We stayed 3 days at the Magnuson Hotel in Manitou Springs. Price is very reasonable. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The place was CLEAN, and QUIET. They have a nice indoor pool that feels outdoorsy, and a hot tub. I used the laundry facilities twice, and both times they were clean. They are also inexpensive, and the dryer runs long enough to dry jeans for a dollar. The rooms are non-smoking, but there are pleasant balconies and patios with chairs outside of each room for smokers. While there, I saw staff outside picking up cigarette butts and sweeping the drive. There are places to eat within walking distance, and the city of Manitou Springs runs a shuttle you can take downtown. The only "downfall" would be that there is a refridgerator in the room, but no microwave. Very pleased with this hotel and will stay again.
