Historical Traveler Reviews Alpine Trail Ridge Inn Estes Park
Nice Friendly Stay
All of the other positive reviews are correct, this is a great place to stay. The rooms are clean and spacious. We stayed in a double bed balcony room for two nights in Spetember 2005, and liked the accomodations and Rocky Mountain National Park so much that we decided to stay a third night. Alpine Trail Ridge Inn has some nice personal touches, like complimentary internet access in the office, herbal teas and hot cider, as well as coffee, also in the office, a nice heated pool, and of course great views of the Rockies. We also enjoyed the book of poetry that came with the room. The staff is extremely friendly and informed us of certain locations that gave us the best opportunities for wildlife viewing. The restaurant next door is very good also. Will return if we ever go back.
Great staff, great location
I just completed my third stay at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn and as always had a wonderful experience. The staff give great advice on the local trails, spots for photography, etc, especially Robert. Jay and Fran give the place that personal touch that so many other hotels and motels are lacking and make you feel welcome and like part of the family. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable and the on-site restaurant is a bonus after a long day of hiking.
Alpine Trail Ridge Inn is best place to stay!
My husband and I recently stayed at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn in Estes Park, Colorado and found the experience absolutely wonderful! Jay and Fran Grooters, the managers, really made us feel like we were right at home. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and they were all very knowledgeable about restraurants and places of interest in Estes Park. They even had maps of the various hiking trails in the area in the lobby! We got the feeling that they would bend over backwards to help us, no matter what the need.
When we got to our room, we were amazed to find it so clean. There was no evidence of dirt anywhere (and I looked because I just couldn't believe it!) The pine room decor was quite pleasant, and the beds were very comfortable. There were plenty of towels, too. Our room was every bit as nice, or nicer, than rooms we have had at various Embassy Suites and Holiday Inns, for much less cost.
All in all, we would highly recomment the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn to anyone traveling in the Estes Park area. We will definitely stay there again. We see no reason to stay anywhere else.
Great Value and Location
Our family just spent four nights at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn, and we were extremely satisfied with the accomodations. The room was VERY clean, and the couple that run the hotel are very friendly, and were very helpful with advise about hiking trails and other information about the park. The Inn has a wonderful location, very close to the park entrance. We also saw a herd of Elk almost every morning from our balcony. It is very reasonably priced, and a great value for the quality of the accomodations.
Very clean and Friendly
The Alpine Trail Ridge Inn is very clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks to them for all their hard work!
A very nice. clean hotel
We were very pleased with the facilities which were clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. We would stay there again and would add that it is the best of the three motels that we have stayed in there.
CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, WONDERFUL STAFF
High thread count linens, thick towels, comfortable beds, a wonderful staff, and VERY CLEAN ROOMS. This hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. A well maintained Motor Court, it was a great place to unwind after a long day on the trails. We particularly enjoyed the Cider available in the lobby. The staff was very helpful in making our trip a success. GOOD JOB! We'll be back.
The breakfast at the Sundeck restaurant next door was a delightful bargain and prepared perfectly.
We stayed two nights while visiting RMNP. The Inn is a small well maintained, older facility. The west side location was great when traffic from the park was backed up getting into Estes Park. Rooms are very clean, view from a balcony room was great. Staff was very friendly. Fuel and groceries are just across highway. They are very serious about their non smoking policy which we liked very much.
We have stayed at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn for several years. They have continued to upgrade the units including adding air conditioning.
It is located in an excellent location just west of town. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoy staying here.
Loved the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn
My Husband, myself, Son & his Wife and 2 kids stayed in the kitchen unit @ the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn and had a wonderful experience. We had a wondeful view of the Mountains and the rooms were just wonderful. They are not elegant by all means but very clean and comfortable, they had all the amenities of home. The price was very affordable and they were very acomodating. I would highly recommend staying there to anybody that asked. I have been to Estes Park several times and this is by far the best place we have stayed for the money we paid. (Roomy, Comfortable, Clean and very Cozy.)

There's tons more, plus trees to ID. My favorite are aspen and lodgepole pine. They are doing better this year, I'm told, at least on the eastern front. The pine bark beetle seems to have been slowed by rain. It's been a great experience for the taxonomist in me.
... in the form of some kids (probably college age) at the next table. Two of the party were being regaled by the third with a detailed catalog of what he claimed were the five most dangerous insects on earth. He included the biology, geography, and disgustingology of the consequences of being bitten by each one of the five. At one point he realized we were listening and started to apologize, at which point I mentioned that ...
... at he needed to purchase peanuts for the chipmunks (that btw NEVER showed up for treats). There was no campfire, since we were packed in like truckers at a truck stop and the rear end of the RV was nearly touching the picnic table and flames just seem dangerous.
We slept good (paved parking makes for a level RV and guess what? When the RV is level and plugged in the fridge gets cold!!!)
... mountains even though the coldest it ever got was 18C and the mountain side was filled with dagger like green trees. At the top we saw 3 male elk right next to the road grazing. The way back down was via an actual road so slightly less terrifying but views still amazing. Came back to our temporary little home and had another BBQ. Tomorrow, we leave for Arches National ...
We stopped at a shopping centre in Lone Tree. This is a lovely centre, with stone and timber being widely used throughout. There are a few well-placed open fireplaces, which is an unusual feature within a shopping centre, but the affect is wonderful. We went outside, where there is a pool of running water over a lovely pink stone paved area. A bald eagle statue on one side, and quotes from several people. We walked around to the other side, ...
