We booked 3 wks. in advance w/Expedia and called to speak with the manager( Loretta) to ask a few questions and decided we wanted to stay another day. After spending 5 nights only to find everything great from the lodge, the location to town(walking distance) and how close to RMNP(3mi) we asked if it was possible for one more night. We lucked out and got it. All the hotels are booked because of the ELK FEST.
The lodge has very nice, clean updated rooms. We actually had a condo(2nd floor) with a micro and small refrigerator. There are others with kitchens if you choose to cook. The bed was a king size and the mattress very comfortable w/good pillows too. It has a fireplace, a lazy boy chair to relax and watch football games on a flat screen tv. Not to mention very QUIET
The room is spacious and has a pull out couch, if needed. The bathroom has a vanity, a blow dryer, and a great shower/bath tub with HOT water. Coffee maker too.
As far as the continental breakfast....it is the same as other hotels and has everything from cereal to bagels and danish. The manager is Bruce and he is there every morning to greet you and answer any questions that you may have. He is very friendly and you can tell he likes being at Murphy's. His wife Loretta manages the office and makes you feel special and will go out of her way to help you. They both make you feel at home. Thanks to them they made our stay at Estes Park one we will always treasure.
P.S. They can tell you about all the good restaurants in town also. We can highly recommend The Wild Rose. Superb food and service. Excellent steaks and fish.
