8/10 Very Good

Weekend stay
Everyone we spoke to was very friendly. The room had a small kitchenette with all the necessities. The hotel was about a 10 minute drive from Rocky Mountain National Park and had several restaurants near by. The view from the restaurant inside the hotel was beautiful!

Yep, good place to stay!
We had a great 3 night stay. The location is super easy to get to downtown and RMNP plus the views are really good! Dinner was excellent as well!

Better than expected
Better than I expected. I live somewhat locally (Fort Collins) and needed a room due to a wedding. The 2 room unit with pullout suited our family needs and was very comfortable and appointed. Highly recommend. Alot of mountain hotels aren’t that great so my expectations weren’t high but I would certainly use the Crag lodge again and may even use it now for positioning to do longer hikes in RMNP so I don’t have to get up at 3am and drive to the park in the wee hours of the morning. I’m gettin to old for that so staying here will make things nice!

We would stay at the Crag's Lodge again in a heartbeat ! I spent 12 summers ( 61-72 ) at Cheley years ago, and my wife & I honeymooned, and made many trips to Estes Park. Was always curious about the Crag's Lodge. We just spent 4 days @ an Airbb with some of our family. Spent the last night in Estes @ the Crag's. It was great ! Had a great room ! Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. It was raining the day we arrived, and the nicest lady at the front desk, met us " outside in the rain ", with a large umbrella. When we checked out, another very nice lady asked about our stay, and invited us to come back. We told her our home in Texas was built in 1912, and that we really enjoyed staying at the lodge. She pointed us to the photograph of the man and his family that built the lodge for his family. It was great ! We could not have imagined a better experience during our brief stay at the Crag's Lodge ! We will definitely be back ! Only this time, for a longer stay ! David P.
