“One night stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

We stayed one night at Silver Moon on our way through Estes Park. The staff was wonderful and very helpful, but I probably wouldn't stay again. The room decorations and feel were old and worn. I asked for the top floor so I wouldn't hear footsteps above us and I'm glad I did as we could hear the people in the next room talking. The "river" everyone is talking about is a small creek in the front of the hotel. I was hoping for a real river view out a balcony but the hotel abuts a bluff and there are no balconies or windows out the rear of the room. There are virtually no mountain views at this hotel. We went to the hot tub area and both looked cloudy and unkept but we used the cleaner of the two. The common areas outside also looked to be unkept. We appreciated the free wireless and breakfast but the breakfast was just cold pre-packaged rolls and coffee.

Great location (right by a babbling brook)! A++ = room, fire place (wood available upon request)... Hot tubs (location not that great tons of ambiant light can't see the night sky). Walls and ceiling thin... (Get a room on 3rd floor or you will hear peoples foot steps) refrigerator freezes everything (check settings) windows actually open so you can control some cooling in the room. All and all outstanding experience!!!!

Without sounding like I'm gushing....Silver Moon Inn is fantastic! We spent a week here in a second floor room, every night listening to the Fall River rushing right outside our door. The staff was courteous, the hot tub felt great...especially after hiking and dodging the rutting elk everyday in Rocky Mountain National Park and the location was perfect! While dining within downtown Estes Park we found to be spotty, it was still nice to know we could walk to dinner if we chose to. As I mentioned, the staff was very helpful, especially when, on the day we were leaving, we woke up to almost an inch of snow on our car and needed a scraper, which they readily lent. So the bottom line: the room was clean, the bed comfy, plenty of room to store clothes (as many hotels are now doing away with dressers..what's up with that?), courteous staff, well maintained hot-tub, reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were glad we were on the second floor when we chose to sit on the porch. The first floor rooms w...

This was a (very) last-minute add-on toward the end of our March/April 2010 spring break Route 66 road trip from Chicago to Santa Fe and back. … We didn’t know we were staying at Silver Moon until we were more than halfway to Estes Park. There weren’t a lot of choices because it was still decidedly off-season. We were scared away from the RMNP-area national chains because of some pretty horrifying reviews. Thank goodness for wireless and smartphones. Thank goodness Silver Moon in was open and available. …

Not only was Silver Moon available, they were OK with our late check-in. They hid a key for us and actually let us check in the next morning (as we were checking out!). Clean and surprisingly large room. Beds were more than enough for me, wife, and 9-year-old twins. Powdered donuts and juice in the small main office were good enough as we were thrilled to wake up in the Colorado air for a quick off-season visit to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Room Tip: Not a lot of choices in March and April. Silver Moon in was there for us at the last minute.

Nicely kept ground floor room with switch on fire place and leather couch and a front porch and a picture window overlooking a stream with elk wander just across the stream. 7 elk were takin it easy in the green space next to the hotel. Very near entrance to Natl. Park. Grills are available. Good place for breakfast just a short walk down the stream.
Pretty setting and the owners and help are very nice and helpful. Several hot items available for breakfast. Would certainly look forward to saying here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are somewhat different. Check out web site and select room. Fire places are gas switch o...
