I booked this place last minute based on other reviews. It turned out to be a great choice. The staff is friendly, the location is perfect, and they're pet friendly. If you are traveling with your pet during peak tourist season I recommend calling to book a room instead of booking though a third party(Orbitz, Priceline, etc.), there are 3...

Loved our room! We had a great kitchenette, living room and bedroom. The lodge is inviting with its grand fireplace and comfy chairs. It was the perfect spot to visit with other guests and the fabulous staff and owners!

Our church had a marriage retreat for around 20 couples (40 people total). We could have fit a few more with classroom style seating in their lodge - so maybe 50 total could fit. But for us it was a great local setting - nice rooms, good beds, family atmosphere, friendly staff, unique setting with feeling like you are walking...

Thank you dtenpas for your wonderful review and comments about our rooms and staff. The marriage retreat was our first since purchasing the property in June and we hope to host many more. It was a great use for our property and we're able to make it very affordable in the slower winter months. We're glad you enjoyed it and...

Finding out that the Buffalo Lodge was pet friendly was already good enough in my book as it allowed me to spend New Years with both my wife and our 15 year old dog, but that was just the tip of the iceberg! Not only is the staff truly amazing and was there for any of our needs, but it's...

I decided to take my husband and dog to a family getaway at this lodge on the edge of the Garden of the Gods park. My dog entered the room and immediately felt comfortable with a little dog pad just for her. The room was newly remodeled and warm and cozy. This is a great location nestled in the foothills...

No frills, but friendly and reasonably clean. It was nice to be able to park right in front of the room. Cons- the air conditioner pulled in smoke from the neighbors smoking outside. This was less than pleasant, especially because the smoke was both tobacco and cannabis. While there are restaurants within walking distance - beware. There are no sidewalks...

Thank you for your 4 star review. We are working to renovate the property since purchasing it in June. As far as the smoke, while we are marketing our hotel to outdoor recreation and bicycle tourists, and all of our rooms are non-smoking, the smoke has been somewhat troublesome for us. We do appreciate those abiding by our non-smoking room...

I reserved a room for one night. Was a little unsure based on some comments on here. The check in lodge building and office has an old west feel. Kinda cool. There are a series of buildings that have two rooms in each. This made it nice from a noise perspective. Had a street running through the middle of it...

We stayed here one night......Sept 10 to Sept 11. After reading reviews here and on booking.com I felt we were probably getting"bang for our buck".....and Buffalo Lodge was closer to the things we wanted to do. Our king room (#109) was newly remodeled with new carpet,new paint,and perhaps some new bathroom fixtures. .....and new TV. The staff was attentive,friendly and...

I was excited to finally stay at one of the iconic hotels near Manitou Springs, but was sorely disappointed by the Buffalo Lodge. We had a room with two beds and a kitchenette. When we walked in the room, it smelled like old cigarette smoke--instant turn off, especially after having just been told there was absolutely no smoking in the...

Julie, we are so sorry to hear about your experience and wish we had the opportunity to address it, offer another room and see if we could make a great stay here before it was too late. While this hotel is nearly 90 years old, definitely rustic and looks like an old western town and there should be a certain...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family-owned, vintage hotel with a western theme. The Buff is your base camp for adventure and a great place to relax after a long day hiking, biking and exploring the sites of the Pikes Peak region. Located on a popular designated bike route connecting Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, we are in close proximity to countless miles of biking and hiking trails at the base of Pikes Peak, and are less than a mile from the majestic Garden of the Gods Park, voted the #1 Park in the U.S. and #2 in the world on Trip Advisor. Our rooms currently are nothing fancy. We purchased the property in June 2016 and are working to renovate. Our first suite renovation to a bicycle-themed, bicycle-friendly, group suite that sleeps 5 - 11 people with a kitchen, family room and private yard is now complete and available to rent. Other rooms sleep from 1 - 6 people and range from $75 for a single Queen to $145 for group suites with kitchens and $159 for our king hot tub suites. ... more   less
