If I could give this place six stars I would.The location on the river is quite tranquil. The owners take pride in the facility and it shows.This resort has more to offer than the others and for half the price. Jeff from Kansas

Check in was easy and friendly. Wasn't sure what to expect with the fireplace king suite, but my husband and I were both delighted with the room and the winter price. The room, kitchen, and bath areas are very clean and looked newly updated. The shower was large and plenty of hot water with various settings. The kitchen area was...

We've stayed at Deer Crest Resort many times at all times of the year on visits to Estes Park. Prices are very reasonable, the river is only steps from the rooms, and rooms are always clean and well maintained. It's an excellent value for the price.

Great adults only (no children or pets) place to base at when visiting Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park - little or no traffic and a decent place to eat next door. Facility is very quiet and clean.

Our stay at Deer Crest has been wonderful. Rooms are very clean and it's nice to have a fireplace to take the chill out of the room. We will definitely stay at this lodge again. The kitchenette is perfect instead of having to eat out every meal. All utensils, plates, and cookware are clean. My only complaint is the jacuzzi...

Hi Cari, Thank you for your recent stay. Our fireplace mini suites are great for anytime stays, including longer stays, such as yours. As you say the kitchenette is well equipped, so you don't have to eat out every meal. And agree the fireplace is neat to have during the Winter. We look forward to your return visit. You mentioned...

We always visit Estes Park the weekend after Thanksgiving, and this year we managed to book the same room as last year (311), one of the fireplace suites. The hot tub is only a few feet across the patio. The DVD library is extensive. The kitchen even has wine GLASSES (not plastic). Wonderful new shower since last year. And if...

BFF and I stayed here for 2 nights. We rented the Bears Den based on reviews here on TA. Once again, thank you fellow reviewers. Our room was so inviting. Decorated in cabin style with bear accents. Large stone fireplace. Kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook. We didn't, but you surely could. Furniture comfortable for relaxing...

Very convenient location to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. Rooms are clean, not fancy, but weren't in room much. Ken as the owner is hard to beat. He provided great recommendations! He treats you like you are old friends and they go out of their way to make your stay exceptional.

It's in a great setting, big clean rooms & a smallish footprint of a hotel! And it's less than 10 mins from the entrance to Rocky Mountain! It was perfect!! The river out back is very soothing also in the evening if you sleep with a window cracked open. I'd happily stay here again if we're near Rocky Mountain.

The first time we stayed, we had a room with a kitchen and fireplace. The second time it was just myself and my nearly grown son, so we had two queen beds and mini fridge and microwave (room 102). It was simple but clean, quiet, comfortable, and best of all, we were greeted by a magnificent elk after our long...
