Very nice place to stay for the price. Wasn't concerned whatsoever about staying here, the room was very clean and tidy. The rooms are dated but you can't beat it for the price. John took great care of us during our 2 night stay and I would definitely stay again.

John is really nice. It was a good price especially for being located in Estes Park. John was excited to give any additional information we needed for our hikes, or anything we wanted to do that day. And the hot tub is really awesome. 10/10 would recommend this motel to anyone.

The hotel exceeded our expectations and when we return to Estes Park we will be staying here. Pros: great price, wonderful service from a local business that actually cares, bucket full of restaurant menus in the lobby, comfy mattress, beautiful nature photos on the walls of the room. Though the room has not been recently renovated, it was spotless. No...

Recently stayed here for 2 nights. Very clean and pet friendly. Other hotels were very expensive but the Columbine Inn was affordable and accommodating to my 2 small dogs. They have a nice outdoor hot tub that is open all night. Would recommend this motel and would return again.

First the positives: This motel is very clean; the owner is accommodating and helpful. However, the room we saw on the website had a chest of drawers. Our room had no place to store clothes for a whole week, and the motel was full. The owner did provide additional hangars. The continental breakfast was very inadequate; no fruit, no yogurt;...

This is an old, tired motel. From the reviews I was expecting something a little better and for the price I was extremely disappointed. And the breakfast..... Tea / Coffee and packet muffins. Horrible! I would certainly not recommend.

The owner of Columbine Inn really knows how to take care of his customers. I had to change the dates of a reservation and John quickly told hotels.com to waive the $90 fee. The place is clean and in the perfect location if you're going to Rocky Mountain National Park. Great visit to Colorado!

Yes, the owner is friendly enough, but he needs to adapt to his guests. As another reviewer mentioned, you are out of luck for a cup of coffee until 7:30. I was awake for hours by then, with the time change and all, and didn't appreciate the long wait. On the second and third mornings I just decided to grab...

For a few dollars more, you can get a much nicer place. Problems w/ Columbine: 1. shower head is 5'5" up from floor 2. No hair dryer 3. no diet soda for sale "they don't sell." 4. "I can not email you a reservation confirmation for only a 1 night stay." 5. no coffee maker in the room, and one...
