This resort offers great value for the money. It's not cheap but the view of Garden of the Gods from our balcony was just stunning! I couldn't believe it was included in the "standard" room price. The room was larger than the standard hotel room with a huge dressing area and a walk in closet-great for getting the suitcases and dirty clothes out of sight.
The food we had a breakfast and dinner was good if a little pricey. Their homemade granola is outstanding. At meals you look over the same view but with a reflecting pool that attracts birds and baby rabbits. My kids were enchanted.
The location is excellent for a short travel time to popular Colorado Springs sites. Of course, you are on top of Garden of the Gods, a 15 minute drive from the Pike's Peak Cog Railway and the many shops and restaurants of Manitou Springs. We booked a horseback tour of Garden of the Gods at Academy Riding Stables, also a 15 minute drive. This is a must if you have horse-lovers in your family.
This resort has the "wow" factor and beautiful grounds for less than one usually has to pay for such amenities. I highly recommend it. The one downside for kids is that the kids pool is a couple of block away. Because the pool was not perfectly convenient and because my kids got henna tattoos in Manitou, we never actually visited the kid's pool.
