This was a very convenient location for spending time in Estes Park. Easy access to the town and nearby attractions.

We were there in the spring for snowshoeing and it worked out great. The room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of parking. We didn't really try any amenities but the staff was nice.

Would stay there again in the future.

They advertise great views, not so much of these either. Better personally and in advance chose your room or you'll be looking at a bush. Or parked cars. Surly desk clerk says they NEVER change rooms. You can do much better. If it's a few dollars more to go somewhere else, pay it. Lots of lovely choices in Estes Park.

(They never clean up the dog stuff in the kids playground either...ick.)

Room Tip: higher rooms facing their yard offers a better chance for a view

Great location but would not stay there again. We stayed in what they call a suite since they did not have any rooms available. We were in the downstairs cabin and room upstairs was occupied with someone that could not sleep but heard walking almost all night. The porch light also went off and not sure why and could not see outside. We were awaken by what sounded like mice between the walls. Did not sleep at all and was pricey to stay but left at 6am the next morning and were completely exhausted from lack of sleep.

We stayed here on our first night in Estes Park. Great for families with small children. Nice swing set, fed the ducks i. the pond, had a campfire, watched the elk that were hanging out at the gold course, amd mou tain hot tubbing can't be beat! Worked for us just great!

Let me start with the pros:
* walking distance to the beautiful estes center (especially the route along the river)
* price is okay
* large room
* great view on the back

But now the cons:
* We had room 101 on the ground floor with zero wifi (be aware when booking)
* Tiny claustrofobic bathroom which was creepy
* No breakfast
* No airco
* You could hear people walking in the lobby above (noisy)

Next time I'll pay a few bucks more for another motel.
