“Don't let the outside fool you”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

This little place doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a great find. The room was newly updated, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. We spend one night in town to ride the train, and this was a great spot as the train station was literally across the street! Front desk staff was helpful and cheerful. Highly recommend!

We always look for small family owned motels on roadtrips. We like the old exterior door, backup and unload, classic motels. The Parkview is a great example of how this strategy really pays off. The owners are great people and care about their guests and their property. They shared their personal history and the Parkview history with us, which really added a nice touch to our stay.

As far as the rooms go, it is simple, very clean and very well maintained. I could on and on but the bottom line is that you will not be disapointed. Highly recommend this motel.

Everything Shawnee Kansas says is right. We stayed for one night while visiting the gorge. The rooms have had a recent renovation. Everything looks new. The rooms are average sized with fridge and microwave. That's a first for us in our US travels. Antlers Hilton didn't have micro or fridge!

Coming from Australia we are used to a high standard in motels and US has plenty of seedy third world motels. We always do our research before staying. High ranking on TA does pay off and the owner knows this as the rating is displayed on the office door. I suggest that the owner starts to respond to all the reviews. That is just as important as getting them. Also, start promoting to get more reviews before competition catch up.

The motel is right on the highway. Double glazing keeps all the noise out and we slept soundly. This was the first motel/hotel where we didn't sweat or have to run a noisy AC all night. So many hotels run their buildings at high temperatures. This one was nice and cool with an option to use the heater.

Although amenities are minimal, we found the motel well deserved of the good reviews preceding ours. Our room had a writing desk too.
As regular travellers I would put this motel as better than most. Very clean, quiet, all the TV channels you need. I would imagine that one day the old CRT TVs will be replaced with LCDs, but again most of the big hotels we stayed at so far have old tube TVs.

Great value for money. Looking at other reviews around town, it appears there are plenty of places you can be shocked and disgusted. This place didn't look much from outside so we kept driving around looking for best motels. The reviews forced us back and it was a good decision.

We spent one night at this motel. The owners were friendly. The room was exceptionally clean and maintained. It was located right on the main street through town, which did quiet down during the night. The room was small and quaint, but had everything(even a hair dryer). We walked to the historic downtown district and had a wonderful breakfast at "Good Thyme Cafe", before we checked out. Beautiful view and was on the edge of town on our way to Royal Gorge.

Always looking for locally owned establishments, we recently stayed at the Parkview Inn in Canon City. Based on the reviews we read we didn't think we would have a problem, but the actual experience exceeded our expectations. The room was clean, the owners are great, the location is great - close to the historic district with a very nice park across an admittedly busy street, the price is great, and when you are staying for six nights to have plenty of time to explore the area, the on-site laundry is a blessing. We will definitely be repeat customers.

Without a doubt, this is the best affordable hotel not only in town but in the whole area! We do work for the Penitentiary System so we often have to stay in Canon City for weeks at a time, and although we get a very convenient reduce rate at other hotels in town, I would not trade the Parkview for any of these other places after having checked all of them. Some of the reasons are the personalized service you receive from the owners, the location of the hotel across the street from some amazing parks and around the corner from downtown and good restaurants, the cleanliness of their renovated rooms, the size of the bathrooms and the quietness at night! Great place to rest. thank you Irmina, You are the heart and soul of the Parkview!

Room Tip: The ones with the bigger bathrooms.

Older hotel but really nice. Rooms are smaller, but really clean. Good food within walking distance, both for dinner & breakfast. On the main drag, so there is some road noise, but quiets down at night. No complaints!
