We were on a cycling tour and this was our last stop before heading home, was pleasantly surprised by a wonder place to stay. Clean rooms, wonderful owners would stay here again if we came here again.

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

We arrived at the Columbine Inn late afternoon, with overcast skies. The sign was barely visible through the tree limbs, the parking lot has plenty of wear, and the grounds were not especially inviting. However, the room we stayed was clean and comfortable, there was free wifi, coffee/fridge/microwave in the room. A good value and great launching point for Mt... More

Columbine is a small motel right on the main street in Idaho Springs. We found the place a bit run down. The beds, though, are comfortable and plush. The rooms were quiet. The location of the motel is perhaps its best asset.

Sam (the owner) has a super accent and he is very welcoming. Convenient location & easy to find. Best rates. There is a full parking lot with a cute little yard area and a BBQ grill on a patio. The room was great with WIFI, kitchenette, Microwave etc ... and very well decorated. I had a pleasant, comfortable and quiet... More

If you have to stay in Idaho Springs, this is a good choice -- one of the lowest prices in I.S. Clean, comfy room, well-maintained, WiFi, refrigerator, and anything a traveler not interested in spending time actually in a motel needs. Trailers across the street, but who cares? If you want a mountain resort to hang around in, go somewhere... More

Sam (the owner) was pleasant upon our arrival, but he neglected to let us know where the room was located and that check-out was at 10am instead of the customary 11am. I thought the bed was way too firm, but my husband loved how hard the king bed was! Cute decor (loved the idea for the fake window in the... More

It's nice for what it is, in a retired iron worker kind of way. Very, very basic. The towels were clean, the sheets were OK, overall the room was decorated nicely or at least not too oppressive. It was a good place to hang my hat in Idaho Springs, which was just what I needed at the time. Out of... More

Made an online reservation at the Columbine, complete with room number and confirmation email. When we arrived an hour later it looked nice enough, but the guy told us that he didn't have time to look at online reservations, and that there were no rooms. He gave us a refund. He was fairly rude and completely unapologetic. I wouldn't trust... More

Sincere apologies,again, for this singular and unfortunate snafu in online reservation 1-hour before arrival. We do honor online reservations. Confirmation was automatic response by booking website. However, review may be misleading since it does not mention unusual circumstances: major snowstorm, lines down, stranded travelers at our doorstep; yet was able to get through reservation line on cell phone and by...
