My husband and I planned a extended weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park and spent the majority of our time snowshoeing. Coyote Mountain Lodge was the perfect "base camp" for our time in the area. I was impressed with the updated look of our room. If you're a picky person, then I'm sure you can find exceptionally high-brow hotels in...

Great little motel with all the fancy amenities at a low cost. I highly recommend using this property for your stay in Estes Park. It is near all the pertinent places that you need to see in Estes Park.

I am sure there may be many places that are very good in Estes Park, but this one stands out on top. Here are just few of the reasons: 1. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. 2. Rooms are very well furnished and absolutely fantastic. Some reviews suggest they look old... But that's the point. In place like Estes Park,...

Coyote Mtn. Lodge is easy to find and easy to like. The people at the desk are friendly and accommodating. The place is not luxurious, but it is comfortable, the rooms look like they've recently been remodeled, and everything is spotless. We had 2 queen size beds that were very comfortable, ditto the pillows! You'll get a good night's sleep...

The Coyote is a great value, and all would have been almost okay... The rooms are old, very old. You might call them a bit shabby. But that is not even so bad. I was there in early October, and it happened to be very cold already, and snowing for 2 days. My room had the door plus 2 large...

I think that the Coyote Mountain Lodge is ONE of, if not THE best hotel stay value in Estes Park! We have stayed at quite a few hotels there over 12 years in Colorado. Estes Park is only a few hours from home, so we visit our "second home town" as frequently as possible. We have enjoyed numerous Scottish Festivals...

Stayed just one night while in town for a wedding; the room was spotless, spacious, and extremely comfortable.

Great little place! Reasonably priced. Literally a 10 minute drive from Rocky Mountain National Park. Quirky little town. Home to the famous Stanley Hotel.
