Our stay was only 2 days, but wished it had been 2 weeks. We really enjoyed the room, office people and the whole experience. We have stayed in Estes Park almost every winter for a getaway weekend. The lodge we had stayed in didn't allow pets, but this is what made our stay more enjoyable. You can't go wrong with a stay here. We recommend it when in Estes Park.

Room Tip: Our room had a south facing window which is a must in the winter time here in Colorado.

I agree with you the Continental Divide is almost more beautiful in the winter, and the views from the big bay windows are breathtaking.

The discovery lodge is amazing! Great prices and the rooms are really nice! The staff is BEYOND nice! They were very helpful and I definitely felt welcomed. Plus, they have a cute little dog named Teddy, which is always fun to play with. Its very family friendly (books, games, and other family friendly activities are in the lobby that you can check out to take to your room). I would definitely recommend this lodge if you are visiting estes park! Im definitely going back!

Having three kids makes finding accomodations challenging, and we were SUPER impressed with Discovery Lodge's room options. The rooms are updated, clean and well equipped. They truly are one of the best values in Estes Park, and the location is perfect for in town shopping and admission to the National Park. The management goes above and beyond to meet personal needs. Having a child with chronic illness makes planning vacations challenging at times, but Discovery Lodge has been very accomodating with the provision of refrigerators for medications. We are looking forward to renting part of the Otis House to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday in May, and know we will choose Discovery Lodge for many of our future getaways.

Room Tip: Requesting a suite, duplex or cabin provides the best value for $

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review. We do understand that all families are different and have different needs. I am so happy to hear that we were able to meet all of your needs, as well as your child. I also hope that your stay over the summer went just as swell. We look forward to seeing you all again.

I came up to Estes with my kids and was really surprised by the great rate at the Discovery. I think we only paid $49 which was a lot less than the other motels in the area. There was a playground, a fishing pond and lost of grass to run around on. The motel was also really close to town and Safeway which was great since we had a microwave and fridge in the room for snacks. Our room was really cute with new log furniture, it seemed like the whole room was new. We'll definitely come back. The staff was also really friendly, they got out games for the kids to play with in the lobby.

Thank you - we have been working at achieving this. We also have a luxury log cabin and our Otis vacation home that we keep competitively priced. Our winter rates end May 14th, but are summer rates are competitively priced also.

This is my second time staying at DL and I'm hooked. The rooms are clean, and there is great ambiance. I stayed in room 301, with the fireplace, and it definitely made the weekend for my gf's birthday. We will definitely be back!
