These rustic cabins are small but cozy. The room was very clean, and I enjoyed the Indian/kokopelli motif. The staff was very gracious to us. We were able to stay within our budget of $50-70 due to seasonal discounts. There was no hairdryer or coffee pot, but they did have a fridge and microwave. They didn't charge us extra for... More

We were at the Lodge on Feb 7-9 , the Lodge was exactly as expected, we had cabin #27 . The staff went above and beyond in service. We had a very late check in and they waited up for us. The only minor point, no shampoo, but not an issue since we had brought some. The fireplace was great... More

We stayed at The El Colorado Lodge this past weekend and enjoyed it as usual. my mother from North Dakota and my family stayed in cabin 25 and could not have been more pleased. We had requested extra blankets and pillows and all was waiting for us already in the cabin. It was a extremely cold outside but stayed toasty... More

El Colorado Lodge in Manitou Springs, Colorado has small southwestern-themed cabins. We liked having the privacy--no noise, no footsteps in the hall, etc.--of being in a cabin and being able to pull up right next to our door. Our cabin had a bit of an odd layout, entering into the largest bedroom, then through a very small hallway kitchenette, and... More

Quaint and charming cabins. Very comfortable for two nights before a two day hike up to Pikes Peak. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, looking after our baggage while we were on the hike.

Hands down the best part of this lodge is the friendliness of the staff. The number of staff is quite small, but each member is extremely nice and friendly. They bent backwards for us when we needed, and it made our stay much more enjoyable. The cabin that we stayed in was quite nice, but some of the smaller, cheaper... More

Been to Manitou Springs before, we like to stay there on the weekends of the Buses on the Brewery (VW Bus rally at Bristol Brewery in Colorado Springs), and we do a weekend road trip around the state. We've driven by El Colorado before and finally got a cabin (in the summer it tends to fill up completely). This is... More

We stayed in July. The hotel room was clean, the pool was great. Not sure why the last review commented on the pool, both the kids and I used the pool and it was fine. The bathroom in our room was very small. The TV was an old, small tv but we weren't in the room much so that didn't... More

When looking for a place to stay with our three kids in Manitou, we had two requirements - a pool and wifi. Turns out neither panned out here. Once we arrived we asked about the wifi. "Well, you sort of have to be in the office or near the pool because the signal won't reach into the cabins." So, for... More

We provide internet cables in all cabins for internet access. We advertise internet service not wifi. Wifi may be accessed in our office, front porch and by the pool but not in the cabins due to the steel mesh & concrete blocks used to build these cabins (an excellent sound barrier). Colorado & Manitou Springs is known for our high... More
