Four years ago when visiting Manitou Springs, we chose The Cliff House, sight unseen but based on its website and Tripadvisor reviews. We stayed six days and loved it (and wrote the review). When returning to Manitou this month (for four nights), there was not a second of doubt as to where we would stay. Last trip we stayed in... More

Good Day and thank you for your wonderful review. As you mentioned you did see workmen bringing in some new carpet, we are infact in the midst of renovating our bathrooms and trying to update the furnishings in the room. It is a work in progress, as we are only able to do one room at a time with the... More

We had a spacious room on the third floor overlooking the corner near the post office. There was a sitting area, fireplace, desk and very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large, with a wonderful jacuzzi tub. Breakfast in the dining room was quite good and the service was attentive. The location is right next to the downtown area shops and... More

The pictures make this old style hotel look quite nice and inviting, but I was disappointed with our tiny (expensive) room with no view. I also anticipated sitting on the front porch looking out at Pike's Peak, but it was not to be found amidst the street and downtown buildings in front of the hotel. They also tagged on a... More

This is a historic four diamond hotel. The rooms are beautifully restored with modern conveniences. Towel warmer, steam shower, etc. it is hard to get a king bed due to the size of the rooms. Being a four diamond, it is not cheap and they charge resort fees and parking fees. An excellent breakfast does come with the room.

This is probably the nicest hotel in Manitou Springs. I would say it's a 4 star hotel. We went for our anniversary and it was very cute. It's very romantic and the garden out front was beautiful. Within a few minutes walking distance of the main street in Manitou Springs. The jetted bathtub was great and the AC kept the... More

We spent just one night at The Cliff House, to break our journey from Santa Fe to Denver Airport. It turned out to be a night to remember. On arrival we were informed that our standard room had been upgraded to the Thomas Edison Suite, an elegant room with en suite bathroom on the top floor of this impressive Victorian... More

While enjoying a trip to the shops in Manitou Springs, we stopped for lunch at the Cliff House. The lunch was ordered from a small, but varied assortment of salads and sandwiches. The food was prepared to perfection. We enjoyed it so much that we came back for "3'o'clock" desert. The staff was attentive and made sure we enjoyed our... More

A traditional hotel with loads of history. This was our treat for the last 3 nights of our Colrado holiday. Renovated relatively recently and in excellent decorative order. We would describe it as 4-star with some 5-star features - particularly the restaurant which has a superb menu, quite European in style, uniformed waiters and impeccable service. So good, we ate...

My husband I stayed here for 4 nights in July. We really enjoyed the location and the view. I loved the front porch were you could sit out at anytime and order food or just get a drink or an appetizer, or just relax. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful every time we came down for our car.... More
