The hotel was your run of the mill experience as far as the rooms go. Solid, and good bang for the buck. The facilities were swell as well. The pool and hot tub were clean and warm, even whilst it was snowing heavily outside. The staff was what really made the hotel such an incredible time. The day manager Raychel...

The best place in Estes Park, bar none. This resort is right on the Lake, with the most picturesque views possible. The staff was exceptional, the restaurant was great, front desk staff exceptional, we wouldn't change a thing.

The plan was to go hiking at Rocky Mtn National Park, but the weather did not cooperate. Decided to stay for 2 nights anyway. Small crowd at the bar in the evening with a more intimate feeling made for an enjoyable stay. Friendly and great staff offering great customer service. Beds are super comfortable, and the views are amazing.

Of all the places I've stayed in Estes Park, the Estes Park Resort has the best wifi. That's pretty big for me. It has very comfortable rooms, right on the lake. It's too far to walk to the shops on Elkhorn, so you have to use your car. But, it's right next to a great Chophouse, and has access to...

We stayed only two days but we loved it. A few things were not 100%, but staff is wonderful, like you've known them forever, and that makes all the difference. We looked out on the lake and saw elk come down in front of our room each night. Outstanding. Glad we stayed here!!

I just returned from my sons wedding in Estes Park. The plan was for the wedding to be in Rocky Mt National Park. But a big April snowstorm arrived for the weekend. Luckily they had an inside back up for the ceremony. But as a Mom, I was concerned about family photos. With my son living out of state, family...

Not only was this hotel perfectly located, next to a lake and close to town, the staff was incredible! From the moment we checked in, to the moment we left, everyone was helpful and friendly. Rob was especially wonderful, as he helped us out with getting our baby's carseat cleaned up, after she got sick. It was our oldest's birthday,...

This is a very well built, rustic mountain hotel. The interior is all you would expect to find in a mountain resort town such as Estes Park. The rooms are clean with up to date design and furnishings. Just below the lodge is a pathway which you can walk around the lake. The views from the patio of the lodge...

I chose this place to stay when a girlfriend from out of state came to visit. I wanted to have something with a beautiful view and this definitely fit the bill. There is a nice 1 mile walking path into town. The room was very comfortable. The only thing it was lacking was a kleenex box oddly enough and the...
