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...

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!

Rooms 15-18 were clean with new TV and 2nd bedroom is very friendly for children (2 double beds in BR 2, King in main room) Kept to much better standard than reported in prior reviews. Recommend for family mountain vacation.

This is the second time our family stayed here. Not fancy but there were comfortable beds and a serviceable kitchen.Pool and hot tub are great. Not a lot of housekeeping-clean towels and coffee but many times the beds weren't made. Not a big deal to us but might be to some. Staff were very accommodating. We will likely stay here...

A great place to visit to acclimatise to us time. We liked the local town of Manitou springs. An ethnic feel, with veggie resturants and mystic shops. Disliked the noise from the freeway just behind the lodges. Liked the pool, hot tub and staff. Gave us pool towels and basketballs to play out he back.
