8/10 Very good

Good stay but little pricey
Nice location but for the price expected rooms to be larger. Basic room and breakfast. Also mountain view is a misnomer. All hotels in Estes park are mountain view. The place is in the mountains.

Perfect and cozy!
We loved the look of this place and it felt cozy. We stayed for 2 nights. We forgot some items when we left and they were very accommodating and understanding and got them back to us. Its a short little trip to downtown! We loved it! There was plenty of beautiful views!

Super hotel in a great location. Loved waking up to mountain views. Staff was very friendly and even called to confirm we would make it in time for check in and if not steps to take. Bed sheets were so soft and comfy!
