I wrote great reviews on this place a few years ago (2008). The last time we stayed there it had slipped big-time. When Jennifer left it totally changed. Sad to see it go down the toilet so quickly. I wonder if it is still open?

Travelocity booked a room for me on 9/26, I arrived on 9/29 and found a sign on the door that they had closed for remodeling on 9/13/12. Best that Travelocity could do for me was assure me that they wouldn't charge me for the room I didn't get - and that was after 25 minutes of hold... Place looked like... More

The pictures on the website are very misleading. The lobby was cluttered with paper and old furniture. The room was dirty and smelled bad. Several of the rooms didn't even have door knobs.The pool was empty. We checked in and checked right back out again!

We stayed here a few times in 2011 for one nighters as well as a week long stay. We primarily selected the property because it is pet friendly, there's a nice park right across the street, and it's in Manitou Springs. We love the location of the park for our dog walks. They even provide doggie bags along the way.... More

My wife and I stayed there for about 3 hours until we overheard people talking about bed bugs. We went in the room and looked at the 50 year old mattress and saw bed bugs crawling everywhere. This place is a rip off! Poor management and nasty rooms...we ended up staying at the days inn around the corner which is... More

I had reservations for a 10 day stay to visit family. The room was spacious, but had no soap, ran out of toilet paper in 2 days, went to office 2 different days to get some, was told that someone was 'out getting some now'. I finally bought my own. No maid service, requested a change of towels, never happened.... More

Carpets were stained; no shampoo; no maid service; had to ask for fresh towels; seedy characters actually LIVING there as though it was an apartment complex; guys wandering around... More

Stayed here last night b/c of so many positive reviews. Think they were rigged. No soap, no shampoo, and definitely no continental breakfast. The place is ancient and underwired--it could not handle a hair dryer, curling iron, and air conditioner being on at same time. It could not handle the tv and air being on at same time. The breakers... More

Stayed for one night because of the good reviews and we only wanted a simple place to sleep and did not need amenities of higher priced hotels. First off I will list the good: Low rates, very friendly reception office personel, the rooms are very clean and it was quiet. The bad: It is very old so although they do... More

We came for a week and have been here for about 5 months. There has been a change in management, giving us more reason to stay. Corbin is our new manager and has done a fantastic job! Him and new his assistant Ezra are never further than a phone call away if you need anything. This is just a great... More
