Where to stay?

My daughter (age 11) and I will be in Colorado Springs in the beginning of June for a special girls trip. We will be doing the Pike Peak train, Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Zoo. Where is the best place to stay with a pool and not too expensive?

We liked the Drury Inn on the north end we got it for maybe $79 (that was in 2010 though) or in that neighborhood if I recall correctly (it was definitely under $100). This last time we stayed across the street at The Academy Hotel and that was $101 for the upgrade room in "T" tower. These rates were for a family of four with two beds so I'm assuming cheaper for you.

The Drury for all the food/drinks!!!! Great value to your stay. Also the recliner in our room was nice and the kids liked the in/out pool they had.

The Academy the free breakfast is out of this world and it's a very very nice place to stay. I love the lobby.

I'll get you started. These are the ones closest to to PP and G of G. Travelodge on Ore Mill, Comfort Inn-Manitou, Best Western Sky Way, America's Best Value- Villa Motel.

Town-n-country Cottages might be a little more expensive, but you could make your own meals. Your daughter would probably enjoy walking the streets of Manitou Springs, there's a penny arcade and a few shops on the main street. You could actually walk from America's Best Value (but the pool overlooks the main street).

Cave of the Winds is nearby, I think she would really enjoy that (you will enjoy the views). They've added some new attractions. The Cliff Dwellings are good for that age group as well.

When you're on the way to the zoo, park behind the Broadmoor (at the Catholic Church) and walk in. It's an amazing property. Happy Planning!
