Misty Mountain Lodge
Property information by Wcities, Inc
Located just a minute away from downtown Estes Park and two miles from Rocky Mountain National Park, the Misty Mountain Lodge features 19 unique rooms, suites and cabins. Amenities include hot tubs, wireless Internet, gas grills, cable television, and phones. With frequent wildlife visits, the back of the property is mountains with a river right across their lane. This is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the outdoors.
Site was selected for our first family reunion (63 participants). Location and convenience great. Rooms, although advertised as accommodating large numbers were very small and uncomfortable. The bathrooms were not clean, there was no extra toilet paper, no mail service, and no clean towels unless you took your dirty ones to the office (where they were counted) and replaced. There was a sign in the kitchen stating to "help us" and the next guest by leaving the room as you found it. Don't they clean between guests? There were complaints about the amount of trash generated (we ate all meals here since there were six grills and full kitchens in most units). The management knew this was the plan a year beforehand when we had to prepay 1/2 the cost of our rooms. The trash bin was full when we arrived and it was stated they only had one pick up a week which was not for 4 days. We were asked to keep our trash in our rooms so the racoons wouldn't get it. There was no pool, but two hot tubs, one of which was broken. It was a most unpleasant experience. And it was not cheap. We have travelled extensively and have stayed in third world countries for less money and much better service. Cross this one off your list.
Misty Mountain Lodge is in a beautiful town in a good location, and should be able to attract a loyal clientele. My family, however, will never stay there again.
The room claimed to sleep 6 which, technically, it did, but we had to move the dining table and chairs into the kitchen so we could get out the murphy bed which came all the way down to the pull-out sofa. Every time I wanted to get out of bed, I had to choose between crawling over my husband, or stepping on my kids who were sleeping on the sofa bed. There was a queen bed in a seperate bedroom. Incidentally, the beds were so uncomfortable none of us got a good night's sleep. The pillows were rock hard, and the mattresses thin. The sofa bed had an eggshell foam mattress on top that was pretty gross, but without it, the bars were pressing into my two children (who weigh 60 pounds each, I can't imagine how uncomfotable it would have been for an adult).
The bathroom was quite small - pedestal sink with nowhere to store toiletries. In fact, come to think of it, there was no dresser for our clothes either. We lived out of our suitcases (which we had to move every time we wanted to pull out the murphy bed and sofa) for the days we were there.
Management did come to give us extra sheets and towels on the day we arrived, but that was the last helpful thing they did. There were two people managing when we were there, one was nice, the other was unfriendly and unprofessional - it was like "good cop, bad cop." I don't want to have to prepare for a fight when speaking to the management where I am staying and paying.
We were with the family reunion. The management was told there would be 70 of us and we would be grilling for all our meals, staying on-site mostly. They tout themselves as a great place for family reunions, but they are ill equipped to handle such crowds. We had all but a few cabins, but they chose to put those few non-reunion-member cabins right in the middle of our reunion instead of on the outskirts of the property. Piece of advice: if you do chose to stay here, check to see if there are any large groups, and insist that you not be put in the middle of it.
Customer-service-wise, let's think about this: 70 member family reunion, 17 rooms, 4 days: about $8,000. Telling friends and wanting to come back year after year: pricess. Opportunity lost.
PROS: Estes Park itself is beautiful, "lodge" is in a good location
CONS: small bathrooms, uncomfortable beds and pillows, unprofessional staff, no housekeeping
Bottom line: Estes Park has so many beautiful places to stay, choose elsewhere.
The Misty Mtn Lodge is in a great location and their employees had the potential to make a positive impact on our 67 person family reunion group. Unfortunately, we were treated poorly and disrespected.
The cabins are functional but lack cleanliness. Bed linens/coverings need replacing.
The service is primarily self-serve: towel exchange has to occur through a visit to the office. Maid service/cleaning does not occur on a daily basis.
Trash receptacles are too small-overflowing. I recommend additional pick-up, rather than assuming the customer will store trash in their cabins.
You would think that if you had 3/4 of the cabins rented to one group that they would treat you nice. I travel extensively around the world and this was by far one of the worst managed places I have been too.
The trash bin was full when we got there on Friday and then they management had the nerve to tell us that we had too much trash. I have a family of four and we fill up 4 trash barrels a week. They need a bigger trash dumpster and they need to have there trash picked up more than twice a week. They told us we had to keep the trash in our rooms since the dumpster was full so the Raccoons wouldn�t get in to it. How professional is that.
When we got there one of the hot tubs was broke. They claim that it broke a couple of days earlier and it was going to be replaced soon. Don�t lie to me, that thing had been broke all summer. The water in the bottom of it was so green and disgusting, I have seen cleaner backyard ponds.
We were out in the yard having a get together and they rudely told us to be quiet because we were disturbing the other guest. We said ok and packed up and went inside. I asked them though who we disturbed and they said the room over there. I asked did they complain to you about our noise and she said no, then I said how do you know we bothered them since they didn�t complain. Again another lie.
The manger was extremely rude; he was in his late 40's and acted like a kid. Very childish standing guard by the dumpster and confronting guest rudely. It seemed like he wanted to get in a fight with some of my family members instead of trying to make the situation right.
Parking was horrible; they said we had too many cars. They only had around 17 parking spaces and there were around 23 cabins. I think we have a problem with camping. I guess they want some of there guests to walk there. I believe parking is a first come first serve basis, and sorry if some of the guests that were there besides us had to park off site, so did we.
The cabins were outdated and they were decorated very tacky. The fountains were a joke and the grass looked like crap. My friends have cabins that are 60 years old in the mountains and they re in better shape than these that we paid 150 bucks a night for.
My point is don�t waste your money we wasted over $8,000.00 here when I just as soon stayed in my car after the way they treated me.
Had a family reunion at the lodge and had a horrible time. The management was the worst I have ever had. We had 17 of the 20 cabins rented for three days with 67 people. They were unprepared for the reunion that they knew about for months. First they complained about the ammount of cars (Not enough spaces for 20 cabins in the first place). Manager nearly caused a fight over this. Brought out the contract to shove in someones face. Second the ammount of garbage we produced (Bin was full on Friday when we arrived). Third the management was rude because we used their onsite BBQ, chairs, and tables to cook for the 67 paying guests. The rooms were in need of repair. Our fridge, bathroom window, towel bar, and screen door were broken. Don't waste your money on poor service and lousy cabins, go to one of the many other hotels in Estes.
This is a nice location- easy walking distance from all the shops on the main drag. You have limited kitchenware and a full kitchen. We have never had any problems with it although it is a little "self serve". No daily housekeeping and you go to the office to change out your towels. The managers on property are friendly and there is space on property to sit outside and grill. We have had good luck with wildlife on this property even though it is on a well traveled street. We have seen a bear, baby and adult elk and lots of raccoons.
