....because of the high ratings for this motel. Stayed 4 nights on a getaway trip with friends. Stayed in 2 different rooms, both in bad need of remodeling, especially the bathrooms. Carpets were stained; no shampoo; no maid service; had to ask for fresh towels; seedy characters actually LIVING there as though it was an apartment complex; guys wandering around with beer cans and smoking cigarettes; first night we were there, police were called to talk to an unruly tenant. Smoke from a resident in room below us wafted up into our room, and we had to turn up the air conditioning and open the bathroom window to get it blown out. We will never stay here again. One positive: staff was very friendly.

Stayed here last night b/c of so many positive reviews. Think they were rigged. No soap, no shampoo, and definitely no continental breakfast. The place is ancient and underwired--it could not handle a hair dryer, curling iron, and air conditioner being on at same time. It could not handle the tv and air being on at same time. The breakers were tripped three times and the solution was too reduce our use. Thank God I did not have my computer plugged in, etc. The shower had a bare tricklet of water coming out. Their parking is minimal. Upholstered furniture is outside doors waiting to be hauled away it looks like--very junky looking. The drapes and bed covering had holes. The sheet did not fit tightly on bed.... I could go on and on and I can't believe that we paid $71. Got ripped off. The woman that checked us in afternoon was not helpful when we asked where the cog railway line was--our impression was that we had interrupted her while playing a game on computer. No customer skills at all. It was hot and the pool did not have water in it--wonder if it will later.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere. Rooms are so tiny that the two of us were doing a balancing act.

Stayed for one night because of the good reviews and we only wanted a simple place to sleep and did not need amenities of higher priced hotels. First off I will list the good: Low rates, very friendly reception office personel, the rooms are very clean and it was quiet. The bad: It is very old so although they do keep it as clean as it can get ( there was not even any dust on the baseboard heaters ) there is mold growing in the windows. The other problem was that is was much too warm in the room and there was no way to adjust the heat. The little window air conditioner battled with the heaters and still the room never went below 85 degrees. When I complained about this, the receptionist explained that the boilers had not been shut off for the season yet. She was sympathetic and apologetic but there was nothing she could do. All in all, I view this as the little motel that could. But even for the low rate, I will not stay again, mostly because the heat problem in the room.

We came for a week and have been here for about 5 months. There has been a change in management, giving us more reason to stay. Corbin is our new manager and has done a fantastic job! Him and new his assistant Ezra are never further than a phone call away if you need anything. This is just a great place to stay whether it be a night, a week or more!! The rooms here are fairly large and this is also a pet friendly motel. We would recommend the Redwing Motel to anyone that appreciates a quiet and clean room with GREAT service.

Room Tip: We;ve had three and would recommend all of them depending on your families size.

This motel is located in the heart of Manitou springs. I loved the hotel location because it is far from busy street . Hotel is very quiet and clean. Service is great and room rate is affordable. I highly recommend this motel.

We had reservations, when we got to town we called for directions, Dave the manager got us lost, and head back out of town, called back, and he had us talk with another lady, she finely figured out where we were (didn't know where the library was 1 mi away)

When we arrived they had trouble with the shared fax creditcard machine line ... After 15 min we got the keys to room #27 ... We noticed four hoodlums up on the balcony which had just come out of #26 ... smoking ... The rooms and balcony are non-smoking ... The whole parking lot smelled like a ashtray!

I pull up to park in the only available space right next to another old Benz the same color as mine but pretty much trashed ... The owner if the car come running out to greet us ... Come to find out he is a "realtor" that has been living there for over nine months!

We grab our bags and head up the concrete stairs that had the edges broken off, and the out door carpet worn out and torn ...

The toilet had "spots" on the rim, and the seat was old and checked ... No way to know if it really was clean ... Even though my wife first used her own sanitizer on it .. We decided we were not happy!

We looked around and called a bunch of places to find a pet friendly place that had a room, we eventually found The El Colorado Lodge! Great Place!

I then went back to tell them we were not gonna stay at the Red Wing Motel and told them why.

The lady who canceled our room apologized and said that it is one of the better rooms, and that she had checked it yesterday ... The manager was there to help her with the credit to our card, as she appeared fairly new to the machine

It is not a good quiet place to stay, as there are young people hanging around from the skate board park next door ... And a party hardy place ... Byob;)
