Denver is only about an hour and a half southeast of Estes Park, so you can always head to the big city if you get tired of small-town charm.

There's shopping, dining, music, entertainment, and plenty of other attractions to explore.

When you want to thoroughly unwind during your vacation, Estes Park offers the perfect solution. Start packing your bags and writing down your wish list of activities today.

Estes Park offers year-round attractions for singles, couples, and families. The summer months offer the best weather and the most opportunities to explore the great outdoors. You won't have to bundle up before you head out from your hotel to explore the town and the surrounding environs. Plus, low humidity levels make even the warmest months quite tolerable.

Hotel prices climb through the summer months, then start to taper off again when kids go back to school, and the mercury starts to drop.

Best Luxury Hotel Options in Estes Park, Colorado

4 Star Average Prices: $225.43

Although Estes Park doesn't offer as much luxury as some of the more popular skiing towns in Colorado, you can still find some upscale options within the city limits. Try the Comfort Inn, for instance. It's designed specifically for leisure, so feel free to leave your laptops and Bluetooth devices at home and fully acclimate to the slow, peaceful pace in the mountains. The Comfort Inn is close to several local favorite attractions, including the Sombrero Ranch and the Rooftop Rodeo. You'll get free Wi-Fi throughout the establishment as well as an exercise room, business center, seasonal outdoor pool, and free coffee in the lobby.

Every morning, head down to the dining room to enjoy a free hot breakfast. Fill up on pancakes, waffles, muffins, pastries, cereal, yogurt, and other delicacies. You'll access your room through interior corridors, which makes your travel safer, and this hotel has won several awards, including the Choice Gold Hospitality Award. There's an indoor whirlpool if you feel like taking a soak during any season, and rooms feature plush pillow top mattresses.

You'll also find luxury at The Stanley Hotel, which is slightly more expensive. You might recognize it as the venue that inspired the Overlook Hotel in the film version of Stephen King's "The Shining." In fact, the gift shop sells memorabilia like coffee mugs with the word Redrum scrawled across the side and copies of the film and book. However, this hotel isn't just for book lovers and film buffs. It's a beautiful example of architecture that seems to arise naturally from the mountains around it. Plus, it has a long-standing reputation for being haunted.

Rooms and suites come with comfortable beds and seating areas as well as 42-inch flat-screen televisions, pillow top mattresses, and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel isn't air-conditioned, but you can always open up your window to let in the fresh mountain breeze. There are four restaurants in the hotel, including the famed Whiskey Bar, and you won't want to miss the fantastic sculpture garden.

4 Star Hotel Prices in Estes Park

Best Affordable Hotel Options in Estes Park, Colorado

3 Star Average Prices: $153.24

When you want to visit Estes Park without blowing your vacation budget on a place to sleep, the Estes Rodeway Inn will fit the bill. It's a clean, comfortable hotel that doesn't offer much in the way of aesthetic appeal, but will nevertheless introduce you to an authentic Colorado mountain-town adventure. Plus, you're likely to see local wildlife wandering the grounds, from deer to elk.

There's an indoor heated pool if you want to take a dip between excursions in the mountains or if you want to lounge poolside with the latest beach read. You'll find lobbies on both floors of the hotel, which provide convenient gathering spaces when you're traveling with a large group and need to plan the day's itinerary. Guest rooms are slightly dated with floral-patterned bedding, floral artwork on the walls, and CRT televisions, but the windows offer breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

The 4 Seasons Inn offers another budget-friendly hotel option. It's an adults-only hotel, which means you can relax in peace and quiet if you're looking for a romantic getaway or a fun destination with friends. You might also prefer this hotel if you're traveling alone for reflection or work. Its position on the Fall River means you're never far from the water, though there's also an outdoor spa tub for those who prefer to soak in hot water. You can use the outdoor grill to prepare your own meals or organize a picnic for your party.

Each of the guest rooms at the 4 Seasons Inn comes with a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. You'll get a flat-screen television, free wireless internet access, and cable channels including HBO. Three rooms have private outdoor Jacuzzis if you want to ease tired and sore muscles without an audience. The log cabin-style aesthetic will take you back in time, and the indoor decor is simple but pleasant.

Best Discount Hotel Options in Estes Park, Colorado

Most of the hotels in Estes Park are small, privately-owned establishments, so you might not see as many discount opportunities as you would with chain venues. Individual hotels often offer early-bird discounts that allow you to book at lower rates if you reserve rooms early. Additionally, hotels like The Stanley offer packages that provide you with extra perks and treats, such as free entrance to local venues or preferred status in room selection.

Best Value Hotel Options in Estes Park, Colorado

If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, you might want to book rooms at Murphy's Resort at Estes Park. It sits on 6.5 acres and offers plenty of family-friendly adventures, from horseback riding and white-water rafting to art classes and snowshoeing. Grab a beer and a snack at the on-site lounge or relax in your modern, lake-view room, which is decorated in soothing pastels and features upscale linens.

There's also the Hotel Estes, which features a log home-style aesthetic and a rustic, out-of-the-way location that will stimulate all your senses. The rooms and suites are simple but tasteful, with complimentary bottled water, coffee makers, refrigerators, microwaves, and flat-screen televisions. You can take a dip in the seasonal outdoor pool, which features water slides for added fun. Plus, if you enjoy exercise and wildlife, don't miss the chance to hike around the hotel, exploring the trails and viewing local fauna through your binoculars. After a day of exploring, return to the lobby for snacks and beverages.

Where to See Wildlife in Estes Park, Colorado

While you might not see many wild animals if you stick to Estes Park's quaint downtown streets, you won't have to venture far to see some stunning local fauna. At the Rocky Mountain National Park, for instance, you might encounter eagles, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, and chipmunks. Always clear your campsite and close all the windows on your car doors since black bears roam this area.

At Big Bear Lake, you're sure to encounter birds, small rodents, and other wildlife. This area is particularly known for black bears and mountain lions, so steer clear of the larger specimens as you hike around the lake. Keep in mind that feeding or interacting with the animals is against the law, so protect yourself as well as your criminal record.

You might also want to visit Sprague Lake if you're interested in wildlife sightings. Moose, deer, mountain lion, boreal toad, wood frog, and Canada lynx often make their homes here. Of course, you should also bring your fishing pole if you're interested in catching fish — especially trout. The lake is so shallow that you can walk several hundred feet into the water with your fly-fishing rod.

If you're in the mood for nature and quietude, you can't go wrong with a vacation in Estes Park. It's a scenic and relaxing destination that never disappoints, and since it's attractive all year-round, you can plan a trip no matter the season. Just choose one of the hotels recommended above and start packing your luggage.
