Eagle Motel
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Manitou Springs
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I don't normally write reviews, but I wanted to for this one because I strongly suspect some of the raves reviews here were written by the motel owners or their friends. Its not far from downtown, but there are lots of places closer. The walls are paper thin. If you need anything at night, forget it - call the office and you'll get an answering machine. The continental breakfast is small, rubbery bagels, some stale packaged donuts, and terrible coffee (no decaf if you need it). You put it on a tray and take it back to your room because there's nowhere to sit. There's no bathtub (most people won't care, but in case you do). The owner seems nice, but his son doesn't seem to like guests very much. Most of these problems are fixable, so I wouldn't write this place off if the price is reasonable (ours seemed high). Wasn't awful, but definitely not the "best kept secret in Manitou".

I am sorry your stay with us was was not to your liking. As far as calling the office after 10pm until 7am you are right you do get an answere machine but if there is something important that you need (like left your key in room and can not get in) my personal number is on the message board on the office glass door. As far as continental breakfast we exceed what the definition is in Webesters Dictionary. You are entitled to your opinion. So the next time your in Manitou come back and stay at our family owned and operated motel.

We will definitely return to this motel. The room was comfortable (not cramped) and exceptionally clean. Everything was in good working order. The motel is older, but well maintained. The owner was very nice. The location was ideal. We had a very good stay here and would recommend it!

Thanks to owner/manager Bill of the Eagle Motel in Manitou Springs, Co. Nice affordable motel. Good beds, clean rooms and hot showers. Short walk to old town for shopping, eating or just seeing the sites.

Stayed here 1 night and it definitely served its purpose. Short walk to manitou springs city center. Beds were comfortable and the shower was phenomenal . We didn't get to experience much of the immediate surroundings, but what we did was pleasant .
I would recommend especially if on a budget

This is a great locally owned budget motel, we have stayed here before, so….we’re hip to this place and We Like It!!!
We stay at the Eagle Motel because: #1 this place has the most powerful showers I’ve ever been in coast 2 coast!
Last year I reviewed the Eagle Motel and stated “the Showers could strip paint” I’m standing by that statement! However there’s more, our room while small was very clean and nice with new carpet and parking right outside the door, motel ownership is close by and always available and caring.

If you only stay in one budget motel in the area, make sure The Eagle is the motel you stay in, I know, you won’t be disappointed.

My Father and I looked aground for a while looking for a good room to stay awhile. Once we got here Bill welcomed us with open arms. Best rooms in manitou for the price. I would like a swimming pool ,but this place does not need one. I love waking up and going to see Bill for coffee and donuts.Best part is the wi-fi is super fast and FREE! oh and there is NO DRAMA at all here! no one bugs you or anything, and everyone is friendly.

The charm alone of this place is worth staying at least one night.

The Eagle motel is our home away from home.

Room Tip: Every room they have are clean and up-to-date.

Usually I avoid motels because my experiences have been that they are outdated and dilapidated, but this motel changed my mind. The room was clean and decorated in neutral colors, and the owner was very nice. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. It is not a luxury hotel, but I would recommend it to anyone looking to save some money and have a comfy night sleep!
