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

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 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.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The room was clean and fresh, but very small and cramped. There was no place to put toiletries and our travel friend had no hot water in her room. There was no pool or breakfast, though the price did not reflect these missing items. The courtyard would have been very nice if it had been maintained at all. Since this... More

Thank you for writing a review; but sorry to disappoint. It is always helpful to give us the room #'s so we can correct the situation for our guests, especially if your friend said that she did not have hot water because this is an atypical situation for our place. Also, it was a late season, mostly due to weather,... More

Only stayed for one night on way from Denver Airport. Arrived late, after dark, but found room to be very clean, plenty of parking space and a very kind host waiting. So all in all - very nice accomodation. Idaho Springs itself ..... Really do not know what to say here. But would stay again at Columbine Inn, if necessary.
