I am visiting Denver this weekend but will also have a couple of days to kill, so am thinking about going to RMNP. So, I am wanting to stay somewhere closer to the park, whether it is estes or wherever. NOw, I have noticed that estes is quite an expensive little place to stay! Just wondering if anyone knows of anyplace inexpensive in or around estes, a motel or cabins or anything.... would like to stay below $70 a night (go ahead and laugh!) Dont' know if this is possible or not. Just wanted to be a little closer to the park than denver since i won't haVe much time there.

Any suggestions would be helpful! thanks!

Your best bet might be Travelodge or Super 8, but probably will still be over $70. My suggestion would be to look in Loveland. It is closer than Denver to RMNP, and hotels are cheaper. The drive through the canyon to Estes Park is very pretty too.

There's always camping . Even that though (in the park) is $20/night.

Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the few places I have ever visited where I wished I had brought my own air. The place is spectacular but the alitude can make you really sick. The cure is more oxygen.

If you need more air (and please don't blast me for this!)
Get the POD....it's made in Breckenridge and sold in the pharmacy/vitamin part of Walmart!
It is the size of a small small can of hairspray and has 40 to 50 breaths.
It is for hiking/biking, etc and gives you the "boost" and.......helps with altitude!!!!! Also very good for hangovers but, I digress!!!
POD stands for....personal oxygen device and,..it weighs nothing!!!!!!
I think everyone should get one just because!!
It is as small or smaller than your typical bottle of water and is super lightweight!! When I checkout in Walmart, the cashier often says "is there anything in this?"......It's 95% oxygen and 5% nitrogen.
When my DH takes a few breaths (for whatever reason) he's up at night! DO IT!!! It certainly can't hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!JMO!!!!!!!!!!

There are some pretty nice cabins at the KOA just east of town, we stayed
there and the price was below $70 in the middle of the summer. You will
need your own bed linens, and there is no bathroom in the cabin, but well worth it for the price. My answer is probably too late for you now, I know,
but might help someone else.
