The Best Western Plus Silver Saddle Inn garners appreciation for its excellent service and pristine cleanliness, both in rooms and public areas. Guests enjoy the range of amenities offered, including the diverse breakfast selection and scenic views from spacious, comfortable rooms. While the atmosphere is generally found to be inviting and contemporary, some visitors suggest a need for better lighting and updated decor. Though the hotel's location is celebrated for its convenience to local attractions, the value proposition has been met with mixed reviews due to seasonal pricing fluctuations and some additional charges.

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door the day we arrived - the room was huge! Everything was spotless as well, and the water pressure was fantastic. There is a separate sitting area, a desk, large TV, two tables for bags/suitcases, a closet, a minibar type area with sink/fridge + freezer, microwave, Keurig, and cabinets. My 6yo twins and I enjoyed the hot tub and pool each night. And breakfast? Holy cow- the room was huge with plenty of seating, and there was an assortment of hot foods, including pancake and waffle makers, and cereals/oatmeal.
It is located just minutes from downtown, and there are several restaurants nearby, so location couldn’t have been better.
This hotel is one of the best in which I have ever stayed!

Pros: Fantastic room! There were 2 kings beds which were very comfortable. The room was very spacious, extremely clean, had a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker, and a beautiful view of the mountains. The entrance to our room was from the outside which made loading and unloading our car very easy. Breakfast was delicious with eggs, sausage, hash browns, waffles, yogurt, oatmeal, fruit and a few other options. The hotel was close to downtown which had many restaurants and shops and close to the RMNP entrance.

Cons: Staff really needs to be friendlier. I wouldn’t say anyone was particularly rude, but I did not feel welcomed at all. No smiles and just gave us the information we needed and we were on our way. The guy who was serving the hot food at breakfast did not smile or offer a “good morning” but just asked what I wanted to eat. Also be aware that the front desk is only open 7am to 7pm. Fortunately we didn’t have any issues that needed attention but I have never seen a hotel that had their front desk open for that short amount of time. We had to check out before 7am so we’re not able to get any breakfast to take with us. For as much as we paid for the room we should have been able to at least have a muffin or something to take along. I also didn’t like that my credit card was charged when I booked the room, several weeks before we even arrived. I did not realize when booking that this was going to happen. The website said there was still a free cancellation policy but I didn’t understand why the entire stay was charged before we even arrived.

This motel is undergoing extensive renovations. The construction people and staff were very accommodating. It didn’t impact our stay at all. The promised breakfast was a sack with an orange or apple, a granola bar, an Otis spunkmeyer muffin, and choice of apple juice or orange juice. We thought this was probably the best they could do while dealing with the COVID-19 issues. The rooms were sanitized and every other room was vacant due to being sanitized for 24 hrs, then rotated into service.

Oh yes, the beds were great, the showers hot after long days in RMNP!

We stayed in a room with King-size bed. Room was nice, clean and a/c well-functioning. I love that there is a mounted lamp on each side of the bed for easy reading. The bathroom both has a overhead shower and a hand-held shower, but you have to be careful not to spill water because there is no raised tile to hold water in. Coffee maker and refrigerator are provided and came in handy. Complimentary shampoo/conditioner/lotion, body and facial bar and shower still provided. Due to Covid precautions, the breakfast is in a grab and go bag which includes apple fruit, granola bar, blueberry muffin, mixed fruit, spoon and napkin. Currently, they are having renovation on the parking lot so there is limited space.

It has a great location and the best Western brand is generally reliable. It is important to know that the reception is staffed from 7 AM to 7 PM and after 7 PM you have to call and make arrangements to check in. The front desk staff is indifferent to not particularly welcoming. They have a good breakfast which is a plus -the rooms are generally clean but even though we had been told that the rooms are not cleaned during the Covid pandemic and we put a privacy sign on our door, every day at 8:15 Housekeeping would make a loud knock to check if we needed the room to be cleaned. They need to work on this.
There seems to be some sort of remodeling going on and there is evidence of construction materials and random mattresses lying in open store rooms that you pass on the way to your room. This is not a big deal but again it takes away from the professionalism expected .
Overall as we were pretty much spending just spending most of the day at Rocky Mountain national Park it was an acceptable stay

We stayed for 3 nights while visiting the area and felt comfortable at the hotel. We had a 2 king bed room that had everything we needed. The room was spotless and clean. The room had a small microwave, refrigerator, coffee dispenser, a desk and a small table with 2 chairs. Beds were comfy and the bathroom spacious. The breakfast was a staff served meal of waffles, eggs, potatoes and sausage. They also had guest grab and go yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juice, milk, cereal, muffins and apples. Coffee bar too. Everything was very delicious. There’s also an indoor pool onsite which my 5 year old loved.

