“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Discovery Lodge was a great place to stay. It was with in walking distance of the main strip in Estes and the grocery store. There was a cute little pond right out our front door. The staff was very polite and our room was great. Thanks Discovery Lodge!

We came to Estes Park for a girls weekend and after much research chose Discovery Lodge, both my sister and my cousin said we made the perfect choice. 1st we were pleased that it was within walking distance to town, no one had to drive home if we wanted to have a few drinks. Rebecca at the front desk was most helpful with everything from ice to towels for the hot tub to restaurant recommendations and then discounts for some of the restaurants. Much appreciated!! The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of hiking, loved that our room was so close to it and the hot tub was outside. Everyone else that we met that were staying there were really nice and also seemed to be having a great time there. Our next door neighbor even came over to take pictures for us before we went out.

We got a fireplace room that was good for us because it seemed to be oversized and the price was well worth it. The bathroom was alittle small for 3 girls but we easily made it work. The beds seemed to be pretty new and were darn comfy. Were so glad to have a fridge and microwave. We didn't have much of a noise problem because our room was on the end. Thanks for such a wonderful stay. Can't wait to come back!!

Wow! Sounds like you had a very successful girls outing! :D I'm glad you all had a great time. I try to keep everyone updated with discounts, great restaurants and places and hikes to do around Estes. I was once new here too! :D
Next time you come visit us, let us know and we will get you a different room to compare, but still with a fireplace of course. We sell wood now here in the lobby too.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review. We really appreciate it! We look forward to seeing you again! Take care!

Two night stay, on the way from moving to WI from Albuquerque. Very friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location as it's within walking distance to gas stations, restaurants, shops, grocery, and even a movie theater. Great views and nice to have the hot tub outside rather than inside. Overall very pleased. Only negative is that I could hear the people next door, but that's nitpicking really since I could care less.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of the Rockies.

Loved the Pond View suite. Lots of windows so lots of natural light. Two rooms: one for kids with two large beds, which they loved and then one for mom and dad. Very comfortable bed, lovely setting, nice area to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Wonderful staff! I believe it was Rebecca that we worked with both days. She was so friendly and very patient with the kids. We had only two small complaints: the suite was a bit warm with only one window in each room that would actually open and the bathroom needed a little more attention as far as cleaning is concerned. Great value overall!

Room Tip: Pond View has been updated and is very comfortable with nice view of property. Very spacious, comfo...

Thanks for taking the time to write us such a nice review. Sounds like you got to stay in room 104. It's very popular! Good size, but cozy at the same time. Next time, we could maybe get you into room 201. Same 2 bedroom suite and fireplace, just different size beds. So glad to hear you all had such a great time. Next time you come, if its too warm again, we are more than happy to provide an extra box fan to help cool things down. We understand it can get warm in the summer and not all of our units have A/C. We normally do not need it. We like to take advantage of the natural cool breeze we get from the Rockies! :)
Thanks again very much and we look forward to seeing you all again. Take care!

We always stay at the Discovery Lodge when we go to Estes. I completely agree with the review left by Bob and Lynda P. It is a perfect place to stay with a pet and if we were traveling without our dog we would still stay there. The balcony rooms are just perfect. The slight noise problem is the only negative thing I can think of and it is truly no big deal. Give it a try, I think you will be pleased!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room!

Thanks so much for writing us such a nice review. We love dogs here! So happy to hear that you were able to enjoy your stay with your dog. It would be even cheaper for you next time if you didn't bring your dog, but then we wouldn't get to enjoy their company! :)
We look forward to seeing you all again. Thanks again for the review and staying with us. Take care!
