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.)

... least it was small. We then headed to the hire place for our traction devices and drove into RMNP. What a difference a night can make, the drive up was vastly different to yesterday as the snow became deeper and deeper as we ascended. It was quite stunning and we were in awe of the scenery. The conditions were very snowy as we drove, we could see elk on the way, eating and unfazed by the cold.
We arrived at bear lake, shoe spiked up and put on all the ...

So, I was not horrified, as I might have been to see our back-in, gravel, parking spot, that had 2 feet to either side where our neighbors camped! I actually was happy to get out and explore the town, which we were smack dab in the middle of! Really. Like just off the road.

Next was the Alpine Visitor Center for lunch and passport stamps. It is the highest and most remote in all the National Park Service. Very cold and windy and packed with tourists but with incredible views over the meadows and mountain peaks. There was a heard of Elk grazing about 100m above the Visitor Center which was pretty cool. We had lunch at the cafeteria there and then continued down the road.

Yesterday I drove down from Cheyenne to Estes Park in Colorado. Estes Park is the entry point to the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). I intend to go there tomorrow and drive along the famous Trail Ridge Road to Timber Creek, where there's a camp based on first-come first-served. The highest point on the road is 12,183 feet (or 3713 meters) above sea level. So, we are high up in the mountains, and it gets cold at night. ...

So we head on to other elk spots and silly us we obeyed the rules. All of my photos are taken from the car, out the sunroof or along the roadside in areas you are allowed to be. I am using a 42x zoom so I am no where near the animals. We gave up about 8:30 and headed back to the hotel ...
