This cool, vintage motel was exactly what we were looking for. Refrigerators and microwaves in the room saved us a lot of money on eating out. It is family owned and all of the owners and staff were very friendly. It's literally about 10 minutes from almost everything we wanted to do. Great location.

We were late to the game booking our hotel for July 2015, so some choices were already full. Based on TripAdvisor reviews we chose this one. I was OK with Kitsch, in fact I wanted it. From re-reading reviews it may well depend on what room you get. Our beds were soft/lumpy as were the pillows. The bedding was fine...

The good: The motel is cute, the room was large and comfortable, and I loved the old bathroom with the huge bathtub! My son and I enjoyed the pool and, and we all liked having a place to sit around outside our room on the benches. It had a nice touristy atmosphere and great views! The bad: The 'breakfast' was...

Hi ! First as a military person you were charged $80.00 per night on a $95.00 per night room, that has king and queen size bed, so you already got more than military discount. To receive service you can't put the " Do Not Disturb " sign on your door knob and expect service. Upon checking in you were told...

We stayed three nights at Rainbow Lodge and really enjoyed it. Eric is renovating rooms from the traditional motor court model. He showed us the next room that had a renovated bathroom that was quite elegant. The location is between Highway 24 and Business 24 and has good access to Garden of the Gods. We bicycled to and through it....

Very reasonable rates and a surprisingly tastefully decorated room with hard wood floors. Staff is very polite and helpful. They even allow pets and gave us a room with a grassy lawn near the pool for our small dog. Bonus! Location is near serveral nice restaurants and attractions. I highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here last week while on family vacation. We had 4 adults, 1 teen, 1 toddler and 1 infant and this place was very accommodating to our needs. We had a cottage with 3 beds. Very clean rooms, clean pool, and staff were very nice. I would definitely stay there again.

I searched for a month trying to find the perfect place to stay while in Colorado Springs/Manitou and kept coming across this hotel. I finally decided to book it through Booking.com. I booked a regular room with 2 beds. A couple of weeks before we were to be there I called to verify my room and to let them know...

We first stayed at Rainbow Motel in 2000 and have come back at least once a year since then. We love the owners and consider them family! Great rooms, great views! close to all the attractions, walking distance to Manitou Springs. So great to sit under the gazebo and drink coffee in the morning

We stopped At the Rainbow Motel for one night after visiting Garden of the Gods. The price was great & the manager was very friendly & helpful. The rooms were very clean, though they could use an update in furniture. The free Wi-Fi worked good. We slept well & enjoyed the pastries, cereal, & juice that was provided for breakfast...
