Peak To Peak Lodge
Travel Blogs from Estes Park
... have been to RMNP twice before in my life. The first time was when my grandparents took my sister and me on a western adventure in a rented RV for 3 incredible weeks in 1988. The second time was when I drove out west with my friend, Dorothy, to move her out to Idaho after college. One memory that is strong about the second trip is that when Dorothy and I made it to the Alpine Center in ’96 we had Tevas on our feet, and (very high-waisted)shorts and ...
... in the US anymore. We have beautiful land and downright UGLY people. I have never experienced this level of disrespect EVER in ANY other country…disrespect for the land (graffiti and trash), for the wildlife (already touched on that one) and for other people. It is such a self indulgent, self serving, self important attitude that disregards any thought for other people who are currently or will be in the future passing that way. Adults are ...
... pulled over on the side. That usually means there is wildlife nearby. I jumped out of the car while Rodney was still figuring out how to park and I ran to the group of people with cameras. There was a momma moose and her baby about to swim in the lake. The little baby took off running as soon as he saw the water and he jumped and played in it. The mom took her time going to join him then spent about 15 minutes wading, blowing ...
... below Bear Lake car park, and catch a shuttle bus back up, however, in a fit of madness I told the kids we would just walk back, which we all found really hard.
On our walk we avoided Bear Lake which was 256 yards from the car. Luce had told Cian it was called Bear Lake as you could always see bears swimming in it! Cian believed her, and was worried all the way around, refusing to go near the lake with any food in case the swimming bears were hungry. Foodless, we approached ...
... drivers keep from driving off the side of the mountain. Then we cross the tree line and there is nothing between us and the sky. I’m driving and I feel like I’m physically lifting up out of my seat, about to fly into the void ahead of me. It takes my breath away. But I have to get my breath back quickly because I need to pay careful attention to the switchbacks. I’m not interested in actually experiencing flying, at least not in my car. We’re Julie and ...

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.
