Stayed at the Discovery Lodge with our family at the end of July this year and had a fantastic time. The corner room we had was larger than normal rooms which made for a great time with extra space. While staying there, you are walking distance away from downtown Estes Park, Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church, the bus station and Safeway grocery store. After hiking mountains in the morning most days, it was nice to come back to our room and the grounds. There is a nice playground/swing set for kids, horseshoe game which my family really enjoyed, and a nice path around the lodges. For golfers out there, you are right near the course and can see it from your window. Spectacular views of the Front Range. Only downside was that the WiFi was spotty so we had to use the main computer at the Lodge Office for printing off plane tickets, etc. Had a wonderful time here and we will definitely be returning upon our next visit to the beautiful mountains.

Room Tip: Corner rooms (506) is larger than normal. Makes it great for family of 4.

Estes park lodging can be very expensive. While I would never expect to pay this much for a comparable hotel in a different location, this is a good value for the area. The rooms are clean. Note, there is no air conditioning, but they provide a fan. Good location, can walk to several places, and very close to RMP entrance.

The hotel is conveniently located, although you do need to drive if going into town to shop or eat. It is an easy walk to the visitor center if you want to take a shuttle to the park. The room was large, with a view of the mountains. The lack of air conditioning is not a problem since it cools off at night, and they supply a fan if you need it. The place does have a "lodge" feel, with a playground, fishing pond, and horseshoe pit on the center grounds. There were many families staying there. Our only problem was that the bathroom door was difficult to close completely.

This lodge is a little pricey for what you get, Room was not ready upon arrival at 1pm, we had to wait until after 3pm to check into our room. Room has no air condition at all but they do provide floor fans in every room. I probably will not stay here again as it is to pricey for what you get.

I stayed here with my three children and we really enjoyed our stay. When we first checked in we were concerned about a smell in our room and they changed our room without asking any questions. We were very comfortable with our new room! The beds were comfortable and the kids loved fishing in the pond (being your own pole). Our last night there we saw a herd of elk grazing on the lawn and the kids sat on the play structure and had a great view of the majestic creatures. The staff were all very nice. We'd come back in an instance.
