We stayed for two nights on an extended hiking tour based out of estes park. Room was quiet and had a great shower, and we loved the bathrobes. Hotel is right on estes lake and the riverwalk pathway which took us into town in about a half hour - great walk with elk sightings! The hotel packed us bag lunches...

I have learned over the years that when traveling with my wife she has a couple of very simple expectations: a hotel should be clean and have a friendly staff. That is her minimum requirement. Then there are extra things that turn an average stay into a good or great one. The Estes Park Resort staff was very friendly. The...

First, let me say that this property was spotless. Our room was clean and the linens were high quality and freshly laundered. The resort workers were all nice, friendly and helpful. The problem was one of management. During a wedding rehearsal dinner (which I am sure our friends paid a large bill for) the bread was served 15 minutes after...

We stayed here our first night of Inn to Inn hiking. This hotel has unobstructed views of the Mountains and lake the grounds are tranquil and if your lucky like we were Elk will be grazing or walking about. The accommodations are very comfortable and welcoming. The resort faces a lake which has a 5 mile walking or running path...

Very clean and accomodating hotel. We dined in one evening and staff was short, but our waitress really did the best she could. This hotel is located near horseback riding and snow shoeing location we booked tours through. Overlooks the RMNP and a small lake. We had over 90 elk right outside our balcony one night in late April. Was...

The view here is breath taking!! Our room was a king bed on the 3rd floor. Not very fancy and a bit odd that the bathroom vanity is in the bedroom. This makes the room seem smaller. The location was great for enjoying Estes Park activities. The food in the restaurant is not very good, but the view from the...

Estes Park is an amazing little town in the middle of the Rockies at 7500 feet. This resort is right on Estes Park Lake that has a breathtaking view of snow capped mountains in the Rocky Mountain National Park, which is only 15 minutes away. Estes Park Lake has a 3 mile path around it perfect for running, biking, walking....

Rooms are nice and large. I have no complaint other than the wifi would not work in my room. My room was at the far end of the hall and the signal was very weak. I did not perform a survey, but it appears that they have all of the access points near the lobby of the hotel. The signal...

I recently went up to Estes Park and stayed at this resort and it was by far one of the best experiences.
