We truly enjoyed our stay. Wonderful place to enjoy your family & friends. We stayed four nights and wish we were able to stay longer. Enjoyed the private patio with picnic table & grill. The deer came right up to us, and our dogs were very welcomed. Hope you get to stay here. We look forward to being here again.

Rooms are small but expected that when booked. Full kitchen was nice for breakfast and lunches on the go. The playground was an added bonus and kept the grandkids busy. Saw a doe and 2 fawns one morning.

We stayed at the El Colorado this past weekend and we had a blast! We were lucky to get a cabin since the place was packed. Our cabin was fresh and clean and the girls delivered the extra things we asked for right away with a smile on their faces. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. This place actually heats...

Nice place, cabins that fit my family. Nice people, fantastic play area and pool. Clean and quiet. Just wished they had laundry and were a little cheaper. But was comfortable and very kid friendly. Not far from manitou springs.

Nestled between two highways, these cabins provide convenient access to local activities and attractions. Budget-friendly with no frills. Some units have updated kitchenettes and updated bathrooms; others need some attention. Kitchenettes are very minimally stocked but you can ask for what you need at registration.

We stayed at El Colorado from 2nd-4th July (3 nights) in Cabin 26. It has 2 small rooms, with a King bed and a Queen bed. Cabins have their own patio/picnic tables outside.We enjoyed it despite a few drawbacks. We wanted to stay in a place with character and it definitely has that.The location is great and it is close...

Loved the cabin. We were in #11. The first day one of the tvs stopped working. We didn't bother complaining, not there to watch tv. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back. 5-20 min from everything. Our kids thought that was great. Manitou Springs was a lot of fun. Me and my son went hunting all the...

My husband and I stayed in cabin 29 (a duplex unit) for two nights. There are three beds total: one downstairs, with a mini-fridge, microwave and table for 2; another bedroom upstairs with 2 full beds and a bathroom with shower/tub. Fireplace is decorative only. Very comfortable, spacious. Easy to find, nice location near the entrance of the Garden of...

I really like the ambiance of this retro (actually original) adobe-style travel court with individual little cottages in the Southwest style. In the winter some of the cottages have working fireplaces which would add to the "cozy" factor. Also, the furniture is original Monterey style from the 1940's or so. There is also a children's play area in back and...
