It's got a great retro feel without the retro smell. It's reasonably priced, very clean, and the owners are really nice people. The mountain suite is where we like to stay: It's up top of the hotel, and has two bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and a living room, as well as a large rooftop patio. The bed is really comfortable. We've stayed here every time we've come to town in the last four years while our daughter has been going to college in Colorado Springs. In all seasons, this place is great. It's different from your typical hotel, and it's a little funky (In a good way), and it's interesting and pretty and comfortable and spacious. It's not far from a Starbucks -- you can walk to that in the morning. And it's between downtown and Manitou Springs.
