“Close to town, clean room and a/c kept it cool”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

We found this motel per tripadvisor and was very happy with the staff.
As per others have voiced, don't waste time on the breakfast. Several places to choose from. We stayed here for 2 nights on 2nd floor with King size bed. Room was clean and was cool. A/C does make noise but we did not seem to notice.
Good location for walking down town. We never used the pool but several seemed to be enjoying. Staff was very courteous.
Would recommend this motel for stay in the area.

Rooms were large and clean with a spacious vanity area. The front desk staff was friendly and it was very easy to walk into downtown Manitou Springs. Only criticism - "continental" breakfast was totally sub-par (think Honey Buns), including the coffee and not even a bowl of fruit. Don't bother, just go into town to eat.

Take a room on the second floor it is quieter, but ther is no elevator. The A/C coninually cycles on and off and this can be annoying. But it has a great location and the owner provides great tips as to local food and directions to nearby attractions. They have a coin operated laundry, bot two buildings towrd downtown there is a laundramat and next to it a "Wash and Fold" that wil do 10 lbs for $10. The continental breakfast consists of juice, coffee, bananas, and packaged sweet stuff. Coffee is very weak, no milk available. But rooms have refrigerators so buy whatever else you want.

The room was clean and large and I thought was a good value. The staff were very helpful. This is the second time we stayed here and got the same room with a kitchen as it is larger. The location is great for downtown and Pikes Peak. There are a number of attractions near here including Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds. It is about a quarter mile slightly uphill from downtown so you may want to drive if you are not in shape.

We stayed three nights at the end of May 2011. It is the prefect location for walking to downtown Manitou Springs (only about 3 blocks away) especially since parking can be rather difficult downtown somethmes. Nice size rooms, we stayed on the second floor, no elevator but not that big of a deal. Breakfast consisted of prepackaged muffins, cinnamon rolls and danishes along with juice and coffee. Nothing great, but enough to get us going in the morning. Small outdoor pool and hot tub which we did not use much because it was still a little chilly. My son's favorite part was Angel the dog of the property. We would stay again!!
