We stayed in a corner fireplace suite. The staff was very friendly and the rates (for off season) were excellent! The staff recommended a few places for us to eat and they were all good. It's centrally located and was very convenient to get anywhere we wanted to go. The wi-fi was also great, never had a problem. We will DEFINITELY stay here again!

Our stay at the Discovery Lodge was fantastic. We traveled there with our 2 large dogs and we were all welcomed! Rebecca and her dog Teddy were very gracious hosts at check in and even invited our dogs to come in and play with them. The room was very comfortable and had a very nice balcony with beautiful views. If you want to see elk then you see them every night right outside your room as they make there way to the pond on the property. There is also excellent free wi-fi available in the rooms. Over all we had a very nice and welcoming experience staying here and would definitely recommend it to anyone staying (especially with dogs!) in Estes Park.

Its very easy to see why this lodge gets great reviews. Throw in a super friendly and helpful service, a great location with views of snow clad rockies right from the bed, a spacious room with a balcony (highly recommend the King Bed rooms ), parking outside the door and prices as low as what you pay at a regular motel. Yes, the walls are a little thin and at nights you ought to be courteous and turn down the TV volume. But then thin walls are a problem I face at most places and its never stopped me from getting a good night's sleep.

Thank you for such a nice review! Glad you enjoyed your stay and our mountain views. You should try one of our other balcony rooms. We have one with a fireplace, closer to the out door hot tub. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks again and take care!
