“We took a last minute trip & ended up here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

The staff was kind & friendly
The room décors were out of date
The bathroom was a little dirty still
The bedding was clean but the smell of the cigarette Smoke on the walls was pretty bad. If you are looking for a cheap room, it's not too bad. It could be worst.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family

This is probably the least expensive motel in Manitou Springs. The staff is friendly. You can save money here but do not expect anything above minimal. The rooms do not appear super clean and the furnishings are very dated. But if you want to stay along the "Strip" in Manitou and just want a place to sleep, this might be the best place to check out first. My advice would be to view the room you are about to rent before committing to and paying for it. Also check to make sure the TV works to your satisfaction. Parking spaces are ample. I did not use the pool. I would not mind possibly staying here again because my main interest in Manitou is in hiking the Barr Trail rather than spending much time in the room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Working heaters and lots of hot water. Be careful in the tub, no grab bar and tub surface is slick (I put down a hand towel). Superior bed. Old CRT TV with some reception problems. Furniture shabby. Wi-Fi works. The Korean Baptist proprietors are most pleasant and helpful.
