This was a second stay at the Rainbow Motel. Service was excellent as it was during our first stay. Room was clean and tidy and very home like. Owners and housekeeping crew are friendly. Location is great and a good view of Pikes Peak.

Several months before our weekend stay our Girl Scout troop was offered a great deal at this motel, for two suites that sleep 6 with kitchenettes for our group of 12 people, which we reserved. When we arrived we were given two ordinary rooms with two beds each to sleep 8, and no kitchens. They did offer us one cot for each small room, but that still would have left two people sleeping where? It created a very stressful couple hours as we had to find other accomidations, and were then late for a planned and pre-paid dinner event. They were very rude as well and did not want to give us a full refund at first. Very disapointed.

I represent the Rainbow Motel. First of all you made your reservation for early June and pleaded with us to give you the best economy rate for your girls scout troop. At that time we gave you the very best rate we could, considering the fact that it was early into the season, to accomodate your group. Later on you changed your reservation to late July where those units were no longer available but you were given an option with smaller units but we would still give you the off season price, because of the girls scouts. I dont know how were you planning to fit 12 scouts into 2 double size rooms ( simple mathemathic would not allow it unless you thought the room would be bigger and some of them could sleep on the floor in the sleeping bags). Nobody was rude to you because we are not in the busines to be rude and also our reputation precede us with our customers ( thats why we have growing number of returning
customers). Your comments are very our of place and unjust. You were very rude and unprofesional, setting bad example for your girls scouts.

This IS the area to stay if visiting the Colorado Springs area. Pay no attention to a previous poster who gave the impression that this was not a good area. The area is older but VERY clean and well kept. This location is within minutes of Downtown, the Garden of the Gods (which is a free park that you absolutely must go to), Manituo Springs (also a must visit), many shops and restaurants, gas stations, groceries, and much more.
Our room was reserved by phone, spoke with the owner who was very polite and professional. Upon arriving the Inn was as pictured. Check in was easy. Our room was clean and quiet. Everything worked, the A.C., the microwave, the plumbing, the WIRELESS INTERNET, the mini fridge, and the king sized bed was very comfortable. Parking was in front of our door as all rooms are on the ground level.
If you are looking for charming and cozy this IS the place for you.

It's been 9 years since last we came out west and we stayed here then. 2010 sees many improvements in the rooms as most have been modernized and the owners are very hospitable. If you are looking for reasonable and home like then this is the place to stay. The attractions are close by with the Cog Railway just a 10 minute ride away. You can see Pikes Peak from here with its inviting picturesque view. Yes we highly recommend a stay at the Rainbow Lodge for everyone from a single to families. The beds are confortable and we slept well from the 1st night of our stay.

The friendly staff was so attentive and made it feel as if the Rainbow Lodge was a home away from home. Our Cousins got married in Cheyenne Park, and although it was a drive to get there, Rainbow lodge was very centralized to a lot of tourist places like Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs Shopping Districts, etc. We spent 4 days and the rooms were always clean, everything worked properly and the prices were amazing. I also loved the fact that they had a really nice picnic area with a BBQ pit where our family gathered. The view is also amazing. I would wake up and step outside to see the Rocky Mountains in all their glory! My fiance and I were prepared to spend a lot more money than we actually had to. I would definitely stay here again! On behalf of "Primo" and his future wife, Thank you Rainbow lodge for a wonderful experience!!

My husband and I stayed here about 6 years ago and thought then that the owners were nice. We vacationed in Colorado Springs again and stayed once again here. Very clean and quiet. Big rooms and a great price. Conveniently located to all tourists sites. Would highly recommend the Rainbow Hotel.TVellez Wichita Kansas
