“When a Hotel is Just a Place to Sleep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

Well it's more than that but as a business (frequent) traveler who spends a lot of time in hotel rooms when my wife and I are looking for a place to stay at some holiday destination, the last thing we need or want are the so-called "extras" which cost a bundle and are never used. We spend the whole day out and return late in the evening so we're never going to use or be interested in the Five Star extras. We don't need the mint on the pillow, the turn down service, the valet, the lounge, the golf lessons, the wine steward and whatever else the top dollar hotels give you which may make you feel like a millionaire and cost as much.

The Saddle & Surrey met our requirements perfectly. Clean, comfortable bed, good working and clean shower and bathroom, comfortable AC unit and spacious room. To top it off, we rented the kitchenette and all appliances were clean and in perfect working order. We broke our fast in the room and prepared our "sack lunch" for our daily excursions into Rocky Mountain National Park and the full size frig. in the kitchen area served to keep our fixings fresh.

Good working wireless Internet access right in the room is a must for me as I wind down in the evening before bed. It worked perfectly. As did the large screen (flat screen modern) TV for my wife's benefit.

In the office they served coffee and a nice assortment of common "Continental Breakfast" fare though we were only able to take advantage of this one morning as otherwise we were out on our day well before the office opened. Our issue, not theirs. We're just early starters.

Price? We got far more than we paid for. Would we go back there again? Absolutely.

One last note. The location is a little distance from the centre of the city but just a couple of minutes drive on a main street. Consider this if you just have to be in the centre of activity. It probably won't be an issue since most things in Estes Park close about 9 PM.

Room Tip: We did not see the non-kitchenette rooms but I understand that they are smaller (naturally) so if sp...

After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to stay at the Saddle and Surrey the night before we had to take a late day flight out of Denver. What an excellent value! I agree with all of the comments about the sheets and towels. They were fabulous! The motel room was very clean and it was located in a quiet area. Would return again. Loved Estes Park, CO! What a picturesque town!

Seasoned travelers stayed 8 days while visiting Estes Park area. All aspects of the property exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a room with kitchenette which was a major plus.. September is wonderful Elk watching time in RMNP and Estes Park, like, right out your back door of the hotel. Caution: Bull Elk are aggressive during rut so keep your distance.. The beds were comfy, room spotless, big screen TV, WIFI was excellent, grills spotless, hot tub spotless, swimming pool spotless and I could go on and on. Oh, also went to a Broncos game (football) and Rockies game (baseball). Drove to Longmont, CO and got on RTD (bus) and they dropped us off at the door step of both stadiums. The exit (from games) back to Longmont park n' ride was a breeze. Highly recommend RTD to get you into and out of the city. The owners, Wes and Barbara are two of the nicest people I've ever met. When my wife checked in Barbara gave her two bottles of water and said, "drinks lots of water until you get adjusted to altitude". We hiked all over in RMNP. Had a blast and hated to leave but will return. Hey folks, look no further than this place if you want to feel like your at home.

Room Tip: We are fans of room 22 with the kitchenette and two queen beds.

The room was spotless and was thoroughly neatened up daily. We were upgraded to a larger room with a full kitchen-very thoughtful of the woman running the hotel. She was able to provide knowledge on the local restaurants that was valuable and was a great source on hikes/parks/etc. The bed was comfortable, the AC strong, bathroom spotless, huge flat screen TV and the wifi was strong. Could not ask for more and I would absolutely stay here again.
