we needed ice we had to go to the front desk and ask for it. Aside from all that, the place is clean. . . however outdated "Granny" music played in the lobby/breakfast area. The view around and location was great (despite the plastic and silk flowers around the grounds) and the Manager/Owner was helpful and friendly. I wouldn't tell anyone not to stay there but would recommend not having high expectations!

$110 for a tiny cramped outdated room, We could not even open the front door all the way because it hit the bed. You can't watch the tv from the beds because it faces the cramped little sitting area.

We relocated to the Columbine from a property without A/C. At first sight, I thought "Oh no, an old fashioned motor lodge", but I was very pleasantly surprised. This place was incredibly clean!! Fresh paint, no musty odor in the rooms, good beds, and strong Wi-Fi. They have a small gas grill (a Weber) on the deck by the hot tub that we grilled bison burgers on for dinner, and we were able to watch the full moon rise over some peaks in the evening from the hot tub. Just really friendly folks in the office, too.

Because my wife and I travel with our pet dog, our lodging choices are limited to pet-friendly properties. Columbine Inn was a pleasant choice and rather economical for Estes Park. By that I mean to say Estes Park is, overall, a priceir tourist town. So, the rates at the Columbine Inn were economical for Estes Park, but they would have been over-priced had this hotel been in, say, Fort Collins.

The same gentleman who took my telephone reservation, handled the check-in and handled all of my inquiries about the locale was also the owner, and whose name totally escapes me. He was very helpful with his restaurant recommendations and local driving directions.

The hotel itself was a 1950's style motor court with some pretty garden areas and gazebo. Had the evenings been a tad warmer, an evening in the gazebo would have been a wonderful way to relax after an active day in the nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. The outdoor pool was already out-of-commission for the season. The lobby/lounge was cozy (small) but with large windows and mountain vistas. The breakfast buffet didn't have many options, and it was mostly pre-package items. We just supplemented the limited choices with groceries we bought on our own.

The room decor was more like a B&B than hotel. Small sitting area w/ TV separted from the bed. Perhaps a bit cramped, or cozy, depending on your perspective. The room was clean and furniture in good shape, albeit older. While some people might criticize the furnishings as dated, (as in suburban family room circa 1974), the feel that we we were in a guest room in someone's house, rather than a hotel, was what we enjoyed most about this property. The room came with a mini-frig, which we put to good use. The only maintenance issue was with TV reception. Not every channel came in with that HDTV clarity we now all expect.

The hotel is on one of the major roadways near the edge of town. Traffic made getting into and out of the hotel a pain at times, and it was too far to walk into central Estes Park. However, several restuarants were within easy walking distance. And we were able to see some of the local wildlife right on the hotel grounds, including elk and mule deer.

This hotel is probably best for couples who are in Estes Park for activities other than spending alot of time in their hotel. But if you want to avoid "resort" rates and just want a comfortable, basic room, the Columbine Inn would be a good choice.

On the way back to Ft Robinson, NE... We had 2 rooms for our family of 7. Easy to find, and close to everything. Overall a pleasant experience.

Realize that this is an old motel. In old I mean 60's era beds, furniture (smacked of college dorm furniture), bathrooms and heating/cooling.

That's not to say it isn't nice... The owners are pleasant and helpful, and it was quiet and clean. You will definitely get what you pay for. We would stay again.
