“Amazing Views”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband, two young children and I stayed at the Lodge at Garden of the Gods this past weekend.
The pros -- the views are incredible and wildlife abounds at the Lodge. (I halfway suspect that they have a pen of mule deer somewhere and release them on cue to impress visitors!) We pulled into the circle drive to be greeted by a giant buck munching on the bushes, saw rabbits everywhere, and saw three more deer while we ate breakfast in the dining room the next day. The rooms are spacious (if a little dated, but that didn't bother us) and our king-size bed (more on that below) was comfortable. We stayed in room 106, on the ground floor north of the main lodge, and our patio was directly facing the Garden of the Gods. Parking is available right outside the rooms. Staff was very friendly. We ate breakfast in the dining room. The food was good, service was very professional and again the views of the surroundings and wildlife were second-to-none.

The cons -- while service is friendly, this is a country club first and more geared towards adults than families with young children. I had booked a room with two queen beds directly with the hotel but when we arrived only a king room was available. I had to specifically request a roll-away twin bed since there were four of us -- they were going to send us to the room with only one bed. The dining room was also closed the evening we were there for a private charity event. The lounge was open but is essentially a bar and there weren't many tables available. That said, the director was very accommodating and set up a table for us in the main lobby area, which worked out well with the kids.
Overall, this is a nice place with amazing views and friendly service that make it well worth a stay, especially if you are travelling sans children.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side of the main lodge directly overlook Garden of the Gods.

We spent a long weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from our second floor room was amazing! Waking up to the sight of snow falling on the "Garden of the Gods" was beautiful. The room was spacious and comfortable and featured everything we required for the weekend. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and it was delicious with a large range of options to choose from. We went out for dinner in town so didn't try the restaurants here but be prepared to have appropriate clothing as denim isn't allowed at dinner.
The spa, hot tub and steam rooms we particularly loved and would recommend getting a massage!
The location of this cannot be beaten and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor overlooking the "Garden of the Gods".

We spent our 35th anniversary here. First our room was on the first floor and very big. Lots and lots of space. We each had our own sinks. I had a great mirror and seat to do hair and makeup. Great bed.

Everyone went beyond. They believe in customer service. Special thanks to Krystyna Pudlo Director of Housekeeping, who came right out as we were checking in and greeted us and even left us a box of truffles for our anniversary. One time we wanted extra creamer and before we could get back to our room, someone personally ran creamer to us.

The pool area is great and the view is wonderful. Unfortunately, we had rain most of our stay so we were only able to use the pool once.

They have specials dinners. One night was Italian night and 1 night we went to the golf course dining room for special night of burgers and beer.

Would stay again.

Room Tip: Spa day on Tuesday you get 20% off. Also be careful about tipping we were not aware at first but th...

Three of us enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious, the beds comfortable as home, view was spectacular from the 2nd floor, dining was excellent (try the bisque), massages were pleasant, and the wildlife made it even more memorable. Deer in the morning, bunnies all day, elk visited the pool off of the patio during breakfast, and luckily we avoided the bears as there were signs posted at the entryways. ;) Overall our time in the Colorado Springs area was enjoyable. Manitou Springs was different. The cafes and shops felt like an out of the way college town with a great hippie kind of vibe. We all loved Heart of Jerusalem Cafe on the main strip but nothing beat the dining at the hotel. The filet was perfect, the bisque I had three times in three days, and the Ahi Tuna salad looked picturesque. Excellent staff & stay. Recommend it to all.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is preferable to view Garden of the Gods. 1st floor for bunnies at your door.

This place has an unrivalled location and it's well-designed to make the best of the views across to Garden of the Gods and beyond to Pike's Peak. My room was comfortable and roomy (but why no towel rail for the basin in the closet area?) but the best thing was the aforesaid view. And for a golfer or tennis player, this would be almost-heaven. Sad, then, that the quality of the architecture, the comfort of the room and the view were not matched by the food on offer. Boring, uninspiring and unexceptional come to mind. This place deserves better. Especially as it was understaffed for breakfast.

We more or less stumbled on this place, thanks to Trip Advisor, since none of the standard guides mention it, and were so glad that we did.

We had a club king, which means a large bedroom with table and comfortable chairs by a large window with stunning views, a walk-in closet, large bathroom, sitting room with fireplace, and wetbar with fridge and all sorts of glasses. The second floor balcony overlooked the grounds and straight into Garden of the Gods. It was well-located for touring the area, but given the amenities on the property, coming back in the afternoon and hanging around the infinity pool and the gym was a treat. They do add a $15 day resort fee, but in this case you really get something for it. The suite was immaculate - thank you housekeepers!

Room Tip: Ask for second floor location. It is worth the extra $20 for a club room.

was a bit thrown off initially because it is technically a country club, but a room at the lodge gets you all the amenities available, and there are a lot! First and formost we had a secondfloor rm. 0214 and it was a huge suite with a balcony and every view directly to the gardens of the gods- spectacular to wake up to!The room was nice; 2 flat screens/ fireplace/mini fridge, but they could have done without the fake ficus tree:) The girls who worked there were really super friendly and helpful. The location is also perfect for branching out- going to Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, etc. Nice heated infinity pool with a gorgeous view! Tip: I actually booked through Booking.com (who I love btw) but got a better rate and a better room calling the hotel directly.We actually stayed an extra night and got an even better rate. Highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: room 0214 was huge- our balcony was not covered though and that would have been nice. Most of the ot...
