... for sure. We stopped at the marina and took a look around. Because the water fluctuates so much with the opening of the damn, the ramp is very long ( or short depending on the water level). On this day the water was very low and the ramp was extremely long. Just walking up you felt like you were climbing a mountain. We met a lovely couple with a dog (of course) just coming off their boat from a day of fishing. They didn't catch much today but had a good time ...
... on 70 to Limon CO and took state road 24 southwest to Colorado Springs. Not as scenic as Missouri and Kansas - no crops just scrub land with some small cattle ranches. Mile from motel came to stop as road ahead closed. Brief and heavy storm had caused mudslides. Hour and half later finally made motel.
We are staying in Manitou Springs a small ...
... br> The morning was bright and sunny. And hot. Already humid the temperature is heading to 97 today. Mike made bacon and eggs. I like occasionally eating out but I really don’t think many places match a real home cooked meal. Making a nice meal in the RV feels like an accomplishment and I swear the food takes twice as good as the same at home.
Mike is taking care of the outside and I am trying to clean the ...
... was behind me and would not stop kicking my seat the entire flight. I couldn’t help but think how nice it would have been if we had switched seats…so he could have kicked the douche bag’s seat the whole flight. But nope. I was stuck in a loser sandwich for 3 hours. But one thing I did note…As we were landing everyone…douche bags included all looked out the window. The land looks so beautiful from above …so ...
... to the town and ski area. The next morning, we drove to Great Sand Dunes National Park - another extraordinary experience. It was unlike anything we've ever seen and even in the blazing sun, the kids were willing to hike, climb and jump in the sand.
We have now arrived in Colorado Springs where we will stay until we head east next week- there is much to do here! Current stats:

Historical Traveler Reviews SilverWood Hotel & Conference Center Colorado Springs
My wife and I stayed for 5 nights at the Silverwood Hotel during our pack-out and subsequent move from Colorado Springs. We knew the managing partner from previous stays at a hotel he had managed a few years ago and were quite curious about his new project.
We would stay here again! The hotel has recently been remodeled and has great beds. The bathrooms still need a little work to get them looking newer. The made to order breakfast was great! This was a great deal. The parking lot was a little hard to get in and out of to the main street.
We had a really nice stay at this hotel. The beds were very comfortable and they had tons of pillows. We got a palor room for our extended family to hang out in and it was awesome! Pool was great too.
The best thing about this hotel is the made to order breakfast made for guest daily. They make excellent omelets, pancakes, and other special requests. They are also in an excellent location near restaurants and the interstate. Lots of bunnies to see on the property...
Great Hotel (Would stay again)
We were pleased with accomadations, staff, service, free full breakfast and attitude of employees. We stayed from 8 Jun - 12 Jun 2006 and highly recommend this Hotel. (Note: Last year's reviews do not reflect the improved conditions after new management has taken effective control.)
Tropic lightning Reunion
We check into the hotel on the 24th of May and I cannot say enought about the service we recieved from the Hotel Staff. We had over 20 Rooms and everone had a wonder Time. The Staff know how to take care of its Guests. The Management was great and the Resturant was fantastic as was the Bar. We also had a Sunday Evinging Banquet the meal was Exquisite. The Breakfast was fantastic one monring even the owner prepared the Breakfast for our Group. I Would highly recommend thes hotel for a Groop meating or a extended stay. We Checked out on the 30th of May it was a wonderful Time.
Very nice hotel
Even though the earlier posts say that the hotel is in need of renovations and/or dirty, we just stayed there in May 2006 and I can say with certainty that the renovations have been completed. Our room had new carpet, new paint and new wallpaper. The room had a nice clean smell and feel to it. The breakfast (that is included) was very nice. You go tell the chef what you want, and he prepares it in just a few minutes. They also have a "cold" bar with fruit, juices, yogurt and dainishes as well as hot and cold cereals. The nightly manager's reception (also included) was also very nice. Beer and wine are free from 5:30 to 7:30 nightly. Hotel was just off Interstate 25, but there was no highway noise like in other hotels. I would HIGHLY recomment this hotel. Good value!
Enjoyed the stay
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It's true that the fittings were ageing but the hotel was undergoing renovation during our stay. Despite this the place was clean and tidy, the staff were very polite and helpful and the free breakfast was excellent.
The location was fairly quiet and convenient for local attractions, the rooms were large and we had no problems with hot water!
We would no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
