Where to Stay in Colorado Springs

Recommended Posts

We’re flying into Denver and are planning something flexible (Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak) in Colorado Springs when we arrive.  Most of the crew plans to use Philtents, so we’re looking for a hotel for the 10 of us.  We’ll leave early in the morning for our first day of Philmont the next day.

Any suggestions for good places to stay in Colorado Springs?

Now that I look at the map, perhaps playing in Colorado Springs for the day and then driving 45 minutes toward Philmont and stay in Pueblo, CO, home to government pamphlets.  Hotels look cheaper there and we'd have a shorter drive in the morning.

What really matters is not where you stay, but what you eat. You must try the donuts on Pikes Peak. They are the best.

I budgeted for good food in Colorado Springs.  We're getting something good before 12 days  of "oh this is good only because I'm starving from all the hiking and I have no other choice" backpacking food.  :)

I booked the hotel with the fewest pictures of dead body carpet stains on Yelp in Colorado City, CO.  It's a little closer to Philmont than Pueblo.
