We had such a good stay at The Estes Park Resort as part of a one night getaway from Denver. The hotel is in a breathtaking setting with amazing views, and even though it was frigid outside there was plenty to do indoors. We sat by the fire and had dinner and drinks and then took advantage of the indoor...

The Estes Park Resort, sitting on the shores of Lake Estes, is a classic Colorado full service lodge, and our choice this year for our family's brief getaway. We enjoyed one of their 3rd floor 2-room suites with fireplace and balcony overlooking the lake. The New Year celebrations had ended and the hotel was quiet. Staff was so attentive and...

Beautiful views, spacious rooms and convenient location. Liked being on the main drag, having the mountain shop next door, and the lake trail right outside. Good pool, gym and game room setup. Good food, especially the burgers. Downside was we could not get the room below 70 and the room was incredibly dry. We had to crack a window in...

We've stayed at many places in and around Estes, but this was a pleasant surprise -- and rewarding all around. Great location (get the lake view) and the food is EXCELLENT! While we normally do B & B or VRBO, this was a great "commercial deviation" from our normal, personal accommodations. Be sure to make time in the morning or...

Despite the age, lots of dark wood, Estes Park Resort was very modern with a remodel about 5 yrs ago, but a little awkward. The sinks are not in the bathroom, but in the big room and function more like a bar/kitchenette. Our room was clean, a very comfortable mattress and a great view overlooking the lake and mountains. Elevators...

I chose Estes Park Resort for its location/access to Lake Estes and gateway into Rocky Mountain Park. I loved being able to walk out of the resort and right onto the trail around the lake. It was cool to see elk roaming during my morning walk. I was a little disappointed with what we got for the price we paid....
