Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.

  • Nice place to visit! Close to Colorado College. Always interesting to wander through this place. They change out the art fairly often so there is always something new to see.
  • This museum is nice a good size with a nice variety of art. Clean, spacious and made for a nice outing. The art collections were a good variety and covered several centuries in time. I would go back when they get some new collections.
  • Incredible collection. Rembrandt etchings worth it alone. Southwestern art fantastic.
  • My wife and I attended the best performance of Man of LA Mancha that we have ever seen! My wife is disabled, and in a manual wheelchair, the ushers and other staff at the theater were extremely thoughtful and very helpful to me and my wife.
  • Lovely place... Everyone should especially cause its free!
