Welcome to Discovery Lodge. We are within walking distance of downtown Estes Park Colorado. Although we are located near downtown, the views of the Rocky Mountains are clearly visible and some of the best. Here at the Discovery Lodge you are located just 10 minutes from the Rocky Mountain National Park.

We recently spent a weekend here. The location is good, not far from downtown. Staff was friendly and the room was clean. My only issue was the room wasn't very sound proof. We could hear the people in the next room talking loudly past midnight. We were also in a room next to

EXCELLENT stay. Booked this room at the last minute, and was pleasantly surprised. Ask for Linda! My friends and I are traveling from West Virginia and are visiting Rocky Mountain for break, and could not be happier with how we were treated at Discovery Lodge.

Fast and easy check in. Site with different buildings, free parking, good wifi. This is one of the cheaper hotels in Estes Park, near Rocky Mountain National Park. This means that the other hotels are too expensive. This hotel has spacious rooms, nice bathroom, good beds. Free co

The lodge is located 0.2 miles from the downtown restaurants and shops. A shopping center is across the street. The two eastern entrances to Rocky Mountain National Park are 4-5 miles away. I visited during the elk mating season and the motel grounds and the neighboring golf cour

hello, we have booked a stay there next December, all the reviews look great! I wanted to know, does it snow in the city around thanksgiving? is there snow in hidden valley at that time as well? I'm from Texas and the family is wanting to go at a time when there's snow everywhere! thanks!
Sorry I checked my tripadvisor account too late to reply on time. My friends in EP told me this year they had a couple of snow storms and a lot of sunny days. Should you desire some real snow don't forget that the surrounding mountains offer whatever you might need. And the lovely town of Boulder is just 1 hour drive away

Do the rooms have microwaves?
Some of our larger suites have microwaves but most of our standard rooms do not. Every room does have a fridge and there's a microwave in the lobby you may use. Leslie

Is there AC in the Otis House? If not, are there box fans provided?
There is no A/C and we can make sure there are box fans! Typically, we open all windows at night as the mountain air is very cool and refreshing and then close them in the AM. I'll make sure we have fans! Leslie

Does your hotel have air conditioning?
Hello, only two of our units have a/c, 202 and 203. The evenings in Estes park are nice and cool. If these are not available our sister property Coyote Mountain Lodge has a/c in all rooms! They're rates are similar to ours!

"Ask for a room away from the main road if you are a light sleeper."
"Room 307 Room is on the end up on top"
"Rooms facing the golf course are probably the quietest."
"We have always had a room close to the golf course, because we love to watch the elk."
