Clean, comfortable rooms (ours had a king & a queen which is a great combo when travelling with others), which housekeeping keeps decked out with fancy towel and tissue folding. Rooms included refrigerator and microwave. Fresh popcorn is in the lobby. Games and DVDs to borrow and use in your room. Traditional continental...

This place is everything we need when on vacation to Estes Park. The rooms are very cute and clean. Whenever we stay here we request a room with the view of the lake. The rooms include TV, cable, DVD player, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and super comfy beds. There are tons of our door games, pool, hot tub, and...

The resort itself offered a clean room and wonderful customer...

Room was very nice (good size) and quiet. View over the lake was really lovely (note that some of the rooms without the view over the lake are nearer to the road and may hear it). Staff was pleasant and helpful. Walk by the lake towards the town was very pleasant (although not open all the way, during to ongoing...

Older shell has been meticulously maintained and updated. Plenty of activities, and we were a huge fan of the popcorn in the lobby. Very close to Lake Estes and the walking trail. However, you have to drive to get downtown. We really enjoyed our stay and thought the room prices were a great deal. To be honest, our only hesitation...

Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback. Regarding your dogs we are happy to have well behaved pets and we do charge a extra $20 for each dog which I think is really a good deal when you consider that a lot of Hotels don't allow for pets at all. I also think that if you were to...

We visited off-season in Mid-March, so the place(and the town) was very quiet. Really nice-sized room with great view and extremely helpful staff - the directions they gave us for the "scenic way" for our drive to Breckenridge were so fruitful!

The staff was excellent giving suggestions for dinner out, giving us extra blankets, making extra popcorn for our movie in (of which they had a great selection) and in general being pleasent to be around. The rooms were much bigger than expected and the furniture was nice. We will stay here again.

Was really surprised at how personable all the staff were. Great amenities with free popcorn, movies, and board games and free breakfast. Eliza was awesome right when we walked into the lobby! The checkout system for the movies was really easy and good.
