Canon City is full of activities rafting, zip lines, ATV, fishing, hiking, and the list goes on and on, however the selection of hotels in the city is sad at best. The ladies at the Abby suggested Jewel of the Canon as one of the cutest, cleanest, and centrally located places to stay in town. I have to say I was blown away; the room was beautiful, extremely clean, we arrived to fresh baked cookies, it was only a short walk from the Royal Gorge Railway and downtown, and the owners not only made a fabulous breakfast but they were extremely friendly and fun to converse with. We could not have had a better time over the holiday weekend breaking up our mosquitos and camping with an exceedingly comfortable night at Jewel of the Canon (also one of the best beds I’ve ever slept in). I would highly recommend Jewel of the Canon if you plan on visiting Canon City or the Royal Gorge area.
