This is a very old motel but clean and comfortable. The young couple managing it was intent on our comfort and pleasure. We would definitely stay here again, especially because of its proximity to the Bird & Jim Restaurant on the property.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and amenities offered at this quaint motel. The bathrooms are renovated very nicely and the staff was incredibly friendly. The weather there in early October was snowy and cold. But it was so nice and cozy to stay warm inside

Cute and just perfect for our stay. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. The rooms aren’t too big but it was clean and beds were comfy. The only complaint I would have was the lighting in the bathroom could be better, there was no lighting above the shower. For the

Hey Melanie! Thank you so much for staying with us and for your great review! Im so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, we enjoyed having you. Thank you for your suggestion about the lighting in the shower. Winter is our slow time and is when we try and do as many upgrades and tweaks to the property as we can so I will definitely put that on my list of things to tackle! Thank you again for the kind words and for taking the time to share them with us. Have a great 2019!

Formal lunch dining. We have been going there for many years as a family when we visit Estes Park. Lunch consists of 2 Soups of the day and salad buffet. Eat much as you want. The buffalo stew, pumpkin squash, and potatoe soups are the best! I would recommend to call ahead to

Hey Chelabean, Sounds like a great lunch spot, unfortunately we are a hotel so I think you might have posted to the wrong company.

Great location as closest to the Park Visitors Center and entrance. The room was nicely updated. We stayed in winter and the heater was noisy. Would be okay when fixed. Located on the main road it was quiet. Located near several restaurants.

Hey Howdy! Thank you so much for staying with us and for leaving your feedback! Im glad you enjoyed the updated rooms! Im sorry that your heater was a bit noisy. I will definitely have that serviced, thank you for letting us know. Don't hesitate to let us know while you are here next time if the heater is noisy, we are more than happy to service that immediately as sometimes it is a very quick adjustment. If its not a quick fix, we can move you to another room so you wont have to deal with the noise! Either way, your comfort and happiness is why we are here so don't be shy to make us work for it!! Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we hope you will come back and allow us to take care of you again in the future! Have a great holiday season!

Hey Sowmya! I don't know of any that are solely vegetarian, however, there are many places around here that have vegetarian options available. In fact, we have 5 restaurants within walking distance that should be able to meet your needs. As far as the hiking goes, yes, there are many areas to hike that have plenty of shade! Right up the road there is a beautiful lake called Mary's Lake that has tons of shade. There is also Big Thompson River that runs all throughout the town and there are big beautiful shaded areas that would be great for picnics with plenty of wildlife and raging river to enjoy. When you get here we can map it all out for! We look forward to your stay! See you soon! Ryan - General Manager

Sorry for the delay in answering, we have had some technical difficulties with our hand shaking abilities in the computer. Some have answered correctly. Be prepared for any weather, yesterday 3" of snow, today 60. Very unpredictable. Thanks for asking.

Sorry to take so long in answering Melissa. We have a few great restaurants near us & in walking distance. Smokin Dave's Barbecue is a local favorite & two restaurants nearby give our guests a 10% discount, The Otherside Restaurant and Coffee on the Rocks. We have been busy re-modeling our front office and some of the rooms in our front building and have added a brand new hot tub near our pool area. There is an excellent shuttle service in Estes Park.

We do not allow smoking in the rooms, but we have designated areas outdoors that we have to enforce because of fire hazards in our area especially during dry seasons. the city is very strict about this. Thanks for inquiring. DeAnna

"Ask for a room on the higher level with a patio."
"Elk and coyote were both heard across the road. Sitting on the deck was enjoyable."
"Right at the base of the Rocky Mtn National Park"
"If you can swing it go for a balcony room - you can enjoy the sun set over Long's Peak on your balcony."
