The room was decorated beautifully in log-cabin style furniture and paintings. The bed was very comfortable. The room did not have a hair dryer. They are dog friendly, but do not allow you to leave your dog alone in the room, so you would either have to leave your dog in your car when at a restaurant, or find a restaurant that allows dogs on the patio, which is a cold experience in the winter time :) Otherwise a great place to stay.

Nice area. Very close to town. Could easily walk to restaurants, shops and the heart of Estes during nice weather but otherwise a few minutes drive. The rooms are spacious and clean with a refrigerator and microwave which is always nice. Coffee in the room and in the office which also had snacks and water. It’s next to a golf course so we woke up to numerous elk on the fairway! Amazing sight to see! Would definitely stay here again. Great hotel and value!

What I liked about the property was nice people, friendly places to go are very close. What I didn’t like was the place needs to get up graded. It needs work to be done. Bathroom was a tiny hole in the wall thank goodness I was able to fit. Disappointed.
