We spent 4 days at the Brynwood Motel and could look out at the mountains every morning thru our front window. We chose the extra large room for the 3 of us and it was quite comfortable. With the kitchen supplies, we ate some of our meals there. We had problems with the coffee maker but immediately were supplied a new one. The help was great and our room was always well attended to. I certainly would go back there on my next trip to Estes Park, maybe try a cabin next time. It is on the “quiet” side of the city.

Great location and accommodations for a family trip to Rocky Mountain National Park
We recently stayed in one of the cabins on a family vacation with our pre-teen children during our recent trip to Estes Park and Rocky National Park. The cabin was clean, unique, charming and contained everything we needed for our stay. It was rustic, yet had all of the modern conveniences desired by “non-campers.” The private hot tub was perfect after a day of hiking. Convenient location and helpful, accommodating staff.
