Cheyenne Mountain Resort
Travel Blogs from Colorado Springs
Today we got up at 8 and I have to say I was really dragging. I think I need a whole day to just sleep. We called Pike's Peak and they said they were open through 15 (2 more miles than yesterday). It seemed sunny but we decided it wasn’t enough to scrap the zoo. I have wanted to go to Cheyenne mountain zoo since it was recommended to me. They …
We started today at 8 am deciding what we should do. We chose Pike's Peak because I really wanted to get to the summit which is the only 14er I have the shot at this late in the game. I tried Mt Evans but we only got to summit lake and the peak was closed. Well we drive all the way over there and get to the entrance gate at the guy tells us to …
Last night after dinner the wind picked up and whistled through the open windows. We thought we might get a storm but nothing came. I didn't sleep well. It was strangely warm in the bedroom even though we turned off the heat. I was awakened at 2:45am by a strange alarm sound. Possibly an alarm of our neighbors. I was awakened the night before by …
Today we had a 150 mile section through the grasslands of Colorado before the gravel Regularity Test close to Springfield. There are lots of cattle roaming the fields and many in cramped pens close to the road, presumably waiting for slaughter. The flat terrain is now beginning to undulate and as we approach Colorado Springs the mountains can be …
Wat ik vergeet te vertellen is dat ik deze vakantie helemaal nog niet heb gereden, dat bevalt me erg goed en het bevalt San ook goed!
Dit terzijde, na weer rond 7 uur wakker te zijn geworden, hebben we eerst zitten brainstormen over de rest van onze route tot aan Las Vegas. Het is qua hotels best lastig om iets te vinden wat nog niet bezet is. …

Historical Traveler Reviews Cheyenne Mountain Resort Colorado Springs
My husband and I stayed here in October for a week, and it was a very beautiful and scenic facility with very good food and very good service. The room we had was huge, with a bathroom with granite countertops, which was nicer than any I had been to in a long time. It is billed as a convention facility, but it appeals to golfers and those wanting good hiking, tennis, and work-out facilities, as well. The views of Cheyenne Mountain and the mountain golf course were excellent, and the surrounding area was just beautiful. My husband loved the course. We stayed here because we couldn't get a room at the Broadmoor, but ended up liking it so much, it was just a better fit for us, more of a Colorado Lodge feel. We drove into the surrounding residential areas, and deer walked freely around. As we went through a car wash, a deer was drinking the water from the car wash, very tame around here! The Garden of the Gods and all of the wonderful things that Colorado Springs and the nearby areas has to offer were very nearby. I would highly recommend this lovely lodge when in Colorado Springs!
Stayed there three nights. Room very clean, but view to mountains was obstructed. Screen door was off track, and sliding glass door did not lock. Other than that, beds were comfy, room immaculate, and facilities were teriffic. Would recommend this place again, especially to families!
Lovely accomodations. Only criticism is concierge services could be stronger. In all other areas the staff was polite and attentive. If you go in June as we did, plan your activities for the mornings when skies are clear. Nearby Tommy Ds is an excellent restaurant.
Nice location, average hotel
We stayed at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort last week because we were heading to the Royal Gorge Bridge over the weekend. The resort had wonderful views of the foothills and the 35 acre golf course. The rooms were average, handle on sink for hot water did not work. The walls are paper thin as someone had metioned before. Our hotel room was next to a group of young adults who had been in a wedding earlier in the day, they were extremely loud and we could hear every word they said...this activity carried on from 1am-4am, when(after calling the front desk 2 times,) someone finally came up to settle them down. I don't think this hotel should be a 4 star, it's only surviving due to it's location.
Less than 4 star
My husband and I went on a long weekend while our kids were at overnight camp in June 2004. For a 4 star rating, I was expecting glorious rooms. The rooms had been redone, but not the carpet. This was not 4 star. Plus, the beds should be pillow top if you are a 4 star hotel. The lodges are nice, but more rustic than we had hoped for. The restaurant is great, but you can only have the buffet. You can not order off the menu a la carte. This was dissapointing. The staff was very nice and gracious. But I was expecting a gorgeous room alittle better than a Hilton or Sheraton which I would compare this to.
Not a Good Choice
I stayed at this hotel in December 2003 to see my husband before he left for Iraq. There aren't too many things good about this hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious but the walls are paper thin and we could hear everything on every side of us. Because this hotel is on a great deal of property, we would ask about how to get to the workout facilities, tennis courts, etc. We asked three different employees who responded, "I don't know." The restaurant is expensive as well and they don't really make you feel welcome. We ate at the Broadmoor where the staff was extremely friendly and we weren't even guests. It was also less expensive. I would never stay here again. We just never received the service we had hoped for.
A must-see for anyone staying in the Springs!
I stayed at the CMR for business, but my stay was pure pleasure! The rooms were beautifully appointed, the views spectacular, and the dining room was to die for(not only the food, but the views, too!). But it was the little, important things that made my stay great, too. The bathrooms were clean, the rooms didn't have a musty odor, the staff was professional and friendly, the bed was comfortable. The cable isn't exceptional, with only 20 or so channels, and no movies. But I suppose most people who go there aren't there to watch TV.
Even though I was at the CMR in the off-season, I was able to appreciate the beautiful Rockies, and especially Pike's Peak which was right out of my window! I will most definitely come back here anytime--whether for business OR pleasure!
The Perfect Convention Site
I travel on business trips about four times each year. My colleagues and I have been to several other conventions locations throughout the US and I feel the Cheyene Mountain blows the doors off all the rest.
The staff and the service they provide is superior. The facilities are very nice also.
I knew nothing about this hotel until a friend who attended a meeting there told me about it. My husband and I play golf and were eger to try a new course. We got a $215 room rate that included golf and breakfast for Friday night and a $119 rate for the room only on Saturday so we could just drive around town. The food is absolutely to die for so be careful! The Sunday brunch was the best we've ever had anywhere!!!
Beware of extra "resort charge"
We were charges an extra $7.00 per day as aresort fee which was supposedly for the use of the resort facility pool and treadmill if we did or not use them. This was not disclosed untill we checked out and it was on our bill. I had made weekend reservations at $129.00 per night for a Friday and Saturday night. Because of the availabilty the Saturday night was raised to $159.00 per night. None of this was disclosed until we checked out and then it was not mentioned or explained untill I asked what a resort fee was for. I feel that this should be disclosed in the reservation and the facilities are a part of the resort for which I paid for in my reservation. This seems underehanded and decietful to not be informed up front.
