We have been staying here for several years. There are two different "levels" of room. The rooms in the main lodge are luxurious, have been renovated, and are lovely. They are close to the bar, the spa, and the restaurant. All look out over the Garden of the Gods toward Pikes Peak for an absolutely amazing view, especially in the morning as the sun comes up. The rooms in the south area of the complex are much older, in worse repair, and sort of strangely configured. They're sort of like staying in a room that was nice in the 1960s. To give you an idea, the room we stayed in this time had a huge epoxy-filled crack in the bathroom sink (yes, one sink--in the newer rooms there are two), two kinds of tile in the room with the shower and toilet: larger white tiles as the shower/tub surround and then old 4 x 4 grubbier looking off white tiles on the floor. The air conditioners that work are the window units similar to a lower end motel, and yes, you need air conditioning in the summer in colorado. These rooms are a bit of a walk to the restaurant, etc. However, they also have the same fabulous views and nice patios with table, chairs, and a lounge, and you frequently see deer wandering across the grass early and late. We have stayed in both types of rooms, and there is something good to be said about both. If you want luxury surroundings and being able to walk to the bar without going outside, stay in the new part. If you want to feel as if you have a little more room, don't mind the walk, like a little more privacy (the south area is rarely crowded), stay in the south end. I have a sense that the south end is maybe better if you have children--more space, more privacy, and less fanciness. Can easily get a rollaway bed in one of the south rooms. AND the south rooms cost somewhat less, if you're interested in saving a bit. Breakfast in the main dining room, especially on the patio in summer and fall is a pleasure--good food and a spectacular view that makes you feel good. Also we have always found the people who work there to be pleasant and good at their jobs. After reading the reviews, I started thinking about whether I'd seen any little kids there, and have to say I haven't. Frequently see college age kids with their parents (like us). Also the dinner crowd in the dining room is generally an older one. Many other places to try for dinner in Colorado Springs. This is a very close and direct drive to Colorado College for those who have kids in school there. Will try to post photos later.
