Half zeven is het nu en we zitten al bijna twee uur op onze hotelkamer, een beetje tv kijken, een beetje internetten, een beetje rommelen met ipod-software de tijd komen we zo wel door. Dit is pas de eerste keer dat we last hebben van het weer. Vanochtend zijn we niet zo vroeg opgestaan en gaan ontbijten. De laatste paar dagen willen we dat wat …
Het einde van de reis komt in zicht. Vandaag zijn we een heel stuk zuidelijker gereden (700km). De langste reisdag begon om 0900 uur en na een voorspoedige reis zaten we rond zessen in ons hotel. Heel wat kilometers verderop in Estes Park, een toeristenplaats bij het Rocky Mountain National Park.
De route vandaag ging via South Dakota, …
Before Michelle and Brooks woke, I took a bike ride down to downtown Hays. I would describe it as the typical small town America downtown. Nothing remarkable, but you can tell they put some work into it to keep it looking nice. We left Hays a bit earlier than I planned, which is always nice. The drive was even more of nothingness than it was …
... built in 1955, Colleen climbed the Iast few hundred feet top 10, 400ft. and later meet Tony below at our cabin where we enjoyed our afternoon tea, of Cherry Pie and Flan.
Then in the late arvo we went for a walk through Town which had quietened down as it had been the Labour Day long weekend. We brought back a nice Pizza from Bob & Tony's. To finish the day we had a walk up the stairs to enjoy the hot tub
... place if you love hiking. Ken and I did some hiking. Melissa and the rest did more. As Melissa, said if she was to do anymore hiking she would have to buy hiking equipment. Some of the trials were pretty rugged and tennis shoes was not enough. Some of the trials still had snow on them. And hiking at the higher elevation was challenging. All of us at different times, suffered from the high altitude with either ...

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.
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.
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.)
