Sunflower Lodge
Reviewed 19 February 2013

We spent one night at the Sunflower Lodge. The owners were nice and, from the outside, the little casita looked really charming, like a little adobe cabin.. Our night there, however, was a sorry disappointment. The decor and furniture was cheap and very tacky. The mattress was way too soft. The furnace was old, loud and ran every 14 seconds so it was a noisy night. The water in the shower was barely hot enough. Only one burner worked on the two-burner electric stove. The cookware didn't have any lids. The one skillet had food residue in it. I wish I could recommend this place but I can't.

Room Tip: I can only report on the one room available for guests with dogs.

We rented the room with a king size bed to celebrate a birthday and we couldn't be happier. The stand alone adobe rooms are adorable! The bed was so comfortable, the sheets amazingly soft, and the kitchenette had everything including silverware, pots & pans, a toaster,microwave, 2 burner stove, coffee maker, and on and on. The bathroom was a shower only and that was just fine with us. The only odd thing was that you can't control the water temperature at all in the shower, bathroom sink, or kitchen sink. This was a first for both of us. The temperature was just perfect for a hot morning shower, just odd when brushing your teeth. The price can't be beat and I think we'll be returning over Thanksgiving!

I'd shopped various different lodges online and came across the Sunflower Lodge. My wife and I were on a getaway weekend from Breckenridge, CO and absolutely loved this place. In short, if you're looking for a place with tons of amenities, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a place that's run by owners that care and offer basic amenities, at an affordable price, come here. Very clean, quiet, and cozy. We'll be back for sure. -Ron in Breckenridge.

Room Tip: Don't be a demanding pompous type and you'll be fine! This place is clean and cozy.

Just got back from a wonderful overnight stay at the Sunflower Lodge. The owners were wonderful and very acclimating. Our cabin was homey and beautifully appointed. Our favorite thing about the place was the "relaxation spot" as the owner called it. We spent several hours sitting outside in the "relaxation spot" reading and sipping wine. This morning we enjoyed our coffee in the "relaxation spot". I highly recommend the Sunflower Lodge. We have every intention of going back for Thanksgiving weekend.

Really nice place to stay in Manitou springs if you want easy access and a clean, well appointed room. Edward is a really nice guy. He owns the place and he s upfront about everything and helped with any problem. Only downside is that the cell phone reception was zero for some reason and the wi fi also a little weak. Another thing was the hot water wasnt hot enough for some. But overall it was a great place.

This was a wonderful place to stay. It was conveinent to all the locations we wanted to see. Really loved the little lodges. Very clean and homey. Great staff meeting my every need. Enjoyed having the kitchenette. I will definitely stay here on any future trips. Access to Garden of the Gods made it easy to keep up with my early morning walks, when weather permitted that is. I would recommend it to anyone visiting that area.

Room Tip: Get your reservations in early as it is a small place and will fill up fast.

We stayed two nights. Quiet and peaceful. Room was squeaky clean. There was always a parking spot available. Good location. On the down side, we reserved a king and got a queen; room smelled of cigarette smoke; bed was so soft it was hard to sleep two; brown water from the kitchen tap; fridge didn't seem to work.
