Peak To Peak Lodge
Historical Traveler Reviews German Gonzalez Rojas Holguin
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.

... br> So we didn't give up. We drove down to Denver and picked our daughter up at the airport. We hadn't seen her since Christmas, and she was a comfort for mom and dad. Sure enough, Brianna wanted to hike as well.
The next hike, all the way to Emerald Lake, brought us out of the montane and up above the treeline. The trail from Bear Lake first leads to bucolic Nymph Lake, full of pond lillies and lake ...
... that just made us not want to do it. We picked out another trail and headed there. We ended up at Sprague Lake and walked some of the trails there. It was gorgeous. We left there and just drove out the road to Bear Lake just to see what all the hoopla was about. Yea... I bet it was pretty amazing. I will have to save it for another time though. We had reservations to rent a RAZR at 1pm and had a pretty good drive to get out to ...

We went back to the hotel and watched the rest of The Shining. I got a bit scared and agitated, but we pushed through it. We spent a bit of time planning the next leg of our trip, and had dinner in the hotel restaurant before an early night. Had a bit of trouble falling asleep again, but no spirit ...

The climbing at "Eldo" feels much like Mt. Arapiles in Australia to us: steep, traditionally protected face climbing. However, the climbing in Eldo is even more cerebral due to its sparse gear placement options--you have to think ahead and be creative.
