The service was topnotch. Every time we had a question about the area or our stay, they were so helpful. We took advantage of their bikes and enjoyed riding around Estes Lake.

Perfect place to stay. Room was very clean, Free DVDs..Pool, Grill, park for kids, sip and paint...! It's just 0.3 miles away from Estes lake which is 5 mins away by walk. Very close to downtown. I would definitely stay in this place if I plan a trip to Rockies.

We had a great stay. Happy hour was fun and inexpensive. The staff was very accommodating. We loved being able to have a fire outside on a nice spring night and enjoyed visiting with others at the motel. Breakfast was nice as well.

The staff was fantastic. They recommended some great local placed we would not have known about. Breakfast was good. Lots of options even though it is only a Continental breakfast. Plenty to eat. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Fantastic view of the lake. Can't wait to come back.
