        A good place to stay.


        I stayed at this motel for two nights in early June 2006 (I had previously booked one night, but a last minute change of plan, not my fault, led me ask them if I could arrive a day early, and they agreed). The various reviews had led me to expect it to be good, and indeed it was. I was allocated a large room with plenty of space for the king bed it had. The room was well equipped (including an iron). Although facing north on a busy road, the room was quiet at night. A light breakfast was available at reception each morning, as was a local newspaper (which was left outside my bedroom door). The only slight complaint I had was that the rather silly shower head in the bathroom produced a strong but narrow spray of water that was uncomfortable to stand under. There are few restaurants and other shopping facilities about 5 to 10 minutes walk up the road to the west of the motel. The Pike's Peak cog railroad depot is, of course, a short drive away.

        Great place, large rooms


        We decided to stay here instead of the Super 8 because of the reviews. That shows the value of TripAdvisor. The Super 8 looked horrible and the Villa Motel was excellent. We stayed 2 nights and were impressed by the large clean room. It included a fridge, iron and board, hair dryer, coffee maker and good sized TV with HBO. The pool was small but nice. Our room was very quiet and dark. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was very good. We even got the morning newspaper. Our view was pleasant and the hotel is fairly close to shopping. We feel we found a place we will continue to stay at during our future visits.

        Loved it


        I stayed at the Best Value Inn with my two children and loved it. The rooms where very clean, the property was great we enjoyed the pool and hot tub every evening. The Front Desk person Michelle was very helpful and joy to talk to. She was very informative about the arear and the thing s that we would like to do. We will definitly be back.

        Super Clean, Great Location, Great Staff


        My husband and I were here for our anniversary and truely enjoyed our stay. The rooms were super clean and the staff incredibly helpful. I really feel you couldn't find another place as great especially for the price!! Location is the best for seeing all the great stuff (Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, etc.) We will definately be back!!!

        Great stay Best Price in Manitou


        I really enjoyed my visit at the Americas Best Value Inn Villa Motel. The staff was very friendly and helpful with locating an excelllent restaurant within walking distance (The Stagecoach). The room was spacious, clean and well maintained. Breakfast was great to grab and go small but adequate. I will stay again year after year!

        Great place to stay!!! Very affordable!!


        My husband and I didn't want to spend another night in Cripple Creek, but didn't want just a typical, plain motel room for our last night before heading home either. I found the Villa Inn in a Manitou Springs visitors guide. When I called the 800 number, I was told there was no vacancies, however, I gave the local number a shot.

        Not only did they have a vacancy, I was able to get the hot tub suite I was wanting. We were still 45 minutes away, and I realized that my credit card was in my purse in the trunk. Not only did they hold the room for us, but also gave us a discount. For the hot tub suite, with king size bed, a newly renovated room, microwave, refrigerator, and much more, we paid right around $80.

        The women at the front desk were very pleasant and friendly, as was their "watch" dog. We will definately be back!!

        For those who do make it here, I highly recommend the "Order Inn" menu. While it took almost an hour for the food, it was well worth the wait - gourmet calzone for two, and two salads!! And the dessert.....cheesecake.......was some of the best we've ever had!!

        Great stay at the Villa Motel


        My wife and I stayed at the Villa Motel in Manitou Springs, Colorado for three nights in August 2005 The room was very clean and comfortable. We had a spacious room with two queen beds and a fully stocked kitchen. The bathroom had two sinks and was also spacious. Although we were located in town and not far from the street, we were not disturbed by any sounds. I would highly recommend this motel for it's value, location and hospitality. Would be great for a family vacation.

        Great Value


        They were courteous and helpful. The pool was great and had a great view! The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable.

        Highly Recommended


        We stayed at the Best Value Inn Villa Motel for three nights while vacationing in Manitou Springs. I highly recommend this motel. The rooms are updated and clean, the location is convenient to Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak, the Cliff Dwellings, and Manitou Springs shopping and restaurants. The pool was very nice and clean, and the price was right. We would definitely stay there again.

        Clean and Friendly


        We stayed in Manitou Springs at the Best Value Villa Motel not really knowing what to expect. We found that this location is an excellent spot to stay at while touring the Colorado Springs vicinity. It is out of the busy city and has a nostalgic feel to it. The Garden of the Gods and Cliff Dwellings are very close to the hotel. The room was basic and clean with air conditioning. We stayed in an older unit with a carport that was really handy for loading and unloading. The staff is very friendly and they live on the premises. They serve a nice continental breakfast until 10 a.m. The outdoor pool was nice and warm and the jacuzzi seats about 8 people. Pikes Peak is right there as you walk out your hotel room door and there is a nice park across the street with a neat playground my 5 and 10 year kids enjoyed. We would stay here again!

        Today is just a travel day as we head down the mountain over to Manitou Springs for tomorrows ride on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. The Peak to Peak Highway is a scenic route between Estes Park and Central City. We began on US-7S, turned onto CO-72W, and then should have turned onto CO-119S to complete the Peak to Peak Highway ride. Unfortunately, …

        Today we have tickets to ride the Pikes Peak Cog Railway to the top of Pikes Peak - 14,115 ft. I guess that's about as high as you can get in the US without the use of illegal drugs. We have ridden the Mt Washington Cog Railway in New Hampshire, and the one here at Pikes Peak operates on the same concept except that the train is modern. But our …

        Lather, rinse, repeat--sort of. We were back out early again today to go to Manitou Springs for the start of a race--this time the Pike's Peak Marathon, during which 821 runners would run up Pike's Peak as the ascent runners did yesterday, only today's batch turn around at the top and run right back down again. This time it was David we were seeing off, and he was hoping to see us back at the finish a few blocks up the ...

        We started early today, heading to Manitou Springs by 6:30 to watch the start of the Pike's Peak Ascent--the half-marathon up the mountain to 14,114 feet. That's a 13.1 mile race that climbs roughly 7,000 feet in elevation. David's wife, Michele was running this today (David's turn comes tomorrow in the round trip). Neither Tim nor I had ever attended an event like this before, and it was quite an enjoyable spectacle, actually. We were warned about the parking problem, ...

        ... relocated from somewhere in southwestern Colorado to serve as a museum and tourist attraction with greatest emphasis on a gift shop where you can tacky gifts and other things. Lots of tourist suckers from Texas seemed quite impressed by it, though, and didn’t seem to get that it’s not at an authentic location.

        And then there’s Cave of the Winds, also a privately owned and run site. The cave is a natural cavern, and ...
