“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

After a wedding and visit in Cheyenne, Wyoming, we headed to Colorado to sightsee for the rest of our trip. Colorado Springs area was our first destination. We love to explore "off the beaten path" so checked hotels in Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. This was popped up and based upon other TripAdvisor reviews we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. The room was large and clean. Nothing fancy but close to Pike's Peak railroad and Garden of the Gods. It was great. The staff was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay. The best thing was the price -- super value!! Would definately recommend this hotel.

We stayed in one of the cabins over Labor Day weekend. There were five of us so we used a roll away bed and that made quarters a little "cozy". Since we spent most of our time out of the room, it didn't matter and we enjoyed being together. As others have noted this location is within walking distance to downtown Manitou and just a short drive to the Garden of the Gods. The staff was always friendly when I had a question or popped in for the continental breakfast. Not a huge selection for breakfast - fruit, pastries and coffee - but sufficient for a quick bite to tide you over on your way out the door! Would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here for our short weekend in Manitou Springs. Great location to downtown. Nice guy at front desk greeted us and told us some info about the area. Good beds, clean rooms and quiet. Close to Pikes Peak Cog depot and Garden of the Gods. Good value !

The room was spacious, clean, tastefully decorated, everything in excellent condition. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were too soft for me. It is close enough to walk to the downtown shops and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was plenty of water pressure and hot water, I can't say that for more expensive hotels. The shower and toilet were behind their own door, so the other person could use the sink The breakfast was commercially made danish, muffins, etc, but it was sufficient. Coffee is available in the lobby, but there is a coffee maker in the room, also a small fridge and microwave. There were only two towels and they happily provided us with a couple of more. It's quiet and I felt very safe there.

Very, very nice facility. The room was great/comfortable. We ended up staying two nights rather than the one night that we'd anticipated. It was nice to be able to walk downtown thus avoiding searching for parking.

Years ago my great-grandparents had lived just above the motel. I was able to walk up to Fountain Place and see their old place. It's miserable driving on that street so I appreciated being able to do the visit via an easy walk.

If I'm ever in the area again, I'd love to stay here. It's perfect.

Room Tip: Stay more than one night if possible to enjoy the area. It's an easy drive to Colorado Springs...

I stayed here over a weekend in September for a nearby wedding. First off, the location is wonderful. Close to Garden of the Gods and Old Colorado City. The staff were friendly and even when the office is closed, someone is still on site for emergencies.

The room was clean and neat. It was a great value.
