Initially put me in a room next door to room construction on a late Saturday afternoon. Paper thin walls, could clearly hear every conversations in adjacent rooms, much less circular saws and hammering. Room had NO hot water. They did relocate to a new room when notified. Walls are so thin they include ear plugs in the bathroom.

Nice, comfortabke lodge close to estes park retail center and Rocky Mountain National Park. Rooms on the river are being uodated. Pool and hot tub indoors are perfect. Breakfast was imoroved to include hot items: scrambled eggs and potatoes. Other breakfast choices are plenty to hold you through to lunch. New managers Matt and Jenna are great people, pleasant, and upgraded us, as they had availability, to our favorite room (it had not been available when i tried to make reservations months earlier). Great place to stay fie the Estes Park Halloween festivities.

Very worn property. Needs upgraded.

Pros: The location.
Cons: The rooms are extremely worn.
Location: So much to do in the area. Rocky Mountain National Park, and lots of mountain activities.
This property was very clean, but extremely worn. It needs upgraded. The staff was friendly, and great location.

Thank you for your review! I wish I knew what room you stayed in during your stay and I would go have our maintenance inspect the room.

Cozy and beautiful!

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for one night to get away from the city. It was wonderful! The hot tub was great and the continental breakfast was just right! There was plenty to choose from. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and they even took our picture on the big chair, printed it, and gave us a frame to put it in (complimentary). We chose a king condo room on the river. It was so cozy and a great place to stay for a family. I'm sure it's even more beautiful in the summer. We would definitely stay here again!

Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed our Lodge. Our king river condos are very popular. The indoor heated pool and hot tub is a perfect place to relax on a winter night. We are glad you took advantage of our complimentary continental breakfast, it is a great way to start the day! We hope that you return and stay with us again on your next visit to Estes Park.
