Travellers' Choice
We are proud to offer you 10 different room types. From cozy single queen rooms with great views to a sprawling King Suite we have a room that will suit any need. We have a total of 49 rooms, 24 on the first floor and 25 on the second. Most of our motel rooms have the views Rocky Mountain National Park is known for. Our philosophy is very simple: Keep our rates as low as possible while providing service, comfort and amenities that truly make for an enjoyable stay. We arent fancy, were not sophisticated and we certainly arent corporate. Were more like a big family inviting you to come share Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park with us in lodging we think is very special.

Staff was friendly and accomodating. Room was very clean. Nice area to eat breakfast. Would suggest mountain view room as I had deer come across the backyard most mornings. Great location in Estes Park, especially to downtown and RMNP. I would definitely recommend it!

Hotel's Favourite
My family had been traveling the state of Colorado for 10 days, staying at a new location every night. Some of them received high reviews but none as good as the Blue Door Inn. We were greeted upon arrival by by a wonderful young man and and lady who who made check in a breeze and gave us all kinds of additional info we were looking for. We got 2 rooms with 2 Queen beds each. The rooms were fabulous. They had everything we could have needed or wanted, including a microwave and larger than normal fridge. The rooms were super clean. There was also a beautiful outdoor pool. It was lit up and just sparkled. We got in late so did not get to use it. There was also a campfire with a musician and his guitar and he was singing for the guests. What a special treat that you don't see at the big name motels. And he was good!! There was a nice complimentary breakfast in the morning in the office that offered a variety of food, coffee and juices. Again, very clean. We wish there was a Blue Door Inn in every town. We would definitely recommend staying at this one in Estes Park Colorado!!

This review just made my day! This is exactly how we want every single guest to feel when they stay with us and it is an honor to read such a great review. We love that we were "the best place to stay" on your 10 day vacation. That is such a wonderful compliment. Summer time is our favorite time of year because we get to offer all of the outside complimentary amenities! We love that you joined our musician and enjoyed the show. All of our performers are locals and they take so much pride in what they do. They bring so much fun to our Inn and we love having them here on the property every single night during the summer months. We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. And thank you so much for the recommendations! We would love the opportunity to host you again next time you visit Estes Park! Kind Regards, Jackie Robinson General Manager

Enjoyed our stay. Room was immaculate, bed was comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was very nice. Would definitely recommend. Only criticism is the room was a little smaller than expected and the furniture was sparse and that made it difficult to hang out with the friends we were traveling with.

Thank you for stopping by to leave a review! Our cleanliness and customer service is a big reason why people choose to stay with us. If you look at any of our many reviews, these will be in every one of them. Our complimentary breakfast has a wide selection, and we only look to add hot options by next summer. We do have room types ranging from small to large in square feet. If you ever decide to stay with us again, which I hope you do. I would suggest going to our website directly. There you will see all the room types we offer, and the square footage per room as well. Sincerely, Management

Stayed wed-fri during the off season in the winter. Perfect for two people looking to hike in the Rockies for a few days. Breakfast was small, but exactly what we were looking for! Views from the balcony were beautiful. The staff was exceptionally friendly.

First off, thank you for stopping by to leave a review! Winter hiking in the park is always serene. It is during the off season, so less crowds, plus the snow capped mountains are gorgeous. Our complimentary continental breakfast is perfect before any hike, but we do plan on adding hot options by this coming summer. You get amazing views of Prospect Mountain and Twin Sisters. Our staff is wonderful, and we are blessed to have them. They are all local as well, so they have great suggestions for dining and hiking. I hope you will come and see us again on your next trip to Estes Park. Sincerely, Management
