Hubby and I were in town for a few days in March 2017 and chose to stay at Colt's. It is a renovated motel with 11 rooms and is adults only. Colt's is gorgeous; they have meticulously redone the facility. The rooms are cozy and have microwave, fridge, hairdryer, etc. and comfy beds; hubby and I slept very well! The...

Our Room #5 at Colt's Lodge was unusually spacious and well-decorated. The shower is also extra-large, though the bathroom is small. The bed was comfortable and there were several pillow types from which to choose. We slept well. The walls are thin but the neighbors were well-behaved! There is a refrigerator in the room but no iron or ironing board...

Dear Susan M Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. We have three ironing boards and irons for the guests use. (Hope this helps for your future stays with us).

Colt's Lodge was the perfect spot for my wife and I to get away from winter and relax. The proprietors and the staff were friendly and inviting. The atmosphere was laid-back. The entire complex is small so everything is close. The mission style walls surrounding the grounds give the perfect amount of privacy. The rooms had been updated in 2013-14...

Dear rauschaccounting We are so glad you enjoyed your stay enough to extend it. We shut down the hotel in June of 14 and reopened in June of 15 so we are only in our second year under the new name and design.

Friendly staff, quiet, beautiful garden & pool. Great adults only lodging. Staff are attentive & very helpful but not over bearing. Close enough to the main dining & shopping but quiet location. Recommended for couples looking to relax.

Beautiful grounds and nice, comfortable and clean rooms. Breakfasts delicious with fresh fruit and yoghurt every morning as well as choices of bagels and pastries. Coffee available 24 hours a day. Near main road so light sleepers might find this a problem.

Better than the pictures, this a unique, characterful hideaway in plain view. Perfectly located for desert excursions, shopping, clubbing or walking to one of a few restaurants nearby. Yes. I said walking. We had the room off the main living-room style lobby and had misgivings about 'sharing' our area with early morning break-fasters but all was well. The real kitchen...

Stopped to ask about having a wedding there. The two hosts could not have been more gracious. We had a tour of the various accommodations as well as the garden and pool area.

Dear John L Thanks for a wonderful review of Colt's Lodge. I hope you find it suitable for your upcoming wedding plans. We have been having a great response for our weddings. We are hoping the mini Airstream grows up to be a full sized BAR in the future.

We were very disappointed in Colt's Lodge. After all the glowing reviews, we were really looking forward to our stay. We found the manager to be rude and very unfriendly. The breakfast was nothing like in the pictures. There certainly weren't any pastries. And when I asked for some milk, I was rudely told to get it in the refrigerator....