The parts of the stay that I would’ve liked to see change are the cleaning schedule. I was told upon arrival that due to covid they’re not offering housekeeping unless you ask for it. That didn’t bother me so much because I don’t necessarily need our room cleaned daily, but I did need to go to the front desk several times for trash bags, tissue etc. I was traveling with a 5 year old and so we ate in the room several times so we had a lot of trash. It was a pain having to go to the front desk over and over again. Also, the staff didn’t seem very welcoming. I saw other reviews mentioning the same thing so glad to see it wasn’t just me and my family. However, all the housekeeping and maintenance team always had smiles on their faces and said hello when walking the property. So did the lady at the door during breakfast. She was very pleasant, greeting everyone as they started their day.

I would stay again because overall we were extremely comfortable and the hotel had what we needed.

Overall our stay was good. The room was clean and comfortable with everything in working order. The rooms looked recently remodeled. The wifi could be improved. I ended up disconnecting and just using my cellular service to get better speeds.
The breakfast start time (7:00am) was a disappointment. We had reservations to be somewhere at 7:00am so were not able to have breakfast here before heading out. Given that this hotel is in a location where many people head out early, this late breakfast start time was a surprise. It would have been nice to have this noted on the website or something so that we could have been aware and planned accordingly or chosen a different hotel. We travel a lot and most places we have started have had their breakfast start around 6:00am.
It is also important to know that the front desk is only staffed from 7:00am-6:00pm. You need to call and make arrangements if you are arriving after 6:00pm. This was also not noted on the website anywhere so came as a surprise.

We are yearly visitors to Estes Park and have always stayed at this Inn because of the cleanliness and great breakfast. We arrived to MAJOR construction and bagged breakfast sacks that were horrible. We understand that due to COVID-19, they could not provide the usual self-serve hot breakfast, but a sack breakfast was not worth it at all. They could have offered reduced room rates in light of this change. The construction was not communicated to us at all and we would have definitely chose to stay elsewhere. Kind of sneaking in my opinion.

We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your stay. We take your satisfaction very seriously and are always looking to improve your guest experience. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer our usual hot breakfast buffet due to current local health department regulations in response to COVID-19. As you noted we are temporarily providing an enhanced Grab & Go breakfast until we are allowed to resume the hot breakfast buffet. This modified breakfast service is noted on our BestWestern.com reservations page and other major reservation sites. Cory Blackman General Manager cory@estessresort.com 970-586-4476

After researching many hotels in Estes Park, we decided to stay at the Best Western since it received good reviews and is part of a large chain of hotels. While many independently owned hotels are very nice, it can be a dicy decision in smaller places like Estes Park. We have had great experiences with most of the Best Westerns we have stayed in so when we arrived, we were not disappointed. The front desk promptly serviced us and gave us our room key. There was plenty of parking and room access was easy. They do have an indoor pool which we did not use. The room was of sufficient size, updated and very clean. Free breakfast was included in the morning and we took advantage of that each day. The breakfast selection was typical and average but enough to get you started for the day.....good but not great. The room had a small refrigerator in it so we were able to buy some food in advance that we needed to bring with us to Rocky Mountain National Park. Overall a very pleasant experience and highly recommend it.

Judging by previous reviews, I am not the only one with a very low opinion of this place. I wish I had read before I booked.
The staff were very cold if not downright rude. When I was booking just a couple of days before, the website read that breakfast was included and it was one reason I booked there. Other places I stayed in Colorado made adjustments that were reasonable. The man checking me in said that they were giving out breakfast bags at check in and nothing would be offered in the morning. When I asked what was in the bag and he told me, I said that I cannot eat most of what was in the bag. He said that there was nothing he could do about it, and I asked to speak to the manager. I asked the manager if there was an alternative or choice as to what was in the bag and he said no, they were all the same and there was no choice, that was what they had, and that if I couldn't eat it, it wasn't his problem and there were plenty of restaurants I could go to . I asked if there might be an adjustment to the price and he said no, as they were giving mer breakfast even if I could not eat it. (He was not giving me anything. I had paid with the intention of having some sort of choice). I asked him how he would feel if I offered him something to eat that he could not eat, and told him that was it, take it or leave it. Again, he said that was it and no adjustment could be made. I asked him if he was a Christian as he certainly was not acting like one. He said that he was the manager. When I asked who owned the business he refused to tell me. Bad enough, right?
I then called Best Western home offices, explained the situation and was put on hold for about five or six minutes. The BW person said he talked to Tim, whoever he is, he is not the manager, and said that I was free to leave, but there would be no adjustment or refund. I guess I should be grateful that I will not be held for ransom. Free to leave. Wow, just as long as I leave my money. Incredible that I would be told that I "was free to leave". I will certainly never return there and will never assume in the future that because a lodging is a Best Western it who be good.
This is the worst I have ever been treated by a hotel or motel. So much for service, just give us the money. But I was free to leave. Not only bad service but an idiotic thing to say.
