“Cute cozy and comfortable.”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Nice location close to town. Nice staff and clean updated rooms. We came in the early spring but I bet this is a great place in the summer with room to sit outside your room and enjoy the scenery. Beds were really comfortable. Doors have screen doors so in the summer you can leave your door open and enjoy the mountain air.

Thanks so much for the review! We all try to encourage to take advantage of the nice cool breeze we get from the mountains. We rarely need a/c. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We update rooms every winter, so next time there may be even more improvement! We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks again and take care!

Discovery Lodge was a great place to stay. It was with in walking distance of the main strip in Estes and the grocery store. There was a cute little pond right out our front door. The staff was very polite and our room was great. Thanks Discovery Lodge!

We came to Estes Park for a girls weekend and after much research chose Discovery Lodge, both my sister and my cousin said we made the perfect choice. 1st we were pleased that it was within walking distance to town, no one had to drive home if we wanted to have a few drinks. Rebecca at the front desk was most helpful with everything from ice to towels for the hot tub to restaurant recommendations and then discounts for some of the restaurants. Much appreciated!! The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of hiking, loved that our room was so close to it and the hot tub was outside. Everyone else that we met that were staying there were really nice and also seemed to be having a great time there. Our next door neighbor even came over to take pictures for us before we went out.

We got a fireplace room that was good for us because it seemed to be oversized and the price was well worth it. The bathroom was alittle small for 3 girls but we easily made it work. The beds seemed to be pretty new and were darn comfy. Were so glad to have a fridge and microwave. We didn't have much of a noise problem because our room was on the end. Thanks for such a wonderful stay. Can't wait to come back!!

Wow! Sounds like you had a very successful girls outing! :D I'm glad you all had a great time. I try to keep everyone updated with discounts, great restaurants and places and hikes to do around Estes. I was once new here too! :D
Next time you come visit us, let us know and we will get you a different room to compare, but still with a fireplace of course. We sell wood now here in the lobby too.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review. We really appreciate it! We look forward to seeing you again! Take care!

Two night stay, on the way from moving to WI from Albuquerque. Very friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location as it's within walking distance to gas stations, restaurants, shops, grocery, and even a movie theater. Great views and nice to have the hot tub outside rather than inside. Overall very pleased. Only negative is that I could hear the people next door, but that's nitpicking really since I could care less.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of the Rockies.
