Historical Traveler Reviews Cheyenne Mountain Resort Colorado Springs
Loved Cheyenne Mountain Resort
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.
Wonderful weekend escape
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!!!
There is a country club next to the hotel and the golf course was beautiful next to the mountains and enjoyable to play. The fitness center was very nice and I loved the big pool by the beach and lake.
There was a temporary changing building by the pool due to some kind of contruction there.
Above it all, we felt the staff was very friendly and always eager to please. The people in the dining room were happy to see us and we don't feel that kind of welcome when we visit other hotels. One complaint is there aren't many other shops and restaurants nearby. It's in a nice residential area that's very peaceful and quiet. Maybe you can't have it all but if you are looking for to relax and getaway, this is the place!
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.

We stopped in Boulder, a short drive from Estes Park. Unfortunately it was a fairly dreich day so we didn't get the best view of the (normally) imposing Flatirons. However, Boulder itself felt like quite a cool, liveable place with an outdoorsy feel and a lot of independent shops on the Pearl Street Mall. A book for Cameron and a much needed pair …
Today was a busy one! Since we lost yesterday to rain, we had some catching up to do. So we began the morning at The Garden of the Gods, a beautiful city park with huge red rock formations. It was still somewhat cloudy, but that didn't get in our way. We took a nice, easy hike around the park and explored the formations. When we left we found ourselves in Manitou Springs, a small, quaint historic western town with lots ...
... out of the Springs, paying a cab $50 (not accounted for in the aforementioned costs) to get to the consulate early, I was told that in fact I would have to come back in the morning to pick it up. Ellen agreed to pick it up the next day, since picking up is an exponentially easier and faster process than dropping off. Luckily, however, I forgot to give her the receipt before I left town. Good job, Ellen. After getting Ellen the receipt, paying the overnight ...
