Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Beautiful grounds and nice, comfortable and clean rooms. Breakfasts delicious with fresh fruit and yoghurt every morning as well as choices of bagels and pastries. Coffee available 24 hours a day. Near main road so light sleepers might find this a problem.

Better than the pictures, this a unique, characterful hideaway in plain view. Perfectly located for desert excursions, shopping, clubbing or walking to one of a few restaurants nearby. Yes. I said walking. We had the room off the main living-room style lobby and had misgivings about 'sharing' our area with early morning break-fasters but all was well. The real kitchen...

Stopped to ask about having a wedding there. The two hosts could not have been more gracious. We had a tour of the various accommodations as well as the garden and pool area. The property was recently remodeled from the bare walls out and what fabulous results. The appointments in each room are contemporary, warm and welcoming. The garden and...

Dear John L Thanks for a wonderful review of Colt's Lodge. I hope you find it suitable for your upcoming wedding plans. We have been having a great response for our weddings. We are hoping the mini Airstream grows up to be a full sized BAR in the future.

We were very disappointed in Colt's Lodge. After all the glowing reviews, we were really looking forward to our stay. We found the manager to be rude and very unfriendly. The breakfast was nothing like in the pictures. There certainly weren't any pastries. And when I asked for some milk, I was rudely told to get it in the refrigerator....

There were many things I liked about my stay here. First I thought the styling of the lodge was very well done. Our room as well as the rooms I saw pictured had a unique and inviting style to them. We appreciated the Sleep Number bed, it made for a good night's sleep. We did find the angle of the...

Just spent two wonderful nights at the lodge. My wife and I stayed here a few years ago before the remodel. We discussed at the time how beautiful this place could be if someone took the time to renovate.....well it turned out even better than we imagined. The rooms and grounds are beautiful, yet maintain the original charm that drew...

My wife and I stayed four nights in #11, a suite with an entrance outside the gate and facing the street. Most of the rooms face the pool. It was a good size and very nicely decorated and clean. New and fresh. It has it's own patio, but there is a home right next door so it is not private....

Dear CCALMnyc I am wondering about the 4 stars... The only negative comment was about a house next door... I can't move the house, but I have planted plants that will block the view of that house. I hope you will come back and stay again soon

Having stayed at luxury resorts and other high-end properties, Colt's Lodge shines like a star among them. The properly is picturesque, with carefully appointed rooms and decor. Many of the touches - such as a Sleep Number bed, new appliances, and exquisite furnishings - show how much the owners care about their travelers. Each suite had its own "backyard" area,...
