Exactly what we were looking for. A quiet, reasonably priced motel right on the roaring Fall River. The grounds were immaculate and, though the motel is a bit aged, it was just right for us. We particularly liked the upper level with stools and a high table on the deck overlooking the Fall River.

Deer Crest is a wonderful, mom-and-pop owned and operated lodge with Fall River singing merrily at the back of the lawn. The room was fine for for the two of us, the kitchenette was great for breakfasts and had a good-sized refrigerator. There is wireless high speed internet access from the rooms, although you may have trouble with a cell phone, depending on your provider.

The owners were warm and welcoming and very attentive to whatever we asked of them. They've got a nice little library of videotapes and DVDs that you borrow on the honor system, and each room has, in addition to cable and HBO (or maybe Showtime?), a video and DVD player.

There's a comfy couch and chair, too, in addition to a comfortable bed. Each room has a little sitting area in front, and guests were friendly.

This is very near RMNP Fall River entrance and within walking distance to Nicky's, a popular restaurant. It is quiet -- very little traffic since the main lodging area is on the other side of town.

We'll go back and definitely will stay here.

I stayed there for three nights. Room 107 was perfect for someone who loves the sound of water. The room and grounds were spotless. We felt like we were visiting old friends. The stream (Fall River) produced six (released) awesome trout for my flies, including two well over 16 inches before supper first night. There's grilles ready to use. I told the owner I wished for a bigger coffee maker, and he had one at my room in minutes. The location was perfect, and we had no complaints whatsoever. I ran into friends from my hometown who spent 9 nights elsewhere there, paid more, and had lousy service and experience. Heck, the ground squirrels were even eating out of my hands. Did I mention the fishing there? I was really impressed with the owners and property alltogether. And I don't impress easily. This place shouldn't disappoint you. It's a no-brainer for me and my friends going out there in the future.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay in July. The balcony overlooking the bubbling mountain stream was especially nice. The rooms were spacious and clean and there were good restaurants within walking distance. I'd go back.

Great location on Fall Creek Entrance to RMNP and close to downtown Estes Park. The rooms were comfortable and well furnished. Had a microwave, fridge, and coffeemake with a private balcony overlooking the river rolling over rocks like a waterfall. There was a pool and hot tub, places to sit along the river, picnic tables and grills. This is for adults only (18 and over).

Stayed for 3 nights at the Deer Crest in late June 2005, 3 adults. The room was very clean, two queen beds, microwave and fridge. The patio with table and chairs were nice to sit and listen to the river.

New management in April, but all hotels, cabins campgrounds in Estes Park have strict reservation and cancelation policies. Be sure to read them carefully.

Price was good since you do get clean room, quiet accomodations. There are no facilities for children and it is nice to have that option when traveling with adults. The Rocky Mountain National Park is just a few minutes down the road and you do not have to go through town to get there. Town is just few minutes the other way.

There seems to be lots of older places in Estes Park, but this will not disappoint. It is not a luxury condo, but good hotel accomodations for enjoying the Park. Will post photos soon. Would stay there again!

Wow! I was certainly surprised to read the previous review. We would never consider staying anywhere else BUT the Deer Crest Lodge. We found the rooms clean and comfortable. The price was exceptional for the beautiful rooms, most including a kitchenette and fireplace. The pool was kept spotless. The Fall River running through it was a major plus. You are only 5 minutes away from the Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park entrance. We liked the Adult Only policy. This facility is under new management since April, 2005 but we heard only good things about this place even before that. This will be an annual trip for us.
