Had everything you need in a place to stay for the night. Front desk was nice and helpful with questions. WiFi was great, bed super comfortable and had a little kitchen too. Probably had the most pillows I've ever seen on a bed but was great to be able to pick which one suited me.

Super nice people that run the hotel. Very homey. Hard to believe it is in the middle of town they are so well hidden by the nesting of the trees surrounding the place. My dates got mixed up and they were super nice on making sure I had a room on my way back home. I definitely will be staying... More

This motel was disappointing. We arrived late evening and upon check in the front desk clerk asked us how many beds we needed one or two. We stated whatever was cheapest and his remark was the two queen beds but if you use both than there will be an additional charge. I paid for the room and whatever was in... More

Guests arrived late, only 2 rooms left with 2-queen size beds in each. Asked for the "cheapest rate" so were given a "discount" for using 1 bed. (We do give discounts for multiple-day stays and repeat guests and random discounts such as this one). Also checked the faucets after reading this review and they are not switched (?)

Not much to choose from in Idaho Springs. Property was clean and quite. Hotel desk/window did not open until 3 PM. We got to there at 2PM (had reservations) and a sign indicated CLOSED/NO VACANCY, a little worried at this point. A not so friendly lady saw us standing around in the parking lot and finally advised us of the... More

First of all, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am confused about the "not so friendly lady" in the parking lot, because that definitely does not describe my wife. She is an educator, and extremely friendly. Also, just for future reference, if our rooms are ready earlier, for example by 2PM, we often let our... More

Large room, double sink bathroom with separate shower/toilet area. The largest availablity of outlets, mirrors & lightening I have ever seen in a motel room! Very cheerful innkeeper! Soft beds. Close to town.

Traveling from Iowa to Vegas got to Denver tried to find hotel that would allow pets at last minute before hitting mountains none would this hotel didn't have any pet rooms but made exception for us. The room was very nice and quiet. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for rest before hitting mountains.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next visit. That is why Idaho Springs is called "Gateway to the Rockies' since many travelers stop by our small mountain town before traveling into the heart of our mountains. Cheers! Sam Salter, Owner More

I stayed here for one night just to explore the area. Our room (#21) was decorated with a cabin theme that I personally really liked. The room was tiny but we didn't spend much time in it. If you are traveling through the area, I would recommend staying here. Great little place for the price and everyone in town is... More

We stayed here one night but our group required two rooms. The rooms were very clean, quite comfortable and had lots of hot water. The motel was very quiet and well lit at night. The hosts were very accommodating and even allowed us to check in a bit early, which we greatly appreciated. The beds were comfortable and the a/c... More

We wanted a location that was central to all the places we wanted to visit this time in Colorado. I've been to Colorado many, many times, but this is the first time I stayed in Idaho Springs. Found Columbine Inn through Trip Advisor, called & talked to Sam the owner and got ourselves set up for a couple of nights.... More

We do not have a pool since the weather up here in the mountains is so unpredictable, but if you are returning next year, ask me about the new 2-bedroom/loft cabin with a private outdoor hot tub that should be completed by then. Very glad you had an enjoyable stay with your family. Cheers! Sam, Owner More

We booked online, paid through pay pal, arrived late and we were VERY pleased with the quality of the room, the grounds and the owners! The kitchenette is well appointed and the bathroom was clean and comfortable. We loved the deck and grassy courtyard just outside our door.
