“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

My wife and I had to alter plans for our trip to Colorado due to forest fires, floods, and the National Park closures. We were driving though Woodland Park on out way to Colorado Springs to see some friends and decided that would be our new destination.

We found good reviews for Woodland Park Country Lodge and decided to stay there. It was a good decision. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious, but the best was relaxing on the patio. The weather was quite cool but we sat on the patio every night with some coffee and enjoyed the beautiful view.

The Lodge is on our list of places to stay when we're in Colorado again.

Many thanks to you for taking time to share your experience at the Woodland Country Lodge. Your comment about our patio is making us yearn even more for those beautiful evenings on the patio with Pike's Peak standing guard over the beautiful Colorado landscape. We look forward to your next visit. And you'll be pleased to know we now have a new indoor pub in which you can dine on those cooler nights after the sun goes down. We'll keep one of our clean and spacious rooms ready with your name on it.

We arrived for short stay to attend a home inspection. Large clean room. Pillow top bed w fine linens. Ac. We needed to cut short the trip and gave 24 he notice. They were very accommodating. The breakfast was nice. Views are great. Nice patio. Dinner and cocktails served in evening but we did not partake as we had other plans.

A heartfelt thanks to you for letting us host your stay last Fall. We have been busy getting ready for Spring and Summer here at The Lodge and, along with our routine care for our facility, we have also added a new indoor pub with food and beverages. We hope you have time to share an afternoon or evening on the patio or in the pub with us this year. We'll keep the fire pit going.

Since Woodland Park seems to be in the thick of things I'm surprised there wasn't more to choose from. The Woodland Park Country Inn seemed to be the only good place to stay. It was very large but impossible to see if you were on 24 headed to Colorado Springs. No signs, no visibility which seemed odd. It took me a while to find it. The desk said they knew of the situation (but obviously didn't intend to change it).

The welcome was great and I got my room which had no view but I was content. The hotel sits on a look out to Pikes Peak but I don't know which rooms have a view. I would ask the next time. It seemed to be a newer hotel so I was surprised to find the decor a bit dated. It was find with me but I would expect a hotel of that size to be keeping up. It was clean and comfortable and attractive...just not spot on.

The overall ambience of the place was great...smelled of wood and had a great outdoor deck to take in their view of the mountains. I would stay there again and ask for a room with a view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us at the Woodland Country Lodge. You'll be glad to know we have a wonderful new digital and flashy sign right on the highway. We have other plans to keep The Lodge highly visible after the construction that took place along the highway last year. And, we will keep boasting of the unmatched views of Pikes Peak and beautiful Colorado from our outdoor patio and from our new indoor pub. Both with food and beverage service.

Since being acquired by new passionate owners, the Woodland Country Lodge continues to implement upgrades and maintain a standard of high quality and attention to safety, cleanliness and comfort. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks again.

The hotel itself is nice enough, and the people were friendly, but the service was horrible. We were there for our daughter's wedding, so we were very busy. My mom wasn't feeling well so she stayed, intending to get some dinner at the hotel. They told her to go through the pool. When she did, she saw an empty patio. When she tried to ask again there was no one at the desk. So she had chips and a Coke from the vending machine. She is 85 and when I got home I was horrified that she had that for dinner. The next night the cook did not show up. So she had a sweet roll from the vending machine. The entire rest of our stay (5 days), there was no cook and all they offered was pizza. I asked them for an extra hanger, and 10 minutes later she handed me one covered with dust. The breakfast was loaded with fattening sweet rolls, donuts and waffles, so every day we had a hard boiled egg and a yogurt because those were the only healthy things. Most places nowadays offer some healthy hot food, but not here. The rooms were fine and it was clean. We stayed there because of the location, but next time I think we'll try a bed and breakfast.

On behalf of the entire staff here at Woodland Country Lodge, thank you for taking time to let us know of your concerns. Thank you also for the kind words regarding our staff and our facility.

While we are glad you learned of our new outdoor patio in it's infancy, we're more excited about sharing this Woodland Park treasure with guests and the local community now that construction is complete and we have have a full staff. We love to have you come dine with us again when you are in the area. While we only offered pizza on occasion last Fall, we now have a full menu seven days per week. Our indoor pub and outdoor patio offer breath-taking views of the mountains and a wonderful opportunity to relax under the Colorado skies. From Honey/Lemon Pepper Salmon to sirloin, chicken, sandwiches, burgers and yummy appetizers.

Please consider Woodland Country Lodge next time you are in the area. We know you'll enjoy your stay in our clean and comfortable rooms, complimented with our new food and beverage options.

our first impression was very good. the staff is nice , the place is clean , great view of Pikes Peak, nice pool area and breakfast area...and they have fresh cookies :)
we got to our room and the beds were total junk , I mean TOTAL JUNK...so we asked for another room...same problem ! When we sat on the bed in the first room , the mattress came right up in the air on the opposite side of the bed...what the heck !!! And it had a horrible squeak in it. The 2nd room the mattress stayed flat when you sat on it but the horrible squeak was there. There is no way you would get a good nights sleep with all that ...Needless to say we said thanks but no thanks and promptly asked for our money back ...which they gave us with no problem...

Thanks for taking time to make us aware of your concerns during your recent travels here in the Pike's Peak region.

After Woodland Country Lodge was acquired by our current passionate owner, we have constantly addressed concerns that some guests have had with an acute awareness that they are also our own concerns and priorities. The recent months have been exciting and filled with new construction, upgrades and a staff-wide commitment to excellence in customer service.

We'd love to be part of your considerations next time you visit the beautiful Pike's Peak region. Thanks again for your valuable time.

My Husband just Retired as a Vet. We just moved home to CO. It's been several years since we have had a date. Being in the military away from family and friends you don't have any help. My Husband surprised me with with our first date last night. He got a room with a. "Jacuzzi" tub, that had no pressure, it felt grimmy, and it had pink scum around the jets. The bed and pillows were very uncompfertable. Then during the night all these drunk people were wandering the halls and outside being extremely loud. They were so loud to where I couldn't sleep with ear plugs in. I talked to some drunk people out back (who were literally falling) and I from what I gathered The Country Lodge is the place to go party in woodland park. The breakfast was cheap and unhealthy. Not worth what we paid by any means. I'm at home tired with 3 kids now, when last night was supposed to be a relaxing night away for my Husband and I. Not to mention we didn't have the money to do this, but we needed it. I'm very upset that it turned out like that.

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to inform us of your concerns during your visit to Woodland Country Lodge.

Woodland Country has a quiet-hours policy that we enforce to insure all of our guests can enjoy their stay comfortable and undisturbed by the actions of other guests. While we are fond of our new outdoor patio and patio bar, we also draw the line when it comes to excessive noise and late night music. This is a policy that we review regularly to allow the successful marriage of two great amenities we offer: a peaceful night's stay and a fun family atmosphere.

Many weekends this summer will see live music on our outdoor patio during the afternoon hours in the Colorado sun. We invite you to re-visit our newest facility when you are in the area.
