Had booked 7 nights at the Deercrest after seeing the reviews. We liked it so much we stayed an extra 5 nights and could not fault it. Had very good sized room overlooking the Fall river. It was very clean and comfortable. Ken and Carrie, the owners, could not have been more helpful and friendly. We would recommend it to anyone. We would sit by the river and watch the chipmonks and marmots at play, which was quite entertaining after a day out. It is only a mile away from the Rocky Mountain National park, which is fabulous, we spent 5-6 days there and well worth the 20 dollars (for 7 days) admission. Eating out is good. Would not recommend Nicky's steakbar (the nearest restuarant) which is over priced and our food was over cooked. Apart from that one, we had good meals. Restuarants - The Wild Rose restuarant in the town. Just a short mile or so away is the Big Horn restuarant which is very reasonably priced for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Tony Pizzas is good too. If you are planning to go to the National park, the Trailhead restuarant is good to and you can watch the humming birds whilst you eat. We saw many different types of wild life from wild turkeys, elk, deer, fox, beaver and many more. If Riding is your thing then go along to the National riding school just a mile from the Rocky mountain park entrance. We had a two hour ride, and they were great.
