I bought a Groupon for this hotel and got a room with an amazingly beautiful view of the mountains, and overlooking a lake where there were several elk hanging around - it was wonderful! The rooms are a little odd - the bathroom only has a shower and toilet - the sink area is in the room next to the bed. I've not seen this before, so it seemed odd to me, but it really wasn't a big deal. Other than that I can only say good things about our time there - even though they were doing some remodeling, because even the men doing the work were super nice to us. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant one night and it was great, as was the service - although when we asked to charge our bill to our room, they didn't seem to be able to handle that, so we just paid it. It seems they need to get up to speed on a few things. The reason I am giving 4 stars stars is that it is old and needs some updating - hopefully the remodeling they are doing will take care of that. The location could not be more perfect - amazing views of the mountains, right on a lake, just a short drive to the cute little downtown area, and to Rocky Mountain National Park. There is a movie theater just up the street, as well as a few cafes, and a Safeway grocery store. I would definitely recommend this property, but I think the amount I paid with the Groupon (about half price) is all I'd be willing to pay to stay there - maybe after they update it I'll feel differently.

Room Tip: As for a room that faces west - toward the mountains and overlooking the lake. It is a spectacular...

I went to this resort on a singles treat with some of my friends. From the time I walked through the door until i left, every individual from the staff to other guests were courteous. The rooms were spacious and provided many amenities, not to mention the cleanliness from the ceiling to the floor. The food was great, very well prepared. I nor any of the 30 plus people from my group had any complaints about the resort other than having to leave. It was very scenic, well placed and a great visit. I do look forward to coming back in the future and once again partaking in yet another amazing stay at The Estes Park Resort.

After researching the area, I chose the Estes Park Resort for it's location and amenities. I was not disappointed! I booked a fantastic suite w/ 2 fireplaces, a jacuzzi, and 2 decks overlooking a lake. The snow capped Rocky Mountains were just beyond the town. Breathtaking! I traveled there for 4 days before going to a conference in Denver. The staff at the Resort was so friendly. The ambience in the dining room at the Resort was warm and welcoming thanks to the ladies who waited on me. They were so helpful in suggesting places to see in the Rocky Mountains and in Estes Park! The huge windows in the dining room provided a great view of the lake and the mountains. I spoke w/ Chef Alan about his menu of gourmet creations, which was wonderful. Try the salmon w/ the crispy, fried spinach.
Early one morning, there were 5 elk on the shore of the lake right outside my deck! Visit the Stanley Hotel and take the "Ghost Tour". It was full of surprises. And, DO NOT MISS The Riverspointe SPA!! I had at least 4 spa treatments while I was in Estes Park, & why not? The staff were, again, very friendly and helpful. I was so relaxed, ready for my conference! Note that the Spa is tucked away on the river, just behind the main street of the town. Easy to find. The town is full of shops and restaurants, and worthy of several visits. Stop by the Visitor's Center on Elkhorn Ave. for more information.
P.S.- The Resort has a pool and a hot tub, which I didn't have a chance to check out. There are also facilities to do your laundry.
I will be returning to the Estes Park Resort!

Room Tip: I had a corner suite on the top floor. I would pick a room on that floor again. I think it's br...

My husband & I had our wedding dinner in the Mezzanine last summer and could not have asked for more. Some of our guests stayed here and had a great experience. We did a buffet- the food was excellent. Great bar tender. We got to bring in our cake from a local Estes Park bakery. GREAT value for us!

Wow, my wife and I stopped in for lunch yesterday and had a huge surprise - the staff was amazingly polite and helpful, and then the food came, and it was wonderful. We sat there for a couple of hours, reading our books, having a cocktail, and interacting with staff.

Chef Alan came out and we chatted for a while. We were so impressed with him, as well as the rest of the staff, that we came back today for the Sunday brunch. Once again, excellent! Poncho cooked a couple of amazing omelettes, the prime rib was perfectly done, and everything else was so good, we ate everything we took!

At one point, the table next to us was telling the server how wonderful the sheets and blankets in the room were, and asking where they might be able to find at least the brand to purchase some to bring home. Next thing we know, the Housekeeping Manager was coming down to talk to the couple and answer their questions, on a Sunday!!

We enjoyed ourselves so much there that the next time we are in Estes, we plan to stay at the Estes Park Resort. Alan and the rest of the staff left such a great impression on us, I don't think it can be beat!!

I stayed there for a weekend getaway with my sister. I had purchased a Groupon which covered a two-night stay with a food voucher. For the price we paid I think it was a great value. We had a lake-view room. It seemed as though the hotel had been partially remodeled - the bathroom fixtures were pretty contemporary but the carpet throughout the hotel could have used an upgrade. Our room had two queen-sized beds which were comfortable and the room was clean. We had a patio that overlooked a small lake.

We actually saw about 20 elk that had migrated over to the lake on Saturday night. They were on the one end of the lake but slowly moved over across the lake and were eventually right in front of our room - so the elk were about 5-6 feet from where I was standing on the patio watching. It was very cool and they didn't seem too bothered by the people watching them.

On Friday night the bar had live music. When we went down to the bar there were quite a few people there enjoying the music and some drinks. We sat down and ordered an appetizer and some drinks. The bar service was good and the atmosphere was laid-back relaxing. On Saturday there was no live music, so it was much less crowded.

Overall we had a great experience at the hotel especially for the deal we got. We enjoyed our experience at The Estes Park Resort.
