Stayed here one rainy night. It's a nice, older facility with a lot of character. It's a bit off the beaten path (quieter) but within walking distance of the main drag through Manitou Springs. Staff is very helpful. There's a nice library are off the main lobby. The included hot breakfast is better-than-average. It wasn't cold while we were there,... More

The title is written that way because my husband and I recently moved to Colorado Springs and so far we are SO impressed with the area's restaurants (Denver, Manitou and surrounding areas included). We had also visited over Christmas so we have done a lot of exploring over a couple months. My husband did some research to find a "nice"... More

Recently stayed at the Cliff House for 3 nights. On day 2, hoping to take a nap, we were barraged with hammering and sawing from the room next door. Called front desk and was told the work would stop by 5 pm. It didn't. At 5:30, they said it would be 10 more minutes. It finally stopped at 7 pm.... More

First time in this area. Trip to area was to ride the Cog Rail to Pike's Peak and visit Garden of the Gods. Recommend the rail ride Pike's Peak is awesome and a ride in the Gardens was fun. Loved the quaint town of Manitou Springs enjoyed visiting their shops. But the best part of this stay was Cliff House.... More

My husband and I had a lovely time at the Cliff house. We picked the romance package to celebrate our anniversary and upon our arrival we were upgraded to the the Buffalo Bill Suite. The Suite: I have stayed in many beautiful hotels rooms in my travels, but this suite is unique. The bed was comfortable, the jacuzzi tub was... More

My experience at The Cliff House is best described as 'mixed'. As far as customer service, we had a range of experiences from unhelpful [no eye contact and unwelcoming] to cheerful helpfulness [response to room concerns, directions for sightseeing] and everything in between. I was originally given a very small room with a 'view' of the hotel's infrastructure and a... More

Beautiful old hotel with all modern conveniences. Generous rooms with heated toilet seats! Bar with indoor/outdoor fireplace makes for great socializing environment. Excellent breakfast but best of all was the staff especially Shawn!

I have reviewed this hotel before ... but wanted to weigh in again on my recent experiences. One visit in April 2015 was romantic (an overnight on our way to Taos) and one visit in May was business. Either way, the hotel continues to be top notch. The service, from the moment you arrive, is just over the top great.... More

The Cliff House has some 5-star elements: the staff, in particular, deserve special mention. Every person we encountered over four days was helpful, friendly, efficient - in short, everything a hotel's staff could and should be. The public areas are lovely, with a particularly nice front porch (weather permitting). The room we stayed in, however, was far from 5-star quality.... More

The Cliff House is a fine hotel. From the outside appearance to entering the room you feel history all around you. The service is outstanding and you are made to feel important by each service. The price was a little above what we had been spending but with a good morning breakfast buffet included the overall experience was worth the... More
