Coyote Mtn. Lodge is easy to find and easy to like. The people at the desk are friendly and accommodating. The place is not luxurious, but it is comfortable, the rooms look like they've recently been remodeled, and everything is spotless. We had 2 queen size beds that were very comfortable, ditto the pillows! You'll get a good night's sleep... More

The Coyote is a great value, and all would have been almost okay... The rooms are old, very old. You might call them a bit shabby. But that is not even so bad. I was there in early October, and it happened to be very cold already, and snowing for 2 days. My room had the door plus 2 large... More

I think that the Coyote Mountain Lodge is ONE of, if not THE best hotel stay value in Estes Park! We have stayed at quite a few hotels there over 12 years in Colorado. Estes Park is only a few hours from home, so we visit our "second home town" as frequently as possible. We have enjoyed numerous Scottish Festivals... More

Stayed here for one night while just passing through. It was clean and met our needs. The price was reasonable. I would like a larger room if I were going to stay in Estes Park for more than one night. The location is very quiet and convenient to the downtown area.

An "old" style motel / hotel with great views. We reserved a "suite" that sleeps 6. I would recommend spending a buck and getting another room next door to give you an extra bathroom. We ended up doing just that after arrival. The rooms are clean and quite comfortable. Beds comfy. Fridge and microwave in the room. The "vintage" bathrooms... More
