Only a few hotels in Estes Park Co are pet friendly, we booked it for this reason. Hotel is clean and comfy but the room has no chairs to set in we had to the local Ace Hardware store, and buy fold up lawn chairs which came in handy for watching the fire works on the 4th, we did not...

We stayed 2 nights over the 4th of July weekend. Price was a little high for the quality of room we received. Not modernized at all, but we only needed a room to sleep. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. We were in the last room on the back of the grounds. Had a small refrigerator and microwave.

Thank you for the review. It sounds like you stayed in one of our retro rooms. We do remodel rooms during the winter and we are working our way down the row of rooms you stayed in. We hope that on your next visit you will stay with us in one of the newly remodeled rooms.

The new hvac systems are amazingly quiet but powerful. Even the pull-out sofa has a memory foam mattress and is brand new to boot. Dual HD tvs with all the channels included. Everything is clean. The mini-fridge and microwave is a nice touch too. Couldn't ask for more!

Perfect location to enjoy Estes Park and surrounding areas. This small "retro" motel was very clean, comfortable and quiet. We stayed in a double queen standard room and were very pleased. Carpet and linens were like new and the beds surrendered a great night's rest. Value was excellent in the small town of Estes Park with limited accommodations for the...

i like this place. style is right out of the 50s in the best possible way, but the rooms have been remodeled and have nice sheets, etc. HOWEVER, the hot tub is currently 'broken' and the heated pool is barely warmer than you'd guess from just being outside in CO in the summer. put simply: its not acceptable for a...

Thank you for your review. I will have the maintenance look into changing the AC in this room. Yes there was a day in question about the hot tub, however their is maintenance steps that must be performed on daily basis and that included draining the hot tub to put fresh clean water in it.

I can't speak for all the rooms, but 132 exceeded my expectations. Very clean, nice bedding and a fabulous mountain view. What more can you want, especially considering the price.

We were in a small room that had not been renovated. Door locked, but had large enough gap when closed that a mouse could have easily entered. Room was clean but noisy barking dogs in the room above us were a bother. Wifi worked. No breakfast service. Location is right outside of town and close to entrances to RMNP. Safeway...

I did book last minute and was happy to find a place to stay in Estes in the middle of July and for a little over $100 a night when everywhere else was $250+ I did get one of the last rooms they had out of many and from the looks of the room it doesn't get rented very often....
