    Had a room with fireplace and balcony right on the river. Carpet was dirty but everything else was super clean. Staff at the breakfast next morning was super nice. Saw elk in the morning. Loved Estes Park. I would stay here again.

    We only spent one night, but enjoyed it. The river running behind our room was the highlight of our stay. We are already talking about taking a family trip with both of our children and coming back to Estes Park and staying here.
