“great value for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

Our family of 4 stayed in the cottage for two nights at the end of March, for a spring break getaway. It was tastefully and comfortably furnished, and the layout worked well for us. Our kids (2 and 4 yrs) slept in the front bedroom, which has a queen bed. The room faces a busy street and there is a lot of traffic noise, but there was a whitenoise machine in the room and anyway the traffic soothed our kids to sleep. The room has a door opening onto the front porch, but we were able to drag the bureau over a few inches to ensure our kids didn't slip outside in the night. The kids weren't so keen on sharing a bed, so we put a thermarest on the floor and our son slept there.

We slept in the back bedroom, in a nice king bed. We kept some food in the cottage and ate breakfast in the kitchen. We could have cooked full meals but chose to eat out for lunch and dinner. There is a washer/dryer, bathtub/shower, central heating and plenty of space for the children to play. They had a great firepit set up out back but we didn't use it. there was plenty of parking. Mike was friendly, nice and understanding of our needs. He worked it out so we could check in a little early so our daughter could nap in the cottage.

The hotel is super convenient to several attractions--Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs (with Cave of the Winds and the Cliff Dwellings), Old Colorado City, and even the Cheyenne Mountain zoo is pretty close. We enjoyed not having to drive for ages to get where we wanted to go. There is a Safeway supermarket right across the street.

Keep in mind that it is an old cottage, not a luxury resort, and you'll be very pleased with your stay. Highly recommended for families.

My family really enjoyed our stay. Neat, clean, and so close to everything. Grocery store right across the street! Our breakfasts were in house while our lunches and dinners were are nearby places. Staff was friendly and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Me and a friend planned to stay here but couldn’t make the reservation date. I called and was taken care of by Mike, the owner. He was able to give me a credit for another night in the same room. I came back a week later and used that credit. The room was clean, spacious, and located right in the middle of town(close to the Incline hike).
Hospitality was what you might expect from an old time friend, GREAT.
Accommodations were nice, not flashy, and comfortable!
Highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Colorado Springs area.

Room Tip: I didnt stay in it, but the penthouse looked great! Definitly going there next time.

My wife and I stayed in the 100 year old, updated cottage adjacent to the hotel from mid- December 2012 to mid-Jan 2013. They have done a wonderful job decorating and outfitting the cottage with all the essential living stuff required for an extended stay. The king bed provided me some of the best sleep I have had in years. The location is convenient to many restaurants and activities. Mike is a fantastic owner/manager. He was always available when we had a question or a need. We would definitely stay there again.

We have stayed at Hotel San Ayre many times and look forward to many more. Great location and very reasonable prices. Walk to grocery store, Dominoes, and several other restaurants. Professionally run and very clean. Can't ask for more really. Mike is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

Room Tip: Great value! Don't miss an opportunity to start a tradition.

My college summers were spent as a driver/guide for touring in the late 50s. The San Ayre took
me back to the area and ambiance of that time. Most enjoyable to once again immerse myself
in those memories. Stepping out from my room gave an immediate view of Pikes Peak where I had spent a lot of time.

As others have stated, the cozy room and friendliness of Mike make for a nice stay. Mike's diversified business background made for interesting conversations. Price was great for the extended stay. Locally, this area is known as the Westside or as it was originally known, Colorado City, from back in 1859. Many restaurants. My breakfast choice is the nearby Bon Ton.

My sister, brother and I stayed in the cottage next door to the hotel. It was very nice and comfortable for the three of us. This was much better than a hotel that would have cost us a lot more for one room. Beware the bathroom is in the middle of the house and too small to dress in, bring a house coat for making runs to and from bedroom.
The area was great! Garden of the gods right behind us, Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City blocks away.
