Positive Reviews

Great location

Offering many amenities like fishing at Lake Estes this lodge is great for anybody who likes to explore the outdoors. Estes Park is in the Rocky Mountains National Park and many short trips to attractions within the park are not a problem from this location. Many guests liked the peace and quiet while still being able to enjoy some shopping and restaurant visits.

Accommodations are good

Rooms with a view get especially good reviews, as waking up to the sight of the Rocky Mountains is a special treat. Clean and comfortable, most guests liked the rooms they booked.

Staff is friendly

Many guests felt very welcome by the staff. As a family owned establishment the family takes pride in their business, and do their best to make your stay great. As locals they also can give you recommendations for attractions and booking tours or where to eat.

Negative Reviews

No air conditioning

Some guests did not like the lack of air conditioning. There is however a fan provided and in the evenings it cools down, making it possible to cool your room by opening the window.

Sliding glass doors

Some rooms seem to have sliding glass doors as the main entry door, which made some guests a bit nervous. Estes Park is not a place known for a lot of criminal activity but if you prefer a solid door you might want to defer from the motel rooms.

Windows lacking

The motel rooms also had sometimes very little window space, making it for some guests uncomfortable. You might want to book a room with a view if you would like to enjoy the surroundings of the hotel.
