This is one of our favorite places to stay. Located just far enough out of town. Rooms are always clean and the whole property is very well maintained. Nothing better then sitting by the river reading a book or just taking nap. You can walk to town or walk about 50 yards to the shuttle stop. Staff is very friendly...

My husband, who is disabled, and I were going to use a friend's condo in Estes, but he was unable to access it. So...we had the dilemma of finding an accommodation in July during the Rooftop Rodeo! We, luckily, found Deer Crest resort. Ken and his wife have made this lovely riverside retreat a real pleasure. They went above and...

If you are looking for a fancy hotel with up to date furnishings, you will want to go somewhere else. On the other hand, if you are looking for a peaceful retreat where there aren't kids running all over the place and you can sit outside taking in the scenery and weather, this is the location for you! The rooms...

The location was great as it was away from the crowded part of town. The river/creek was wonderful to relax by in the late afternoons and mornings. We neglected to note when we made our reservation that there is NO air conditioning available. Since the creek/river was so loud at all times, it was hard to keep the window open...

Hello. Glad you enjoyed our location and the Beautiful Fall River. Over half of our rooms do have a/c, but it is normally cool in the evenings. Sorry that wasn't the case while you were here and that you found the river was too loud for you to sleep with the windows open. Most people like the sounds of the...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights over the 4th of July weekend. We needed a relaxing break from the trauma in our lives since October. Deer Crest really helped us achieve our goal. We had a river front king room which had the most comfortable bed. Room was kept very clean by the very nice housekeeping staff....

Deer Crest was the perfect location for the easiest access to RMNP and Estes Park. Our bed was very comfortable and the linens very nice. We would recommend Deer Crest to anyone making this adventurous trip. We have truly fallen in love with the Rockies.

Me and a buddy stayed here in June. Our room with queen beds was clean and well-stocked with a TV, coffeemaker, fridge -- nothing fancy, but everything you need for a stay. It was on the second floor facing the river and we could hear its roar from our room -- an excellent soundtrack to fall asleep to. The property...
