Peak To Peak Lodge
Travel Blogs from Estes Park
We waren weer op tijd wakker vandaag. Buiten was het afgekoeld tot een graad of 7 maar de zon scheen om zes uur al weer volop. kolibrie's vliegen hier ook bij de hanging baskets die bij de kamers hangen. Na een ontbijt op onze kamer en het aankleed ritueel zijn we op het gemakje op pad gegaan richting de ingang van RMNP. Al snel zagen we een paar …
Today we hang out in the beautiful little town of Estes Park. The town is located at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The plan today is just to relax, do some shopping and prepare for the race tomorrow.
We head to the high school for package pickup. Les is scheduled to run the half marathon and I am scheduled to run the full marathon. Linda asks what it takes to get one of the nice pink tech shirts given ...
... of us...very cute creatures. Came back to the lodge for lunch and I read in our hammock over the river for an hour. Headed back in to the national park in the afternoon and upon our lodge owner's recommendation drove the 9 mile "Old River Road" up a mountain of over 12,000 ft. This was most definitely the most terrifying drive I've ever done (well, Jake drove but I mean ...
... it all and parked and walked back to the area. At first we were standing in a group along the hill overlooking the field and I had a great vantage point but there was again some ******* family with their rude kids making loud bugling sounds like they were elk incessantly over and over. The mom told them to stop it once but then gave up and it was a free for all with each kid trying to be louder than the last. Do you not recognize there are other people ...

Seth & Chloe began a gecko (as Chloe's souvenir of the trip), and Tom & Linda started on a house number sign. Later in the afternoon, Linda also started a silk painting, which she just couldn't resist (no pun ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Peak To Peak Lodge Estes Park
The Peak to Peak Lodge in Estes Park, Colorado is under new ownership. It is a clean environment. The friendly service was appreciated. Affordable rates for a family of six.
Great Place to Stay
Stayed @ 25th & 26th JUL 2004. Clean and neat place to stay with very helpful management. Not as expensive as other places. Away from the down town push of tourists. Ouaint with flower baskets hanging from the eaves that were attracting birds. Appriciated the small refrigerator and the tips from management on how to bypass the down town area when we were headed to Rocky Mtn. Nat. Park.
Great stay at Peak to Peak!
Thomas and Suzanne made this a terrific stay for our family. From the moment I made the reservations I knew that they had a fine establishment and would treat us professionally and with personal care. We thought the room was very nice. It was clean, big, a great deal for the family. The beds were very comfortable, the best mattresses we had on a long western road trip. The boys enjoyed the pool very much -- it, too, is clean and well kept. The location is excellent, in our opinion, just off the main thoroughfares in Estes Park with easy access to the national park and eating establishments/businesses. We would return, and hope that Thomas and Suzanne have great success with their business. Thanks for making our stay in Estes Park so wonderful.
Nice place to stay
Nice and really clean room and motel with family atmosphere. New owners /from Switzerland/ are doing a good job and brought swiss quality to Estes Park. They are very helpfull and friendly to customers. If we come back to Estes Park, of course we will stay there.
A bit overpriced!!!!
My wife and I stayed at Peak to Peak on July 27th. The room was very neat and the bathroom was very clean, and plenty of towels. The only drawback was that the office opened at 8:00 am and checkout is by 10:00 am. You have to either wait until 8:00 or be back by 10:00 to check out. Since we had early morning plans niether senario worked for us. Overall, the motel was a nice place to stay, although a bit expensive at $99 per night.
New Owners-They've turned it around
The Peak to Peak Lodge is the best deal in Estes Park! They have a new owner and management team. They've cleaned the place up, it was very comfortable and sanitation was immaculate. The motel is dated, probably from the 1960's, but what a bargain. We booked the room, then read the old reviews online. We thought we'd made a terrible mistake, but it was a very pleasant surprise. We accidently left an article of clothing, and Thomas, the owner, returned it to us by mail. What service!! They do not require a minimum stay, which was great for us nearby (Colorado Springs) locals only wanting to stay one night. Next time you're in Estes Park, give the Peak to Peak Lodge your business. Support the small business man!!
New Management = Great Value
NEW MANAGEMENT!!! Peak to Peak has been taken over by new management and the old reviews are now obsolete. Upon arriving, Thomas, the manager, went out of his way to accomodate us and make us feel at home. After talking with him we found out that he took over just a few months ago and has since turned the place around. Large rooms, clean bathrooms, coffeemakers, microwaves, refrigerators, and even some kitchenette rooms. The place was IMMACULATE, and reasonably priced as well. I would HIGHLY recommend staying at Peak to Peak.
Very unfriendly management
We made a reservation for 2 nights (2003). On arrival we wanted to change it to 1 night. After a big argument the manager finally agreed. The manager is extremely unfriendly and has a very hostile attitude to customers; we tried our best to avoid him all day.
The sign outside the motel says: super clean rooms....well the sign is wrong. The bathroom had lots black hairs in it as well as on the wall and on the floor. Rest of the room wasn't that well cleaned either. Room smelled bad.
Terrible experience. Not worth even a glance
Terrible experience with the service. Poor location. Bad management.
Aweful management and behaviour with customer.
The room smelled like a diaper bag. There was visible urine around the edges of the bathroom and mold on the walls. The russian owner's idea of customer service was apparently imported from soviet block eastern europe. We were refused a replacement room and were forced to make alternative arrangements. I would avoid this flea trap of a motel at all costs.
