Nice hotel close to downtown Estes Park.

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly staff, nice clean room with great views of the mountains. I would recommend this place to others. It has a very inviting and warm atmosphere with a nice resturaunt and bar. The only thing we had trouble with was the water in the shower randomly changing temperature.

Nice lobby, room was okay, bad carpet

  • 3 of 5

This place has a real old, but interesting lobby. After that, it is downhill. Room was okay. Carpet badly stained and in need of replacement. Bathroom had been renovated and was very nice. Parking very limited

Comfortable historic lodge

  • 5 of 5

Unpretentious, friendly, exceptional service, lovely outdoor areas with great views. We had a one bedroom in the annex which had everything we needed. Our stay was much too short and we hope to return!

Photographs well but does not live up to it!

  • 1 of 5

What a disappointment. We could tell when we pulled up it was an aging property in need of a renovation. Our room was under the restaurant. 100 year old ceiling we listened to them move furniture until 11:30 pm. The second night there was a wedding reception overhead, think high school kids jumping in the bleachers loud. They have shoe horned too much furniture into room, one of those where you have to move something to do something. The bathroom had a lovely rose color laminate and the bath/shower had mix match faucets and controls. You could not maintain the water temp in the shower and it sounded like a cross between the space shuttle taking off and a cat being boiled alive every time you flushed the toilet. The restaurant and bar have been outsourced so you could not charge to your room. The bar had about 10 bottles of liquor to choose from, most were obscure, except for Jack and Crown. We went to the liquor store and tried to enjoy a glass of wine by the outdoor fire pit which did not work. This is a truly outdated property that COULD be fantastic. Judging by the low end fixtures and patch jobs, this place appears to be broke and cannot afford to update. Truthfully disappointed. Although, we were offered a $25 coupon to the BBQ restaurant down the road??? Why not to their bar or restaurant? Bizarre, I will not go back, I cannot recommend it. Oh yeah they still use the ridiculous brass keys, what a pain.

This place is gorgeous just like the pictures with such a homey warm feel and extremely kind staff.

  • 5 of 5

I was worried because the price was so great (thought maybe some pictures looked nicer than they would be in person) but it was gorgeous. I got the smallest room available and it's perfect if you want something nice and comfortable and relaxing but not extravagant either. Much more beautiful and nice than any chain hotel room but the room was small like a cute little cottage room. Plenty of room, kitchen with stove, kettle, coffeemaker, toaster, microwave, cookwear, and plates and silverware, good sized bathroom with heat lamps in the ceiling (heaven), good sized couch big bed tv and a door to a gorgeous stone balcony. Plenty of room and even more amenities than a hotel room, just not extra blank floor space, so you get an amazing price. The bigger rooms would have more space if you need it! Fireplaces, tons of places to sit, never crowded, so friendly and peaceful and beautiful views out every window, and quiet people in general (although no one minded us loud folks). Just a great place. It's the first place I ever stayed in Estes Park and I'd never stay anywhere else. Was nicer to stay there than a shiny fancy expensive hotel room. If I was given $500 extra to spend on my vacation, I'd still stay at Crags Lodge and spend it on something else. Or stay longer. Wonderful place to stay!

Historic, classic mountain lodge

  • 5 of 5

If you love old, rustic and don't need everything granite and tile, check out this historic lodge.

Winter visit ..... great place to return to after a day of hiking and snowshoeing!

A couple big roaring fires, hot chocolate, hot tub, great views of Estes Park. Wonderful place to be cozy and hear the wind howling outside.

Excellent meal in the casual dining room. Games and books and videos available in the library.

Lovely front desk lady.

This is a lucky find!
