The Rainbow was very clean and we had everything we needed. Amazing place to stay and close to everything! It's close to the highway but you don't hear any of the noise. We didn't eat the breakfast so can't give a review on that but the staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely a unique stop on our way to Estes...

Clean, comfortable, and convenient to Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, and cute shopping districts. Travelled to Manitou Springs for a Pikes Peak bike trip with two teenagers. It's not always easy to book a room for three adults. Our room had a king bed plus a queen, which was perfect. Our splurge for this particular trip had been staying...

The fact that it isn't a chain hotel but a cute older hotel is nice. The rooms have been updated. The microwave didn't work and the water pressure in the shower was lacking. The staff was okay. I may or may not stay again.

We had a great weekend here. They have clean rooms, great staff, and great management. It's super close to Garden of the Gods and Incline. Great views! We will stay here every time we go back to Colorado Springs. Thank you for a great weekend.

If you are looking for a four or five-star accommodation, this is not the place. But if you are looking for an affordable, quaint location to rest your weary bones after visiting the Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak, then this is the place for you. The manager indicated that the motel had been expanded in stages over the...

We just retuned from a Labor Day weekend. We all agreed that it was perfect. There was 11 of us and the accommodations couldn't have been better suited. The executive suite was spacious and the kitchen was large and well equipped. We also rented a 2 bedroom cottage right next to the pool. It was very clean and comfortable. It...

Hard to get help, breakfast as noted was scarce and offered the same thing for several days in a row, even though the fruit started to rot. Marginally clean. Their friendliness varied on whether you were checking in or out. A plus was that it was conveniently located to several attractions. I didn't feel very safe there. I traveled alone,...

This little motel was a great choice for our trip. It was built in the 1940s and still carries that charm with it. This is a small place, no multistory chain. Staff was very helpful. Room was clean and nice. Again, nothing fancy but a comfy bed, a couple of decent chairs, a nice desk, and a simple small bathroom....

Rainbow Motel was a very affordable motel. We stayed one night while in Colorado Springs. The bathrooms are a bit small but the rooms seem very large with plenty of room. The breakfast that was provided in the morning was very minimal but for the price cold cereal and coffee is just fine.

Stay here if you aren't rich and want money to spend elsewhere. Quiet, clean, older, nothing special. We had a carport right next to our door. Easy unloading from the trunk to the room. Flat screen, fridge (hidden inside fake drawers in dresser!), microwave, spotty wifi. Breakfast is a bit on the cheap side. Muffins, cereal, juice, tea, coffee, milk,...
