I stayed here for 3 nights. The owners are a lovely couple, and were very helpful, I enjoyed chatting with them very much. The hotel was clean and very quiet, which was great, and I could relax and sleep well after hiking in the day. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet hotel that isn't too expensive, this place...

This is a old motor-inn sort of feeling motel. We had a queen room. The bed was fine. Two pillows. The room had two chairs and a small table. The bathroom was VERY clean. The walls were a little thin, and the room was pretty small. The owner was friendly, and obviously took great pride in his establishment. There is...

What we needed was a clean, cozy, convenient, comfortable, & cheap place to stay. This place met all of our criteria. Our three days were spent birding in Rocky Mountain National Park & this was the perfect place to crash at the end of the day. John gave VERY helpful advice to help make our birding trip even more successful!...

The room was very clean, but that's about all it had going for it. Oh, the bed was comfortable, and the room was within walking distance of a good restaurant and a walking trail around the lake. The breakfast was minimal at best.

Room was very comfortable and clean. We got what we asked for - a two queen room. Staff were very helpful. The owner John is knowledgeable of the area and went out of his way to help my family and I with an item for our next destination. The location is conveniently close to Rocky Mountain National Park. My family...

Excellent views and super clean. Check in was very easy and staff was super friendly. Quiet place and the rates were awesome for July in Estes Park. Would totally stay here again. We only used the A/C once as the windows caught a great cross breeze. Parking was tight but available.

Great affordable place to stay if you're on a budget. Rooms are circa 1980's, but, they are very clean. Don't expect a huge selection for their continental breakfast. It's very basic and they don't open the door till 730am. It's a great option if you're passing through for a night or 2.

My husband and I stayed here one night. The room was small, but it was exceptionally clean, and the bed was very comfortable. It had all the amenities of larger hotels, and the owners' pride was evident. Short walk to delicious Grumpy Gringo, and very easy to wake up and enjoy Trail Ridge.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel. Property was near and clean. Beds were comfortable. Room was very small which is fine if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room. Room includes free Wi-Fi and a continental breakfast-rolls, cereal, and coffee. No pool but there is an outdoor hot tub. We would stay there again.
