“Vistor from Iowa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

We stayed 3 days at the Magnuson Hotel in Manitou Springs. Price is very reasonable. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The place was CLEAN, and QUIET. They have a nice indoor pool that feels outdoorsy, and a hot tub. I used the laundry facilities twice, and both times they were clean. They are also inexpensive, and the dryer runs long enough to dry jeans for a dollar. The rooms are non-smoking, but there are pleasant balconies and patios with chairs outside of each room for smokers. While there, I saw staff outside picking up cigarette butts and sweeping the drive. There are places to eat within walking distance, and the city of Manitou Springs runs a shuttle you can take downtown. The only "downfall" would be that there is a refridgerator in the room, but no microwave. Very pleased with this hotel and will stay again.

The hotel is on the outskirts of town, so you can't walk into town, but there is a restaurant or two in walking distance. Our room was clean and updated. There are a lot of sites to see around this hotel, in fact you can walk to Garden of the Gods...a beautiful site to see. The breakfast was good too!

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor, on the east side.

I come to manitou every year for the pikes peak hill climb and 4th of July. This year I stayed at the Magnuson Hotel Manitou Springs. I enjoyed it very much. Amazing staff and Very affordable, The rooms were very clean as was the rest of the property. Internet was decent and what I expected being in a mountain town like manitou springs. Breakfest was free and had many choices. In my opinion the location was the best in town, less then 5 minutes from downtown manitou and 10 minutes from old Colorado city. Oh ya can't forget the great view of pikes peak. I would recommend the Magnuson hotel manitou springs to anyone wanting to stay in manitou springs or even the west side of Colorado springs.

I stayed here for 5 days. Nice stay. Touristy little town- could walk to the main downtown area in 15 minutes.
Clean rooms, okay breakfast of waffles, coffee, juice, toast and apples. Would liked to have seen more.
Not good wifi connection to work out of the room.

We enjoyed our stay in Manitou Springs. This hotel was one of the few with a vacancy. They were mostly all full. Nice and spacious. Clean and cozy. Priced reasonable. This isn't a nice new modern hotel and many aren't in Manitou but accommodating. Great location for various fun activities.

We stayed three nights at the Magnuson Hotel in Manitou Springs during our holidays spent in Colorado. We had very interesting visits at Garden of the Gods, the Pike's Peak tram and the Dragonman's Military Museum. The worst experience was the Magnuson Hotel. Their WiFi worked sporadically, at best. It generally wasn't working at all unless you took your laptop into their lobby. The 'included breakfast' was minimal with no eggs, bacon, sausage or toast. Nothing hot except a waffle. No microwave, either, in the room or the dining area. The experience was so poor that I don't recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If the room you choose is close to the lobby, you might receive Wifi internet.

Dear Guest,

I am sorry you did not enjoy your recent stay at our hotel. We strive to provide great customer service here at the Magnuson Hotel. To address the issues you had with our hotel I would like to start by explaining that in our mountainous village internet service providers do not offer the standard "lighting fast internet" that most people are used to. They simply do not have the technology to provide in our area. We offer in room internet, Hard wired in each room, and a wifi signal throughout the entire property. The download speed averages about 4-5 mbps which I understand is not great but when guests visit this area their main goal is to explore the outdoors and have fun with their families, internet and TV is usually on the bottom of the list when visiting Manitou Springs. The second issue that needed to be addressed was our Free Breakfast. We advertise a free continental breakfast, not a full hot breakfast. In total we offer 37 different menu items which include an assortment of Coffee, Tea's, Juice, Danishes, Sweet Muffins, Bagels, Toast, English Muffins, Hot DIY Belgian Waffles, Hard Boiled Eggs, Oatmeal, Assorted Cereal, Assorted Fruit, And Yogurt. (including many condiments). We feel that for our price point, this is an excellent selection, also considering that the hotels in town that do offer a full hot breakfast are $40 higher in price. We are also 120 yards from an amazing breakfast only restaurant so if you are in the mood for scrabbled eggs and sausage its only $5 for their breakfast special. The Third issue was not having a microwave. We do not offer microwaves in our rooms because we have had an issue with guests burning popcorn which creates a very foul odor which prevents us from renting the room for up to 2 days. We do however offer a microwave in our Lobby for guest use during hours of operation so if they do need one they have access to it whenever they would like. I hope this response addressed your concerns adequately and we hope you will reconsider your next visit to Manitou Springs. I encourage anyone reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor to read our other amazing reviews and see that we are a Clean and Friendly home base for your visit here in Manitou Springs

Warm regards

Great motel! Great price! The rooms were exceptionally clean and the beds sooo comfortable. Centrally located for all the sites and shops. Really nice indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. Super contintental breakfast, ( not the ordinary coffee and donuts). And most importantly, the staff was extremely friendly and accommadating. Will be back next year!
