Over the past year or so, my husband has frequently stayed here while stationed in Colorado Springs; I stayed with him for most of the summer (sometimes two of us, sometimes four...plus our dog) and we couldn't have been happier. The weekly rate was stellar, especially to have a fridge and microwave in the room...the staff is out of this world incredible...and the location is unbeatable! We've stayed in several of the rooms, and can personally say that those managing the hotel have done an incredible job upgrading and improving the rooms as time has passed.
If you're looking for a five-star resort, keep looking. But if you're looking for an affordable hotel in an incredible location, look no further!! My husband will soon be transferring, but Manitou Inn and Suites will always be our first choice when coming back to the area.
PS - Thank you to Kevin and Angela for always making us feel welcome and making sure we were taken care of...hopefully our next home away from home will be able to live up to the standards you set! :)
