Wonderful location
Reviewed 3 days ago

Stayed at this lovely resort overnight for a quick getaway. We chose to pay a little more for a room with a view and it was definitely worth it. The bathroom setup was a little awkward with the sink outside of the restroom but it was nice not to have to share that space while we were all getting ready for the day. Lots of construction at the front of the resort but it was not disruptive at all.

Great

Very nice hotel, super clean, great rooms. We had supper in bar, very good. My husband had bleu burger and thought it was great. Great view of lake with dinning on deck. Nice quiet area. There was construction in parking lot but offered free appetizer for the inconvenience. Highly recommend.

Fair to Average Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

For being a "resort" hotel, this was a fairly standard low-end/outdated hotel - chipped/scraped paint on walls, carpet stains, ripped up accent pillows on the bed, thin walls, dirty towel hanging on the back of the bathroom door, hot tub was broken, etc. We found a great deal on this hotel, so we weren't upset with the amount we spent on it, but if we had paid full price, we would have been thoroughly disappointed. With this hotel, you are paying for location. It does have a gorgeous deck that looks out over Lake Estes; a playground for kiddos, a decent, albeit expensive restaurant (not a kid friendly priced restaurant, in my opinion); it's in a nice central location right as you get to Estes from the Big Thompson Canyon which allows close proximity to many different venues in Estes. If you can find a great price, go for it. Otherwise, don't spend full price on this hotel, there are nicer hotels in Estes for the same full price.

Clean, comfortable hotel on beautiful lake
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. It is clean and comfortable, and the property is nicely situated on Lake Estes. 95% of the time, when we travel, we are only using a hotel for a place to sleep at night and take a shower. So only 2 things are really important to us: cleanliness and a comfortable bed. This hotel checks both of those boxes. It is clean and has good, comfortable mattresses. The A/C unit is old, and the room felt a little stuffy. We turned it to fan only, which ran it all night, but at least circulated the air and made it more comfortable. There is a bar and restaurant in the hotel that has a nice large balcony overlooking the lake and is a nice location to sit and enjoy the scenery while enjoying a drink and/or food. The food is average, but the view makes up for it. This hotel is located just outside of downtown Estes Park, which is nice to be out of the congestion of foot traffic and crowds, but is not walking distance to the downtown area shops and restaurants. This hotel is along the lines of a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express. Perfectly fine and comfortable, but nothing particularly exceptional about it. If it were in "Anytown USA", I would expect to pay around $180ish/night. But it is in Estes Park, which is a tourist town, and if you stay here during prime tourist season, expect to pay up to double that price for one night (especially if you want a lake view room). Hotels in Estes Park are expensive in the summer and fall as it is located just outside of Rocky Mountain National Park, one of the most visited parks in the country. And fall brings the tourist attractions of aspen leaves changing and elk rutting. If you find a cheap hotel, be warned, there's probably a reason. Even though we pay tourist prices, we will definitely stay here again.

Disappointed for many reasons
Reviewed 1 month ago

Our room had a lovely lake and mountain view. The lounge opens to the lake and is a delightful place to enjoy a beverage. However, I am disappointed on many counts: 1. A/C is important in my choice of hotel and the website as well as 2 telephone calls assured me the room would have A/C. It did but the hotel TURNS OFF the A/C in the middle of the night if outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees - creating a stuffy room and poor sleep experience. Opening the sliding door is not an option as the decks with each room are connected to each other and an open slider destroys personal safety. I visited with a desk clerk about this situation and was promised a call from the manager. No call received! 2. In addition, the furniture was soiled and the carpet dirty. 3. Walls are thin and TV from next room is easily heard. Will not stay at this property again.
