This is by far my favorite stay on any trip! As a huge period-drama/history nerd, I initially chose the Cliff House for my husband and my stay in Manitou because of the rich history and decor of the premises, and I was not disappointed! I felt like a character straight out of Downton Abbey. The building and its restoration work... More

This was our 3rd stay over the last 3 years. We always stay in the suites. Over most recent stay we stayed in the Woolworth suite, our second time in this room. The room is very comfortable and quiet. We had a view of the incline and the amenities were well stocked. Yes, the heated toilet seat and towel warmer... More

We stayed at The Cliff House on the last night of a 10-day Colorado vacation. We had been staying in economy-style hotels, so it was nice to splurge a bit on our last 2 nights at this boutique style hotel. Tip: Ask the front desk for a map of the town that tells you where all the 'springs' are in... More

This hotel is lovely and updated beautifully. The bathrooms are huge- 2 sinks which are a luxury when traveling, and plenty of shelf space. Room was very clean and also large with lots of space. The best part of the room was an abundance of outlets for electronics- more than we've ever seen- so convenient! We loved the hotel- but... More

We were upgraded from our original reservations to the Katherine Hale Suite upon our arrival. Very clean and comfortable with a separate sitting room. The stay includes a breakfast buffet in the dining room which included a delicious apple strudel. Excellent service. Take time to view the historic black and white photos in the hall depicting the history of the... More

I booked the Henry Ford Suite for a three-night stay to relax from a very long road trip. This room is very spacious and nicely decorated appropriate to the theme of the hotel. Many old hotels are dark and dreary, but they've done a nice job with this property. It is light, bright and clean...for the most part. Our room,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review of The Cliff House at Pikes Peak. The carpet issue has been addressed. As for snooty and condescending service we will locate who these servers are and disciplinary action will occur as there is absolutely no excuse for this. In regards to the breakfast offering - we offer... More

We really enjoyed the Cliff House. Everyone did a great job making us feel at home. Beds and rooms were great, and staff was outstanding. We ate at the main dining room for dinner and enjoyed it, and the breakfast buffet that was included, was tasty too! The location made it easy for us to walk all around Manitou Springs... More

My husband and I chose the Cliff House for our anniversary "staycation." We stayed in a junior suite with a fireplace and two-person steam shower. The location and the building are to die for - right in the middle of adorably quirky Manitou and within walking distance to bars, shops, and restaurants. The hotel's veranda is great for relaxing and... More

The cliff house is very homey. Great service, very friendly, they try to accommodate anything you need. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I am use to having a ceiling fan and they brought me a tower fan. They have feather pillows which causes my husband to be stuffy , they brought him polyester filled pillows.
