I'm not a complainer. I have travelled a fair amount and am happy being a budget traveller as I often find that budget accommodations can be little gems with lots of character and a place to meet some wonderful, down to earth people. Sadly, this was NOT our experience at Rainbow motel. On the plus side, the woman owner seemed...

Yes unfortunetly I hate to admit but previous cleaning stuff did a mediocre job. Upon inspection of the rooms we find out a lot of discrepancies so we were forced to let them go and hire new housekeepers and we will keep close eye on them. Once again sorry for your unpleasant stay and we promise to do a lot...

Advertising is misleading, we rented the "cabin" thinking it would be, you know, a cabin.... It was simply two rooms with a connecting door on the property. Rooms were surface cleaned but not deep cleaned. Carpet and beds looked like they were all from the early 80's and had a Goodwill used feel to all the decorations and bed coverings....

It is a cabin that you can rent as a whole or as separate units. It is your right whether you like or not. We checked the plumbing with you several times and it was working fine. So I figured I be better off with you gone since you never liked the place. Our stuff is doing good job cleaning...

Early April, so things are slow, but the management is using the time to give the place some upgrades. Standard room was average sized and was clean and comfortable. The place is old style with at door parking. I like that! Close enough to amenities, and walking distance to food. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again,...

My sons and I were looking for an affordable place to stay the night and were pleasantly surprised by the Rainbow Motel. The surrounding area may look a little sketchy especially late at night but the accommodations were a lot better than expected. The rooms were quite large and clean and the staff was very easy to work with.

We payed a fair lower price and so we expected something run down. We were actually quite comfortable and were left to ourselves. Yes it's a little dated, but that is where we found its charm. So we will be back March 2017 and we hope this will become a pleasant annual getaway!

Our hotel room was just what we needed for us. We were not planning on staying in the hotel as we wanted to be in town and outside enjoying our surroundings. But it was perfect for my husband and I. There was a porch that looked out on the mountains from the back our room. Just breathtaking.

Had booked for two nights, ended up staying 4. This is in a great location, not too noisy but everything seemed close by. The room was exceptionally clean, well appointed and recently updated. The owners were very nice and helpful, cont. breakfast was adequate. You cannot stay in a better place for the price! The wifi was slow but okay....

They knowingly rented me a room that the roof was being torn off of at 7am the next morning without ever saying a word about it to me and it's not like I had a reservation and pre paid or anything I was there with cash then so they absolutely should have told me this but no they don't care...

I used this as my base for 5 nights for hiking & sight seeing around Colorado Springs. I had a king bed w/kitchen room. The bed was really comfortable. It was a large room. It's an older hotel so the room was worn but I was gone all day and returned to eat and sleep. I rather pay less $$$...
