Whether you’re visiting Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer to see it’s breathtaking lakes and waterfalls, the fall to catch the aspens changing colors and the elk bugling, or the winter to snowshoe through a winter wonderland, the closest lodging to the park’s East Entrance is in Estes Park, Colo.

Stay at the Quality Inn Near Rocky Mountain National Park that’s just one mile from downtown Estes Park. You’ll be close enough to pop into town for dinner and shopping, but far enough away that parking won’t cause a headache.

Start the day with a complimentary hot breakfast to fuel you up for all the activities. It’s just a 4.5-mile drive to the park’s Beaver Meadows entrance, and you’ll be on your way to endless adventures including the iconic Trail Ridge Road. It’s the highest paved through-road in Colorado at 12,126 feet. Or, head south on Hwy. 7 just 13 miles to reach the Longs Peak Trailhead to summit one of Colorado’s tallest peaks. This climb is technical and is not suggested for those who haven’t trained extensively. Be sure to start before dawn to avoid afternoon thunderstorms. If you’re not up for a technical climb, hike to Chasm Lake, which is accessed by the same trailhead and is also breathtaking.

After a day spent exploring, head back to the hotel where you can share all your photos with friends using the Quality Inn’s high-speed internet. Before heading to town for dinner, take a dip in the seasonal outdoor pool or soak your sore muscles in the outdoor hot tub. Don’t be surprised if you run into a herd of elk in the parking lot on your way to your car. Missed snapping a photo? Head to the in-lobby gift shop to grab a postcard to catalogue the memory instead.

Family owned and operated since 1972, you’ll feel right at home at this property that’s a three-time Ring of Honor Winner through Choice Hotels International and has a AAA 3 Diamond rating.
