The resort is beautiful on the outside, kinda old inside. It needs to be remodeled. The room we stayed in had terrible wi-fi and because the room was on the lower floor we had spiders! so be prepared for uninvited guests.

We went for a family event and had small children with us. The staff was courteous however, made a few comments on making sure our toddlers understood the walls were thin. There was also not any food or drink available for children. The location was lovely and the staff was helpful, I would recommend this hotel for adults but not...

We booked a stay at the Estes Park Resort for our overnight trip to Estes. We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival. We were notified of resort activities, as the resort offers new ones each day. We had smores by the lake and chair massages! We went to our room and it was perfect, except it was very hot. We didn't...

We stayed one night at the resort on the second floor. The room was nice, comfortable and clean with a view of the lake and mountains. The lake was actually very small. The dining room and bar area were very nice, with the same views as in our room. The food was very good, especially my husband's breakfast! He had...

Never been to Estes before , was pleasantly surprised by the quaint attributes of the area and town. This hotel was a few miles outside the town, nice enough for a peaceful relaxing weekend, had great breakfast menu. Probably gets booked up in summer months since it sits next to lake docking area where you can rent boats or enjoy...

It is not a "value" hotel (we did not get a good price I guess?). And that is the only point I wanted to complain. The resort is located right beside a lakeside park. Mountains reflected in the lake, kayaks and ducks playing together, this is a resort that you will remember. The resort reminded me of those national park...

I visited this resort in early August with three girlfriends. We were very comfortable and the service was good. Outside they had fire pits and Adirondack chairs, perfect for relaxing, with the lake steps away. The public rooms gave a rustic feel but everything was very modern as well. There were several weddings there during our six day stay, which...
