Great price Good people & room, close to everything we needed. After several days on Mt. Evans the bed was heaven and the Price! We were not looking for a resort just a place to reload. Booked over the phone months ahead, no problems.

Second time staying here. Room was large and clean. Included a kitchenette with refrigerator and stove all at a reasonable rate. Conveniently located near downtown and the Argo Mill Museum. Off street parking and king size bed were nice pluses. Would stay here again !

I was so pleasantly surprised by this little gem. It is a small place, but in the midst of Aspen trees and arranged in one-level suites. I had a room with kitchenette, and it was cozy and pretty. The decor was artsy, quirky, rustic, an awesome mix that made one feel at home! The bed and real comforter in non-white/plain... More

Spend the day in Black Hawk gambling and needed a room at reasonable price. This was the place. Well worth the short drive. Comfortable beds and very clean. It is close to highway and the price was right

I reviewed Trip Advisor before deciding to stay here. Based on the previous reviews, I was not disappointed! The hotel is charming inside even though there is a lot of shrubberies outside. The room I had was ooozing with charm, from the cute artwork on the walls to the well appointed kitchen, to the colorful towels, this motel was worth... More

We stayed here based on other trip advisor reviews. It did not disappoint. We stayed in a king room and it was very clean, spacious and eclectic in its decor. The gentleman behind the front desk was delightful! Definitely has a mom and pop feel.. will be staying here again!

The hotel had good ratings in tripadvisor. I suspect there are some good rooms and can understand those who say is is a quaint and nice little place. However for us this is perhaps the worst lodging I've experienced in a long long time (including trips to 3rd world places). The room looked like it rarely gets a thorough cleaning.... More

This fellow has the Columbine Inn, inadvertently mistaken for another motel. He stayed here On September 8th and 9th in a King suite (#06)... The room and all furnishings are new. He mentioned a register falling off wall in bathroom. All rooms have radiant heat in floors; Hence, no registers... I emailed him regarding his recollection. Sam Salter/owner More

Idaho Springs is just a stop on Highway I-70 west of Denver, cute town and this was a really nice "motor motel". Looks like they have been updating, the decor was a bit cluttered and 90's like, but very clean and the price is right. The room had a kitchenette but no dishes or utensils provided without a deposit-we hadn't... More

Very nice and clean. The owner Sam was very nice and told us about the back patio area. . Looks like they are making updates and keeping it modern. Loved the back patio area. Would come back to this place again.

Very happy with our choice. Small limited parking but- Nice to pull right up to your room! Simple and inexpensive. Very clean and comfortable. Close to adorable downtown Idaho Springs and Arapaho National Park a plus!
