3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Older place. Clearly a Mom and Pop. No maids here - just Mom. Nice people. Great rate. Rear rooms overlook a stream with tables and chairs as well as a play area with swings. It's a bit dated but the hospitality and ability to sit outside made up for it. Fridge and Micro in room and a sort of meager attempt at breakfast - doughnuts and coffee with granola bars etc.
We stayed 2 nights and were pleased. If you're picky you probably won't like it.
We were out for 19 days and this was the ONLY place who handed us a key and asked us to approve the room before we signed in.

Room Tip: Back side ground level.

We went into Manitou Springs just hoping to get a room for two nights that would allow us to have our two little dogs. Someone at another hotel recommended Park Row telling us that the owners were "good people". From the outside you can't tell but the rooms are good sized and very clean. We felt very lucky. The lady that owns the place is from Poland and she is so very sweet and kind. Also, one of the hardest working women we've ever seen!! She does it all!! You'll see her tending to the grounds AND cleaning the rooms. Anyway, we just loved her and the back area that she has for you to relax and play with your dogs is wonderful. I don't know about the A/C because it was May when we were there and we had very pleasant weather, but we sure enjoyed everything else about the motel. No, its not the Ritz Carlton but I think you know that going in. To us, niceness, cleanliness and a great place for our dogs was so appreciated.

Room Tip: We asked to see our room before we agreed to staying there. They didn't mind at all and it will...

I stayed at the Park Row for 2 weeks on a weekly rate. During the 2nd week the water was shut off completely throughtout the entire lodge for 6 hours every day. (During repairs) The last 4 days of my stay there was no hot water every morning until noon. Each time I was told by the non-English speaking proprietor that the problem had been fixed. They advertise laundry facilities but their dryer didn't work the entire time I was there. My toilet seat was cracked and would pinch my skin every time I sat down. They say they have free coffee in the morning but they NEVER had it and are rarely out of bed before 8:30 in the morning. Do yourself a BIG favor and don't stay there. signed: dale@acadea.com

Room Tip: No hot water in room 204

This place is an absolute gem!! It cost 1/3 the price of name-brand accommodations, and was a perfect fit for my husband & l!! We had a room on the 2nd floor, with a balcony overlooking the creek. The evenings were nice & chilly (late August), so we left the balcony door open all night. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable - they even provided a nice welcome kit (with snacks), toiletries, WiFi, mini-fridge/microwave, and complimentary breakfast. The location is minutes away from all the hotspots of Colorado/Manitou Springs (we had a rental car). The owners were extremely friendly also :)

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room on the 2nd floor with a balcony :)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My husband and I stayed here in late July, when it was really hot (95+ degrees). We were in a room on the the top floor. It was clean, but really small, and the A/C, even set on the lowest temperature didn't cool the room to a temperature below 80 degrees. I have a really hard time sleeping when I'm hot, so that may be a consideration for others in deciding whether or not to stay here. It was a good price, though, and the property has character. I think it is a husband and wife who own the Lodge - the wife does all of the talking with guests and she was really nice. Aside from having trouble sleeping in the heat, which honestly isn't a problem most of the year, it was a great place to stay.

Thanks to reviews, we decided to stay here on our road trip. It is obviously an older motel, but did not disappoint. The owner was pleasant and friendly. It is very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The big surprise was the back yard with its sitting area, babbling brook, and lawn area for our dog to play. We had a room in the back and made use of this lovely area. This hotel is very close to local attractions.
