“Great place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

The inn is conveniently located close to the main entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park. It is very quiet except for the Fall River which is about 25 feet from the back of each room; that is the kind of noise that puts you to sleep. Our room had two queen size beds. Amenities included a refrigerator, a micro wave oven, a coffee maker, and a gas grill; sufficient to prepare simple meals.

Room Tip: All rooms face the Fall River.

Paula and Mark were so warm and engaging, that we immediately felt at home. Our room was comfortable and spotless. The warmth of the fireplace was an added feature that was very much enjoyed, once we returned to our room, after a busy and full day. The soft sound of the Fall River was a wonderful way to go off to sleep. Thanks to both Paula and Mark for making the beginning of our trip as the standard that we expected for the rest of our holiday. We highly recommend!!!

After visiting the Canadian Rockies a few years go, my wife and I decided to visit The American Rockies. After my wife did her homework, she decided that we should stay at The Inn on Fall River in Estes Park. Owners Mark and "Painting Paula" were warm, welcoming and very helpful. There's nothing like local knowledge. Nice rooms with balconies over looking the river and two enormous Bull Elks that stopped by before we went to breakfast were a special bonus. This team works hard to please and they deserve your business.

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend and we loved it! It was the perfect time of the year (6/1/11-6/5/11) with perfect weather and not too busy. We stayed in room 12 (cabin-like room with the river literally off our back patio) and it had a completely new and updated bathroom!! There is a queen-sized bed, a fridge, a microwave, 2 heaters in the main room and 1 in the bathroom, a plug-in fan (it's in the closet and it's big enough to fan the whole room if you need it to), a grill on our patio, and a fireplace. We didn't take advantage of any of the house keeping because we didn't stay long enough to waste water on washing towels everyday, but if we wanted to, we just needed to throw our dirty towels in the tub and we would've been refreshed with new towels. They also would've taken out trash if we we wanted them to, but they had huge trashcans and we felt we really didn't need them emptied during our stay. Other than towels and trash though, there isn't any actual housekeeping services. For just a couple like us, that's ok (we prefer our privacy anyway). For a family though, they'll have to clean up themselves and make their own beds. I noticed most of the terrible and poor reviews were 2009 or older. I'm positively sure they've improved since then (both in customer service and updating their cabins). My only complaint would be there was no cell phone service back there (we're on T-mobile, so that might have something to do with it). The managers, Mark and Paula, were absolutely wonderful! They were nice and chatted with my husband a lot about the town, things to do, the inn, animals, just tons of stuff. Bed was comfy, couch was comfy (not fold-out though), fireplace was cozy, sounds and views of the river was beautiful, bathroom was new, there's a fridge and microwave to store and re-heat food, we really couldn't have asked for more!

This place is perfect. We stayed in the treehouse (15A) for Christmas. The unit was huge. The hot tub on the balcony was amazing. The place was very quiet, it felt like our own getaway.
A couple of things we wished were different: The kitchen supplies (pots,pans,knives,etc) were very limited and low quality .Next time we will bring much of our own supplies.
The hot water was limited. The second and third days we were there, one of us took a cold shower, the other skipped the shower.
The wifi is almost nonexistant. It was slower than dial up and often times didn't even work.

We will be back soon! Our unit was upstairs, and the downstairs unit can also be rented and there are stairs that connect the units indoors. So that's good to know.
The location was good. Far enough away from things, but still very close to downtown and The Stanley.

My interactions with the staff were amazing. The woman who checked us in, drew all over a map of places to go. We used the map she gave us throughout our trip to find places to eat and shop.
