Positive Reviews

Reasonably priced accommodation in Lake Estes

Guests staying in this property were impressed at the affordability that it offered. They stated that this was very recommendable for those who were in a tight budget. The property was very reasonably priced for such a busy touristic town.

Hospitable owner offers excellent service

The property owner was praised by many guests for his excellent hospitality. He was friendly and was very good in providing recommendations on places to eat at or visit. Guests felt that he really cared and was very efficient.

Spotlessly clean rooms!

Rooms are spotless clean from the bed area to the very bathrooms. Although they are not renovated, the rooms are free of grime and dirt from their previous occupants. Many guests also appreciated the beautiful photos of nature hanging on the walls in each room.

Negative Reviews

Missing in-room amenities

Previous guests were frustrated that there were a lot of appliances and amenities not included in the rooms. There were no microwaves and coffee makers for those who wanted to prepare their own meals. Others were disappointed that there were no storage, hairdryer, and dresser.

Tiny, cramped units

Guests who were looking for comfortable accommodations based on room size were totally disappointed after staying here. Rooms were cramped and small, thus, walking inside the rooms was a challenge. Most of the quarters here were very basic and uninspiring.

Breakfast is offered late

The complimentary breakfast starts only at half past seven in the morning, which is pretty late for guests who needed to leave the property early. No packed breakfast is provided, and some guests have to wait just to enjoy the complimentary morning meal.
