The hotel had good ratings in tripadvisor. I suspect there are some good rooms and can understand those who say is is a quaint and nice little place. However for us this is perhaps the worst lodging I've experienced in a long long time (including trips to 3rd world places). The room looked like it rarely gets a thorough cleaning.... More

This fellow has the Columbine Inn, inadvertently mistaken for another motel. He stayed here On September 8th and 9th in a King suite (#06)... The room and all furnishings are new. He mentioned a register falling off wall in bathroom. All rooms have radiant heat in floors; Hence, no registers... I emailed him regarding his recollection. Sam Salter/owner More

Idaho Springs is just a stop on Highway I-70 west of Denver, cute town and this was a really nice "motor motel". Looks like they have been updating, the decor was a bit cluttered and 90's like, but very clean and the price is right. The room had a kitchenette but no dishes or utensils provided without a deposit-we hadn't... More

Very nice and clean. The owner Sam was very nice and told us about the back patio area. . Looks like they are making updates and keeping it modern. Loved the back patio area. Would come back to this place again.

Very happy with our choice. Small limited parking but- Nice to pull right up to your room! Simple and inexpensive. Very clean and comfortable. Close to adorable downtown Idaho Springs and Arapaho National Park a plus!

The cleanliness of the room was subpar and the customer service was poor. We were in room 24. There were stains on the bed linen, furniture, ironing board, and carpet. The bath mat needed to be replaced and the grout in the bathroom was black in areas. We also discovered a bedbug on a pillow after we had already slept... More

I've been disinfecting rooms every month for15 years; Since, epidemic was identified. Been able to stay ahead of infestations until now...Fortuitously, infestation was found in only 1 room. Room was disinfected and sanitized. Moreover, ALL rooms were stripped, cleaned and rendered hygienic. I certify my rooms, Sam Salter More

We love this place. The owners are great, especially Sam. Although, we missed him this visit. But, did visit with his wife. The property is very neat and clean. Our room was just great as it usually is. It is a great place to stay if you are headed up the Central City. It gets us away from all the... More

Our stay was over a year ago. I only gave our stay 3 stars because we stayed in their only pet friendly room that they had - which was not yet renovated. (Check with management to see if any rules have changed in regard to pets.) The room was average, but had what we needed. Microwave & minifridge, TV, decent... More

Clean & very adequate. Liked the mini-kitchenette! But PLEASE put a brighter lightbulb in the shower/toilet room. It was so difficult to see well enough to shave & to use the toilet at night. Could cause an accident--liability should be a concern, Sam! Limited TV channels, & not even the Denver channels!
