Winter break getaway

The Historic Crags Lodge was a lovely place to spend a night away. The building itself is beautiful and set up in the mountains of Estes. The room was comfortable and I really appreciated the well-stocked kitchenette. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Memorable Experience

Historic Crags Lodge was a very special experience. So much memorabilia and such a fantastic view. Our accommodations met all our expectations of cleanliness and comfort. Our only disappointment was that we had to go into town for breakfast and we would have so enjoyed having breakfast in the dining room right on the premises.

It's a little bit of a drive but the Dunnsraven Inn in Estes Park was a wonderful experience. We would definitely return there. The walls were plastered with dollar bills that had been uniquely signed by various past guests. Really fun and memorable. Good food too.

Ok, but I would try another hotel next time.

This hotel was very comfortable and clean. The decor was disappointing; I think they need to improve the lighting and pictures. Rocky Mountain National Park is so scenic, but the pictures and lamps in the room looked like garage sale finds. If the hotel is hosting a function, I would suggest eating elsewhere. There was a wedding the night we visited, but the restaurant served us anyway. It was somewhat disappointing and quite expensive. I'm sure it would have been nice if they weren't busy serving a wedding. The staff was very kind and helpful.

Beds

We asked and received a one room bedroom with a couch that converted to a bed. The queen bed was fairly comfortable but the couch bed was springy and lumpy and not conducive to sleep. The personnel and surroundings were very nice and the food was tasty and they could adhere to the gluten free diet we requested. The location is somewhat difficult to find at first but is very scenic.

Terra Hotel

The Hotel is beautiful and located between Jackson Hole and Teton National park. Yellowstone is a bit further up the road from here but still accessible. My only complaint was the comfort of the recycled beds. I appreciate the reclaiming of springs to make the beds but two nights and we were ready to run out of the Terra Hotel. Our bodies hurt after sleeping on these beds and we tossed and turned all night. Other than feeling tire the next day we loved the way the hotel looked.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Do not go to the Mangy Moose for dinner. If you want to go for a beer that's fine but the food there was marginal at best even though Giada recommended it. I believe she either knew the owner and was trying to drum up business for him or her taste buds have gone to seed. I had a Buffalo burger that would have felt more at home in a hockey rink. Tough and dry.

Excellent value for such luxury!!!

I would have stayed for a whole week if I could! It was such a wonderful room. Very comfortable and clean and my night there was very relaxing! The staff was very nice and efficient. Check-in was very quick and painless. I would certainly stay here again and will recommend The Crags to anyone passing through Colorado. Wonderful stay and such an amazing price!

Short getaway with my boyfriend

We live in Denver and just wanted to get away for the night and snow shoe in rocky national park. The hotel was GREAT! We drank wine by the fireplace and Christmas tree. The staff was so kind. The view from our hotel room was spectacular. Definitely will go back.
