Comfort Inn Estes Park
Travel Blogs from Estes Park
Yesterday was a driving day (9+ hours) from Jackson Wyoming to Estes Park Colorado. Today we went to Rocky Mountain National Park. A drive on Fall River Road is a must. Its a curvy mountain road where at times the side of the road is a serious drop off. No motor homes here. From here we made a quick stop in Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs before heading to Pikes Peak.
Doug- We are not city people, so getting into a national park was what we needed. I was here 15 years ago on a back packing trip (some of my clothes and equipment came back with me) but I did not drive the road to the alpine zone. Incredible scenery and we saw moose, elk, bighorn sheep and two coyotes. No bears or mountain lions to ...
... rangers both ways so they were pretty happy and managed to pick up their Junior Ranger books at the same time.. We walked first up to Nymph Lake and had a picnic there before heading back and doing a lap of Bear Lake...stunning views of the mountains and also a few unmelted patches of snow so plenty of snowball fights and everyone went home ...
... after my visit to the dr. Which on that note…I can see some slight improvement on my arms and hands and face but my legs are still bad. I know it takes time but at least I have meds on board now.
We drove into the park briefly and looked for elk and then came back when the room was ready and I took a nap. All these pills are wiping me and I know the best time to see wildlife is dusk and dawn so I am trying to ...

I drove through the desolate Nevada desert at night. Most people, especially anyone from the eastern US, cannot comprehend the darkness out there. Hours without a single light, a single resident. Growing up with it - I love it. I cannot stand to drive places like Los Angeles - hours and hours and hours of solid buildings and cars and lightposts ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Estes Park
Very nice rooms
We stayed at the Comfort Inn Estes Park in May 2005. The room we had was newly remodeled, had a desk, microwave, balcony, and fridge. We had 1 queen bed and the room size was fairly large.
I would definitely stay here again. The lady that checked us in was very nice and helpful.
We stayed here last year and really liked it. This year what a surprise. They have redone all the rooms. Everything is fresh and clean still but the colors are great. The manager took us on a tour and everything is so well done and thought out. GREAT JOB. We will be back at the end of summer and again next spring. Look for all the elk around town, pretty cool!
Excellent hotel great views
I stayed here Sept 4 to 8 2004. This is my second year here and it is an excellent hotel. My room was in the back and while I was unpacking there was the sound of elk. I opened the door and they were in the parking lot. The hotel is up the street from Lake Estes a great place to walk around. The breakfast buffet is Ok..needs to be changed as I stayed there for 5days, cereal juice, muffins,toast,bagels but no protein, Yogurt would have been nice along with fruit for the cereal.
I love this motel
I love this motel! This is the second time we have stayed here and even though the first time was over eight years ago, the motel is still perfect. Spotless rooms, beautiful views, good location and friendly staff-what more could you ask for? The price was great, also. Highly recommended!
The hotel is great. We stayed in the back units that are off the highway making it quiet! Also great views from these units.
They have a great breakfast in the morning. More then you could eat.
We Loved it. Will visit again.
This Comfort Inn was not even comparable to the low budget motels in the area. The room was priced over $150 and even though we had a discount, it was not worth it. Water damage and wet carpets were the least of our complaints. The hotels voice mail system was out and we missed several of our connections for the wedding that we were in town for. The management was less then helpful and did not offer any type of compensation when we let them know we were not 100% satisfyed. The "Super 8" down the road would be a better value for your dollar.
Over all- poor management and nasty rooms makes this a no win hotel in my book.
Not the Best Comfort Inn
I've stayed at many Comfort Inns around the U.S. and this was the worst one that I've ever encountered. I guess if I was paying $50 for the room I couldn't complain, but when you're paying over $100 and you get poor service, musty smelling rooms with water damage...then I have 100 reasons to complain.
Don't let the pictures online fool you..it's not even close...there's a whole other part of the hotel that doesn't look like the pictures..I shared this information with management.
Your money is better spent at a different hotel!
Probably would try somewhere else next time.
6/22-6/24- Arrived at Comfort Inn only to find that even though I had made my reservation 8 months earlier, they didn't give me the 1st floor room by the pool that I had requested. Some excuse was given. We were checking in early too! Room was nice and large with micro and refridg. Got to the pool which was COLD! The brochure said that the pool was heated to 80 degrees. We contacted the management, and TO THEIR CREDIT, they got maintenence out RIGHT AWAY. By the next day, the pool was warm.
Great Place to Stay!
Nice Place, Nice Folks. My family stayed here about 8 years ago and we returned this summer. It has been remodeled and the rooms are superb.
Really enjoyed our stay. Great continental breakfast. Most helpful employees. Highly recommend!
