This place is clean but in desperate need of updating. We stayed in a "suite" which had a kitchenette and a gas fireplace. The room is so outdated it's uncomfortable. The fixtures are leftovers from the late 60's or early 70's. The gas fireplace smelled so bad (like improperly vented) that you couldn't use it. The bed had the ugliest, oldest bedspread,a really cheap blanket,and only two lumpy pillows. No nightstand on one side so had to put water bottle, phone, etc on floor. There's a very small flat screen TV and slow Wi-Fi. If you don't clean up your own dishes apparently you're charged an extra "service fee". Isn't that why you pay for a suite? I can't help but think of the TV show "Hotel Impossible" and how the host would have a field day with this place!
My husband chose this property as we attended a family wedding and some people were on a budget. I work in the travel industry and always stay in 3 star plus lodging. I can't help but think there must be much better lodging for the same price or even less here in Estes Park. The surroundings here are so beautiful but there's no view at this motel, nothing special, no amenities, no extra pillows, no hair dryers, no hair conditioner,no ironing boards. The room even smelled funky. All I could think of is, why dont hotel owners put a little money into fixing a place up, and provide basic amenities? Don't they want their guests to be comfortable? I say don't bother staying here. This place needs a serious makeover!
