“Comfy room and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I was in town for two weeks on a bussiness trip and stayed at Hotel San Ayre. Mike, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. He gave us great pointers on where to eat in town, including a great restaurant accross the street. Mike was readily available to answer questions or for requests, but did not hover. Because I asked not to have my room cleaned while i was there, I felt like I had my own private space.
The rooms are cute and eclectic, and althought there were no small bottles of shampoo or in room coffe, like you might find in large chain hotels, I would choose to stay at this hotel over a chain any day.

We just had clients stay for 2 weeks at the Hotel San Ayre. The property is very well maintained, the rooms were clean, and the staff was friendly. The property has a boutique feel and the hospitality was impeccable. They anticipated our clients' needs whether it was an extension cord, extra linens, tips on what to do, or even a little laundry. This type of service can only be found from small locally owned and a operated businesses so ditch the big chains and check out Hotel San Ayre, I know we'll be using them again.

After reading many good reviews and seeing the cheap rates, we booked our stay. First the good news. Our room was very clean and the owner(?) was very nice, knowledgeable and friendly. Now, the not-so-great. When we arrived the parking lot was completely empty and the place looked like it might be defunct. Yet the no vacancy sign was lit. Our host told us he had quite a few guests but they were all out at the moment. However, by nightfall no one had appeared. It seemed hinky, but then again there's nothing intrinsically wrong with being the only guests-- no noise from other rooms, right? Well, this was true but there was a lot of noise and light from the busy avenue inches from the front doors. To be fair, they did offer a white noise machine. The room was tiny and dark, with practically no shelving or furniture to set your things on. But again, clean. Bed very hard, pillows too. The "boutique" furnishings were straight from Target. There was a fridge and microwave though. I spent the night wondering if I should pull the sofa in front of the door for safety but all was well and it was just my imagination running wild. The location wasn't pretty but it was central to areas tourists would frequent and it was not a bad neighborhood.

We were so thrilled to find a room at the last minute on a busy weekend (Indpendence Day holiday) near Manitou Springs, one of our favorite Colorado haunts. That it was in this darling little gem owned by a terrific host was a bonus. At the last minute we had an unexpected additional guest, and Mike (owner) went out of his way to accomodate us and made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend Hotel San Ayer! We will definitely be back.

Location on vacation is always important and the San Ayre fits the bill, literally. Centrally located in a decent surrounding with a main highway a few miles off of I- 25 the hotel lets you drive quickly to all the known stops without heavy traffic hassels. A Safeway is across the street from your door for needs. Rooms for under $100.00 are square and meets the needs of a traveler's bed and not a site in it's self. If you are looking for a "I'm paying pamper me" hotel this isn't it. I would suggest the colony of hotels just off I-25 farther north of the San Ayre.

STAY FAR AWAY from this place! We booked our stay months in advance for the Manitou Springs Wine Festival through booking.com. On the day of our stay the Manager left a voicemail on our home phone (we were already in route to the destination) stating that they would NOT honor our reservation and claimed there was some weather damage to the hotel. They did not offer to rebook us somewhere else and told us that we had to call booking.com ourselves to cancel the reservation and not get charged. I tried to call the office several times for an explanation only to get voicemail. My requests for a return call were ignored. It turns out that the owner and manager had just overbooked. We drove to the property and it is not in good condition. There are much nicer places to stay closer to Manitou Springs which are more competently staffed. The management of this property is not competent. We had reserved the 'Penthouse Suite' which is on the top floor and when we drove past the property there were guests in that room and on the balcony. We were lied to. Good luck if you choose this property.

Had one night in the very nice penthouse suite - would be perfect for longer stays, well equipped and comfortable. Good location for exploring Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods etc. Mike was very welcoming and helpful. No pool and self-catering, but this was not a problem for us at all. We would definitely stay again.
