“Our favorite place in Estes”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We have been coming to the Wildwood Inn a couple of times each year for many years. We first came when they donated a stay to the PBS auction that I was lucky enough to purchase. The people are all so friendly and accommodating. The various suites are always clean and comfy cozy. Perfectly situated near Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park and the town of Estes Park. Cook in your suite or check out the fun and fine dining in Estes. You won't find a better place to stay than here.

Room Tip: If your budget allows, get a suite with a private hot tub on the deck.

Our first trip to Colorado and what a trip it was. Wildwood Inn is quaint and very relaxing. Walking out your balcony and seeing the snow covered mountains and a large Elk named lefty was breath taking. Staff was helpful and pleasant when booking and during our stay. We stayed in the spruce room which was nicely decorated and the bed was so comfortable. Very affordable and we will be going back with the whole family next Christmas.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Wildwood Inn just after they were able to open after the horrible floods that plagued the area. The accommodations were very comfortable and more than adequate for our family of three. We stayed in the Sundance Suite, which has a pull down bed (Murphy bed). Our daughter usually gets the pull out sleeper sofa when we travel, which are almost always uncomfortable. The Murphy bed was ideal for her, as it was much more comfortable than a sofa bed.

But what really gave the Wildwood Inn the five stars from me was the management. We had a unique situation of a very severe family emergency along with a wedding, both at the same time. The staff was amazing in their helping us work through all the logistics that we had to do to deal with both situations. I can see why so many people talk about the "family" feel of this place. Even though they had just experienced their own disaster from the floods and the shutting down of the RMNP (don't get me started on this), they showed us such compassion and support in our time of stress.

I would highly recommend the Wildwood Inn just based on the accommodations. Add to that the people behind the resort and I feel that you can not go wrong. We plan on returning so that we can get the true experience of Estes Park and RMNP, minus the floods and government ineptitude.

We love it here & have returned several times.
This is the perfect combination between hotel and b&b: all of the quaint unique features of the latter, with the privacy of the former. Even in the smallest room, you get a patio and BBQ, with a gorgeous view. There is a beautiful shared hot tub room with a fireplace and music, as well as breathtaking mountain views- open til 10 pm. The great thing about the 'shared room' so that you sign up for 30 hour time slots, so you will only be in the room with the people you came with- no awkward conversations with strangers!
The staff is very friendly, (but not too invasive!) the beds are comfortable, nice TV's and bathrooms... They do offer a slightly later checkout during the off-season which was great for me.
My only complaint is that the wireless is quite spotty. But this is really to be expected whe. You are about 2 miles from RMNP.
If you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway, look no further.
They also offer several excellent deals on their website! I got a "book 2 nights and get the 3rd free" one time. They always have specials.

This is our second vist to Wildwood Inn and we can honestly say it was a very positive experience. The manager Cindy, John and Lilayne gave us exceptional customer service. We are planning to return in the springtime. The location is great, easy access to the Rocky Mountain National Park. If you want to see wildlife and take photos, this is the Inn to do so.

My husband and I stayed here during Labor Day, and we were happy with the choice.

- Location: Perfect for us as we were attending a wedding at a venue closeby. It is Nested inside Estes Park near the Rocky Mountain National Park entrance (20 mins drive). I loved waking up in the morning, going out on the patio and being surrounded by nature.

-Room: We stayed in the 'Spruce Room' which has a double bed, TV, spacious bathroom, fridge and a nice patio. The room itself isn't large nor super luxurious, but it was comfy with no added frills. Having an iron and ironing board was super convenient because we needed to press our clothes before the wedding.

- Hot tub: one of the highlights was definitely the use of the private Hot Tub located in the room opposite. You can reserve it in advance at the reception, and it is usually unoccupied. The hot tub fits six people (ie. private party!), and has a balcony, sound system, fireplace and towels. Being able to soak in a cosy tub straight after a strenuous hike felt fantastic, and we used it everyday.

- Parking: Each room has its own parking spot right outside

- Staff: Generally, quite friendly and helpful. The reception has plenty of brochures, newspapers, maps, video rentals, a library and other info which was useful for first timers like us

Room Tip: - No fitness center - No breakfast - No room service (must pay extra) - Some of the more expensiv...
