Very nice place to stay. Josh was a very pleasant person and very accommodating

Great location!! Friendly, helpful staff.
Cool location right near the park but just a quick hop into town. Patio over the river was great, but road was on the other side. Kitchen was minimalist, but functional. Friendly greeter with excellent pizza recommendations (Antonio’s!!!!!!).

Heaven in Estes Park!
This place was amazing! It was so cheap, but so insanely nice. Our room was on the second floor with the little river right outside and it was so great to just sit outside and relax. My girlfriend and I are already planning to go back!

Nice room.
I paid a little more for a river room. It was beautiful and the sounds of the water was nice. The only down side is that you can see the cars from the main road from the room. It ruins the tranquility when a car goes by. Also, the balcony by the river is open so strangers staying in other rooms can walk by your room. Overall it was a relaxing place to stay.

Nice place
The check in was great, the lady on site was very helpful, and the location was great. Our only complaint was our upstairs neighbors; it’s an older building and they had on heavy boots the whole time.
