Cute rustic old lodgePosted Jul 11, 2014
The price was more than fair...the staff friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. It's not the Ritz but I wasn't expecting it to to be. All in all we had a lovely time.

Beautiful setting. Great evening campfires.Posted Jul 1, 2014
Cons: Upkeep of lodges.
Location: Estes Park is wonderful little town. Felt very secure.
The wranglers sang by the campfires. They took extra time to show our children how to use a lasso. Elk on property was delightful to see.

New ownershipPosted Jun 23, 2014
Cons: Expedia needs to confirm with the hotel that the booking happened.
This hotel has been bought out and is no longer using Expedia. When I arrived they did not have my reservation and did not have any more cabins available. They gave me a room right over the lobby that was very loud (I needed a quiet room to work), the sheets were not changed and they didn't have a mini fridge (as promised on their website). The new owners and staff were very nice and very accommodating, it was just unfortunate that they weren't very organized.

Unique Historic Mountain LodgePosted Jun 13, 2014
Pros: The historic feel of the lodge is extremely unique. There is plenty of room for kids to run and play and to walk your dogs.
Location: Located close to Rocky Mountain National Park and to shops and restaurants. There is even an awesome restaurant located on the main floor of the hotel
This is our second stay at the Historic Elkhorn Lodge in Estes Park, Colorado. The Lodge is under new management. This Lodge is a work in progress since the flood last fall. The staff of the Elkhorn Lodge are working hard to improve this unique and historic Lodge. If you need a kid and dog friendly place to stay in Estes Park (adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park) than this could be the perfect place for you to stay. My family and our dog have had a wonderful time staying here. It is a rustic lodge with stunning views along the river. The bedrooms are comfortable and very clean. True to the Lodges history, the bathrooms even have original claw foot tubs/showers. Some of the rooms even have a seating balcony. They are working hard on restoring historic cabins. They even invited us to participate in their family bonfire. As for wildlife, we were able to view The staff are always willing to help out even during a very busy reconstruction.

Neat older hotelPosted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: History stories
This is a neat older Hotel. Due to the floods and weather, they really are trying hard to get back up and running. The History of the hotel is interesting. If you need a place to stay and love older Hotels, this is the place. But keep in mind it is older and they are working hard to make things better.

Very close to town, nice rustic feel.Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: Pleasant little lodge, with great rustic feel to it. Close to Estes Park, you could easily walk there in a few minutes. Rooms were quaint and clean
Cons: They are still recovering from the 2013 floods, so I wouldn't suggest anything else except continue the great job in getting back up and running
Location: Perfect location on the west side of Estes park, easy to access Rocky Mountain NP, or walk into town for a meal.
It's a rather large property with a variety of room types situated just to the west of Estes Park, makes it easy to get into Rocky Mountain National Park without wading through the traffic in town. The rooms are quiet, clean, and rustic. Don't expect many frills except on the bedsheets. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

Funky HistoricPosted Oct 15, 2013
Pros: Ambiance of a historic hotel
Cons: Up keep of out buildings and flooring, tiling and painting of bathroom.
Location: Rocky Mt. National Park
The cabin I originally booked was very old and dilapidated, You could see 1" gap under the door. The only heat available was an old small portable radiator, the carpet was filthy, I asked if there were other accommodations avail able , the staff graciously moved me to the main lodge, My room there was large and comfortable. The lodge is historic and I appreciated that, but up keep not that great, Good price point for the area. I will probably stay in the main lodge again.

Not so hotPosted Oct 9, 2012
Pros: It was in Estes Park.
Cons: Everything listed above.
Location: Beautiful surroundings. Close to downtown Estes.
The hotel rooms have no heat (in the mountains, in October!) so space heaters have to be on constantly. Our room blew a fuse because the lights, tv, and space heater were all on. I didn't shower the two days we were there because it was so cold in the bathroom. No microwave, or anything extra besides beds and a tv. Crappy wallpaper was peeling off the walls. Cracks in the ceiling. Night front desk staff was unprofessional. This would be an excellent historic hotel if it had new staff and a major make-over.

Buyer BewarePosted Oct 8, 2012
We booked this reservation through Expedia as a room with a fireplace. This was a duplex cabin on the grounds near the main lodge. Not only was there no fireplace, the tiny built-in-the-wall space heater barely heated one of the two bedrooms. The rest of the suite was frozen as it got down to 13 degrees that night. We piled on the blankets from every bed onto just one bed, rearranged that bed to get as close to the wall heater as we could, and still shivered all night. While reaaranging furniture, we discovered dirty towels and a sock under the bed. The TV had no DVD player and was in the bedroom without heat. The curtains only covered a portion of the windows, so privacy was a joke. The hot water spicket spurted and spewed out luke cool water, so we didn't even attempt a shower. The clerk at the desk could do nothing but shrug his shoulders. It was so bad it was comical, but at least we laughed about the adventurous night we endured.
