The location is nice, the hotel is on a walkway on the lakeshore where Elks are coming every evening. We were given the worst room on the property - room 111 first floor. It is in fact a basement room with just a little window open to the back of the building and at ground level. The room itself is...

Room was spacious, bed was comfortable, housekeepers were efficient and friendly, staff was courteous and cordial. The restaurant offers views of Estes Lake and the mountains, inside and outside dining (with heaters and firepits, if required), with reasonable prices. The resort is adjacent to Estes Lake, which offers access to a 3.75 mile paved walking/biking trail (around the lake), fishing...

The best part about this hotel is the personnel. Super helpful and friendly. From the top to the bottom, they are all great! The views and location of this hotel, right on Lake Estes, make it almost worth the price of admission. The rooms are just ordinary hotel rooms, so you are paying for the location. It is quite a...

Relaxing, beautiful Resort. The rooms and surroundings were lovely and serene. Cozy fireplaces to sit around inside and outside, and activities daily. If you plan to stay over the weekend, though, be advised that they have a lot of weddings and gatherings scheduled, and it is quite crowded!

The resort is beautiful on the outside, kinda old inside. It needs to be remodeled. The room we stayed in had terrible wi-fi and because the room was on the lower floor we had spiders! so be prepared for uninvited guests.

We went for a family event and had small children with us. The staff was courteous however, made a few comments on making sure our toddlers understood the walls were thin.
