Our Colorado Springs Lodging Picks
Our lodging best picks in Colorado Springs include something for all price ranges and all types of stays. We've focused on The Five Star Resort, The Bed & Breakfast, The Hotel and The Cabin Rental.
Weve either personally stayed in these accommodations or have heard so many good reviews from friends and fellow travelers that we decided to include them in our list.
Our taste in lodging leans toward clean, quiet, functional, and affordable.
Ideally, we like choices that offer mountain views, or close proximity to nature, so you can enjoy the outdoor beauty of Colorado Springs.
Choices abound, of course, and there are many we'd like to include and haven't, but here is a quick list of our favorite picks in town and nearby.
THE 5-STAR RESORT: The Broadmoor
The Broadmoor Hotel & Resort is the premier luxury resort in Colorado Springs. Very Great Gatsby out West. In the shadow of Cheyenne Mountain, this is a beautiful, sprawling compound of opulence.
Cafes, Lounges, Golf Courses, Tennis Club, Spas. It even has its own lake. Weve driven around the resort grounds and its quite a sight.
Their annual holiday lights displays are truly impressive, and attract many locals every Christmas.
The Broadmoor has been lauded with numerous awards, and its been positively reviewed in countless magazines and television shows.
We cant comment on the service yet, as we havent experienced The Broadmoor first-hand, but were guessing youll get what you pay for.
This is a top choice for people seeking a five-star golf vacation, as they have 3 championship golf courses. They have also hosted PGA Matches, the US Senior Open, and the US Women's Open. Golf Digest considers it one of the Top Ten resorts in North America and has rated it #1 in Service.
Room Rates: $160-$350
1 Lake Avenue
THE BED AND BREAKFAST: The Inn at Cascade
This southwestern style Inn is located in one of our favorite areas, the foothills below Pikes Peak right in the town of Cascade. It's really more of a neighborhood up in the mountains, and the location is fantastic. It doesn't get any more mountain getaway than this.
Room Rates: $109-$169 depending on the suite.
Innkeepers: Sheri and Tom Schwagart
THE HOTEL: Hyatt Summerfield Suites
The Hyatt Summerfield Suites are a great Colorado Springs lodging option if you like or need a little more room than a hotel offers, and especially if you like to cook your own food on vacation.For the same rate as a standard hotel room (does anyone else feel like youre stuck in a box in a standard hotel room?) the Hyatt Summerfield Suites basically give you a small apartment, complete with a very functional kitchenette.
These suites surprised us. The service was excellent, the rooms were clean and modern, and there was a business center that let us surf the net at all hours. Very cool. Also has a 24-hour fitness center. Bonus.
Located farther north in the city than our other picks, this is still a solid choice due to its close proximity to I-25, the main thoroughfare. We stayed here for a wedding weekend, and were very happy with it.
Room Rates: $89-$129
5805 Delmonico Drive
THE CABIN RENTAL: Mariposa Cabin
If youre looking for a mountain cabin escape, this little place should do the trick. Its our favorite cabin hideaway. Located about ten minutes west of Colorado Springs in Green Mountain Falls, the Mariposa Cabin is a charmer up in the foothills.
Surrounded by trees and within hearing distance of a waterfall, this 1930s cabin has one bedroom, one bath, an open main living area with a couch, chair, TV, and fully equipped kitchen. Its perfect for a couples getaway or a solitary escape if you love a rustic outdoors experience.
Youre only a few minutes from all the Pikes Peak regions attractions, and Green Mountain Falls itself is a fun little town to explore. Within walking distance, theres a fountain and gazebo, and we visited the town swimming pool several times when we stayed.
Or just sit in one of the Mariposa Cabins lounge chairs on the deckits a great place to have a cup of coffee and gaze at the amazing views.
Rates: $65/night or $390/week
(719) 633-1524 or (719) 632-9453
Also check out the motels on the west side of town near Manitou Springs.
If you're looking for something more affordable, and/or with some kitsch factor and amazing mountain views, these might be for you.
Hope that gives you a start on some great choices. If you have any "must visit" lodging ideas, please let us know below!
