We stayed in July. The hotel room was clean, the pool was great. Not sure why the last review commented on the pool, both the kids and I used the pool and it was fine. The bathroom in our room was very small. The TV was an old, small tv but we weren't in the room much so that didn't...

When looking for a place to stay with our three kids in Manitou, we had two requirements - a pool and wifi. Turns out neither panned out here. Once we arrived we asked about the wifi. "Well, you sort of have to be in the office or near the pool because the signal won't reach into the cabins." So, for...

We provide internet cables in all cabins for internet access. We advertise internet service not wifi. Wifi may be accessed in our office, front porch and by the pool but not in the cabins due to the steel mesh & concrete blocks used to build these cabins (an excellent sound barrier). Colorado & Manitou Springs is known for our high...

We stayed 1 week in a 2Q,shower only cabin. There was 1bed room with a door and the other bed was in the main room like you would find in a regular motel. There was a small fridge and microwave.No coffee pot in the room but did ask at check in and was given one with packets of coffee. Each...

We arrived to discover that the room we had reserved was uninhabitable because a previous guest had spilled milk on the carpet. The hosts had already moved us to a two room adobe and did everything they could to make sure we had a good stay. This turned out to be the perfect place for us to sleep while we...

We had stayed here years ago. This time, we were traveling with dogs over the Christmas holiday. I wanted a room large enough to hold two large folding dog crates since we would be a week. We got a cabin with two rooms - it was great since I am early riser and husband is not. Dogs and I could...

We stayed at the El colorado Lodge last weekend and had the best time ever. Our cabin was abosolutly charming. We had a cozy fire both evenings there. The cabins are spotless and the service was top notch. The owners are truly the nicest people we have ever met. We have already made a return reservation for December and plan...

This was the second time I've stayed at El Colorado Lodge in Manitou Springs. The rates are great ($49-79/room depending on bed size). This time, I stayed in a king room with a fireplace. It actually had two bedrooms with a bathroom. The rooms are a good size and would be fine for a small family. This isn't a typical...

We picked the El Colorado Lodge on a whim as we drove through Manitou. It was an excellent choice! Ended up with a 2-room, 3-bed lodge which was more room than we needed. The place had a quaint cabin feel and we slept well with the windows open. In the morning I found two deer roaming the lawn behind our...

El Colorado Lodge is a very quaint lodge in the cute little town of Manitou Springs. It is very affordable and in a great location. It isn't very modern, but perfect for a mountain retreat and relaxing time. It's literally 5 minutes from the beautiful Garden of the Gods and many other attractions. Easy to find and very accommodating!
