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.

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

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.

This motel is a nice place to stay if you are passing through Idaho Springs. It is within walking distance of downtown. The rooms are a little old and therefore the plug situation is not great. We have taken to traveling with a plug strip these days. The owners are very nice and it is apparent that they are trying... More

I've stayed at the Columbine Inn several times over the past 10 years, but I don't think I've ever written a review. This is a very nice locally owned motel in Idaho Springs, it is clean, the rooms have nice touches, slightly dated because of it's age, but the owner, Sam, does a great job keeping it up. This would... More
