If you were looking for a true resort, this is not one. The only thing that was great about our stay was the view. The decor is rustic but it’s very old and smells of a basement. Half the things advertised at their so-called resort we’re actually not available because they don’t even provide those services although they list them on their website. We heard the hotel restaurant was amazing so we made our reservation and went to be nothing but disappointed again. My wife steak tasted like it was cooked on a charcoal grill that hasn’t been cleaned in 10 years and my chicken marsala was basically noodles with wine dumped over it and a charge of $38. The fire pits that look amazing in their pictures are nothing like that in real life. They are two little fake fire pits that are propane lit that barely put off enough heat to warm your hands directly over it while you get waves of gas leaking in the air. We were so let down and put off by the hotel that we didn’t even make the night. We left and drove all the way back home to Denver at 9 o’clock at night because it was just such a disappointment, do not believe their website, like I said the only thing this place has going for it is the view but it is the furthest thing from a resort if you could ever get.

The Estes Park Resort is the perfect spot for a mountain getaway. With a view overlooking the mountains and lake, alongside the rustic furniture and adorable in-suite fireplace, this resort was exactly what a solo traveler from busy NY. It had the perfect mix of rest and relaxation while also being next to all of the local restaurants, shops and of course, Rocky Mountain National Park. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure you have what you need and is friendly every step of the way. A big shoutout to Karen and Mike at the front desk and Sebastian at the Dunraven Restaurant, located inside the resort. Some of the most helpful and friendliest hotel staff I've ever met. Thanks for a wonderful stay Estes Park Resort! I will certainly be back :)

Great property with good rooms. Nice location right next to the lake and short drive to downtown Estes park. The rooms seem a little old but clean. Easy access to food with the Dunraven being apart of the hotel. We did have trouble with room service taking over an hour to bring our food and then bringing it cold, but this was a miss communication issue with the Dunraven and not the hotels fault. Also, Dunraven is a bit expensive but the menu looks good, maybe just don't do room service.

Nice location and beautiful views of the lake. Not too close to town, but close enough. Several inconveniences were experienced, and for the price is unacceptable.
