The property is really cute but construction and rock hard beds were a bummer.

  • 2 of 5

It was a bummer to not know the parking lot was under construction. It made coming and going really difficult in an already tight parking lot. The real problems though were the bed which was rock hard. Seriously, I ended up sleeping on the floor at one point. Also the shades which are cute did not provide much privacy which you really want when your room faces other windows and a parking lot. The staff was friendly and the game room was a nice touch but the bed and scratchy linen will keep us from going back.

Really enjoyed our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

This is a historic property. Keep that in mind when you choose to stay here. The hospitality is amazing! We were warmly greeted at the door upon arrival. Our room was clean and in good order. There was an outside door that overlooks the city and a bay window with a great view! The kitchenette was completely stocked with EVERYTHING you need for your stay. It even has laundry detergent to do a load of laundry while you are there! The pool is HEATED and it was forty degrees while we were there and we swam both evenings. The view from this property is perfect for a sunrise view of the mountains. In the evenings we sat by the fireplace in the lobby that had a perfect fire going all evening. We stored our own wine in the refrigerator and drank it up by the fire.

When we arrived the elk were in town and all around the property, it was wonderful to see!

As some people stated yes, the water does go a little warm sometimes when it's hot but it wasn't very bad and would not keep me from staying here. We did hear the above resturaunt but we sleep with a fan on and didn't hear noise late at night.

We really enjoyed our stay here and will probably stay here in the future! It is located very close to RMNP.

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

Being first greeted by a lovely lady at desk was wonderful . The historic place is beautiful. Bed was comfortable. Room a bit cramped but was perfect for our stay in Estes. Close to town but far enough to be very serene & peaceful. Tried to go back at the end of our trip but there were no vacancies. Definitely would return .

Very nice place to stay when visiting RMNP.

  • 4 of 5

The studio room is a nice size and very clean. It has a nice view. Be aware that it is located right below the restaurant so there is some noise until about 9pm each night. It didn't bother us, but could bother those who go to bed early. I'm not sure if they would be able to accommodate another room on busy weekends, but may be worth asking. The grounds (including pool), location, and lobby are great.

Nice amenities and friendly staff. Too much noise above 1st floor lodge. Bathroom had wet odor.

  • 3 of 5

I appreciated having the stove and utensils and the proximity to the Rockies. However, being in the 1st floor lodge room beneath the restaurant was not good for sleep as every step and slide could be heard until 10pm. Because the property is 'historic', water running thru the shower pipes or bathrooms were rather loud. We were up by 3am everyday due to odd sounds running thru the pipes. We were amused by how the shower went from very hot to frigid cold randomly while in use, but we understand this is expected with an older property. The bathroom had a wet smell that we think came from the shower curtain. If we stayed here in the future, we definitely will stay well away from the restaurant area due to noise. Thank you for making us feel welcome.

The room was clean enough, had all the right amenities, and the staff was friendly enough, but I was placed in a lower level room that had the dining room/kitchen above it, so there were multiple people moving tables and chairs around, and running water until approximately 11:30pm. I was in town for 2 running races, needing to be up by 4am, and did not get any restful sleep due to the noise. Will not stay here again.
