We pulled up and I was a little weary, but the instant we stepped into our room we were impressed! Great and attentive staff that were right there for whatever we needed, very friendly. Super value and perfect location and we're already planning our next trip back!

Looks run down from the outside but is remodeled on the inside. Nice bed, room. In the old part of town with other older motels. No breakfast, no ice machine to restock the cooler for traveling. Half of the front drive was blocked off when we were there, made turning in a little tricky.

Don't let the outside fool you, this place had the cleanest rooms and the softest bed sheets I have ever slept in. WiFi speed is a little slow but reasonable. I would definitely stay here again. The area is right in old Colorado Springs and has that old town america feel just up the road in Manitoa springs.

My wife and I stayed at the lodge and loved it. It was clean and comfortable. It may not look great from the outside, but don't judge a book by it cover. It's real close to places we wanted to visit and it's got pretty good view. I would definitely recommend Mel-Haven Lodge.

We booked this motel after reading reviews. Just exactly as stated, the outside is tired and if we hadn't read the reviews we would never had stopped here. The rooms however are spacious and spotlessly clean. Free coffee is supplied and the room was equipped with a fridge and microwave. Historic downtown district is a short drive although we just...

I really like that there where separate rooms. the blankets were so soft! the only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because the wifi was too slow to use. I also wished it still had the pool, that would have been enjoyable.
